Ubique

25,99 €*
Release:2016 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
One more top mysterious trace from the Little Skull legacy. His LP "Ubique" (i.e. "everywhere" in Latin) marks the passing of time and people. This sense of loss is very present though the whole record. Not getting round to saying the things we meant to say and making sense of the leftovers. Screaming calmly, Dean Brown's Little Skull has shrunk even more until his head is almost just sore meat. This music sounds like it was made to soothe that inflammation.Currently living in the U.K, Little Skull is Dean's long running solo project. He is a player of all instruments even if it sounds like he is barely touching them and yet his obscure personal fingerprints are all over the place. His instinctive spontaneous playing finds ways to make them glow and fizz and ripple.The very complicated hand-made cover is astonishing. It incorporates religious imagery and patron saints expanding in space and creating a three-dimensional architecture filled with mysterious presences.Dean Brown is another New Zealander from Hamilton. A joke city to much of the rest of New Zealand but its feral mongrel out-of-it-ness is well known to those that have lived there. Dean coped with Hamilton through his bands Negative Eh and Nova Scotia and then buggered off to other cities and other countries.After several privately produced lathe-cut editions and a sold-out LP on Elica, "Ubique" is issued on LP in a one-time-only pressing limited to 250 copies only.

The Unattended Serge 1978 / Five Eveolutionary Things 1979

Release:2014 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
The 20 years old young David Chesworth experiments with the gigantic Serge synth that occupies half the room of the Latrobe University electronic studio. On the traces of pioneers such as Tristram Cary or Warren Burt, a new avant-garde is blooming in Sidney and Melbourne with bands like Severed Heads, The Makers, The Loop Orchestra and the like. David Chesworth will soon play a major role by coordinating the Clifton Hill Community Music Centre in Melbourne, by co-founding the cult label Innocent Records and by playing in acts such as Essendon Airport, The Dave and Phil Duo, , as well as conducting a solo career. He later will become one of the leading figure of contemporary sculpture and sound installations in Australia and abroad, a recognized and awarded composer with his The David Chesworth Ensemble.His first solo LP titled "50 Synthesizer Greats! " was released in 1979 and recorded in the same period as the LP presented here. While his first LP is a compilation of very short and eclectic tracks, "Five Evolutionary Things 79" and "The Unattended Serge 78" are structured as suites. Drawing skeletons for pop tunes to come, these minimal electronic pieces are at times very experimental but never brutal reminding the best moments of Udder Milk Decay's "Take A Teat" or sharing the apparent naïve melancholia of Harmonia's "Musik Von". Hints of elegant musique conrète ala François Bayle can be heard but also out of space blip beats as if Pietro Grossi or Erkki Kurenniemi went groovy.This beautiful unknown gem of ozzy underground is now available from your ears in an edition limited to 300 copies.
