✨✧ Edward ArtemievStalker/The Mirror – Music From Andre Tarkovsky's Motion Pictures ... LP
Superior Viaduct, 1975/1979. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $19.99
Sublime soundtrack music from Edward Artemiev – not a big name for film scoring on this side of the Iron Curtain, but a really well-remembered talent for his classic 70s work for the films of Andrey Tarkovsky! Side one of this album features wonderful sounds from the film Stalker – music that begins in a sweet electronic mode, but soon gets darker – a weird space that's somewhere between the German elements of Cluster and Tangerine Dream, and some of the more abstract electronics of the underground academic scene! Yet throughout it all, Artemiev has a very visual approach to his sounds – one that steps out nicely on the one track from the film The Mirror, and an extended tribute to the director too. Titles include "Exodus", "Dedication To Andrey Tarkovsky", "Meditation", "They Go Long", "Stalker", and "Train". LP, Vinyl record album

Franco BattiatoPollution ... LP
Superior Viaduct, 1972. New Copy Gatefold ... $23.99
A really full-on early set from Franco Battiato – a set that's maybe halfway between some of his more avant compositions and some of the modes of the Italian prog scene at the time! The album's a concept one, based on the growing pollution of the planet – in a mode that's maybe similar to Earth Rot, by David Axelrod – and like that set, Battiato mixes together unusual sounds and ideas with some more straightforward rockish passages. Battiato works with a small group of musicians – and while guitar steps to the lead at some points, others very much more abstract sounds and forms. Titles include "Il Silenzio Del Rumore", "31 Dicembre 1999 – Ore 9", "Beta", "Plancton", "Pollution", and "Areknames". LP, Vinyl record album

John BenderPop Surgery ... LP
Superior Viaduct, 1983. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
Weird and wonderful sounds from the enigmatic John Bender – a record that seems to beat the darkest of the cold wave generation at their own game! Don't think of the record as "pop surgery", so much as it is a complete dismantling of all the best electro elements of the period – as if someone took all the early electronic pop singles from the UK scene, stripped them down to their spare parts, then only did a half-hearted job of putting them back together! The result is a set of really dark-yet-catchy cuts that are even moodier and more enigmatic than some of the farther reaches of the Sheffield scene. LP, Vinyl record album

Marion BrownThree For Shepp ... LP
Impulse/Superior Viaduct, 1966. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $20.99 24.98
An unbelievable recording! As Archie Shepp made his first album for Impulse a tribute to Coltrane, Marion Brown made his a tribute to Shepp – a wonderful lineage of avant talent in the 60s, stated boldly here, given Brown's amazing talent on the record! The album's filled with hard, soulful playing that goes out, but never too far – like Shepp in his best sixties moments – and Brown's working with a great lineup of players that includes Grachan Moncur on trombone, Beaver Harris on drums, and Stanley Cowell on piano! The tunes include three Marion Brown originals on side one, plus three tracks by Shepp on side two. "Spooks" alone will leave you loving this album for years to come – and other tracks include "West India", "Delicado", "New Blue", and "Fortunato". A brilliant blend of 60s "new thing" playing and 70s underground jazz! LP, Vinyl record album

Alice ColtraneMonastic Trio ... LP
Impulse/Superior Viaduct, 1968. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $20.99
Early work by Alice Coltrane – somewhat under the shadow of her late husband, as you'd guess from the use of his name on the front cover – but really stepping out here with a voice of her own! The Monastic Trio of the set features Alice on harp and piano – alongside bass from Jimmy Garrison and drums by either Ben Riley or Rashied Ali – both really fluid players who open up nicely in this way that's never to far out, at least in the way that John Coltrane was using rhythms at the time – but which allow Alice to really take the lead as a bold musical visionary of her own! Perhaps most exciting, Pharoah Sanders sits in on one of the album's longest tracks – blowing tenor with a force that's enough to bring back The Great One – but the real charm of the set is Alice's piano work, bubbling out here with a sensitivity that we never would have expected from the harder-edge sessions cut with Coltrane – that new level of spirituality she instantly brought to her own solo sessions. Titles include "Ohnedaruth", "Lovely Sky Boat", and "Atomic Peace". LP, Vinyl record album

FallGrotesque (After The Gramme) ... LP
Superior Viaduct, 1980. New Copy ... $19.99
The first great punk rock album of the 80s! The Fall are at their ragged, blurry best on Grotesque (After The Gramme), with Marc E. Smith balancing bored, barbed witticism and coy sarcasm brilliantly over the bands patented tinny trudge. As with the Fall's other great albums, it's difficult to make out just Smith is saying most of the time, but you still get the point. So many indie rock bands owes the inspiration for their career to songs like "New Face In Hell" – and other tracks include "City Hobgoblins", "Put A Block", "Container Drivers", "Pay Your Rites", "Impression Of J. Temperance" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

One of our key go-to albums by The Fall – a set in which all their early promise really came into focus – with even more wit and power than before! The jagged lyricism of Mark E Smith is razor-sharp – as is the instrumentation, which is heavy on that trademark noisy guitar from Craig Scanlon, weird keyboards from Marc Riley, and the driving power of the double drummers in the group! The music is every bit as textually explosive as the words on the cover – and titles include "Who Makes The Nazis", "And This Day", "Jawbone & The Air Rifle", "The Classical", "Mere Psued Mag Ed", "Fortress/Deer Park", and the classic "Hip Priest".

FallRough Trade Singles ... LP
Rough Trade/Superior Viaduct, Early 80s. New Copy ... $19.99
Fantastic early work from The Fall – some key singles issued by the Rough Trade label as 45s during the first few years of the group – already a great showcase for the mad wit of Mark E Smith! While we love the albums from this time, these singles are maybe the songs we go back to again and again – as they sometimes have surprisingly catchy hooks, even while maintaining an edge – and often resonate with that Smith sense of humor that sometimes takes a few listens to pick up on! Tracks include "Totally Wired", "Putta Block", "How I Wrote Elastic Man", "City Hobgoblins", "The Man Whose Head Expanded", "Ludd Gang", "Kicker Conspiracy", "Wings", "Container Drivers", and "New Puritan".

Alain GoraguerLa Planete Sauvage – Original Soundtrack Recording ... LP
Pathe/Superior Viaduct, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
A totally excellent soundtrack! This is one of the maddest we've heard from the 70s – with a baroque mix of wah wah funk and sophisticated orchestrations, very much in the mode of work by David Axelrod or some of the backings heard on Serge Gainsbourg's best records. No surprise it's handled by Alain Gouraguer, a groovy Frenchman with a style that's a mix of the late 60s baroquery of Michel Columbier, and some of the smooth sexiness of the best Italian composers of his age. Great electric piano, wah wah guitar, and soaring strings – with a sound that's as odd as the cover! Titles include "Le Bracelet", "Deshominisation", "Mort De Draag", "La Femme", "Mira Et Ten", and "Ten Et Medor". LP, Vinyl record album

William HookerIs Eternal Life ... LP
Reality Unit Concepts/Superior Viaduct, 1976. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $23.99 29.99
A rare treasure from the loft jazz years of the New York scene – an early session led by drummer William Hooker – with very open, improvised tracks featuring a shifting lineup that includes work on tenor by both David Murray and David S Ware! In truth, the concept of "lineup" is a bit small – as two tracks are just Hooker on solo drums, percussion, and vocals; one more is a long duet with Ware's tenor; another a trio with Les Goodson and Hasaan Dawkins on reeds and percussion; and the last is a trio outing with Murray and bassist Mark Miller – all very long, soulful numbers that never indulge too much in the freedom allowed, but really make the most of the space in the process. Titles include "Drum Form", "Soy", "Above & Beyond", and "Passages". LP, Vinyl record album

Liquid LiquidOptimo/Cavern/Scraper/Out ... 12-inch
99 Records/Superior Viaduct, 1983. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $13.99
Seminal work from Liquid Liquid – one of the coolest, funkiest groups on the New York scene at the start of the 80s! The approach here is a blistering blend of different percussion modes – from batucada jamming to funky drums – all tied together with these basslines that really make the whole thing vibrated with a massive sound! The music's a bit in the spirit of ESG – who also recorded for the same label at the time – but is also a lot more adventurous, and played with even more tightness too. Titles include the wicked cut "Cavern", which was the massive sample for the classic hip hop track "White Lines" – and other titles include "Scraper", "Optimo", and "Out". 12-inch, Vinyl record

Joe McPheeNation Time ... LP
CJ Records/Superior Viaduct, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $20.99
Wild early work from avant jazz genius Joe McPhee – and a set that's actually pretty darn funky too! This rare indie release features 3 long tracks – two of which were recorded live, with a tight combo that includes a very funky drummer! The album kicks off with the hard wailing "Nation Time", which begins with a shout from Joe, and which rolls into a vamping modal groove (almost Pharoah Sanders-ish) filled with spiritual tenor work from McPhee, and some nice electric piano that sounds very off-kilter – funky, but unusual too. Next up is "Shakey Jake", an excellent 13 minute funk number – with bubbling organ, vamping rhythms, and a nice extended jazz dance groove – one of the rare tunes that has kept the album at the top of collectors' lists for years! And last up is "Scorpio's Dance", a pretty raw and somber track, with a nice open-ended loft jazz quality – balancing things out with a bit of avant energy. LP, Vinyl record album

MekonsQuality Of Mercy Is Not Strnen ... LP
Virgin/Superior Viaduct, 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
The tremendous debut of The Mekons – a very different group at this stage than the well-loved act that has graced the Chicago scene for years! Instead, The Mekons resonate with a quality that really shows their link to the same Leeds scene that spawned Gang Of Four – and, if the gods were just, this album would have gotten the same sort of exposure and enthusiasm as that group's Entertainment – as The Mekons have a fantastic blend of punk, jagged rhythms, and wit – the last of which is maybe summed up by the cover and title, which is the group's play on the old idea of an infinite number of monkeys at an infinite number of typewriters being able to write Shakespeare! The songs are wonderful – a great counterpart to their first few singles on the Fast Product compilation – and titles include "Join Us In The Countryside", "Like Spoons No More", "After 6", "Watch The Film", "I Saw You Dance", "Lonely & Wet", and "Dan Dare".

SuicideSuicide ... LP
Red Star/Superior Viaduct, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Frankie, Frankie – OW! Take a broken-down synth, some crazy vocals, and a rich sense of imagination – and you've got one of the seminal groups of the New York scene of the early punk years. Suicide were a key bridge between earlier prog underground sounds and the art-rock punk styles that were coming out of New York in the late 70s – and one that was in a space that was completely their own – and still is, after all the decades since the release of this record! With this one landmark album, the band completely dismantled the cold German prog synth of groups like Kraftwerk, La Dusseldorf, and Tangerine Dream – and created a wild sound of spare anguish that brought a whole new dimension to punk rock. The album has got to be one of the top 50 "must have" rock records of all time – and titles include the cuts "Ghost Rider", "Rocket USA", "Johnny", "Frankie Teardrop", "Che", and "Cheree".

✨✧ Brigitte Fontaine & Art Ensemble of ChicagoComme A La Radio ... LP
Saravah/Superior Viaduct, 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the coolest albums ever recorded – a legendary meeting between the Art Ensemble Of Chicago and inventive French singer Brigitte Fontaine! The set was recorded at the end of the 60s in Paris, and it perfectly sums up all of the incredible energy bubbling out of the post-68 years – an openness to new music, new ideas, and new forms of expression – presented here in an open, honest way that only the Saravah label could muster! Fontaine's vocals are wonderful – soft-sung and spoken, with a style that's like that of a more artful and poetic Jane Birkin – and the backings from the Art Ensemble are some of their most sensitive ever – very balanced and conscious of sound, in ways that make us wish they'd recorded a lot more like this. There's never a dull moment on the record, and the set is honestly one of the reasons we first got into this business in the first place – the kind of life-changing record that's a real honor for us to stock. Frequent Fontaine partner Areski joins in on a few tracks, and titles include "Comme A La Radio", "L'Ete L'Ete", "Le Brouillard", "Tanka II", "Leo", and "Les Petits Chevaux". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Charles MingusBlack Saint & The Sinner Lady ... LP
Impulse/Superior Viaduct, 1963. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fantastic – and one of Mingus' greatest albums ever! This one ranks right up with The Clown and Pithecantropus Erectus for sheer raw power and emotion – and Mingus' writing here is incredibly tight, giving soloists like Charlie Mariano, Jaki Byard, Richard Williams, and Jerome Richardson a real workout. The set's an extended suite of tracks with sort of a semi-ballet form. Don't let this fool you into thinking that the work's some sort of semi-classical snoozer, though – as Mingus uses the structure to hit some brilliant raw emotion, and the "dance" part of the piece gives the work a tight rhythmic form, pushing the soloists into raw urgent grooves, of a nature that never show up on Mingus' other work from the time. Titles include "Trio & Group Dancers", "Solo Dancer", "Group & Solo Dance", and "Duet Solo Dancers". Quite hard to find on the original vinyl, too – which is why we're extra-excited to have it on CD!

Beautifully high concept work from Alice Coltrane – the kind of record you'd use to announce the arrival of a new king – or lord, for that matter! The record features Coltrane at the head of a large group of string players – creating a full, rich sound that serves as the backdrop for the core group of musicians – a trio that features Alice on piano, organ, and harp, plus Charlie Haden on bass and Ben Riley on drums and percussion. The tracks are long, and at times very dark – extremely powerful in their sound, and with a sense of hope, life, and majesty that's extremely inspiring!

Cramps/Superior Viaduct, 1979. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Sublime sounds from the Italian modernist scene of the 70s – an album produced by Franco Battiato, and which shares a lot with his own classics from the time! Composer/performers Raul Lovisoni and Francesco Messina may have a few less dark corners than Battiato – and work here in a style that's surprisingly melodic at times, almost with that sense of natural minimalism that we love on releases from Brian Eno's Obscure Music label. Side one features the completely beautiful "Prati Bagnati Del Monte Analogo" – with Francesco Messina on vocoder moog, synth vocoder Roland, and synthi EMS – but all coming across with a warm sound that's much more analog, mixed with piano from Michele Fedrigotti. Side two begins with a harp solo titled "Hula Om" – played by Patti TAssini – and closes with the moody "Amon Ra", which has slight vocals from Juri Camisaca, and "glasspiel" from Raul Lovisoni – which sounds like a glass instrument being tuned slowly.

RCA/Superior Viaduct, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Amazing! One of the few rare records cut by Bill Dixon during the 60s, and a perfect example of "new thing" jazz in action. Trumpeter Dixon plays in 3 different ensembles – a nonet, a quintet, and a duet – with players like Byard Lancaster, Reggie Workman, Robert Pozar, and Jimmy Garrison. The tracks are long, with an approach that begins with compositional structures, but which also showcases the avant solo talents of the players – in a manner that's similar to some of the Blue Note work by Anthony Williams or Grachan Moncur III. A darn tough record to find – and with the tracks "Voices", "Nightfall Pieces I & II", and "Metamorphosis". LP, Vinyl record album

At this early point, the Fall's studio recordings were pretty much live, too, but the presence of an audience makes all the difference – a tension and controlled sense of frenzy that's pretty amazing. 11 tracks including "Firey Jack", "Rowche Rumble", "In My Area", "Choc-Stock", "That Man", "New Puritan", "No Xmas For John Quays" and more.

✨✧ Steve ReichDrumming ... CD
Superior Viaduct, 1971. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
One of the earliest recordings of Steve Reich's seminal composition "Drumming" – an amazing blend of minimal percussion snatches, coming together to form a lyrical repetitive work of great beauty! This version is longer than most – stretching out wonderfully over the double-length set – with a raw power that's tremendous – as Reich works with the group first on eight small tuned drums, then opens the sound up to three marimbas and three glockenspiels, while also making space for male and female voices, a piccolo, and even a bit of whistling – all to create an extremely haunting sound that's still one of the best illustrations of minimalist at its height! The sound is incredible – a slow-shifting phase of sound from the percussion players – first conceived by Reich right around the time he was moving to work on keyboards from his tape projects – but, as a percussive performance, far more difficult to handle – especially given the extended time of the piece.

The title certainly gets it right – as Spacemen 3 were legally-registered heroin addicts in the UK at the time of this recording – very unusual in the years before heroin chic of the 90s! The set came out after the group's first few landmark records, but actually features earlier demo material recorded in 1986 – really wonderful sounds that are a great change from the tighter direction the group were taking as the 90s moved on – as these sides still have them very much awash in fuzz, and probably pretty fuzzed-out themselves! Sonic Boom provides loads of wonderfully trippy guitar feedback, and the group's a quartet here – with guitar, bass, and percussion – on titles that include "Come Down Easy", "That's Just Fine", "Mary Anne", "Sound Of Confusion", "A-Men", and "Losing Touch With My Mind".

Impulse/Superior Viaduct, 1968. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A set that really earns its title – as it's easily some of the most cosmic music John Coltrane ever recorded – and also kind of a way of saying goodbye to the planet, to leave his music in the hands of a next generation of creators! The album features material recorded by a Coltrane group in 1966, and an Alice Coltrane combo in 1968, after Coltrane's death – making it a great link between two moments in the group – especially since Pharoah Sanders plays tenor and Alice Coltrane plays piano on both tracks. The Coltrane tunes – "Manifestation" and "Reverend King" – both have a righteous raw power – and the Alice Coltrane numbers – "The Sun" and "Lord Help Me" – really showcase the slower-building spiritual energy that both she and Pharoah Sanders would carry on in their music. Great stuff throughout – and completely essential! LP, Vinyl record album

Don't let the "tapes" in the title fool you – as the album's not really some leftover material, and instead stands proudly as the third full record from Germany's legendary Faust! Even on a scene that was filled with progressive, experimental heavyweights, Faust could still stand alone – maybe more concerned with sounds than songs at times, as you'll definitely hear here – on shorter tracks that make for these marvelous mixes of sonic explosions and melodic inspirations – shifting effortlessly between longer tracks and very short bursts, with some occasional messed up vocals to liven things up!

Side one features "Second Two Octaves & A Fifth" – performed by Joseph Celli on oboe, but taken to this very modal, cyclical point – wherein the source elements are layered on tape, almost to create a single tone throughout the side – but one that has these slight shifts and pulses that come on very slow – maybe like the "action" in an early film by Michael Snow. "First Performance" features Celli on English horn, in a slightly similar approach – but with more tonal variety and inflection – almost a music of the spheres sort of mode! LP, Vinyl record album

Richard Pinhas created some amazing music in Heldon – the important French avant/electronic group of the 70s – then he went on to open even more musical territory with this fantastic solo debut from 1979! The album's different than some of the Heldon material – a bit less dark overall, with a more spacious approach – almost what the Sky Records material of the German scene of the late 70s was to the earlier Krautrock sides from earlier in the decades – and Heldon handles most of the music himself on guitar and electronics, but also adds some guest drums and mini-moog at one point. The album moves nicely between short and long passages – and titles include "Iceland", "The Last Kings Of Thule", "Indicatif Radio", "Short Transition", and "Greenland". 2LP set features a bonus third side – the live 24 minute track "Wintermusic".

Saturn/Superior Viaduct, 1964. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Landmark work from Sun Ra – a rare 1964 performance that features some very early work from Pharoah Sanders, a good deal of which is appearing here for the first time ever! The material was recorded at Judson Hall – and marks a great large venue performance by the Arkestra on the New York scene. Ra and the group recorded the set on New Year's Eve, 1964 – at a time when John Gilmore had left the Arkestra to work with Art Blakey – leaving Pharoah Sanders to come and take his place on tenor. Also noteworthy is the presence of Black Harold (Harold Murray) on flute – blowing with a dark edge alongside other group members who include Al Evans on trumpet, Teddy Nance on trombone, Marshal Allen on alto sax, Pat Patrick on baritone sax, and both Alan Silva and Ronnie Boykins on bass. The performance starts with a relatively fierce sound, but then moves into some beautifully lyrical moments – and titles include "Gods On A Safari", "The World Shadow", "Rocket Number Nine", "The Voice Of Pan", "Dawn Over Israel", and "Space Mates".

A totally unique album of electric guitar-generated sounds – created in the same generation as the experiments of Glenn Branca and Sonic Youth, but born out of a completely different energy altogether! The title here should be taken at a completely literal level – as the album features guitars played by machines – a different range of sabre saws, ropes, bars, or brushes – all brought into contact with the strings of one or more guitars, then set loose to make this beautifully cyclical music! Because of the resonances of the instruments, there appears to be some shifts in the sounds – so that the music isn't entirely repetitive, and instead has these surprising variations that seem to come from the interaction of the elements. Titles include "Thrash", "Switch", "Shake", "Throb", "Stroke", "Sweep", and "Slam". LP, Vinyl record album

The album's got an up-close, personal vibe – mostly just Bert's vocals and acoustic guitar, a bit like the earliest albums by Bob Dylan – and like Dylan, Jansch has this approach that's completely his own – very much schooled in older 20th century traditions, but focused on finding a new way forward – with a mix of melodic and harmonic elements that flow from his guitar with effortless ease, and are matched by some beautifully pointed vocals by a singer who sounds unlike anyone else. At times, the tunes have a quality that's almost hypnotic – a bit of a John Fahey vibe in the progressions, but a bit warmer – and titles include "Tinker's Blues", "It Don't Bother Me", "Harvest Your Thoughts Of Love", "Lucky Thirteen", "As The Day Grows Longer Now", "So Long", "900 Miles", and "Ring A Ding Blues".

✨✧ Steve ReichFour Organs/Phase Patterns ... LP
Standard (France), 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Brilliant minimal work from Steve Reich – pre-fame performances that really get to the core of minimalist composition from the start of the movement – played by a hip small group of musicians that includes Reich, Steve Chambers, Art Murphy, and Philip Glass! "Four Organs" is a wonderful combination of the instruments mentioned in the title – coming together with a cool drone-building quality, and driven by some very slight, soft rhythms on maracas – very cool, and relatively spare – but with a compelling sound that definitely shows that Reich and his contemporaries were onto a whole new groove. "Phase Patterns" has organs again - and is a slow, subtle exploration of Reich's early ideas on patterns of phase shifting – delivered here in a spare, stark, simple way that really hooks you into his musical ideas, in ways that some of the larger concept records sometimes fail to do.

✨✧ ScientistIntroducing Scientist – Best Dub Album In The World ... LP
JB (UK), 1980. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Benchmark dub by Scientist – and introduction to a truly pivotal figure! Introducing Scientist is certainly one of his best records – and if it doesn't fully live up to the subtitle boast ("the best dub album in the world"), it really does come pretty darn close! Mixed at master King Tubby's studio and bearing Tubby's influence very strongly, the record features Scientist and dub music at a genuine, pre-Space Invadors peak. A timeless dub masterpiece from one of the greatest ever! Titles include "Steppers", "Rubber Foot", "Elasticated", "Rocking", "Lovers", "Front Line", "Scientific", "Jungle", "Bali-Hi" and "Chemistry". LP, Vinyl record album
