listening to Luna Park Ensemble now, listened to Frank Fromy this morning

Dominique, Tuesday, 10 April 2007 20:02 (thirteen years ago) link

the Luna Park Ensemble is good, especially the first track, which was the same one on the 'Welcome to Dreamland' compilation Frith put together in the 80's that got me curious about them -- but I think that first track is my favorite

Ralph Lundsten really quite good. Fadervar & the 3 LPs post are completely out Cluster / Schnitzler electronic psyche, with one or two confusing moments of James Last 70's orchestral pop for squares. Living a little near Wakhevich, only the electronic freakouts are more sustained and weirder, and the 'song' bits are much less freaky. Almost everything past 78 seems really tame & commercial which is probably why I'm only finding out about these earlier space records now

ralph lundsten is indeed smarto neato. I urge everyone to download simon steensland's "the zombie hunter" it's like if ruins were vikings it is the vertiginously huge ultra-zeuhl! (oh they have such a terrible habit of posting up things just after i spent 10 years and some pennies tracking the bastards down on cd!)
hajime XXXXX (japanese name can't remember it) is smart too - herky jerky synth / sampler cubist-pop

the whale songs are corny though.

where was the lundsten love when i started my lundsten thread?

Ralph Lundsten S/D

scott seward, Monday, 21 May 2007 14:00 (thirteen years ago) link

i knew not a thing of lundsten until the mutant sounds posts!
recent hits for me is "paga" by the paga group super zeuhl;
jean phillipe goude - ex weidorje keyboardist doing wiggly zeuhly mahavishnu/radiophonical instrumentalisms;
and the toubabou thing which at least in parts is mean zeuhl funk if a bit daytime tv / cop show.
and had it anyway but the saqqara dogs is the nuts if you ignore a coupla embarrassing tracks. kinda krauty pinkfloydish but punky / middle eastern thing.
and expo - expo is the cat's whiskers!
and "name" - henry kaiser cubistpop beefhearty & strangely shrubsalike.
there's too much !! (no complaint!)

bob snoom, Monday, 21 May 2007 17:36 (thirteen years ago) link

that Paga album has been killing me. It really might as well be another Weidorje record.

Dominique, Tuesday, 22 May 2007 22:38 (thirteen years ago) link

also, I think at some point mutant sounds posted the goude/oliver cole record from 1975, which I like better than drones. it's maybe jazzier, but I love hearing those guys play. also check out the jacques thollot record they posted the other day -- hopefully they will post cinq hops or resurrgence, but all of them are good chamberish/vaguely zuehlish (or maybe just french) jazz

Dominique, Tuesday, 22 May 2007 22:47 (thirteen years ago) link

Artemyev record of Synthi 100 things was initially disappointing compared to the ANS synth pieces he made for the Tarkovsky soundtracks, but by the end of the record the cheesy 70's synth epics had grown on me. more sub-Vangelis / Jarre / Tomita than weird drones.

the Francesco Curra is interesting, not sure how many times I'm going to come back to it, but a tightly edited / cut-together suite of noises & tiny song fragments. much stranger than Battiato's Fetus though just as well recorded, some parts like a far more coherent Tazartes.

the two Derome / Lussier (Granules) records definitely have their proggy moments, this is what Skeleton Crew should have been like

other than that, still listening to Catherine Ribiero a lot, especially the 2Bis one

Milton Parker, Wednesday, 23 May 2007 08:28 (thirteen years ago) link

why does my computer not understand that i already installed a file manager for .rar? :(

fukasaku tollbooth, Wednesday, 23 May 2007 23:28 (thirteen years ago) link

Catherine Ribeiro link?? cant find that shit

chaki, Thursday, 24 May 2007 01:13 (thirteen years ago) link

bob snoom, steensland actually reminds me of thinking plague/5uus/science group stuff a bit

Dominique, Thursday, 24 May 2007 02:32 (thirteen years ago) link

stuffit has no problem with .rar files.

Catherine Ribiero is one of two things I ever actually go back to.

dan selzer, Thursday, 24 May 2007 03:43 (thirteen years ago) link

they posted it, be careful with 'Uaxuctum'

also chaki: check the jan / feb archives for Ribeiro

Milton Parker, Monday, 4 June 2007 18:44 (thirteen years ago) link

you have a link to that dan?

fukasaku tollbooth, Monday, 4 June 2007 19:12 (thirteen years ago) link

Francisco - Cosmic Beam Experience, 1976

two short but well produced 70's freakfolk songs. and three tracks of massive bowed metal, field recordings, chimes and drums, some moments are up there w/ Garlo's 'Vent De Guitares'

Milton Parker, Tuesday, 13 November 2007 22:06 (twelve years ago) link

actually it's closer to a 70's Zoviet-France that keeps getting derailed by folky new age interludes

Milton Parker, Tuesday, 13 November 2007 22:08 (twelve years ago) link

oo ive been meaning to track that album down because of skots sweet smoke mix. sounds more like taj mahal travellers / early ash ra than zf though.

, Wednesday, 14 November 2007 00:33 (twelve years ago) link

amplified i-beam. seriously.

GOTT PUNCH II HAWKWINDZ, Thursday, 15 November 2007 07:59 (twelve years ago) link

Love this blog for posting the AshRa Private Tapes.

Capitaine Jay Vee, Sunday, 30 December 2007 22:02 (twelve years ago) link

I just DL'd all of January and February. So far, I like:

Alesia Cosmos - Aeroproducts LP
Arbete & Fritid
Art Ensemble Of Chicago/Brigitte Fontaine (amazing record)
Asmus Tietchens - In Die Nacht
Aunt Sally
Cage/Tudor - Indeterminacy (never heard this clasic before)

Did not like:

Alvaro (not weird at all)
Ame Son (prog/jazz wank)
Beau (pedestrian folk)

I haven't even made it past the "C" section yet!

Revive this shit.Best blog everrrr.Anyone listen to that Warning album?Any suggestions?

NewBeefLover, Thursday, 16 October 2008 22:54 (eleven years ago) link

warning album's awesome. cod-disco-death-metal-goth-80s shit. zenith effluvium is ok late 70s basement jams. more psych/hippie than debris or whatever they reference. unfortunately the rest of my M-S mp3s are on my old PC and i haven't been able to get them to the new one yet so that's about all i remember right now.

REIGN IN FUDGE (GOTT PUNCH II HAWKWINDZ), Friday, 17 October 2008 07:22 (eleven years ago) link

Yeah,the Warning record rules.I put it on for people and tell them it's the new Animal Collective record that just leaked.They go-"What?Get the fuck outta here"!

NewBeefLover, Friday, 17 October 2008 15:12 (eleven years ago) link

there's a thing on this blog in this month's issue of the wire. it's kind of patronizing?

walter (wilter), Tuesday, 28 October 2008 23:09 (eleven years ago) link

anyone checked out the recent flood of electronic cassettes from the early 80s?
