'Plays The Greys' is a patchwork album, but don't let that imply carelessness. Each odd juxtaposition serves a purpose and illuminates its surroundings like a torch in the night. Part one and part two of the title track are perfect examples of Dan's decidedly non-academic approach to musique concrete's a-musical gestures. Field recordings bump up against back-porch guitar plucking that morphs into radio declarations by the good Christians among us. Praise be. Edition of 500 copies.

MELCHIOR, DAN - ALL AT SEA

MELCHIOR, DAN - ALL AT SEA

The stuff Dan Melchior 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 works by Franco Battiatio (Fetus and Pollution). 'All At Sea' consists of all these elements ... read more »

 

MELCHIOR, DAN - ASSEMBLAGE BLUES

This here LP seemingly vibes from such leftfield Blighty heavies as Instant Automatons and L. Voag as well as the dark side of Alex Chilton (think 'Dusted In Memphis') and the 3:00 A.M. shudder of 'Prominent Disturbance', securing him a spot somewhere between The Shadow ... read more »

MELCHIOR, DAN - BORN UNDER A GREY SIGN

MELCHIOR, DAN - BORN UNDER A GREY SIGN

'Born Under A Grey Sign' shows DAN MELCHIOR confident enough to do whatever he damn well pleases. He'll go from singing a sea shanty directly into drum machine chaos, all the while keeping things rooted somehow in his brand of folk/rock/garage whatever.

 

MELCHIOR, DAN - FILTHY FROZEN RIVER (2LP)

MELCHIOR, DAN - FILTHY FROZEN RIVER (2LP)

EVANS, TIM - WRETCHED WINGS

Originating from the island of Tasmania, Tim Evans releases an enjoyable album that draws on swamp-punk, full-tilt psychedelic boogie, no wave lurch and corrosive noise rock.

 

CODE BMUS - STRIKE NOW

A great archival release of early '80s post-punk by a London-based 4-piece, not only influenced by the throbbing rhythms of PiL, The Pop Group and Pere Ubu, but also by the politically-charged reggae and dub of f.i. King Tubby, Prince Far-I and the Coxsone Sound System. ... read more »

 

QUIETUS - VOLUME THREE

QUIETUS - VOLUME THREE

QUIETUS sounds like the house band at the last bar at the end of the universe, accessible through a secret entrance by way of a whispered password. At times, Quietus is akin to a post-rock take on some of the finer songwriters of our age: the wee-hours-last-cigarette waltz ... read more »

 

WILFUL BOYS - ROUGH AS GUTS

A cool LP by Aussie-born, New York City-based noise-punk outfit The Wilful Boys. If you thought the single 'Anybody There' was a fine example of brutal rock'n'roll, you ain't heard nothin yet!

 

SPARROW STEEPLE - A AARDVARK

This fine 12-inch contains psychedelic campfire singalongs reminding of both Bardo Pond and The Carter Family.
