Sun Ra - Nuclear War
Sun Ra
Nuclear War
10" | 2016 | US | Original (Modern Harmonic)
19,99 €*
Release:2016 / US – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Nuclear War,' Sun Ra's groove-infested x-rated warning, was an early '80s underground hit when it appeared on a 12-inch (plus the Saturn album 'A Fireside Chat With Lucifer'). Also featured are 'Outer Reach Intense Energy' and 'Twilight', originally unreleased works that sonically extend the radioactive theme. 'Outer Reach' (1977) is a soundclash of explosion and fallout, planetary screams, whistling missiles, eternal agony, detonation and damnation. 'Twilight', recorded at the Tip-Top Club in 1963, exhibits Sun Ra's xylophonic electric piano laced with clouds of mournful horns, teetering on madness, an impossible circus, bordering on redemption in the wilderness of the Sun's possible return.

Thunder Of The God

Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
A new Sun Ra LP touches ground in the earthly bins, 50 years after its creation!Sun Ra is still trying to get our attention 50 years after dispatching this transmission. Humanity’s path since then makes his message even more urgent today. Years after Herman Poole “LeSony’r Ra” Blount “left the planet” he’s still trying to reach us, to wake us up and to change our destiny.Sun Ra and the Arkestra weren’t a traditional studio band, and every star in the vast galaxy of their discography reflects this. The origins of these records can be hard to pinpoint at times, but when it comes to Thunder Of The Gods, it’s a bit easier. “Calling Planet Earth – We’ll Wait For You” was discovered on tapes from Ra’s, Universe In Blue, believed to be recorded in ’71. The raucous title track and “Moonshots Across the Sky” are unearthed from the ’66 Strange Strings sessions. Modern Harmonic has once again paired Ra’s sonic art with the visual art of “The Father of Modern Space Art,” Chesley Bonestell, whose 1952 work ”Formation of the Earth’s Continents” spralls across the front and back covers.

Attilio Mineo - Man In Space With Sounds
Attilio Mineo
Man In Space With Sounds
LP | 1962 | US | Reissue (Modern Harmonic)
35,99 €*
Release:1962 / US – Reissue
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Recorded in 1951 but only released in conjunction with the 1962 Seattle World's Fair as the musical accompaniment to the Bubbelator, a transparent, spherical elevator that carried as many as 150 passengers, Attilio Mineo's Man in Space with Sounds remains one of the most foreboding and complex records in the cosmic exotica canon. A dark, dissonant exploration of interstellar travel rooted in the avant-garde ethos of Cage and Stockhausen, this is music that's alien not only in its presentation but also in its orientation, fusing traditional instrumentation and sound effects to the point that one becomes indistinguishable from the other. Electronic elements pulse, hum, and sputter their way to complete domination of Mineo's sonic palette, depicting a bleak, sterile future where mankind gives way to machinery. Man In Space With Sounds is one of those legendary LPs. A rare souvenir of the 1962 Seattle Worlds Fair, this music served as the soundtrack to a ride called the Bubbleator, which transported fair visitors through an overview of the future, a technological utopia where science and space travel promised solutions to all of humanitys plights. Needless to say, that future never arrived and this music (actually recorded in the early 1950s) still sounds as futuristic today as it must have back then. The all-original compositions fall somewhere between nervous Philip Glass and 1950s sci-fi movie music, arranged with string orchestra in a sometimes rhythmic, polyrhythmic, or merely ambient cloud of odd electronic space noises. Despite its intended technological optimism, the music is quite heavy and menacing, and the future ultimately feels pretty scary. Regardless, this recording proves Attilio Mineo to have been an unbelievably progressive and underappreciated composer and arranger. The amazing aural and visual content of this endearing package transcend everything.
Sun Ra & His Myth Science Arkestra - The Lady With The Golden Stockings
Sun Ra & His Myth Science Arkestra
The Lady With The Golden Stockings
10" | 2016 | US | Original (Modern Harmonic)
19,99 €*
Release:2016 / US – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
The Lady With The Golden Stockings' possesses a propulsive, forthright groove. It's a decisive, deep-space, pre-dawn party jam, emitting golden sparks from the black hole center which begat 'Africa' and 'Watusa.' The B-side 'Spontaneous Simplicity' is a centerpiece among the gently blissful, tender works in the Sun Ra canon, heard here in a "missing link" super rare, compact version, freshly excavated from the '58-'59 era. This is the first appearance of the tune (pre-dating the stretched-out live version first known from 'Pictures Of Infinity' by a decade).

Sun Ra & His Arkestra
Rocket Number Nine
10" | 2016 | US | Original (Modern Harmonic)
19,99 €*
Release:2016 / US – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Among Sun Ra's most famous and jet-propelled anthems, 'Rocket Number Nine' is heard here in one of its earliest renditions, taped during a marathon session in June 1960 and including a staggering, swaggering, hip-bop beat. The track is joined by unknown recordings, including the driving, bossa nova-infused 'Ankhnation' from 1959 and 'Project Black Mass' from 1962.
