GODSPEED YOU BLACK EMPEROR! - 'ALLELUJAH! DON'T BEND ASCEND (Constellation CST081-2) CD £13.00 - back in stock - Canadian import - extraordinary reformation album by this highly original innovative/influential band that bridge chamber rock to avant-psychedelic.
KOSMOSE - KOSMIC MUSIC FROM THE BLACK COUNTRY (Sub Rosa SR394) 2CD £15.00 - special import - amazing 2 CD set documenting Alain Neffe (later of the industrial band Human Flesh and several 80/90s left-field indie pop outfits) and other Belgian friends doing Krautrock style trips in the vein of their heroes from Amon Düül II and the Cosmic Jokers, some of which also reminds me of the French band Besombes-Rizet. Been trying to get this in stock ever since it was released. 2 discs in a nice multifold digipak with booklet.
SIMON STEENSLAND'S KAMIKAZE UNITED - LIVE GANG-GANG (Ultimate Audio Entertainment UAE DISC17) CD £11.00 - This is a wonderful album of Zeuhl spiced RIO with Art Zoyd & Univers Zero influences, mixes of Magma & Samla type styles & lots of that unique Simon Steensland style. Special imports from the artist's remaining royalty stocks (the UAE label went bust many many years ago). © 2004.
THE WAY WE LIVE - A CANDLE FOR JUDITH (Ozit-Morpheus OZIT CD216) CD £12.00 - classic Dandelion Records album, plus bonus tracks. Same band as Tractor, but with a slightly folky and mosre psychedelic style.
THIS HEAT - MADE AVAILABLE - JOHN PEEL SESSIONS (This Is 4) CD £9.00 - special purchase - awesome collection of Peel sessions, largely in the vein of the first This Heat album.
