Ultima Thule release news
# ENDGAME - LIQUID TIME (AMCDR 302) CDR - brand new 20th anniversary 2019 session! After a hiatus of several years, except for the occasional Quadelectronic performance, this 20th anniversary session from Endgame just goes to show that the daring spirit of Endgame has not at all died out. Fresh and vital, this mixes some well-worn ideas with lots of new ones, and obviously some ideas leeching through form parallel projects Triax and Approaching Infinity. So, expect both the familiar Endgame style (if there is such a thing) embellished by a lot that is different.
RANCID POULTRY - ARCHIVES (Auricle, various catalogue numbers) series of 6 discs all containing previously unreleased recordings from the 1990s, all culled from the best of jam sessions, live tapes and rehearsals, plus a download sampler containing one track from each
