U12 LETTERA 22 - Salvado CD 12€
Recorded during two days in the spring of 2022, Salvado sees Lettera 22
go all in musique concrete. One single long tape loop worming its way around
a room through three reel recorders, only sparingly tampered with in the process.
The result is far from uneventful or passive though, as all the ghosts in the old
machinery seem to come alive. An album perfect for nighttime immersion.
Loud playback recommended.
U11 KERÄNEN - Tammisalo Tapes : The Final Early Recordings CD 12€
Five early tracks of thundering noise from the finnish noise king. While
perhaps best known as being one half of Testicle Hazard, his solo CD albums
Bats In The Attic and Moon Over Torrelorca are modern day classics in our book,
and we just felt it couldn't hurt to have some the recorded steps leading up
to those albums made available in the compact disc format as well. Three rare
odds-and-ends kind of tracks, and finishing the disc is Keränen's Green Car Crash,
originally released as a C30 in 2009. All remastered by Samuli Tanner.
U10 STEWART SKINNER - For The Happiness Of The World CD 11€
We are more than proud to pull this trickster out of his shadowy abode
and display him to the world. Finally, the album many of us have been
waiting for but don't deserve. Cracksteel, M.B., Robert Ashley's Wolf Man,
Monde Bruits, British and Italian mischiefs from the 1980's - all filtered
through the mind of our menacing court jester. The outcome is as colorful
as it is lethal. Wild sonics, sharp corners and contrasts.
U09 C.C.C.C. - Polygon Islands CD 11€
The Polygon Islands 7” was orignially released in a sparse edition
of 85 copies on Austrian label Syntactic in 1998. The twin force of
Mayuko Hino (theremin, electronics) and Hiroshi Hasegawa (synthesizer)
here somehow manage to sound more grandiose and fierce than ever,
despite the stripped down lineup. Those who have heard their duo
pieces from the phenomenal Rocket Shrine CD (Test/Creativeman Disc, 1997)
have a hunch of what they're in for. Otherworldly harsh psychedelia.
Filling out the rest of this disc is yet another Hino/Hasegawa rager,
a 29 minute live set captured in Paris, June 9th 1997, by Romain Perrot.
All remastered by Linus Andersson at Elementstudion, Gothenburg.
U08 BLIND DATE - Thank You CD 11€
Tyler Keen takes an unexpected and exciting turn. Thank You
sees him demolish the unrelenting harsh noise he's known for
in real time, knocking down walls and cutting wires one by one,
rendering it a way more treacherous, perilous and above all open
structure than before; imagine a harsh take on the sonic trapdoors
of Joe Colley. Helping him out melting things down on two tracks
are Kyle Flanagan and Michael Foster.
U07 A.B.O. - Documentation '89 - '93 CD 11€
An exellent glimpse into one of the more poorly lit corners
of Swedish experimental sound. This CD collects some of the
earliest solo recordings of Joachim Nordwall, under the moniker
A.B.O. Our ears catch whiffs of Francois Douris and the likes,
but any definite reference eludes us.
”Growing up in the remote south East of Sweden was great for
anyone into having a bad start in life. In my early teens I was
exposed through my friend Zwarre to suitable music like Throbbing
Gristle, Brainbombs and SPK. Perfect for my melted mind. We started
a label and recorded psychedelic electronic music as Alvars Orkester.
Alvars was strange enough but I needed something more extreme. I had
been recording stuff in my room since 1987 but most of it was intensely
bad (of course). Then in 1989, something happened and I started to
hit the right (wrong) note. I was deeply consuming experimental
music on cassette and my favs were artists like Paul Kelday, Nails
ov Christ, Teen Lesbians and Animals and labels like Sound of Pig,
Schimpfluch, RRR and Cold Meat Industry ruled my world. A.B.O. was
ment to be private music, stuff I actually did not intend anyone to
hear. The few cassettes I did for Börft Records were all ultra
limited and the few labels who asked for material,
I never even replied.”
U06 THE FLEA CIRCUS - A Touch Of Grey CD 11€
The power trio Mirande/English/Skinner has dug out a strangely
lit tunnel between the dustier nooks and crannies of the rich and
varied 1980’s industrial scene and the just as elusively defined
experimental field of today where they themselves reside. While it
certainly reeks S*Core, Illusion Of Safety and whathaveyou, their
very own fingerprints are all over the place, freshening things up.
An outside-of-time album we are very pleased to offer!
U05 MACRONYMPHA - Ultimate Vibrator 2CD 16€
Usagi is proud present this much sought after gem from the vast
Macronympha discography. Released in 1994, Ultimate Vibrator is one
of the earlier testaments of Rodger Stella's meticulous editing and
mixing genius, and above all his ability to crack open sonic chasms
and fill them with the strangest of colors. An older sibling of classic
Macronympha mind melters such as Grind and Baroque, but also a more
aggressive sonic relative to Stella's work under the One Dark Eye moniker.
Filling up the closing half of the second disc are a number of previously
unreleased tracks and sketches from the Ultimate Vibrator sessions.
2CD digipak, edition of 300, remastered at Elementstudion by Linus Andersson.
U04 SEWER ELECTION – Antarktis CD 11€
Six tracks of icy, dry, blistering, barren and unforgiving noise.
Recorded and mixed at Studio Malign, Kortedala, 2021. Electronics,
metal objects and reel-to-reel tape manipulation.
U03 C.C.C.C. - Gnosis CD 11€
Originally released as a cassette in 1994 by Drahtfunk Products,
Gnosis shows Hasegawa, Hino, Kosakai and Nagakubo weaving a tapestry
of strange exotic vistas and harsh chafing textures, exploring sonic
depths and caverns not heard before or after. A standout and much
sought after gem in the C.C.C.C. discography. Remastered by Hiroshi
Hasegawa in April 2021, and finally available in a generous edition.
U02 CAPERS - Lungs CD 11€
With the LP Dregs in 2018, the Capers sound palette was expanded
considerably. On Lungs, recorded not long after Dregs, the sound palette
was instead kept at a minimum, and the composition simple, restrained and
monotonous. Sparse, ever-sinking, rough, repetitive and patterned noise.
For heads into early Zone Nord and Vårtgård. Previously released as a C30
in 2019 by Canadian label Freedom Club, with one of the tracks omitted to
better fit the cassette format. Lungs is now available in its originally
intended full length, on CD in digipak.
U01 INCAPACITANTS - Unauthorized Fatal Operation 990130 CD
Recorded live at UFO Club in Kōenji, Tokyo, on January 30, 1999. Incapacitants
in their finest capacity, blending harsh electronic psychedelia, mayhemic screech
and visceral ecstasy. Previously released by OR in 1999 on CDR, now available for
posterity on CD in digipak. Also included in this reissue is a 22 minute live
document, recorded at Shinsaibashi Club Quattro on February 10, 2001.
