SOMM    5       KILLING FLOOR           OUT OF URANUS                   LP      03.2016

The second and best of the albums released by this British group, originally on Larry
Pages Penny Farthing label in 1970. The impressive opening track ?Out of Uranus? kicks
off this great album, filled with acid- rock and blues- rock with an aggressive
production and in- your- face guitar riffs all over. Also features a couple tracks more
into psych- pop, all pretty well executed.

Largely known for their fantastic album ?As I turned as I had turned as a boy? from
1971, a true folk- rock delight, British group Dulcimer had also recorded a second
album to make it released that same year, but for some reason it went unreleased. So
heres finally the first ever vinyl release of this lost UK folk- rock album, and its
taken from the original mastertapes. Limited to 500 copies in nice artwork and
backflapped old- style covers, and 180g vinyl.

Formed in Amsterdam in the late 60s, Windy Corner were a psychedelic folk- rock band
who rarely played live. Using self- made instruments and amplifiers, they recorded long
sessions at their rehearsal space in a cottage. In 1973, they released their first
album, 'The House At Windy Corner', a 100 copies custom pressing on the collectable
Deroy label.Underground progressive / psychedelic folk- rock with charming home- made
sound and fragile atmosphere. Dreamy vocals, organ, acoustic / electric guitars, bass
and drums, similar at times to other obscure lo- fi psych bands like A- Austr or
Ithaca, Agincourt... First ever reissue. Remastered sound, original artwork, insert
with liner notes and rare photos.'Something of an enigma in the collector's circle,
their ambitious and intricate long instrumental passages remind me of the British
underground group Sindelfingen and the more understated and meditative improvisations
of the San Francisco- bands Mad River (first album) and Grateful Dead (1968- 70). Windy
Corner's home recordings were generally quite strange and highly rewarding?' - Dag Erik

(Note : originally released in 1971 on John Peel's Dandelion Records, Creation is the
        second album by underground folk troubadour Trevor "Beau" Midgley. Influenced
        by Tom Paxton, Lead Belly, and Dylan, Beau started to write his own songs in
        the late '60s. After trying to secure a contract with Elektra Records with no
        success, he was approached by Clive Selwood (Elektra) and Peel as they were
        launcing Dandelion Records. Beau signed with them and released his eponymous
        debut album in 1969. For his second effort, Beau decided to experiment with a
        more folk-rock sound and add to the mix some avant-garde influences. Jim Milne
        (lead guitar and bass) and Steve Clayton (drums) from Dandelion stablemates The
        Way We Live/Tractor were the perfect backing band for him. Creation is a
        brilliant psych/acid folk offering with superb 12-string guitars, heartfelt
        vocals, studio effects, and occasional acid-fuzz guitar. Beau's avant-garde
        influences come to the fore on the title-track, which verges into White Noise
        territory. The album closes with "Silence Returns," featuring one of the most
        ear-splitting fuzz assaults ever committed to wax, courtesy of Jim Milne. This
        first vinyl reissue includes two previously unreleased bonus tracks from 1972
        (featuring Tractor as backing band), recorded for aborted third album High
        Mass. Also includes four-page insert featuring the first cover design (which
        was never used), plus detailed liner notes by Beau himself and lyrics. Master
        tape sound.)

Bloody Turkey Sandwiches'' is another ultra- rarity by British psychedelic folk band
Pig Rider: only six copies were originally privately pressed by custom label Deroy in
1974. The music here is much in the same vein as their famous ''Heterophonies'' album
but even more crazed. Some of the tracks bring to mind the more experimental side of
Olivia Tremor Control / Black Swan Network or even They Might Be giants ?but only 20
years before those bands existed! Electric acid folk with stoned homemade atmosphere,
lo- fi sound, bizarre & funny lyrics, effects, backward bits, surreal humour, psych.
skiffle and old- timey music hall parodies, brilliant folk- rock- pop and titles like
''Interdrive Overstella'', ''Be Glad For The Song Has An Ending'', ''Pus In Our Time''
and ''Have you seen your neighbour in the bath''. Recommended if you like: Incredible
String Band, Bonzo Dog Band, Syd Barrett, R. Stevie Moore?

Although nearly 60 people have played in Pig Rider or its various offshoots over the
years, there have only been two ever- present members, Colin Kitchener and John Mayes,
who founded the band at Sevenoaks School in Kent, England in the late 60s. They met
when they were 12, and not long after began haunting the music rooms at the school to
hammer out current three- chord pop songs on pianos. After a number of other names
(including D Jabferg Flossyakkit and Bob Scratch and his Country and South Eastern
Spring Blues Band) they settled on 'The Pig Rider Robinson Heterophony' to perform
under. After an attempt to build a seven- foot robot bassist called Peregrine Robinson
to front the band failed the name was finally abbreviated to its current form. Pig
Rider's music has been described as 'joke folk / mock rock' and although they claim
that their minds were only altered by lot of beer drinking, there's a real psychedelic
element to it. Also, they should be regarded as pioneers of the DIY movement which
would came a few years later. They recorded at home with rudimentary equipment, they
used handmade modified instruments ('orgasmatron', 'banjelele', 'torture machine',
'aquaphone', 'swanee bicycle pump'?) and they self- released a series of acetate only
albums housed in primitive, handmade sleeves.'Heterophonies' was originally pressed by
the custom label Deroy as a private edition of five acetates in 1975. The music is an
amazing mix of psychedelic electric folk, acid folk and twisted pop with funny/bizarre
lyrics, tape experimentation, effects and homemade / stoned atmosphere.

(Note : Bazar was one of the hardest-working progressive bands from Scandinavia. This
        is the first reissue of their killer second album from 1974. Wah-wah-fuelled
        guitar action, organ, flute, melodic vocals, and radical lyrics. Drabantbyrock
        combines heavy numbers, West Coast guitar jams, and dreamy moments, featuring
        the superb guitar playing of Bent Patey. Kick-ass psychedelic/progressive hard
        rock from Norway, highly recommended for those into Swedish hard rock bands
        such as November. 24-bit remastering. Includes insert with liner notes by

The English coast town of Hull produced a couple of highly regarded bands/artists,
including Mick Ronson, Robert Palmer and The Hullaballoos. The city also was home to
BARE SOLE, a heavy psychedelic rock and blues band that toured US air bases in Germany
and supported bands s.a. Family, Status Quo, The Move and Small Faces in 1969-1970.
Unfortunately the guys never released an album and vanished into obscurity. They did
however record a really fine demo tape (rejected by Decca) which now sees the light of
day as an official release. So if you're into seductive garage/blues/psych with
explosive doses of fuzz, wah-wah and Farfisa organ, don't hesitate! Liner notes are
included!

        06.     IN MY FATHER'S HOUSE

First reissue; licensed from the original band members. Remastered sound. Incl. liner
notes and photos. Formed in Glasgow in the early '70s, White Light were not an ordinary
Xian rock band; influenced by the explosive sound of The Who, the hard blues of John
Mayall's Bluesbreakers, and even Black Sabbath, their live performances across the
country featured heavy rock sounds, howling feedback, phased lighting effects, and
commitment to the real enjoyment of rock music. They were formed not to play in
churches, but to take the message to the rock generation in loud clubs, halls, and big
rock venues. In 1972, they were finalists in a national rock competition organized by
Melody Maker magazine. This event encouraged the band to enter the studio for the
recording of their first album. The ultra-obscure Parable was originally released as a
private pressing in 1974 (it's featured in Hans Pokora's 7001 Record Collector Dreams
book with the maximum rarity rating). Housed in a mysterious cover, the music is Xian
hard psych straight from the garage with lots of raw fuzz guitar and Vox Continental
organ. Combining hard rock with heavy blues and dreamy moments, it features the monster
sidelong track "Prodigal," which has to be heard to be believed.

Cosmic acid-psych-soul-funk-prog extravaganza from Spain, 1971. Proyecto A was the
brainchild of the great Frank Dubé from Barcelona. What can one say about him? A truly
fascinating character -- a pioneer of rock and roll and twist in Spain during the late
'50s and early '60s, an accomplished accordion player, a showman, comedian, a psycho
aesthetics master -- but he should also be considered one of the first psychedelic
pioneers in Spain due to his groundbreaking work on the Proyecto A album.
