Neil Ardley
A Symphony Of Amaranths

As a fan of AFC Wimbledon, just imagine how excited this young blurb writer is to see a record from The Dons’ manager Neil Ardley up on the Norman Records site! Granted, A Symphony Of Amaranths isn’t the sort of poetic turn of phrase one usually associates with former members of The Crazy Gang, but Ardley’s a man of principle and I’m sure he knows what he’s doing. I wonder if there’s anything as catchy as ‘We Are Wombles’ on here? Time to find out. Off we go … … Oh, looks like I’ve got the wrong Neil Ardley. This one is actually a late jazz pianist who was the director of the New Jazz Orchestra, and this pressing of A Symphony Of Amaranths is a reissue of a work that dates from 1972. Ardley conducts a chamber jazz ensemble here as well as banging keys on a prepared piano. There’s a track on it called ‘The Dong With A Luminous Nose’. If only it were ‘The Don With A Luminous Nose’. Take me back to Plough Lane ...

The Book Of AM
Part V: Night

The Book Of AM is a project begun in 1977 with esoteric philosophical intentions, and featuring words and sounds from around the world and across hundreds of years. Part V, representing Night, for some reason was not completed and never appeared with the rest of the collection, but this crack team, using overdubs and additional composition as well as mixing and mastering techniques, now present the completed final part! LP on Wah Wah.

Zweistein
Trip - Flip Οut - Meditation

Now here is a real epic of obscure trippy magic. From 1970, its Zweistein’s only album, reissued for the first time ever on the same format it was first presented in: a triple album vinyl box-set housed in an elaborate embossed and mirrored sleeve. Trip - Flip Out - Meditation’s music, split into three album-length parts, is super-weird, even for the krautrock / prog music of the time. What a rare gem! Now reissued in full style, and with a bonus 7” too.

Sexedelic
Sexedelic

Manfred Hübler and Siegfried Schwab were 2 German composers enlisted to provide soundtracks for 3 Spanish b-movies / sex films in the 1970’s. They took on the task with aplomb: this Sexedelic music is brassy, psychedelic, groovy, and fun: it really could get one in the mood. Original pressings are super rare, but Wah Wah Records Supersonic Sounds have pressed up a new vinyl edition of 1000.

Pythagoron™
Pythagoron™

Originally marketed by subversive Illumantus'esque print media adds in counter culture publications of the late seventies. The ambiguous Pythagoron™ was presented as a mind altering consciousness rehabilitating sonic narcotic. Believed to be the work of the equally ambiguous early media arts collective USCO (The Company Of Us) based in New York city. This minimalist experimentation can potentially be placed in a paradigm somewhere between prog, psych, sine and drone wave. This electronic oddity receives a reissue faithful to the original on vinyl with artwork printed on a silver cover and in a limited run of 500 copies.

107-34-8933
Numbers

“Eins, Zwei, Drei, Vier, Fünf…” - whoops, sorry, wrong pioneering electronic release named Numbers. In fact, this is 107-34-8933, perhaps better known as the late Nicolas Raicevik or Head, a musician and painter who had percussion credits on a Rolling Stones LP and also a slew of strange, trailblazing Moog experiments, such as this record here. Three tracks, respectively named after cannabis, mescaline and LSD, possibly created under their influence; one way or another these are magnificent, mashed and remarkably restrained soundscapes - and now half a century old.

Alain Meunier
Voyage aux fonds de la Mer

Alain Meunier’s 1979 album Voyage aux fonds de la Mer might be the only LP he released, but it still holds considerable sway in the pantheon of French experimental rock. Bringing together strains of space rock, King Crimson-style prog and kosmische, the record first appeared on legendary imprint Le Kiosque d’Orphee and now fetches considerable moolah on Discogs. Fortunately Wah Wah Records Supersonic Sounds have seen fit to give it its first-ever vinyl reissue. Alain Meunier is not to be confused with the French cellist of the same name.

Popol Vuh
Die Nacht Der Seele - Tantric Songs

Florian Fricke’s avant-garde electronic experimental group Popol Vuh joined moog synthesizers with percussion and instrumentation, as well as scoring many of Werner Herzog’s films. Originally released in 1979 and not seen on vinyl since 1984 Wah Wah have brought this percussive ambient beast back to life with a bonus track and liner notes from Dolf Mulder.

Popol Vuh
Sei Still, Wisse ICH BIN

Wah Wah Supersoni Sounds continue their revival of Florian Fricke and Popol Vuh material with their 13th full length LP Sei Still, Wisse ICH BIN. Produced by Karl Schulze (Ash Ra Tempel, Tangerine Dream and label head). A number of these tracks were used on Werner Herzog’s Fitzcarraldo. Repackaged with bonus tracks and liner notes by Dolf Mulder. FFO Dead Can Dance.

Florian Fricke
Die Erde Und Ich Sind Eins - I Am One With The Earth

Florian Fricke of Popol Vuh set out to record his first solo record, though the very nature of it required a huge number of performers. Massive layers of vocal chants wash into a spiritual chorus. Not repressed since 1983, Wah Wah have included a book written by Fricke to join the release that was never published.

The Vampires' Sound Incorporation
Psychedelic Dance Party

Between the title and the cover, I’m already signed up to whatever this has to offer me. The Vampires’ Sound Incorporation are two German (of course, the Germans) composers and Psychedelic Dance Party is a collection of tunes made for 1970s b-movie horror flicks. There’s so much going on here, with musical influences crossing over like no one’s business. Really great stuff, needs to be heard to be believed. First ever reissue. 1000 limited copies with original artwork and an 8-page, full colour booklet with liner notes and pictures - oooooh yeeeeesh!  

Musikautomatika
Musikautomatika

Sonic gold from Musikautomatika, treasures of the Latin American late 70's experimental sound scene. The free-form cosmic Venezuelan improv collective comprised of Luis Levin, Alvise Sacchi, Stefano Gramitto, Mirella López and Gabriela Gamboa and remain highly regarded. This hidden gem receives a suitably lavish limited edition vinyl reissue on Wah Wah Supersonic Sounds. Coming with an ample photo booklet, text written by Luis Levin and includes an interview with the band by Luis Alvarado (Cazar Truenos blogzine / BUH Records).

Didier Bocquet
Voyage Cerebral

French synthesist Didier Bocquet's sound draws inspiration from the works of German artists like Klaus Schulze. This, Voyage Cerebral, Bocquet's follow up to debut Eclipse, maintains that interplanetary trajectory of Berlins Kosmiche pioneers. Sometimes violent, always cosmic Boquet's sequenced electronic music retains still a uniquely French take on the do it yourself synth style. navigating as it does a course through Pink Floyd progness, Atari invaders and strains of Andromeda soundtrack. The reissue on Wah Wah Supersonic Sounds effectively illustrates the historic topographic transition of minimalist soundscapes from the late 70's into the early 80's.  

GAM
1976

Originally recorded in, you guessed it, but not released until 1986, on cassette, on then subsequently on CDrs a few times through Auricle. Wah Wah have snapped it up, remastered it and put Günter Schickert’s pure krautrock project GAM onto vinyl for the first time. This was a single session, single tack freakout straight to tape, choatic and atmospheric.

Jean-Jacques Perrey
Musique Electronic du Cosmos

The wonderful electronic world of the late Jean-Jacques Perrey gets the tribute it deserves here, shining a light on his old-school developments for synthesizers and pop music with Musique Electronic du Cosmos. Expect bits and bobs from synth pop's primitive stages and advertisement euphoria in these songs.

Niagara
Afire

More percussive elements than you can shake a stick at. All perfectly, seamlessly weaving in and out of one another these players are the nuts. Or just plain nuts. Originally released in 1973, and the third album by German percussion god Klaus Weiss (formerly of Sunbirds) fronted Niagara. Repressed by Wah Wah.

Flute & Voice
Imaginations of Light + Hallo Rabbit

A reissue of the 1970 album Imaginations of Light and Hallo Rabbit from 1973, two albums from Flute & Voice who are Hans Reffert (the Flute) and Hans Bredeis (the Voice). They’re selling themselves a bit short though as the two play an array of instruments on the albums to create two eastern inspired albums with whisps of psychedelia, jazz and acoustic experimentation throughout. Imaginations of Light became one of those hidden gems of the Krautrock scene and Hallo Rabbit was not released until on CD in 1995. This is the first time Hallo Rabbit is released on vinyl in the original gatefold designed for Imaginations of Light. Limited to 500 copies.

Popol Vuh
Aguirre

After 40 years, Popol Vuh’s 1972 soundtrack to Werner Herzog’s Aguirre, released originally in 1975, is available to the public again. This release of the hypnotic and engrossing soundtrack to that dystopian and intense film shows how good the music was: uplifting with an underlying sense of dread, but, thankfully, not as terrifying as Klaus Kinski. Also features a bonustrack.

Popol Vuh
Das Hohelied Salomos

Reissued after 40 years, Popol Vuh’s second album is finally available to the public again. Filled with epic (and I do not use this word lightly) guitars and bombastic orchestrations, Das Hohelied Salomos is perhaps one of the pinnacles of 70s progressive rock done well. Put it on and forget about your day job for a bit! Comes with three previously unreleased bonus tracks.

Popol Vuh
Letzte Tage, Letzte Nächte

39 years after is original release, Letzte Tage, Letzte Nachte makes its return to its original vinyl medium. Remastered and featuring one bonus track, Popol Vuh’s most rock-oriented recording is back in all its 1970s German progressive rock greatness. Expect vocal harmonies supported by guitars enmeshed in each other's solos.

Popol Vuh
Herz Aus Glass

A piece of music so good they released it twice… Herz Aus Glass is Popol Vuh’s soundtrack to Werner Herzog’s film of the same name, and flows with radiant golden vibrations in true Popol Vuh style. Reissued in either the original German sleeve (this one) or the original French one (Coeur De Verre).

Popol Vuh
Coeur De Verre

A piece of music so good they released it twice… Coeur De Verre is Popol Vuh’s soundtrack to Werner Herzog’s film of the same name, and flows with radiant golden vibrations in true Popol Vuh style. Reissued in either the original French sleeve (this one) or the original German one (Herz Aus Glass).

Popol Vuh
Nosferatu - Original Soundtrack

Werner Herzog and Popol Vuh had a wonderful and long-running creative relationship, Herzog’s curious cinematic visions matched with Popol Vuh’s exploratory (and consistently beautiful) instrumentals. Nosferatu actually contains two discs, with material that both soundtracked and was inspired by Herzog’s vampire picture. On spooky red and black transparent vinyl.

Via Lactea
Via Lactea

Via Lactea (Latin for Milky Way, fact fans) were a Mexican rock group, and this self-titled album was their major statement, released 35 years ago. Carlos Alvarado lead the band, who specialised in prog rock with a strong electronic element. This reissue on Wah Wah is beautifully screen-printed on metallic copper cardboard.

Hardy Kukuk
Atemnot

Atemnot is another example of seminal early komische music that has been buried out of print for ages, reissued on vinyl at last. Hardy Kukuk explores his synth, with accompaniment from tape-treated guitars and congas, for an electronic trip of psycha-space-delic proportions. Remastered and released by Wah Wah.

Ictus
Ictus

Gatefolded LP limited to 500 copies, on Wah Wah. Originally released in 1974 Andrea Centazzo was credited with playing the whole album, and Ictus being used as an album name, this has been corrected for this reissue, citing fellow band members Armando Battiston and Franco Feruglio. Transforming all the time, it features incredible percussion and synthesisers and is captivatingly futurist jazz.

Ariel Kalma
Le Temps Des Moissons

New age innovator Ariel Kalma meshed together instruments and electronic effects to create tones that sounded jarring but warming at the same time. His 1975 debut, Le Temps Des Moissons, shows his experiments in their primordial state, with a lot of Eastern influence seeping into each composition.

Gregor Curten & Anselm Rogmans
Planes

Wah Wah Records are reiussing this "rare" record from 1974 and intend to keep it that way by limiting it to 500 copies. The record consists of two twenty minute electronic drones performed by two experimentalists - Gregor Cürten handling organ and guitar and Anselm Rogmans messing around with organs, tape recordings and synths. They're informed by both kraut music and newer, darker textures. Considered to be a "great, lost piece of kraut music history". 

Franco Leprino
Integrati... Disintegrati

Piano, Spanish guitar, flute and a Moog. Wait, what? Yes, back in ‘77 Italian Franco Leprino threw down a modern classical gauntlet with Integrati...Disintegrati, a distinctive blend of prog rock and the avant-garde. Rich in emotional textures and New Age goodness. Out on remastered vinyl LP from Wah Wah. Limited to 500 copies.

The Spoils of War
The Spoils of War

The Spoils of War were a lesser-known 60’s psych group who dabbled with experimental electronics at a time when that was pretty much strictly an academic pursuit. A bold and remarkable sound: too much so for the time apparently, as little was ever released. Until now! This double LP (with bonus 7”) contains all their studio recordings, including plenty being heard for the first time.

O.P.M.C.
Amalgamation

From 1970 and re-released to great acclaim, OPMC or Oldest Professional Music Company were a duo of Barrie Webb and Teun van der Slikke backed up by a variety of musicians including Peter van der Sande and Onny Lopulalan. Psychedelic folk music was on the decline by the 1970s, but this is truly a burst of light in the grey dusk of the genre.

Mario Molino
Gli Angeli Del 2.000

Psyche goodness from Mario Molino with his soundtrack to Gli Angeli Del 2.000. Loads of fun and outrageously groovy, Mario is somewhat overlooked compared to his contemporary's of Italian film music. The LP from Wah Wah contains the original sound track along with a bunch of studio extras. The band is hot, the tunes are whacky brilliance, and you probably recognise a certain cartoon theme tune from one of the tracks. Only 500 copies.

O.P.M.C.
Product Of Pisces And Capricorn

Oldest Professional Music Company or O.P.M.C. were folk rockers. This album, their second, started to really get to grips with their sound, adding more 1970s rock to their eclectic music. Remastered and rereleased by Wah Wah comes in a beautiful gatefold sleeve with photos and liners notes and is limited to just 500 copies.

Ticket
Awake

Turning it up and out with Ticket. Awake is the 1972 debut LP from the New Zealand voodoo children. You can tell these fellas have been influenced by all the greats with their psyched-out guitars, soulful and sometimes bombastic vocals, heavy bass and groovy drums. Think psychy blues driven soulful funk from the other side of the globe. Remastered and out on vinyl LP from Wah Wah.

Suck Electronic Enciclopedic
Asfixia al carrer València

From the ashes of Franco’s Spain came Suck Electrònic Enciclopèdic, here with their lost recordings from 1975 and 1976. The line up never stayed the same and this fluidity of members helped to create what is still exciting, innovative music. The band built their own synthesizers helping them to build their unique sound. Proto-hipster progressive avant-garde. Good for beard-strokers. Vinyl.

Heldon
Heldon IV

Presumably the fourth Heldon album, also known as Agneta Nilsson. First released in 1976, this chunky bit of French psychedelic rock has been reissued by Bureau B. The band dart between synth-jams, gentle ambience, and genuine guitar led freak outs. Not sure what's going on on the album art but I hope the baby's okay.

The third album from French psychedelic rockers, Heldon reissued by Bureau B. Here you'll find two discs (CD or vinyl) of long, dark jams, all heavy on the guitar and synth. On the album Heldon ringleader Richard Pinhas is quoted as saying "dark is not negative to me". No dark without light! Upwards, to space!
