Weekly Update: Buried Country, No Trend, Spacemen 3, Oneohtrix Point Never, Den

Posted by on
 
Thanks for coming to our Vivid show. It was great to see so many regulars there and we hope you all had a great night. Thanks to Nasho, Nun, Mick Turner, Knitted Abyss, Hurtsville and Toby, DIY sound guy extraordinaire. The excellent Opera House guys are always a pleasure to deal with. Hopefully we can do something again next year!  
 
We’re back into it again, with two huge import shipments, lots of local releases and a bunch of secondhand stock coming through the store. A LOT of exciting new records, so many we haven’t really gotten a grasp of their greatness, so here it is, in brief, followed by a full list of new arrivals… 
 
Big new releases this week from Oneohtrix Point Never -  Age Of (Warp) and Den - Deep Cell (Paradise Daily), current FBI record of the week. Any day now, we'll have the re-issue of Lubricated Goat -  Plays The Devils Music LP (a must hear for fans of swamp-y noise rock ‘n’ roll, e.g. The Birthday Party, Grong Grong) that includes liner notes from Stu Spasm, PLUS a nice re-issue of essential L.A punk 7” The Germs - Lexicon Devil. No Patience Records has delivered us a 7” local/Brazilian pogonuts Morte Lenta and the second LP from Newcastle’s Obat Batuk (co-released by NGM Records). In our opinion, both rule and continue 2018’s excellent run of local punk recordings! 
 
The Spacemen 3 re-issue series continues with Taking Drugs To Make Music To Take Drugs Too  and For All The Fucked Up Children Of The World and there’s multiple new releases from the world’s busiest punk label La Visa Es Un Mus Discos (see later in the newsletter). Penultimate Press bring us two new LPs from the archives of Danish composer and Fluxus member, Henning Christiansen. Den Røde Skov and The Executioner are both previously unreleased soundtracks made for the films made by his partner and collaborator Ursula Reuter Christiansen.
 
 
Pictured here is the incredible compilation of Aboriginal Country music titled Buried Country released by Mississippi Records (Portland, OR) and Flippin Yeah (Gympie, QLD) It’s a meticulously put together package of a wide range of sounds with a thick full-colour booklet of painstakingly researched info and interviews with the musicians whose recordings - spanning 71-89 - are featured, as well as those they knew and collaborated with. These images are of cover art ‘Jimmy Pompy plays guitar’ by Western Arrernte artist Vincent Namatjira and a portrait of Uncle Harry and Aunty Wilga Williams (known as the “godfather and godmother of Koori country”) whose music is also featured. Required listening! 
 
 
 
You Deserve Your Life is an LP containing previously unreleased studio recordings from NO TREND, fantastic “anti-hardcore” / no-wave / noise rock for fans of Flipper, early Butthole Surfers, and Stickmen With Rayguns.  Essential anti-social listening, as is the re-issue of their first 7” we’ve got back in stock. The Outer Himmilayan Presents LP (Dark Entries/Sacred Bones Records) collects the pre-RUDIMENTARY PENI discography of Nick Blinko’s Outer Himalayan record label. Collects 7”s from three short-lived bands – The Magits, Soft Drinks, and S-Haters. We got more than we bargained for with this one, very absurd avant-synth-punk!
