NEIL CAMPBELL

Displacement Activity Terminal 2019

(Chocolate Monk - choc.466) CDR $8.00

Electronic plod and clang from an exclusive perv lair in West Yorksire, a secret location chosen as optimum for the recording of finely churned euphoric sonics. Numbered edition of 60

NEIL CAMPBELL / STICKY FOSTER

Enge Chaleur Telegraphique

(Chocolate Monk - choc.419) CDR $8.00 (Out-of-stock)

Two of Chocolate Monk’s favorite duffers got together for the label’s 25-year birthday bash at Cafe Oto for this long-distance psychic hook-up. These very old friends, one globetrotter involved in international espionage, the other a suburban West Yorkshire housewife, filled the venue with the sounds of far-flung places, piano, electronics, rambling, etc. Disorientation never felt or sounded so sweet. A Daktari for free sound adventurers. Numbered edition of 60

NEIL CAMPBELL / STUART CHALMERS

Frog Dreaming Skull

(Chocolate Monk - choc.433) CDR $8.00

Hurtling toward the horrors of their biological selves, these two aging Yorkshire-based freaks follow up In the Vicinity of the Reversing Pool with an altogether more organic, rolling affair. Chalmers ladles on his signature stuttering tape loops and even dusts off his old zither, while Campbell is in a definite Vibracathedral vibe zone on guitar, percussion, toy piano, violin, electronics and voice. A continuously evolving piece, from the opening strum and stroke that will get your chakra shimmering to a gurning sonic joy mess full stop. Listener, you must struggle with glorious reality! Edition of 60

NEIL CAMPBELL / RICHARD YOUNGS

How The Garden Is

(Harpendon - HP271) LP $20.00 (Out-of-stock)

Campbell and Youngs have recorded together in various forms (most notably A Band and the Durian, Durian LP), but How the Garden Is is their first true collaboration. Recorded over two days in the spring of 2000, this LP is mainly acoustic, hovering in, around, and between Youngs's meditative solo work and the density of Vibracathedral Orchestra ... stripped bare and built up around itself. Edition of 300. Jacket is near-mint with beginning of two-inch split on top edge of jacket; vinyl is mint. Includes 2-inch insert.

NEIL CAMPBELL / SPIDER STACY

Lump Of Stuff

(Chocolate Monk - CHOC.318) CDR $8.00 (Out-of-stock)

Back in 2008, one-time Nipple Erector and The Pogues’ most handsome got together in North London with Vibracathedral’s dad about town and former A Band swing king. Result: heavy, private jam blowout. The walls were hung with heavy rugs, the censer was filled to bursting, and the duo took off — Campbell on charged and elated guitar, Stacy handling commotion with whistle and clarinet. Their fried alien brew centers around a cloud of electronic rust that prevents nervous collapse and steals you away. Edition of 50.

Sol Powr

(Music Mundane) Used CD $5.00

A logical precursor to Astral Social Club, with its heavy focus on keyboard-driven electronic pulse flotation, originally released on LP (Lal Lal Lal 2002). This 2007 reissues also includes previously released, impossible-to-find bonus tracks “Rolling Exploding” and “Sky Full Of Love” from a lathe-cut seven-inch (Gold Soundz 2003) and “Fuzzjam / Dub,” which was available for download from TechNOH.
