Trust No Wave

    A reissue of the 2016 demo tape by the New Orleans band who combine elements of no wave, glam and industrial music. First time vinyl pressing with bonus track, new sleeve designed by Studio Tape Echo and 8 page risographed zine insert.

    Four of the tracks here are raw early versions of songs that would appear in slightly more refined form on their debut album, 2018’s Spiralling. The other four pieces are unique to this release, including a cover version of Italian new wave band Chrisma, raging opener “Disease”, the over-saturated shoegaze-punk of “ATC” and comedown lament “I’ll Never Do Ketamine Again”. The band’s second album The Passion Of (2020) was widely acclaimed and appeared in many album of the year lists. It was recently followed by a companion album of remixes on Boy Harsher’s Nude Club label, with all profits going to NOLA charity House Of Tulip.

    “A blistering vision of punk as possibility.” - Pitchfork

    “Members Alli Logout (vocals), Ruth Mascelli (synth and drum machine), Maria Elena (guitar), and Nathan Cassiani (bass), together manage to make their instruments and vocals sound like a fight for our existence.” - The Quietus

    His Name Is Alive

    Hope Is A Candle - Home Recordings 1985 - 1990 Volume 3

      For the past couple of years the Disciples label has been exploring the early tape archives of Warren Defever aka His Name Is Alive, a wealth of home recordings that he amassed whilst growing up in suburban Michigan, prior to signing to 4AD in the late 1980s.

      These records have charted the development of their sound over 3 roughly chronological volumes - All The Mirrors In The House in 2019, Return To Never in 2020, and we're now bringing the trilogy to a close early in the new year with third and final volume, Hope Is A Candle.

      Pressed once again as a limited edition clear vinyl LP with no banding and a printed inner sleeve with sleevenotes by Mike McGonigal (author of books on My Bloody Valentine, Galaxie 500 and noted for his publications Chemical Imbalance, Yeti and Maggot Brain), alongside beautiful photos from the Defever family album, the whole package designed by Studio Tape Echo. Please note the first two LPs are now sold out and we don't expect this latest volume to be in stock for very long.

      Alongside the LP there is also a 4CD boxset that anthologises the whole series. A disc for each album in the trilogy, plus a bonus disc which collects together the best tracks from a series of mail order cassette companion volumes that Defever compiled to go alongside each LP - 6Teen OK, Return Versions and Ghost Tape EXP, and a 36 page book. This is also limited to 1000 copies worldwide and won't be re-pressed.

        His Name Is Alive

        Return To Never: Home Recordings 1979 - 1986 Volume 2

          Second volume in a trilogy exploring the teenage tape experimentation of Warren Defever aka His Name Is Alive. Echo-drenched guitar instrumentals, field recordings and gorgeous ambient tones pulsate through the analogue murk, also taking in dalliances with greyscale industrial drone, musique concrète and even a burst of 4-track noise pop reminiscent of the early work of The Jesus And Mary Chain. Inner sleeve essay and interview once again by Mike McGonigal, the man behind Third Man’s recently launched Maggot Brain magazine and the author of books on My Bloody Valentine and Galaxie 500.

          Bogdan Raczynski

          Rave ‘Till You Cry

            Disciples follow up the raid on the archives of Black Lodge with ‘Rave "Till You Cry" by enigmatic producer Bogdan Raczynski, a collection of unreleased tracks and versions. Raczynski arrived on the scene in 1999 with not one but three albums released in quick succession that year alone on Rephlex Records. A unique operator even by Braindance standards, rumoured to have been discovered by Aphex Twin whilst sleeping rough in Tokyo. A steady stream of records followed, hyperactive broadsides of percussion set off by a winning knack for the buried earworm melody, much like his mentor Richard D James. He also memorably collaborated with Björk and remixed Autechre for Warp’s "10+3" compilation but things have been quiet since the release of his last studio album "Alright!" in 2007.

            "Rave ‘Till You Cry" signals a return across 18 tracks selected and sequenced by Disciples, joining the dots between the outsider junglism of the "96 Drum n Bass Classixxx" ‘compilation’ and his earliest rephlexions on hallucinatory, bassbin-rattling IDM with "Boku Mo Wakaran". Across one CD or four sides of vinyl, the joyous sugar-rush tunes of classic 1990s Nintendo games meet drill-like breaks, ambient drone and slabs of bit-crushed noise. It also showcases a more introspective side to the Bogdan sound, the soundtrack to a labyrinth of tunnels loaded up with gurners starting to feel unwell as the early hours begin to dissipate into the harsh rays of morning light.

            Much like the recent resurgence of Digital Hardcore’s Christoph De Babalon and the off-kilter time signature of recent records by Demdike Stare and Rian Treanor, Bogdan Raczynski’s return is a timely reminder of menace and beauty contained within irregular rhythm science. 


            STAFF COMMENTS

            says: More music to fill the self-coined 'Cornish Acid Optimism' genre; Bogdan traverses astral planes, gutteral breakcore and electronic lysergia through an expansive collection of musings. Well good.
