L'Etrange Mr Whinster

LP (Item 503208) Finders Keepers (UK), 1976 — Condition: New Copy
Just Sold Out!

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 10

Strange and incredible mid 70s atmospherics from Jean-Pierre Massiera – dark atmospherics that roll from heady psych rock to cerebral funk and proggy dynamics – taken to a far deeper dimension thanks to Massiera's hypnotic use of tape samples and layered vocal errata! It's amazing how much is going on here, especially given that the feverish hypnotic effects never lag – as wild and tripped out as it gets, the hold it has on your sensory processors never lags! Billed as a Gallic concept album, it may very well be that, but we can only speak for the visceral thrills – which it has, and many to spare! Includes 3 long pieces, "Frayeur", "Angiosse", and the 16 +minute "HIA".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Finders Keepers/Cache Cache (UK), Mid 80s. New Copy
Beautiful work from X Ray Pop – a totally wonderful French group from the 80s, and one with the same mix of female vocals and spare electronics that would later surface more strongly with Stereolab! These guys are kind of a bridge between that group and the early 80s experiments of Brit ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tape Recorder & Synthesiser Ensemble
Finders Keepers (UK), Early 80s. New Copy 2LP
Never-heard sounds from this amazing UK duo – an early 80s outfit who went by the name of Tape Recorder & Synthesizer Ensemble – a very good choice, given the instrumentation on the set! Most of the music here is relatively spare, but surprisingly tuneful – kind of in a space ... LP, Vinyl record album

Finders Keepers, Late 60s. New Copy
Darkly beautiful sounds from the duo of Don & Stevie Gere – a husband and wife who work here with a style that's folksy, but a bit spooky too – possibly due to the fact that the music within was recorded in their California home, and never issued for years! There's a deeply ... LP, Vinyl record album

Finders Keepers (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2LP
A weird sort of title – until you realize it's a play on the name of the city of Manchester, where most of this work originates – and where the testosterone must have been running high during the 70s, when most of these tunes were cut! The music here represents a world hardly heard ... LP, Vinyl record album

Finders Keepers (UK), 1970s. New Copy
Freewheeling, tripped out Catalonian rock from Fusioon! The album groove has bits of spacey rock, prog and freaked out bits of funk – you can pick it apart for trace influences, but ultimately, the vibe is all their own – Absolute Fusioon, indeed! Cosmic keyboards, dexterous drum work ... LP, Vinyl record album

Finders Keepers/Cache Cache (UK), 1985. New Copy
Dark 80s electronics from X Ray Pop – a record that has all the freaky, fuzzy touches of some of the best work coming out of the North of England in the late 70s – but was recorded a few years later, and originally only issued as a limited edition cassette tape! That format is the only ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chasing Rainbows
Big Beat (UK), 1968. New Copy
Weird and wild sounds from the Detroit scene of the late 60s – served up by a group who were scenemates of The Stooges and MC5, but never got the fame they deserved! These guys mix together equal parts fuzz and garage – at a level that still packs a solid, heavy punch – but which ... LP, Vinyl record album

DGC, 1993. New Copy 2 LPs (reissue)
Nirvana's final album – one that's as poetic as it is heavy, and as beautiful as it is brutal! In Utero's legacy gets greater and greater over the years, not only because its mastermind extinguished himself not too long after its release, but more than that, it's simply one of the greatest ...

Sunset/Cleopatra, 1969. New Copy (reissue)
Classic early material from these godfathers of the German prog scene – 1969's Phallus Dei – the first LP from the "II" grouping of the Duul commune! Phallus Dei encompasses everything from free jazz, to spiraling psychedelia and outright space jams – all graced with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/1960s. New Copy 2 x 10"
A great entry in this ultra-cool series – two slabs of 10" vinyl, packaged in a great gatefold cover – with an assortment of really rare, really raw, really raunchy tracks from the early days of rock and roll!

Limonada
Sondor/Lion, 1970. New Copy (reissue)
An amazing little record from the free-thinking scene in Uruguay at the end of the 60s – a strange mix of styles, but a brilliant one too! Limonada only ever cut this one record, but it's a real masterpiece – a blend of 60s beat group instrumentation, candomble rhythms, and some of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
