Magnetic Seasons

Since 2003 Mugstar have been making their distinctive krautrock influenced psychedelic music. They impressed John Peel and collaborated with Can’s Damo Suzuki. On Magnetic Seasons, on double vinyl LP and CD from Rock Action, they capture the heavy instrumental post-rock so...view item »

Ad Marginem

It’s finally here! Mugstar’s ‘Ad Marginem’ seems to have been plagued with pressing problems but the finished product is now on our turntable for the very first time. It comes with a DVD of a film which was apparently m...view item »

Mugstar / The Cosmic Dead

A heavy astral fuzz leeks out of this split from Mugstar & The Cosmic Dead. Split features both bands tramitting there spacious vibes. Liverpool's Mugstar kick the record off with an 18 minute dive into the outer reaches of the cosmos, driving loops spuring this dark stoner-rock jam. Glaswegians ...view item »

Damo Suzuki & Mugstar
Start From Zero

From Mugstar and Damo Suzuki comes an improvised piece recorded on a hot summer night in Liverpool in 2012. An exploration of kraut/psyche from one of the leading voices on the scene along with one of the more compelling bands still finding new spaces and sounds in the genre. Limited edition gatefold v...view item »

Carlton Melton / Mugstar
Company / Black Fountain

Bit of an exciting one, this. Both of these bands are consistently strong performers on the modern psych landscape, as you're probably already aware if you're reading this, and on this split they both deliver quiet similarly paced repeato jams with tribal rhythms and not many notes, pick...view item »

Sun, Broken...

Hypno-rock stalwarts Mugstar are back again this week with yet another album, beautifully presented with a foil-stamped sleeve, swirly black and white vinyl and a hand-numbered insert, and they’re quick off the blocks in opener ‘Technical Knowledge As A Weapon’, settling into a clanking, head-batte...view item »


Mike was shocked the other day when I told him I had never seen Mugstar live. That is if you can imagine Mike actually registering anything as horrifying as shock. I think all of us here'd be quite disturbed to see his sleepy smiley face transmit such a con...view item »

Serra (Distant Sun Remix)

Mugstar are a great band! Along side Bristol's The Heads and Manchester's Gnod they are the  finest examples of Kraut-infused cosmic rock currently doing the rounds in the UK. When Agitated records pushed for a repress of the groups 'Lime' LP they also suggested the possibility of...view item »

Oneida / Mugstar
Collisions 02

Here's a thing for you. It's a split LP by noisy prawns Oneida and Mugstar. Each band gets a side each and both artists choose to fill each side with one long track. Oneida's contribution  'Shahin's Song' is a 15 minute improv rock beast with sludgey guitars and it's possibly the grimiest ...view item »

Mudhoney / Mugstar
Sonic Attack (Motorheads)

I get the Mudhoney/ Mugstar split 7" on Trensmat from their Sonic Attack Series. The Mudhoney tune 'Urban Guerilla' was recorded for a Peel session and first broadcast back in 2002. It's a no nonsense balls out rocker dripping with testosterone and reminding me of MC5. It's a gargantuan monster that's literally tearing up the office. They soun...view item »

Various (Mudhoney, Acid Mothers Temple, Moon Duo, White Hills, Mugstar)
In Search Of Hawkwind

Today is The Wrong Shape

Blooming heck, i'm liking this Mugstar thang. It's a 2 trk lathe cut on Trensmat with a bonus CD featuring 2 extra tracks as well as the lathe tracks meaning you'll never have to play it & can keep the polycarbonate disc in an hermetically sealed box to prevent it degrading too much or on the other hand you can just smash the CD up and play the...view item »

Bethany Heart Star

Straight in at number one we have the kicking 7" fresh from Trensmat records from dirt rockers MUGSTAR. Ant's immediately pushing his finger in the air for single o' the week so don't be surprised to see it rise to the top. Its a chuggin' distorted high gasoline rocker with sythns and crazy horns leading the atonal melody...view item »
