New in the shop this month.
‘Murgatroyd the Monster (A Northern Noir)’ is another
installment in the 'MONSTER' series and is to be released for
the 2013 Record Store day on the 20th of April. Released by
Blackest Rainbow records on clear vinyl in an edition of 300
The album is inspired by film noir, Yorkshire and Lancashire
dialect and slang and the excellent Red Riding (a television
adaptation of author David Peace's Red Riding Quartet).
The album can and should be considered as part radio play,
part celebration of northern English culture and an appreciation
of language. The words are printed in full on the back of the
sleeve to confuse and bemuse you further.
At long last the CD version of Sutekh Hexen's 'Breed in me
the Darkness - The Second Coming Mixes by Andrew Liles' is in
stock. The CD is housed in beautiful gatefold style digifle
packaging, printed throughout and with spot UV varnish. Pressing
is in an edition of 500.

Please go to the SHOP if you would
like any of these new releases.
Every effort will be made to package these records to have
a safe transit, including bubblewrap and stiffeners. Unfortunately
no UK mail carrier will insure glass at a reasonable cost so
we cannot take liability for any breakages.
this month I would like to say how saddened I am by the news
that Kristian Kotarac of Nextera has died. Kristian was a great
supporter of my music and released the album 'My Long Accumulating
Discontent'. I met him several times on visits to Prague and
he will sorely missed.

NEW IN THE SHOP
AND SHIPPING NOW
'Ninki Nanka, Yumboes & Monsters' is another
installment in the 'MONSTER' series. The 'MONSTER' collection
aims to push musical boundaries and embrace a varied selection
of musical styles and influences.
'In 2008 I heard that Andrew W.K. was producing an album
by Lee 'Scratch' Perry. I knew Andrew through his contributions
both live and in the studio with Current 93. So being a fan
of 'Scratch' I pleaded to be sent the multi-tracks so that I
could make my own 'dub' mix purely for my own entertainment.
I ditched all the existing music and recorded my own then added
Mr. Perry's voice. I sent the results back to Andrew who seemed
to like them at the time and there was some talk of releasing
the mix some day, alas that day never arrived.'
Roll on 4 years and I have remixed those remixes,
removed any sign of Lee 'Scratch' Perry (due to legal reasons)
and added a further 3 'dub' mixes to an album called 'Ninki
Nanka, Yumboes & Monsters'. The album is on CD only.

2013 and BEYOND
'FAST FORWARD THROUGH TIME (ILLUSION FOUR)'
Completed over the past 18 months are a set of recordings based
on concepts on the passage of time, time travel and also in
part on the ideas of John von Neumann, specifically his ideas
on the self-reproducing universal constructor and his lecture
‘The General and Logical Theory of Automata’. More about von
Neumann can be read here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_von_Neumann
As an antidote to the tongue-in-cheek, brash and
often extreme ‘Monster’ series the '... Through Time' discs
are a collection of very serious, austere, melodramatic and
romantic pieces primarily constructed from piano, piano strings,
gongs and cymbals.
There are four releases in the series. The fourth and final
part of the series is ‘Fast Forward Through Time (Illusion Four)’.
This will be a two track L.P. to be released by United Dairies
(the first vinyl release on the label in over 20 years). This
will be the first in the series and will be released 2013. The
front cover is by Babs Santini and is pictured above.
Recently there have been
some original drawings by Andrew added to the shop. They sold
out within 24 hours without any notification going out to the
wider public. New material will be added to the shop over the
coming weeks and months. If you are interested please check
regularly at the shop as this art will not be advertised on
