Baby Blues Kids

(Tanzprocesz - TP4) split 7-inch $12.00 (Out-of-stock)

Byron Coley’s review somehow slipped past The Wire’s editorial gatekeepers and made it into print: “Fairly amazing free rock gloop collision by a French group with roots in Le Dernier Cri’s post-trauma sound (Placenta Popeye) and a Greek group (Reverse Mouth), who ... take things in a direction of stunning confusion. The best Greek things I’ve heard have always had a certain post-Rembetika blues orientation that explodes beyond average tongue worship. These guys are all that. And more.” Hand-numbered edition of 400


Morass Live

(Tanzprocesz - TP8) LP $24.00 (Out-of-stock)

In 1987, G.R.O.S.S. released Morass on cassette -- one studio side, one live side. The former was re-released as bonus material on Harbinger Sound's CD reissue of Nattering Naybobs. Here is the latter, plus 15 minutes of extra astounding unreleased live recordings from 1985-7 for your trouble. "Free jazz firepower is to the fore," observe our comrades at Volcanic Tongue, "With Ayler-ized horns and Borbetomagus-scale form-destruction battling against toy orchestras, power-punking loops, syrupy sludge-jams, garage band instrumentals and usurped avant garde modes. One of Smegma’s wildest sides and some of the most fucked-up art-aggro to escape the gravity of the LAFMS." As John Hodgman would say, "You're welcome." Full color artwork and labels.


Repas Froid

(Pan - PAN17) LP $27.00 (Out-of-stock)

(Tanzprocesz - TP7) Used CD $10.00

An extraordinary combination of culled, found, and taped fragments juxtaposed against drums, field recordings and mystery noises, sound loops, birdsong, keyboards and Tazartès's throaty drones and voice propelled by hypnotic, ritualistic rhythms balanced on a razor sharp edge. Pan's LP is the complete work of Repas Froid, including archival and previously unreleased recordings from the late 1970s and early 1980s, strung together to form two long compositions (the CD edition on Tanzprocesz is brief tracks of source material and a palette of various sounds). A French musician of Turkish parentage, Tazartès is an uncompromising character who defies categorization. Born 1947 in Paris, he's one of France's most idiosyncratic talents. He has spent over 30 years within musical practice and experimentation, letting his musical work wander from chant to rhythm, from one voice to another. Utilizing magnetic tape recorders in a rough collage and loose ethno-instrumental mulch, he paves the way for the electric and the vocal paths, between the muezzin psalmody and the screaming of a rocker. He traces vague landscapes where the mitre of the white clown, the plumes of the sorcerer, the helmet of a cop and Parisian anhydride collide into polyphonic ceremonies. 140-gram vinyl, color jacket, silkscreened PVC sleeve. Edition of 500.
