The missing component in the history of Turkish pop and one of the earliestexponents of Turkish electronic music alongside Ilhan Mimaroglu and Bülent Arel,Gökçen Kaynatan electrified the rock and roll scene of the late 50s/early 60s –sending teenagers wild with his custom built guitars and back lines – helpingcharge the climate for the birth of Anatolian rock. Then, from the sanctuary of hisprivate studio, he revolutionised the industry with his pioneering use of electronicswhilst hanging the sonic wallpaper in the living rooms of an entire generation oftelly addicts as in house composer of choice for Turkey’s first national televisionchannel TRT 1. Despite having a modest discography of only four 7” singles to hisname his influence is a major current that flows through over 50 years of Turkishpop culture.Compiled with unparalleled access to his private studio vault, Finders Keepersproudly presents the first-ever collection of Gökçen Kaynatan’s pioneeringearly electronic works. Featuring a selection of his experimental pop and rockrecordings dating from as early as the 1968 it features both of the highly soughtafter 1 Numara singles – including a never before heard extended version of Evren– as well as previously unheard archive material and songs recorded for andbroadcast exclusively on TRT 1 – most of them never to be repeated. In helpingGökçen end his self-imposed 44-year exile from the record industry we can nowshare with you the first of these important recordings from a genuine maverick whohelped shape the face of modern Turkish music, as well as shedding some light onthe rise of one of Anatolian rock and pops must fruitful and experimental periodsthat began with the arri

After decades in the making Finders Keepers Records are proud to present the first-ever pressing of Serge Gainsbourg’s most elusive and coveted soundtrack studio recordings – co-written, arranged and orchestrated by the genius Jean-Claude Vannier (Histoire De Melody Nelson) during what many consider to be the dynamic duo’s most definitive creative period. Believed to have been lost in a studio fire by Gainsbourg enthusiasts for over forty years (a myth that also shrouds Morricone’s lost Danger Diabolik soundtrack) the misplaced master-tapes for the drug-fuelled/Mai 68 cash-in/road-movie Les Chemins De Katmandou have been widely considered the final audio jigsaw piece in an immaculate discography/filmography thus earning this soundtrack bone-fide Holy Grail status amongst the most avid disc detectives. Featuring the original crack team of Paris based players now recognised as French library music royalty, this LP epitomises the inimitable musical direction and expert psychedelic pop musicianship that graced classic Gainsbourg/Vannier soundtracks like La Horse, Cannabis and Sex Shop. Laying the stylistic, future-proof foundations for subsequent decades of forward-thinking Gallic funk mastery. Comprising Vannier’s signature recipe of thick plucked bass lines, close-micced drums, biting Clavinet and Eastern influenced strings and percussion (and a sprinkling of subtle traditional French instrumentation) the soundtrack to Les Chemins De Katmandou (aka The Road To Katmandu or The Pleasure Pit) captures Vannier and Gainsbourg in the first year of their creative partnership capturing their unique embryonic energy.

As one of the most enigmatic figures of the 1970s Italian soundtrack and library music network Emma De Angelis and her short recording career provides thirsty fans of speedball psychedelic rock and drum heavy instrumental funk with a tight discography rivalling many of the long-standing bastions of the otherwise male-orientated business.Born in Rocca di Papa, near Rome, into a flourishing musical environment, Emma was the younger sister of future award winning composers Guido and Maurizio De Angelis, a duo who, under names like Oliver Onions and Dream Bags, would write chart-topping lyrical theme tunes for a wide range of Italian crime, Giallo and Spaghetti Western films featured alongside full scores by Ennio Morricone and the Magnetic System composers (Bixio Frizzi Tempera).With encouragement from her brothers, Emma, who would also write music under the pseudonym of Juniper, would record a tight clutch of solo-penned material and seldom credited studio contributions to Guido And Maurizio’s film commissions, such as the score for Giuliano Carnimeo’s ‘Simone e Matteo: Un gioco da ragazzi’ (aka ‘Convoy Buddies’). While simultaneously pursuing a career as an illustrator and set designer the De Angelis family contacts would lead Emma to the offices of Romano Di Bari, whose up-and-coming Flirt label was finding success providing custom-built mood music for use in TV and film. Alongside important composers like Alessandro Alessandroni, Gerardo Iacoucci and A. R. Luciani, the young Emma Di Angelis would record a small number of tracks for a compilation called ‘Underground Mood’ (credited in the small print to E De Angelis - not to be confused with Italian singer Edoardo De Angelis). It is from this rare LP that the record you are now holding is compiled. Within the Flirt family of labels Emma De Angelis would also share schedules with other important female composers such as Daniela Casa and Giulia ‘Kema’ De Mutiis - both of whom have appeared on dedicated Finders Keepers releases.The tracks on this record provide us with a rare glimpse into Emma De Angelis’ short musical career before she became a full time visual artist. With an unknown personnel or studio date it is easy to speculate a potential family jam in Piero Umiliani’s Sound Workshop studio in 1972. One only has to take a listen to Guido And Maurizio’s instrumental theme ‘Gangster Story’ from Enzo G. Castellari’s 1973 thriller ‘High Crime’ (which later appeared on Tarantino’s ‘Death Proof’ soundtrack) or the trippy title theme to Paolo Poeti’s kinky 1976 drama Inhibition to spot the family resemblance.

To mark the ten years of Finders Keepers we present a lovingly remastered and repackaged release of the album where it all began. Within the last ten years the resurgence of sixties Gallic pop, once known as Ye-Ye music, has escalated beyond an inter-stellar dizzy height. What might have been a waning, embarrassing genre destined for a shelf life/death gathering dust amongst the Eurovisions of yesteryear, the ‘jerk-beat’ psychsploitation records of the latter day French disco had soon found new floor space in some of the most credible nightspots in London and Japan.Without a shadow of doubt, the flagship LP with best odds on becoming a discerning household object was Histoire de Melody Nelson by one Serge Gainsbourg. An inimitable, 45-minute concept LP handcrafted by a bass-driven psychedelic rock group and a heaven sent, 1001 piece orchestral and choral symphony. The album left hip hop producers alongside progressive rock aficionados crying out for more and more for years to come. This LP was in a league of its very own… or was it?The seldom-sung musical arranger for Melody Nelson has become one of the most enigmatic names in French-funk; lorded by many as the “French David Axelrod” Jean-Claude Vannier’s name is the lesser-spotted, tell-tale seal of sample-friendly quality when it comes to crate-digging ‘en Francais’. Suitably, when rumours amongst French record dealers claiming “the band who played Melody Nelson recorded a follow-up lp” became a legend of psychedelic folklore. Another unconfirmed rumour about JCV taking the remaining out-takes of the beloved Melody Nelson to create a promo-only experimental rock LP left sample hungry producers and DJs in turmoil…For those in the know the answers to these mysteries lay flat between the anonymous gatefold sleeve of an undiscovered conceptual album bizarrely entitled “L’Enfant Assassin des Mouches” by a custom-built avant-rock entourage called Insolitudes. The rocking-horse manure treasure hunt began.So here we have it. The mythical teen-tonic for all those suffering from Melody Nelson withdrawal symptoms. For record collectors looking for that special something, this LP contains the extra special everything. Peruse the following genres: psychedelic, classical, soundtracks, jazz, hip hop, samples, avant-garde, funk. Then place a copy of L’Enfant Assassin des Mouches in each section. History denotes that when ‘our man in Paris’ Msr. Gainsbourg first heard the initial bones of this LP he took his poetic pencil to paper providing bizarre liner notes, thus consummating the most extraordinary concept album of all time. The story “The Child Assassin Of The Flies” was to be included as the only information to grace the LPs highly collectible, concertina gatefold sleeve. The story in full is reproduced in its native-tongue on this very special re-release package.DJs and Producers such as Jim O’Rourke, Stereolab’s Tim Gane and David Holmes have spent sleepless nights in perusal of original copies of this perfect release and now regard it as ‘One Of The Best’. Recent copies on eBay have commanded ridiculous price tags, and is now one of the most sought-after articles amongst the vinyl hungry hip-hop community

Genre:Film / TV
“I am black beauty... love me!” A forthright enough request, one would think, from an artist whose music was indeed loved, revered and which played a hugely influential and omnipresent role in Lahore’s vibrant cinematic patchwork that covered the late 1970s and early 1980s. However, until now, it seems that this lost love letter to a potential global audience of millions of sonic suitors has been caught up in the pesky Pakistani postal system. Nahid Akhtar needs a connection.Don’t blame the Khyber Mail. In a neat and tidy career that spanned exactly ten years, Nahid Akhtar came, saw and conquered, then relatively disappeared without even thinking about buying the t-shirt. Disrobing the vibrant finery that interweaved textures of Ghazals, classical music, Punjabi folk songs and Qawwalis (not forgetting a wide range of progressive pop music penned for the Pakistani picture house) from which this records track list is lovingly gathered.It is virtually unfathomable that the multifarious music of Nahid Akhtar – combining textures, tempos, technologies, global in fences and multicultural languages (and all this within the opening seconds of a song!) – didn’t open the door to international stardom to match that of Asha Bhosle or Lata Mangeshkar from India. In the last few years the music of Lollywood’s golden era has enjoyed a marked resurgence amongst outernational music fans, with labels like Finders Keepers remastering and compiling the work of the Tafo Brothers and M. Ashraf for a global market with wide critical acclaim. Hopefully, with this collection as a sturdy stepping stone to a widely rewarding expanse of further listening, the music of Nahid Akhtar can find a place alongside your favourite international songbirds and her

Release:2017 / UK – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Welcome to the parallel musical universe of Miss Maria Teresa Luciani, a landscape of sonic architecture and theoretical composition constructed by a family of engineers that reinvented the wheel before the vehicle even began the journey. Imagine, if you will, the musical equivalent of Peter Cook’s Archigram group or the soundtrack to Charles and Ray Eames’ private sketchbooks, hinting at a new municipal, utopian metropolis just hours before the blueprints are suspiciously misplaced by the courier and mainstream pop building regulations piss on our asbestos bonfire. These 1972 constructions of progressive, cyclic, proto-industrial colour music were never intended for public habitation. These are the Sounds Of The City in a galaxy far, far beneath our radar and above your expectations that was never built. Pseudo-futurist pop music? Cubic folk? Tape-op-art? Sì, grazie!Before the needle hits the first groove, the story of Maria Teresa Luciani reads like an Alphaville caper full of foreign intrigue, low intensity identification fraud, secret codes, family bonds, mistrust and wanderlust... Naturally, you are holding a genuineFinders Keepers article. To say this rare Italian concept album is “unbelievable” is justified on multiple levels. This multi-storey storage facility of found sounds, radiophonic samples, tape loops, early electronic music experiments, mechanicalfolk, cinematic vision, sound design, educated music theory, political pop and high concept art-as-noise successfully layers more musical ideas within its unique structure than one would think possible for a solo artist within any musical genre.This is why Sounds Of The City presents us with a brand new genre defying compositional framework, pre-dating sampling culture, cut ‘n’ paste plunderism and industrial music in the process. Pre-digital, indefinable and genuinelyunbelievable. But who is Maria Teresa Luciani? On hearing this record respected collectors and enthusiasts have suggested “the female answer to Basil Kirchin,” or “the Italian Daphne Oram”. Both with justified cause. Mystery, myth, legend,teacher, artist, inventor, author, musician, psychologist, daughter, and (possibly most importantly) sister.

The lost synth manifesto that could have changed the course of electronic music history by the first ladyof modular synth history, Suzanne Ciani.Finders Keepers invite you to witness the incredible first ever Buchla synthesiser concerts/demonstrationsproviding a distinctive feminine alternative to The Silver Apples Of The Moon if they had ever beenpresented in phonographic form. This is history in the remaking.This spring Finders Keepers Records are proud to release an archival project that not only redefines musicalhistory but boasts genuine claim to the overused buzzwords such as pioneering, maverick, experimental,groundbreaking and esoteric, while questioning social politics and the evolution of music technology aswe’ve come to understand it. To describe this records as a game-changer is an understatement. Thisrecord represents a musical revolution, a scientific benchmark and a trophy in the cabinet of counterculture creativity. This record is a triumphant yardstick in the synthesiser space race and the untold storyof the first woman on the proverbial moon. While pondering the early accolades of this record it’s dauntingto learn that this record was in fact not a record at all… It was a manifesto and a gateway to a new world,that somehow never quite opened. If the unfamiliar, modernistic, melodic, pulses, tones and harmonicsfound on this 1975 live presentation/grant application/educational demonstration had been placed in aphonographic context alongside the promoted work of Morton Subotnick, Walter Carlos or Tomita thenthe name Suzanne Ciani and her influence would have already radically changed the shape, sound andgender of our record collections. Hopefully there is still chance.

Release:2017 / UK – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Combining all the traits of an international superhero or intrepid comic book adventurer, the true identity, whereabouts and history of the spectacular Italian composer known as Gerardo Iacoucci has been a mystery to record collectors for many years. As a result of the best efforts of secretive archivists and DJs as well as and the overprotective force field that surrounds the clandestine world of Italian library music, the commanding experimental psychedelic pop music made singlehandedly by this early pioneer of the anti-genre time after time rises to the top of collectors’ want lists, commands huge ransom notes, ignites dancefloors and decimates genre tags before returning to its mythical status as one of the kings of the underworld without removing his mask. Despite the fact that original Italian copies of records by Gerardo Iacoucci are amongst the rarest, enigmatic fixtures of European psychedelia, his music simply refuses to be ghettoised and as the name of this album suggests the history of this artist reads like the memoirs of a genuine musical adventurer as well as a well-travelled prophet of experimental music and unsung pillar of Italian jazz and sound design. Recorded in early 1970, Iacoucci's wide-eyed L'Avventura suite spanned 6 sides of loud, heavyweight monophonic vinyl for Romano Di Bari's Deneb label and created an epically detailed blueprint for independent mood music companies whilst sharing release schedules with likeminded workaholics Alessandro Alessandroni and A. R. Luciani. However, Gerardo's adventure didn't begin here…

Release:2016 / EU – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
From his seemingly bottomless well of unreleased conceptual pop, jazz and pioneeringelectronic experiments, Swiss composer Bruno Spoerri, in conjunction with long termcollaborators Finders Keepers, finally unleashes the master tapes to an obscure 1972 featurelength documentary called Langstrasse Zwischen 12 und 12 (Long Street Between MiddayAnd Midnight). Directed by Gianni Paggi (who had also worked on Swiss pop music weeklyHits A Gogo) and radio host and author Max Rüeger this seldom seen film studied the starkcounter balance between the lifestyles of the inhabitants of Zurich’s famous Langstrasse - avaried and vibrant stretch of road in centre of the city which played host to a unique mixof contrasting cultural and social groups, working class families and energetic creatives.Langstrasse Zwischen 12 und 12 explored real-life stories of family run businesses, schools,nine to five commuters and the contrasting nightlife scene including the city’s liberal afterhours red light district. To accentuate the ironic and slightly schizophrenic nature of theproduction Paggi and Rüeger called upon Spoerri as one of the country’s most versatileinstrumental composers to share a first-hand impression of the area as a local himself.Exploring a wide range of musical disciplines from early modified synthesisers to rock rhythmsvia found sounds, jazz, folk and traditional Greek music, Spoerri successfully infused vibrantbursts of sonic colour into the monochrome imagery of the programme, creating a floatingnarrative undercurrent quite unlike anything heard on regular Swiss TV during the era.In scoring such a project to a precise deadline Spoerri would require a trusted group ofregular musicians, many of whom would appear on collectable records by Swiss groupssuch as The Metronome Quintet, The Rainbow Orchestra and Emphasis. As a leader ofThe Metronome Quintet himself Bruno was comfortable working alongside reliable membersFernando Vicencio (sax and flute), Ueli Staub (vibes, keys and percussion) and drummerRolf Bänninger - who’s prominent playing is best exemplified on the previous FindersKeepers/Spoerri LP Hommage Au Fromage. Other players on this session include Latinmulti-instrumentalist Antonio Conde who had simultaneously bonded with Vincencio in thejazz rock super group The Rainbow Orchestra under famous guitarist/soundtrack composerPierre Cavali (see record FKR008). Another Cavali/Vincencio collaborator to appear on thisalbum is pianist Renato Anselmi who would later join both musicians in the band Emphasis -vital to this session Renato Anselmi would provide extra keyboards to Bruno’s experimentaland textural synthesiser tones. Later in the 1970s Spoerri would also enlist Anselmi to playon the soundtrack to art house film Lilith (recently sampled by US rapper Jay Z. For hardcorecollectors of European jazz the appearance of trumpeter Franco Ambrosetti might warrantsome deserved attention. A firm fixture on the Swiss jazz scene alongside Spoerri andregularly playing with George Gruntz, Ambrosetti’s earlier work on records alongside playerslike American sax man Shahib Shihab or French saxophonist Barney Wilen remain some ofthe most expensive original items on the collectors market. The final icing on the cake for thissession would be the inclusion of Switzerland’s leading harmonica player Heinz Pfenninger,a welcome addition to the group having played with Ueli Staub in the award-winning RobyWeber Quartet (Pfenninger can also be heard playing bass alongside Rolf Bänninger onSpoerri’s aforementioned Hommage Au Fromage LP).Like most of Bruno’s releases on Finders Keepers Langstrasse Zwischen 12 und 12 sees theartist explore unique new territories, combining the skill of incredibly talented musicians andcombining his own discoveries in the realms of electronic music and his own brand of postconcrètefound sound application which would appear on his rare postcard records made forindustrial companies utilising wristwatches, pneumatic drills and forklift trucks as essentialparts of his orchestral palette. This early 70’s glimpse into Spoerri’s narrative compositionfor the small screen captures an important European artist-cum-scientist treading a seldomtrodden path between experimental pop, jazz and music technology in its infancy.

Genre:Electronic / Dance
Part outsider electronic album; part physiological experiment; part work of art; this is not your average new age record. You won’t find any cosmic or spiritual connotations between the unsupposing and briefly annotated gatefold covers. This is an accidental new age record. It wasn’t designed to evoke images of far away landscapes or induce meditative states; rather it is the end result of a personally developed meditative technique called Alpha Mood. The brainchild of a reclusive Israeli multimedia artist with a fascination in philosophy, technology and sound by the name of Ami Shavit, In Alpha Mood is the result of a personal and artistic exploration to both overcome a personal trauma and push the boundaries of a fledgling physiological understanding whilst utilising the burgeoning domestic synthesizer technology of the late 60s and early 70s

Genre:Film / TV
Unanimously considered amongst fans of all strains of alternative pop culture the flamboyant cinematic masterpiece known as Alejandro Jodorowsky’s Holy Mountain can proudly claim, amongst all its other accolades, one of fantastique cinema’s greatest red herrings of all time. In the interest of anti spoilerism we are not referring to the film’s reconstituted plot here (recycled from René Daumal’s 1952 fictitious mountaineering journal) but rather the film’s devious inverted end title sequence, a murky pond which harbours the true crimson fish that has quite frankly wasted record collectors time for over four bloody decades. The immortal, fatal, deviously distracting and plain EVIL strap line that reads “Forthcoming soundtrack available of Abkco Records and Tapes” has served a repeat menu of wild goose chase soup followed by red herring salad served in half a camouflaged curveball with a glass of muddied water in your own personal smoked screen booth for most of our adult lives. The gift that keeps on not giving. For those of us addicted to black plastic circles, if there was ever to be a sequel to The Holy Mountain then a two hour title card reading “we decided not to release the soundtrack to the original film” would have saved a lot of time, fingertip skin and want list paper and ink… In fact, in keeping with Jodorowsky’s grand vision for the film, this rug puller was (unbeknown to him) the final illusion.If it wasn’t for Jodorowsky and Allan Klein’s thirty-something-year “temporary stand-off” (leading to release schedule cancellation) we might have already got over how amazing this soundtrack is. In fact, with all its quite unrequired Beatle connection hyperbole it might be in your old dad’s all-time favourite lists as the only token alternative/soundtrack/jazz record he ever bought, and you might have learned to hate it. But that never happened, and as the forbidden fruit idiom commands THIS IS NOW YOUR FAVOURITE LP OF ALL TIME AND YOU CANT LIVE WITHOUT IT. So we need to write a press release. One which will sound like we are talking about seven different albums in one and for those that have seen the film, that will make perfect astrological sense. Where do we start? The unreleased soundtrack to the most fantastic transcendental spiritual cinematic explosion of our time? The lost Don Cherry album? The missing Jazz Composers Orchestra album featuring Charlie Haden, Carla Bley and Frank Lowe? The Elephant’s Memory soundtrack follow-up to Midnight Cowboy? The lost soundtrack album secretly funded and A&R’d by John Lennon and Yoko Ono? The music to the film that George Harrison was sacked from because he didn’t want us to see his butt hole? The orch rock LP made by the arranger of the collectable Mandrake Memorial prog pop LP? Walter Sears’ undiscovered studio experiments? The record that The Beatles’ managers didn’t want you to hear? The true axis between New York psych rock, free jazz and Swedish prog rock? All are relevant, all are true and all clearly outlined in liner notes exclusive to Finders Keepers’ bespoke vinyl pressing of this grail-trail double-slab of psychedelic vinyl film history. Featuring the original cues, composed-to-scene, and mastered from the original studio master tapes via Record Plant, A&R, Sear Sound and Electric Ladyland and housed in exclusive packaging based on one of the rarest European posters for the film’s original release.This first edition also includes exclusive interviews and lost information from Neneh Cherry, Ronald Frangipane and the Swedish members of the original Don Cherry Holy Mountain line-up Bengt Berger and Christer Bothen alongside commendable quotes from Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth) and Kieran Hebden (Four Tet). Alongside this release Finders Keepers, in collaboration with ABKCO will also present special vinyl editions of Jodorowsky’s other two Allen Klein produced films, El Topo and The Dance Of Reality, housed with the same unique design features and liner notes driven by the label’s long-term commitment to a project that has taken over a decade to release. The wait has been too long. Zoom back camera! Break the illusion and enjoy your salad.

As an artist whose name has become mutually synonymous with the instrumenthe plays Bruce Ditmas is a very unique heavy musician from one of those specialtightknit communities that tried (and almost succeeded) to change the facade ofprogressive pop music and jazz via musical technology.Raised in Miami (an unknown incubator for future synthesists) Bruce carved theimage of a teen prodigy playing jazz drums at the most exclusive Miami Beachhotels. After being whisked off to New York by none other that July Garland hebecame immersed in free music, recording compositions by Annette Peacock andCarla Bley before setting up house with vocal artist Joan La Barbara (later Mrs.Morton Subotnick) in 1975, who, via her own label, encouraged Bruce to pursuehis very specific experiments in heavy electronic rhythms.This LP is compiled from the solo Moog Drum compositions from his only twoalbums both released in 1977 using a Mini-Moog (donated by Gil “Hendrix” Evans),an Arp 2600 and a wide range of treated percussive instruments that littered thisenfant terrible’s bedroom floor throughout the 1970s. A later pillar of the Enja andECM community, Bruces later work in TV, film, sound sculpture and free music stillrenders truly unique recording to this very day.Meet your new favourite drummer, and the best Moog Drum record in your wholecollection.

Finders Keepers Records are happy to announce a new creative archive based relationship with Suzanne Ciani, a very unique and celebrated experimental composer in her own right, who, as one of the very few female composers in the field (Save Chicago's Laurie Spiegel, Italy's Doris Norton, and a post-op Walter Wendy Carlos) turned a hugely significant wheel behind-the-screens of many early computerised music modules throughout the 1980s dating back to her formative years studying at Stanford's Artificial Intelligence Labs in the early 70s. Suzanne Ciani's detailed and academic approach to music and electronics coupled with an impeccable sense of timing and melody (and a good sense of humour) shines throughout this new collection of previously unreleased recordings.

The mythical, mysterious and misfiled transcription disc of a lost Italian demonic religious rock opera recorded at Pierre Umiliani’s Sound Workshop by Stefano Marcucci - beat group veteran, Fernando Arrabal collaborator and Libra affiliate.Featuring members of the wider Casa/Ducros family and future Federico Fellini collaborators, this previously commercially unavailable mini-LP features embryonic Minimoog, ecclesiastical organs and chorus alongside a tight psych funk rhythm section from Italian library music’s golden era.Imagine Jean Pierre Massiera’s Visitors restoring a scene from Juliette Of The Spirits, backed by a skeleton staff from Jean-Claude Vannier’s Chorale des Jeunesses Musicales de France on a foreign exchange program; on Halloween, in the Vatican…Continuing our mission to shine light on the genuine anomalies of 70’s Italian production music, Finders Keepers Records resurrects another unlikely transcription disc from the vaults of one of Rome’s most esoteric library music archives. This bizarre one-off theatrical project, composed and recorded at Umiliani’s studio, was commissioned for a short-run demonic religious performance entitled Tempo Di Demoni, Papi, Angioli, Incensi E Cilici under the musical direction of former Italian psychedelic beat-group member Stefano Marcucci.Instantly recognised by Flower Records founder Romano Di Bari as having commercial potential beyond its handful of church and small theatre performances in the early months of 1975, Marcucci agreed that they should commit these bizarre recordings to vinyl as a form of preservation with hope of attracting a wider commercial audience through Di Bari’s Television and Films synchronisation contacts. Sitting slightly ajar to the custom-made projects of its label bedfellows (swapping schedules with experimental theme-music by Alessandro Alessandroni, Gerardo Iacoucci and Anthonio Ricardo Luciani) and confusingly sharing an identical catalog number to another collectable Flower release called Ritimico by (close friend) Paolo Ferrara (LEW 0551) this album has slipped under the radar of many Library label completists over the years attracting confusion, scepticism, polarised opinion but nothing short of astonishment at the bizarre hidden synth-ridden psychedelic concept pop found behind some of the most striking duo-tone artwork to come out of Italy’s most experimental era.

Imagine, if you will, a foreboding homemade electro-acoustic, new age, synth driven, proto-techno, imaginary world music Portastudio soundtrack for a Polish-made animated fantasy based on a Finnish modern folk tale and created for German and Austrian TV, composed in 1982 by two politically driven post-punk theatre performers from a shared house in Leeds!To even the most perspicacious and adventurous of alternative music fans the genuine bloodline of this previously unreleased record already begins to sound like an entire record collection in one sitting. It would be surprising if this project’s ambitious and exotic credentials didn’t tick at least one box on your musical matrix and without one drop of unnecessary nostalgic hyperbole this project already sounds like the perfect fantasy record that you’ve never heard. Alternatively we could just say The Moomins and, for many, things would instantly begin to make perfect sense.From the same social landscape as Gang Of Four, The Mekons and Impact Theatre Co-operative - armed with a Wasp synthesiser, an ocarina and a cassette of the Robinson Crusoe music taped off the TV, Graeme Miller and Steve Shill used minimum means for maximum mayhem, instilling over 35 years of dreamlike illusory fuzziness and freakiness into the memories of a generation of school age TV addicts waiting for the next 5 minute fix of outernational fuzzy felt folklore. Collected here, all in one place for the first time, Finders Keepers in close collaboration with the original composers finally bring the original homemade micro-melodies and reintroduce them to a musical landscape where fans of vintage electronics, concrète tape effects, pocket percussion and domestic synths are finally ready to be reunited with the magnetic music of Moominvalley.

The unreleased Euro pysch score to the French/Portuguese X-rated version of The Devilsmeets The Witchfinder General! Synchronised by Spanish anti-establishmentarian,sexual liberator, die-hard independent filmmaker and unrepentant voyeur Jess Franco(Vampyros Lesbos/De Sade). Composed entirely by French composer Jean-BernardRaiteux aka Jean-Michel Lorgere (Sinner/Harlem Pop Trotters) and presented here infull soundtrack form for the first time.Proudly claiming the dubious accolade of the Spanish sexploitation version of TheDevils as the distributor’s most bankable asset, this previously banned 1973 Europeanwitch flick would rip the art house facade from Ken Russell’s well polished box officesmash and push the envelope way beyond the closet titillation of the gentrified newwave controversy seekers. Delivered on a comparable shoestring budget as the 55thfeature in Jess Franco’s filmography of approximately 203 completed movies, TheDemons (Les Démons), directed under the Anglicised pseudonym Clifford Brown, tookmany of the Franco’s sexually stylistic watermarks (epitomised in his Vampyros Lesbostrilogy) adding witchcraft, possession and nunsploitation against a rural Mediterraneanbackdrop before disappearing into the woods. Whilst clearly taking inspirational plotcues from Michael Reeve’s The Witchfinder General (UK 1968) and drawing comparisonswith scenes from Eiichi Yamamoto’s Belladonna Of Sadness (Japan 1973) this B-Moviereduction of Franco’s wide palette of colourful ingredients has in recent years providedenthusiasts/champions/defenders of the workaholic horrotica bastion with a rare andtreasured addition. Future-proofed by an essential component, omnipresent in Franco’sfilms, it is the mysterious commercially unobtainable soundtrack music that cementsthe unwaning interest in his risqué brand of unconventional shock/schlock sinema (nothindered my the enigmatic title card misinformation that often surrounds the originalcomposers) and the music herein that has given Franco’s harshest critics a secondchance/reason to reevaluate this man’s unapologetic art.Following on from Finders Keepers previous expanded release of Bruno Nicolai’sscore for Franco’s 1970 adaptation of De Sade (FKR069) this record stands as anothertribute to Franco’s life which he lived through the mechanisms of a camera withrelentless zeal and a passion to challenge every aspect of movie making along the way.UNDERground, OVERambitious, RIGHT on, LEFTfield, BELOW the radar but ABOVEcriticism. INdulgent and OUTrageous, but never middle of the road, Jess Franco wasmany things but he wasn’t pretentious and never delivered art for art’s sake and I feelhonoured to have spent time with him. Franco was in fact a realist, he kept both feetfirmly on the ground and a keen eye behind the right side of the lens and if Jess didhave any demons his films were his exorcisms, the critics were the bloody judges andhis legacy (through the medium of X-rated cinema of variable quality) is immortal.

Previously unreleased schizo post-punk/Moogy folk score to 1983 British TVScouse-ploitation drama One Summer (remember Billy and Icky?) from the vaultof Kate Bush, Serge Gainsbourg and David Bowie’s best-kept secret session manAlan Parker.From the one-man studio vault of the guitarist who adorned Histoire De MelodyNelson, The Kick Inside AND Diamond Dogs comes a post-punk, 80’s TV soundtrack that aims to restore the unforgettable names of Billy and Icky in your nostalgic consciousness while liberating lost music of a significant unsung UK composer.Bringing back fractured memories of Scouse teenage rebellion, sports casualweekend wear, chip shop violence and escape missions to the Welsh Valleys(where baby birds are fed Mars Bars and shoplifting is the local currency), the series One Summer made an indelible impression of gritty realism, tragic heartbreak and woeful hope in the hearts of a dumbstruck generation in 1983.Inducing abject fear in protective parents and a street smart swagger amongstclued-up youths, this adaptation of a coming of age pastoral thriller by a reluctant Willy Russell broke new boundaries pinpointing a cultural teenage void between post punk activism and the acid house years while arguably giving Thatcherite telly addicts a tiny kick up the arse.Scored by legendary KPM/De Wolfe library musician Alan Parker, a renownedsession player for Serge Gainsbourg, Kate Bush and Bowie (amongst many more)this score retains a genre defying personality, pinpointing the stylistic essence of the era while successfully switching from barren Rumble Fish funk, pastoral Moog noodlings, Pentangular folk, 80’s post-punk rhythms with hints of dubby melodica/ harmonica. Composed to cue for the short five-part series (that TV commissioners were too scared to revisit), Parkers bursts of self-propelled small screen scoring came in one to two minute spells allowing Finders Keepers to comfortably fit the entire soundtrack.

Having worked closely withJean Claude to leave no stone unturned both label and artist were shocked anddelighted to be given what turned out to be further insights in to the musical ideasand ambitions of the 29-year-old composer during those mythical studio sessionswhich occurred a few months after the release of his seminal work on Histoire DeMelody Nelson.The original L’Enfant Assassin Des Mouches LP has been the source of inspirationand awe for artists of all disciplines, critics and connoisseurs alike while retaining afirm fixture in many a tome and top ten, accounting for indispensable moments inavant-garde pop and experimental rock music and (with FKs repressing scheduleas testimony) continues to gain momentum. The fact that these masters weredubbed to a separate master tape as a proposed aborted major label singleindicates that they were the first (and most exciting) tracks to emerge from theflamboyant visionary sessions which eventually trickled out on small independentFrench label stimulating record collector nirvana in the process.Including new unheard instrumentation, alternative arrangements and mix boardlevels, this special limited release comes packaged in authentic 1970’s promo bagartwork and marks the first in a series of new vintage Vannier projects extractedfrom a new vault of genuinely, previously “lost” materials.

From the same vibrant cinematic landscape of 70s studio supergroups as Goblin, ThePawnshop, The Feedback and The Braen’s Machine comes The Magnetic System -the Italian incognito dream team comprised of Milano prog keyboardist Vince Temperaand Cinevox sibling Franco Bixio and launched the career of Video Nasty maestroFabio Frizzi. Bridging the void between Giallo jazz bass driven prog and the arrival ofhome studios and synthesisers, the omnipresent film music of The Magnetic Systemmarked a sea change in Italian genre film music, promoting melodic electronics to theforefront of Italian pop culture and pre-empting the first murmurs of Italo disco andsynth-pop. Sharing session musicians, studios and release schedules with many ofthe aforementioned luminaries, Bixio, Frizzi and Tempera’s magnetic powers continueto attract musicians and aficionados of discerning sight and sound.Masterminded in the mid-70s at the apex of Italian film music’s most exciting transitionalperiod, The Magnetic System was created to encapsulate the combined efforts of threeof the country’s most prolific and adventurous soundtrack composers in an attemptto retarget their lauded behind-the-scenes personas towards the Italian commercialinstrumental pop market. In the early 1970s with a climate that nurtured instrumentalrock such as the work of Franco Battiato, Sensation’s Fix and Le Orme, the soundtrackspecialist label Cinevox (founded by Cesare Andrea Bixio) identified opportunitieswithin their roster and pressed up a string of non-cinematic psychsploitation bandslike The Motowns and Cherry Five, finally finding chart success with the rebrandedwriting team known as Goblin. By 1977 the unison and group christening of FrancoBixio, Fabio Frizzi and Vincenzo Tempera aka The Magnetic System would join a list ofretitled outfits like The Pawnshop (featuring Allesandro Allesandroni, Giuliano Sorginiand Giulia De Mutiis), The Braen’s Machine (featuring Allesandroni and Rino De Filipi)and The Group (a drum-heavy version of Morricone’s Gruppo di Improvvisazione diNuova Consonanza), all of whom took brief hiatuses from their soundtrack and librarymusic day jobs to throw overqualified prog pop on the commercial craps table. Theunfortunate low demand for these ambitious unchartered excursions resulted in smallruns, which (with time as a healer) would cause future record collectors to salivate- the one and only 7” single by The Magnetic System being no exception to thisphenomenon. Also experimenting under further alter egos such as the Day-Glo Fruit OfThe Gum and the Spaghetti Western-cum-disco Benjamin Franklyn Band, the group’sthird moniker The Magnetic System specifically showcased the trio’s more aggressive,brooding and heavier sound in comparison to its sister groups. This compilation gathersa wider selection of the trio’s compositions that fall within the stylistic parameters ofThe Magnetic System’s creative blueprint; culling drum-heavy synthesised psychedelicsoundtracks with sympathetic leanings to the white funk/cosmic disco murmurings ofthe era

Meet Stone. The trailer says it all. A deep Australian drawl narrates the scene over a psychedelic swamp-funk rhythm section doused in electronic percussion and treated keyboards. “Stone Is A Trip… The grave diggers are on the move – a new breed of motorbike gang” The screen fills with images of slo-mo bike accidents, hallucinogenic trips and a death defying cliff stunt which could easily mistaken for a doppelganger scene in Psychomania. “Vietnam veterans with their own style of life, their own rules, their own religion.” The scene swathes to a satanic ritualistic burial at the hands of a denim-clad crew of outlaw bikers with strangely familiar faces.To many global record collectors, DJs, music producers and general retrophiles living outside of Australia “Stone” was primarily known for its electronic sound effects, psychedelic guitars, cosmic soundscapes and funky bass lines… In the 80s and 90s, before the global DVD boom, Stone to many people was first and foremost a Soundtrack… The kind of soundtrack that makes you wish you could see the film but it’ll probably never happen. The LP artwork alone was beyond enigmatic with its contradicting embroider logo (designed by sandy) alongside its striking futuristic airbrushed chrome insignia (designed by comic artist Peter Ledger and realised by airbrush whizz Errol Black). The huge parade of brand new Kawasaki bikes inside the gatefold looked like something from the future compared to the classic full-dresser Harleys from the American Hells Angels movies. And when the needle drops into the groove and the freakish blend of didgeridoo and Moog (played by Johnny ‘Didge’ Matthews and synth expert Andy Cohan) blended with unidentified clicks belches and pops fly out the speakers it is literally impossible to put a date, never mind a story line, to this acid fuelled soundscape. The use of confusing and contradicting musical influences alongside bizarre noises is actually the secret sauce in this concoction and when the swampy psychedelic funk rock rhythm section kicks-in you are left with a 45 minute programme of skewed. Forward-thinking avant-pop that would stylistically fill a very lonely section in the record shop racks. There are not many records quite like Stone.

Teenage movie maverick meets synth scientist for bespoke Belgian B-movie. One of the rarest vinyl horror soundtracks of all time, 1983’s The Antwerp Killer is the rest of the remarkable homemade electronic experiments of the wunderkind synth designer and his unison with a smart-talking teenage movie maverick to create something almost unfathomable in the process. Combining self-propelled punk attitude and uninhibited confidence, the hyper pro-active work of these DIY prodigies pinpoints an important era where youthful ambition and creative technology meet.By the age of sixteen Eric Feremans started building modulators and eventually his first proto synthesiser. Teaching musicians how this new technology worked became Eric’s mission. He found that in electronic music composition the understanding of the functioning of the machine is part of the musicianship. Without this they were just fooling around with new technology. By the early 70s Eric’s synths were becoming more and more complex and he even played a concert with Belgian electronica pioneer Karel Goeyvaerts. Eric decided to create his own school where he would teach his pupils to make build synthesisers and how to play them. The EEF (from Eric E. Feremans) was created. The build-your-own packages were created by volunteers and around 20 or 30 are said to have been made. After being a guest in a national television show the demand for courses exploded and Eric was lecturing nationally and internationally. Even attracting the king of the Amsterdam Mafia who would be driven down from Amsterdam with two body guards in his Rolls Royce every week.One day Eric gets a visit from a Luc Veldeman a sixteen-year-old with a manner of speech way beyond his age and larger then life projects. Eric was in the process of making Antwerp’s first crime movie called The Antwerp Killer. He had seen Eric play live and he wanted some of his music to be used as the score and to press as a album to promote the film. Upon their first meeting Veldeman wanted a tape to convince his financial investors. Eric gave him one of the rare recordings he had made with the synthesizer. A session he had just recorded upon installing his new studio; a session, according to Eric, that was the result of the pure joy he experienced of having such a wonderful sounding machine in his studio and the bottle of vodka he downed during the session. That session was cut up by Veldeman and it was turned into the soundtrack of The Antwerp Killer.Eric ended up playing a cop in the film and the film was the opening film of the Knokke Film Festival in 1983. It was honed away by the press and the audience. Bad acting, bad editing, bad script, cool soundtrack though. Veldeman was nowhere to be seen and everybody involved who had quit their jobs or studies to coöperate on this film or put in their money in it saw their hopes disappear. Veldeman had even rented all the film equipment with a false identity and then dumped it all in the canal after the shooting. When the cops eventually found out about his they weren’t even able to arrest him being a minor.A magnum opus of a true criminal and the synthesiser teacher of the Amsterdam Mafia King, The Antwerp Killer remains a prime document of the broody Belgian 80s and a heck of a soundtrack.

Genre:Film / TV
After a twenty-three-year hiatus, The Dance of Reality marks the triumphant return of Alejandro Jodorowsky, the visionary Chilean filmmaker behind cult classics El Topo and The Holy Mountain. In the radiantly visceral autobiographical film, a young Jodorowsky is confronted by a collection of compelling characters that contributed to his burgeoning surreal consciousness. The legendary filmmaker was born in 1929 in Tocopilla, a coastal town on the edge of the Chilean desert, where the film was shot. Blending his personal history with metaphor, mythology, and poetry, The Dance of Reality reflects Jodorowsky’s philosophy that reality is not objective but rather a “dance” created by our own imaginations.Written, performed and recorded by Alejandro’s son, the acclaimed actor, director and musician Adan Jodorowsky, Dance of Reality’s original soundtrack expands from gossamer folk acoustic guitar themes and solo piano compositions to rich cinematic orchestral arrangements echoing the work of John Barry and Ennio Morricone combined with extrovert narrative traditional pieces executed in the vein of Nino Rota. This LP contains the sixteen original compositions that make up the score for Alejandro’s seventh feature film which witness a return to the ABKCO film company who produced his underground classics El Topo and The Holy Mountain both of which Finders Keepers will also release the soundtrack LPs in this series of special vinyl editions.

Presented here as part of a dedicated series of Jodorowsky’s ABKCO film scores (alongside the previously unreleased The Holy Mountain and The Dance Of Reality), Finders Keepers bring you the score to the ultimate midnight movie and spiritual pseudo western an album that marks the exact pinprick where Alejandro Jodorowsky’s legacy first bled into the wider public consciousness. To affirm it’s 70?s rock credentials El Topo was originally imported by record producer Alan Douglas (Jimi Hendrix/The Last Poets/Miles Davis) then bought by American Beatles manager Allen Klein under the recommendation of John Lennon and Yoko Ono who shared enthusiasm with late night creatives like Dennis Hopper, Samuel Fuller and Don Cherry (who would later score The Holy Mountain). The acidic folk soundtrack was originally composed by Jodorowsky himself with his long-term Mexican collaborator Nacho Méndez with whom he had previously worked on the avant theatre production and LP H30. The following year Jodorowsky and Méndez’ short cues from the film’s production tapes were given to Ravi Shankar understudy (and George Harrison’s All Things Must Pass orchestrator) John Barnham to add extra score and post-production features making the lo-fi composed-to-scene themes into a viable commercial LP which would share release schedules with The Elephant’s Memory, Badfinger and Mary Hopkins – standing out like a sore thumb in a sea of well manicured talons.Taken from the original master tapes of engineer Brian Humphries (Black Sabbath/Pink Floyd) and presented with new artwork based on the rare European and South American poster artwork for the film’s original release with exclusive sleevenotes form Andy Votel and actress/director (and Jodorowsky friend/collaborator) Asia Argento this release is an essential companion piece to Finders Keepers exclusive Jodorowsky series and an enthralling and pop culturally significant release in its own right.

The music found here once soundtracked rebellious all-nighters and hotel bar rendezvous from films of which your parents might have not approved hence their scarce obtainability.

This workshop funk redefinesboth DIY and disco revealing a whole new side to world music and marks Pakistani pop cultures transformation from disposable and indefinable to indispensable.

As one of the most triumphant and beguiling directorial debut features to emerge from the fruitful Polish New Wave, Andrzej Zulawski's 1971 film Third Part Of The Night not only earned the 30 year old filmmaker a place next to other radical Polish directors such as Polanski, Skolimowski and Has, but also galvanised a creative bond with long running collaborator and composer Andrzej Korzynski, providing fans of foreign abstract/suspense cinema with a potent creative fusion to match those of Polanki/Komeda, Fellini/Rota and Argento/Goblin, amongst others.Duplicated and carefully remastered directly from Korzynski's original master!

Finders Keepers Records are happy to announce a new creative archive based relationship with Suzanne Ciani, a very unique and celebrated experimental composer in her own right, who, as one of the very few female composers in the field (Save Chicago's Laurie Spiegel, Italy's Doris Norton, and a post-op Walter Wendy Carlos) turned a hugely significant wheel behind-the-screens of many early computerised music modules throughout the 1980s dating back to her formative years studying at Stanford's Artificial Intelligence Labs in the early 70s. Suzanne Ciani's detailed and academic approach to music and electronics coupled with an impeccable sense of timing and melody (and a good sense of humour) shines throughout this new collection of previously unreleased recordings.

The previously unreleased spooked-out psychedelic-jazz score to 70s Czech's 'other' favourite teenage witch flick. Directed by Vacalav Vorlicek (3 Nuts For Cinderella/Who Killed Jessie?) from the studios that brought you 'Valerie and Her Week of Wonders', 'Daisies' and 'The Cremator.' Finders Keepers presents the entire studio sessions, plus psychedelic effects by Angelo Michajlov (Marta Kubisova's arranger) performed by the Karel Vlach Orchestra. Imagine Gary Bartz and Nucleaus meeting Swedish singer Doris at a Czech Pop Festival with the cast of H. R. Pufnstuff as the moody stage security!
