The unique portal to a world of
esoteric, creative & experimental music, Ultima Thule was founded in 1989
by Alan & Steve Freeman
to fill the gap left by the demise of other specialist music retailers, with an honest out-looking but non compromising catalogue of music
from around the world. Being experimental musicians ourselves, collecting prog & weird music since the mid-1970s, and establishing
Audion magazine in 1986, we've always done it all for the love of the music, although it is handy to be able to make a living off it.
Please support us and order something! Go on, try out something new, challenge yourself, be adventurous!

does "Ultima Thule" mean?...
1... In legend, Ultima Thule was reputed to be an island in the far North, in a perpetual state of ice and snow,† and where
the Sun never set. 2,000 years ago, the ancient Greeks thought the edge of the World lay there!
2... Ultima Thule also has a much more profound meaning: the extreme limits and capabilities of human-kind.
That is, to be able to grasp for the unattainable!
3... Ultima Thule is also a legendary Tangerine Dream single (Ohr Records, 1971) and the initial inspiration for the name!
Thus, if you've been searching for somewhere that specialises only in progressive rock & fusion,
experimental, psychedelic, synth, electronic, avant-garde or weird music... You've found your Ultima Thule!
