NIK TURNER RELEASES NEW ALBUM


from Glass Onyon PR

HAWKWIND Co-Founder NIK TURNER Boldly Goes Into THE FINAL FRONTIER!

Los Angeles, CA - After suiting up as the Space Gypsy in 2013, blasting off on an epic Space Fusion Odyssey in 2015 and enjoying Life In Space in 2017, pioneering musician/songwriter Nik Turner is now set to venture to the outer reaches of space rock with his awe-inspiring new studio album The Final Frontier! Picking up where his last album left off, Turner brings another set of psychedelic freak-out grooves that will take listeners on a journey they won’t soon forget! Standout tracks include the album opener “Out Of Control,” a super-collider of rollicking psych rock that unites saxophone and guitar in spectacular fashion, and the dramatic space ballad “Interstellar Aliens.” Once again joining our intrepid traveler Turner is Nicky Garratt of UK Subs and Hedersleben, Jürgen Engler of Die Krupps, and Jason Willer of UK Subs and Jello Biafra’s band as well as special guest appearances by Hawkwind alumni Simon House and Paul Rudolph. Available on CD in a digipak case as well as a gorgeous limited-edition yellow vinyl in a gatefold jacket! The Final Frontier will be in stores everywhere starting March 8.

THE BEASTS COVER FRANK ZAPPA


http://www.noise11.com/news/the-beasts-are-still-here-to-honour-the-beast-of-bourbon-20181128

The Beasts are Still Here to honour the Beast of Bourbon
by PAUL CASHMERE on NOVEMBER 28, 2018

Without Spencer P. Jones and Brian Henry Hooper there is no more Beasts of Bourbon but in their honour there is The Beasts.

Founding members Tex Perkins, Kim Salmon and Boris Sujdovic together with longtime members Tony Pola (since 1990) and Charlie Owen (since 1996) have taken to the studio to record one more album ‘Still Here’.

Brian Hooper’s illness kept him from the sessions and Spencer P. Jones only made it in for one song. The music world now mourns their loss. Brian’s song ‘What The Hell Was I Thinking’ is included on the new record. There are also covers of Frank Zappa’s ‘The Torture Never Stops’ and Warren Zevon’s ‘My Shit’s Fucked Up’.

FRANK ZAPPA FAQ


  • frank zappa faq
    by john corcelli
        (2016, book, usa, backbeat books)

Sometimes I do judge a book by its name or its cover and that's the reason that I hadn't picked up "Frank Zappa FAQ". I imagined it being some sort of mix of various articles that happened to be floating around on the internet.
My mistake.

"Frank Zappa FAQ" is an interesting book about the various aspects of Frank Zappa's musical output, alumni and FZ's musical legacy.
Well-written by John Corcelli.
Foreword by Ed Palermo !


KLOOT PER W & MAURO PAWLOWSKI - INSIDER / OUTSIDER


Kloot Per W's latest album "Inhale Slowly And Feel" got released on the Star Records label. It was Kloot Per W's tribute to the music of The Velvet Underground and featured Mauro Pawlowski as a special guest.
It seems like the duo had fun as they just released a complete new project: "Insider / Outsider", an excellent album that brings out the best in both artists.

The download version of the album is available. The CD (and k7) will be released later this month.



SUN RA AND HIS SOLAR ARKESTRA - ART FORMS OF DIMENSIONS TOMORROW

Last year, the UK-based Grey Scale record label re-released Sun Ra's 1965 "Art Forms Of Dimensions Tomorrow" album.
The disc has one extra track, 'Chicago Southside', compared to the original release.

"Art Forms Of Dimensions Tomorrow" did get an earlier CD release in 1992 on the Evidence record label, combined with the "Cosmic Tones" album but I don't know if that one's still available.

The album, plus the the bonus track, did get a digital Bandcamp release in 2014. Some of these Bandcamp releases do get released on CD and on vinyl by the Cosmic Myth label, but for some reason, "Art Forms" is not (yet) included in this list.
So Grey Scale is filling the gap...

Superb album, by the way.


SONTAAG TO RELEASE HAWKWIND'S SILVER MACHINE


from Glass Onyon PR

International Rock Collective Sontaag Release Hawkwind Cover “Silver Machine” feat. Nik Turner!

Featuring Killing Joke's Youth, Dave Barbarossa of Adam And The Ants/Bow Wow Wow and ex-Hawkwind legend Nik Turner!


New York/London - International rock collective Sontaag, whose conceptually ambitious, eponymous debut album (a sonically cinematic, cross-generic space opera) arrived into the progressive firmament to critical acclaim in 2014, are finally set to re-establish contact with our much-troubled earthly realm.

On March 15th, 2019, Sontaag return with a fiercely contemporary interpretation of Hawkwind's iconic 1972 hit, “Silver Machine.” The Sontaag crew on this particular mission finds core creatives Richard Sontaag (guitars, keyboards, producer) and Ian Fortnam (vocals and guitar) joined by Killing Joke's Youth on bass, Dave Barbarossa (Adam And The Ants/Bow Wow Wow) on drums and ex-Hawkwind legend Nik Turner on sax.

“Silver Machine” is mixed by Youth.

Design and photo montage by Julie Cunnah. Thanks to Kevin Nixon.

“Silver Machine” is available through Cleopatra Records via all digital platforms and also comes in radically remixed form courtesy of Sontaag's fellow travellers in outer and inner psychedelic space, The Orb.



SUN RA & HIS ARKESTRA - THE SPIRIT OF JAZZ COSMOS ARKESTRA

We're about to take a trip. Not a psychedelic trip but a sensation. A soul, mental, spiritual, musical trip.

WHEN GIANTS WALKED THE EARTH

Frank Zappa gets mentioned at least ten times in the Led Zeppelin biography "When Giants Walked The Earth".
For instance, there's the origin for the Mud Shark story (actually a Red Snapper).

The  Dutch version looks like this :



FRANK ZAPPA BUYING GUIDE


  • frank zappa buying guide

        (2013, book, usa, excitable press)

The Frank Zappa Buying Guide is a 90-page book that takes a look at (and tries to grade) all of FZ's albums.
Nothing new, but interesting for those who start exploring Zappa's universe


FRANK ZAPPA E I MOTHERS


  • frank zappa e i mothers
        (1981, book, italy, el topo)

Flashback to 1981 when the "Frank Zappa E I Mothers" book got published in Italy by El Topo.
160 pages. Mostly lyrics, but also some articles and even a couple of interviews. The articles and interviews are in Italian.


HARDY FOX - HARDY FOX

  • hardy fox: hardy fox
        (2019, cd, austria, klanggalerie gg271-2)
Hardy Fox's released a first album as 'Hardy Fox' in 2018.
Out of print, it got re-issued by Klanggalerie with a different album cover.

Here's what Klanggalerie has to say about it :
Hardy Fox often said CDs should come out with different covers to make their packaging more interesting. He created many different covers for his albums, you can see some of them on the bandcamp versions of his releases. For his self titled debut solo album, also known as Heart, Hardy made around 15 different covers. The second edition of it will come with one of his and our favourites that didn't make it in the end....... First solo album by former Residents composer Hardy Fox after the Charles Bobuck era. An album full of minimal love songs, a portrait of the young Hardy Fox. This is what he says about this solo debut: "Here’s a new idea. How about writing a love song? Oh, you say it’s been done, maybe overdone. So why would I be so foolish as to tackle such a subject so fraught with cliches and meaningless sentiment. Probably because I am stupid. But also because I have been led around by love in some form for my entire life. That isn’t really a complaint. Seriously, there is isn’t much in the world that is as interesting as love and its many related variations: attraction, obsession, sexual fantasies, broken hearts. It is the fuel that many of our lives run on. The question remains. Why join the hoard of people trying to say something new about love? I suppose that the emotional state is, more or less, unique to each person. Each of us has our approach to dealing with and surviving the chemical and hormonally driven state of mind. For me, I am still able to love as an older gentleman, but the intensity of love always takes me back to my youth when all was new and strange. Each element that drove sexual exploits had to be explored, considered and digested. Now older, I am able to gain some objectivity to set memories to music. This album is a glimpse into my younger self. Well truthfully, probably not. It is likely yet another fantasy of an aging man, still led around by his dick."

HARDY FOX - 25 MINUS MINUTES

  • hardy fox: 25 minus minutes
        (2019, cd, austria, klanggalerie / took gg299/took5)
Klanggalerie adds :
Hardy Fox, primary composer for The Residents, incredible solo musician, and the most lovely human being imaginable, has left this world. His last years were amongst his most prolific ever. Hardy stated on his website that he gave up composing music in 2018, but, believe it or not, only one week before his untimely death, he recorded this good-bye (mini)album to his fans. It is the most personal music ever created, a kind of diary, a stream of consciousness with fractured parts, with emotional and contextual shifts and most intimate comments. It is a requiem to himself and a farewell message to you. We think this album is not a 'commercial' release, but a kind of direct communication between him and us, so we are releasing this recording as a limited edition TOOK CD. Hardy and Walter established this label for special limited releases in 2016, and Klang will keep this label alive.

The first volume of the "Piano Reductions" series got released fifteen years ago. Arranged and performed on solo piano by Mike Keneally, that first volume made me listen to Steve Vai's compositions in a different way. I loved it. It made me appreciate his music even more.

And now there's Volume 2.
Beautifully performed by Miho Arai, the listener is treated to a fine selection of classic Steve Vai compositions.
Essential listening.


And from five years ago !!



NORDMANN - NORDMANN

I was convinced that Nordmann's 2015 "Alarm!" album was their debut (not taking the 10" that they released one year earlier into account).
I couldn't have been more wrong as Nordmann privately released the above pictured eponymous album in 2014.
6 tracks. Modern jazz.
Just great.

JONO EL GRANDE - ARTIFICIAL STUPIDITY

August 2018, Jono El Grande released his 7th album. On iTunes.
Last month, the album got re-released with a different track order, minus one track and remixed as "Artificial Stupidity (2019 Remix)".

I've been enjoying both releases today. I can't really tell what's the difference as I didn't put them next to each other, but I can tell you that I did enjoy it a lot.



CHRIS OPPERMAN - STUDIO HOUSE EP


This 5-track EP got released on iTunes in 2012. I always figured that it would also be out on CD some day, but that didn't happen.
Anyway, a beautiful little album that includes a very fine version of Frank Zappa's 'Blessed Relief'.

Thanks to Andrew Greenaway's Spotify playlist for bringing this one back to my attention.


RECORD STORE DAY


April something. Record Store Day.
Despite the fact that Record Store Day has completely failed to fulfil its purpose, there are a number of interesting releases :
  • MARSHALL ALLEN, DANNY RAY THOMPSON, JAMIE SAFT, TREVOR DUNN, BALAZS PANDI W. ROSWELL RUDD : Ceremonial Healing
  • CAPTAIN BEEFHEART : Trout Mask Replica
  • FRANK ZAPPA : THE GUITAR WORLD ACCORDING TO FRANK ZAPPA
  • Acid Mothers Temple - Does The Cosmic Shepherd Dream Of Electric Tapirs?
  • Residents, The B*** S**
    Previously unreleased, legendary pre-Residents album, an accompaniment to RSD 2018' s successful ' W***** B*** Album' . A must for REsidents fans and collectors, who have long called for its official release.
  • JOHN CAGE MEETS SUN RA John Cage Meets Sun Ra (DVD !!)
    The never-before-seen in its entirety, visual documentation proving this avant-garde collaboration of mythic proportions did indeed occur. Recorded at Sideshows by the Seashore along the Coney Island boardwalk on June 8th, 1986 as documented on VHS by John Polizzi under the commission of event producers Rick Russo and Bronwyn Rucker. It was long believed that Cage and Ra never performed together but as you’ll see,these two shared the stage the entire time. The VHS footage has been combined with the audio master (containing several silent sections and some mic issues that occurred during the production), which breathes new life into the tiny reels of tape. The silent passages illuminate new auras when presented with the previously unseen visual component, and now over thirty years since it was recorded, you can truly experience the full spectacle. Included here is an additional audio track of commentary featuring Rick Russo. Also included in this package is a 45 RPM record documenting John Cage performing verses from his Empty Words writings while accompanied by Sun Ra. The B side features one of the two "Silent Duets" the two performed together that night.


JONO EL GRANDE


It had been a while since I'd heard something from or about Jono El Grande.

MONUMENTAL FOLLY


Monumental Folly has just released "Back To The Salt Mines".
A fascinating album.

Some influences on these pieces -- influences on me over the whole course of musical life that, after I had mostly completed these, I thought, “well, there is that.” First, The Residents, because the pieces began with improvisations and are unusual. Second, J.G. Thirlwell in his earlier period, because of maximalism and using the studio as an instrument. Third, The Beatles White Album, because the development of pieces came about by following them wherever they led.

ANOTHER STICK MEN OFFICIAL BOOTLEG


We are now making recordings like this publicly and officially available for purposes of archiving, (our own) historical research, and for your enjoyment as a fan and collector. Each show is offered for a rather low price and the proceeds from these downloads will get split evenly between Tony, Markus, Pat, and Robert, the four people who worked as a team to make this music come alive.




DUSAN JEVTOVIC


MoonJune Records is releasing later this Spring the new studio album, still to be titled, of the Serbian guitarist based for many years in Barcelona, Spain, Dusan Jevtovic, who is accompanied by Gary Husband on drums, Markus Reuter on touch guitar, and Bernat Hernández on bass.

Here is the video clip of what is most likely to be the opening tune of the album: "Babe" (grandmothers in Serbian, pronounced: bah-beh).

FRANK ZAPPA - NEW YEARS EVE 1973



This new radio show album presents the so-called 'un-concert', a tape that Frank compiled in 1973 from various 1973 concert recordings.
The Zappateers source of this 60-minute recording is from November 8, 1974, and taped from WXRT. This album states that the tape already got broadcast on New Years Eve 1973 on WLIR-FM. Well, the intro does mention WLIR so I guess this is the same tape but from a different source.

Excellent live compilation.
This needs an official release !!

SNAKEFINGER - LIVE IN MELBOURNE

In 2015, the Secret Records label (from Madison, WI) released "Live In Melbourne" as a 2LP set in a limited edition of 300 copies.
2 LP's with three sides of music and one side screen printed.
This one's been out-of-print for ages.

Earlier this year, the set got re-released.
175 copies on magenta vinyl, plus a screen print on side four
and
250 copies on magenta vinyl, without the screen print on side four.

So if you didn't get a copy the first time, you might still be able to get one now.
Comes with a digital download of this fabulous concert.

CARL KING - 50 INTELLECTUALLY STIMULATING THEMES



I'm very impressed by the creative output of Carl King. One of his alter egos, Sir Millard Mulch, released a couple of albums between 1995 and 2005, give or take a year or two.
I got hold of "How To Sell" and "The De-Evolution Of Yasmine Bleeth" a while ago already, and I was happy to add "50 Intellectually Stimulating Themes" to the collection recently.

50 short tunes. Sequencer madness. Crazy melodies and drum patterns.
Much to my surprise, 'At The Zoo" includes the guitar solo of Frank Zappa's 'Peaches En Regalia'...
Well, thinking about it, it shouldn't have surprised me as it fits in perfectly.

A fine addition to the United Mutations Archives.


NEW ALBUM BY BACKBACK


Belgian quartet BackBack has a new album out, "4".
On the El Negocito Records label.



SUN RA - PATHWAYS TO UNKNOWN WORLDS


Re-release of Sun Ra's "Pathways To Unknown worlds".

-- info: Jan van Kemenade


THE WRONG OBJECT'S "INTO THE HERD"


With their new release, Into The Herd (Off/MoonJune) , The Wrong Object make a return to center stage, with a studio album of original compositions showcasing a variety of fresh, powerful material. After 15 years of an existence marked by extensive touring, recording and numerous collaborations with international jazz and rock luminaries (Elton Dean, Harry Beckett, Annie Whitehead, Alex Maguire, Stanley Jason Zappa, Ed Mann, Robin Verheyen), The Wrong Object ventures further into hybrid musical territories, pushing the boundaries of progressive jazz, rock and contemporary music. Perhaps the influence of the late Frank Zappa has never been more apparent. The songs continually weave, duck, dart, and ‘stop on a dime’; while exhibiting the “controlled reckless abandon” and a similar zany, humorous approach to both harmony and melodic/thematic motifs, akin to that which characterized his work. This is a herculean effort; one that goes a long way in filling the very noticeable long-standing void left in the wake of Zappa’s departure.




NEW HARDY FOX RELEASE


Posthumous release by Klanggalerie : Hardy Fox - 25 Minutes.

HENRY KAISER & MAX KUTNER - WILD COURSES

Recorded in April of 2017, this guitar duet album is a particularly special and unusual one. Like Kaiser’s 1979 classic WITH FRIENDS LIKE THESE duet album with Fred Frith, this Kaiser-Kutner recording breaks new ground in an unceasingly entertaining manner. Composed of duets on instruments with coursed pairs of strings, acoustic and electric 12-strings and 8-string bass, the music occupies very unique sonic territories.

John “Drumbo” French originally suggested that the two might find a fruitful recording collaboration together. Kutner plays guitar in Drumbo’s current MAGIC BAND, and Drumbo and Kaiser have collaborated for 40 years. A tip of the hat to the music of the original BEEFHEART MAGIC BAND occurs in the duo’s surprising cover of GLIDER from THE SPOTLIGHT KID. The bulk of the duets are improvisation, recorded live in real time.

11 remarkable and beautiful experiments, using a variety of 12-string guitars.
Beautiful.

APE SHIFTER - APE SHIFTER II

from Glass Onyon PR :

Instrumental Riff-Rock Masters APE SHIFTER To Release Sophomore Album APE SHIFTER II

Since releasing their self-titled debut in March 2017, APE SHIFTER have completed two European club tours encompassing Germany, Switzerland, and The Netherlands. They have shared the bill with Loudness, The Skull, White Cowbell Oklahoma, and Mörglbl, among others. Festival performances have included Zytanien (main stage), Burg Herzberg Festival, OBOA, Free n Easy, Festival Kult!, and others.

On Friday, March 29, 2019, APE SHIFTER release their follow-up album to their debut with their sophomore release APE SHIFTER II.

From rockin' 70's riffs played with punk rock ferocity to creeping metal grooves and all out bashers, APE SHIFTER give new meaning to intense simian instrumental rock from the nasty pits of the Hellabrunn Zoo.



NI - PANTOPHOBIE

Scheduled for the first of March, the second Ni album has just been released.
"Pantophobie".
Eleven tracks, all with 'phobie' in the title.
The first track is called 'Phonophobie' and is 15 seconds of silence. How appropriate.
All the other tracks combine strange rhythms with heavy guitar lines.
Supberb music in a beautiful package.
Great !!

Out on vinyl and on CD.
Also available as Bandcamp download.



NUBIYAN TWIST


Afrobeat and electronics !
Nubiyan Twist has a new album out on the Strut Records label.



TONY LEVIN AND AYUB OGADA


Tony Levin :
With the passing of the wonderful musician Ayub Ogada, it seemed right to share this duet. Recorded at Real World Studios by David Bottrill, Ayub played his nyatiti and sang, while I did some funk fingers bass and sang harmony. A train went by while we were running the song down, which inspired the title, and engineer Tchad Blake kindly donated his recording of that train, which we inserted into the take. It's from my World Diary CD.




NEW RELEASE FROM JOHN TABACCO




NI - LES INSURGES DE ROMILLY

After two mini albums, French band Ni released their first album in 2015 on the Dur Et Doux record label.
Entitled "Les Insurgés De Romilly", the album presents 8 full-blown energetic tracks.
Math rock at its best.
Love it.



SPINIFEX - SOUFIFEX

The latest release by experimental jazz ensemble Spinifex !!

from the Spinifex website :
In 2017, Spinifex adapted two pieces and recorded them for the CD ‘Amphibian Ardour’: a Sufi traditional of Kurdish/Iranian origin, and a Qawali traditional from Pakistan. We liked this music so much that we decided to create a whole project, SOUFIFEX, dedicated to music inspired by Sufi traditions. Deeply rooted in our musical approach of combining cutting-edge composed structures with free improvisation, Spinifex dived into the magic of ritually repeated patterns and concentration on the beat.

Out on the TryTone record label.

POLLO DEL MAR - YEAR OF THE ROOSTER



San Francisco based surf band Pollo Del Mar contributed their fine version of Frank Zappa's 'Peaches En Regalia' to the 2004 "Lemme Take You To The Beach" sampler.
