Soleilmoon is distributing a old Zoviet France recording that was never issued, from 1985. It's on Klanggallerie, though. That and a couple of Edward Ka-Spel reissues are about all I want from them right now. It's kind of sad to see the decline, I know they're caught in this weird limbo between label and distributor. They won't go thru regular distros, you gotta go through them, with the result that their stuff isn't is stores much. AFAIK the Pink Dots aren't releasing new stuff on the label anymore either.

What, you don't want an Ant-Zen coffee mug? Or a twenty dollar Hafler Trio 7"?

In all seriousness there are some great deals on back catalog right now, but this may not bode well for the labels. You can get Edward Ka-Spel's "Chyekk/Aazhyhd" double CD for nine bucks.
