Bang! Bros. - Hard Rocks Vol.21 ()

LP Edition of 200. Digital Download Included. Unlike the last Bang! Bros. record we did (12/12/12, FTR170), this one’s frilly style was not dictated so much by a date as by time. According the jacket’s notations, it was recorded in less than an hour in October, 2016. What? You might cry. What kind of a goddamn record can be recorded in under an hour? We’d like to point out that such live classics as Metallic K.O and Mars Live at Artists Space were recorded inside those temporal parameters. Futhermore, we should point out that Bang! Bros. are a duo who live by the rules of real time interaction. They do not attempt to step in the same river twice. Theirs… Read more »

Jan Van Den Dobbelsteen - Kringloop / New Adventures ()

LP Edition of 200. Includes Digital Download. Release Date – July 13th, 2018 – Pre-Order Available Feeding Tube Records is proud to present the first U.S. LP by Dutch experimental artist Jan van den Dobbelsteen. Jan has been releasing music, non-music and kinda-music on his Cosmic Volume label since 1978. Often these works are connected to visual exhibits or installations, but they also work as standalone sound events.  We had been tracking Jan’s work for a good long while, but it was only after Phil Milstein told us he was friends of Jan and his partner, Danielle Lemaire, that our wheels began to spin. (They had sponsored Milstein’s show-and-tell song-poem trip to the Low Countries.) Introductions were made, and here… Read more »

Mazozma - Stark Joy

LP Edition of 200. Co-Release with Mystra Records Whats So Funny / In love music video  There is something very special about the sound of a bummed-out smart person alone in a room somewhere (studio or not) with just their guitar for solace. Many killer examples of the form exist — Skip Spence’s Oar, Pip Proud’s Adrenaline & Richard, Roy Montgomery’s 324 E. 13th Street #7, and so on. All of these records shine with very spevial darkness. To this list, I submit the new Mazozma LP,  Stark Joy. Kentucky ex-pat, Mike Turner has been using this recording handle for a while. We did one previous album with him, Heavy Death Head (FTR 268), and like most of his solo… Read more »

New Parents - Transient Response ()

LP Edition of 200. Debut album by this Turners Falls-based quartet led by Adam Langellotti of Sore Eros and widely hailed for his engineering work. The sound on Transient Response is languid ruralist prog-pop, with help from Gary War, Ma Turner, Shannon & Beverly Ketch, and other Valley travelers. New Parents can be pretty raw live, but the overall vibe here is smoother and distinctly out-of-time. Different segments remind me of everything from Fraser & DeBolt to Brinsley Schwarz to Great Plains and back again. Something about the way the production is layered gives the record a feel quite redolent of the early ’70s, but the more you play it, the clearer its contemporary origins become. Amongst the classic rock… Read more »

Eric Arn & Margaret Unknown - Paraza Corta ()

LP with Download Slip. Edition of 250. Release Date – July 27th – Pre-Order Available For his second Feeding Tube LP, following the superb solo outing Orphic Resonance (FTR281), Eric Arn has chosen to team up with the Austrian shapeshifter Margaret Unknown (aka Max Bogner), for a set of acoustic guitar duets. Eric’s history is well known via solo work, duets with Tom Carter, and hard psych playing from his pre-Vienna days with both Primordial Undermind and Crystalized Movements. We knew Margaret mostly for his work with (In) The Abyssity of the Grounds, who backed Linda Sharrock on her massive Gods 3LP set (which should be a fixture in every home). Recorded live at the mo.ë space in Vienna, Paranza… Read more »

Chris Corsano / Paul Flaherty - The Hated Music ()

2LP with Download Slip. Edition of 500. Cover art by Gary Panter Release Date – August 10th – Pre-Order Available. Hard to believe it has been 18 years since this set was first issued, but that’s what the calendar says. Paul and Chris had been playing together for a while before this. I seem to recall rehearsals outdoors in Hartford beneath stretches of raised highway under construction. But that may have been Chris and Pete Nolan, back when Pete played guitar. Who can remember exactly? It’s been a long time. But I do remember we put this set together because it seemed essential to document how amazing the communication was between these two musicians, from different generations, but tuned into… Read more »

Charles K. Noyes & Owen Maercks with Henry Kaiser and Greg Goodman - Free Mammals ()

LP Inserts / Download Slip. Edition of 500.Release Date – August 10th, 2018 – Pre-Order Available – Reissue of an exceptional album of improvisations, recorded when percussionist Charles K. Noyes was lured to the Bay Area in the summer of 1979 by Henry Kaiser. Noyes and Maercks had played regularly as a duo when Owen was still based in Worcester, MA. But he’d shifted his ass westward in the wake of the Teenage Sex Therapist session (FTR 153), which had been organized by Kaiser following their collaborations in the band, Monster Island. Half of the album was recorded live at Woody Woodman’s Finger Palace, with Kaiser on guitar and Greg Goodman on piano. The web of cluttered notes and interwoven… Read more »

Stefan Neville & Greg Malcolm - A Nuance ()

LP Edition of 250. Download Slip Included. Release Date – July 27th, 2018  – Pre-Order Available – Stefan Neville is one of the busier beavers on the North island of New Zealand. Recording under his own name, as Pumice (or a variety of other soubriquets), running the Stabbies & the Rockets label, drumming for the Coolies and so on, he keeps his tail moving quickly so that it does not grow moss. Greg Malcolm is one of New Zealand’s premier avant garde string-benders. He did a bit of band aktion with Jay Clarkson in Breathing Cage, but has mostly hewed to stranger improv-based roads. He plays oddly crafted guitar-like instruments of all manners, and has lots of great solo recordings… Read more »

Dial - Noise Opera ()

LP Edition of 250. Download Slip Included. Release Date – August 10th, 2018 – Pre-Order Available – We were first attuned to Dial by Bill Nace back in the early days of this century. He’d been sent over the moon by the incredible squall of the unit, a trio led by former UT-guitarist Jacqui Ham. We were so blown away by the re-emergence of Jacqui, we didn’t even try to figure out who the other players were. But it turns out the other two dudes were Rob Smith, a most immaculate manipulator of drum dials and guitar feedback, and synth-pillager/bassist Dominic Weeks, who’d been in the most insane Rough Trade band of all times — Furious Pig. This was news… Read more »
