MORDISQUITOS EN MI OMBLIGO

ARITOMO - EL ALA DE MI HOMUNCULO (LP/HAKANAIRO)

The 2017 album by Japanese folk musician Aritomo. His music hardly resembles any other folk music, but rather is a sort of experimental progressive folk rock. The LP comes in a special shaped hand-made cover with three inserts.

A BOLHA - UM PASSO A FRENTE (LION EDITION) (LP/GROOVIE/LION)

This edition (co-produced with Groovie Records) comes in a deluxe tip-on jacket and includes an insert with band history, photos and comments on the songs by Renato Ladeiro, the Brazilian psych band's leader.

STEVENS, MICK - SWEET DREAMS (LP/BRANCO)

This album features previously unreleased material by '70s psychedelic folk singer-songwriter Mick Stevens, who's best known for his 1972 album 'See The Morning'. The songs were home-recorded between 1972 and 1978. This reissue comes in a hand-made gold coloured sleeve and includes a booklet.

ERLKOENIG - ERLKOENIG (LP/LONGHAIR)

On vinyl, here's a reissue of Erlkoenig's self-titled eponymous album, originally published as a private pressing in 1973. The recordings are remastered and the album comes with an informative insert and rare photos. Musically, Erlkoenig played classically influenced symphonic rock with hints of krautrock and small reminiscences of the beat-era. The music is dominated by the unique sound qualities of the keyboards played by Eckhard Freynik, who was the group's musical mastermind and leader.

VARIOUS - BROWN ACID: THE FIFTH TRIP (BLACK) (LP/RIDING EASY)

'HEAVY ROCK FROM THE UNDERGROUND COMEDOWN' - For the fifth lysergic journey, Riding Easy Records has assembled 10 heavy slabs of obscure rock the likes of which have never been seen before... not in this form anyhow.

George Brigman & Split - Blowin' Smoke (1977) 3. Finch - Nothing In The Sun (1968) 4. Clockwork - Cybernaut (1974) 5. Fargo - Abaddon (1969) 6. Mammoth - Mammoth (1970) 7.

Here we get five tracks featuring Pete alongside Marc Swordfish (Astralasia), Colin Consterdine (ex-Zion Train, Sendelica), Lee Relfe (Sendelica), Virginia Tate, Lindsay Smith and Lisa Button. Edition of 150 copies on BLACK VINYL.

IASCOPE - SERPENTINE CIRCLES (LP/NASONI)

'Serpentine Circles' is the debut-album of The Iascope, a band from Frankfurt, Germany. Conceptualized as a progressive rock-album from the early '70s, the album combines several influences, including the floating soundscapes of Pink Floyd and the heavy blues-riffs of Black Sabbath. This edition is limited to 300 copies on coloured vinyl, including an insert.

NEXUS - EN EL COMIENZO DEL TOPOS URANOS (LP/LION PRODUCTION)

Nexus is a progressive rock band from Argentina. Though founded back in the late 1970s, the group didn't release its first album until 1999. On this 2017 full-length, featuring the original members, Nexus delves deep into the world of cinematographic sounds, using heavy and dynamic keyboards (including Hammond), elaborate guitar work and powerful bass and drums. And its all analogue to enhance the 1970s flavour. "If you like ELP influenced prog served up to you hot and heavy there is an hours worth of intense pleasure here. Highly recommended." ~Ken Golden/Laser's Edge. Limited to 300 copies.

SCREAM OF THE BUTTERFLY - IGNITION (BLACK) (LP/BURNING WAX)

The debut-album by Berlin-based band Scream Of The Butterfly. Powerful guitar riffs, a tight rhythm section and versatile melodies, topped with a portion of vintage Hammond organ, will please the fans of classic '70s rock, grunge and contemporary rock. The eight songs were recorded by Kadavar sound-engineer Richard Behrens. Edition on BLACK VINYL.

STROBE - BUNKER SESSIONS (LP/SULATRON)

Wow! Here's a full-length platter of previously unreleased recordings from British '90s psych-/space-rock giants Strobe! The material on this album was recorded in 1994, live and without overdubs, during one session at the Bunker Studios in Bedford. This material may very well represent the band's real sound than any of the five official studio albums or three EP's. This is a limited edition of 500 copies on BLUE WAX.

ZONE SIX - ZONE SIX (LP/SULATRON)

The version of Zone Six's debut-album without vocals, which so far was never properly released (only on a few self-released tapes in 1997), is now reissued by Sulatron Records for the band's 20th anniversary. On offer is a wild mixture of psychedelic rock, electronica and dub, so it's no wonder that those tapes -back in the day- received positive reviews from the few music critics lucky enough to get a copy. This edition is limited to 500 copies on green vinyl.

DEAD-END ALLEY BAND - STORMS (CD/NECIO)

The third album by the Peruvian rockers once again combines mind-frying psychedelia, heavy blues rock and stoner atmospheres. 'Storms' is an impressive delivery!

IAH - IAH (CD/NECIO)

IAH is an instrumental stoner/psych rock band from Argentina that creates heavy spaced-out sounds. Though the sound reveals eleemnts of Karma To Burn, Colour Haze and some other influential instrumental rock bands, IAH brings its own sounds to the table, Expect four heavy tracks that drift between blissful post-rock to heavier stoner metal riffs, with an underlying amount of fuzz waiting to be heard.

KNEI - JUVENTUD DE LA GRAN CIUDAD (CD/NECIO)

The second album by Knei from La Pampa, Argentina, a band influenced by '70s rock'n'roll, psychedelia and progressive rock. With this album the group celebrates its 10-year existence.

Edition on PALE BLUE VINYL.

CHEMISTRY SET - (COL 2) LOVELY CUP OF TEA (7"/FRUITS DE MER)

Edition on SURPRISE COLOURED VINYL!

ADIEU GARY COOPER - OUTSIDERS (2LP) (LP/CASBAH)

The second album by a Genevan quartet that plays country-blues with a psychedelic touch. All lyrics are in French and totally uncompromising. Folk guitars vs distorted guitars, hovering lap steel and fine backing vocals, they all brings to mind country music heroes of the past as well as the messy riffs of The Black Lips.

GREEN YETI - DESERT SHOW (LP/CURSED TONGUE)

A very limited release of 700 copies on TRANSPARENT GREEN VINYL. Only few available, so first come, first serve. Green Yeti is a powerful Greek trio from Athens with a style that may bring to mind bands s.a. Purple Dino, Craang, 1000mods, Dope Flood, Void Droid or Naxatras. Much like Conan, High On Fire, OM, Colour Haze and My Sleeping Karma, these guys merge doom, sludge and stoner with touches of psychedelia and krautrock.

HOTEL WRECKING CITY TRADERS - PASSAGE TO AGARTHA (2LP) (LP/EVIL HOODOO)

Thundering walls of guitars and tonal ferocity meet acid-soaked hypno-drones and riff after crushing riff on this album by the Melbourne-based spacerock band. This double-album is comprised of six mammoth tracks, further pushing the sonic boundaries of previous releases with added instrumentation. Expansive riffs, cosmic repeato-drone, driving motorik beats, gargantuan slow burning waves of fuzz and mountains of rich tone, these form the 'Passage To Agartha'.

LEATHER LUNG - LOST IN TEMPTATION (LP/POISONED MIND)

Limited edition of 170 copies on split black and pink vinyl. Leather Lung plays a brand of stoner metal that is raw, buzzing and head caving. Each and every one of the seven songs on this release offers a fuzz-fueled and smoke-filled listen that just doesn't want to vacate your mind after you heard it. The LP includes a download card.

MT. MOUNTAIN - MT. MOUNTAIN EP (LP/CARDINAL FUZZ)

This repress of 350 copies is for the first time available outside of Australia. On this 6-track/28-minute EP (originally self released in 2014) Mt. Mountain plays lysergic shimmering psychedelic music that goes from lilting melodies into full blown meltdowns.

MT. MOUNTAIN - OMED (LP/CARDINAL FUZZ)

Back in 2013 'OMED' was the first release from Mt. Mountain, which up until now was only available via digital download. At last available on vinyl, 'OMED' comprises four tracks that span more than 28 minutes. The Perth-based group's music is characterized by a slow pace, an almos meditational mood and a pulsating rhythm. This is utterly entrancing psych rock!

HONEY POT - ASCENDING SCALES (3CD) (CD/FRUITS DE MER)

This TRIPLE-CD collection, featuring a host of notable guests, combines The Honey Pot's originals and covers of tracks from the '60s and '70s made famous by a.o.

SIX FT HICK - CANETRASH (LP/BEAST)

Following four albums and a slew of EP's and 7-inches, the swamp rockers from Brisbane released their album 'Canetrash' on CD in 2006. This delightful offering of amphetamine addled swamp, Bukowski-battered odes to ruined marriages and the delights of high-balling through red light districts in whatever shitty town, is now pressed on vinyl for the first time. This LP-edition is limited to 500 copies, so grab one before it's too late!

TOXICS - THE TOXICS (LP/BEAST)

On vinyl, here's the first album by Finland's sensational garage-rock merchants The Toxics. This is a genuinely stylish package of catchy tunes and raw power, recorded with a heavy dose of '60s affection/obsession. The album was mastered by Tim Warren of Crypt Records.

ON AND ONS - WELCOME ABOARD (CD/CITADEL)

'Welcome Aboard', the second album by these Australian garage rock/powerpoppers, is produced by band members Glenn and Clyde and mixed once again by Dennis Wilson of early '70s Australian band Khavas Jute. The album features 13 songs that follow and expand upon the guitar-driven sound of the previous disc with vocal harmonies abounding. The band is aided and abetted by a number of guests including Richard Lane (ex-Stems) on organ, and Murray Cook (ex-The Wiggles) on Fender 12-string.

VOLCANICS - OH CRASH (CD/CITADEL)

No hype, just stripped down rock'n'roll at its best, Perth's Volcanics are back with their fourth studio album. 'Oh Crash', like its predecessors 'Get A Move' and 'Transmission', is produced by Radio Birdman's Rob Younger. Inspired by local Perth acts The Scientists and The Victims, the band also pays homage to The Stooges and MC5. Regardless, their sound is their own brand of raw and explosive rock, now notably bolstered by the fact the band has become a five-piece due to the addition of a second guitarist.

VARIOUS - COOLSVILLE, VOL. 1 (10") (10"/STAG-O-LEE)

The first of two 10-inches called 'Coolsville', compiled by Stay Sick!, a gruesome twosome of deejays from the nightclubs of Brighton, UK. This is a far-out selection of moody Las Vegas Grind surfstrumentals and oddball beatnik recordings from the '50s and '60s. The first side of this platter is full of mean instros for wild cats of the urban jungle. On the flipside, brother, do we have some solid gone finger clickers for you to swing and sway to. Yep, these are bongo-laden beats that you'll dig the most, daddio. MOODY SIDE: 1. Ritchie & The Squires - Beat Party Pt.2 2. The Champs - Beatnik 3. Creed Taylor Orch. - The Nervous Beat 4.

VARIOUS - SICKSVILLE, VOL. 1 (10") (10"/STAG-O-LEE)

The first of two 10-inches called 'Sicksville', compiled by Stay Sick!, a gruesome twosome of deejays from the nightclubs of Brighton, UK. Both 10-inches are greasy battered platters of wax, with honkin' saxes and hammond organs blasting outta the speakers like there's no tomorrow. Hit the go-go cage for some tittyshakers to whip, whop, wobble and grind to. SLEAZE SIDE: 1. Phil Campos - Street Fight 2. Sandy Nelson - Big Noise From The Jungle 3.

VARIOUS - BUZZSAW JOINT CUT 3: PAVINYL (LP/STAG-O-LEE)

'Buzzsaw Joint' was born of a club offering Londoners the chance to revel in the sounds of good ol' trashy rock'n'roll in all its vintage vinyl forms. Cut number three comes from Pavinyl, a gent whose ride is a decked-out disco-hearse that, in his words, "puts the fun back into funerals". Vowing to "keep music evil", his club night 'Mockers' has had the British market town of Stroud dancing for a decade. Here Pavinyl shares 18 exotic pearls, from the jungle to the orient, ancient Egypt to Native America. Hold on tight, it's quite a trip! SIDE 1: 1. Phil Campos - Street Fight (Impact, 1960) 2. Glenn & Christy - Wombat Twist (Sonic, 1962) 3. Hi-Fives - Fujikami The Warrior (Hitt, 1961) 4. The Space Men - Martian Chant (Campus, 1959) 5. D.C. Washington - The Mohawk (Felsted, 1962) 6.

CLUB PARADISO - PANORAMICA EP (12"/MONDO GROOVE)

This Italo-duo, hailing from Rimini on the Adriatic Coast, brings forth the golden age of the spanking Riviera club culture. Travelling through time and space with synths and drum machines, the duo mixes the past(a) and the future. 'Panoramica' is an über-cool EP that is both club and disco friendly.

K.BYTES - I ADORE COMMODORE (LP/MONDO GROOVE)

'COMPUTER MUSIC FLASH' - Inspired by the videogames of the time, this album was produced by Marcello Giombini one year after 1982's 'Computer Disco'. Having been given titles that were inspired by the names of famous games, the ten tracks were created with four up to eleven Commodore 64's, programmed and synchronized with external audio interface.

'B' GIRLS - BAD NOT EVIL (LP/BOMP!)

Limited edition on PINK VINYL. 'BAD NOT EVIL' is The B Girls' first full-length vinyl release.

Peter J. Moore restored and digitally re-mastered all of the tracks.

BORIS DZANECK - IN HIS OWN WORDS (LP/DANGER)

After Dutch punk band Disorder split in 1981, guitarist Riks Ozinga and bass player Marcel Knijff decided to continue as a duo. A simple Roland computer replaced the drummer and a befriended poet came up with the name Boris Dzaneck, a fictional Eastern European war hero who functioned as the main character in one of his poems. Originally self-released in 1983 on a cassette, this post punk/cold wave album is now remastered and available on vinyl for the first time. The release includes lyrics, rare pictures and liner notes.

MR. WRONG - BABES IN BOYLAND (LP/WATER WING)

The debut album by a spectacular riot grrrl meets post-punk trio from Portland, OR. This LP-pressing is limited to 300 copies.

STALTERI, ARTURO - ...E IL PAVONE PARLO ALLA LUNA (LP/SOAVE)

Recorded in 1980, but originally privately pressed in 1987, Arturo Stàlteri's 'E Il Pavone Parlo Alla Luna' falls among the last artifacts of Italy's great wave of musical minimalism. Like the movement to which it belongs, rigorously resistant to categorizations and definition, this overlooked marvel sculpts a startling singularity. It represents a radical and democratic vision in sound, blending elements of new age, the avant-garde and prog with western and Indian classical music. Those who don't know this work yet (or those who already were looking for a rare original copy) will be delighted by this fine reissue.

VENOSTA, GIOVANNI - OLYMPIC SIGNALS (LP/SOAVE)

Giobanni Venosta's first album, released in 1984 when he was no older than 23, is a committed subversive parody of minimalism which makes the record such a unique and original work. Recorded in the living room with a 4-track Tascam, the album reveals a profound need of expression by this young pianist who felt clutched by the sound of Terry Riley, Michael Nyman, Brian Eno, Steve Reich, Penguin Cafe Orchestra and Dollar Brand. The contribution of Roberto Musci results in a more esoteric and mystical side to the record, and marks the beginning of a long and fruitful collaboration in which the arrangements of Venosta blend perfectly with the electronics and various ethnic and acoustic sounds as treated by Musci.

RITA, THE - JOURNEY OF THE K-VERBAND (THROAT LURE) (7"/4IB)

As the sound sources for this 7-inch, The Rita miked ocean fishing lures, while jigging for lingcod. The Traumatone underwater contact mics attached directly to the lures meant that every sound after the various lingcod took the lure (and mic) inside their throats was captured for further analogue manipulation. Limited to 250 copies.

IRONBIRD - IRONBIRD (LP/TRANSUBSTANS)

Second album by Swedish band Ironbird. A unique mixture of the best '70s rock and the heavy sounds of the '90s.

VARIOUS - LA NOIRE, VOL. 7: SHOUT SHOUT (LP/DOGHOUSE & BONE)

DREITH, DENNIS -BAND- - REUNION (LP/EVERLAND JAZZ)

Featuring most of the original players, this is a reunion album by the LA jazz band that was hugely popular in the early '80s.

AZEVEDO, TEO - GRITO SELVAGEM (LP/ALTERCAT)

An irresistible blend of soul and rock with an unmistakable Brazilian character. Originally released in 1974. Comes with full-size poster and info insert in English and Portuguese revealing the full, undisclosed story of the album.

PEREYRA LUCENA, AGUSTIN - BRASILIANA (LP/ALTERCAT)

Released in Argentina as 'Ese Día Va A Llegar' in 1975, and the following year in Europe as 'Brasiliana', the work reissued here was Pereyra Lucena's fourth album. This tasteful blend of covers and original compositions makes for a thrilling bossa jazz album with a character of its own. The release served as the starting point of the career of Guillermo Reuter's, who would soon after start his project Candeias, with Agustín Pereyra Lucena on guitar.

JONES, VAN - TIME HAS MADE ME NEW (LP/EVERLAND)

This 1981 soul/funk/disco LP, originally on Impulse Records, returns to wax.

SYKES, O.T. - FIRST LOVE (LP/EVERLAND)

KUSH, KODJOVI -& AFROSPOT ALL STARS- - LOVE IN AFRICA (LP/CHOP TIME MUSIC)

Led by the charismatic singer and musician Kodjovi Kush, this band is all about the joyous sounds of West African music: highlife, Afrobeat and Agbadjazz (a fusion of the traditional 6/8 Agbadja music of the Ewe people from Togo, Ghana and Benin with jazz and reggae influences). In London, Kodjovi created the Afrospot club night, named after Fela Kuti's first nightclub in Lagos. It was frequented by some of London's finest musicians, and soon the Afrospot All Stars were born: a collective of seasoned players from all over West Africa and the UK.
