COLD WAVES OF COLOUR

Band:VARIOUS ARTISTS
Album:COLD WAVES OF COLOUR
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:CD
Genre:Drone/Ambient

Cold wave, electronic synth pop, and minimal tracks from the Color Tapes archive, recorded between 1981-1985

Features cold wave pioneers Lives of Angels, WeR7, and Modern Art - Tracks drawn from DIY cassette editions of 100 copies (or less) - Two bonus tracks not on import vinyl edition

Collection of rare UK cold wave tracks taken from Color Tapes label cassettes released in micro editions between 1981-1985. Color Tapes was the brainchild of future Sun Dial leader Gary Ramon: "Living in East London, it was a very grey and bleak time. Huge imposing tower blocks, gasworks and concrete just about everywhere. You couldn't walk through some areas without the risk of being shot at by an air rifle, or worse. Luckily, salvation was in the music. The musical landscape was changing. I saw a very early gig by an unknown all-synth band called Depeche Mode at a dingy pub under a flyover called The Bridge House in Canning Town, London. Following this I saw Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five and started buying records by the likes of Afrika Bambaataa. At the other end of the musical spectrum, we were picking up records by Stockhausen, John Cage, Pierre Henry and Moondog, and combing junk shops for anything else that looked interesting!" The UK cassette scene and DIY ethos were thriving. Color Tapes was born. Home multi-track recorders were luxury items. They had to make do with sound on sound recorders, bouncing between reel-to-reel and cassette machines if they wanted stereo. What you're about to hear for the first time since those days is a snapshot of Color Tapes: released material and other unissued tracks too. This compilation is the first of a series of Color Tapes/Lion Productions releases of material from the Color Tapes archives

 

 

MATEO Y TRASANTE

Band:EDUARDO MATEO and JORGE TRANSATE
Album:MATEO Y TRASANTE
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:PSYCH/INSTRUMENTAL

First time vinyl reissue of this tremendous 1976 guitar/percussion album.

From the original multi-track master tapes

Four panel insert has info on the making of the album as told by Jorge Trasante, lyrics in English and Spanish + amazing session photos by Enrique Abal Oliú.

"Under the dark cloud of an early 1970's dictatorship, most musicians fled Uruguay. Not the nation's best, iconoclast Eduardo Mateo. It was during this dark period that Mateo reached his zenith as a composer and arranger, with a help from famous Afro-folk percussionist Jorge Trasante. On this album, Mateo goes deep into sonic explorations of percussion variations and guitar techniques. Mateo’s voice also underwent a mutation for the album, which many people thought the result of a deep mental illness; Trasante explains that Mateo used modulations drawn from Arabic music to “get into different characters with his voice.” This record is now considered indisputable evidence of Mateo’s genius. “If Eduardo Mateo was a genius, and that fact no one who has heard his music doubts, then ‘Mateo y Trasante’ is his masterpiece. There were some who said that Mateo and Trasante were both crazy, that Mateo could not sing. Mateo and Trasante resisted the vile and ruthless criticism of those skeptics: those who resisted the quality and depth of this record. Mateo and Trasante resisted, immovable, as are those who know that history will have its day of judgment. To paraphrase someone who knew music and much more, for the truth and Mateo, I sign my name here.” —Daniel Figares.

ONE LIE AT A TIME

Band:GALILEO 7
Album:ONE LIE AT A TIME
Label:STATE RECORDS
Format:7" VINYL
Genre:Psych/Garage

There may be a time when the words ‘ex-member of the legendary Medway garage-mod-rockers The Prisoners, and currently playing bass in Graham Day & the Forefathers’ don’t need to be appended to anything that Allan Crockford does with his own band – or any of the multitude of bands he’s played in since the Prisoners split in 1986 – but he’s not holding his breath. He’s just getting on with making great records with The Galileo 7. Their 3rd album, ‘False Memory Lane’, was critically well received and showed the band capable of confounding and improving on the Medway DIY garage rock stereotype:

Now The Galileo 7 roar back with a new line-up making its recording debut on this double A-side 7” single. And the sound has evolved... or regressed... or just exploded. Pocket dynamo (and State Records head honcho) Mole moves from bashing the bass to fulfilling his true calling – smashing seven shades out of his vintage Premier drumkit. Original bouncing bassist Paul Moss returns to fill the gap, creating a new rocket-fuelled, over-revving rhythm engine that nearly tears itself of its mountings. Couple that engine with four-part harmonies, baroque flavoured organ and Mellotron noodlings from Viv Bonsels, fuzz-laden crunchy guitar and two typically twisty, turny psych-power-pop tuneramas from Crockford, all lovingly captured in futuristic mono at Jim Riley’s Ranscombe Studios, and you have one of those rare beasts—a single that demands to be flipped ad infinitum. There is no B-side. This double A sided, AAA rated slab of finely judged melodic noise could be from 1968 or 1978... or even 2015. Grab yourselves one of these limited edition, purple picture-sleeved objects of primitive beauty now...
