Charles Ditto - In Human Terms
Charles Ditto
In Human Terms
LP | 1987 | EU | Reissue (Telephone Explosion)
24,99 €*
Release:1987 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves, Electronic / Dance
In the mid-80’s, an original form of music was discovered on the midi-capable little planet of Austin, Texas. At the age of 32, Charles Ditto would release his first solo album applying cutting edge computers and synthesizers of the era (Roland DX7, Roland MKS-20, Roland MKS-80, Sequential Circuits Profit 2000 along with a Macintosh SE), creating a unique and detailed world that was inspired by Cluster, Eno & The Residents. In Human Terms bridges the gab between contemporary classical and minimal pop. Rhythmic but melodically abstract. Microtonal and organic. Often described as experimental electronics, tone poems or Cyber-delicpsychotropic-avante-garde. In Human Terms, remains very emotion, deep and different. Ditto’s music imparts a new listening experience that is still somewhat indescribable today, but remains approachable and relatable.
“What makes Ditto’s music so strikingly different is his overt use of emotion, very descriptive melodies and deep atmosphere” Audio Magazine - August 1988
“If Erik Satie had midi gear” Keyboard Magazine - April 1988 “Brian Eno meets Seastones, but with more melody” Relix Magazine - August, 1988 “
Ditto’s choice of Synthesizer tones are at once both organic and unique” Electronic Musician - June 1988
Steve Roach - Structures From Silence
Steve Roach
Structures From Silence
12" | 2017 | US | Original (Telephone Explosion)
29,99 €*
Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Steve Roach is one of the defining American artists of new age music, perpetually on a quest for silence and the suspension of time in his music. “Structures from Silence” is his third album originally released in 1984, and is his first purely textural album, with a smooth, dark, gentle atmospheres unlike any of his other albums.

“Full of purring drones and high notes that shimmer and fade. Like a desert mirage, these structures hover forever at the horizon, an oasis from the din surrounding it - Pitchfork’s “Best Ambient Albums Of All time”.

“Steve Roach’s Structures From Silence remains one of the most important ambient albums ever crafted. It isn’t as high profile as similarly poised records from Brian Eno, but its enduring influence has been unmistakably visible in the three decades since its release.” FACT Magazine

Remastered from the original tapes, this is the first vinyl reissue of the album since it’s initial release in 1984.

Croak In The Weeds
LP | 2019 | CAN | Original (Telephone Explosion)
27,99 €*
Release:2019 / CAN – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Preorder 08.11.2019
Croak In The Weeds, the second instalment in a planned trilogy from ex-Deadly Snakes frontman André Ethier, will be released in fall 2019 on Telephone Explosion Records. The nine-song album was created in collaboration with Sandro Perri (producer) at his Toronto studio in late 2018 / early 2019.Croak In The Weeds continues Ethier and Perri’s musical relationship which was originally established on 2017’s Under Grape Leaves. Croak expands upon that album, deconstructing synthetic elements to a point of raw organic beauty. Lyrically, André’s approach has shifted to the natural world, focusing heavily on flora and fauna. Almost every track on the 34-minute album references animals, with central characters ranging from pigs to dragons. This is André’s third attempt at a trilogy of records. Previous attempts have stalled for various reasons; disillusionment with genre, unrealistic sense of self, arachnophobia... Though it would not be inaccurate to suggest that he now has completed a trilogy of unfinished trilogies (he would thank you for your optimistic reasoning,) and is still planning to finish this one. Regarding trilogies, André opines: “In the first you establish the tools and build yourself a room, in the sequel you live in the room and imagine what’s outside, finally in the third.... you escape?”He doesn’t know, he has never gone all the way...
Bob Bell - Necropolis
Bob Bell
Necropolis
LP | 2019 | US | Original (Telephone Explosion)
26,99 €* 29,99 € -10%
Release:2019 / US – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Forthcoming on Telephone Explosion. Bob Bell _Necropolis_. Canadian private press mega-rarity/ obscurity from the artistically schizophrenic Bob Bell. Recorded in 1978, Bell splits the difference between his love of basement psych splatter/pummel and squalling free jazz ramble, the former occupying side A with a stunning four part suite of wasted guitar scuzz and churning Krautrock-like drama with an akin to German Oak, Roland Kirk, Albert Ayler, DNA, Melt Banana (minus the vocals) and Guru Guru. The latter represents Bell as a saxophonist on side B, and the music itself translates into a 15-minute free-jazz exploration.

Bruce Haack - Preservation Tapes
Bruce Haack
Preservation Tapes
LP | 2018 | EU | Original (Telephone Explosion)
22,99 €*
Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
In 2016, after reissuing two Bruce Haack albums, Haackula and Electric Lucifer Book II, Telephone Explosion began speaking with Ted Pandel (Bruce’s lifelong friend and business partner) about working on the 1970 masterpiece The Electric Lucifer. It turned out there was another matter that he wanted to discuss: finding a final resting place for the Bruce Haack archive.
We were shown test-pressings of The Electric Lucifer board mixes from his Columbia studio sessions, countless pieces of written music, a large number of personal photos, an invitation from Raymond Scott inviting Bruce to play his newly created Electronium
instrument (now owned by Devo’s Mark Mothersbaugh), poems, press clippings, and, most importantly, a heavyduty shelf containing 213 reel-to-reel tapes. All of the chosen material on The Preservation Tapes is unreleased, has only been heard by a handful of people and showcases a relatively unknown period in Bruce’s
musical career where Bruce was recording for Sparrow Records (who billed themselves as "America's best Christian music record label”). Bruce’s signature Farad vocoder continues to feature prominently, but the lyrical content is decidedly more religious.
The Bruce Haack archive is now resting in the Provincial Archives of Alberta, in Edmonton,
Alberta, Canada.

10" | 2016 | US | Original (Telephone Explosion)
17,99 €* 19,99 € -10%
Release:2016 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
New Fries work to blur the lines of what constitutes as ‘band’, ‘visual art’, and ‘ performance art . Their newest release, More, is the band’s most dynamic release to date. Working with engineer Graham Walsh (Holy Fuck, Preoccupations, Metz, Alvvays, Viet Cong), the album mixes the urgencies or ‘quickness’ of their early songwriting with a more intentional consideration of format and evolved instrumentation, widening the use of electronics. The result is an artifact that best contains the intensity of their live show.
