Really glad to announce the new vinyl by our beloved DAN MELCHIOR 
"ALL AT SEA" (LP). 

We have been following him since the beginning with the Broken Revue, the collaboration with Billy Childish and the amazing project Dan Melchior und Das Menace. We are amazed by his own original and personal evolution from (let's say) "orthodox" garage punk songwriter (and what a songwriter! Someone said one of the best in the US, but remember, he is british) to avant rock, experimental folk / blues and weird sounds

The stuff he played changed with him, slowly affected by electronic music, Krautrock (like Can and Faust), avantgarde, concrete music... as well as a couple of the best Franco Battiatio's works (Fetus and Pollution). 

ALL AT SEA consists of all these elements together: Dan wrote and builded great songs never loosing his upset melodic streak BUT breaking down and decomposing the refrain, stretching and forcing the normal structure of a song, filling it with avant-soultions and experiments: ALL AT SEA is the result. 

10 songs able to keep you there - tied up - for 40 mins - in the dark

HEROIN IN TAHITI - Canicola (Cassette)

HEROIN IN TAHITI
Canicola
NO035

C38 - Black Cassette
Cover printed on Risograph
Edition of 100 copies

Release date: 10th Jule 2014

listen HERE a track


°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°



Raw experiment in "neorealist psychedelia” by spaghetti-wasters Heroin In Tahiti from Rome, "Canicola" is dedicated to the sun, the obsessive superstitions and the golden yellow grain of Italy as portrayed by anthropologist Ernesto De Martino in legendary essays such as “South and Magic” and “The Land of Remorse”. 
Side A is a long, hallucinatory track which evokes the tyrannic heath and the mourning chants of a Mediterranean summer among ruins, olive trees and abandoned churches. Side B is composed by five short tracks which heavily rely on Italian folklore and include samples of Alan Lomax and Diego Carpitella's field recordings in Southern Italy during the 50s. 
A cassette-only release, "Canicola" makes you SWEAT. One of the most intriguing and freaked out things Heroin In Tahiti made so far: for fans of Sun City Girls, Italian Occult Psychedelia, Savage Republic... and Heroin In Tahiti, of course.

CADEO - Gran Galà (Cassette)


CADEO
Gran Galà
NO025

edition of 100 copies
cassette C20 + 'zine
Green Fluo Cassette

Release Date: 24th June 2014

listen HERE an extract

°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°


Visions from the past come over a wave of synthetizers and video-feedbacks: characters of the italian '80s television take back voice and presence, sound and image, striking against our virtual analog present World. A "celebration" of the dawn of the italian commercial television, through the use of its synthetic sounds/effects and its involuntary hypnotic potential.
CADEO hides 2 main figures of the roman scene: obscure characters, members of other projects such as System Hardware Abnormal, Hiroshima Rocks Around, Maximillian I, Micropupazzo on one hand and Polysick or TheAwayTeam on the other. Just a great combo!
Since CADEO is basically an audio/video project, sounds strictly connected with images, we print an old fashioned GREEN FLUO Cassette inserted into a 12 pages 'zine
limited to 100copies.
Be fast!

Listen HERE to one song

°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°

This EP is a step forward in Father Murphy's downward spiral.
It demands You to follow Father Murphy in his failing. In his fall.

This little EP is about Failure.
Failing is the only way for Father Murphy to proceed on his Path.
Failing means to stumble, fall, and start again, but in a different way.
Loops box people in one place forever, nurtured and stucked, where they won't suffer but where they won't grow.
Failure instead of  Loops.
Father Murphy did not go for the Loop, he chose to Fail.
To fall, to suffer, to start over without being stuck.

This EP demands dedication.
The 4 movements are 4 movements but are also two pair of movements.
It is either #1,#2,#3 or #4
or it is #1 and #3 together or #2 and #4 together.
Each movement is a Father Murphy attempt to do things another way.
Each movement is similar but different.

This little EP contains two one-sided tapes.
Father Murphy demands You to play the two tapes simultaneously.
You choose. Never forget You have a choice.
It is only by listening to all the layers together that you will sonically and ideally reach how Failure sounds to Father Murphy.
Like a repetition, in different forms.
You won't be looking for a closure. You can only try to make things different.


-         Let the Wrong Rise with You
-         Bones Got Dry*
_______________________

-         They Will All Fail You
-         Despite All the Grief

Recorded by King Davide Cristiani at Bombanella Soundscape, January – April 2013, except chorale in "They will all Fail You" recorded by Fabio La Rocca at Itri's Medieval Castle, December 2012.
Mixed and mastered by Greg Saunier.

All songs and lyrics by F. Zanatta, unless otherwise noted.
* Lyrics by V. Ngo & F. Zanatta.

Visions and visitations through Ol' Fisherman Ngo.

Father Murphy recites his words in “What about failure?” from cut up sentences by William S. Burroughs, Saint Anselm of Canterbury, J.G. Ballard and our dear Vinh Ngo.


Father Murphy (is): Rev. freddie Murphy, Chiara Lee.
Vicar Vittorio Demarin, after recording the EP, decided it was time to let the only Rev. freddie and C.Lee proceed on this journey. After baptizing them and following the same Path for many years, he understood it was time for them to go for the Cross, where the Cross is the intersection of two axis. He did let go knowing they were going to be again three only as Rev. (1), C.Lee (2) and Rev+C.Lee(The Cross=3). Godspeed You Vicar, You go straight as an arrow, our dear friend.

Ezra Buchla (vocals on "They will all Fail You"), Gianni Giublena Rosacroce (clarinet on "Let the Wrong rise with You"), Daniel Schleifer (tuba on "Let the Wrong rise with You") and Michael Jeffries (sax on "Let the Wrong rise with You") joined  Father Murphy on this journey.

This EP is released on vinyl by Aagoo Records and Boring Machines 

Father Murphy is proudly part of Madcap Collective.

°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°

Gianni Giublena Rosacroce keeps on sending us "sound postcards" from his travels through deserts and colorful oasis. After the last tape released, "La Mia Africa", GGR  comes back with new tales of far unexplored territories: ipnotic percussions, dreamy horns, powerful imaginative sounds wich leads our mind back to a 70s' Mondo Moviessoundtrack shooted somewhere in the north of Africa. 
In this new travel GGR is not alone anymore, the bewitching Maria Violenza goes along with him. Born and grew up in Sicily, she let spread out all the influences of the different cultures that her island has seen living (and
struggling) side by side for centuries. What we find here are arabian rythms, sonorities wich recall spanish and morocco'sensations wich collide with a forceful synth wave evil touch, a cold blow!
This split is a travel in oniric territories with two sage guides beside. 
Just play it and lay yourself in their hands ... to somewhere else...

RAINBOW ISLAND - Road To Mirapuri 
Cassette Tape

SIDE A - Rainbow Road
SIDE B - Mirapuri Lagoon

RAINBOW ISLAND are back with new recordings after their great debut album (RNBW - LP), out one year ago on Flying Kids Records.
This four piece band keeps on exploring dreamy and  solitary colourful islands which probably exist exclusively in their twisted minds.
Listening to this album we are driven through psychedelic roads made of oscillators and arpeggiators, heading towards this magic world called Mirapuri.
This land is erected with drones, synths and electronic percussions; an intangible voice rises to tell visitors Mirapuri's primitive stories and  ritual liturgies, and sometimes it just screams against shadows in the forest.
At the end of the Road, you start to glimpse the Lagoon, while walking on a bridge assembled with psych loops. This is  the place where the Rainbow ends and maybe... who knows... we'll find also the pot of gold! And if not... damn, it has been a wild-eyed wander at any rate !
RAINBOW ISLAND sounds like some Black Dice were fighting against italian 70s synth-progressive or could sound like kinda of bongo-loid Fuck Buttons were playing in a jungle.
And it's all in a really nice cassette with a cover printed on Risograph, limited to 100 copies. what's more?
