        Bell -- is the newest reissue imprint by the Guerssen Label Group. Curated by
        Jeremy Cargill (Assistant Editor for Ugly Things Magazine), the label's focus
        is archival and reissue work specializing in the realms of proto-punk, '70s
        pop/power pop, glam, psych, privately-pressed hard rock, and "out of time"

GKL     001     HOT KNIVES              HOT KNIVES                      LP      07.2014

(Note : Hot Knives were a late period folk-rock/power pop combo from latter '70s San
        Francisco -- and held two ex-Flamin' Groovies members in their ranks (guitarist
        Tim Lynch, and drummer Danny Mihm). Led by the hair-rising boy-girl sound from
        the Houpt siblings (Michael and Debra), and bolstered by the ringing, jangly
        guitars of Lynch/Houpt, and driving rhythm section of Mihm and bassist Ed
        Wilson, sparks flew when they united as a whole)
GKL     002     ETERNITY                ETERNITY                        LP      09.2014

(Note : originally recorded in 1979-1980, and released on a private label in 1981, many
        songs originate from an earlier period in the '70s, giving the release an "out
        of time" quality. Led by the confidant vocals of Wallace Stoneking and the
        "human-riff" creativity of Frank Monroe, Eternity created a groove-oriented,
        no-frills brand of hard rock, capturing the flair of their heroes existing
        a decade prior -- and within this set Wallace Stoneking tells of all the
        surreal interactions and experiences that colored their time together. This set
        is sure to please fans of '70s proto-stoner, hard-rock, "out of time" private
        press treasures, and your uncle who still drives that '72 Camaro. Recommended
        for fans of Blue Cheer, Black Sabbath, Nazca Line, Led Zep, Magi, Leaf Hound,
        and Stagefright. 24-bit remastering. Includes one bonus track taken from a non
        -LP 45.)

        10.     PUTMAN'S RANCH?

(Note : LP version. If you're continuously searching the margins for lost artifacts of
        the pop pantheon, you can find your daily dose in late period exponents of pure
        lean, Beatlesque power pop band Promise. Originally issued in 1980 on the
        Boulder, Colorado, area band's own Cumulus label, their eponymous debut is
        filled with melodic, beatific blasts of pure pop, replete with ringing, jangly
        guitars and rollicking crunch. Co-led by singer-songwriters and guitarists Curt
        Mangan and Danny Mey -- with aid provided by the just-right rhythms of bassist
        Randy Jones and drummer Gary York -- the group created an album with precious
        little allying it to the punk-inspired power pop or prescient new wave of the
        time, instead choosing to hone in on a classicist pop sound highly indebted to
        those famous moptops from Liverpool. Abetted by the fact that some of the
        group's members had been playing together since their teenage combos of the mid
        '60s,the album carries an out-of-time flair across surging rockers and mournful
        balladry. Got Kinda Lost Records is ecstatic to give this benchmark of
        privately pressed power pop another chance to shine with this first ever
        reissue. Includes exhaustive liner notes by Jeremy Cargill (Ugly Things Mag.)
        culled from interviews with Mangan and Mey. RIYL: Badfinger, Big Star, early
        Cheap Trick, Emitt Rhodes, The Raspberries, Liverpool Echo, The Scruffs, Shoes,
        Dwight Twilley Band, etc)

This first-time reissue is less a reissue than an exhumation, as Moore originally
released his singular, unique 1982 Rocket Robert LP in ed. of 142 hand-screenprinted
copies on his own Salem, Oregon-based Future Records; few copies circulated outside

Originally privately issued in 1981 in an edition of 1,000 copies, Islands in Space
explores space travel and cosmic ideology in a sci-fi psych odyssey and is filled with
atmospheric, lysergic creations atop a hybrid of sounds from the cosmic psych/prog
folk/new age spectrum.
