White Stains - The Somewhat Lost Horizon"

1991 album by Swedish industrial unit White Stains, released on CD by Anckarstrom (and later, Staalplaat) in their usual lovely textured-paper sleeve. The music, all recorded in 1989, was written to accompany the films of Stain Carl Abrahamsson.

Mr. Velocity Hopkins - Mr. Velocity Hopkins"




Ostensibly a Pete Larson vehicle, this has Aaron Dilloway, Andrew W.K. (The Beast People etc), Doug Haynes, Harold Richardson (who was in Negative Approach and Gravitar), Steve Kenney (of Demons, Isis & Werewolves, Hatred and bang on in his own right) and Weasel Walter hammering the living shit out of guitars and beating a drum kit to within an inch of its life. My kind of action!

CD released jointly on Insignificant ‎and Bulb Records in 1999.

Ann Sidén - Mankind's Need of Comfort Is Without End"

I don't want to spoil this one for you, so I won't describe it too much other than to tell you that I smile every time I listen to it. "Mankind's Need of Comfort..." is, according to Discogs, the composer's only published work. It came out as a CD on Leif Elggren's Firework Edition Records in 2004, and is perfect. Like Elggren's own work, this conceptual recording can be heard as hilariously single-minded and deceptively literal. And yet...

va - Melt"

This compilation has a strange history. It was first released in 1992 as a CD on the Work in Progress label. The demand was probably sated by its initial run, but in 1996 an American label called Fused Coil decided to reissue it. Confusingly, they changed the title to "Dissolve" and they gave it new cover art. Like I said, strange. The music more than makes up for the publication weirdness: killer tracks by The Gerogerigegege, Husk, Whiteslug, dROME, Another Headache, Fat Hacker, Zoviet France, Master/Slave Relationship, Hydra (aka Stefan Jaworzyn), Lee Renaldo, Earth Mother Fucker, Antonym and Merzbow. That's one hell of a lineup.

Various - Bulb Singles #2"




Bulb Records was set up by James Marlon Magas and Pete Larson to document the Michigan sub-underground freak scene ... and they did it quite spectacularly. Unsurprisingly, this is a collection of 7"s (apart from Wolf Eyes' Fortune Dove 12") with a load of bands you've probably never heard of with many containing the label owners in some capacity. Quality gear.

A boot compilation LP released in 2000, featuring insanely rare tracks from the shit-fi post-punk-noise sub-sub-sub-underground. Since this came out, some bands' work has become easier to find and some has seen legitimate reissue. Tracks by The Door and the Window, Doof, Prats, The Janet and Johns, Men/Eject, AK Process, Danny and the Dressmakers, EG Oblique Graph (who would go on to record as Muslimgauze, and then to become dead), File Under Pop, Noh Mercy, Orchid Spangiafora, and probably other names you haven't heard of and I don't feel like typing.
