ACID MOTHERS TEMPLE & THE MELTING PARAISO UFO 'REVERSE OF REBIRTH IN UNIVERSE' CD/LP COMING NOVEMBER 30TH
It's with great delight i get to announce the new album by one of my favourite bands, and one of the labels oldest friends Acid Mothers Temple!.
‘Reverse Of Rebirth In Universe’ is currently being pressed over in Germany and will hopefully be here mid November for an official shop release on November 30th.
The album will be available in three variations. Firstly a CD, which comes in a glossy card gatefold sleeve and also two vinyl editions, a regular classic black vinyl version and (for now at least) a mail order exclusive mint green vinyl edition. I'll see how the direct sales go with the green one and if there are copies left i will of course let them go to shops/distros when the time comes. But if you 100% want to guarantee getting one then direct is the way to go. The CD contains a bonus song (a cover of Gong's 'Flying Teapot') which hasn't been available on CD before. Both vinyl versions will of course come with a download code which will include this bonus track as well as the three album tracks themselves.
IN THE WORDS OF MAKOTO KAWABATA
"In 2016, 21 years after Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O. were founded in Osaka, Japan, there was a major shift in the line-up and "Next Generation" was added to the bands name. We now view the first 20 years of the bands career as chapter one in our story, and we are now turning the page to start chapter two. In 2018, it's time to re-record our classics with this new line-up, we just opened the door to the next stage"

PERHAPS 'HEXAGON' LP OUT NOW
Delighted to announce the new, and sixth album by Boston's PERHAPS will be officially released mid October and is a limited 300 only black vinyl edition in a high gloss finished sleeve.
I know many of you loved their 'V' album from last year and you can rest assured this one wont let you down. It's really hard to pigeonhole the band in a genre, so lets just say it's yet more weird and wonderful kraut/psych/space-rock from their own little universe. NOBODY sounds like Perhaps. And that can only be a good thing!
As with last years 'V' album. There are a number (100 to be precise) of copies which come with a bonus CD-R called 'Hexagain'. This CD-R contains a vastly reworked version of the main album and is stunning in it's own right. If you want one be quick!

NEW LABEL T SHIRTS IN STOCK NOW
Happy to announce that a new label shirt design is now available via the webshop.
It features a new wartime biker design on the front, with a new 'slingin' records since f*** knows when' motto beneath it. The back features the original three tanks logo. These are pre screen printed here in the UK onto black heavy cotton Gildan shirts. Not cheap tat!
I've also got another batch of the original, and dare i say classic 'riot' shirts printed for the umpteenth time. Same Gildan shirts, but with silver front and back prints. Simple and effective!

EARTHLING SOCIETY 'MO - THE DEMON' VINYL LP COMING IN SEPTEMBER
'Mo-The Demon' is the new (and possible swan song?) album from our old mates EARTHLING SOCIETY. And it's another weird trip through their own peculiar brand of psychedelic/space rock which, as we all know is nothing likes anyone else's take on either genre in this modern age.
a band that do their own thing.
As with the 'Crooked Under Moonlight' CD-R that came with the last Earthling Society LP 'Ascent To Godhead', it wont be repressed or available on it's own.
DEAD OTTER 'BRIDGE OF WEIRD' VINYL LP OUT NOW
'Bridge Of Weird', the debut album proper from Glasgow's DEAD OTTER is set for release this August. Available as a limited edition black vinyl LP, 300 copies housed in a glossy finished sleeve featuring the amazing artwork seen above and below.
Sure to be a firm favourite with fans of Acid Mothers Temple, Hawkwind, Steve Hillage/Gong. It's a trip.
Check out the video for the thirteen minute title track here
BLACK HELIUM 'PRIMITIVE FUCK' VINYL LP OUT NOW
July 27th sees the release of 'Primitive Fuck' the debut album from BLACK HELIUM. One look at that artwork should have you hooked, if not the songs inside will.
Check out the first review and a couple of promo videos via the Psych Insight Music website here I think it's safe to say they like it!
The album will be available as a 300 only black vinyl LP housed in a gloss finished preinted sleeve with insert and download code. You can pre-order a copy now via the label webshop and it'll also be up via the bandcamp site shortly
BLOWN OUT 'SUN ROT' VINYL LP OUT NOW
Much requested and much delayed vinyl issue of BLOWN OUT's first recording. This album, was first released on tape only on sister label Swap Meat back in 2014.
Four more Blown Out album releases later we all thought it was about time we got around to giving it the vinyl treatment. So here it is ...
Pressed in a one off edition of 500 black vinyl copies housed in new artwork adorned cover. This recording is very lo-fi in nature, as it was supposed to be. We've tweaked the levels slightly for this pressing but that's it. No remixing or tarting up rest assured. It still sounds how it was meant to at the time it was conceived.
HENRY BLACKER 'THE MAKING OF JUNIOR BONNER' VINYL LP OUT NOW
Somerset's HENRY BLACKER return with their third, and no doubt best album yet.
This nine song 40 minute record lyrically covers the downtrodden, shaking them with lysergically gloopy riffs of both the upbeat and downbeat nature. It's perfectly suited for 30 people in a bar having a night of pints. Or a packed venue in some exotic hotspotfull of characters having a night of white wines. Or would sit nicely sound tracking a person at home having a secret night on the cans alone, drowning their misery under the weight of an 8 pack of European strength lager.
Inspiration comes from all the desert rock bands and angular punk rock bands that always get listed in these things. You know the ones.
Pressed on a limited run black vinyl LP, 300 copies and a tape on sister label Swap Meat in even more limited numbers.
