HELIOS CREED On The Dark Side Of The Sun

CD/gg254
Helios Creed is a founding member of legendary US avantgarde space rock band Chrome. Chrome was founded in San Francisco in 1975. Their sound wasn't easy to label - being ahead of their time, Helios Creed and Damon Edge created music that featured heavy elements of feedback and distortion. They experimented in mixing synthesized noise with rock instrumentation, therefore they are now seen as part of the post punk movement (even when punk was still in full flow at that time). Their breakthrough c more...

BOBUCK Egg Booty

CD/gg261
"Eggs are much like turds. With one big difference. Eggs have shells. The purpose of the shell is to protect the insides while it is being delivered to the world. The delivery of turds requires much less pomp and ceremony. These Bobuckian eggs do not have shells. They have shall and a bit of should. They pretend to be songs but have forgotten what the modern definition of that word is, concentrating only on what that definition could be. Could be. Should be. Could'a should'a. Bobuck's E more...

THE RESIDENTS I Murdered Mommy!

CD/gg257
The Residents' soundtrack to a never completed CD ROM game. The 1990s saw The Residents release a series of groundbreaking CD-ROMs. Freak Show was followed up by interactive album Gingerbread Man and then role playing game Bad Day On The Midway. All of these stood head and shoulders above the drivel which increasingly clogged the CD-ROM market and all featured Residential music as an integral part. I Murdered Mommy would have been no exception. Inscape, the company which had released Bad Day, ha more...

The Darkening Scale is the solo project of David Janssen aka Ted The Loaf of Renaldo & The Loaf. A purely digital affair, DS started in 2006 when RATL was on hold. David days about this album: "Sonic Archaeology was the second Darkening Scale (originally the album was in 3 long chunks and, amazingly, Stuart Maconie played the whole of Part 1 on his Freak Zone radio programme).

RAPOON Un Flic

CD/gg234
Cigarette smoke curled into the air which was filled with the sound of many typewriters, all clattering away, yet the sheets of paper remained blank. Everything was black and white and every shade of grey in between. The men and women wore pristine white shirts and black trousers. The ceilings were low and opressive. The cigarette smoke hung in the metal rafters. These was the offices of the Existential Police force. The sign, which curved in an arch above the exterior entrance, read “We Know yo more...

SNAKEFINGER Manual Of Errors

CD/gg239
Snakefinger surely needs not much of an introduction. Born Philip Charles Lithman in London, he moved to San Francisco in 1971. His roots lie in the British blues scene, but he soon became friends with The Residents who also gave him the name Snakefinger based on a photograph of Lithman performing, in which his finger looks like a snake about to attack his violin. In 1972 Lithman returned to England and formed the pub rock band Chilli Willi and the Red Hot Peppers. After the lack of success of t more...

BOBUCK Eggs For Breakfast

CD/gg240
"Charles Bobuck is a big chicken. Chickens make for horrible song writers. Their songs are just a bunch of repetitive clucking. The thing they do really good is that they make a lot of them. Almost every morning you can hear them singing, having forced a big song lump out of their vagina, or wherever those things come from. Bobuck doesn’t have a vagina, but you can still hear him singing every morning over some song lump he left on the carpet, or on the stairs. Fortunately Klanggalerie pick more...

Rideau! was Un Drame Musical Instantané's second album, originally released in 1980 on the group's own GRRR label. Since its creation in 1976, featuring Jean-Jacques Birgé, Bernard Vitet and Francis Gorgé, the group has decided to promote collective musical creation, co-signing their albums, which they consider as artworks in themselves, or their live shows which they try to renew every time they play. Un Drame borrowed their sources from rock (synthetizer player Birgé and guitarist Gorgé, both  more...

THE RESIDENTS Disfigured Night

CD/gg235
Over the years, The Residents have been so prolific that it's easy to see that a year could have simply vanished and gone unnoticed. And one did - 1997! In the early to mid 90's, The Residents were quite active in the creation of CD-ROMs, releasing Freak Show, The Ginger Bread Man, and Bad Day on the Midway from 1992-95. So much time was devoted to writing and designing the CD-Roms that, other than some soundtrack music for the game and a short side project, Pollex Christi, no music was recorde more...

Since 1998, American producer puppy38 has been recording under the project name hiroshimabend. With a range varying from found sounds, field recordings and industrial rhythms to long, dark drones and ambient/avant-noise, listening to the music of hiroshimabend has been likened to the experience of swimming in a milky lake of black ink.

Finally, after 5 years, here is the brand new album by the best band from the Czech Republic, Tabor Radosti. Egregor has all the TR trademark sound that you love: heavy rhythms that get cut up and distorted by Industrial noise, ambient soundscapes which are broken up by bits of vocals. Occult Industrial music at its very best. If you need comparison, think of The Devil & The Universe. Tabor Radosti are more serious though and less showmanship. They've been around for 15 years now and are renowne more...

CD/gg231
Before The Residents became the Residents, they were a group of friends from the San Francisco bay area. On this collection, a lot of different people are involved. No one remembers how many or who they were. The recordings were made in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Some of the people bonded into The Residents. Some of them did not. Four albums were recorded by these Pre-sidents: The Warner Bros Album, The Ballad of Stuffed Trigger, Rusty Coathangers for the Doctor and Baby Sex. None of them h more...

CHARLES BOBUCK Bobuck plays The Residents

"New arrangement and new vocals crack open altered interpretations of favorite Residents standards. Charles Bobuck mixes a bit of wood with va va room on this surprising non-ventriloquist project. It’ll have you singing with your lips closed while drinking a glass of water." That's what Bobuck says about the album. As you can see in the tracklist, Charles Bobuck is re-interpreting some of the finest tunes The Residents ever made. A very personal album, a lot more introvert than The Residents. Ne more...

THIS is the end of an era. Charles Bobuck became visible about the same time The Residents felt the pinch of the popularity of free downloading. They, like many bands, shifted their energy toward live performance. However, Mr. Bobuck did not like touring. He preferred making albums. So he quit touring and made albums instead. Logical. THIS is a collection of music from the many “underground” albums he independently recorded between 2009 and 2016, as well as, pieces he wrote under the nom de pl more...

'The Elbow is Taboo' was Renaldo & The Loaf's fourth album and was released by Ralph in America, Torso in The Netherlands and Some Bizzare in the UK in 1987. You can hear a great technological step forward immediately. Also, the list of analogue instruments played on this album seems endless. Included is one of their most popular songs, "Hambu Hodo" which was also released as a 12" single, and a cover version of the song "Boule!" by French band Ptose.

A Dancing Foot And A Praying Knee Don't Belong On The Same Leg was released in 1984 on Volition Records, Australia. It was Scattered Order's second album 2 years after Prat Culture. Their sound was by then still very much in the postpunk tradition, but more electronic elements kept coming in. Of course, there are also Mitchell Jones's trademark vocals to be heard, and some noisy elements break up the rock sound. As with Prat Culture, there are lots of bonus tracks on this re-issue including four more...

"What was left of Grandpa was pretty much the same as what was right about Grandpa. He was my namesake and therefore impossible to forget, despite not being particularly memorable.

Arabic Yodelling was Renaldo & The Loaf's third album and their second for The Residents Ralph Records. It took two years to make and finally saw the light of day in 1983. This collection of songs and tunes describes characters, places and covert observations, although not designed to have a preconceived storyline, the songs seem to lend themselves to a picture show of the mind. Each listener is free to wander through this place, creating (or not) their own interpretation. The title comes from ‘ more...

Maciek Frett and Aureliusz Pisarzewski who also organize the Wroclaw Industrial Festival in Poland every November have created a unique sound that is live also accompanied by stunning visuals. Newson was the band’s second album released in 2001 and is long sold out. It is less rhythmic than more recent works and has instead a very haunting dark ambience with eerie sound effects.
