For some reason, this has also become known as "Locations".

Presumably that's due to it being "an aural picture postcard from a foreign land but enriched with a palpable sense of the alien-ness of foreign culture which comes over so strongly you can taste it like a mouthful of pungent exotic spice. Released in 1998 and composed of many hours of site and ambiance recordings made around the globe in markets, temples, hotels, next door neighbors, gamelan orchestras, Indian mumbles, calls to prayer distilled into an intricately edited work and packaged in a folded foil stamped sleeve".

CD released on Fire Breathing Turtle in 1998.

"Seattle's gloriously weird Climax Golden Twins foist another montage of sneaky sounds upon us ... both sides of the white vinyl revel in turntable and tape manipulation and end with some recently-unearthed acoustic damage-beauty ... an imaginative and unpretentious approach to collaged sound."

7" released on Road Cone in 1996.

Climax Golden Twins - Live Vol. 2

First released by the band as a tape called "New York Radio", for the very good reason that it was recorded on a radio show in (you guessed it!) New York. Reissued on 10" vinyl by Anomalous.

Climax Golden Twins - Live In The 21st Century




A truly epic recording with the majestic "Blue Vapour" proving that they were always Sabbath worshipers ... altogether now "What Is This That Stands Before Me ... ?" and the drawn out golden climax of Steamy Column. Oh, and did I mention that Sir Richard Bishop guests on "Football Raga"? Happy Sunday one and all!

CDr released on Kabukikore in 2003.

Climax Golden Twins - Eerie Fragrance




This combines the impossibly rare Eyeless Fabrication tape from 1995 with the random and unreleased "Toyland" and a couple of tracks that are purportedly from the Climaxgoldenhiss tape. I'm not convinced by the latter claim but you can make up your own mind by visiting the implausibly great Union Pole Tapes bandcamp page.

LP released on Etude Records in 2009.

Climax Golden Twins - Imperial Household Orchestra




"Our first Full Length compact disc. Oh Boy! That's a whole mess of CGT to wade through. Our first effort with John freaking out with us the whole way through. I think Scott called it "an epic masterpiece" HA!".

Live Volume 4 is sometimes referred to as Imperial Household Orchestra but it's got nothing to do with this.

CD released on Scratch Records in 1996.

Climax Golden Twins - Fuck Ups




A wonderfully broken collection of live scuzz and barber shop floor extras.

Originally unofficial until the Twins heard it and agreed that it is really upping good and it was subsequently welcomed into the canon.

Bourbonese Qualk - Archive 1980 - 1986




Well, Bourbonese Qualk were a bunch of odd fuckers ... I only found out about them around 10 years ago which clearly renders most of my life a waste of fucking time. Ah well, never mind ...

Four LP set released on Vinyl-on-demand in 2016. Given the label, you can't be in any doubt that this is anything other than an extremely fine retrospective.
