“The Fall were an English post-punk band, formed in Manchester in 1976. The band existed until 2018 and was essentially built around its founder and only constant member Mark E. Smith. Initially associated with the punk movement of the late 1970s, the group’s music went through several stylistic changes over the years, but is often characterised by an abrasive guitar-driven sound and frequent use of repetition, and is always underpinned by Smith’s distinctive vocals and often cryptic lyrics...

Think these young'uns know about The Work?

"Subliminal Sounds, who released the highly praised Ta Det Lugnt album by Dungen last year, now presents a new and fantastic, and truly psychedelic, Swedish band: The Works. (The Works are also closely linked with Dungen, their lead singer and guitarist Andreas handled the bass playing for Dungen on their latest NYC trip, and several Dungen members guest the Works debut album). It is rare to come across a band that can straddle that vast canyon between...

German heavy classical rock duo formed aptly in 1969. They had an aggressive rock style, mixing in classical and avant-garde elements.
This is the first-ever legitimate reissue of either of their two albums in any format!

“The 1974 live DOUBLE-LP by this interesting Kraut duo, sees a welcome reissue. Sixty Nine played a mixture of symphonic prog and Krautrock, dominated by appealing vocals, exceptional Hammond organ and Moog outings and powerful drumming. Whether you like Frumpy, The Nice...

“The sole studio album by this interesting Kraut duo, originally from 1972, sees a welcome reissue on vinyl. Sixty Nine played a mixture of symphonic prog and Krautrock, dominated by appealing vocals, exceptional Hammond organ outings and powerful drumming. Whether you like.

Secret Oyster were a five piece Danish fusion/progressive supergroup of the 1970s, whose members came from the ranks of Burnin' Red Ivanhoe, Hurdy Gurdy and Coronarias Dans. This album, recorded in the fall of 1975, was the band's fourth and final album; the pressures of having recorded four albums in just over two years, touring constantly and being disappointed when the US branch Columbia broke their promise to the band to give them the same 'priority' treatment they had given to Weather Report...

This lovely record, their 1st and with the most psychedelia smeared onto their already impressive jazz/rock is back! Hugely recommended.
Secret Oyster were a five piece Danish fusion/progressive supergroup of the 1970s, whose members came from the ranks of Burnin' Red Ivanhoe, Hurdy Gurdy and Coronarias Dans. This was their first album, which was released in 1973, and which, I was surprised to realize, I had never actually heard before this reissue.
Having played this one a number of times now..

"Sea Son was originally released in 1974 on CBS and is now considered by many to be the pinnacle of the band's catalog. The fiery interplay between alto/soprano sax player Karsten Vogel, guitarist Claus Bohling and keyboardist Kenneth Knudsen parallel the work of their contemporaries Return to Forever and Mahavishnu Orchestra. With a new rhythm section of bassist Jess Staehr (Burnin Red Ivanhoe) and drummer Ole Streenberg (Coronarias Dans) the band found equal footing in the world of rock and jazz. The...

The catalog of the Danish jazz/rock band Secret Oyster have long been one of the most sought-after titles for release on CD; I can't tell you the number of times that people have requested one or another of their titles from us. Despite having been very popular in their day, none of the band's four albums have ever appeared on a legitimate CD. Until now! This is an absolute winner for fans of fusion.

2020 release from these very prolific (and also very good) bunch!

“This is the third full length record from the amazing studio sessions that lead to the 'Hallucinations Inside The Oracle' and 'Kybalion' records. These 5 tracks are hardly outtakes though. They show yet another side of the creative force that entered into the studio for 3 days in Nov. 2016.
Afrobeat inspiration, Miles Davis surfaces again, Tangerine Dream and some just psychedelic rock!”

“Totnes, Devon-based psychedelic rangers Magic Bus have been weaving together their own cosmic tapestry for 10 years with sources as diverse as the Canterbury scene, California jam bands, eastern mysticism, and '70s prog. There are some new and familiar sonic influences on this one... certainly a hint of The Grateful Dead, Gong and maybe even The Beatles... but very much the Magic Bus sound.”

“On their second album, Magic Bus continue their style of psychedelic-oriented, Canterbury-influenced music, once again producing material reminiscent of the angle that Land of Grey and Pink-era Caravan or Khan produced in the early 1970s. This time around, a bit more West Coast hippy folk rock influence is brought into the mix, with the album opener Sunflower in particular being rooted in that style, which makes this a bit more a mixed bag of an album. This isn't quite the amazing eye-opener that...

"Magic Bus have pretty strongly established their style in the two albums preceding new release Phillip the Egg, and they don't really deviate from it here - again, it's an intoxicated bland of Canterbury-esque whimsy (drawing largely on the warm humour of Caravan and the mystical interests of Gong) with West Coast hippy sensibilities, as well as tight jamming in the instrumental sections reminiscent of the overlap between Ozric Tentacles and You-era Gong. If that sounds like the sort of thing you'd....

This is an almighty drone release from a Swiss band. If you love “Outside The Dream Syndicate”, you won’t believe this one, as hurdy-gurdy and bagpipes buzz and drone on top of simple rhythms. YOW!

“Four slabs of impossibly heavy medieval folk-drone (or whatever, the specific genres are secondary here. First and foremost, this is sheer weight in auditory form). The length and repetition of these compositions produces a mesmerizing & hypnotic effect that will barrage and pound you into nothingness..

Until their “SWF Sessions” CD release, Jud’s Gallery were an excellent, unknown and forgotten band of the early 70s. This is the first time their two sole recordings (both for SWF radio) have been released on vinyl.

“Jud's Gallery recorded nine long tracks over two studio sessions in 1972 and 1974. Excellent intelligent progressive krautrock, drenched in occasional classic and heavy blues rock. These songs have been digitally remastered from the original tape to perfect studio quality. Jud's...

This was the very first (and one of the best and also the least ‘new-agey’) release by this duo who at this time were working in a more 'kosmiche' vein but with its own personality.

"Nice mix of sequencer based electronic music, fluttering flute, airy female voice and acoustic/electric guitar. Excellent atmospheres and even a few heavy rocked out moments towards the end that are well placed to add some much needed spice. A quite varied album, that needs a few listens to appreciate."-rateyourmusic.

An underservedly obscure German psychedelic jazz/rock band. By the time of this, their 3rd album, from 1974, they had their best-known line-up of:
Eddy Marron (guitars, sitar, zaz, tambura, mellotron, voice)
Reinhard Karwatky (bass, superstring, mellotron, synthesizer)
Peter Giger (drums, percussion)

Trippy tracks featuring Eastern/middle Eastern motifs, jazz fusion power & psychedelic mind expansion. Highly recommended!

“Double 200gm vinyl LP pressing. Consists of the original 1979 release on LP1, while LP2 presents the 2006 third edition on vinyl for the first time. The album has been mastered by Jason Mitchell at LOUD mastering from masters approved by Robert Fripp.

The term 'classic album' has been devalued somewhat through overuse, but if ever an album has proved worthy of the term it's Robert Fripp's 1979 solo debut Exposure. An invitation from David Bowie and Brian Eno in July 1977 resulted in his...

Joshua Abrams: double bass
Ari Brown: tenor saxophone
Jeff Parker: guitar
Gerald Cleaver: drums

“Sharp, deeply interactive, and soulful music; a brilliant quartet!”
