Strain, Crack & Break - Music From The Nurse With Wound List Volume One (France)
2LP | 2019 | UK | Original (Finders Keepers)
21,99 €*
Release:2019 / UK – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves, Electronic / Dance
After years of mythology, misinterpretation and procrastination Nurse With Wound’s Steven Stapleton finally chooses Finders Keepers Records as the ideal collaborators to release “the right tracks” from his uber-legendary psych/prog/punk peculiarity shopping list known as The Nurse With Wound List, commencing with a French specific Volume One of this authentically titled Strain Crack Break series. Featuring some Finders Keepers’ regulars amongst galactic Gallic rarities (previously presumed to be imaginary red herrings) this deluxe double vinyl dossier demystifies some of the essential French free jazz and Parisian prog inclusions from the alphabetical “dedication” inventory as printed the anti-bands 1979 industrial milestone debut.

When Steven Stapleton, Heman Pathak and John Fothergill’s anti-band Nurse With Wound decided to include an alphabetical dedication to all their favourite bands on the back of their inaugural LP the notion of creating a future record dealers’ trophy list couldn’t have been further from their minds. By adding a list of untravelled European mythical musicians and noise makers to their own debut release of unchartered industrial art rock they were merely providing a suggestive support system of existing potential likeminded bands, establishing safety in numbers should anyone require sonic subtitles for Nurse With Wound’s own mutant musical language. Luckily for them, the record landed in record shops in the midst of 1979’s memorable summer of abject apathy and its sound became a hit amongst disillusioned agit-pop pickers and artsy post-punks, thus playing a key role in the bourgeoning “Industrial” genre that ensued. On the most part, however, the list , like most instruction manuals, remained unreadable, syntactic and suspiciously sarcastic… As potential “real musicians” Nurse WIth Wound became an Industrial music fan’s household name, but in contrast many of the names on The Nurse With Wound List were considered to be imaginary musicians, made-up bands or booby traps for hacks and smart-arses. It took a while for the rest of the record collecting community to catch on or finally catch up.

Release:2010 / UK – Reissue
Genre:Movies / TV
This long-lost Parisian skin flick ‘Jeunes Filles Impudiques’ (aka Schoolgirl Hitchhikers) marks a particularly vulnerable period in the career of one of the most underrated and misunderstood directors to emerge from the rising smoke of the 1968 Parisian social explosion.
From a director with early links with the Paris underground, The Letterists, The surrealists, improv theatre and the free-press comes the reclaimed audio tracks from one of his rarest celluloid moments - but lets not confuse this for high-art. Finders Keepers make no bones, this is Jean Rollin’s maiden voyage into adult entertainment, DIrected under the pseudonym of Miche Gentil with a flimsy plot, questionable acting skills and an awesome little schizophrenic soundtrack.
The Brutus Drums percussion workout, the acidic folk pastoral movements, the Cul-De-Sac-esque jazz theme and the UK library sound-alike tile-tune all make up this 5 track veritable banquet of Gallic sleaze and second-class sound providing fans of cult cinema and b-music with an unexpected glimpse into the No-No generation at its most candid.
The interests of good taste have ensured that this long-lost movie has been buried for some 40 odd years with a musical score bursting to jump out of the can and down your tone arm which has now been made possible by a recently renovated negative print and new source material. These original Pierre-Raph (of ‘Requiem For A Vampire’ infamy) compositions from the publishing Library of Paris’ Musicale Editions Dellamarre (of Acanthus/Unity fame) come straight from Rollin himself as an introduction to Finders Keepers’ new Rollinade series documenting some of the finest musical moments of the director’s career as an avant-gardener, counterculture vulture and Gallic vamp-tramp all housed in their original hand-painted promotional artwork for the first time ever on vinyl.

pressing is the first-ever reissue of this elusive and essential LP.

20,99 €*
Release:2016 / UK – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
The lost synth manifesto that could have changed the course of electronic music history by the first lady
of modular synth history, Suzanne Ciani.
Finders Keepers invite you to witness the incredible first ever Buchla synthesiser concerts/demonstrations
providing a distinctive feminine alternative to The Silver Apples Of The Moon if they had ever been
presented 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 musical
history 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 as
we’ve come to understand it. To describe this records as a game-changer is an understatement. This
record represents a musical revolution, a scientific benchmark and a trophy in the cabinet of counter
culture creativity. This record is a triumphant yardstick in the synthesiser space race and the untold story
of the first woman on the proverbial moon. While pondering the early accolades of this record it’s daunting
to 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 harmonics
found on this 1975 live presentation/grant application/educational demonstration had been placed in a
phonographic context alongside the promoted work of Morton Subotnick, Walter Carlos or Tomita then
the name Suzanne Ciani and her influence would have already radically changed the shape, sound and
gender of our record collections. Hopefully there is still chance.

Genre:Movies / TV
From the cosmic creative musical mind of Swiss/Catalan studio whizz, Zeleste Nightclub engineer, Video Nasty film composer, occasional Jaume Sisa (Música Dispersa) collaborator and future electronic music therapy pioneer comes the synthridden vocoder-loaded 1984 sci-funk soundtrack to Barcelona’s daytime TV response to the universal E.T. phenomena. Get ready to meet your new alienígena amic and the unidentified flying object of thousands of Catalonian kids affections through the 1980s as Finders Keepers present J. M. Pagan’s lost lunar modular synth score to Kiu I Els Seus Amics (Kiu And Friends aka Kiu Is Your Friend).
From the same intergalactic phenomenon that brought such delights as Turkey’s exploito cash-in “Badi” or South Africa’s lo-rent hommage “Nukie” to our unregulated small screens, and the same craze which filled international airwaves with the likes of Extra T’S electro smash single “E.T. Boogie” or the million selling Columbian “Cumbia De E.T. El Extraterrestre” smash hit... not to mention a wide range of unofficial themetune cover versions from Holland, Austria, France and Germany (lest we forget an inspired late period Lee Scratch Perry Album) the creators of the movie which inspire the music on the album you are about to hear made no bones about their intergalactic muse. In 1982 the diaspora from Steven Spielberg’s small fictional mid-American neighbourhood that played host to everyones favourite torch fingered, three toed, Skittle scoffing space goblin touched virtually every family home in every major city resulting in one of the biggest cinematic merchandise phenomenas of the 21st century, resulting in an unexpected high-demand / short-supply play-off in which bootleggers, copyists and counterfeiters rose to the challenge like never before. At the precise moment that international audiences saw that cute little baldy poke his retractable neck around the corner and started stealing beer from the fridge, demanding long distance phone calls while circuit bending kids toys and frankly not looking after the plants... the human race was hooked! and we wanted more! more! more! When Spielberg regrettably told interviewers that he had no intention of making a sequel to E.T. The Extra Terrestrial, it instantly became open-season for the imitators... but way before somebody squeezedout, Mac & Me, ALF and The Purple People Eater a team of kid’s TV executives in Catalunya were ready to fill the widening gap in the market without haste. Created in 1983 by Luna Films and Televisió de Catalunya (TV3) and screened exclusively in Catalunya, Kiu I Els Seus Amics was one of the first E.T. “tributes” to make it out of the gate, and with a crew of five individual directors and writers to ensure that the five episode, one-off series hit the wave of phone-home-fever, “Kiu” has since remained a short but sweet micro-memory in the hearts of an entire generation of Catalonian cosmonauts.

Genre:Movies / TV
Imagine, if you will, a foreboding homemade electro-acoustic, new age, synth
driven, proto-techno, imaginary world music Portastudio soundtrack for a Polishmade 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.

A stricty limited edition (500 only) special winter wunderland edition of this
classic Finders Keepers release.

The crowning jewel in our dedicated issue series of the music from the cult
1983 television series. Available alongside a special limited edition fuzzy felt 7”

Genre:Movies / 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

Sounds Of The City (Suoni Di Una Citta)
LP | 2017 | UK | Original (Finders Keepers)
17,99 €*
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 genuine
Finders 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, mechanical
folk, 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 genuinely
unbelievable. 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.

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…

Genre:Movies / TV
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.

DIY disco from the Pakistani pop workshop
Never one to merely scrape the surface of a niche genre the Finders Keepers bloodhound digs deeper still into the core of the Indian subcontinent exhuming a concise party pack of opulent, off-centre Pakistani party targets driven by the pounding drum box rhythms of some of Lollywood pops most notorious studio scientists.
Disco Dildar features rare plugged-in proxy pop from some of the country’s lesser-known teen flicks spanning the late 1970s and 80s featuring drum heavy disco guesstimates built around multilingual lyrics celebrating Saturday nights, Disco Dildars and Hindustani Hogmanays.
These original synth-dripped 45 EPs are not from the front of the pile, nor the quirky result of some token musical tourism. 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. Again the Sounds Of Wonder team who bought you Thai Dai, Life Is Dance, Ilectro, Bollywood Bloodbath and others share equal doses
of the excitement, wonderment and bewilderment that comes when first needle-dropping these elusive gems.
Featuring the cut and paste, electronics and fuzz tones of flightless super heroes such as Tafo, Ashraf, Rana and Ahmed, whilst voiced by Mehnaz, Runa Laila and Queen Noor Jehan, it is plain to hear why the work of these DIY cosmic composers have eclipsed the collectable desirability of filmic fruits igniting dance floors and providing sample fodder of the wider continent for Wu-Tangular producers in their stride. This workshop funk redefines
both DIY and disco revealing a whole new side to world music and marks Pakistani pop cultures transformation from disposable and indefinable to indispensable. Form a circle Disco Dildar is now in rotation.

this incredible one-off solo album by mononymous Occitan language singer,

Captured via a humble makeshift studio set-up in a classroom in 1977, this
startlingly crystalline recording is one of the best examples you are likely to
hear, not shying from ambitious small string arrangements and intimate Gallic
jazz infusions this LP represents the quiet storm erupting from the pride and
protection of the ancient “romance” language known as Occitan, as spoken by

Rising out of the smokey Parisian Mai 68 shrapnel and claiming his stake as the first French vampire movie director, the inimitable father of European Horrortica, Jean Rollin (1938-2010) has smudged the painted face of surrealist cinema for over five decades. Dragging his roots from beneath the Letterist/Situationist movements, avant-garde theatre and Belgian fine art groups and entwining them around the minds of sexual revolutionaries, the European comic book cognoscenti and the Parisian free jazz and rock scenes, Rollin stopped at nothing to bring his macabre phantasies of zygotic vampyrism and backwoods blood cults to Gallic cinematheques and beyond.
Celebrating the immortal legacy of the late director Finders Keepers Records compile a detailed and comprehensive music cabinet of some of the finest musical moments from his initial directorial decade between 1968-1979, which provided a m much needed platform for the freak rock and free jazz that mirrored the distorted erotic visions in his own mind’s eye.

The missing component in the history of Turkish pop and one of the earliest
exponents 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 – helping
charge the climate for the birth of Anatolian rock. Then, from the sanctuary of his
private studio, he revolutionised the industry with his pioneering use of electronics
whilst hanging the sonic wallpaper in the living rooms of an entire generation of
telly addicts as in house composer of choice for Turkey’s first national television
channel TRT 1. Despite having a modest discography of only four 7” singles to his
name his influence is a major current that flows through over 50 years of Turkish
pop culture.
Compiled with unparalleled access to his private studio vault, Finders Keepers
proudly presents the first-ever collection of Gökçen Kaynatan’s pioneering
early electronic works. Featuring a selection of his experimental pop and rock
recordings dating from as early as the 1968 it features both of the highly sought
after 1 Numara singles – including a never before heard extended version of Evren
– as well as previously unheard archive material and songs recorded for and
broadcast exclusively on TRT 1 – most of them never to be repeated. In helping
Gökçen end his self-imposed 44-year exile from the record industry we can now
share with you the first of these important recordings from a genuine maverick who
helped shape the face of modern Turkish music, as well as shedding some light on
the rise of one of Anatolian rock and pops must fruitful and experimental periods

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.

Genre:Rock / Indie
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

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.

Perhaps one of the most unique and unlikely exponents of the highly collectible genres of ambient electronics, experimental tape-music and PINA (Private Issue New Age) this English born Jamaican raised sound designer, artist and existentialist furrowed his own ublinkered path through lesser chartered electronic fields for many moons before eventually teaming up with Bill Laswell (with Material) and Daevid Allen in New York to bring self-taught synthesis to Gong during their most oblique periods. Creating two impossibly rare self pressed vinyl LPs of conceptual inner-visionary outer-galactic angular tonal-dronal alien-art soundscapes in the process, the man known under figure shifting guises such as Dennis Wise/Denis Weise/Dr. Wise etc, combined a culture of sound system circuitry and radiophonic trickery adding Tea-pot poetry and sci-fidelity future-folk to his magnetic mesh! Presented here as the first ever dedicated ize Music collection this record combines compositions spanning 1979-1984 in both a solo capacity as well as small-group projects featuring members of the Emerald Web band.

Imagine a comic book where a Funkenstein monster called “Laraaji-Scratch Perry” invaded your record shelf while Komendarek and Holger Czukay kept lookout… Dr. Dennis might be the only one Wise enough to outsmart all of them with his powerful amorphous anaesthetic.

Karel Goeyvaerts was born in Antwerp in 1923.
After having received a humanistic education in Antwerp, he took courses at
the Lemmens Institute in Malines. From 1943 until 1947 he studied at the Royal
Flemish Conservatoire of Antwerp. From 1947 until 1950 he studied composition
with Darius Milhaud, music analysis with Olivier Messiaen and was in addition the
pupil of Maurice Martenot at the “Conservatoire
National” in Paris. In 1949 he was awarded the 2nd Prize for Composition and the
Lili Boulanger Prize at the same Conservatoire. He obtained the Halphen Prize in
1950.
During the winter of 1950-51, he wrote the “Sonata for two pianos”. Because of
its decisive and total stylistic novelty he designated this work as “Composition
No 1”, thus rejecting all his former work. With this sonata he created a structural
synthesis of the dodecaphonic system of Anton Webern and the teachings of
Olivier Messiaen and laid the foundations for generalized “punctual” serialism. He
demonstrated the application of this technique on the electronic medium in his
compositions Nrs. 4, 5 and 7. During the period 1951-1956, he influenced directly
through personal contact and intensive correspondence the musical creativity of
Karlheinz Stockhausen, whom he met during the summer-courses of 1951 in
Darmstadt. In 1953, Goeyvaerts and Stockhausen produced the first electronic
music in the studio of the NWDR in Cologne.
In 1 970 th e BRT app oin ted h im as pr oducer at th e “Institute of Psychoacoustics
and Electronic Music” (IPEM) in Ghent. Since 1974 he is in charge of the New Music
productions for BRT-3 in Brussels. Karel Goeyvaerts received several awards,
such as the Koopal Prize in 1967 and the Visser-Neerlandia Prize in 1969. He
also was given commissions by the BRT, the Festiv al o f Fland ers and the NOS
(Nede r- lan ds e Omroepstichting). His works have been performed in several
European countries, in Canada, the United States, Japan and at the festivals of the
“International Society for Contemporary Music” (ISCM) Brussels 1950, Oslo 1953,
Graz 1972 and Bonn 1977.

For the few people lucky enough to have heard the entire album in the five
decades since its release, the mythical POPERA COSMIC LP is now considered
to be France’s first dedicated psychedelic album and the shrouded blueprint for
the hugely influential Gallic concept album phenomenon that followed – including
SERGE GAINSBOURG’s HISTOIRE DE MELODY NELSON and GÉRARD
MANSET’s LA MORT D’ORION.
Spearheaded by FRANÇOIS WERTHEIMER (songwriter for VANGELIS, BARBARA
and BYG RECORDS), composed with future JODOROWSKY soundtracker
and genius all-rounder GUY SKORNIK, and based on an embryonic concept
co-conspired by a teenage JEAN-MICHEL JARRE, this instantly deleted 1969
recording is a true essential for any outernationalradicalised record collection.
With credentials that mark the birth of the cosmic funk (later disco) that helped
shape the influential sound of France today, this LP also includes the first pressed
instrumentals by members of SPACE ART, some of the best orch rock arrangements
by WILLIAM SHELLER (Lux Aeterna, Eriotissimo) and orchestrator PAUL PIOT
(Jean Rollin), as well as sitar psych benchmarks courtesy of uber legend SERGE
FRANKLIN – all pinned down by the rhythm section that would later be known to
prog aficionados as ALICE.
Subtitled LES ESCLAVES (The Slaves), this street theatre/rock opera (influenced
by the work of Julien Beck’s Living Theatre) now celebrates its 50th birth-day
standing firmly as a sonic tome to the birth of the no-no era (that rebuked
France’syé-yé” hamster wheel) leading directly to the thematic progressive
network of WAKHÉVITCH, MANSET and MAGMA while comprising an inter-Gallic
intergalactic super group from the early annals of France’s pop psych revolution.

Sharing social circles and spiritual ideologies with artists such as Iasos,
Connie Demby and Deuter, whilst splitting label release schedules with
Laraaji, Laurie Spiegel and Wendy Carlos, the unique Florida raised soul mate
duo known as Emerald Web released their privately pressed debut LP at an
axis where post-prog rock met proto-new age and ambient electronic music.
At the turn of the 1980s Bob Stohl and Kat Epple embarked on a ten-year spiritual
journey playing at planetariums and laser shows above the same
Californian silicon city that devised the early computer music software, unifying
their state of the art modular synth soundscapes and organic compositions
of flutes, bells and field recordings and furnishing a self-pressed cassette
tapeography of inimitable Emerald Web music for their self-funded Stargate
label. Having first communicated via the medium of music as flute players at
a South Florida jam session the future space music luminaries would be instrumental
in assisting synthesiser companies via feedback and consultancy in
developing instruments such as the Lyricon wind synth (favoured by Suzanne
Ciani and Bruno Spoerri) and various sponsored machines for Arp, Buchla,
EML, Computone and Orchestron. Named after a laser show formation and
combining influences from science fiction films, fantasy novels and a broad
musical spectrum including Tangerine Dream, Vangelis, It's A Beautiful Day
and Goro Yamaguchi, Bob and Kat would balance day jobs as synth programmers
as well as TV and film soundtrackers under the moniker BobKat
Productions (counting microscope nature documentarian Carl Sagan amongst
their clients) with evening synthesiser shows at galleries, spiritual centres and
even punk clubs. This compilation album comprises early tracks from Emerald
Web’s debut vinyl release and the following four rare cassette only albums on
Stargate Records from 1979-1982 before the band recorded their bestselling
(and Grammy nominated) albums for labels affiliated with Germany’s Kuckuck
and Larry Fast before Bob Stohl’s sad and untimely death in 1989.
Taken from original master tapes and recorded using revolutionary and prototypal
music technology many of these tracks have never been on vinyl or CD
until now. Finders Keepers are proud to have worked closely alongside Kat
Epple as part of an ongoing Emerald Web/BobKat archival project making

immaculate soundtrack music for Valerie And Her Week Of Wonders (Valerie A Týden

an ongoing discography of previously unreleased scores from the hugely creative “Film

risqué foreign fluff merchants, to finally find its rightful audience as a bona fide surrealist
cinematic masterpiece of world class standards, this 1970 film adaptation of Vítezslav
Nezval’s 1935 avant-garde novella (a film that literally cross-pollinated Max Ernst’s A

critical acclaim. Inspiring ongoing generations of visual artists, musicians, writers and
filmmakers - all of whom regard this truly individualistic and inimitable surrealist film
poem to be an indelible influence - Valerie continues to impregnate their daily artistic

Commonly considered to be the swansong of the CNW, following a huge paranoia fuelled
government film cull in 1969, owing to the fact it is last government approved feature film
of the post-Prague Spring era to combine the efforts of controversial filmmakers from
the FAMU (Filmová A Televizní Fakulta Akademie Múzických Umení) film school, Valerie
would also be the first of an exciting and essential new fertile strain of Czech made

series of presumed apolitical scary/fairy tales, directors like Jaromil Jireš and Juraj Herz

convert author called Vítezslav Nezval and based in a non-specific traditional era, the
previously censored filmmaker Jaromil Jireš was able to craft what many consider his

Enlisting the individual talent of some of the CNW’s most formidable stalwarts, in what

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 Devils
meets 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-Bernard
Raiteux aka Jean-Michel Lorgere (Sinner/Harlem Pop Trotters) and presented here in
full soundtrack form for the first time.
Proudly claiming the dubious accolade of the Spanish sexploitation version of The
Devils as the distributor’s most bankable asset, this previously banned 1973 European
witch flick would rip the art house facade from Ken Russell’s well polished box office
smash and push the envelope way beyond the closet titillation of the gentrified new
wave controversy seekers. Delivered on a comparable shoestring budget as the 55th
feature in Jess Franco’s filmography of approximately 203 completed movies, The
Demons (Les Démons), directed under the Anglicised pseudonym Clifford Brown, took
many of the Franco’s sexually stylistic watermarks (epitomised in his Vampyros Lesbos
trilogy) adding witchcraft, possession and nunsploitation against a rural Mediterranean
backdrop before disappearing into the woods. Whilst clearly taking inspirational plot
cues from Michael Reeve’s The Witchfinder General (UK 1968) and drawing comparisons
with scenes from Eiichi Yamamoto’s Belladonna Of Sadness (Japan 1973) this B-Movie
reduction of Franco’s wide palette of colourful ingredients has in recent years provided
enthusiasts/champions/defenders of the workaholic horrotica bastion with a rare and
treasured addition. Future-proofed by an essential component, omnipresent in Franco’s
films, it is the mysterious commercially unobtainable soundtrack music that cements
the unwaning interest in his risqué brand of unconventional shock/schlock sinema (not
hindered my the enigmatic title card misinformation that often surrounds the original
composers) and the music herein that has given Franco’s harshest critics a second
chance/reason to reevaluate this man’s unapologetic art.
Following on from Finders Keepers previous expanded release of Bruno Nicolai’s
score for Franco’s 1970 adaptation of De Sade (FKR069) this record stands as another
tribute to Franco’s life which he lived through the mechanisms of a camera with
relentless zeal and a passion to challenge every aspect of movie making along the way.
UNDERground, OVERambitious, RIGHT on, LEFTfield, BELOW the radar but ABOVE
criticism. INdulgent and OUTrageous, but never middle of the road, Jess Franco was
many things but he wasn’t pretentious and never delivered art for art’s sake and I feel
honoured to have spent time with him. Franco was in fact a realist, he kept both feet
firmly on the ground and a keen eye behind the right side of the lens and if Jess did
have any demons his films were his exorcisms, the critics were the bloody judges and
his legacy (through the medium of X-rated cinema of variable quality) is immortal.

Previously unreleased schizo post-punk/Moogy folk score to 1983 British TV
Scouse-ploitation drama One Summer (remember Billy and Icky?) from the vault
of Kate Bush, Serge Gainsbourg and David Bowie’s best-kept secret session man
Alan Parker.
From the one-man studio vault of the guitarist who adorned Histoire De Melody
Nelson, 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 casual
weekend 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 amongst
clued-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 renowned
session 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.

Limited edition for Record Store Day 2016!

Amazing master tape discovery of an original 1973 misplaced Jean Claude Vannier
single including alternate arrangements/instrumentation from the first days of the
L’Enfant Assassin Des Mouches sessions.
Late in 2015, exactly ten years since Finders Keepers Records first liberated
Jean Claude Vannier’s 1973 French Holy Grail concept LP L’Enfant Assassin Des
Mouches, the label was handed a very unexpected anniversary gift in the form of
a small clutch of lost Vannier studio master tapes. Having worked closely with
Jean Claude to leave no stone unturned both label and artist were shocked and
delighted to be given what turned out to be further insights in to the musical ideas
and ambitions of the 29-year-old composer during those mythical studio sessions
which occurred a few months after the release of his seminal work on Histoire De
Melody Nelson.
The original L’Enfant Assassin Des Mouches LP has been the source of inspiration
and awe for artists of all disciplines, critics and connoisseurs alike while retaining a
firm fixture in many a tome and top ten, accounting for indispensable moments in
avant-garde pop and experimental rock music and (with FKs repressing schedule
as testimony) continues to gain momentum. The fact that these masters were
dubbed to a separate master tape as a proposed aborted major label single
indicates that they were the first (and most exciting) tracks to emerge from the
flamboyant visionary sessions which eventually trickled out on small independent
French label stimulating record collector nirvana in the process.
Including new unheard instrumentation, alternative arrangements and mix board
levels, this special limited release comes packaged in authentic 1970’s promo bag
artwork and marks the first in a series of new vintage Vannier projects extracted
from a new vault of genuinely, previously “lost” materials.

Imagine a coven of Jodorowsky, Daevid Allen, Mr. Crowley, Rameses and Arthur Brownthen combine them into a one-man mutant magician and add the finest Australian synth duo since Cybotron. BEHOLD Geoff Krozier & The Generator.

This faithful reproduction of one of Australias rarest synthy post-prog vinyl artefacts bequeths the only recorded fruits of the precious magick months before Geoff Krozier’s untimely death in 1981. Combining shamanic spoken word with nodding kosmische instrumentation this album is fuelled by ARP/Roland/ETI (Aussie synth) technology and leaves fans of synthetic soundtracks, electronic experimentalism and stubborn synth pop salivating for more (and more there is).

Meet this Ex Kongress (NY punk band) collaborator, Sydney’s official 1980 Magician Of The Year and “the high priest of exorcism-rock” and watch him, and his trusty studio wizards, provide fans of Bruce Haack and Doris White with one of the most absurd electronic private press LPs to come from either end of the pointed planet.

Welcome to the house of the sun.

A genuine lost and unreleased full-length LP from one of the most mysterious figures of early Italian electronic sound and library music. A missing puzzle piece in the small discography of experimental tape and synthesiser music by the composer known only as Lamartine recorded (but never pressed) in 1974 by the archive that bought you the work of Daniela Casa and the wildest electronic experiments of Alessandroni, Giuliano Sorgini and Fabio Frizzi. Having sat in the can for over 40 years the similarities to the likes of Cluster, Tom Dissevelt and the Radiophonic workshop have yet to be recognised and celebrated.

Release:1977 / UK – Reissue
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

As an artist whose name has become mutually synonymous with the instrument
he plays Bruce Ditmas is a very unique heavy musician from one of those special
tightknit communities that tried (and almost succeeded) to change the facade of
progressive pop music and jazz via musical technology.
Raised in Miami (an unknown incubator for future synthesists) Bruce carved the
image of a teen prodigy playing jazz drums at the most exclusive Miami Beach
hotels. After being whisked off to New York by none other that July Garland he
became immersed in free music, recording compositions by Annette Peacock and
Carla 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 pursue
his very specific experiments in heavy electronic rhythms.
This LP is compiled from the solo Moog Drum compositions from his only two
albums 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 this
enfant terrible’s bedroom floor throughout the 1970s. A later pillar of the Enja and
ECM community, Bruces later work in TV, film, sound sculpture and free music still
renders truly unique recording to this very day.
Meet your new favourite drummer, and the best Moog Drum record in your whole
collection.
