✨✧ Insect TrustInsect Trust ... LP
Edsel (UK), Late 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A sublime album from The Insect Trust – a really unique group who blended folk rock, jazz, and some nice trippy Eastern overtones! The style's really a great product of the time – a cross-cultural late 60s session recorded with a freedom from labels and categories – featuring instrumentation that includes bottleneck guitar, soprano recorder, kalimba, banjo, and a rich array of percussion – all in support of lead vocals from the lovely Nancy Jefferies. The sound is wonderful – experimental, but always tuneful – and titles include "The Skin Game", "Special Rider Blues", "Miss Fun City", "Declaration Of Independence", "Mountain Song", and "Going Home". LP, Vinyl record album
(Late 80s pressing. Cover has a sticker spot.)

DJ Shadow & Cut ChemistRenegades Of Rhythm – DJ Shadow & Cut Chemist Play Afrika Bambaataa (tour book) ... Book
Boo Hooray, 2014. New Copy ... $6.99 39.98
A sweet little tour book commemorating DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist's Renegades Of Rhythm tour – and one that features a wealth of rare images from the early days of hip hop – of old gig flyers, records, drawings, acetates, and more! The most incredible fact about the tour itself, is that Shadow and Chemist don't just spin records that Bambaataa himself spun back in the day, but they're literally spinning Bambaataa's own record collection – having been granted access by the man himself. As part of that, the book is a document of the record collection, and other items in Bam's archives – very much a document of old school hip hop – with text by DJ Shadow, Cut Chemist, and Afrika Bambaataa. The book is 78 pages – done in kind of a DIY style that makes it all the more appealing – with a beautiful hand silk-screened cover with by Paul Insect, and featuring full color scans of many of the actual records. The overall aesthetic is somewhere in the Wax Poetics mode, although maybe a bit less slick – and some of the drawings remind us of work by Mingering Mike. Book
(Limited to 2500 copies!)

Galactic Zoo DossierGalactic Zoo Dossier #10 (with cassette & trading cards) ... Magazine
Galactic Zoo Dossier, 2016. New Copy ... $19.99 22.98
The milestone 20 year anniversary issue of cosmic music magazine Galactic Zoo Dossier – #10 overall and the first new issue in 4 years – "a gift from the psychedelic godz" and well worth the wait! The Interview Issue, too, it features Arthur Brown, Bang, Max Ochs, Shirley Collins, Michael Chapman, Bonnie Dobson, Richard Pinhas and more – plus pieces on Biker movie soundtracks, Circus Maximus, The Insect Trust, a cool In Memorium section with illustrated portraits of departed heroes. and tons more cool stuff! What takes so long? Well, GZD is the brainchild of author/artist/interviewer/illustrator Steve "Plastic Crimewave" Krakow who handles the aforementioned jobs himself, hand drawing most of the zine, with minimal help from contributors – everything from artist portraits to custom ads, in the style of his long-running Secret History Of Chicago Music column in The Chicago Reader, though much, much richer in breadth and scope! It's over 150 pages (!!!) and comes with some mindblowing bonus material – including a thick stack of perforated "Damaged Guitar God" trading cards – plus a cassette with exclusive tracks by Jesse Hector, Nick Garrie, Bang, Comus, Peter Daltrey, Edgar Broughton, Michael Chapman and more!

Basil KirchinQuantum – A Journey Through Sound In Two Parts ... CD
Trunk (UK), Early 70s. Used ... $14.99
A "Journey In Sound" indeed – as the set's a sonically wonderful blend of noises and music, done in a spaced out and sordid way! According to the notes, the album mixes together oblique horn work by players that include Evan Parker and Kenny Wheeler – alongside sounds of animals, insects, birds, and even a tram – all recorded and distorted, in order to create weird shapes, textures, and tones! Kind of mad and indescribable really – but with a hidden beauty that's instantly apparent upon first listen! CD
(Out of print.)
