    TEMPLE

    Temple

    [engl] Continuing with our reissue campaign of the Toby Robinson’s Pyramid label catalogue, now it’s the time for Temple. Probably the most "rock" sounding of all the Pyramyd titles, Temple were an ad–hoc outfit born out of several late night sessions at Dierks Studios (where Toby was working at that time), involving local friends of Toby and other musicians from adjoining studios, among them Zeus B. Held (Birth Control). Temple played a kind of heavy, dark psychedelic krautrock with ahead of its time proto–Goth vibe. Loud guitars, Hammond, Mini–Moog, Mellotron, distorted & echoing vocals, effects... RIYL: AMON DÜÜL II, HAWKWIND, BIRTH CONTROL, POPOL VUH, ASH RA TEMPEL, EMTIDI... *24–bit remaster from the original tapes.

    THOMAS EDISUN'S ELECTRIC LIGHT BULB BAND

    The Red Day Album

    [engl] One of the most exciting finds of the recent years is this previously unreleased album from 1967 by this obscure US psychedelic band, recorded around the same time of their ultra- rare 'Common Attitude' 45, (famous for appearing on the ''Alien, Psychos & Wild Things'' comp). Leaded by the great Richard Orange, Thomas Edisun played Beatlesque, psychedelic- pop / proto power- pop of the highest order with amazing songs and incredible harmony vocals. In 1967, just after 'Sgt. Pepper' had came out, the band decided to register their own psychedelic masterpiece, so they entered a rudimentary studio and recorded a whole album during a weekend, under the influence of ''smoking'' and ''mind altering'' substances . The album was never released, the tapes were stored in attics and basements and the band broke up with some of their members forming cult power- pop band Zuider Zee.

    THUNDERTREE

    Thundertree

    [engl] Coming from the same Minneapolis 60s scene which spawned bands like The Litter, Thundertree evolved from garage band The Good Idea. In 1970 they released their sole album for the Roulette label: a perfect example of the transition from psychedelia to hard- rock and early progressive sounds. Killer fuzzed out guitar, organ, powerful vocals?Including hard- psych classics like ?In the morning? or ?Room at the top of the stairs? along with the monstruous 17 minute long ?2025? suite. For this, the first ever legit vinyl reissue of Thundertree, we?ve included two previously unreleased tracks: ?Pepper Palace? (a great psychedelic number) plus a storming cover of ?Sixteen Tons?, which was the signature song on Thundertrees live shows. Both tracks were recorded at UA Studios, Minneapolis, in 1970.

    TRUCK

    Surprise, surprise

    [engl] Limited reissue of the sole album by this mysterious early 70s band from Malaysia. It was featured in the last Hans Pokora ''Collector Dreams'' book, causing a big stir in the psych collecting circles, as original copies are nowhere to be found. This is a real popsike gem with ultra melodic & catchy english beatlesque vocals, totally UK Psych late sixties atmosphere featuring awesome songwriting, great studio arrangements, moody orchestrations, fuzz and wah- wah guitar and great use of electric piano, keyboards & weird analog synth- Moog which gives the album a wonderful unique vibe.

    TYLL

    Sexphonie

    [engl] Originally released in 1975, "Sexphonie" offers a mix of acid–rock, hard–psych, polit–rock and progressive / folky sounds with some eastern influences. Great studio production and outstanding guitar playing courtesy of Teflon Fonfara (who once blew up Camel’s PA system with his tape and delay guitar effects!). Tyll was formed when Teflon was approached by Kerston Records with the intention of releasing a krautrock album. Teflon’s previous group, Tyll Eulenspygel, was not active at that moment, so he assembled a new studio band featuring members and friends of Tyll Eulenspygel. Shrouded in mystery until now, Tyll’s "Sexphonie" is a Krautrock curiosity that almost never happened, and it was all created within a matter of weeks from inception of the band through to finished LP. The story is similar to that of the legendary Mammut, with an ad hoc band brought together and given total freedom to do whatever they wanted. Tyll can be seen as the illegitimate step–sister to Eulenspygel, and there was much controversy and even legal action involved and some rivalry between the two bands, especially as Tyll had poached Eulenspygel drummer Günter Klinger. Yet, whereas Eulenspygel had pretty much now lost the plot by 1973, Tyll’s sole LP was one of those surprisingly creative gems of the mid 1970s that, to the few that knew it, was a welcome breath of fresh air.

    TYRNAROUND

    Colour Your Mind

    [engl] Trippy '60s-styled psychedelia from Australia! Originally issued as a 12” mini-album in 1986, Tyrnaround's 'Colour Your Mind' has become a touchstone of 1980s Neo-Psychedelia and almost certainly one of the best records of the second psychedelic era. Influenced by classic '60s British Psychedelia it was also inspired by The Dukes of Stratosphear's ‘25-O-Clock’ and perhaps exceeds that record's trip factor with the acid infused title track (featured on Amorphous Androgynous ‘Wizards of Oz’ Compilation and also famously covered by Vibravoid) blending searing acid fuzz guitar, swirling keyboards, surreal lyrics and sumptuous early Floyd like harmonies. Now expanded to a full length LP, including all the bands singles as well as the rare Freakbeat Magazine 45 'Paragon-Smythe' (featuring the never released before unedited version), this could be seen as Tyrnaround's perfect debut album.

    UTHER PENDRAGON

    San Francisco Earthquake

    [engl] This is the incredible story of Uther Pendragon: a lost psychedelic band from San Francisco whose music has remained buried until now. Formed in the Bay Area in 1966 as a teen garage group called Blue Fever, Uther Pendragon lasted from 1966 until 1978. During that time, the band went through different names and phases, as their music evolved from garage to psychedelia to hard-rock: they were known as Blue Fever, Timne, Hodological Mandala, Mandala, Kodiac, Justus, Pendragon…but the core of the band remained always the same: Mark Lightcap (rhythm guitar, vocals), Bruce Marelich (lead guitar, vocals) and Martin Espinosa (bass, vocals) who after finding their ultimate drummer on Mike Beers, finally settled on the Uther Pendragon name in the early 70s. But despite being in active for all that time and recording lot of tapes and demos at different studios (including their own one in Palo Alto), Uther Pendragon never released any recording at the time. They’re not even a footnote on the books about the San Francisco Sound or a small name at those psychedelic posters of the time. Nothing. It’s as if they never existed. Until now. Their complex and fascinating story, which involves winning a Bay Area Battle Of The Bands and playing with Country Joe & The Fish, recording a killer garage-psych 7” acetate in 1967, going to the legendary Pacific Sound Recording studios in 1969 to record a demo, living as a family in the same house for many years and rehearsing 7 days a week, building their own recording studio and music corporation, being managed by Craig Pedersen (Something Wild, Tripsichord Music Box), being involved in an occult-themed rock opera called Sabbat, and much more, is being told with all details by Mike Stax from Ugly Things in the extensive liner notes.Culled from the band’s vast archive of tapes, “San Francisco Earthquake” includes their unknown until now 7” acetate from 1967 (fab garage-psych in the vein of Human Expression or Music Machine); never released ’66-‘69 tracks including a groundbreaking, moody psycher from 1966; a prev. unreleased demo tape from 1969 recorded at Pacific Recording - an incredible document for any lover of early SF garage-psych (think Oxford Circle, Savage Resurrection, Moby Grape…) and many tracks recorded at their home studio in Palo Alto. We’re talking 100% unadulterated West Coast guitar psych and hard-rock which recall QMS and even Kurihara-era White Heaven.

    Cologne Curiosities - 'Unknown Deutschland - The Krautrock Archive 1972-1976'

    [engl] 'Cologne Curiosities' collects, for the first time on vinyl, all the otherwise unpublished/un-reissued material that firstly appeared on the three "Unknown Deutschland - The Krautrock Archive" CDs released on Virgin during 1996. These CD only releases were originally compiled by Trevor Manwaring (Paratactile, Impetus, Virgin, Harmonia Mundi) from tapes supplied to him by Toby Robinson. Toby - aka The Mad Twiddler, aka Genius P. Orridge - is well-known to Krautrock collectors as one of a number of engineers working at Stockhausen’s WDR and Dierks Studio in Cologne in the mid-1970's, where he assisted on recordings by many famous Kraut bands such as Can, Birth Control, Mythos or Dzyan. The recordings included here were made between 1972 and 1976 using studios in and around Cologne, produced by Toby Robinson for his own amusement, just having fun on the studio. Bands would come in for practice sessions, to record demo's, and during slack periods impromptu jams would happen. Most of these sessions were recorded by Toby, and they feature Toby himself plus a revolving cast of friends and musicians (some of them apparently big Kraut names under pseudonym). Including lost-in-time bands / studio projects like Astral Army, Fuerrote, Spirulina and Baal among others, the music here ranges from killer proto-New Wave Kraut psych to wild space rock, proto-ambient electronic, dark psychedelia and raw Kosmische sounds with lot of analog synths / Moog. It was during that time in Cologne, that Toby, along with Fluxus artist Robin Page, gave birth to the mysterious and controversial Pyramid label, for which these tracks were originally made for.

    Pyramid Edits

    [engl] Pyramid was an underground / homemade label created by Toby Robinson and his friend Robin Page (the Fluxus artist) while they were living in Cologne, Germany, in the ’70s. Toby – aka The Mad Twiddler, aka Genius P. Orridge – is well–known to Krautrock collectors as one of a number of engineers working at Stockhausen’s WDR and Dierks Studio in Cologne in the mid–1970’s, where he assisted on recordings by many famous Kraut bands such as Can, Birth Control, Mythos or Dzyan. Pyramid was home to a series of fascinating homemade albums by impossible and lost–in–time kraut–kosmische bands like Cozmic Corridors, Golem, Nazgul...all of them reissued by Mental Experience in the last years. One of the most celebrated tracks from the Pyramid catalogue is "Interstellar Shortwave" by The Astral Army, originally included on the "Cologne Curiosities" comp. It’s a heavy–disco–kraut–groove, DJ friendly, Hawkwind–inspired track recorded circa mid–70s, and it’s presented here in its original version – pressed at 45rpm for maximum and expanding sound quality – and also as an edit by Gareth Goddard aka Cherrystones, who also offers another edit of "The Dead Marshes", one of the tracks included on The Nazgul album. Here, Cherrystones transforms the spooky, avant–garde sound of the track into a kind of cinematic, horror Spaghetti Western soundtrack. To round up the 12", there’s an experimental Cherrystones rework of "Daruber", a dark ambient / kosmische classic by Cozmic Corridors. *300 copies pressing, includes digital download card.

    VAMPIRES, THE

    Vampires Underground

    [engl] Where does a band of Indian guys in East South Africa even play, and how on earth would they end up with fuzzy guitar riffs, wah- wah and funky drums? Riddles abound when you discover a platter like this one. Durban, famous for its beaches and also for beach signs that marked off areas for white people, had a very unique dance band scene in 1971. The Vampires are a strange footnote in a strange world, and they slosh through each song like they're having the time of their lives. The mostly instrumental band covers everything from a soundtrack that prefigures the drama of Ennio Morricone fuzz, to middle of the road Nashville country, to Zeppelin, with flute, organ and fuzz guitar high in the mix.

    VESCOLI, TONI

    Information

    [engl] In 1970, when Swiss garage- beat band Les Sauterelles split, their leader, Toni Vescoli, decided to start a solo career. At first, inspired by Dylan, he thought of going strictly acoustic, but he soon changed his mind and, influenced by bands like King Crimson and Pink Floyd, he started incorporating psychedelic & electric elements to his sound: feedback, primitive drum machines, guitars and vocals filtered through Leslie speakers etc. He also incorporated to his repertoire some of the songs he had written for the never recorded Sauterelles concept album, Seven Deadly Sins. In 1971, Toni released his debut solo album, ?Information?. A folk- rock / psychedelic gem which reflected his influences at the time: folk, rock, psychedelia, progressive- rock?From fragile acoustic numbers to dark, wigged- out psychedelic tracks, this is highly recommended to anyone into ?CQ? era Outsiders or Frank Nuyens ?Rainman? album.

    WEEED

    Do You Fall ?

    [engl] WEEED is an American biocosmic rock n roll band from Portland, Oregon, formed in 2009. The band consists of Gabriel Seaver (guitar, bass, vocals, keyboards), Mitchy Fosnaugh (guitar, vocals, flute), John Goodhue (drums), Evan Franz (drums), and Ian Hartley (percussion). They are known for their cathartic, rhythm heavy live shows and for blending progressive compositions with improvisation and trance. Do You Fall? will be their seventh full length release. Music trance, letting go, relinquishment, releasing, catharsis... these themes are represented in the title. Falling can be seen as a foundational experience of being human and learning to walk on this Earth. It is associated with grief and loss, as well as new love. This theme of falling is deeply tied to the context in which this music came to be. Sometimes songs may serve as the catalyst and the medicine for emotional transformation.

This is the debut from White Canyon & The 5th Dimension! White Canyon & The 5th Dimension has ripping guitar leads, experimental drones, garage rock and a lo-fi approach which creates a spectacular album. The guitars are a highlight with their vibrato tones that call back to the Velvet Underground at other times they are blowing out fuzz and echo to blast craters in the Moon. The vocals are dripping in reverb and always add to the melodic arc of the songs and are a bit catchy at times. The use of drone instrumental like the tanpura and reverse echo is classic psychedelia and very well done. White Canyon & The 5th Dimension is from S?o Tomé das letras in Brazil. The album has diverse musical styling that connect with the psychedelic movement of our current times. Shoegaze dreams collide with garage rock, space rock and desert rock. Only 250 copies.

    WILD HAVANA

    Wild Havana

    [engl] Obscure Dutch private pressing from 1977. Laid–back instrumental psychedelic / progressive sounds with jazz–funk–groove and abstract / experimental / Latin–indigenous touches. Stoned homemade atmosphere with treated / distorted electric & acoustic guitars, flute, electric piano, primitive drum machines / homemade electronics...Much in the vein of the experimental–underground scene of France & Germany during the early 70s but actually recorded and released in Holland. Wild Havana was the project of guitar player Johan Smith, helped by his brother Cor on flute. Influenced by artists like Zappa and Herbie Hancock, Johan recorded the "Wild Havana" album at his home studio on a 4–track, using effect devices developed by himself, like a modified proto–drum machine taken from a Hammond organ. He also used effects like phase shifter, chorus, etc and experimented with putting wool on the guitar strings and electric effects on the mandolin. The result sounded like nothing else at the time. Buried for many years, we’re excited to bring to life this unique album. RIYL: HERBIE HANCOCK, RICHARD PINHAS, CHRISTIAN BOULE, OREXIS... *Insert with liner notes by band member Johan Smit.
