17-April (RECORD STORE DAY)


ELECTRIC EELS - I’m So Agitated  / Cyclotron  (Agitated 7")                                 

The label will  launch with a special repressing of the aforementioned classic debut single, ‘(I’m So) Agitated’ b/w ‘Cyclotron’ (IMSO000) from the Electric Eels. Available on 7” in a facsimile of the original sleeve with a limited run of  300 on  red vinyl (for Record Store Day 2010), the single will be released on April 17th.

At  35 years old (this year), the single still blows away most of anything released since: the sound of amps crackling, the feral vocals, and just an attitude that few have come close to matching. Raw, visceral and put simply, one of the greatest singles of all time,

 MOON DUO - Catch As Catch Can / Set it On Fire (Agitated 7")

San Francisco’s Moon Duo feature the combined forces of Sanae Yamada and Wooden Shjips’ Erik Johnson .  Led by, ‘Catch As Catch Can’, a blistering sonic stew and b/w the a cover of the Scientists' classic speaker burner "Set It On Fire".  Taking threads from the fabric of Loop, Neu, Silver Apples, the PSF canon and the Red Eye /Black Eye label oeuvre the band weave a tapestry of droning motorik rock noise.

Both tracks are exclusive to this release.

24-May


FRANCIS HAROLD & THE HOLOGRAMS - Who Said These Were Happy Times (Agitated CD/LP)                         

Like the first time TAD’s- Gods Balls twatted our tweeters, the first time Pissed Jeans webbed out our woofers, and when we first discovered the skronk-spazz of Wanghead, Scratch Acid, Samhain and Blood Circus all boiled into one exploding pussball. Nasty, horrible, dirgy and brilliant. From Bisbee, Arizona, this is real grime under the fingernails of the US underground.

WARNING! If you’re susceptible to neurological damage don’t go here; this is brutal, the agonised screams contained herein will climb into your head and rip your brain in two.

Another slice of supreme San Franciscan psych- to be filed alongside Wooden Shjips  and the Heads et al. Recorded in a geodesic dome and taking the cues from Hawkwind and Pink Floyd, Featuring ex-members of  (the mighty) Zen Guerilla, Carlton Melton  explore elements of space and sound to create something which is is part  cosmic, part  space, and part kraut.
