WEEK STARTING 27 Oct

Genre pick of the week Cover of Ultimate Painting by Ultimate Painting.
Jack Cooper (Mazes) & James Hoare (Veronica Falls) are Ultimate Painting. The two formed a fast friendship when Jack’s band Mazes were on tour supporting James’ band Veronica Falls, sharing similar tastes in music, art & films. It wasn’t until after returning home that a musical synergy was formed. After numerous demos were exchanged, a few casual jam sessions turned into something more; a partnership. Christening themselves after a piece of art by the Southern Colorado desert community (and fanciful geodesic dome-builders) “Drop City ”, the lads set to work recording their debut proper.

“Ultimate Painting”s ten songs are the fruits of that labor; a collaboration in the truest sense, with each member compsing five songs each creating a seamless journey that is both pastoral & cosmopolitan. Starting off with the breezy “Ultimate Painting”, the tone is set; a woozy & deliberate tune whose simple melody is complimented by two intertwining guitar lines that ride off into the sunset. The album catches fire after that, from the melodically mellow “Can’t You See?” & the yearing, gothic romance of “Riverside” to the bouyant “Rolling In The Deep End” & “Jane” whose sunny melodies belie the workings of the classic “Femme Fatale” who will “bring destruction to you...” “Ten Street ” is the centerpiece of the record, a shuffling head-bopper with hook after hook that ends in two blazing, interlocking guitar solos. The album closes on with “ Winter In Your Heart ”, a song about embracing new paths that life presents - awash in a fog of fond melancholy for chapters past. Ultimate Painting is a new chapter for both of these fellas & the future looks ver y exciting.

David Bowie & The Philadelphia Orchestra

Peter And The Wolf - Red Vinyl Edition

• 180 gram audiophile vinyl + insert
• classical music on vinyl release: packed in sturdy PVC bag
• first pressing of 1500 numbered copies on red/gold mixed vinyl

David Bowie Narrates Prokofiev’s Peter And The Wolf (1978) is a classical music album containing David Bowie’s narration of Sergei Prokofiev’s 1936 composition Peter And The Wolf. The music is performed by the Philadelphia Orchestra conducted by Eugene Ormandy. The album reached number 136 on the US Pop Albums chart.

Side One contains the narration by David Bowie of public domain material originally written by Prokofiev. The second side of this LP features Eugene Ormandy conducting Benjamin Britten’s Young Person’s Guide To The Orchestra with the Philadelphia Orchestra. Ormandy and the aforementioned musicians from Philly also back up Bowie on side one.

Critics lauded the album, saying Bowie ‘found his most charming guise since Hunky Dory.’ He tells the well-known fable with his usual eloquence and style, and gives instructions at the beginning for kids to understand how the music corresponds to characters in the story. The accompaniment from the Philadelphia Orchestra is first rate.

The Music On Vinyl re-release includes detailed liner notes on the project by Mary Campbell, specifically geared to “introduce children to the sounds of the individual instruments in the symphony orchestra.” Both Prokofiev and Britten wrote their respective pieces with this aim in mind.


Bulbous Creation

You Won't Remember Dying

In 1971, Bulbous Creation poured what little personal surplus they had into a full day of recording at Cavern Studios, tracking enough material for a full length album. The band wouldn't stay together long enough to save up for a custom pressing on rock. Singer / guitarist Paul Parkinson was deeply individualistic, and left to perform his songs as he thought they should be, as a solo act. He preferred coffee shops to concert halls, and would stick to his craft another 20 years before hanging it up. Drummer Horstmann followed suit. Jim "Bugs" Wine and guitarist Alan Lewis soldiered on, shortening their name to the more sensible Creation and adding vocalist Wayne Austin, dynamic drummer Tommy Ward, and guitarist Roger Sewell. The Bulbous Creation LP was nearly doomed to oblivion, but for the efforts of Rich Haupt, who issued an unauthorized eight song LP in 1995 on his Rockadelic imprint. Lewis died in 1998 of esophageal cancer. When Paul Parkinson died of leukemia in 2001, a lone copy turned up amongst his possessions, with piece of mind that someone, somewhere, was listening.

John Carpenter And Alan Howarth

Halloween II - Clear Vinyl Edition

    Death Waltz Recording Co. present Halloween II Original Motion Picture Soundtrack by John Carpenter & Alan Howarth. Original art by Brandon Schaefer. Includes sleeve notes from Alan Howarth & Brandon Schaefer.

    Death Waltz Recording Company is proud to present the return of one of horror's scariest boogeymen, as well as one of the genre's most iconic theme tunes with John Carpenter and Alan Howarth's score to Halloween II. Set directly after the events of the first film, Rick Rosenthal's sequel sets itself up as the slasher equivalent of The Empire Strikes Back, making a family connection between Laurie Strode and Michael Myers while getting some good kills in at the same time. Carpenter and Howarth's score is beefier and more intense than before, using layers of electronics to drive the audience to madness.

    As before, Myers aka “The Shape” is propelled by that theme, souped up with a new and more powerful arrangement from Carpenter and Howarth. Halloween II is more overtly synth and is perhaps less focused than the original score, although that certainly means it's nastier and more schizophrenic. The score also brings back the evocative 'Laurie's Theme', incorporating into a score full of harrowing musical effect, its synthesised howls and wails piercing your ears so that by the time 'Mr. Sandman' comes around, you'll feel just like the final girl, delirious at having survived the aural ordeal. And that's just when The Shape wakes up.

    Halloween III: Season Of The Witch - Clear Vinyl Expanded Edition

      Death Waltz Recording Co. present Halloween III Brand new remaster for 2014 taken from the original analog tape and including 11 never before released cues exclusive to this record. Original Motion Picture Soundtrack by John Carpenter & Alan Howarth. Original art by Jay Shaw.

      Deluxe reissue includes 400 gsm Gatefold sleeve and contains exclusive by Director Tommy Lee Wallace , Artist Jay Shaw and film expert Kim Newman also includes an interview with John Carpenter by Joseph Burnett.

      Death Waltz Recording Company is proud to return another previous release to its ranks a true classic of horror cinema scoring, with John Carpenter and Alan Howarth's score to Halloween III: Season Of The Witch. Bravely dumping the character of Michael Myers, the film instead looked at the concept of Halloween itself as a subject, with a mystery involving an Irish toymaker, three gruesome masks, and a chunk of Stonehenge. Eviscerated on release, it's now been re-evaluated as an underrated picture, not least because of Carpenter and Howarth's score.

      Whilst it left the original themes at home, Halloween III still has a plentiful array of musical delights to scare the living daylights out of you. The main title has a palpable sense of dread, with low droning synths providing a backdrop for high-pitched lines representing a television signal. Edged notes along with a foreboding rhythm provide high tension along with stabbing wild synths, while a certain piece of driving music gives a sense of fate dragging you to a very bloody and nasty death. And then there's the Silver Shamrock theme.

      The Charlatans

      Talking In Tones / Tonal Nagual Fur Star Liner Aquatic Ape Mix

      In some ways this first taster from the forthcoming album is typical Charlatans, swirling keyboards, a loose groove and a huge chorus, but it has a sort of spacey, haunting vibe about it too. It's a great single and includes a Grumbling Fur remix on the flip too.

      Chris Forsyth & The Solar Motel Band

      Intensity Ghost

      ‘Intensity Ghost’ is the follow up to last year’s critically acclaimed ‘Solar Motel’ album, which made year end lists at The New Yorker, Uncut Magazine and Popmatters and provoked ecstatic comparisons with Television and Neil Young & Crazy Horse to Richard Thompson and The Grateful Dead.

      ‘Solar Motel’ came together as a solo album but the band Forsyth assembled to tour the record - bassist Peter Kerlin, guitarist Paul Sukeena (Spacin') and drummer Steve Urgo (ex-War On Drugs) - took things to another level and quickly became a powerhouse. Forsyth brought the group into the studio in late 2013 to capture what became ‘Intensity Ghost’, a 5-track masterwork of grace and power.

      Haikai No Ku

      Ultra High Dimensionality

        "Fucking Awesome Heavy Psych!” - CVLT Nation
        “A burgeoning psychedelic doom trip of the highest grade.” – SludgeLord
        "One hell of a trip” - Echoes & Dust

        Following last years outstanding debut 'Sick On My Journey' on Burning World Records the three piece stepped into Blank Studios to record their follow up, a 40 minute pilgrimage through 5 mind-altering tracks.

        By now avid fans of doom and psychedelia will be familiar with Mike Vest's (Bong, 11Paranoias, Blown Out) patented hyper fuzz guitar shrieks and damaged feedback. In Haikai No Ku he is joined by Jerome Smith (Female Borstal, Charles Dexter Ward) on bass and Sam Booth (Foot Hair, Bin, Obey) on drums to deliver a burgeoning psychedelic doom trip of the highest grade.

        Opener 'Dead In The Temple' begins the album in the most transcendental fashion. Vest's squawking guitar barks and howls over a lumbering rhythm and an apocalyptic bass line, perfectly introducing the sound and concept of the album. From here on listeners are completely subsumed by the bands' dark cloud of ear splitting, cacophonous symphonies.

        Behold the gargantuan sound of Haikai No Ku – Ultra High Dimensionality. For fans of Bong, Les Rallizes Denude, Mainliner etc.

            Lola Colt

            Away From The Water - Bonus Disc Edition

            'Away From The Water' is the highly anticipated debut album from London six piece Lola Colt. Produced by Bad Seed Jim Sclavunos, the album has been intricately crafted by the songwriting partnership of vocalist Gun Overbye and lead guitarist Matt Loft through a cinematic writing style born of a mutual love of vintage film and visual soundscapes.

            Hailed as one of London's most exciting and captivating live bands by fans and critics alike, this six-piece have been taking audiences by storm. Their shows have been described as "a spellbinding and dramatic experience with both sonic and visual intensity" and they make certain every show feels like a special event.

            Crystallising their breathtaking live experience into physical form has been an intense and challenging experience as Matt explains "Our music is pure escapism and the thought of recording it felt strangely like trying to put up walls around a dream. What we strived to create is a timeless record that takes the listener on a journey to a different place with each listen".

            Love were one of the most extraordinary bands to emerge from Los Angeles during one of the most remarkable periods in music, the dawn of the rock era in the mid ‘60s. Led by the colourful and charismatic Arthur Lee, they made only three albums in their original incarnation and were revered by many of their fellow LA musicians, including their label mates The Doors.

            This 2 CD compilation includes the best of their albums Love, Da Capo and Four Sail (the last featuring Lee as the only original member), and their masterpiece Forever Changes in its entirety.

            Mario Molino

            Gli Angeli Del 2000 OST

            Spain's Wah Wah imprint shine a light on this fantastic soundtrack by one of the most underrated Italian musicians. It is well known the rich musical heritage that the Italian film industry has left us, and all those who enjoy the likes of Ennio Morricone, Alessandro Alessandroni, Piero Piccioni, Piero Umiliani, Riz Ortolani, Armando Trovajoli et al. will welcome 'Gli Angeli del 2000' into their collections. If you are into soundtracks or library music you probably already think that even if not as prolific as some of the aforementioned classics, Mario Molino's name deserves to be also on the list since he was behind a number of albums that contain little gems such as 'Operazione Beat', 'I Sogni Del Mare', 'Lamento Beat' or 'Bossa Jaguar' and also thanks to his guitar playing in works by other masters like Marcelo Giombini or even Mikis Theodorakis.

            Gli Angeli del 2000 is a 1969 flick directed by Honil Ranieri that has all the drug, sex and counter culture ingredients of the era but which had very small distribution when first released - it was probably better distributed its photonovel version rather than the film itself! Bits of its soundtrack, though, have surfaced on different compilations in the past years, especially the famous 'Psyché Rock' rip-off title track.

            Mysteries is just as it implies. A few months ago the felte label received an anonymous demo accompanied by a photo of 3 figures, faces covered like some sort of futuristic druids. To this day the label still doesn't know the group's origin, but the joy of discovering this music unimpeded renders this fact almost irrelevant.

            There’s a sense that the band would prefer to keep your focus on the music and not who they are, where they come from or what you might perceive them to be before hearing a single note. If you need glorious mug shots and preamble to capture your intrigue, then this is not for you. The album’s title, New Age Music is Here, could even be interpreted as a sarcastic shot at the new listening habits dictated by the constant noise all around us, but is more likely a simple invitation to engage with the music on its own terms, in its own universe. One thing is certain. New Age Music Is Here glows with exotic, crunchy, muscular, expressive pop music built around vocals and drums, rather than the big synth or guitar riffs prevalent today. Almost like a psych-rock, cyborg, 50's doo-wop Alice Coltrane if you will. Is it truly new age? We definitely haven't heard much like it.

            Listen with an open mind and heart and you too might believe in music once again strictly for music’s sake. Let’s get to it then, shall we?


            Rodion G.A.

            Behind The Curtain

            Rodion Rosca grew up and got his musical education in Cluj, on the Romanian / Hungarian border, during the relatively ‘open’ years of 1965-1972, before Ceacescu’s regime cracked down viciously on the cultural opportunities (and freedoms generally) available to the Romanian people. He was drawn to electronic music, at that time still an exciting new possibility, represented by East Germany’s Karat, Czechoslovakia’s Matador and Hungary’s Skorpio, as well as bands from the west including Jethro Tull, Emerson, Lake and Palmer and Yes, and the inevitable Kraftwerk and what would become known as ‘krautrock’.

            By 1975 Rosca had amassed an eclectic selection of equipment and established a reputation as a DIY tech-wizard. He created his own unique way of creating music on reel-to-reel tape recorders, using the various tape machines to multitrack. His nascent studio included several Tesia tape recorders, drum machines, phasers, flangers and fuzz pedals. Then there were a toy Casio VL Tone and a Soviet made Faemi organ. He was joined by Gicu Farcas and Adrian Caparu in a band he had started, which then took the name Rodion G.A.

            Vocals, drums and guitars formed the core ‘rock’ elements but in every other way the music of Rodion G.A. was leftfield, unique and inimitable. Recording opportunities in Romania were severely limited, with just the one state-owned record label (Electrecord), and a paranoid suspicion of ‘western decadence’ and censorship of those who might be seen to have adopted such traits.

            Rodion’s band concentrated on touring, from gigs in restaurants to the country’s festivals, where they built up a loyal following for their unique and inimitable sound. Otherwise, Rodion’s career consisted of commissions to score theatre, ballet, opera and gymnastics exhibitions, and, later, in the mid-‘80s, the animated film Delta Space Mission (though his music wasn’t used). At the beginning of the ‘80s his music was even featured on a Romanian TV show to usher in the New Year.

            Coinciding with the death of his mother, a dispirited Rodion walked away from music after a festival appearance in 1987, and that could have well been that. It was only some 25 years later that film-maker, blogger and enthusiast for Romanian music Luca Sorin, tracked down Rosca, by now living in a secluded country cottage. Through the auspices of Sorin and fellow enthusiasts Future Nuggets, Rosca’s music came to the attention of our friends at Strut, who last year released 'The Lost Tapes', effectively Rodion G.A’s debut album, to widespread critical acclaim.

            Perhaps mindful of his legacy, Rosca has unearthed a good deal of old material, divesting countless boxes at his country cottage of their contents, painstakingly listening to his old tapes on an old reel to reel machine. Amongst this material was that we proudly present here: ‘The Lost Album’. The existence of a complete album by Rodion G.A was somehow known to many enthusiasts of Romanian and electronic music, even though even its creator was unsure of its fate. Rumours about confiscation by the secret police and such like abounded. The more prosaic truth, that it had simply festered indoors as Rosca had turned his back on his old calling, surprised even him!


            Roedelius

            Kollektion 02: Roedelius Compiled By Lloyd Cole

            British songwriter Lloyd Cole has long since been a fan of Hans-Joachim Roedelius and Cluster. For convincing evidence, one need look no further than his 2001 album 'Plastic Wood', a purely electronic opus which was an unambiguous homage to his musical idols.

            In 2013 Cole and Roedelius actually joined forces to release their 'Selected Studies Vol. 1' album (BB 124). Cole has now listened through the Hans-Joachim Roedelius solo archives to present his favourite synthesizer or organ pieces in Burea B's Kollektion series.

            Hot on the heels of the recent 'must have' collection of sold out 45s and rarities on the mighty Sundazed label, The See See return with their third studio full length in October via The GPS on vinyl and on CD and download via Dell'Orso.

            Another fantastic collection of bittersweet sunshine psych pop nuggets, layered with the bands' killer ear for a vocal harmony and hooks aplenty. Passing nods to Big Star, Later era Byrds / Burritos and the 'Paisley Underground' sounds of the great Rain Parade and Long Ryders amongst others, the set doesn't disappoint and is sure to build on the acclaim and quick sell out status of all of their previous output.

            Admired by the likes of Sid Griffin, Ric Menck and Norman Blake to name a few, the band have recently collaborated with longterm fans such as Jim Noir and The Coral, from whom Nick Power penned the great “Jenny Said” from the set here.

            Trojan Horse

            Meat Eater / Dance With The Devil

            RAK Studios, the legendary London recording studios that has played a vital part in some of the biggest pop hits from the 70s to the present day, is paying forward to its future stars with the launch of the RAK Singles Club this October.

            RAK Singles Club will give new and emerging artists - and the odd RAK megastar (watch this space!) - the chance to use RAK’s world class recording facilities, make the most of the expertise of the studio’s engineers and producers, and release a limited edition 7” single in beautiful house signature packaging.

            For audiences of a certain age RAK Records brings back memories of high quality vinyl, tucked into a blue paper bag and bearing the image of a ship. Throughout the 70's, RAK records was home to a string of hits that dominated the charts. But RAK was not just a label, it was also the famous London studio where the songs were cut, synonymous with Mickie Most, Hot Chocolate, and Kim Wilde.

            While the iconic ship design was shelved in favour of more modern formats, the studios lived on, gaining legendary status as the place where Radiohead cut The Bends, and where David Bowie, Al Green, Michael Jackson and Pink Floyd came to record. To this day it’s the go-to studio for stars including Adele, Plan B, Arctic Monkeys, Sam Smith, Royal Blood, Tom Odell and many more.

            As a world class heritage studio and independent publishing house, RAK are uniquely positioned to invest in new music, giving breaking acts the support to make truly exciting records. With a new generation's re-discovery of vinyl, the magic of the ritual and the sound, it seemed like it was time to dust off the old blue paper bags and launch a new vinyl label: The RAK Singles Club.

            The first release comes from Trojan Horse. Standing tall as one of the most respected prog (a term they widely encourage) bands in Britain, this Salford trio has picked up plaudits from Drowned In Sound, Gold Flake Paints and Classic Prog, on whose tour the band played last year. Trojan Horse invite us to “Imagine the royal variety performance, except this time we behead the fuckers a la 1789, live on stage, to a soundtrack of YES, King Crimson, Black Sabbath/Flag, QOTSA, Blur, Supergrass, XTC, Futureheads, Converge and Mastodon....”, and who are we to resist?!

It's an amazing hour-long mixtape of interesting and forgotten psychedelic music that takes in (mostly) tropicalia, Brazillian folk, minimalism and dreamy psych. Dom describes as "an hour of looking at a sun drenched mountain range through kaleidoscopic glasses, where slacker-folk anthems do battle with desert-pop breaks and Led Zepplinesqe Eastern ballard standards.” 100 copies only.
