Jooklo Duo
Live In Itri

New Qbico timez! This time around our little shipment contained a hat-trick of vinyls from the Neokarma Jooklo camp in various configurations and I think this is my hat-trick of reviews for the collective? We've got Peaceful Messages by Neokarma Jooklo Experience, Memories From the Age of the Dragon by Neokarma Jooklo Trio and the super limite...view item »

Churinga Canaries
Churinga Canaries

There's a big ole bunch on releases on the Qbico label this week which is always an exciting prospect (depending on your point of opinion I guess). This new stack of releases (5 in total) centres around the UK music scene and predominantly the Leeds music scene. Which is nice for me cos I'm from Leeds and we're based in Leeds. I almost feel like th...view item »

Odd Clouds
Odd Clouds

Oh good, I got summat on the esteemed Qbico records of Italy. That's really funny cos I was afraid I was gonna land myself some more dog faced indie cretins. I've got a picture disc of (initially) nightmarish minimal free jazz stumbling & spazzed out voodoo drone made by people with a healthy disregard for any semblance of a tune. Instead Odd C...view item »

Acid Birds
Acid Birds

More Qbico in't it. This self-titled Acid Birds LP comes on odd (but nice) streaky yellow vinyl with some sort of cute birdie in the middle, I think it's a parakeet or a conure or something. Birds are well amazing and god will send those tools I always see in town trying to kick pigeons to hell and they'll burn like the subhuman scum they are. An...view item »

Muruga / Robinson Dyad
Bubble Waves

Brett has just walked through the door and reported that The Jesus Lizard are reforming to play some live shows... Bloody exciting that like.. The latest batch of Qbico vinyl has arrived and I've landed the 'Bubble Waves' long player from Muruga/ Perry Robinson Dyad. Avant/ free jazz/ impov is the deal here. Muruga beats and tinkle with a whole bar...view item »

Mike Cooper
Live @ The Hint House NY City

The ever popular Qbico label has a brace of new wacked-out, head-splintering shit (meaning "good shit") out on limited wax. This Italian imprint has been unleashing sonic curiosities and bizarre chunks of garish vinyl for quite some time now. There's an album of fascinating field recording/live improv by a certain Mike Cooper in my pile. ...view item »

Eruption
Live action 1972, Wuppertal

Got some cool stuff on Qbico here all lovingly pressed on 180g vinyl. I head straight for the Eruption 2LP first as Conrad Schnitzler is involved and I've been listening to him a bit lately. 'Live Action, 1972 Wuppertal' This really sounds fantastic and light years ahead of it's time. This reminds me of the futuristic space age sounds of the B...view item »

The Orkustra/ Arthur Doyle Trio
Split

You might know Arthur Doyle from his CLASSIC 1978 joint Alabama Feeling but if not, prepare for some of the wildest blowin' of any sax abuser this side of Peter Brotzmann as once he starts squealing only God himself has the power to stop him. So he's turned up with his Trio on this split LP and they're firing out a seriously unhinged barrage of bra...view item »

Makoto Kawabata
Under your Moonshine

Makoto Kawabata/Kawabata Makoto??? Why do some releases by Japanese artists have the first and second names the opposite way around? It confuses me/me confuses. Anyway the talented man has an LP out on Qibico and here he's in his finest, ultra subtle medatitive mode. Apparently the recording was done way back in 2003/2004 and it's a superbly crafte...view item »

Sabu Toyozumi/Mototeru Takagi
If Ocean is Broken

Sabu Toyozumi and Mototeru Takagi are new names to me but they've got a new double LP out on the ever-lovely Qbico. It's very free stuff indeed, with Takagi's sax either honking manically like the most sonically aggressive work of Arthur Doyle, John Zorn or Evan Parker or displaying a surprisingly subdued clarity of tone when he feels the need, whi...view item »

Ashtray Navigations
Running On Autokinetic

Qbico time and we've got two whole Ashray Navigations LPs in the bag. Actually they're in a battered cardboard box but when someone buys them they'll go into plastic boxes for a little bit then when they're packed they'll go in crispy fresh cardboard boxes ready for post time. Then, and only then will they be bagged. Someone should probably make a ...view item »

Astral Social Club
Psychic Smog 1-7

More experimental treats on Qbico this week and amongst the latest batch of vinyl is Astral Social Club's 'Psychic Smog 1-7'. Recorded in winter 08/09 the tracks here are oven fresh. For this record the club are duo Campbell and Delaney. They sound like their pushing the gear to it's absolute limits here with some seriously strange cosmic sounds bl...view item »

Conrad Schnitzler
Silver.

Always a rare treat to get some Conrad Schnitzler audio, even more of a treat to get some vinyl. A box of wax has just landed from Qbico and out pop the 'Silver 1974/ 75' shows just how advanced this Tangerine Dream/ Cluster founder member's vision was. Even listening 35 years later the music sounds futuristic. Analogue synthesizers build up a simu...view item »

Hartmut Geerken/ John Tchicai

Maurizio Abate
Armonicum

We've just got some cool stuff from Qbico and it's been decided that I'm going to do the expensive one again. These are now going to be my trademark reviews, the ones I show to the grandkids. The little fuckers are going to be really impressed with this one because I don't know anything about it whatsoever and their website's gone demented ...view item »

Northwood Improvisers
Constellations

My Qbico fun starts with Constellations by Northwood Improvisers, who improvise all over one side of an LP while leaving the other side all nice and shiny for sherbert snorting or trying to look at the reflection of your own arsehole. It's super limited so only 100 people in the world may do this! It's a bit ethnic this job, utilising instruments f...view item »

Loosers
Natives Are Restless

I know I've heard records in the past by Loosers on Not Not Fun and Release The Bats but can't for the life of me remember what they sound like... So this reassuringly expensive 'Natives Are Restless' double LP on Qbico is a welcome refresher. The album consists of four live recordings from their home of Portugal. Exotic percussion rituals are the ...view item »

Tropa Macaca
Fiteiras Suadas

Bet it's not breezy in Portugal. That's where Tropa Macaca hail from. On Qbico, master label of impeccably packaged avant wax, 'Fiterias Suadas' is a fascinating listen. Rhoobarb & Custard techno minimalism meets gnarly shards of fuzz & juddering schizo bass frequencies that just wander all over the shop, lunging & looming like an ol...view item »

Golden Jooklo Age
Tropical Trip

An interesting start to the week with Golden Jooklo Age and their Tropical Trip LP, the presentation on this one is some of the best I've seen for ages with a mental totemic cyclops owl that's probably just beamed down from the heavens to take over our world via the power of the pentagram emblazoned on it's stomach. Then the vinyl is a complete spl...view item »

Slither
Invertebrate

Slither: Invertebrate (Qbico) one sided slab n black wax containing horn squeals, dense textures, dark drones and skeletal frequencies. The cover artwork features a hairy otherworldy insect creature and a bird emerging from an egg. Sounds are conjured from electronics and various blown through instruments. Moving from the high end to low end skr...view item »

Mats Gustafsson
Mats G plays Duke E

Also on Qbico is one of their dangerously limited (that's my theme this week) editions of 125 copies. This one is by Mats Gustafsson and it's a 1 sided ltd affair of Jazz. Now, regular readers will know I'm absolutely terrified of jazz (and spiders) so I thought I'd confront at least one my demons this week. On my gravestone it will say at the bot...view item »

Cotton Museum
No Face in the Bog

This week we have not 1, not 2, not 3, but 4 new releases on Qbico. Like buses they travel in packs. Not sure if I'm gonna review all of them but here's the 1st one by Cotton Museum called 'No Face In The Bog'. This reminds me of the time when my wife flushed young Ant...view item »

Hartmut Geerken
Amanita

Oh this Hartmut Geerken 2LP also sounds fantastic. The picture of him inside is incredible. I get the idea of some outsider genius at work. I think he's completely off his face on mushrooms and playing Sun Ra's s sun harp and banging and clattering on weird metallic percussion and making mad shamanic vocal ritual sounds. Brilliant stuff. Gold and b...view item »

Datashock: S/T (Qbico) More from the latest handful of free-music releases from the outlandishly challenging but worthy label that knows no bounds. On coloured vinyl of the sludge variety, this is i'm told what our Ant tunes out to after a few too many Guinness's at about 3am most saturday mornings, only to wake up with is lad crawling all ove...view item »

Boris Morgana
Liquid Child

Boris Morgana: 'Liquid Child' (Qbico) Second in our round up from Qbico records of Italy. This is a limited edition, maroon coloured vinyl release that explores the free form rock approach of Sunburned Hand Of The Man, No Neck Blues Band and the out there experiments of labels like Thurston Moore's Ecstatic Peace!.

Black Motor

Black Motor: 'S/T' (Qbico) A cursory glance at the players listed suggests the players are of Finnish origin. This trio comprises Tenor & Alto saxaphones, Double Bass and drums. The opening side's 'Love Life' starts out quite 'straight up' as in almost traditional, but soon gets into a 'bop mode' that suggests that by the end of the set it's go...view item »

Vibracathedral Orchestra
The Sun Balance/ The Open Knot

Brand new Vibracathedral Orchestra LP called The Sun Balance on kiwi coloured (the fruit rather than the bird) vinyl. Textured harmonics and droney mantra ish racket to get utterly monged out to at your earliest convenience. At times it sounds like a psychedelic rusty bike covered in rainbow dust from sun pixies.

Also in Qbico is an LP by Michael Flower from Vibracathedral Orchestra which is more psych ramblings reminding me of the more mangled output of the Velvet Underground. very druggy sounding and very very good indeed..... Returning to Knowing Nothing is LP only.... ...view item »
