(VHF - VHF75) Used CD $6.00

Layers of twinkling keyboard, guitar, unidentified fuzz, short wave, etc., very much in the style of Harmonia and Cluster in spots. There are a couple of amped-up moments here and there, including surprise lead guitar action on "Tornado Rose Canoe," and the excellent fuzz-grilled rock of "Primavera." According to no less of an authority than Neil Campbell, Cloudz is "the best Sunroof ever."


Rock Power

(Nashazphone - NP13) LP $25.00

With Mick Flower (Vibracathedral Orchestra, Flower-Corsano Duo) on guitar, Nashazphone’s vinyl reissue of a European tour CDR (Rural Electrification Program 2003) documents a period between the dreamlike psychedelia of Cloudz or early Hototogisu and the brutality of Panzer Division Lou Reed, Spitting Gold Zebras or the more recent Skullflower. Edition of 500


Wings Over America

(VHF) Used Split CD $8.00

Eight tracks by Sunroof, a mix of archetypical drone and shimmer, and wild, jarring sampler-analog-bloop-driven action. VCO weigh in with an eclectic mix, including the delicate “Let A Thousand Flowers Bloom,” a clip from a gig at the Royal Festival Hall, and Bridget Hayden blowing up a storm on the flute. Released in 2003 in conjuction with first-ever US tour both groups. Chipboard jacket.
