Individually hand-painted covers. “Most terrascopic.” --Simon Lewis, Terrascope. Edition of 300.
1970s Algerian Proto-Rai Underground
(Sublime Frequencies) Used LP $40.00
In the early 1970s, a new group of singers and musicians operating on the Northwest coast of Algeria were forced underground and banned from broadcasts, yet slowly built a small following around the seaside cabarets of Wahran (Oran). Groupe El Azhar and Messaoud Bellemou, who can comfortably be considered the godfather of the modern Raï sound, and L’Orchestre Bellemou, used modern instruments (especially the trumpet), which became during the 1970s the backbone of the Wahrani genre. Reinterpreting the gasba melodies on trumpet, Bellemou backed singers such as Boutaiba Sghir and Sheikh Benfissa who carried on the lyrical tradition of their forefathers singing about daily preoccupations and problems as well as love affairs, alcohol, or simply owning an automobile. Toward the late 1970s, Cheb Zergui brought in electric guitar with a wah-wah pedal. The development of vinyl pressing in Algeria enabled many small artists including the Wahrani scene to record and release singles documenting their repertoire. 180-gram vinyl. Sealed

Bollywood Steel Guitar
(Sublime Frequencies - SF043) Used CD $10.00

Bowed + Popped
(Nur/Nicht/Nur) Used CD $10.00
Michael Vorfeld’s improv / composition hybrid for percussion trio bears the influenced of electroacoustics as much as Stockhausen’s rhythmic and textural complexity pursued to the fullest extent. Stephan Froleyks’s half-hour “Hispeedo” is more volatile, owing to an apparent love of loops moving in and out of phase a la Steve Reich. Relentlessly inventive guitarist Hans Tammen bows, pops, grinds, and squeaks Styrofoam, for a strange collision of a friendly, intentionally unsophisticated material and rather horrible sounds with satisfying imaginative overdubbed textures. Metal box with inserts.

De Nagalm Op De Kopf
(Ultra Eczema - UE60) Magazine + CD $20.00 (Out-of-stock)
Throw a rock in Belgium and you’re likely to draw blood from someone to whom Ultra Eczema's Denis Tyfus owes a trade, or who wants to piss down his neck because his tail is longer then their’s, or wants to hurt him physically because they sent a master of unbelievably great recordings years back that everyone should hear, yet no one, after all this time, has. De Nagalm Op De Kopf is a fine representation of the label’s reliable variation of odd, funny, retarded, great, noisy, free, off, loud, harsh, sad and brutal.

(The Epicurean - CURE1) CD + DVD $26.75
The episodic track by Swedish industrial trio IRM is constructed with elements from Indications of Nigredo (Segerhuva 2008), Order4 (Cold Meat Industry 2010), and Closure (Malignant 2014) — unified into a new, holistic composition which contrasts aggressive noise segments with illusionary moments of lavish quasi-folk. The track by John Murphy’s Krank is a dark collage of fragmented noise, acoustic samples and female vocals. Erik Jarl (of IRM) contributes a subtle piece of circulating drone with a tranquil surface that makes partially hidden harshness more audible. Anemone Tube and Human Larvae’s lucid piece combines the knock-on effect of the former’s flow of sounds with the heaviness of latter’s doom-like industrial. The ninety-two-minute DVD by IRM’s Martin Bladh includes his earliest short film Pig and Tomboy (2005), the epic pentalogy Cycle (2006), and the conceptual installation video DES (2009), among others. All the films present unvarnished set pieces of the human body subjected to subtly implied violence within claustrophobic spaces, where the camera itself, the voyeuristic eye, is the only free player. The accompanying art catalogue includes collages and Polaroids, short essays by Bladh, and introduction text by Carl Abrahamsson. Edition of 350. Listen to an excerpt from “Triptych” by Irm here: http://epicureanescapism.bandcamp.com/album/epicurean-escapism-i
Epicurean Escapism III
(The Epicurean - CURE.3) CD + DVD $21.75
The third and final edition of this series again unites music, film and visual arts in a vision of uncompromising utopian transgression, diving into this subjective counter-world. On the forty-nine CD Sutcliffe Jügend present a straightforward power noise track with a pulsating electronic hook; Swedish units Alfarmania and Skin Area dig deep into the depraved consciousness, each with of a unique version of morbid industrial resonating with decay; Budrus seduces the listener with beautifully melancholic Lithuanian poetry; German act Gerechtigkeits Liga clank and rattle with their brand of organic industrial; appearing as a vaudevillian, prominent voice of Radio Werewolf Nikolas Schreck’s perverse neo-psychedelic composition alludes to Lord Sutekh, merging European neoclassical with ethnic Indian music and poetry; one of the last recordings of John Murphy on drums can be heard on Last Dominion Lost’s ritual piece “To The Master, A Long Goodnight.” On the three-hour DVD are: video works, live performances and collaborations by radical Swiss sound artist Dave Phillips of the notorious Schimpfluch Gruppe, whose work has many facets — composition, performance, psycho-acoustics, sonic rituals, voice, video, field recordings, objects and electronics, etc. — and is presented here in all its undiluted brutality, urgency and topicality; documentation of unique solo live actions and the notorious Paris 1996 performance of Schimpfluch-Gruppe; recent collaborations with G.X. Jupitter-Larsen; visual interpretations of Phillips’s audio works by video artists Pakise Akin, Jan Van Hasselt and Remote-Control Rectum. Includes 24-page catalogue with a text about the work of Phillips, collages, pictures, drawings and lyrics.
Erewhon Calling: Experimental Sound in New Zealand
(CMR) paperback book $40.00
Bruce Russell-edited survey of how a bunch of antipodean misfits and malcontents have forged new ways and new reasons to make noise -- the full range of “non-standard” audio practices in contemporary NZ culture, from the borders of composed art music, through improvised noise, to deconstructed “rock’n pop filth,” and everything in-between. While not comprehensive (nor aiming to be), Erewhon Calling surpasses what anyone else has even attempted before. Artists and informed commentators mainly tell their own stories, describe their own work, and outline their own goals in working on the fringes of audio culture. Text / page works by Branden W. Joseph, Phil Dadson, Bruce Russell, Michael Morley, Byron Coley, Alastair Galbraith, Empirical, White Saucer, Clayton Noone, Andrew Clifford, Jeff Henderson, Daniel Beban and Nell Thomas, Su Ballard, Jon Bywater, Dan Vallor, Clinton Watkins, Witcyst, Andrew Scott, Campbell Kneale and Antony Milton, Vitamin S, Jon Dale, Mark Williams, Lee Noyes, Nathan Thompson, Beth Dawson, Sean O’Reilly, Kraus, Sean Kerr, Peter Stapleton, Stephen Clover, Dugal McKinnon, Omit, Peter Wright, Jo Burzynska, Ian-John Hutchinson, Kim Pieters, Paul Winstanley, Gentle Persuasion, Zoe Drayton, Simon Cuming, Stevie Kaye, Rachel Shearer, Richard Francis, Rosy Parlane, Kiran Dass, None Gallery, Zita Joyce, Mr. Sterile Assembly, Ben Spiers. 192 pages.

Le Couperet: Music For The Crimes Of Dr. Petiot
(Harbinger Sound - 105) LP $18.00
First-time vinyl reissue since its original release on cassette (Broken Flag 1983). According to our friends at Norman Records, “Third Phase’s ‘Ashley Grove’ … sounds like a giant robotic bee dying a slow and painful death, gradually … becoming increasingly deranged [from] slow-motion weirdo guitar scraping and feedback…. Vortex Campaign’s ‘Live Tielt / Torhout’ … underpin[s] crude and primitive screeching and squealing racket [with] simple, almost mechanical-sounding pots-and-pans … percussion…. [The idiosyncratic style of] Ramleh’s ‘Live Emaciator’ [sounds] like … the engine of [a] conked-out Datsun Cherry … on a frosty English morning … [with] blue murder [shouted] into the exhaust pipe … result[ing in] an indecipherable phased vocal assault…. The New Blockaders create an almighty riot of industrial clattering…, bludgeoning everything in sight…. Citipati [sound] like some kind of malfunctioning bandsaw / moped hybrid contraption…. Depilate Corps close the show with … sinister undertones and [drunken Dad] vocals.” Edition of 300.
Light Bulb Magazine Number Four - The Emergency Cassette
([ no label ]) Used 2xCD $25.00
Unauthorized reissue of the original 1981 double-cassette. Ricocheting back and forth from themes of rampant human decay, paranormal and supernatural phenomena, the campiness of mainstream wholesomeness (1950s style in particular), absurd and adolescent humor, and the elusive kernel of triumph within self-defeating nihilism and inward-looking mockery, the Emergency cassettes are a source of the contemporary avant garde’s most valuable asset - the irrelevancy of barriers between naïf outsiders, intuition- driven slackists, and sarcastic conceptual complainers. It establishes the central role of a common, infinitely malleable vernacular available to anyone with a desire to get mucky with it. The variety here is so initially stunning that it seems like nothing in the comp’s two-hour duration is remotely similar to anything else on it, even if that isn’t the literal truth: real songs made of backward tape loops, strummed folk tunes, spastic punk bands that run the gamut from unison drum-pounding and shouting to out-of-control dementia to college nerds in overdrive, destroyed electronics, shit that sounds like a senior citizens attempting a space opera in a cafeteria, janitors chasing mice with brooms, lunatic lounge singer impersonators, repetitive machines, ridiculous parodies, geeky showtunes and cartoon music, surreal carnival nightmares, et fucking cetera. Tracks by Tom Recchion And The Friends Of Leslie, Monique, Jad Fair, Doug Snyder, Creatures Lives, Smegma, Peepland, The Lunchmen, John Duncan, International Language, Duba / Sansome, 30 Windswept Dimes, Decayes, 45 Grave, Half Bodied Baby, Human Hands, Neef, Glo-Bin Treeflip, Bachelors Even, Rick Potts, Bridge, Fragile Hats, Fredrik Nilsen, Jes Grew, Bpeople, Phranc, Asmus Teitchens, Them Rhythm Ant, Tiny Holes, Random Samples, Flap, Tela Conversion, Meat Puppets, Doodooettes-That Moment, Pep Lester, Cameron Hands Penis Envy, Dennis Duck, Brent Wilcox, Planet Z, Arrow Book Club, Bruce Licher, Slimy Adenoid & The Fab Pabs, The Tribal Fops, Bill Noland, and Foundation Boo.
Like a Frog In Winter
(Hospital - HOS138) LP + 7-inch $30.00
In 2004 while residing in Providence, Dominic Fernow of Prurient and Hospital began compiling Like A Frog in Winter, in response to his perceptions that noise had become rather hi-fi, technological, and cold -- entertainment rather than entertaining, something clean, something stimulating. Fernow's choices represent a more psychological, minimal, dismal, and rejected feeling, and calls for a return to the fetishistic and erotic attitude of noise -- and a negative one at that. Participating criminals, in order of incarceration: Ffh, A Fail Association, Immaculate:Grotesque, Cleanse, Pedestrian Deposit, Chrysalis, Ahlzagailzehguh, Habeeb, Craniopagus, Alberich, Bereft, Barrikad, Prurient, Sewer Election, Panicsville, Filthy Turd, Omei, The Seven Arts, Age Of Enlightenment, Mark Solotroff, Whorebutcher, Climax Denial, Stegm, Burden.

Nostra Signora Delle Tenebre
(Backwards - BW20) 2xLP $34.00
Alongside the world-famous auteurs, lesser known and critically unappreciated Italian directors (mockingly called cinematografari) excelled at wild, sick takes on horror and crime dramas, in the success of which music played a big role. Classically trained composers like Ennio Morricone and Stelvio Cipriani rubbed shoulders with pop-stars-turned-soundtrackers like Nico Fidenco and Pino Donaggio and together happily immersed themselves in the muddy waters of this cinematic swamp, creating their own distorted versions of the funk, psychedelia and beat rock canons. The aberrant results were then applied like thick make-up to equally mind-boggling, malevolent, highly stylized movies from directors like Dario Argento, Lucio Fulci or schlock-meister Joe D’Amato. Here Italy's current occult psychedelia scene pays tribute to the gloriously adventurous soundtracks of the less glorious horror and giallo flicks — movies that retained a decidedly Italian flavor in a bizarre mix of nasty violence, lurid sexuality and feverish Catholic mysticism, all filtered through a manic obsession with death, blood and the sins of the flesh. Track listing: Heroin In Tahiti “Nuda per Satana” (A. Baldan Bembo); Lay Llamas “Palude” (L. Michelini); Second H. Sam “Gli ultimi cannibali” (N. Fidenco); Lamusa “Tourist trap” (P. Donaggio); Edible Woman “Magic & Ecstasy” (E. Morricone); Mai Mai Mai “Sette note in nero” (Bixio – Frizzi – Tempera); Jennifer Gentle “Chanson de la Nuit” (E. Macchi); Slumberwood “Toby Dammit” (N. Rota); Mamuthones “The Thing” (E. Morricone); Gianni Giublena Rosacroce “Incubo sulla città contaminata” (S. Cipriani); Beautiful Bunker “L’aldilà” (F. Frizzi); Cannibal Movie “Sans espoir” (B. Nicolai); Father Murphy “L’alba dei morti viventi” (Goblin); OVO “Nuda per Satana” (A. Baldan Bembo); and Maria Celeste “Cento campane” (Fiorentini – Grano). Colored vinyl. Edition of 500

Optional Ingredients From A Vile Recipe Volume II
(Trackshun Industries - TR714) 7-inch $10.00
The second of Justice Schanfarber's three-part series was reviewed by CMJ when it was released back in 1995: “A peculiar six-track combination of hideous noise and gently radiant beauty. The noise tracks illustrate nicely the variety of things that the ear hears as noise instead of music, how easy it is to switch to thinking of them as music, and the way the overtones can be heard as notes. And their contrast is pretty effective – especially at the end when Total’s vacuum-cleaner-of-the-pit ‘Austrian Shade’ cuts off and makes way for Paula Frazer’s unironically gorgeous, retro country lament ‘Is She Lonesome Now’.” Also includes Beauty Pear, Brain Ruryk’s frenetic love/hate guitar, Bren’t Lewiis Ensemble’s “Mid-Range Phase/Link 3" Dome” (a different excerpt from the one on Induced Musical Spasticity), and Supreme Dicks. All covers are unique (pages torn from obsolete encyclopedias).
(Naturestrip - NS 3002) CD $14.25
Four sound artists working with field recordings. Toshiya Tsunoda’s “Reclaimed Land,” recorded in Japan, captures an immersive and rich environment, momentarily framed. Melbourne-based sound artist and improviser Joel Stern’s track was produced using binaural microphones, two bottles of soda water, damaged cables and speakers; it moves between richly textural surface noise, investigations of acoustic space, and minute gestural detail. The cyclic mixture of breathing, resonant drones, static rustlings and scrapings of Tarab’s “Of Hollow Traces” was constructed from a series of improvisations, using found objects, microphones, simple electronics and field recordings. Brisbane-based writer, composer and artist Lawrence English collects together a series of field recordings captured in Tokyo and New York into an audio diary of abstract reflections. Imported from Australia.

(Bôłt - BR ES09) 2xCD $16.50
Original and new realizations of five of Polish Radio Experimental Studio’s seven published scores. Pieces by Andrzej Dobrowolski (Music for Magnetic Tape and Piano Solo; Music for Magnetic Tape No.1), Bogusław Schaeffer (Symphony: Electronic Music), Włodzimierz Kotonski (Aela; Study for One Cymbal Stroke), and Krzysztof Penderecki (Psalmus) “performed” by Eugeniusz Rudnik and Bohdan Mazurek and by Lionel Marchetti, Thomas Lehn, Philip Zoubek and Wolfram, Arszyn and Piotr Kurek, Marion Wörle and Małe Instrumenty. The scores are among the first attempts to write down electronic sounds, and provide links between music and graphics, making explicit the replacement of utilitarian functions for experimental ones. Precision of communication between a composer and a sound engineer — noticeable in early Dobrowolski scores or in Kotonski’s Study — yields to a tendency to experiment with this communication. In 1964 Bogusław Schaeffer’s graphic score was full of new symbols, well-defined by the author but which above all serve as tools of identifying the potential actions of the sound engineer. Six years later Włodzimierz Kotonski’s composition, deprived of graphic symbols, is a nineteen-page text-score describing the most important principles of a family of electronic pieces called Aela. The PRES Scores album is dedicated to the ambivalence of conservatism and experiment. Scores on paper are what the composer leaves behind and in this way requires, or at least allows, subsequent realizations. Twenty-eight-page booklet. TEDIUM HOUSE BEST OF 2013

Location / environmental recordings made inside record stores -- the sound of regular everyday customers looking at records, talking about records, buying records, and of record store owners boxing up records for mail-order customers. Audio vérité, sound poetry and a touch of musique concrète (two tracks are processed / cut-up / collage; three are straight open-mic recordings). Participating record stores are Hospital (NYC), RRRecords (Lowell), Sarvilevyt (Lahti, Finland), Second Layer (London), and Weirdo (Cambridge). Includes record bag made of heavy-duty nylon with the RRR squiggle design silkscreened by Shogun Shop / Heartworm Press. Also includes a bonus platter selected at random from the back catalog of RRRecords; it's unrelated to the concept of the album, but we're listing it as a 2xLP for postage purposes. TEDIUM HOUSE BEST OF 2011.

(UNM - UNM1970) LP $20.00
Exact reproduction of a Swedish raga concrète LP from 1970. Field recordings of amateurs playing and making sounds: a playground, drummers and fiddlers, a garden cafe, children, one track simply titled "Gronas" ("Green"). Time to getcher esoteric on. The title roughly translates to Play Yourself or Play Naturally. It has been credited to Träd, Gräs och Stenar, but they aren't featured on it. Bo Anders Persson did, in fact, compile, edit and release this album in collaboration with Solvieg Bark. (Persson was a member of the legendary Swedish bands Harvester, International Harvester, Pärson Sound, Träd, Gräs Och Stenar; Bark was one of a few young composers who, through the UNM (Young Nordic Music Festivals), became a contemporary of Erkki Kurenniemi, Folke Rabe, etc.)

Rubbed + Blown
(Nur/Nicht/Nur) Used CD $10.00
Claus van Bebber and Ron Schmidt’s well-constructed schizophrenic duet in five parts touches high-energy free jazz, isolationist noises, musique concrete, a barrage of droning, barely-changing synthesizer sounds decorated with a sprinkling of ugly samples, and conceptual art. Paul Hubweber gradually metamorphoses small cells of notes, via an ensemble of brass instruments and signal processing, into a dense slab. Another piece begins with homemade brass and deliberately clumsy edits, giving way to junk sounds and the virtual ambiance of industrial noises. Hubweber’s more minimal “Ab + Auf,” performed by a live ensemble, combines slowly sweeping drones with filigree solo-istic gestures. Metal box with inserts.

Solitude of Sounds
(Bôłt - BR ES08) 2xCD $16.50
A collection of works created at Polish Radio Experimental Studio by pioneer of minimalism Tomasz Sikorski and by his friends and followers. Four by Sikorski: Echoes II (1963); Antiphones (1963); Diario 87 (1987); Solitude of Sounds (1975). Two by Száblocs Esztényi: Created Music No 3: in memoriam Tomasz Sikorski (1989); Concerto (1971). One by Kasia Głowicka: Presence (2007). As opposed to American minimalism (with its urban soundscape flavor that emerges from frenetic human interaction), or Dutch minimalism (informed by a culture of activism), the Polish variation has been called “mystic minimalism” because of the personal experiences and environment of its creators, and their interest in expressing emotions in a grandiose way. Philosopher-minimalist Sikorski was concerned with the meditative properties of his compositions (which seem to long for brutal beauty), and impressed by the existential crisis in Kierkegaard’s The Sickness Unto Death. His attraction to despair may have had roots in personal tragedy, where intoxication, abandonment and ridicule plagued his existence. Twenty-four-page booklet. TEDIUM HOUSE BEST OF 2013

Tarantismo Summit Volume 1
(Rampage) LP $16.00
Rooted derogatively in the spirit of Nonesuch Records' pioneering steps into the foray of primitive avant garde in the early 1960s, Tarantismo Summit ushers in a new age of reclamation of the broken and damaged arts, coercing the music enthusiasts of the present day to expand their horizons and explore new territories, still unfamiliar, yet unwavering. A satellite of unspeakable desecration in the free-jazz stratosphere of the '70s underground, Smegma is and were a pivotal point of aural disgust to many, and an unrequited love for the rest of the outsider population screaming for dissonance and catastrophe of modern sound. K.K. Rampage have lived in the squalor of Chicago's most egregious forbidden zones for years without sunlight or nourishment, and their inclusion is defaulted in their steadfast stance of perpetuating mental decay, along with an inherent unhinged velocity of self-destruction. The Floridian influence on this damaged crop of poisoned sprouts comes in the larval state of Insect Joy, a duo of crustaceous origin who obliterate the tranquility of a Gulf Coast sunset with a barbaric and drilling groove of mindless gravel-toned noise. The last nail in the coffin, in an electric storm of ghastly proportions, Ghost Moth vilify an age-old premise where confusion of sound and disruption of parallax combine to create a horrendous vision of a world turned inside out. 400 copies.
