New simple Buy Now buttons are now on all our releases and Audion magazine pages. So, where items are available - just click and go! I've had a few customers use the new buttons so far, so it seems to all be working well. Of course, if you want to do a bigger order (for 2 or more items) it will be better to request a PayPal invoice due to lower p&p costs per item in heavier packages. Or you can buy via our Discogs shop which has custom invoicing, and for Audion you can go via our Bookogs shop where you'll extra image pages of most issues.

Ruin - A DIFFERENT PLACE (AMCDR 283) ltd.ed. CDR £8.00

Important note about older Auricle releases
As we no longer have a printer capable of printing A3 pages many releases will no longer be re-pressed. All the Auricle Archive releases will be deleted once current stocks are depleted. Some are last one or two copies. Also, the Dark Star series were only intended to be limited issues, and other budget titles that are also down to the last copies will also not be re-pressed. Only certain titles of Alto Stratus, Endgame and Triax be kept on release, with just a few as new editions.
There is also a number of other factors as to why we are doing this: 1. Keeping the whole catalogue of releases available is not really practical, 2. We only have so much storage space, so in order to do more new releases we need to free-up some shelf space, 3. The old printing systems we used are no longer available, 4. Redesigning artwork to do new editions is time consuming (and thus will only be done for best selling titles), and 5. printing to silver discs is no longer possible. Besides those last copies on this page, I will also add low stock level warnings on the Auricle CDR listing page.


Soon?: not in stock yet


new releases ordered...



new Auricle releases / due soon...

Alan Freeman & Jim Tetlow - NEAR INFINITY (AMCDR 284) remastered abstract duo works from Quadelectronic - actual project name and title yet to be decided - probably out in July


new releases / yet to order...

Simon Steensland - A FAREWELL TO BRAINS (Transubstans Records TRANS154) CD - release date 6 July

Agusa - AGUSA (Kommun2 K242) LP - release date 6 July


Svart Records...

Just made an order with this Finnish label. I have a few titles in stock now from the UK distributor. But there's much more available direct, including a few bargains. Releases on LP and CD include rare 70 radio concerts, reissues from the Love Records label and more (including some interesting sounding recent Finnish prog bands). Also, they've just reissued two electronic classics from the 70s: Åke Andersson & Antero Honkanen - Reidarin Sähköiset Kuvat, and the very strange Ode To Marilyn with Edward Vesala and others - two albums I never dreamed of ever getting a reissue!
Expected delivery: due on 26 June


Monster Melodies Records...

Thinking of stocking a few releases on Monster Melodies Records ‎from France. Mostly unreleased recordings of the French 1970s underground. These are LP only, and are not cheap (will be around £25 retail I think), and include: Xalph (moody Shub Niggurath / Eskaton type band), Robert Wood And Woodlands - Live at Lons Le Saulnier, 1974 (excellent trippy psych/prog by electric vibes player, Gong & Lard Free related), Eclosion - Eclosion (excellent trippy folk-psych/experimental, ex Ame Son), Moving Gelatine Plates (unreleased sessions and live), etc.
Anyone interested? More info at: https://www.discogs.com/label/613034-Monster-Melodies-Records


still waiting for...

Galactic Explorers - EPITAPH FOR VENUS (Mental Experience) LP - delayed due to pressing problems

Web problems
Email: recently I was bombed with spam on utle2uk with thousands of mails per minute and the only way to stop it was to report it, which means the spam has stopped but I can't send mail on that account. I will set up a new main account on btconnect if they can't restore it. But, for now I have to send mails on gmail. So, if you wish you email me (Alan) direct, please email xylem777@gmail.com instead.


Unofficial products
Discogs are stopping the sale all unofficial items via their database. This means that a few of the items we have in stock can no longer be sold via Discogs (even though these were purchased via official UK distributors). They include the following labels: Bamboo, Germanofon, Phoenix, etc.
