Barbed Wire Maggots
(Agaric - 1983) CD $12.00 (Out-of-stock)
Reissue of their essential 1983 album. Highly recommended by Hindu gnostics such as Byrey Colon, to wit: "Upper register bowel tingling never felt so good. Miller's guitar joins [Sauter and Dietrich's saxes] in the stratosphere, plugging raw current into metal bowls, sizzling like a wok full of stewardess jiz, just creating and distorting and worrying the fabric of the cosmos like some idiotic terrier-god from a lost part of the Upanishads."
(Agaric) Used CD $15.00 (Out-of-stock)
This 1995 reissue of Borbetomagus’s 1980 debut album contains the previously un-released “The Lost Concordat,” recovered from badly deteriorated master tapes of the session. “Heavy noise, deeply coiled feedback manipulation, hair-raising electronic squeal,” says Forced Exposure, “and the ultimate in air propulsion explosiveness.” With Brian Doherty on electronics.

The Eastcote Studios Session
(Dancing Wayang - DWR-011) LP $21.00 (Out-of-stock)
Fire-breathing saxophonists Jim Sauter and Don Dietrich and face-flaying guitarist Donald Miller summon one of their most forceful yet detailed sonic onslaughts to date. It’s dense and slab-like on first approach, impenetrable and resistant. This studio recording is a new kind of peak. Merciless, undeniable and monstrously beautiful. Hand-screenprinted wrap-around sleeve designed by Richard Wilson. Liner notes by Edwin Pouncey. 180-gram vinyl. Edition of 500. TEDIUM HOUSE BEST OF 2016
Trente Belles Années
(Agaric - 1998) CD $15.00
Like worms through an hour glass, so are the days of our live recordings – such as Jim Sauter, Don Dietrich, and Donald Miller’s final concert of their 2009 tour of Europe. Performing at Instants Chavires in the land of la vache qui fond, the trio celebrates thirty goddamn years of impossibly loud and uncompromising screech, pioneering unique strategies such as bells together, extended, flexible mouthpieces, open mouth wah wah, and never ever conserving a single volt of energy. “You know that bit at the end of the Monterey concert where Hendrix sets his guitar on fire?” guitarist Donald Miller famously asked. “That’s what we do. For a whole hour.” With Borbetomagus, bigger is bigger, better is better. It’s not up for debate. TEDIUM HOUSE BEST OF 2013
(Agaric - 1984) CD $15.00
First-time CD reissue of the trio's classic early live recording. Capturing the sheer density of their shows being an impossible dream, along with the non-aural undertow that comes from immersion in the uncommon frequencies the trio tends to inhabit, Zurich establishes the band's ability to build something other than a tsunami of sound. Hellish, unrelenting firestorms of sound, for example.
