    LIMITED TO ONE PER PERSON.


    Pink coloured heavyweight 180 gram audiophile double vinyl LP Not previously released on vinyl Acid Mothers Temple & the Melting Paraiso U.F.O.are a Japanese psychedelic rock band, the core of which formed in 1995.The band is led by guitarist Kawabata Makoto and early in their career featured many musicians, but by 2004 the line-up had coalesced with only a few core members and frequent guest vocalists. The band has released albums frequently on a number of international record labels as well as the Acid Mothers Temple family record label, which was established in 1998 to document the activities of the whole collective. 'Nam Myo Ho Ren Ge Kyo' is an album by Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O., first released on CD only in 2007 by Ace Fu Records and now re-mastered by John Rivers at Woodbine Street Studio especially for vinyl release for RSD 2020. 'Nam Myo Ho Ren Ge Kyo' is a phrase which was expounded by a 13th century Japanese Buddhist monk called Nichiren.The chant translates to somewhere between "I devote myself to the Mystic Law of the Lotus Sutra", or the more traditional "Öthe Wonderful Dharma of the Lotus Flower Teaching".

    Spacemen 3

    Live In Europe 1989

      Recorded over four nights in Germany during what turned out to be Spacemen 3's final tour, ‘Live in Europe 1989’ is far better than the more ragged earlier Spacemen 3 live album, 1988's ‘Performance’. The album's also notable for documenting the group's short-lived quartet line-up, with bassist Willie Carruthers and drummer Jon Mattock. Despite the change in rhythm sections, the focus is, as always, on guitarists Pete Kember and Jason Pierce, who by this point in the group's career aren't even pretending to be interested in standard verse-chorus-verse structure. Rather surprisingly, only one of the 13 tracks; a 16-minute take on Playing With Fire's centre-piece track ‘Suicide’ breaks the ten-minute barrier that was so often smashed through on the group's studio recordings, but there's still an epic, expansive feel to these loose, perfectly ragged performances. Although newcomers are advised to start with Playing with Fire or Recurring, Live in Europe 1989 is essential for fans.

        Spacemen 3

        Taking Drugs To Make Music To Take Drugs To

          Re-mastered by John Rivers at Woodbine Studios especially for vinyl release. Includes a bonus track not on the CD version and new artwork design. Never has a record been so aptly titled, or so perfectly descriptive of a band's particular vision of the universe. For all that, the original appearance of Taking Drugs was in fact a bootleg on the semi-legendary/semi-notorious Father Yod imprint in 1990, later supplemented with contemporary outtakes and cuts for the Bomp reissue in 1994 and one further song for the Space Age version in 2000. The original seven tracks, dated January 1986 and the first recordings to feature Pete Bain on bass, are collectively known as the Northampton Demos, understandably named for the recording location in a studio outside said English city.

          Both Sonic and Pierce have been on record as long preferring these takes to the eventual versions that surfaced for the most part on Sound of Confusion. Certainly it's a fine set of performances, showing a definite step toward the more familiar sound of the group and away from the rougher takes on For All the Fucked Up Children of the World. "The Sound of Confusion," aka "Walkin' With Jesus," rips along with fierce energy, Pierce's singing and the rampaging, primitive wail and rumble of the band just wonderful. "Losing Touch With My Mind" takes things to an even higher level, a huge wallop of feedback and beat (Natty Brooker's drumming in particular delivers just what the doctor ordered), Pierce delivering the lines with a flat, cutting drawl. On the slightly lighter tip, "Come Down Easy" is more or less fully in place (aside from singing about it being 1986!), possessing a more upfront but less vocally distinct feel than the Perfect Prescription take. The tracks that surfaced on the later reissues come from a variety of different sessions, including the original take on "Feel So Good" and a good live version of "Things'll Never Be the Same," one of several cuts featuring Brooker's drumming replacement Rosco.

          Long awaited new full length album from Sonic Boom, and it's packed full of atonal wonder.
