ULTRA

Lifestyle

(Ajna Offensive) Used CD $15.00

This one is more about sound-scaping, with the first track stretching into guitar space-outs with brooding industrial undertones. Further on is more “traditional” Ultra — dark and gloomy, with cut-ups and a lot of samples — minus the mock-PE. Edition of 500 in outer card slipcase and five poster inserts

ULTRA

Roman Holiday

(GMBH) Used CD $9.00

Ultra combines the fine arts of subtlety, poetry and some bizarre sense of decorum that must be synonymous with piano. Because piano equals sophistication, right? The tracks are not necessarily overt or belligerent à la contemporary noise, although each track has its own disturbingly prickly quality. Throwback industrial / avant-garde / electronic music of the likes no longer known. Two tracks from Letter of Introduction seven (Syntactic, 1997), one from Circusirus triple-seven comp (Petri Supply, 1996), one from I Can’t Stand a Bitchy Chick seven (Aquilifer Sodality, 1989), and five previously unreleased tracks. Sealed.

Stain

(Dom) Used CD $3.00

A sinister performance from 2002, this decadent musical accomplishment should leave listeners effectively paralyzed and eager for more.
