About this item

January 2016 gets off to a cosmic bang with the unveiling of the debut release from new Manchester private press label Nevertime Records. The first instalment ‘These Wild Combinations’ sees world-renowned crate-digger Dom Thomas (Whyte Horses) bring together his favourite musical discoveries hoarded from DJ jaunts across the world. Assembling an anti-compilation of vintage and contemporary music from lesser known and obscure artists ranging from the late sixties to the present day. Disparate music that defies catergorisation and mixtape sensibilities are the order of the day, a definite statement echoing the sign of the times. Thomas presents a mutilated Back to Mine hybrid, allowing songs from different times and genres to rub shoulders together. Cosmic Disco is pitted against Aussie minimal post-rock, circular tripped out electronic dubs fade into instrumentals that could have soundtracked an opium-den era Ira Cohen photoshoot. Lesser known and unheralded heros find a new outlet, some songs seeing their first outing on vinyl. These lovingly crafted albums come housed in zebra-flecked hand made wibalin sleeve with hand-stamped artwork and insert. As a bonus track to round off proceedings is the first ever recorded piece of work by The Go! Team’s Ian Parton, Dom’s cowriter on some of the recently sought after Whyte Horses recordings.
