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.
Lump Of Stuff
(Chocolate Monk - CHOC.318) CDR $8.00
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.
(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.
