Tarp - Tarp ()

LP Edition of 300 In the world we inhabit (the world of the underground), one of the easiest ways to categorize people who fall into our gutter is by analyzing their motives and history. Viewed by this light, people are either lifers or careerist fucks; dedicated to the cause now and forever, or stupid moths attracted to the occasional flashes of light that emanate from the pit. By this measure (and all others), Tarp are lifers. The duo, Conrad Capistran and Joshua Burkett (look up their glorious histories on line), began early in the century, during the ascendance of the plumbers’ crack noise revolution. But even then, they didn’t feel compelled to show their butts to the audience. They’d just… Read more »

Donkey No No - Tandoori Chicken (The Neverending Story) ()

LP Edition of 300 Second boss LP by this bossest of Western Mass trios. Comprised of Jenifer Gelineau on violin & electronics, Omeed Goodarzi on guitar, and Edward “Ted” Lee on bowed cymbal, Donkey No No create the sort of instrumental hallucinations you’d expect to hear in the background of a film by Jodorowsky or Arrabal. It’s very cool, because they use the very instruments you’d hear in some shitty Ken Burns documentary, in order to play music that would make Ken’s sallow head explode if he tried to wrap his noggin around it. With sometimes scratchy violin as the ostensible lead instrument, theoretical comparisons to old timey music are inevitable. But Donkey No No’s sound is old timey only… Read more »

Sex Tide - Possession Sessions ()

LP Edition of 300. No Download Included. Down to the last box of records… Third record, following a pair of amazing 12” near-LPs, by this Columbus howitzer. On their debut, Flash Fuck (A Wicked Company, 2013), they were a trio, but they subsequently dropped a guitarist. By the time they cut Vernacular Splatter (Superdreamer, 2015), they has found their true shape as a duo. With Aurelie on drums and vox, and Chris Corbin on guitar, they had pared their shit down to a tight-packed near-perfect two-person howl. For Possession Sessions they have retained that format, although legendary producer Mike Rep, can’t keep from making his guitar a deep deep part of the mix. And by hooking their braying sonic mule… Read more »

Gary Wilson and the Blind Dates - Live At CBGB ()

LP with download. Black Vinyl Edition of 400. OUT OF PRINT! Red Vinyl Edition of 100. (Available at Feeding Tube Records store in Florence MASS) THE WIRE Recorded on a trip to the East Coast in August 1979, this album documents Gary Wilson’s semi-triumphant return to his home base. Raised in Endicott NY, Gary moved out to San Diego after recording a series of records that would eventually create his legend. We have been fortunate enough to reissue three of these albums: 1974’s Another Galaxy by the Gary Wilson Trio (FTR 232); 1977’s You Think You Really Know Me (FTR 124 & 236); and the 2003 comp Forgotten Lovers (FTR 065); as well as adding a newly discovered abstraction to the… Read more »

Nudge Squidfish - You Cant Have Aliens Without The Squid ()

LP Edition of 300 Nudge Squidfish is one of the singular figures to emerge from the Columbus sub-underground rock scene of the 1970s. He was a member of The True Believers (along with Mike Rep & Tommy Jay). He cut a single for the New Age label in ’82, and couple of odd solo LPs while he was living in Nashville later in the ’80s. He was a member of V-3 (along with Jim Shepard) after that. He also released a bonkers full-length cassette on Old Age that was subsequently vinylized by Columbus Discount. More recently, he has become a highly regarded disseminator of UFO videos (Google it). The music Nudge does is all over the place, and his new… Read more »

STEVE BACZKOWSKI / CHRIS CORSANO / PAUL FLAHERTY - The Dull Blade ()

LP Edition of 400. More than a decade since their first (and last) trio album, Dim Bulb, “Buffalo Steve,” Chris Corsano and Paul Flaherty are back on the attack. The three recorded as part of a larger ensemble on the Open Mouth LP, Wrong Number, but they have a certain way of creating focused trio dynamics that makes babies talk in tongues and old men drool. The line-up is a bit unorthodox — two saxes (one a goddamn baritone) and drums. You might almost be tempted to call the format European. But it’d be a canard to try and place this album in the Euro free music tradition. I mean, yeah, there is some massive outsider brawling here. Buckets of… Read more »

EEEE EEEEE - EEEE EEEEE ()

LP Edition of 300 There is a certain genius in curating and archiving if it’s done in the right way. Boston’s Phil Milstein is a master of this art. His projects recontextualizing “found” material are as inventive and original as anything you’ll run across. Another maestro of the form is Maine’s Skot Spear (aka id m theft able). We already vinylized one of the projects he uncovered, The Weeny Man LP (FTR 037). And now it’s time for another. Originally released by Skot in 2002 as a CDR on his own Maang-Disc label, EEEE EEEEE documents a cassette he found in the basement of a friend’s house late in the last century. The music is a solo set recorded by… Read more »

Gary Wilson & Tredici Bacci - Another Lonely Night In Brooklyn ( / )

CD Edition of 500 LP + CD  Edition of 500   Covers Printed by Neil Burke   LP Blue Vinyl Edition available at FT Store / WFMU Record Fair  THE WIRE Totally great live LP by Gary Wilson (the world’s forgotten boy) with a  cover photo makes him look like a dead ringer for the late Mike Kelley, back when Mike was a fake hippie. Anyway, Gary shouldn’t need much of an introduction. If you don’t know him, you might well access one of the many other LPs of his we’ve done. But then again, Another Lonely Night in Brooklyn might be just the place to start your own little wagon rolling down the road of Gary Wilson fandom. The… Read more »

Marcia Bassett & Samara Lubelski - Live NYC ()

LP  Edition of 400 THE WIRE This is the third LP to feature the exquisite improvising duo, Marcia Bassett and Samara Lubelski. And as great as the first two were (on Kye andGolden Lab, respectively), Live NYC is even better. It elegantly shows just how much brain damage you can do using only a guitar and a violin. The pair have deep deep routes in the East Coast sub-underground. Marcia’s solo projects and work with groups (Un, Double Leopards, Hototogisu, GHQ, Zaika, etc.) has been exploding minds since the mid ’90s. The same is true for Samara, except her history reaches even further back, with non-solo-aktion including bands like Tower Recordings, Hall of Fame, Chelsea Light Moving, Metabolismus, and too… Read more »

Alvaro - Live in Brussels ()

LP Edition of 200 / Numbered. LAST 20 copies LEFT! Although me, you and the guy-next-door all tend to think of Alvaro (The Chilean with the Singing Nose) as an avant garde artist by one measure or another, it is also true that he has a cunning way with pop melodicism and delivery. This has never been clearer than one the Live in Brussels LP. Recorded in October 2015 at Les Ateliers Claus, Alvaro is at peak form here. Playing piano (and a little nose flute), he sings through a great program of faves (“Valaparaiso,” “Mum’s Milk,” ‘”She’s So Pretty,” etc.) like the Bizzaro World cabaret star he has been since Drinkin My Own Sperm was released back in ’77….
