Featuring Junk Nurse : Guitar & voice 

Release notes :

Vinyl edition of this enigmatic artefact: Hôpital De La Conception (The Electric Rockin’ Chair), a real mind-distorter for all zealots of primitive electric guitar fury and utter expression of instinctive command _, a tantalizing charge of impenetrable origin, deeply infused in savage fire and filled with unruly beauty. 

Hôpital de la conception - The electric rockin' chair (inside view)

The so-called Hôpital De La Conception has seemingly arranged it all well in order to maintain an aura of mystery and ensure the untraceability of the band member(s)’ real identity; as a matter of fact, the only thing to feed our fantasies lies exclusively in the disclosure of the man-behind-the-guitar&voice’s epic moniker: Junk Nurse. What’s going on here?! The cover mentions « Hôpital De La Conception, featuring Junk Nurse in The Electric Rockin’ Chair ». Thus are we desperately conjecturing (in vain?) about the existence of a shifting collective, but which actually reveals us its very first known incarnation in soloing itself on guitar in the person of Junk Nurse..?.. —Yet the name itself allows one to catch a glimpse of the kind of deal to expect!

And indeed, hear what happens once Junk Nurse is being set in The electric rockin’ chair: a powerful dichotomy gliding over the music form—, an influx of deconstruction, a barrage of free-form excavations meeting with a minimalist (and spooky!) edifice which repeatedly hammers its mantra with motorik pressure. One feels there is a strong inclination to defy the music genre by opening the possibilities for improvisation and developing progressive structural changes.

The recording offers two massive instrumental pieces like resonant monoliths, fully urban and in (most likely) unusual open-chord tuning. Besides, a haunting sporadic singing is found interspersed in the flow, it arises in sudden bursts and in an unexpected way like to summon the spirit of a forgotten protest.

The gripping guitar tone enables Junk Nurse to so sharpen his style to the most expressive edge, as we also see him able to enter the realm of Guitar-Feedback loudness through a melodic door leading to a unique mastery in subtle & complex frequencies and, from there, to definitely unfold such an onslaught of guitar sounds as scary as dazzling for the senses. Directly mastered from reel tape, Hôpital De La Conception’s The electric rockin’ chair is an inspirational journey through the meanders of intense saturation & rumbling vibes, one of these rare ecstatic experiences to surface in our new Millenium.

* Available in a limited serie of 300 vinyl LPs, each label getting 100 copies

Lineup : GR = All instruments  

Release notes :

" Give my nerves a little workout, ____my flesh sonic uppers ; I wanna sound like a busy signal, by day & night fillin' in the blanks. " (from Vertical take-Off, part 1)

GR's Propel Tension On Polyester Base is a decisive effort in tape recording, 13 private tracks taken from the archives of an adventurous mind and forming a mysterious sound diary, a core part in the evolution of GR's style and a secretive work in progress highlighting an incessant appetite for putting a tentacular vision onto the recordable surface at hand. Among the tracks presented here _ which were taped between 2008/2016 _ some are achieved in one blow with evident fulgurance, while some others are initiated early and completed years later in different spaces, non-similar phases, bringing to the sound textures some unfathomable provenance ; the material is relentlessly tracked down by following the natural path of self-autonomy over space & time.

" The featured material was taped non-uniformally, various analog recorders and spaces were used over a period of private stimulation. " (GR mentions on the back cover)

The spectrum of styles & processes approached and developed by GR on those recordings is ultimately wide. Free construct open rhythm, hear the dead snare at your heels, freer rock, hard kicking grooves & serpentine pulse shall scare the hell out of ultra moving asses in the rush, saturation, dangerous proto-punk, the most menacing monster-fuzz downtown, cosmic elektronische & psycho tape looping, abstract instrumentals, fingerpicking to the decadent, possessed vocals and wicked street-punk delivery, non-chordal guitar excess, reel to reel manipulations, a mastery of fixed sounds through the written & unwritten… — Propel tension on polyester base, tapes archives.

1-take capture in San Pedro Ville _2012_

Lineup :

GR : Guitar Distillation / Arguments

Matthieu Canaguier : Thunderbass

Antoine Hadjioannou : Prophetic Beats  

Release notes :

If you really ever fancied getting some true menacing power juice wherein nothing is to gaze at with hygienico-aseptic envy, it should be then heavily recommended that you experiment these Deviationist french ‘garçons’, supreme Heads Extraordinaires of San Pedro Ville and whose futuristic morality & vision led to the founding of the mysterious outfit : GUNSLINGERS ** MASSACRE-ROCK DEVIANT INQUISITORS

— Nobody’s ever really known about what has to be considered as the accurate band name—are both groups of words switchable or only one ? Such sharp connection between the terms would indeed almost make us define the band as being such as to require battling with the fluids of naming mayhem by use of avant-garde non-sense with relentless precision.

- Hey Slingers, come here a minute !—make your way forward to have us now explore further into the insanity orbit of yours…

Freakin’ weirdos, this 3rd sonic missive (following ‘No More Invention’ & ‘Manifesto Zero’) is a frantic outburst of unsubmissive tonal hallucination that reaches to the Parapet of acid proto-psych’punk and fully generatorized under the cunted mark of ‘alchemical free-form’ ; such immediate perilous activator of the jubilant excitation underlying the phantasmatic primitive mind. Its dynamics is infernal, shiny & oily, sudden & impulsive, serpentine & excavated, opaque white & translucent crimson combined within an aboriginal fire‘s luminescence.

GR’s 6-string visionary electric monster is an insurgent bottomless creature whose arousing & provoking distorted deployment shoots at everything that DOESN’T move or doesn’t get right into the accidental flow's subtlety ; then vertiginous riffage & master anti-riffage (laden with urgent electrifying fuzz-wha) merge savagely into one another : the kind of shamanic rapture that gets you triply high as Matthieu Canaguier’s Thunderbass & Antoine Hadjioannou’s Prophetic Beats expand massively into a psychotic fierce drive all the way, spreading pulsating emanations like scorching comets, and meeting in ethereal pathways with GR’s venomous disenchanted-&-no-less-magnetizing voice which pours down arguments like swirls of traumatized sputum.

In one word, these Slingers serve you another authentically twisted self-confessed disaster, a 2-part fearsome exploration that will, once again, make your eyes bleed.

Vinyl lp / Limited to 300 copies / White-coloured / Lacquer cutting processing

All tracks by GR

** Analog 4-track tape recording processed & mixed by GRegory Raimo

Lineup : GR = All instruments

Lead guitar & expansive guitar / horizontal bass / Regular & extensionist drums / loco-drums & asymmetric drumming / Wah-vocals & story / background organ & keyboard / Shouts & effects / 4-track tape recorder 

Release notes :

One man All-Made Record-Excavator into the deep limbo of egoXploitation—Features 43 min. of decadent loco self-conduct & mystifying woodoo’lectric playing, directly dropped down from the sole complexion of individual force as a plural human’s sonic concoction, the alone-lineup that never existed but in the incarnation of one : Full-Blown Expansion. Get into Gunslingers‘ founding member's alchemy — supreme wild stuff of weird, abstract & deviationist multi-instrumental solo performs, improvised & composed and elevated separately on each instrument & track by GR (mostly in one take).

Careful with that « Descent along the an-ti-fohn-nul »‘s 13 min. of extensionist drumming and seminal acid stoned guitars & wah-vocals driving that leads to the great infernal Boogie accident— Vs the regular alternation (in rhythm & guitar color tone) of the fuzzy oniric « Transfiguration on a sepiachord »— Vs the wizardesque inspiration of « The metal spike », GR’s one very archetypal & representative of the instant composition process & the superposition of orchestral muses. And careful again with that explosive insane unmethodic « The intercessor speaks », some ultra-shouting wave’s traumatic 7 min. towards the abyssal fluxus of koZmic Rock—Vs « The scene/slowly’s getting louder »’s ritual rotative-leslie & expansive wah noise guitars coming with special voice box— Vs « all stoned day long they take you » ‘s impossible alinear & asymmetric instrumental superposition (includ. Transcendantal background organ) backing up immaculate spoken poetry— Vs the enigmatic analog keys & clair-obscure of « Blind Black or pearly white ». — Bliss ! _LDBDP 

Tracklisting :

(Side A) I. Descent Along The An-Ti-Fohn-Nul II. Transfiguration On A Sepiachord III. The Metal Spike (Side B) I. The Intercessor Speaks II. The Scene (Slowly's Getting Louder) III. All Stoned Day Long They Take You IV. Blind Black Or Pearly White

All tracks by GR

** Analog 4-track tape recording processed & mixed by GRegory Raimo

Lineup : GR = All instruments

Guitar, Drums, Synthesizer & Effects, Electric Piano, Vocals, 4 TTR 

Notes :

GR’s truly neon’n’flourescent avant-Street Punk classic XPERIMENT FROM WITHIN THE TENTACULAR, a bedazzling motherfucking gem in the chaotic Chrome lo-fi vein of (get this!) the first two Alan Vega solo LPs through a NEU 2/’Ruckzuck’ filter playing Todd Clark’s abrasive electro album INTO THE VISION in the monolithic ‘synth’ style of COMPASS KUMPASS-period Dalek I Love You. Motherfucker! GR is Gregory Raimo, a mysterious and wonderfully stylish neo-Krautrock master in somewhat the same area as Christophe F. from the Universal Panzies or perhaps Klaus Bloch from Extrem Musik à La Ping Pong. What makes this disc stand out, however, is not so much GR’s use of rock clichés and archetypes, but the glorious low-fi Dr. Mix & the Re-Mix manner in which it’s all captured, as soaring Rotherian twin guitars bark out songs with such mysterious titles as ‘Berlin Corpse is the Sister Damage’ and ‘A Rainbow Damnation’. That’s so beautifully Sir Lord Baltimorean, and GR on vinyl is one beautiful spirit, too. _ Julian Cope
