TICKET - AWAKE
LPS127 - BARCODE 4040824083991

Here's a hard dose of amazing guitar driven heavy psych from New Zealand's pride Ticket! Having served in several NZ 1960s bands like The Challenge, The Blues Revival or The Jamestown Union, members Paul Woolright (bass guitar, vocals), Eddie Hansen (lead guitar, vocals), Trevor Tombleson (lead vocals, percussion) and Ricky Ball (drums and percussion) got together as Ticket to perform an explosive electric mixture of bluesy psychedelic sounds under the influence of Hendrix, Cream, Traffic or Sly & The Family Stone, plus adding their very own touch and some funky rhythms in the same vein Atomic Rooster did in the era. Awake was the first of their two LPs, and it collected several songs that had been released as 45s during 1971, plus some extra material recorded specifically for the LP in 1972.

Eddie Hansen would relocate to Australia teaming up with another music legend, Harvey Mann. Ricky Ball became the back-beat of Hello Sailor. Paul Woolright would become part of the Pink Flamingo's and Hello Sailor. Trevor Tombleson changed his name to Trevor Richards, went to England and played in the Keith Hartley Band.
 
Originally released in Down Under in 1972, the Wah Wah reissue will come housed in a quality glossy laminated, three backflaps sleeve reproducing the original artwork, amazingly remastered sound and an insert with photos and liner notes. Limited edition of only 500 copies.

O.P.M.C. - AMALGAMATION
LPS128 - BARCODE 4040824084004

O.P.M.C. (Oldest Professional Music Company, as they were living in the famous Amsterdam Red Light District in those days) centered around Barrie Webb and Teun van der Slikke with different line ups during their existence. Other musicians in their recordings feature Frank van Tijn (drums), Peter van der Sande (bass, cello, elctric guitar, keyboards - plus he also did arrangements and production) and Onny Lopulalan (lead guitar), some of them having served in other interesting Dutch bands such as Apartment 1 or Serpentine. Even ex-Outsiders' legends Leendert Busch and Appie Rammers were at once among the O.P.M.C. line up!

"Amalgamation"was their first LP, released in 1970 and featuring a mix of psychedelic folk, drugged-out spacy guitar and haunting melodies that some sources have considered to be vaguely reminiscent of Love's Forever Changes.

On their second LP, "Product Of Pisces And Capricorn" from 1971, their sound has reached higher labels of sofistication, mixing the popsike path with 70's rockier stuff.

SUCK ELECTRÒNIC ENCICLOPÈDIC
ASFIXIA AL CARRER VALÈNCIA

LPS129 - BARCODE 4040824084028


http://youtu.be/nClP7YOIwQw


We are proud to present for the first time ever the lost 1976 / 1977 recordings by this legendary band from Barcelona. Suck Electrònic Enciclopèdic were born in 1975, in the last days of Franco's dictature, when Spain was awaking again to democracy and everything was possible. Even with the menace of an army too friendly to the old regime a fresh new breeze was spreading the change, and S.E.E. were an important part of its musical underground movement and the ones who brought influences from their kraut cosmische heroes Klaus Schulze or Tangerine Dream to it. The constant line-up changes (over 30 musiccians have been members of S.E.E. at one time or another, with some of them moving to other important projects of the era - like Neuronium, for instance) made it difficult for them to produce a consistent recorded work. Actually they only released one LP and it was already in the 1980's, but the recordings contained on Asfixia al carrer València where done in their early days, when they were at the peak of their creativity in 1976 / 1977. At that time they had a unique sound that no one else shared since they were building their own synthesizers and they were the only Spanish band to feature four keyboardists, and also one of the few to tour with bands such as Embryo, Etron Fou Leloublan, Potemkine or Henry Cow. They were part of the Rock In Opposition (RIO) collective along with Stormy Six, Univers Zero, Samla Mammas Manna, Art Zoyd, Art Bears, and other experimental progressive avant-garde outfits.
 
The Wah Wah LP is a selection of tracks from more than three hours of material that was recorded but never released. Plans for LPs produced by Kevin Ayers and Robert Wyatt were made, as others to record in France - first in Avignon's Free Son Studios under production from Daevid Allen and David Vorhaus with the collaboration of Shakti Yoni, and then in Tolouse's Tangara Studio with Jean Pierre Grasset from Verto - but they never materialised.
 
A phenomenal document of the electronic psychedelic sound that Suck Electronic Enciclopèdic were exploring in their early days, including plenty of photos and memorabilia to transport the listener to their world of science ficcion imagery, psychedelia and progressive experimentation that was to supply a lot of influences to many bands to come in the Barcelona scene.
 
Previously unreleased, recorded between 1976 and 1977, the Wah Wah issue will come housed in a quality glossy laminated gatefold sleeve printed on silver cardboard, remastered sound by Bob Drake (of Henry Cow fame), and featuring a 20 page booklet with photos and liner notes and a comic strip. Limited edition of only 500 copies.

MORMOS - ...THE MAGIC SPELL OF MOTHER'S WRATH...
LPS133 - BARCODE 4040824084059

For all those of you who enjoyed The Great Wall Of China, here is the second Mormos LP at last reissued! Again done in cooperation with Jim Cuomo, who provided two previously unreleased tracks for the bonus EP (which also has the two songs from their second 45), and again a fantastic masterpiece of gently crafted acid folk sounds with jazzy touches that will take you to the same lands The Pentangle or John Martyn have taken you before. The album is sure to appeal not only folk lovers, but also those into more prog stuff.
 
Originally issued in French CBS in 1972, the Wah Wah reissue reproduces the original glossy laminated sleeve and will come with an insert with photos and text by Jim Cuomo himself. As a bonus, a 7" p/s EP will be added featuring the band's second CBS 45 plus two previously unreleased songs from the era. Remastered from the original tapes by Roger Prades, this edition will be limited to 500 copies only. Get yours before it's too late!

PETER MICHAEL HAMEL - THE VOICE OF SILENCE
LPS134 - BARCODE 4040824084103

A few years ago we were lucky to be allowed to reissue some of Peter Michael Hamel works. Two LPs by Between (And The Waters Opened - now deleted - and Einstieg -a few copies still available) and the great Hamel 2LP (also deleted!) joined the Wah Wah catalogue. We would have wanted to go for the Voice Of The Silence too, an now we have finally got the kind permission to go for it.
 
Here is a much needed reissue of the sought after second LP by Peter Michael Hamel, originally released on the collectable Vertigo label in 1973. Hamel's experimentation with meditative and minimalist sounds is a further field of exploration for those into the likes of Terry Riley, LaMonte Young, Popol Vuh, Taj Mahal Travellers or Deuter - and will also appeal to those with interest in ambient and meditation musics.
 
From "A Few Thoughts on Composer PMH" by Terry Riley:
"...Peter's heart did not seem to be aligned alone with the post Webern traditions that had emerged so prevalently in Germany. His sensibilities were attracted more to American minimalism and Indian music and to some degree Rock and Jazz. In this sense he stands apart in the field of modern music of Germany. He has recognized the vast importance of improvisation and being 'in the moment' in music performance. He realizes the importance of experimentation and of finding new ways to notate his ideas. However, his music is at the same time rooted in the great German tradition and today he is recognized as a major figure whose compositions have greatly enriched the development of 20th and 21st century."
 
Originally released in Vertigo in 1973, the Wah Wah reissue will come housed in a textured sleeve reproducing the original artwork, remastered sound, and feature an insert with photos and liner notes. Limited edition of only 500 copies.

LPS126 - SEESSELBERG - SYNTHETIK I
BARCODE 4040824083816

 
All fans of modular synths,
electronic music pioneers and experimental recordings
MUST check this AMAZING youtube video!!!!!
 
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hh2yGKN6DKs
 
 
These were brothers Wolf & Eckhart Seesselberg. They pioneered the modular synth experiments in 1970's Germany just as their peers Beaver & Krause, Tontos Expanding Head Band or The Silver Apples did in the USA. Their performances often took place in art galleries or Modern Art museums, where besides their sounds they also offered seminars to instruct the public into the art of synthesizer sounds.
 
Wolf Seesselberg became an electronic music enthusiast through his work at the Hamburg Schauspielhaus and under the influence of Swedish composer Karl-Birger Blomdahl and his electronic tone generator. His brother Eckhart devoted all his passion into building his own synthesizer, a process that lasted over ten years!
 
The good news is that they did record their performances, and a selection of those tapes recorded between 1971 and 1973 formed their 1973 LP "Synthetik 1", which sees its first vinyl reissue ever now on Wah Wah Records. Containing a way out sound, often ignoring the principles of standard rhythm and melody in favour of adventurous experimentation with the endless possibilities of the sythesizer, it's one of the most underrated kraut albums that nonetheless deserves to be up there with the early works of Cluster / Kluster or Conrad Schnitzler.
 
The Wah Wah reissue corrects the original printing by offering it on silver board (like that of the first Silver Apples LP, or our recent reissue of Spacecraft - as it was originally conceived but not released probably due to budget limitations), features reproductions of original postcards to promote Seesselberg performance in kunst galleries and, of course, includes an insert with liner notes plus lots of previously unseen photographies by the duo at work.

LPS125 - THE LOVE MACHINE
ELECTRONIC MUSIC TO BLOW YOUR MIND BY

BARCODE 4040824083809
 

Hey fans of Free Pop Electronic Concept, Jimmie Haskell, Astro Sounds for the Year 2000, Pierre Henry or Les Maledictus Sound, here's one for you!

 

KILLER exploito psych LP from 1968 by the Love Machine, “Electronic Music to Blow Your Mind By!!!” – and trust me, it CAN be done – on the Design label. One of the harder-to-find exploito-psych albums with an absolutely KILLER psychedelic cover. Like all these studio cash-in albums, you need to approach this one in the right state of mind, and by that I mean altered. But the great thing about these budget albums is that someone behind the controls seems to be trying out ALL the latest psychedelic effects – stereo panning, phasing and whatever electronic gadgetry they had left over from the last time Beaver and Krause blew through town.  And so, if you can get past the fact that no REAL bands were involved here, this is still one heck of a BLAST to listen to! The Love Machine add in a steady stream of outer space synth and moog sounds, like some rejected soundtrack to an episode of “Star Trek” (the original one, kids, with William Shatner), all echoed and delayed in suitably “cosmic” fashion.

Remastered sound, killer sleeve with backflaps and limited to 500 copies only!

Wow, what a discovery! A previously unknown gem from 1970. Originally released on the ultra-rare Perspection label, this generous 30-minute jam feast of mind blowing psychedelia features two long tracks. Wah-wah, fuzz and tremolo dueling guitars, searing organs, spacey vibes and trippy percussion set the atmosphere, in that out-there psychedelic sound reminiscent of San Francisco's Summer Of Love and at the same time as hypnothic and adventurous as kraut rock innovators Neu!

First ever vinyl reissue, presented on textured sleeve and remastered sound in a limited edition of only 500 copies worldwide.

MORMOS LP




MORMOS BONUS 7"

LPS123 - MORMOS - GREAT WALL OF CHINA LP
+ BO

BARCODE 4040824083786

Recorded in 1971 and issued originally only in France by CBS, the first LP by post Spoils Of War band Mormos is a masterpiece of fabulous experimental psychedelic acid folk sounds and bizarre melodies. Influences from contemporaries such as The Incredible String Band are present, as are some resemblances to the recordings of other acts like Comus or Dr. Strangely Strange, but the Mormos sound creates unique athmospheres unheard in any other works of the era that can be fragile and weird in equal parts.

Jim Cuomo formed Mormos after his Spoils Of War project. The new group moved to France where they recorded two albums, "Great Wall Of China" being the first, now reissued in full glory in cooperation with Cuomo himself and with the upgrade of bonus tracks and a 7" EP and, of course, an insert with some notes from Jim Cuomo.

Limited to 500 copies only!

MAD CURRY LP






MAD CURRY BONUS 7"
LPS121 - MAD CURRY - S/T LP + BONUS 7"
BARCODE 4040824083571

Founded in Belgium in 1970 with a remarkable line-up for a rock band: sax, organ, bass, drums and vocals - no guitar!, Mad Curry caught the attention of manager & enterpreneur Louis de Vries (the man who had arranged the very first Pink Floyd gig in Belgium) and soon debuted with the "Song for Cathreen" / "Antwerp" 45. "Antwerp" has become a club favourite ever since due to its danceable freakbeat psych rhythm.


Shortly after, the Mad Curry album was released on the Pirate label, characterized by repeated time signatures that give a progressive feeling. Sax and organ bring a specific jazzy element in the performance and the unique high bluesy voice of Viona Westra is very recognizable. All this supported by a solid rhythm team which adds a psychedelic rock base to the mix. The album was housed in a beautiful, very original fold-out cover made by Jef Winnepenninckx. If you are into the sounds of UK bands like Affinity or Ghost do not miss this splendid classic of the Belgian underground scene.


First ever vinyl reissue, the Wah Wah edition is made with the help of Louis de Vries & the band, and comes with the bonus PS 7" of "Song For Cathleen" / "Antwerp", a reproduction of the gorgeous six panel fold-out sleeve and an insert with liner notes by Herman Permentier and cool unseen photos.

WBSLP017 RAMONCITO Y SU SALSA

limited edition of 300 copies only!
BARCODE 4040824083441
 
Ramon Pérez B., Ramoncito, was born in La Habana, Cuba, where along with dancers Alejandra del Rio, her sister Manuela Sandra and cousins Miriam and Reglita (artistically known as Las Mulatas del Caribe) and some local musicians formed a troupe that would soon be performing in dance venues through Panama, Ecuador, Peru, Chile, Argentina and Brazil. It was in Brazil were Spanish showbiz impresario Matías Coslada signed them and brought the troupe to Spain. Ramoncito is recognized as one of the introducers of caribbean rhythms in Spain, and since the very early sixties he has been a regular at the hottest nightclubs of the country. He established his residency in Barcelona, where through local label Discophon he released five splendid 45s that where compiled as an LP in 1978.
 
Reissued here for the first time, Ramoncito's 1978 album is a compendium of the hottest and best latin rhythms ever recorded in Europe, placing it up there with the best releases of legend labels such as Tico, Seeco or Fania, sharing influences and repertoire with the likes of Ismael Rivera / Cortijo y su Combo, Hector Lavoe, Hector Rivera, Willie Colón, Ray Barreto, Johnny Pacheco, a.o.
 
'Heavy salsa with a trans-Atlantic vibe -- great sounds recorded by Ramoncito in 70s Spain!  Ramoncito's Cuban by birth, but spent most of his time working overseas -- and the grooves here have a strong blend of Afro-Cuban roots with some other Central American touches -- a really wonderful style that makes the music a great new discovery.' (Rick Wojcik - Dusty Groove)
 
It comes in remastered sound, laminated sleeve and a gatefold insert with detailed liners written by Txarly Brown ('Achilifunk') and photos.
 
Ramon Pérez B., Ramoncito, nació en La Habana, Cuba, y junto con las bailarinas Alejandra del Rio, su hermana Manuela Sandra y sus primas Miriam y Reglita (conocidas artísticamente como Las Mulatas del Caribe) y algunos músicos locales formaron una troupe que pronto se encontraría actuando en salas de baile de Panama, Ecuador, Peru, Chile, Argentina y Brasil. Fue en Brasil donde el empresario del mundo del espectáculo Matías Coslada les contrató para traerlos a España. Ramoncito es altamente reconocido como uno de los introductores de los ritmos caribeños en nuestro país, y desde muy a principios de los sesenta ha sido un habitual de los locales nocturnos del país. Estableció su residencia en Barcelona, donde el sello local Discophon le editó cinco espléndidos singles que fueron recopilados en el LP de 1978 objeto de esta reedición.
 
Por primera vez disponible desde 1978, el LP de Ramoncito es un compendio de los mejores y más calientes ritmos latinos jamás grabados en Europa, estando a la altura de las mejores producciones de sellos legendarios como Tico, Seeco o Fania, y comparte influencias y repertorio con grandes del género como Ismael Rivera / Cortijo y su Combo, Hector Lavoe, Hector Rivera, Willie Colón, Ray Barreto, Johnny Pacheco, etc.

POPOL VUH

 
Wah Wah proudly announces the upcoming ULTIMATE reissues of the Popol Vuh discography!
 
Their first 5 LPs will be available in luxury vinyl editions in September 2013.
 
Made in coperation with Florian Fricke's family and SPV. High quality repros of the first five LPs by Popol Vuh with extra goodies: rare bonus tracks, insert with liners & rare period photos, bonus 7" on Hosianna Mantra, quality laminated gatefold sleeves faithfully reproducing the original artwork, mastered from the original tapes - top class legit editions for one of the big names in kraut music.
 
Popol Vuh, led by pianist and keyboardist Florian Fricke and with their name taken from the Maya mythology, were formed in 1969 and stayed active until Fricke's death in 2001.
 
In 1969 Fricke joined forces with Holger Trülzsch (percussion) and Frank Fielder (synthesizer, recording engineer and technical assistance) and they soon became one of the most interesting bands of kraut music's avant-garde, being pioneers in sounds that have later been categorised as ambient music, space / cosmic music or New Age music.
 
Other influential musicians from the kraut scene have been involved in the project through the years, so names like Djong Yun, Conny Veit (leader himself of another kraut legendary formation, Gila - actually Gila's last line-up was Popohl Vuh plus singer Sabine Merbach), Daniel Fichelscher (Amon Düül II, Gila), Klaus Wiese or Robert Eliscu (also a member of Between) are found at one moment or another in any of the 20 albums that Popol Vuh recorded through during its lifespan, which also include soundtracks to films by German director Werner Herzog like Aguirre or Nosferatu, among others.
 
Wah Wah is very proud to offer these gorgeous reissues of Popol Vuh's first five LPs,
which are issued in full luxury and each in a limited edition!

LPS116 POPOL VUH - AFFENSTUNDE
BARCODE 4 040824 083229


 
Issued on Liberty in 1970, the debut LP by Popol Vuh features Florian Fricke's Moog synthesizer experiments at it's most spirited wild. Supported at times by Holger Trülszch's percussion, flying free at others, the result has been labeled as a dark, unmelodic, unprecedented sound and it settled the path for many kraut adventurers to follow.
 
Reissued from the master tapes in quality vinyl pressing, full glory laminated gatefold cover and featuring bonus, an insert with liners and photos.

LPS117 POPOL VUH - IN DEN GÄRTEN PHARAOS
BARCODE 4 040824 083236
 


 
"In Den Gärten Pharaos" was originally issued in 1971, this time by Pilz, yet it wasn't precisely on the folk vein that Herr Rolf-Ulrich Kaiser was trying to keep the label into by those days. It's sound drinks directly from the same waters that brought Affenstunde, although there is a clear move towards some less dark passages, and the use of church organ as the main instrument, plus a first introduction into the ethnic music elements that Popol Vuh would soon mix into their cauldron bring new light to the sound.

LPS118 POPOL VUH - HOSIANNA MANTRA
BARCODE 4 040824 083243


  
With its religious theme it shouldn't be heretic to consider Hosianna Mantra as a small miracle. Suddenly the dark, unmelodic Popol Vuh offer us an incredibly beautiful work of amazing gothic folk that, this time, fit perfectly in the Pilz catalogue - yet managing to sound as something completely unique. It was originally released in 1972 and featured a host of musicians that included Conny Veit on guitars, Robert Eliscu on oboe, Djong Yun on vocals and Klaus Wiesse on tamboura, led of course by Florian Fricke who played piano and cembalo.
 

 
The Wah Wah edition features a bonus 7" w/PS that reproduces the original, rare 45 by Korean soprano Djong Yun featuring "Du Sollst Lieben" and "Ave Maria", written by Bettina Fricke and backed by Popol Vuh.
 
Reissued from the master tapes in quality vinyl pressing, full glory laminated gatefold cover and featuring the bonus 7" plus an insert with liners and photos.
 
Her only solo output known is this obscure single, which we've not encountered an original of in over 20 years (the Freeman brothers' Crack in the Cosmic Egg )

The fourth LP by Popol Vuh was originally released on Kosmische Musik in 1973. It follows the religious theme of its predecessor and features the line up of Florian Fricke with Conny Veit on guitars, Daniel Fischelscher on guitars and drums (he was the drummer of Düül II), Robert Eliscu on oboe, Djong Yun on vocals and Klaus Wiesse on tamboura.

LPS113 - DANTALIAN'S CHARIOT - CHARIOT RISING
BARCODE - 4040824083076

Zoot Money's Big Roll Band was one of the biggest live acts in Swingin' London. They where among the top stage bands playing their mixture of mod jazz/soul/R&B in the most popular clubs and released a bunch of excellent 45's and two fantastic LPs. But by 1967 a new breeze was blowing and bringing winds of change into the music scene. Bands like The Pink Floyd, Tomorrow or The Soft Machine had ignited a revolution in sound, and Money saw it was the time for a new move. Along with guitarist Andy Somers (a.k.a. Summers, later of The Police) and drummer Collin Alen from the Big Roll Band, plus bassist Pat Donaldson, he formed Dantalian's Chariot and hit London's psychedelic underground clubs with a new sound and looks (the band dressed in white and painted their instruments and amps also white, so they'd give an impressive image when a psychedelic light show was projected upon them while in stage). They recorded one of the best singles of the era: "Madman Running Through The Fields", wich coupled with "Sun Came Bursting Through My Cloud" became their only release back in 1967. However, as the legend of the band grew, rumours of existing recordings made in 1967 for an unreleased LP spread among collectors and afficionados, until they finally became true when UK label Tenth Planet released the sessions as "Chariot Rising" in LP format in 1995, and its brother label Wooden Hill put out the CD version one year later.
 
When Dantalian's Chariot split that same 1967 its members would go to other important bands such as Eric Burdon and The Animals, The Soft Machine, Kevin Ayers, Stone The Crows, Focus, John Mayall's band, a.o.
 
Andy Summers, of course, later went on to international fame when he joined forces with Sting and former Curved Air drummer Stewart Copeland in The Police.
 
Now at last again available in vinyl format through Wah Wah Records, issued under license from Zoot Money and featuring a cool period-style colour sleeve, front laminated and with backflaps, plus an insert with info and photos.

FAUNI 011 - IGOR WAKHEVITCH - LOGOS
 
BARCODE 4040824082796


Subtitled "Rituel Sonore pour Group Pop (Triangle), Choeur mixte et Bande Magnetique" and originally recorded as music from a N.Schmucki ballet premiered at Festival d'Avignon 1970, this is the perfect introduction to Wakhevitch dark, powerful and often menacing sound world. An unlikely mixture of 20th century classical avant-garde, both orchestral and electronic and psychedelic rock courtesy of french psych-prog band Triangle. A strong piece which pairs epic choral parts with Wakhevitch's taped electronics and Triangle's hypnotic jamming to form, in typical Wakevitch occult fashion, an ode to man's relationship with sound forces with the composer acting as a medium between the magical forces of sound and listener. The text inside the wonderul red gatefold cover holds some keys to the composer's universe, mentions to early 20th russian mystic / thinker Georges Ivanovitch Gurdjieff and also Kabbalistic and Alchemistic traditions are coupled by Wakhevitch's vision of a cosmic art for the 20th century, aligning himself to similar efforts by William Sheller and Guy Skornik. No surprise since this record sits comfortably next to other period pieces like Sheller's "Lux Aeterna", Skornik's "Popera Cosmic", Jason Havelock's "Pop Symphony" or even vangelis Papathanassiou's "Fais Que Ton Reve Soit Plus Longue Que La Nuit". Typical french post-mai 69 orchestral avant-pop vibes galore !!!!

BARCODE 4040824082802

AVAILABLE NOVEMBER 2012

Housed in a fantastic and menacing sci-fi cover courtesy of Druillet and bearing the famous dedication: "A mes grands amis Robert Wyatt et Mick Rattledge", Wakhevitch's second album was a step beyond it's predecessor into a music alchemy that defies categorisation and the one that started to define his trademark sonic collage of styles and moods. Like the previous record, this was the music for a Norbert Schmucki ballet "Ergonia", premiered at Festival D'Avignon 1971, and featured top french players of the era like Janick Top on bass. Oozing darkness and mistery, Wakhevitch displays a wide array of mind-bending tricks that take the listener to a wild and trippy ride into occult zones starting from the spoken word passages and open drum break of "Aimantation" to the psyched-up delirium of "Sang Poupree". Elsewhere delirious acid passages, hypnotic bass riffing, stoned funk beats, wild free-rock freak outs, avant-garde orchestral drama, dubbed-out passages and Wakhevitch trade-mark collage and sound manipulation make up to a really unique listening experience that submerges and puzzles the unexpecting listener. A psychedelic kaleidoscope full of intense moods, from stoned to thrilling drama, from medidative and mystical ritual trance to way out tape and synth manipulation that in spite of all contrast, holds together well - not unlike the similar collaged, contrasting and now much revered opus "L'Enfant Assasin Des Mouches" by Jean Claude Vannier or some of Faust's work.

Originally released by Pathe Marconi in 1972, it has become over the years Wakhevitch's hardest to find album and one that's been chased also because of his striking cover-art, made by no-other than Philippe Druillet, one of the top exponents of french 70's sci-fi comics school together with the great Jean Henri Gaston (better known as Moebius) which revolved around the seminal Metal Hurlant magazine.

BARCODE 404082408281
 
Subtitled "LITURGIE Du SOUFFLE POUR LA RESURRECTION DES MORTS", this is probably Wakhevitch's most esoteric and occult-influenced work. Some sort of dark ritual for synthesizer and orchestra inspired by Kabbalistic writings  where Igor's trademark bottom heavy electronics pulse, wizz and sweep to a backdrop of heavy tribal drumming. Elsewhere, menacing and majestic spoken word passages open us the doors to the netherworld, leading you into an esoteric sound ritual that sounds spooky, virulent, powerful, droning, entrancing and mystical at the same time. Again Wakhevitch brings together disparate elements, bridging apparently unrelated musical forms and integrate them in order to deliver another unique work that sounds strangely prescient and recalling at the same time works from Mort Garson (Black Mass), Ruth White (Flowers Of Evil), Terry Riley (Surgery Persian Dervishes), Stockhausen (Stimmung), Tangerine Dream (Zeit) or early Klaus Schulze (Irrlicht).

FAUNI014 - IGOR WAKHÉVITCH - LES FOUS D'OR
BARCODE - 4040824083113

Released by Pathe Marconi in 1975 and housed in a fantastic surrealist cover designed by his father, russian painter/art director Georges Wakhevitch, this album marks the debut of Wakhevitch's long-standing collaboration with american dancer/choreographer Carolyn Carlson. It also shows the composer's progression into a more esoteric and lyrical grounds: a departure from the violence of his first three albums into quieter yet equally dark and mysterious regions. Divided in two sides (called "CORNERSTONE"/"LES FOUS D'OR") the whole record oozes a dreamy, mysterious, surrealist atmosphere enhaced by the spoken word introductions that open a series of mesmerising electronic pieces which range from the gentle to the hypnotic. Animal sounds, ritual horns, wordless vocals and assorted metal banging and scrapping add to the whole mix for a landmark sound that will evolve in future albums. Six different pieces that take off where Hathors' 'Aurore' left before moving into a crazy and d! isjointed landscape that echoes the crazyness of Docteur Faust yet in a subtle, stranger, more warped way.

Originally released in 1977, this was (once again) a product of the fruitful association between Wakhevitch and american dancer/choreographer Carolyn Carlson. Compiling some of the pieces specially written for Carlson's "This, that and the other" (created for the Groupe de recherche Théâtrale de l'Opéra de Paris), the album follows the otherwordly steps of it's predecessor ("Les Fous D'or") in a more calm, relaxed, almost nocturnal way.  Inspired by Carlos Castaneda's writings, Nagual is another mysterious and intriguing statement of musical esoterica:  a collection of twelve musical vignettes covering a whole range of styles, from majestic electronic pieces to echo-drenched concrete-like sketches via impressionistic piano compositions. A bewitching  musical journey, built around  Wakhevitch's keys where electronics give way to more acoustic sonorities (piano, harp) for a highly-charged magical sound. A very special record !!!

Originally released in 1979, Wakhevitch's last album before definitely settling down in Auroville (India) was his most meditative and relaxed effort to date. Fruit of his 1978  stay in Israel invited by the "Mishkenot Sha’ananim" Foundation,  the album was again completely dominated by the composer's keyboards  - hypnotic, majestic, enchanting and delicate: from the sweeping synths and fractured vocal loops of the title track to the fragility of Taddy's Fruit  Garden, the lyrical spaciness of Eriador or the otherwordly impressionism of Taddy's Dream : Ramallah's Road.  A masterful closing statement by this french master and a must for anyone into meditative keyboard music in the vein of Terry Riley, Deuter, JD Emmanuel or Peter Michael Hamel, to name a few.

PRINCESS FLOWER & THE MOON RAYS - DREAMING THE MAGIC OF YOUR MAYA

BARCODE 4040824082321

 

For fans of Gong, Angus Maclise, La Monte Young, Tony Conrad, Amm (Cardew, Prevost)...
Recorded in 1968 and issued as a very limited run private pressing this psychedelic raga freak-out is the brainchild of multi disciplinar artist Loren Standlee plus his partner Ziska with the cooperation of Daevid Allen and Gilli Smith in what was an early incarnation of Gong. Loren and Ziska had been involved with the crowd of avantgardist free thinkers that settled in Formentera in the sixties, and back home in N.Y. they had also been connected to experimentalists such as Angus Maclise, Marian Zazeela, Tony Conrad, Henry Flynt, Pandit Pran Nath, a.o.
This bizarre selection of sounds was the brainchild of Loren Standlee and Ziska and features a very early Gong incarnation. Loren Standlee and Ziska were among the “Formentera” (small Island near Ibiza, Spain) visionary poets, musicians and psychedelic ‘researchers’ in the early sixties. In Paris, they began hand-painting silk and designing clothes for many of the rock luminaries of the time, among them The Beatles, Rolling Stones, and Jimi Hendrix, as well as haute couture designers in Paris and London. They met Daevid Allen and Gilli Smyth at a poetry reading where Loren was playing Alto Flute and Ziska was creating vocal sounds to intermix with the flute. They began playing together as a group utilizing Daevid’s Italian echo chambers and soon they had a two-night-a-week gig playing at the Vielle Grille, an avant guard club in Paris where you might hear Ornette Coleman playing upstairs or see Yoko Ono performing in a sack on stage.

Gong was formed and took two identities: one, only Daevid Allen and Gilli Smyth’s material, and the other, the Gong sound of Daevid on ‘space’ guitar, crystals, feathers and other unpredictable objects, Loren on alto flute and jews harp, and Ziska and Gilli doing ‘space whispering’ chanting sounds which built up to sound climaxes. For the time, it was extremely avant guard, and culminated in a gig to perform at Diane Von Furstenberg’s wedding where the group took LSD and both shocked and beguiled the party by performing for two hours, dressed in Loren and Ziska’s hand-painted silks and making sounds that no one had ever heard before. It put them into a kind of cult status.

They were invited to perform at the Museum of Modern Art in Stockholm in 1967, where they once again stunned the audience with their not-heard-or-seen before sound and look. The great Don Cherry joined them at the end of the performance.

Because Daevid and Gilli had visa problems, they couldn’t return to Paris, and the group split up after Stockholm. Gong was re-formed elsewhere with new people. Loren and Ziska returned to Paris and then left for New York. In New York, they met Ira Cohen, poet, mylar photographer, and the creator of the cult classic film The Invasion of Thunderbolt Pagoda. Quoting from Ira Cohen: “Sheldon and Diane Rochlin had just finished their great film on Vali, the witch of Positano, and were working on (their next film) Dope. Loren Standlee and Ziska, who had been in Dope, stepped into the magic mirror and became charter members of the “Universal Mutants”. It was then that I realized we were a special group of dedicated visionaries, electronic multi - media Shamans…”


                   


Two of the tracks on the bonus LP, feature the line-up of Loren, Ziska and Raj Samyana, which is basically The Universal Mutant Repertory Company minus Angus Maclise and his wife Hetty.
The Universal Mutant Repertory Company are most known as a group that included drummer Angus  MacLise, multimedia avant-gardist who was the original drummer of the Velvet Underground. The Company were formed in the late 1960s, and included MacLise, his wife Hetty MacLise (on organ, tanpura, and probably other instruments), Loren Standlee (alto flute), Ziska Baum (Indian dulcimer), and Raja Samyana (guitar). The Universal Mutant Repertory Company was a name devised by filmmaker Ira Cohen, to describe the people appearing in his film Invasion of Thunderbolt Pagoda. All of the musicians did an improvised soundtrack to that film at St. Mark's Church in New York. A 39-minute tape of the performance, used as the title track, formed the core of the Angus MacLise retrospective CD collection The Invasion of Thunderbolt Pagoda. On this piece, the group played drone-trance music propelled by MacLise's charged hand drumming, given extra psychedelic coating by the employment of four microphones, each run through an echo chamber. Loren Standlee recalled in The Wire magazine that the musicians would play together for as long as eleven hours straight.
An original copy would cost you a small fortune (raising over 4 digits!), but here’s at last an accurate vinyl reissue that comes complete with liner notes plus an amazing poster of one of Loren Standlee’s psychedelic collages plus an extra LP with previously unreleased studio material. Limited to 500 copies only.

NEIL ARDLEY 'A SYMPHONY OF AMARANTHS'
 
BARCODE  4040824082789
 


 
First ever vinyl reissue of this 1972 masterpiece by another of the big names in UK Jazz. Neil Ardley was offered the leadership of the seminal New Jazz Orchestra in 1964. Under his direction the Orchestra moved though different styles and changes of personnel, bringing in musicians such as Mike Gibbs (trombone), Harry Beckett and Henry Lowther (trumpets) or even Jack Bruce (bass), some of them also contributed with the writing of some original compositions, making the NJO the root from which the UK's 70's jazz scene was to blossom.
 
By 1972 the NJO was already defunct, but his legacy remained in the works of its members. Ardley's 'A Symphony Of Amaranths' is a perfect example of what was boiling in the UK jazz scene. It was Ardleys tribute to his idols Duke Ellington and Gil Evans, and featured the skills of some great musicians of the scene including Don Rendell, Stan Tracey, Henry Lowther, Harry Beckett, Jeff Clyne & Jon Hiseman. Side B is inspired by the words of Edward Lear, W. B. Yeats, James Joyce and Lewis Carroll that are musicated by Ardley and feature, among other highlights, Ivor Cutler's narration of 'The Dong With A Luminous Nose' and Norma Winstone's vocals on 'Will You Walk A Little Faster'.
 
Reeditado por primera vez en vinilo desde su edición original en 1972, os presentamos una obra maestra de uno de los grandes nombres del UK Jazz.

Bajo su batuta la NJO se movió con comodidad entre diferentes estilos y dió ocasión de despuntar a músicos de la talla de, entre otros, Mike Gibbs (trombón), Harry Beckett and Henry Lowther (trompetas) o incluso Jack Bruce (bajo), músicos que aportarían composiciones propias al repertorio de la Orchestra, convirtiéndola en la raiz de la que florecería la escena jazz inglesa de los '70.
 
En 1972 la NJO se había disuelto ya, pero su legado permanecía en los trabajos de sus antiguos miembros. La pieza 'A Symphony Of Amaranths" de Neil Ardley es un perfecto ejemplo de lo que se cocía en la escena del UK Jazz. Es un tributo a sus ídolos Duke Ellington y Gil Evans, y en ella colaboran algunos de los más importantes músicos del movimiento, incluyendo a Don Rendell, Stan Tracey, Henry Lowther, Harry Beckett, Jeff Clyne y Jon Hiseman. La inspiración de la cara B del LP parte de textos de Edward Lear, W. B. Yeats, James Joyce y Lewis Carroll, musicados por Ardley, que nos ofrece momentos tan brillantes como la narración por parte de  Ivor Cutler's de 'The Dong With A Luminous Nose' o la extraordinaria voz de Norma Winstone's interpretando 'Will You Walk A Little Faster'.

Recorded during the same sessions as the Mad Rockers LP, with the same musicians, Bloody Rockers features more free jazz meets rock explorations by the Kühns and Co., plus a couple of incredibly groovy floorkillers.

Jazz meets Rock, Funk and Psych, absolutely amazing groovy lp! With 1 song compiled on Andy Votel's The BYG Deal, the rest of the LP is equally good, though not always so groovy and more experimental.
 
Grabado durante las mismas sesiones que el LP de The Mad Rockers, con la misma formación, Bloody Rockers ofrece más experimentaciones de free jazz mezclado con rock cortesía de los hermanos Kühn y compañía, además de un par de temas bailables fascinantemente groovy.

Sonido remasterizado para la ocasión por Denis Blackham en Skye Mastering y fiel reproducción de la portada original con solapas traseras.
 
Jazz, funk, rock y psicodelia! Uno de sus temas fue incluído en el recopilatorio The BYG Deal de Andy Votel, el resto del LP es igual de bueno si bien no siempre tan groovy, hay mucha experimentación.

CLEAR LIGHT SYMPHONY

WAH WAH RECORDS SUPERSONIC SOUNDS LPS106

BARCODE 4040824082307

THE CLASSIC LEGENDARY ALBUM FEATURING CYRILLE VERDEAUX, MEMBERS OF GONG AND OTHER TOP MUSICIANS OF THE FRENCH PSYCHEDELIC UNDERGROUND OF THE 70'S!

Cyrille Verdeaux is a classical trained keyboard player who plays organ in Babylone, a band from the Rock pas Dégénéré collective, related to the Actuel magazine, at the beginning of the 1970’s. In 1972 the band splits and Verdeaux joins Barricade for six months. In 1973, Cyrille records a demo of one of his own compositions for piano. Actuel’s music journalist –who also plays bass in Dragon- Jean-Pierre Lentin suggests Verdeaux shall send his work to the new-born UK label Virgin.

That same year 1973 Virgin has just launched its first release, Mike Oldfield’s Tubular Bells. It becomes a top seller very fast, helping the consolidation of the project led by future millionaire Richard Branson, and with the good taste of his partner Simon Draper, Virgin will start to add other delicatessen to a catalogue that will have no equal in the history of underground music.

Through Tim Blake, Gong’s synth player at the time (one of Branson’s first artists), Cyrille Verdeaux signs for Virgin in 1974. That same year Clearlight Symphony is recorded (clearlight stands for a type of LSD). For its recording sessions Cyrille uses two different line-ups, each in charge of each of the two parts of the work. On one side there’s ex Babylone members Christian Boulé, Lard Free’s Gilbert Artman and bassman Martin Isaacs. They record along with Verdeaux on Virgin’s Manor studio. The other side will be canned at Kaleidophon studios, ran by White Noise’s David Vorhaus, where Cyrille is joined by Gong members Tim Blake, Steve Hillage and Didier Malherbe.

Verdeaux’s original idea was to feature the Manor studio recordings on side A, but thinking heads at Virgin thought better to flip sides to make more profit of Gong’s commercial success. A curious decision, since you normally don’t promote an LP with the same strategy you would use for a single! Clearlight Symphony was released in 1975 with small echo in press and public, although it has nowadays reached a cult status among followers of the symphonic – cosmic – progressive genres.

In what refers to its musical content, Clearlight Symphony is a completely opposed concept to that of the other project in which Verdeaux was involved at the time: the collective album Delired Chameleon Family (also reissued recently on Wah Wah Records), a brilliant psychedelic dive into the French underground of the seventies. Clearlight Symphony, instead, is a much more author-controled work, where all the musicians adapt themselves to Verdeaux’s circular, systematic composition. The alleged and collected improvisations, dissonances and atonalities (superb Boulé), the rhythmic tension of Artman’s enigmatic, Heldonian drumming, Blake’s environmental VCS3 modulations, Hillage’s content cosmicism, Verdeaux’s crescendos and counterpoints… Plus echoes of Débussy, Terry Riley, Soft Machine, Magma, and why not, the aforementioned Tubular Bells. In short, a work of honesty, an album of its time.

Cyrille Verdeaux es un teclista de educación clásica que a principios de los años setenta toca el órgano en Babylone, banda del colectivo Rock pas Dégénéré auspiciado por la revista Actuel. En 1972 la formación se disuelve y Verdeaux entra en Barricade, grupo en el que permanece tan solo unos seis meses. En 1973, Cyrille graba una demo de una composición suya para piano. La cinta la escucha Jean-Pierre Lentin, crítico musical de Actuel y bajista de la banda Dagon, que insta a Verdeaux a presentar la obra al recién creado sello británico Virgin.

En el mismo año 1973, Virgin publica su primera referencia, el álbum Tubular Bells, del joven Mike Oldfield. Convertido muy pronto en un superventas mundial, el disco consolida el proyecto del futuro multimillonario Richard Branson, y con el buen gusto de su socio Simon Draper, Virgin sigue sumando exquisiteces a una escudería de difícil parangón en la historia del underground.

Por mediación de Tim Blake, el sintetista del grupo Gong (uno de los primeros fichajes de Branson), Cyrille Verdeaux firma un contrato con Virgin en 1974. Ese mismo año se registra Clearlight Symphony (clearlight es algo así como una variedad de LSD). Para la grabación, Cyrille recurre a dos formaciones distintas de músicos, que definen sendas partes de la obra, cada una de unos 20 minutos de duración. Por un lado están el ex Babylone Christian Boule, Gilbert Artman, de Lard Free, y el bajista Martin Isaacs. Esta célula acompaña a Verdeaux en la parte de la grabación realizada en los estudios Manor de Virgin. La otra mitad de la suite se registra en los estudios Kaleidophon del White Noise David Vorhaus, donde a Cyrille le acompañan los miembros de Gong Tim Blake, Steve Hillage y Didier Malherbe.

La idea original de Verdeaux era que en la cara A del vinilo estuviera la parte grabada en Manor, pero en Virgin creyeron oportuno invertir el orden para aprovechar el tirón comercial de Gong. Una decisión muy peregrina, pues un LP no se promociona con la estrategia de un single. Clearligh Symphony se publicó en 1975 con una acogida muy discreta de público y crítica, aunque con el paso de los años ha devenido en una especie de sleeper, y a día de hoy se considera un pequeño objeto de culto entre los nuevos seguidores de géneros a menudo tan inciertos como el rock sinfónico-cósmico-progresivo.

En lo que concierne al contenido musical, Clearlight Symphony representa un concepto totalmente opuesto al de otro proyecto en el que Verdeaux estuvo implicado casi al mismo tiempo: el álbum colectivo Delired Cameleon Family (de reciente reedición en Wah Wah Records), una brillante inmersión sicodélica del underground francés de los años setenta. Clearlight Symphony es un trabajo muy controlado por su autor de cabo a rabo, donde los excelentes músicos se adaptan a una composición tan circular como sistemática. Las supuestas y conseguidas improvisaciones, las disonancias y atonalidades (soberbio Boule), la tensión rítmica de la enigmática y heldoniana batería de Artman, las modulaciones ambientales del VCS3 de Blake, el contenido cosmicismo de Hillage, los crescendos y contrapuntos de Verdeaux….Y por los surcos se pasean los ecos y las sombras de Debussy, Terry Riley, Soft Machine, Magma y, por qué no, el ya citado Tubular Bells. En definitiva, una obra sobre todo honesta, un disco de su tiempo.

THE UNFOLDING - HOW TO BLOW YOUR MIND...

WAH WAH RECORDS LPS107

BARCODE 4040824082314

"For those of us fortunate to have grown up in the 1960's, trying to "out weird" the next guy seemed perfectly normal for the day. Expressing one's self were all part of those magical and crazy days. The Unfolding were no different. Although not much is known of this band, it appears they were a studio group organized by Audio Fidelity records in New York City, circa 1967. Sometimes known as an "Exploitative" album, Freak Out Party certainly does take advantage of the free form and outlandish styles of 1967." (Roger Maglio, Gear Fab Records)

A rare underated freaky psychedelic LP that will appeal to those into The Summer Of Love meets The Mothers Of Invention sounds that will delight those ears into psychedelic exploitation albums like Love Machine, Mesmerising Eye, Fire & Ice LTD or Friendsound.
Featuring a mindblowing production with harpsichord, sitar, chimes and anyting that makes freaky psych sounds. A trip back to the days of LSD and free love.
Comes with a facsimile reproduction of the original insert. 500 copies limited edition.



"Para aquellos de nosotros afortunados de haber crecido en los 60, intentar ser más raro que el tipo de al lado era lo que se llevaba. Expresar la individualidad de uno mismo era importante en aquellos mágicos y alocados días. The Unfolding no eran diferentes en esto. A pesar de no conocerse mucha información de esta banda, parece que se trata de un grupo de estudio montado por el sello Audio Fidelity en Nueva York en 1967. A veces tildado de LP de "exploitation", Freak Out Party es una muestra del sonido "free form" y de los estilos más bizarros de 1967." (Roger Maglio, Gear Fab Records)

Un álbum psicodélico raro e infravalorado que gustará a quienes gusten de la colisión entre el sonido del verano del amor y los Mothers Of Invention y a todos aquellos que disfruten del sonido de los discos de exploito psych tipo Love Machine, Mesmerising Eye, Fire & Ice LTD o Friendsound.

Con una producción alicinógena cargada de clavicordios, sitar, campanitas y cualquier cosa que produzca sonidos frikis y psicodélicos. Un viaje a los tiempos del LSD y el amor libre.

Incluye reproducción facsímil del insert original. Edición limitada de 500 copias.
