WB      1       VERT: X                 FROM NOW TO NOW                 LP      06.2017

Armed only with coruscating guitars, metronomic beats and a hanger full of spacey
electronica, VERT:X has been traversing the space rock continuum since 2007, thrilling
the various encountered lifeforms with a unique brand of psych, kraut and spacepunk
meanderings. Drawing on early Hawkwind, Chrome, The Stooges and the unmistakeable
motorik beats of NEU!, the band's high adrenalin, visceral sonic attacks have drawn
praise from every corner of the known musicverse: "A perfect answer to life and the
universe and everything" ~Alive Reports "Pure acid fuelled driving energy to drift
and soar with" ~Steve Judd, Unwashed Territories "Heavy-duty space-freighters drilling
a hole through the fabric of time/space reality" ~Spacerock Reviews

WB      2       BAND WHOSE NAME IS A SYMBOL : COSMIC CURIOS             LP      11.2017

This is a collection of tracks dug up from the band's huge archive. the material
spans the period 2009-2016, with all but one track never been appearing on vinyl
before. We hear long, entirely improvised tracks of crushing krautrock and face
melting psych, with generous sprinklings of rawk'n'roll. All the songs are played
with skill, dexterity and, most importantly, a genuine love for the music. This run
is limited to 250 copies on black vinyl.

WB      3       MILDRED MAUDE           CPA I-III                       LP      03.2018

Mildred Maude have been making a real name for themselves amongst the cognoscenti of
all things loud and psychedelic, so much so that they have had a stint as Damo Suzuki's
Soundcarriers which is as good a seal of approval as you are gonna get. 'CPA I-III'
is the band's debut album, entirely improvised and captured in one take. The three
tracks are "captured snippets" of an ever-growing, organic beast that is 'CPA'
('Cosmic Pink Alignment'), a song that began at 8pm on 14th November 2014. Taking
the best bits of psych, noise and a sprinkle of post-rock, the tracks positively
crackle with creativity and spontaneity. It's an exhilarating and breathless trip!
Limited to 250 copies on pink vinyl.
