DRONES

Band:JEAN PHILLIPPE GOUDE
Album:DRONES
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:CD
Genre:Instrumental

Goude released his first album (with Olivier Cole) in 1975, "Jeunes Annees" (Saravah). A few months later, with Bernard Paganotti's band Weidorje, Goude initiated a rock adventure which ultimately resulted in a second album, "Drônes" (Polydor, 1979)—an album which features an impressive gathering of some of the biggest names in late 70's underground French rock, including: Richard Pinhas (rhythmic synthesizer), François Auger (drums); Michel Ettori: (guitar), Patrick Gauthier (flute, synthesizer, piano, mini-moog), Manu Katché (drums), and Jean-Louis Rizet (mixing & special effects). Goude’s proto-electronica cosmic loops and moog melodies now find themselves coupled with tough prog drum beats and other elements of rock music; "Drônes" mixes solo keyboard pieces like ‘Coma’ and ‘Duo’ with group oriented pieces: ‘Dies Irae’ is a Zeuhl rock scorcher; ‘Machine’ uses a string quartet as the foundation for synthesizer musings by Goude and Richard Pinhas. Although the Weidorje influence is evident on some numbers, Jean-Philippe Goude takes his music well beyond the Zeuhl trend.

DUG DUG`S

Band:DUG DUG`S
Album:DUG DUG`S
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

"Lost In My World" (sometimes referred to as Self Titled) is the "must have" 1971 debut album from psychedelic guru Armando Nava and his band DUG DUG's recorded after their US trip did not produce the stardom they had been Promised, the pain and disappointment sparking great song-writing on this, the first Mexican psych album in English. This is the first time for this trippy classic on CD courtesy of new Code 7 label Lion Productions.

4K Review's in Mojo & Record Collector - Good reviews in Uncut & Shindig.

 

 

SMOG

Band:DUG DUG`S
Album:SMOG
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

"Smog" is the DUG DUG's classic second album (1972) Nava's band is in Spanish this time, as all other Mexican bands were by now singing in English. There’s no doubt that the Dug Dug’s also toughened up their sound on "Smog": to some people they sound like a crazy Mexican version of Jethro Tull, and to others like a Spanish speaking incarnation of the MC5.

4 Star Reviews in Record Collector & Uncut - Glowing Reviews in Shindig & Mojo too! 

 

 

GROOVE CLUB VOLUME 2

Band:VARIOUS ARTISTS
Album:GROOVE CLUB VOLUME 2
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

Volume two of the "GROOVE CLUB" collections of Cambodian music - People in Cambodia kept hold of this music on pain of death, their small hoards of forbidden vinyl putting them constantly in danger of the "killing fields". There were no deluxe studios for the musicians who recorded the devastating tracks contained on this CD version of our acclaimed double-LP collection. Nothing so grand; Most of these tracks were recorded live, with traditional instruments finding a place alongside any keyboards or guitars that could be found. And yet, it was these experiments of Khmer rock musicians which transformed the nightlife of the Cambodian capital, Phnom Penh—and which many years later have seduced countless listeners around the world with their groovy sound. Alas, in 1975 came the rise to power in Cambodia of the fanatical, anti-Western Khmer Rouge, led by Pol Pot and the scene was over. A fascinating unrepeatable time capsule.

PARA CASTUKIS

Band:SANDHY AND MANDHY
Album:PARA CASTUKIS
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

Sandhy & Mandhy were among the first in South America to bring a rebellious attitude to their music—all this in a period of military repression, when forced haircuts (and brutality) in the streets were a common occurrence. Now years later you can check out their groovy, organ-driven melancholy psych, with Zombies-ish harmony vocals, a little touch of bossa, and other treats (some lovely fuzz guitar!) - At times introspective and acoustic, at others manic and ramshackle in the best way, it's quite a discovery. The 28-page booklet has the full Sandhy & Mandhy story, plenty of photos, and lyrics in Spanish and English along with five bonus tracks.

WE RECRUIT / LP

Band:VENTURA
Album:WE RECRUIT / LP
Label:African Tape
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Postrock / Post Hardcore / Noise

VENTURA is a Swiss indie-rock trio. Since 2002, those ex ILLFORD, ISCARIOTE and SHOVEL spread their own blend of noisy tension and melodic sweetness. Their passion for 90’s independant rock music leave them close to bands like HELMET, HUM, SONIC YOUTH or UNWOUND. 2005, Ventura is part of the soundtrack for ROLLOW, a Swiss independant movie by Emanuelle Antille. On the same year, they released two split 10” with DISCO DOOM (Zurich) and CORTEZ (Fribourg). The next year, “Pa Capona”, VENTURA’s first album, is released on Get A Life! records and collects good press reactions. The band plays Swiss and French clubs opening for such fine acts like THE PAPER CHASE, MEDICATIONS, THEE MORE SHALLOWS, ENABLERS, QUI, DIANOGAH or FUTURE OF THE LEFT. With help from Le Romandie, a club from Lausanne, VENTURA have the chance to invite DAVID YOW, singer from THE JESUS LIZARD, SCRATCH ACID and QUI, for a collaboration: The recordings were released in June 2010 as a 7”. VENTURA’s second full length, called “We Recruit”, was recorded with Serge Morattel at REC Studio in Geneva during autumn 2009.

Here is the LTD Vinyl 12" version, remastered by John Golden.
