If you check the credits of The Rolling Stones- Goats Head Soup LP from 1973 you-ll find a certain @Pascal@ listed on the percussion section. That is none other than Los Angeles based artist Nicolas Pascal Raicevik *1933/1994(, aka 107/34/8933, aka Head, aka Nik Pascal, aka Nik Raicevic. Besides his hitting the bongoes on the Stones album, Nik was a great artist on his own, both as a painter and as a musician. As a musician, he was a pioneer in the use of synthesizers, preceeding the Berlin school by some years when his Head LP was released on on Buddah in 1970. Buddah probably saw in Head the opportunity to cash in s... + INFO

Edip Akbayram-s a frail guy who spent his childhood unable to walk, but once he grew up he was on Istanbul TV in a whitey/fro and knee length colored robes. Akbayram-s voice is big ^ open, and it took him all across Turkey at the height of Anatolian psychedelia. This 1st album collects precious singles from 1972/74, with dark melodies that descend in loose spirals, seemingly forever. Tunes taken from mystic Sufi poets who played the baglama, but retrofitted with hard plowing electric bass lines, funky drums, fuzz/wah guitars and keyboards.
Third album by Turkish psychedelic singer Edip Akbayram, originally released in 1982. This later 3rd album really ramps up the silly synthesizers. You'll hear whooshy 80s Rolands, vocals run through a harmonizer, and tons of totally tubular bass popping, and it all makes it darned easy to hear just where the western intros and breaks stop. Ever wish Knight Rider's Kitt could drive to Istanbul? Take a ride on cheesy synthesizers with Edip at the wheel! Remastered sound, with insert.
Produced by The Faces' Ronnie Lane and taped in London's Marquee Studios, this lost Afro-funk classic was originally released in North America only in August 1972, and makes its CD debut here. Consisting of Ghanaian percussionist Speedy Acquaye (who also worked with The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, Rod Stewart and many others), Nigerian bassist Biddy Wright (a member of the legendary Blo), Jamaican conga drummer Jeff Whittaker and London-based guitarist Peter Andrews, the quartet delivers a hard-hitting, irresistibly funky blend of rock and funk that's sure to appeal to beat-diggers everywhere.
Limited to only 400 copies. Al Lover's newest single is an obvious tip of the hat to two ground breaking bands / Neu! and Suicide. Taking the influence to an absurdist display of grat/itude, Al channels *through his distorted lens( the locked groove and ethereal synth swaths of Neu! and the bruiting discord of Suicide. Combining them in varying degrees on each song, the result is two freaked out, a tonal sides of the same repetitive coin. Not quite remix, not quite cover version.
Reissue of the second album by the French prog influenced pop group. You may expect mellow dreamy atomspheres, dramatic upbeat sections with some obvious psych influences in places, some orchestration, some flute, and strong tracks tracks. Originally dating from 1972.
In Turkey, psychedelia wasnt just some fleeting fad. Fuzzed-out guitar shredding genuinely intersected with some of the goals of traditional folk & classical music. As a result, even former twist singers & folk balladeers explored some fascinating & wild territory. Meet Alpay, the soccer player turned lawyer turned singer who started matching local lyrics to Western arrangements even before the mid-60s countrywide battle of the bands concerts. These early 70s singles lay down doleful Anatolian melodies, and they're simply soaking in heavy & wah-ed out guitar solos. If you're ready to go beyond Baris & Erkin, this is t... + INFO

Wolfgang Ambros *born March 19, 1952 in Wolfsgraben, Nieder├Âsterreich( is an Austrian singer/songwriter, most famously known for setting the then/new trend in the 1970s known now as Austropop.

THE ANTIKAROSHI present their fourth album on Exile On Mainstream, making their own existence a topic and questioning their approaches in a much more self/referential attitude than ever before. On their previous recordings, the band established themselves as a band with longevity, a band who draw upon their roots in DC punk and hardcore but rework the ideas to create music that is at times unexpected and always unconventional. In fact, the three/piece hailing from Potsdam, Germany is the very antithesis of convention, and on their brand new album they take it one step further.

Apollo's only album from 1969 is considered as a very important landmark in finnish underground music, mainly of two reasons.First: it was one of the very first albums featuring this brand of music in Finland, and second: it encouraged further bands to create progressive music and to sing in their native tongue.Musically, Apollo is a typical late Sixties/early Seventies period piece: a great mixture of different styles, ranging from orchestrated ballads to freaked out stuff with lots of fuzz and experimentation.It's an eccentric album but it never gets boring!

Apryl Fool is one of the rarest and most sought after pieces of Japanese psychedelia, originally released in 1969. Formed out of the ashes of a Monkees worshiping beat group, and featuring 2 members that would go on to form the legendary Yellow Magic Orchestra, Apyrl Fool captures perfectly the baked and burnt outer edges of late 60s psych. Moody, fuzzy, bluesy, trippy, spacey, heavy, proggy; you name it, this record has it all. This is hard psych at its finest and it's finally back in print on LP.

Perfect mix of dark pop and space rock, a modern take on the classic shoegaze sound. The album is a re-invention of influence, ranging from melodic gems (think Stereolab meets Broadcast) to epic prog jams, tied securely yet ever so loosely together by haunting male and female vocals. The LP brims with layered dissonance and experimentation ├á la Disco Inferno & This Heat being driven by the Motorik Kraut rhythms of Neu and Can.

A euphoric transcendental journey to a mountain top nirvana, a psychedelic tapestry that slowly unwinds as they travel onwards into the inner mind.

Previously unreleased demo album from 1969, UK. The loudest band from Hull in the 60s, Bare Sole played raw, in-your-face psychedelic hard rock and heavy blues. Bare Soles brief existence at the tail end of the 1960s reflected the realistic trappings of their geographical situation. Musical icons such as Mick Ronson and Robert Palmer would eventually rise to fame outside of their native Hull, but Bare Sole sadly only managed a handful of out-of-town gigs and a tour of US air bases in Germany. As it was, their entire existence fitted inside just over a year, but at least their inspired musical legacy has survi... + INFO

If Lucio Battisti was Italy-s answer to France-s Serge Gainsbourg, then -Amore E Non Amore- is his own -Histoire De Melody Nelson-, a concept album that-s widely regarded as a formative artistic achievement *if far from the most hit packed album( of his respective career. Both albums were released in 1971. For Battisti, the concept came from that dichotomous title> there-s a rocky -non/love- side of the album, which has songs about obsession and adultery, and a -love- side of dreamy, prog/rock instrumentals. This set was recorded with the complete PFM band as session musicians.

Montreal, Quebec, Canada, three-piece BIG|BRAVE plays sincere, long-form out-rock that ventures in to different directions - at times mournful and unsettling - their music plays out in to moon-bleached grunge where serene vocals crumble over scraping guitars bled of melody. Sometimes its the sound you dont make. Big|Brave chooses their silences carefully, oscillating between sparse, gentle arrangements and deep swells of noise. They are patient, their crescendos tidal and graceful. Heavy drums come up against haunting vocal melodies. Moody guitar tones swirl. Slowly they recede into something more atmospheric, a qui... + INFO
The Boutique Label presents an expanded vinyl edition of Backdoor Possibilities, the sixth album by cult German prog rockers Birth Control, originally released on the Brain Records imprint in 1976.Formed in Berlin in 1968, Birth Control were known for a progressive hard rock sound which fused elements of jazz, psychedelia and so/called Krautrock. A surreal concept suite recorded with famed producer Conny Plank, Backdoor Possibilities arguably marked a final creative peak, blending rock, jazz, classical and avant/garde stylings with intricate polyrhythmic textures and lyrical nods to the legends of Faust and Odysseus.O... + INFO
Great heavyweight 2LP/set featuring the best tracks from the 1972 to 1975 period including the group-s signature track @Gamma Ray@.

"Most would probably agree that this is one of the very best psych-style LPs from the 1980s. Not retro at all but (like Bobb Trimble) a piece of the late 1960s preserved from times rust. Male/female vocals lament and serenade the quest for knowledge of love and beauty in an appealing soundscape, with lyrical guitar leads throughout, good use of mellotron, occasional tablas, flute and bells.The recording has a definite 1981 sound but (again, like Bobb Trimble) this somehow becomes an advantage. Theres not a questionable song on this album, recommended to anyone open for a soft, dreamy trip inside the melancholy and bli... + INFO
Amazing previously unreleased 1976 recordings by psychedelic progsters Blat Brut. Highly touched by the works of Jimi Hendrix, Traffic, John Mayall, Pink Floyd or Jethro Tull, the band melted all their influences into a unique sound and delivered extended heady instrumental jams with a tight, ferocious drum & bass backline under guitar pyrotechnics and psyched-out flute arrangements. This band was not only formed by its four musicians, their line-up also included two sound engineers who built their equipment and created the sound effects heard on the instruments. They where also responsible for these recordings made i... + INFO

Blues Creation was founded in Tokyo in 1969. They released this, their impossibly rare debut of American blues covers, that same year. Featuring covers of Sonny Boy Williamson, Chester Burnett, Memphis Slim, Willie Dixon, and more, this is the greatest recorded example of the Japanese obsession with American blues music. The band would record several more albums and then come back as, simply, Creation, but nothing reached the sheer blues rock heights of their debut.
1979 follow/up to his Eclipse debut, Voyage Cerebral was the second effort by french synthetist Didier Bocquet.

DOUBLE 180-GRAM VINYL ONLY RELEASE with etched D-Side of Boduf Songs' 'Burnt Up On Re-Entry'. The album offers an infinite space where dark psychedelics are crafted using a combination of raw electronics, manipulated samples and heavy rock guitar. Where once other instruments were rare interludes betwixt brooding vocals and carefully plucked guitar, now they have a much bigger part to play, shaping entire songs into an animated whole. The song craft remains centered around a heavy melodic and melancholic core, which has been prevalent across the entire Boduf Songs canon. Download included.
Credited as one of the best late 60's German psych-rock albums, Bokaj Retsiem's ("meister Jakob" with reversed letters!) "Psychedelic Underground" is an eccentric, soulful, acid and fuzzy rockin' essay that clearly prefigures a part of the Krautrock movement. Featuring Rainer Deigner, former guitar for the sixties beat German group Former Bonds, as the only credited musician and composer on this album (although other musicians assisted him on bass, keyboards, and that B3 Hammond and Leslie sound), this is basically Rainer's freaked-out tribute to his favorite children's song, "Meister Jakob", consisting in trippy inst... + INFO

Juan Arkotxa, Leslie MacKenzie and Carmeta Mansilla were the creators of The Book Of Am. The Book Of Intxitxu was another of their works, they began working on its songs and illustrations just after they finished the four parts of The Book Of Am in the late 1970s.

San Diegos only psychedelic cops is how this brilliant California band presented theirselves in their promo posters. Psychedelic they certainly were, though they might better be described as a British influenced garage-psychedelic band perhaps.

Unavailable for some time now on vinyl, heres a welcome new reissue of this powerful organ-guitar garage rock beauty. Comes in a silk-screened fabric bag, insert and 180g vinyl. New linernotes courtesy of Clark Faville.
Repress!! 1973's brilliant Celestial Ocean, by the legendary Swiss krautrock band Brainticket, is a concept album that details an ancient pharoah's journey into the afterlife (substitute the word "journey" for "trip" and you'll get what they were driving at). However, Brainticket were not mere products of their time, they explored some truly compelling musical territory and produced a superlative blanket of sound-featuring a pioneering mix of early synthesizers, flute, zither, sitar, and male / female stream-of-consciousness spoken word vocals-that ebbs and flows in the same general cosmos as classic Gong, going on to... + INFO
