Conrad Pack

The Best / The Truth

First record by Conrad Pack and it's fast & sharp-edged, jackhammer techno with a nice minimal approach and a few dark UK bassline tropes thrown in the mix too.

Conrad P announces himself in expert form here, with a unique, invigorating sound palette that not only takes no prisoners, it eeks and squeezes energy and useful aggression from every orifice of your body. The guy has obviously digested a lot of the goodness - soundsystem-tickling mixing / mastering, tribal techno house drums, sparse & skeletal production that BANGS - it's a very UK sounding affair with both sides displaying a sophisticating and magnetic arrangement that alligns itself with extended club plays.

Misha Gray's Prehistoric Jazz Quintet

Where The Wild Things Are

    A flute made out of a vulture’s wing bone was recently discovered in a cave in Southern Germany. Carbon dating shows that the instrument is 35,000 years ago. The position of the holes on the flute corresponds to the pentatonic scale. This means that the pentatonic scale has been with humans for longer than writing, agriculture and civilization. The mysterious, beautiful and powerful sound of pentatonic scales is found in almost all musical styles, from Oriental, African, folk, blues and Indian classical music.

    This provided the inspiration for Misha Gray’s “Prehistoric Jazz Quintet”, which performs a variety of extended compositions, tonal poems and structured improvisations in an attempt to explore how the core of music has resonated deep within humans since the dawn of Man.

    “Where the Wild Things Are” is the band’s second album, which features the eerie suite of the same name, as well as the totemistic track ‘Cave of the Forest King’. The album features Misha Gray as composer and pianist, Nick Walters on trumpet, Kyran Matthews on tenor sax, Hugo Harrison on bass and Johnny Hunter on drums.

      “Seven Wonders of the Ancient World” is the band’s third album, featuring one composition representing each wonder. Each track brings a different colour to the palette from the fiery “Pyramid of Khufu” to the serene “Hanging Gardens of Babylon”, as well as the haunting “Mausoleum at Halicarnassus”. The album features Misha Gray as composer and pianist, Nick Walters on trumpet, Kyran Matthews on tenor sax, Hugo Harrison on bass and Johnny Hunter on drums.

        The Vinyl Revival And The Shops That Made It Happen

          ‘The Vinyl Revival And The Shops That Made It Happen is the story of the vinyl revival through the eyes of those who made it happen, the independent record shops. It explains why more than a hundred more record shops have opened since 2009, and how others have gained the reward from their hard work. Budget turntables, manufactures, supermarkets, chain stores, clothes shops, pressing plants and even the government are among the many who have benefited from their efforts.

          Graham Jones has spent 32 years travelling the UK selling to independent record shops and visited more record shops than any other human. This book guides you around the record shops of the UK who sell new vinyl. He has gathered some fascinating and funny anecdotes told him by our much-loved record shop staff so that when you visit you will feel like you already know the characters behind the counters. It is perfect for vinyl fans to keep with them on their travels around the country.

          Intriguing anecdotes include:
          ** The shop manager who sold his vinyl collection to save his life.
          ** Record shop owner wins £148,000,000 and sets up his dream shop.
          ** The shop where John Lennon cried.
          ** How an international rock star was mistaken for a motor vehicle.
          ** Rock star offers to be best man after a proposal of marriage takes place in a record shop.
          ** The shop where a customer saves the day by giving world famous band a lift to the stadium in his Ford Focus.
          ** The record shop who attracted a huge crowd for a signing by world famous soul singer only for him to send one of his backing singers to fill in for him.
          ** The Buckinghamshire record shop who pretended they were in Yorkshire.
          ** The record shop blown up by a bomb.
          ** The shop owner who sold his house to buy more vinyl.

          Live In France

            One time only fan club pressing of this Radio 4 "Live In France" LP. It was recorded live in Paris in the spring of 2003. The sound quality is great, in fact it sounds like it came straight off the board. There were 1000 pressed and when they are gone, that's it...no more will follow.
