SANDROSE

Band:SANDROSE
Album:SANDROSE
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

One week in Studio Davout was all it took for Sandrose to record an album that has long been considered one of the most important to emerge from France. After a failed stint as Eden Rose, the various members of that ensemble, led by guitarist extraordinaire Jean-Pierre Alarcen, decided to try a new approach. Their first move was to add a singer. Alarcen had been struck by the vocal timbre of Rose Podwojny (later to become foxy pop sensation Rose Laurens) on a William Sheller demo, and roped her into the band, which was newly dubbed Sandrose. They started rehearsals, and rapidly built a repertoire, mainly Alarcen compositions. He was strongly influenced by both classical symphonic music and rock and roll; his goal was to combine both musical styles, which he finally achieved in several new compositions. The resulting album is something special. On their sole release (Polydor, 1972), Sandrose play a superb mellow proto-progressive rock based on the continuous floating sounds of the mellotron, incisive guitar interventions by Alarcen, and singer Rose Podwojny’s powerful, clear voice.

An elegant 16-page booklet reproduces all original LP art; liner-notes tell the band’s history, and include rare photos, discography, and translations of several contemporary articles.

 

 

THE SEA DERS ANTHOLOGY

Band:THE SEA-DERS
Album:THE SEA DERS ANTHOLOGY
Label:LION PRODUCTIONS
Format:CD
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

This disc contains all known recordings of infectious Middle Eastern inflected rock/beat from the Sea-Ders (or Cedars), Lebanon's top musical export to the world. Eight dynamic tracks, with driving rhythms, blazing electric bouzouki (or oud?), recorded between 1966-1968. Fantastic! Starting in 1965, many groups began to borrow elements of Eastern music to add a little mystery and exotica to their sound. Some prominent examples of this trend include the Kinks’ 'See My Friends,' the Beatles’ 'Norwegian Wood,' and the Byrds’ 'Eight Miles High'; less well-known than the aforementioned acts, but considered masters of the form by those in the know, were the Sea-Ders. For them it wasn’t a case of flirting with foreign culture—they tapped right into the source, there in their own backyard! Decca Records contacted the group and offered them a record deal in the UK. The Sea-ders relocated to London, and in 1967 Decca released ‘Thanks A Lot’ b/w ‘Undecidedly.' The record got some airplay on the pirate stations, but failed to break into the charts. Nevertheless, Decca went ahead with an EP release, featuring three tracks along with the fine ‘Cause I Do Care.’ Apparently the record had a very limited pressing, as it’s now very rare, despite being one of the most exciting releases of the era. Booklet contains liner notes by Mike Stax (Ugly Things Magazine),

BAROCK

Band:PARZIVAL
Album:BAROCK
Label:SIREENA
Format:LP
Genre:Kraut / Space Rock

After the debut album "Legend" (Sireena 4007) Sireena Records now releases the second and final album "BaRock" back again on heavy 180 gram vinyl, too. Unlike the original edition this album appears even in the gatefold cover. Another document from the probably most innovative years of rock musicnsistently the musicians followed their course to theIr 2nd and final album of 1973. "BaRock" was a perfect blend of progressive folk, art rock and classical elements. The musicians had also looked for reinforcements for the recordings. The Aachener Zeitung (German daily paper) wrote after the release: "This is not only worth listening to music of the 70s, that's almost a chore to listen to. Here different influences merge into a warm convincing sound. " Nevertheless, “BaRock became the final step of PARZIVAL. The band split! The musicians were spread in all directions. In 1977 Lothar Siems and Walter Quintus released the critically acclaimed rock opera "Der Führer" . Quintus is still successful working in the music business. The history of PARZIVAL however, was terminated.

 

 

HEROINA

Band:HEROINA
Album:HEROINA
Label:SIREENA
Format:CD
Genre:Kraut / Space Rock

The German trio HEROINA recorded early nineties of the last century one of the most exciting albums ever made in Germany. The musicians took popular titles from REM, Patti Smith, Prince, Sex Pistols, The Stranglers and Edith Piaf and interpreted them according to their own ideas. The result was one of the most danceable albums ever to come out of Germany – directly on the desk of the DJs. Indie rock goes dancefloor! The idea worked: Hardly a dance hall, which did not present HEROINA, incidentally, also abroad. HEROINA recorded only this album. The members of HEROINA came from respected indie projects like Die Erde, Donna Regina, Kastrierte Philosophen, The Perc Meets The Hidden Gentleman.

EXALT THE IMPERIAL BEAST

Band:EMBALMED
Album:EXALT THE IMPERIAL BEAST
Label:Hells Headbangers
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

After 17 years of strategically scattered EPs & demos, EMBALMED finally mark their triumphant return with their very first fulllength album. Hailing from the darkest abyss of Mexico, EMBALMED leave nothing to subtlety when it comes to their raison d'etre - "Exalt the Imperial Beast"! A ceaselessly violent, gnawing torrent of black/death barbarity and sulfurous ritualism that is equally atrocious and dark but still retains a certain Death Metal character in the songwriting. A cult name that lurked in the shadows for far too long, EMBALMED surpass 95% of what is being offered in the current "black/death" scene - worship or die!

RIYL - BESTIAL WARLUST, early MYSTIFIER, classic TEITANBLOOD, IMPURITY and NYOGTHAEBLISZ

Genre:Black Metal

Black Heavy Metal is the law, and MIDNIGHT subjugate all subjects with their highly anticipated debut album after nearly a decade of EPs and splits. "Satanic Royalty" is both a distillation of first-wave black metal magick and an extension into harderrocking territories rampant with lust, filth, and sleaze. The name MIDNIGHT has been a cult one for years now, but here they prove it beyond a shadow of a doubt - bow down before their "Satanic Royalty"!
