Kannibal Komix
Kannibal Komix
LP | 1968 | EU | Reissue (Munster)
21,99 €*
Release:1968 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Rock / Indie
Released in Germany in 1968 under the band name Die Anderen and two years later
in the US as Kannibal Komix, this Giorgio Moroder-produced LP is a fantastic display
of the sort of sounds that made the late 60s such an exciting time. From the
outstanding garage-soul nugget 'Neurotic Reaction' to wonderfully arranged torch
songs and psych pop delights, the album's top quality recalls the work of The Bee
Gees during the same period. Presented in facsimile gatefold sleeve and pressed on
180g vinyl. Changing the original artwork of an album in certain territories was
common practice back in the day, but using different band names in different countries
is definitely something else. Die Anderen may or may not ring the bell, what about
Kannibal Komix or Apocalypse? Well, they are exactly the same artists. They got
together in the north of Germany after meeting in a talent show called Beat-Band-Ball
in 1966. Jürgen Drews met the members of Chimes of Freedom, the winning band,
and simply asked to join them as lead guitarist. Not long after, the manager renamed
the group as Die Anderen and sent them to the recording studio with the great
Giorgio Moroder, Ariola's in-house producer at the time, and a whole album was
made. This was obviously much earlier than Moroder's Munich Sound days, so there
are no traces of Italo disco gimmicks here but good portions of fuzzy guitars instead.
In fact, the anthemic Kannibal Komix song eurotic Reaction', produced by Moroder in
these sessions, deserves to be included on a garage compilation next to classics like
'Try It' by The Standells. Maybe this explains why they were spotted at Hamburg's Star
Club and picked by some American managers to sign a deal with Colossus Records.
Their almost perfect vocal harmonies and soft psych tunes spiced with a pinch of
fierce guitars made the band sound very interesting for the US market but the group
needed a new name: Kannibal Komix (or Apocalypse in other territories). A second
album followed but nothing really happened despite rising high expectations, and the
band split by the end of 1969, almost at the same time that their second album hit the
shops worldwide. While 'Neurotic Reaction' would be a perfect choice for an
European "nuggets" comp, there is much more to this album than just that standout
track. 'Rosy Rosy' leans towards prog sounds while keeping some solid pop elements
that recall the best of the British Invasion, 'Elenor' is an almost perfect match between
orchestral arrangements and the dramatic voice of band leader Jürgen Drews,
resulting in a three minute psych-pop delight. And the remaining nine tracks are
further top quality examples of the sort of sounds that made the late 60s such an
exciting time, from tender moments to raw energy, always imaginatively arranged and
performed.

28,99 €*
Release:1977 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Record Store Day 2020 Release.

Real high-energy rock'n'roll in its most potent form is best captured live and in the moment. Maximum thrills, minimum frills. In 1977, London's Warsaw Pakt took that premise one step further, recording their album live, straight through, direct to the cutting lathe. More than forty years later, "Needle Time" stands as one of the most authentic documents of the lean, visceral sound of London punk rock in its banner year. LP + 7" single pack reissued here on vinyl for the first time. Includes insert with extensive liner notes by Mike Stax (Ugly Things Magazine) and individually hand customized record cover. Exclusive RSD 2020 release.

HIGHLIGHTSAs a follow-up to our previous work reissuing the recordings of Pau Riba, key figure in Catalonia's counter-culture and music scene, Munster presents "Ars Erótica", one of his most sought-after singles, in the 50th anniversary of its original release.It includes alternative edits of two songs included on his classic album Dioptria/1, great examples of his psychedelic folk-rock style at the time that also picture the chilled-out vibe at the studio where Riba was backed by the band Om and some guest friends.DESCRIPTIONAs a follow-up to our previous work reissuing the recordings of Pau Riba, key figure in Catalonia's counter-culture and music scene, Munster presents "Ars Erótica", one of his most sought-after singles, in the 50th anniversary of its original release.This is a misterious and surprising record that was originally released on Concèntric and featured alternative edits of two songs previously included on his classic album Dioptria/1. 'Ars Erotica (non est mihi)' is edited to last just under 5 minutes, after taking out some verses and arrangements, although keeping intact its psychedelic folk-rock essence, with plenty of fuzz guitars.On the flipside we can find the possibly most interesting recording on this single, clearly showing what the vibe and work method were at the studio: all the musicians playing simultaneously in a chilled-out atmosphere. This edit of 'Rosa d'abril (l'amor s'hi posa)' starts right in the same point where the album edit finishes, with Pau Riba backed by the band Om jamming and some of the guest friends at the studio joining in, including the film producer and script writer Joaquim Jordà, who Riba wrote this song for.

21,99 €*
Release:2020 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
HIGHLIGHTSCommissioned by the acclaimed film director Roman Polanski, the English cult band Third Ear Band faced the challenge in order to insert a hell of imagination and creativity to his very own, author cinematographic version of Macbeth, a play by William Shakespeare.The resulting 44 minutes of imaginative sounds, divided in 16 outstanding pieces, is an astonishing example of an archaic, twisted, abstract psychedelia, rooted on medieval and classical textures. A Monster-Munster gem!DESCRIPTIONAs a luxurious aperitif for the future release of the "Elements" album (including its extra sauces), Munster Records bring us "Macbeth", the staggering soundtrack by the English band Third Era Band for a Roman Polanski's film, recorded and produced in 1971.A magical invitation urging the listener to dive into unsuspected regions of boldness, unpredictability, and an intimate abstract-folkster-experimentalism. According to the founding member Glenn Sweeney, "the music was called alchemical because it was produced by repetition". However, mind it, such repetition doesn't follow the samemusical structures of, let's say, Terry Rilley, Steve Reich or Philip Glass due to its indefinite nature of internal-twisted and tormented passages of a peculiar poetic enchantment.The band, formed in Canterbury, started in 1967 playing an oriental hypnotic-free-form-folk. Signed to the prosperous cult label Harvest, they debuted in 1969 with "Alchemy", an instrumental jazzy-psych improvisational album. A fully formed masterpiece came in 1970 on the already aforementioned self-titled opus, also known as "Elements". For "Macbeth", their third one, just the main chief Glenn Sweeney (assorted percussion) and Richard Coff (viola and violin) remained from the original four-piece line-up. It was recorded when half of the quartet - Richard Coff (viola and violin) and Ursula Smith cello) - had already departed, and they were about to record a third album entitled "The Dragon Wakes", which had promised to be a...

HIGHLIGHTSThis LP brings together for the first time all the songs comprised in the three singles published by Valencia'scult band Modificación in the early 70s as well as the remaining unreleased recordings from the samesessions, crafted under the influence of bands like Grand Funk Railroad, Iron Butterfly, Vanilla Fudge, Rare Earth, Led Zeppelin_Includes the legendary freakbeat number "Across the Time", that has found its rightful place, over the years,as one of the most admired and sought-after Spanish singles from that period.This is an accomplished portrait of one of the most legendary Spanish underground bands from those yearswhose fans, unable to find the elusive -and now very expensive- records, were crying out for an urgent reissue of their work.Extensive liner notes by the renowned specialist Vicente Fabuel and previously unseen pictures have beenincluded here, rounding off the release. The artwork featured on the cover is based on iconic graphic elements taken from promotional printed ephemera used by Modificación during those years.DESCRIPTIONThe group Modificación is a prime example of what 70s underground and prog rock meant on the Valencia scene. Bands encountered a series of obstacles when making their much freer and more versatile music, which was demanded by the international planet rock. These hurdles varied from the serious difficulty of recording modern andinnovative records, impositions by the record label and frequent desertion by band members to pursue interests that were more professional than artistic.The group's origins date back to early 1969, in Valencia's Ruzafa neighbourhood, with an average age of around 16 among its founding members. They adopted the name Modificación, an intriguing name that flagged up their creative intentions and interest in underground sounds, under the influence of bands like Grand Funk Railroad, Iron Butterfly, Vanilla Fudge, Rare Earth, Led Zeppelin_ While the bulk of the Valencia rock scene revolved aro...

Release:2020 / EU – Original
Genre:Pop
"Ishkode! Ishkode!" ("ishkode" means "fire" in the Native American Ojibwe language) is the album released by Jonathan Richman before his recent "SA!". It was originally released in the States on Cleveland's Blue Arrow Records in 2016. Richman's signature ingredients -acoustic guitar, minimal drums set-up, a few voices, his use of Romance languages_- combine once again across the album and subtle touches help him to strike a contemplative mood more than usual. Check `But Then Ego Went Away', with lyrics about meditation, or the closing track `Mother I Give You My Soul Call' introducing Indian instrumentation. As in previous works, Richman feels no shame in expressing his feelings openly in addition to continuing his very personal charming observations about the everyday life, as on `Wait! Wait!'. It is not difficult to imagine Richman performing some of the songs of the album, especially the almost hypnotic two first tracks, around a bonfire, surrounded by a bunch friends singing along, but we will always wonder if that is the fire to whom the album title refers... "Ishkode! Ishkode!" deserves to stand as a career highlight.

Genre:Rock / Indie
Décima Víctima were a Spanish band that, during their short-lived career between 1981 and 1984, developed a very personal sound reminiscent of Joy Division, TheCure and other British post-punk bands. Although commercial success evaded them, rarely has any Spanish band achieved such a high degree of quality and coherence in their music and personality.This LP contains previously unreleased tracks recorded by Décima Víctima in November 1983, one month before their last concert. Seven of these songs feature different lyrics to the ones later recorded for the "Un hombre solo" album. This is the way they performed them that night on the Rock-Ola stage, so this record can be considered, to some extent, an approximation to their last show and totheir powerful live sound.After many years, we've recovered a rehearsal session that we had recorded on an old cassette tape. It had originally been laid down on a four-track recorder but unfortunately the tape got lost.The story of these tracks goes back to the last weekend of October 1983, when we went to record at Paco Trinidad's family home in the mountains north of Madrid. It was unexpectedly cold that weekend and we weren't prepared for the drop in temperatures. We drove there surrounded by mist and before returning had to scrape the ice off the windscreen as best we could.Paco recorded our latest songs on a four-track tape recorder at the house. It was done live, except for extra takes of Lars playing the clarinet and some guitar details. The garage sound, as the name suggests, was achieved in the garage and an adjoining room where José Brena played the drums.I used to write most of the lyrics. It always took me a long time and with the chaos working outside Madrid for several months caused, I had only finished the lyrics to `Un hombre solo' and `Bajo un cielo abierto'. I used to hum the rest of the tracks during rehearsals, which was partially concealed by the echo effect over the vocals. Fortunately, Lars brought along the lyrics that were mis...
