12" Vinyl LP / limited edition / Gatefold cover + glossy fold-out insert

1970-USA

Release notes :

This is the vinyl re-release of World In Sound´s limited collectors edition from the year 2008. Without any doubt Cold Sun are one of Austin's milestones of the heavy-acid-psych and garage movement. The album was recorded in 1970 in the legendary Sonobeat studios, where the Mariani and Johnny Winter´s first LPs were produced. Cold Sun are considered contemporaries of Velvet Underground and The Fugs, often listed as being in a similar vein, but inspirations for this unique piece actually go back to the desperated, haunting sound of Joe Meek. All seven tunes lyrically express a dark and mystic poetry combined with the deep floating 60s psychedelic fuzz spirit, presented in compact mini-epics along with several mind blowing long tunes, such as "Ra-Ma", "Here In The Year" and "Fall".

Autoharp wizard Billy Miller eventually spearheaded Roky Erickson`s international debut as the Cold Sun band joined forces with Roky in 1974 and backed Roky´s Aliens on his famous albums and historical concerts. Carefully remastered from the mastertapes, this album will bring new rewarding listening experiences in expanded fidelity; contains a poster with bio and memorabilia. These recordings were back then only been released on acetate and were discovered by Dallas´ Rockadelic Records in 1991. Then “Dark Shadows” saw the light of day as a limited LP version, to become today one of the most important and revered Texas psychedelic underground gems from the early 70s!

CD Digipack (reissue) / Limited to 500 copies

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

GUNSLINGERS-No more invention

Ship to France

Ship to International

 

12" vinyl lp / Limited to 500 copies / Gatefold cover

* All tracks by Gunslingers

** Recorded & mixed by Seb Norman

Lineup :

GR : Guitar & Guitar-Lighter, Yaya Preach, Feedback, 4TTR

Matthieu Canaguier : Thunderbass

Antoine Hadjioannou : Prophetic Beats 

Release notes :

Here is the self-confessed Slinger’s electric companion, a huge onset tour de force hailing from the realm of San Pedro (FR) and that should cause weird effects through Invention’s great (golden) Ass.

First came Gunslingers, raising against the Big Bullshit, then came No More Invention, wearing a nine-acts sling of an hilarious outrage, introducing the ultimate assault of her illegitimate 3 sons, also known as massacre-rock deviant inquisitors_ a French deconstructionist trio who needed to abuse the artifacts of some Lost Rock Synthesis in one Total, furious & quintessential record, like an evil paradox of Rock.

Expect pure apotheosis of wild horror biker freakouts, acid avant-punk & trippy psych-noise with no respite from the Action breakneck speed : Gregory Raimo aka GR’s incriminating unspoken Yaya words and unparalleled orgiastic guitar savagery over control, spacey analog effects fulminations & feedbacks culminating with Matthieu Canaguier ‘s hypnotic & castrationist ritual Thunderbass, and Antoine Hadjioannou’s prophetic mad with scalp crashing down Drums-machete! _From the gigantic 13’ min. long blowing krauty prayer of Lighter Slinger Festival to the frightening embodiment of Nathaniel Hauthorne’s The Minister’s Black Veil, this is some magnetizing unknown & sacred distillation !

Loud & irreverent up to hilarity, and paradoxically, largely out of any category, this freakish explosive mixture, recorded in 2007 in three days, re-pioneers the hijacking of Rock landmarks. Probably based on Lady Hysteria’s (herself) voluntary uncontrolled intent, Gunslingers’ No More Invention spreads the enlightenment of catastrophic happenings and a non-sense of epic Blackout scenes into electric rounds of fury _Be prepared for a constant state of shock ! 

Tracklisting :

(Side A) I. Into The Garage II. Lighter Slinger Festival III. King Yaya’s Forty Guns (Side B) I. San Pedro Hallucination II. The Beheaded Motorbiker’s Head III. Black Dwarf Man IV. Gigolo Albinos V. Auschwitz Boogie VI. The Minister’s Black Veil
