Grand Master Flash:

 

PSYCHEDELIC/PROGRESSIVE/FOLK

ANT TRIP CEREMONY - 24 HOURS (LP/MERLIN'S NOSE)

An underground psych LP, recorded in Utah (in 1968) by a bunch of high school students soon to part ways after their exams. Originally issued in a tiny run of 300 copies, this album has become the stuff of legends. Essential for fans of The Doors, Jefferson Airplane, The Byrds, Charlatans...

GRATEFUL DEAD - IT CRAWLED OUT OF THE VAULTS OF KSAN 1966-1968 (LP/GO! BOP!)

'VOLUME 1: LIVE AT THE FILMORE AUDITORIUM 11/19/66' - A recording of The Grateful Dead's live appearence at the Filmore Auditorium on November 19th, 1966. Recorded before the first album was issued, this record features three primeval versions of tunes from the debut and eight further goodies, standards and originals not featured on any official recording up to 1970's 'Working Man's Dead'. SIDE 1: 1. Bill Graham Introduction 2. Hi Heeled Sneakers 3. Pain In My Heart 4. Cream Puff War 5. The Same Thing SIDE 2: 1. Beat It On Down The Line 2. He Was A Friend Of Mine 3. King Bee 4. In The Midnight Hour

GILTRAP, GORDON -& PAUL WARD- - THE LAST OF ENGLAND (LP/PSYCHOTRON)

Gordon Giltrap has teamed with Paul Ward to create this beautiful collection of songs. 'The Last Of England' is an innovative album that blends the many influences that have inspired Gordon throughout his career to create a sound that warms the heart and soul. Gordon's melodic guitar sound marries perfectly with the keyboards of Ward to create a harmonious collection of tunes inspired by the cover painting by pre-Raphaelite artist Ford Madox Brown. Limited to 500 copies on orange vinyl, the LP is presented in shiny gatefold sleeve which really shows off the painting.

PRIMARY 5 - NORTH POLE (LP/SUGARBUSH)

A vinyl reissue of a classic British pop gem by this fantastic band led by Paul Quinn (ex-Soup Dragons and Teenage Fanclub). When originally released on CD (and only on CD) in 2005, this album sold a staggering 30.000 copies worldwide, including masses of sales in the USA and Japan. This is a top notch album which was years ahead of its time. Shades of Buffalo Springfield, The Byrds, The Hollies, Gram Parsons, The Flamin' Groovies all melt together in a quite unique work that is simply stunning.

DEVIL'S TINY CHAINS - GOODBYE LUCKY (LP/MINSTREL)

The Devil's Tiny Chains, with Rune Larsen as the main songwriter and lead singer, hails from Aalborg in Denmark. The debut-album was released shortly after the band's formation, in 2012, and now it's time for the follow-up, 'Goodbye Lucky'. On offer are ten tracks influenced by Southern rock'n'folk, showcasing a dark Americana twist. The lyrics, performed with an edge, are poetic and often personal. This is a remarkable and recommended album!

GARAGE/BEAT/SURF/ROCK'N'ROLL

SHINDIG! - NO. 68 (Mag/SHINDIG!)

Shindig issue no. 68 contains features on The Turtles, PP Arnold, John Mayall, Patto, Cold Sun, Heliocentrics, Jimi Hendrix, Funkadelic, Sly & The Black Rock Room. And of course you also get the usual sections such as Shindiggin', What's hot on the Shindig! turntable, Thoughts & Words, letters and emails, It's A Happening Thing, and much more.

DICKERSON, DEKE -& THE SEX-PHONICS- - EL SOCARRAT/TRAIN WITH THE RHUMBA BEAT (7"/SLEAZY)

A five-piece speaking the language of rock'n'roll, Deke Dickerson & The Sex-Phonics release a cool, red hot 7-incher.

KAW-LIGAS - GUITAR RACE (7"/SLEAZY)

This is the trio's debut release, combining influences from artists s.a. Merle Travis and Chet Atkins with rock'n'roll, swing, gypsy jazz and exotica. The 'Guitar Race' EP contains four tracks.

CENTURIONS - BULLWINKLE PART II: SURFERS' PAJAMA PARTY (LP/GO! BOP!)

This set of killer tunes was originally released in 1963. Original copies of the album fetch prices of $200 in semi-nice condition, and due to The Centurions' music being used in the classic '90s Tarantino movie 'Pulp Fiction' the band gained a cult following of younger people who kept their legacy alive. The music is top quality surf rock'n'roll!

DRAGTONES - TWISTED/BALLAD OF A BROKEN MAN (7"/SLEAZY)

Two frantic cuts from the combo featuring members based in Stockholm and LA.

SAKAMOTO, KYU - SUKIYAKI AND OTHER JAPANESE HITS (LP/GO! BOP!)

Fans of abundantly orchestrated '60s pop, pay attention! This is a cool collection of early-mid '60s recordings by Japanese crooner extraordinaire Kyu Sakamoto. These heartwarming tunes, with 'Sukiyaki' being the best known cut, draw on soul, doo-wop, quasi-Japanese exotica, Latin and more.

HEATWAVES - HEATWAVES #1 (7"/NO TOMORROW)

This five-piece fronted by the beautiful Ana delivers a subtle yet powerful take on the '60s girl groups' sound. The songs are all originals, produced by Coky of Shock Treatment and Los Reactivos fame. TRACKS: 1. My Baby Has Gone 2. You Don't Love Me No More 3. Lonely Nights 4. My Baby Is True

PUNK/HARDCORE

VARIOUS - BINGO! FRENCH PUNK EXPLOITATION 1978-1981 (LP/BORN BAD)

In the face of Plastic Bertrand's huge success 'Ça Plane Pour Moi', big labels in France thought they understood how it worked. Very soon, music publishers and majors all wanted a punk hit. Barclay, RCA, Polydor... all of 'em wanted their own 'Ça Plane Pour Moi'. Sure, most of these punk hoaxes are as lousy as it gets, but one must admit that some of these cuts managed to stand out and surprise. TRACKS: 01. Piero - Quelle Epoque Epique Et Punk (1979) 02. Soda Fraise - Ca Baigne Dans L'Huile (1980) 03. Stefan - J'Suis Pas Méchant (1978) 04. Geiger - Je Suis Punky (1978) 05. Too Much - Silex Pistols (1978) 06. Gérard Bôle Du Chaumont - C'est La Défonce (1980) 07. Sublime Deluxe - Chose Molle (1979) 08. Bulldozer - J'Suis Punk (1978) 09. Sublime Deluxe - Donne-Moi Ton Corps Juste Pour Le Sport (1979) 10. Les Marylènes - Le Beau Têtard Sur Son Cigare (1978) 11. Gisor - Le Plan (1981) 12. Anatole Frantz - Le Monde Est Fou (1978) 13. Fatsy Wataire - Chimène Hovelicot (1978) 14. Gérard Depardieu - La P'tite Agathe (1980) 15. Plastichke - Ça Gaze Pour Moi (1978)

DJ OLIVE/JEAN-PAUL DESSY/DAVID NUNEZ/MUSIQUE NOUVELLES - DJ OLIVE/JEAN-PAUL DESSY/DAVID NUNEZ/MUSIQUE NOUVE (CD/SUB ROSA)

On CD, here's a luminous electro-contempo collaboration between New York-based master DJ Gregor Asch (a.k.a. DJ Olive) and Jean-Paul Dessy (and his Musiques Nouvelles Ensemble), plus David Núñez on violin.

INDUSTRIAL/EXPERIMENTAL

AM NOT - THE DEVELOPING WORLD (LP/TESCO)

Am Not's 2017 album is a pure assault of industrial/power electronics, well designed and structured - a tour de force from start to end. His most varied work to date! Limited to 300 copies.

SALFORD ELECTRONICS - COMMUNIQUE NO. 2 (CD/TESCO)

Salford Electronics is the follow up to The Grey Wolves. 'Communique No. 2' is a soundtrack to the hollow hours empty of sleep.

METAL/HARDROCK

WINTERHAWK - REVIVAL (BLACK) (LP/ROCKADROME)

Highly anticipated 35th anniversary and first ever vinyl reissue of this all-time classic hard rock guitar private press record from 1982. 'Revival' overflows with a powerful classic hard rock sound featuring the unmatched soaring vocals of bassist Doug Brown, tight, powerful hard hitting drumming from Scott Benes and the incomparable guitar wizardry of Jordan Macarus, who will leave you wondering why he isn't featured in every guitar magazine around. The reissue comes with full size booklet with lyrics, liner notes, interview and vintage photos plus an 11x17" poster featuring Doug Brown and Jordan Macarus. Limited to 600 copies on black vinyl.

MOSS UPON THE SKULL - THE SCOURGE OF AGES (LP/DAWNBREED)

Limited to 300 copies on BLACK VINYL. Moss Upon The Skull from Brussels has been active since 2010. The band's death metal sounds progressive and weird, reminding at times of bands such as Execration from Norway or Stargazer from Australia. The four songs on this mini-LP were recorded during two different recording sessions in 2014 and 2015.

SHOW OF BEDLAM - TRANSFIGURATION (LP/DAWNBREED)

Limited edition of 300 copies on BLACK VINYL. Show Of Bedlam is an avantgarde doom metal band from Montreal with a style that's impossible to define. 'Transfiguration', the band's sophomore release, is a bleak, unforgiving, and absolutely mindless assault on the senses. It could be the suffocating atmospheres, the obsessive-sounding songwriting, the discordant and humiliatingly crushing guitars, or vocalist Paulina Richard's absolutely nightmarish vocal delivery that have made this album so absurd and unsettling.

VRTRA - MY BONES HOLD A STILLNESS (LP/DAWNBREED)

VRTRA's debut release is a monumental hell-spawned beast that will crush the listener with the force of a cataclysm. This release comprises three colossal movements of oozing negativity, making for a total of over thirty minutes of completely abhorrent blackened death-doom chaos.

BELENOS - (JEWEL) CHANTS DE BATAILLE (CD/NORTHERN SILENC)

'Chants De Bataille', Belenos' third album, was first released in 2006, and has been out of print since many years. This remastered reissue comes with improved layout and five previously unreleased bonus tracks. The CD (total playing time over 70 minutes) comes with a 12-page booklet and includes English translations of the French lyrics.

BELENOS - SPICILÉGE (CD/NORTHERN SILENC)

Reissue in a jewel case. Considered by many fans to be Belenos' best album, 'Spicilège' (2002) is a well-balanced effort that incorporates the melancholy of the early demos as well as the majestic atmosphere and technical skills that came with continuous practice. Celtic black metal hardly ever sounded better than on this album.

EMYN MUIL - ELENION ANCALIMA (CD/NORTHERN SILENC)

Emyn Muil is an epic black metal one-man project from Italy, taking its main influences from Summoning, Windir and Arathorn. On this album, Emyn Muil mastermind Nartum, who also created the album's artwork, was joined by Hildr Valkyrie, who added magnificent female vocals to Nartum's enchanting music. The first pressing of the CD comes in a digipack and is limited to 1.000 copies.

MINGARELLI, PIETRO -Y SU GENERACION '73 FT. MAIKEL DINZA- - HECHO EN CUBA (CD/ABANICO)

With the help of Maikel Dinza, famous Italian salsa dancer Pietro Mingarelli pays homage to the music that inspired him.

SOUNDTRACKS

FERANCE, DEAK -& ROGER CONRAD- - OMAGGIO A JOE D'AMATO E MARCELLO GIOMBINI (7"/CINEPLOIT)

Repress of 350 copies on orange and black splatter vinyl. No CD! Here are three cover versions of film score tracks which maestro MARCELLO GIOMBINI composed for the Italian cult horror movies 'Maneater' and 'Erotic Nights Of The Living Dead', directed by cult director JOE D'AMATO a.k.a. ARISTIDE MASSACCESI. TRACKS: 1. Tema Di Antropophagus (Antropophagus) 2. Le Catacombe (Antropophagus) 3. Tema Inizio Di Le Notti Erotiche Dei Morti Viventi (Le Notti Erotiche Dei Morti Viventi)

DE ANGELIS, GUIDO & MAURIZIO - IL GRANDE RACKET O.S.T. (LP/FOUR FLIES)

For the first time on vinyl, here's an unmissable Eurocrime soundtrack by Guido and Maurizio De Angelis, composed in 1976 for a movie directed by Enzo G. Castellari. Perhaps the most powerful score from this Italian duo, 'Il Grande Racket' consists of fuzz distortion and electronic effects from the beginning to the end. This sonic gem is also enriched with psychedelic flutes, obsessive rhythms and percussion, resulting in an exciting prog-rock and psych-funk score that perfectly fits with the main elements of the film: action, tension and violence. The album comes with remastered sound, liner notes and fine artwork.

ORTOLANI, RIZ - SI PUO' ESSERE PIU' BASTARDI... (LP/FOUR FLIES)

...DELL'ISPETTORE CLIFF? O.S.T.' - The full, explosive jazz-funk score by Italian maestro Riz Ortolani for the 1973 crime-movie 'Si Può Essere Più Bastardi Dell'ispettore Cliff?' (also known as 'Mafia Junction'). At the time only two tracks from this score were released on a now extremely rare C.A.M. 7-inch, but that was enough to create the legend. One of the funkiest pieces of the Ortolani's career. Amazing drum breaks, fat bass lines, a captivating horn section and wonderful guitar effects! A real classic for all crime-funk lovers! This edition is limited to 500 copies.

VARIOUS - OMAGGIO AL MAESTRO MORRICONE (+CD) (LP/CINEPLOIT)

Cineploit celebrates its fifth anniversary with a label compilation dedicated to the one and only Ennio Morricone. TRACKS: 01. Zoltan - Pazuzu (from 'Exorcist 2') 02. Videogram - The Thing (from 'S/T') 03. Orgasmo Sonore vs. Sospetto - Adonai (from 'Il Giardino Delle Delizie') 04. Rashomon - Stress Infinito (from 'Spasmo') 05. Oscillotron - La Lucertola (from 'Una Lucertola Con La Pelle Di Donna') 06. LAWA (Leonard/Wank) - Sentanza Di Morte (from 'Roma Come Chicago') 07. Orgasmo Sonore - Matto, Caldo,...Girotondo (from 'Vergogna Schifosi') 08. Luigi Porto - Strana Bambina (from 'La Piovra') 09. Thelema - Die Ballade Von Präfekt Mori (from 'Il Prefetto Di Ferro') 10. Sospetto - Inseguimento No. 2 & 3 (from 'Una Breve Stagione') 11. LAWA (Leonard/Wank) - Revolver (from 'Revolver') (CD bonus)

AFRO-BEAT

VARIOUS - ETHIOPIAN URBAN AND TRIBAL MUSIC (2LP) (LP/SUB ROSA)

'MINDANOO MISTIRU'/'GOLD FROM WAX' - 'Mindanoo Mistiru' means 'What is the unknown?' 'Gold From Wax' refers to the layers of meaning in Amharic poetry. The two LP's brought together in this set were recorded in 1971, and originally released separately in 1972. The music features many traditional Ethiopian instruments and elements, but you'll also hear Christian influences.
