Many new reissues and compilations available as Bandcamp downloads!
AURICLE / COSMIC EGG - new releases
Some of the most recent issues, all priced £8.00 each
TRIAX - 44 (AMCDR 297) January 2018 recordings - a diverse collection of 12 tracks extracted from 3 big sessions, covering a wide range of moods. Sometimes unmistakably Triax (despite the lack of any hurdy-gurdy, featuring Dave Powell on flute and dulcimer instead), some of it is new previously unexplored territory.
RUIN - HALLUCINATIONS (AMCDR 299) - If you thought you knew RUIN - think again! Starting in the realms of Metabolist somewhat, this album is one hell of a trip, moving from avant-garde stoner/post-rock hybrids onto the downright weird. An apt album title then, with suitably bizarre texts/lyrics too.
RUIN - PLAY (AMCDR 301) from 2014 live video session! As Ruin have never performed live, and maybe they never will, I suggested that maybe they should video one of their studio sessions. And they did, but still wanted to remain somewhat incognito, hence the disguises! So, on the web you can now experience Ruin on the edge, spontaneous and unedited. Following comments that this was so good that it should be released as an album, here it is (not quite warts 'n' all, as some considerable work was needed to get rid of some flaws not evident on the video version) now with greatly improved clarity.
Rancid Poultry - Archives...
All previously unreleased session recordings from the 1990s.
These are largely heavy instrumental stuff sounding like a hybrid of
Metabolist, Guru Guru, Nekropolis, et al - but with that unique Rancid Poultry
frazzled edge. All are numbered editions (first run is 20 copies) and they sell
for £8.00 each.
