Johan G Winther
The Disappearing Act

Long time friend of Brian Records releases his third offering of sonic brokenness. After a minidisc, dictaphone cassette and 8" record with 50 different individually made sleeves, this latest offering is more straightforward in presentation. A double 10" set of lathe cut records (the final side is left blank for you to add your own ending) housed in a hand made sleeve and featuring 7 photographs (one on the cover and 6 more inside). Each one relating to one of the 7 tracks. I first heard these songs 4 or 5 years ago. Whilst on the long daily commute to London. Rain streaking down the windows. The silent commuters occasionally disturbed by the sounds of someone deep asleep and dreaming of their own bed. This was one of the worst years of my life. And Johan's music was a moment of comfort at the start of the long, slow journey into work every day. Watching the sun rise. Years have passed and healed the pain of that commute. As I awoke from that dream I again listened to the music of Johan. Whilst the memory of the commute had dulled the music was as aching and beautiful as ever. Sounds wheezing into life. Harmonies breaking free for a moment before being sucked back into the drone. Limited to just 25 copies. Sold out at source. Norman records have the last 6.

Ersatz
Hints of...

I met with Ersatz one dark evening, crouched around a table at the back of Bristol's folk house. That night I set them a challenge. To create a number of two minute tracks each with no more than two instruments. They wilfully failed. And I am so glad they did. The early sketches became songs, became a narrative, became a thing of wonder and of joy. So we have 9 tracks (plus a bonus 3" CDr with 4 more) spread over two 10" lathe cut records. All wrapped in a hand made hairy manilla sleeve with a photo of a drawing attached to the front. The music inside will make you sad, it's ache gently resonating with your own sadness. Beautiful, moving music. The crackle of the lathe cut record only adding to the intimacy of the moment. Limited to just 25 copies. Sold out at source. Norman records have the last 6.

Andrew Broder
Picture of the Hostage Holding Today's Newspaper

Right, it's time to get it together with Andrew Broder. Hostage Holding Today's Newspaper are the far out excursions from the Fog man. This is a free jam, with Broder going to town and doing what he does best, which is putting all sorts in a pot and making a deliciously jagged & jarring yet warm stew from whatever sonic matter he fancies. This one is on 5, yes FIVE, cassette tapes to capture the full experience and is being put out on Brian Records.

James Norman MEng PhD CEng MICE FHEA
Brian Book

The Brian Book documents the development of Brian Records, who’ve made a much loved name for themselves by releasing small presses of unusual, obtuse, strange and exciting records over the past five years. This book is full of humour as well as lots  practical life lessons for anyone thinking of starting a label based on a love of unusual formats. Like everything else Brian related, The Brian Book is limited to 50 copies, unorthodox and very very special.

Immigrant
No Claim

Immigrant attempts the "5 inch challenge", an invitation from Brian Records to write two minutes worth of material. Fortunately, this prolific songwriter already has an arsenal of miniature tunes and so the whole challenge came pre-completed. No Claim is actually a record that looks back on a grand total of twelve two-minute songs from the plaintive, quirky and always beautiful song-writing voice of Graeme McNab.
