Ace Farren Ford (Child Molesters) - Diary of Madness/Espionage 7"

Artist: 
Ace Farren Ford (Child Molesters)

Label: 
Ace & Duce
Format: 
7"

Last copies from Ace’s personal archives, from an edition of 500.

"Recorded in 1982 at the band's final sessions, this two-song single finds the singer sounding less like The Fugs and more like The Mentors' El Duce, and the band in a less offensive and more serious mood.... Still, the title track is exquisite, with a bass line stolen from Vince Guaraldi's 'Linus & Lucy,' some of the queasiest tremelo-bar-damaged guitarwork on record, and a scraggly sick sound that may not be pretty but sure is interesting! High-speed high-end guitar diddling is also featured in perhaps the artiest (and most Captain Beefheart-esque) track the band ever recorded."--Mark Prindle

These copies are not in Mint condition, but they are all in excellent condition, never been played, and include an insert with photo and lyrics.

Artist: 
The Mystery Band

Label: 
Birdcage
Format: 
CD

"Overall, the (CD’s) effect is a west desert circus of off-the-wall, sublime humor and a grab bag of instrumentation. A sticker sheet allows you to title the CD The Mystery Band's self-titled debut Swansong, Perfect Flaw, or one of many other possibilities. I am sure you could make your own, but just listen often. The unusual rhythms and vivid lyrics yield more secrets as you try them on."—Tom Schulte (CD Universe)

Personnel: Pierre Dupuy (vocals, whistling, acoustic guitar, drums, percussion); Gary Riley (vocals, guitar, mandolin, harmonica, percussion); Maurice Jones (vocals, guitar, saxophone, piano, sampler); Ace Farren Ford (vocals, banjo, musette, soprano saxophone, tenor saxophone, horns, washboard); Richard Snyder (vocals, marimba, percussion); Louis Durra (keyboards).

Ace Farren Ford (The Mystery Band) - Wood CD

Artist: 
The Mystery Band

mysteryband.jpg

Label: 
Poo-Bah
Format: 
CD

The Mystery Band was started as a conspiracy between Ace Farren Ford, Richard Snyder, Gary Riley & Pierre Dupuy in 1987. Originally a quintet including Maurice Jones (who left in 1996 for an illustrious solo career) the group debuted at the legendary and now defunct Palomino Club in North Hollywood in March of 1988.

Their first release was a 7 inch single entitled "Tasting The Smell Of Light" on SFTRI in 1989, followed several years later by their first CD, the now out-of-print "Insert Title Here" on Birdcage in 1996 (during the interim they managed to back the notorious British artist Savage Pencil on an abstract CD called "Ether Hogg", also on SFTRI, 1994).

In 1996 they contributed a track on the unlikely compilation "Merry Maladies" on Cleopatra (backing founder Ace Farren Ford on a "solo" track called "Scurvy") and closed the millennium by signing with the AIM Recording Company, who have released the LP "Leo, Gemini, Capricorns and Jones, Ltd." and the 7” EP "Rebels Without Applause" from the original first album sessions, and will shortly be reissuing the out-of-print debut CD as "Resume (Reinsert Title Here)." Naturally all releases contain previously un-issued tracks so that die-hard Mystery Band fans will have to have them all.

The band was joined by the legendary Larry Mister E. Easter, (veteran of such history making outings as Harvey Mandel's Cristo Redentor and 3 Linn County LPs) on horns and woodwinds in 2001.

The Mystery Band are:
Ace Farren Ford - vocals, washboard, tenor & soprano saxophone, trumpet, chinese musette (suona), one-string 3/4 banjo & occasional bass guitar.
Lance Growler Richard Snyder - vocals, bass & bass guitar, guitar, marimba, mellotron, harmonium.
Gary Mercury Leatherwing Riley - vocals, guitars, national steel & lap steel guitar, hurdy gurdy, accordian, keyboards, mandolin, banjo & harmonica.
Pierre Bamboo Dupuy - vocals, drums & percussion, washtub bass, guitar, banjo & mandolin.
Larry Mister E. Easter - baritone & soprano saxophones, shaums, clarinet, digeridoo, flutes, neys and what have you.

AIRWAY - Beyond The Pink Live CD+7"

Artist: 
AIRWAY

Airway-BTP.jpg

Label: 
Cortical
Format: 
7"/CD

One of three in a series of deluxe packaged reissues of extremely rare and unreleased material from LAFMS. Each comes in a heavy duty full color gatefold 7” jacket, with inserts, etc., numbered and limited to 700 copies each: “state of the art packaging quality and attention to detail.” “Airway started in 1977 as a plot by Joe Potts to subliminally program audiences behind the cover of a chaotic wall of sound. To create the wash of ear-splitting noise, all of the instruments, Vetza’s vocals, and the subliminal implants are mixed together and processed through a daisy-chain of flangers, phase-shifters, delays and distortions. Then the super-charged signal is blasted through guitar amps carefully placed to maximize the ricochet of sound from wall to wall. Airway kicks the notion of ‘loud’ up to a whole new level.”

Includes a CD recording of Airway live at Beyond The Pink festival from 1998 with the LAFMS alumni, including Jerry Bishop, Don Bolles, Dennis Duck, John Duncan, Pierre Bamboo Dupuy, Ace Farren Ford, Kevin Laffey, Mike Kelley, Don Lewis, Fredrik Nilsen, Rick Potts, Joe Potts, Tom Recchion, Melinda Ring, Captain Alan Schuck, Richard Snyder, Vetza, Liz Young. Also includes a reproduction Airway 7” from 1977 (with separate sleeve) and a CD-ROM movie of “Airway at Beyond The Pink” and “Mother/Daughter”, plus Airway documentation (flyers, ephemera, etc.) in PDF format.

Bpeople - Petrified Conditions 1979-1981 LP

Artist: 
Bpeople

Label: 
Restless
Format: 
LP

Sealed archival copies of this out of print LP by the art-rock-punk ensemble Bpeople from Los Angeles. Bpeople, who existed between 1978 and 1982, featured LAFMSers Tom Recchion and Fredrik Nilsen, and also featured Alex Gibson and Pat Delaney (formerly of the Deadbeats). Originally formed in 1978 as Curtain with future Swans leader Mike Gira, the band quickly changed their name to Little Cripples, then to Strict IDs, and finally settled on Bpeople in 1979.  They played tons of shows and had the privilege of playing with many of the leading art-rock, punk rock, and post-rock musicians and groups of the day: Captain Beefheart, B-52’s, Gang of Four, Suicide, New Order, DNA, Cabaret Voltaire, Dead Kennedys, DOA, Sleepers, Middle Class, and the Germs among others and formed the core of the legendary ASB, a loose affiliation of like-minded Los Angeles bands that included Human Hands, Monitor, and NON. Little know factoid: They were tapped to open for Joy Division in 1980 before Ian Curtis committed suicide on the eve of that bands US tour.

“Petrified Conditions—a full album of original recordings (some, but not all, previously issued on Bpeople EP and other vinyl) remixed in 1984-'85 by Alex Gibson and Paul B. Cutler—is a…convincing introduction to Bpeople's artsy sophistication. The sonic and stylistic variety is impressive, and Gibson's songwriting displays structural abilities far beyond the punk club milieu in which the band existed. A worthwhile archaeological find.”—Trouser Press

Bpeople - S/T LP

Artist: 
Bpeople

Label:

Format: 
LP

“Alex Gibson (vocals, guitar, main songwriter) led LA's Bpeople for several years around the turn of the decade. Beginning as the Little Cripples, the quartet (with the ubiquitous Paul Cutler on bass) turned into Bpeople after singer Michael Gira left for New York (forming Circus Mort and then the Swans). The eponymous 1981 eight-song mini-album consists of dark, moody music somewhere between Joy Division and Soft Cell, neither as jarring or desperately distorted as the former, nor as pervasively pop as the latter.”—Trouser Press

Features LAFMS co-founders Fredrik Nilsen and Tom Recchion along with Paul Cutler, Pat Delaney, and Alex Gibson.

Debt of Nature - Order: Spoil The Entire State LP

Artist: 
Debt of Nature

Label: 
Harbinger Sound (UK)
Format: 
LP

An album of incredible archival recordings by Brad Laner and Jim Goodalls 1980s  noise orchestra. Featuring many other LAFMS members such as Rick Potts and Joseph Hammer , along with several unknown secret San Fernando Valley noise geniuses. An albums worth of epic spontaneous compositions created with tape recorders, short wave radios, cheap synths, random orchestral instruments and circuit bent gear and all unleashed in front of an unsuspecting audience.

"...we opened for WALL OF VOODOO and successfully pissed off 1000 screaming New Wave assholes"

Starting out back in August 1981 as Brad Laners solo project and self-confessed "pretentious art phase". It wasnt long before he started bringing friends , most notably Jim Goodall and Spencer Savage, and other players in and over the following years DEBT OF NATURE would expand into a much larger ensemble. Its those larger ensembles that are captured on this album with live recordings caught throughout the bands final two years. These tracks were originally programmed with a four 7" boxset in mind, but the flow of the pieces works just as well on the 12" format here.

Even though they only released a small number of cassettes throughout their lifespan, mostly on ARPH and Laners own Party Sound Tapes label. They appeared on numerous seminal Noise and Punk crossover compilations that emitted from Californias west coast on labels such as the Minutemen’s New Alliance imprint, New Underground, and Trance Port. Later other work appeared on Anomalous Records. Over the five to six years they existed the band played many shows throughout Los Angeles and up into the Bay Area.

DEBT OF NATURE is the starting block for both Laner and Goodalls musical trajectory that has now spanned three decades and taken in many points along the way. Both players recently resurfaced with a reformed MEDICINE , a band they formed who released material via Creation Records and Rick Rubins American Recordings. Prior to that they could be found alongside LAFMS mainstay Rick Potts and others in the STEAMING COILS. Laner was also a major player in FOURWAYCROSS and could be found at times in SAVAGE REPUBLIC, NERVOUS GENDER and many others. Jim Goodall would record for a number of years under the alias of D.D.DOBSON  and his violent electronic works can be found on numerous experimental noise labels. He also played as a member of WHITEHOUSE during their comeback tour of the USA during 1993.—from the press release

Dennis Duck - Dennis Duck Goes Disco CD or 2LP

Artist: 
Dennis Duck

ddgd.jpg

Label: 
Poo-Bah
Format: 
CD

Available on gatefold double LP or CD.

“Dennis Duck Goes Disco” was originally released in September 1977 as LAFMS 2425 in a limited edition of 20 cassettes, individually signed and numbered. This exacting CD reissue features a great booklet with new liner notes by Dennis, and design by longtime friend Tom Recchion. The album was made entirely with a phonograph and records, utilizing skipping and pitch changes for most of the effects.

Duck is perhaps best loved for his tenure with Smegma and The Doo-Dooettes but he is also known as a drummer for The Dream Syndicate and Human Hands as well as working with Stillife, Paul Is Dead, and The Square Haircuts among others. However, “Dennis Duck Goes Disco” may well prove to be his most historically potent release. Recorded using nothing but turntables and vinyl, Duck uses his skills as a free drummer to manipulate stuck grooves, needle blats, analogue static and scratched discs into melodic/percussive assemblages that cross that daffy early-LAFMS style with very psychedelic miniatures, Industrial tone-poems, computerised number stations threat and funny vocal skits. Aspects of both Christian Marclay and Emil Beaulieau are flashed on here and there but overall this feels very much like a record made by a drummer using records. Anyone intent on chasing down the various manifestations of the legendary LAFMS movement will want to spend extended time in here. Reissue artwork and packaging by Tom Recchion. “DDGD is probably the LAFMS release I listened to the most.”--Ace Farren Ford

Dimmer - The Shining Path CD

Artist: 
Dimmer (Joseph Hammer)

Label: 
Melon Expander/LAFMS
Format: 
CD

Dimmer is a duo comprising live sampling pioneer Thomas Dimuzio and tape-loop maestro Joseph Hammer. Swallowing audiences with their dark explorations of sound, Dimmer specializes in a symbiotic sound process as they continually loop, reloop, sample and resample within an interactive feedback circuit linking both artists. For their debut CD, Dimmer melds their recursive circuits into rich and seething sonic masses with subtle waves pulsing sound within sound. Ripe with theme and variation, The Shining Path suspends the listener over dim and dank planes on an aural trip spanning and scanning from a celestial vista. Nearly every aspect of Dimmer's live performances grace The Shining Path, yet this is not a live document, but rather a pastiche and reworking of everything Dimmer has accomplished in their years of performing as a duo.

This CD represents the first ever release of this single thirty-five minute piece (titled by Recchion as “Blueprint For The Shimmering Quivers Of The Deep Purple Ultraviolet Tuning Fork”), discovered in the cassette collection of Dennis Duck, unheard for 25+ years. Liner notes and cover artwork by Tom Recchion.

Extended Organ - XOXO CD

Artist: 
Extended Organ

XO-XO.jpg

Label: 
Birdman
Format: 
CD

Extended Organ is a “supergroup” of experimental sound artists whose members are culled from the ranks of the. The four members of Extended Organ have been improvising with sound for over three decades and although they have played together in various configurations in the past, this CD marks the first time the quartet ever played together as a total entity. The foursome all have active and well established careers on their own: Paul McCarthy is a world-renowned art superstar. His work in Extended Organ consists of free form vocal/lyrical improvisations that play off the instrumental improvisations of the other three members while at the simultaneously setting a mood, telling a story and responding to the general ambiance of the performance situation. Fredrik Nilsen is a founder of the LAFMS and a noted photographer. Nilsen conceptually founded Extended Organ in which he plays prepared acoustic guitar and both an antique analog organ and a modern digital keyboard, all in an especially unorthodox style. Fredrik’s approach spins equally from gothic horror movie soundtracks. Joe Potts is a founder of the LAFMS and mastermind of Airway, which has been called “the gnarliest noise band of all time”. Potts is omnipresent on his chopped optigans--instruments he crafts from dismantled 70s optical samplers. With up to 64 simultaneous samples per instrument, the chopped optigan is the ultimate drone machine. Tom Recchion is a founder of the LAFMS, a Grammy winner art director, and member of the Doo-Dooettes, The Rodney Forest, and Bpeople. Recchion uses Kurzweil, guitar, radio, CDs, etc. to accent the other instruments as well add the occasional lush crescendo. Tom also acted as producer on the record and mixed and processed the sound of the entire ensemble live during the recording. Three years in the making, XOXO is creepy and wonderful.

"Extended Organ, appropriately enough, have their roots in the LAFMS, the foursome having performed over many years in many different combinations, but never in this incarnation. Who are they all then? Well, there's artist Paul McCarthy, whose FXed vocals give Mike Patton (in Fantomas mode) a run for his money in the scary, splatter movie stakes; and Fredrik Nilsen, an LAFMS founder, specialist in prepared guitar and dildo, apparently. Then there's Joe Potts, inventor of the chopped optigan, instruments cannibalised from 70s optical samplers. And last but not least, another LAFMS founder, and Nilsen's compadre in the Doo-Dooettes, Tom Recchion. Recchion was most recently heard as one of the contributors to David Toop's spoken word collection Hot Pants Idol (his was the best piece on the album, imho), and previously on the extraordinary Chaotica (also on Birdman), an album of exotica cut-ups whose end results way outstrip its methodology. So there's about a century's worth of radical music history between these guys, and, boy, does it show. XOXO's press release describes it as three years in the making, and at once it sounds like that and an afternoon's work. For this is radically Free music, which has its roots in improv but eschews any music-making dogma. EO will grab a cornball pop riff as soon as they'll turn in a psych-organ solo. Or scream a lot. Or drone eerily for an hour or so (subjective time). Actually, this music genuinely comes closer than any I've heard to the sounds of my recurring infant nightmare (it involved swimming pools and hands, I seem to recall, but let's not go there... ), but don't let that put you off. This is masterful stuff, a sound world rendered as physical as any can be. Great start to the year, I reckon."--Simon Hopkins, sonomu.net

Joe & Joe - S/T LP

Artist: 
Joe & Joe

Label: 
LAFMS
Format: 
LP

Hard to find even when it was new, these are some of the last remaining copies of this amazing piece of music from the duo of Joe Potts and Joseph Hammer. Rubber stamped labels and clear plastic sleeves adorn the otherwise spartan packaging containing approximately 20 minutes of music per side.  The price reflects the very limited nature of these records; your purchase goes  directly to help fund future LAFMS projects—so buy a lot!  And we’re still cheaper than Discogs!

Please limit one per customer.
