I See You

Gong’s 2014 LP ‘I See You’ was the final album they taped with founding member Daevid ‘Divided Alien’ Allen. This is a fittingly zany spree for Allen’s last hurrah, winding its way through a variety of psychedelic prog outposts - Krautrock, kosmische, motorik rhythms, library jazz and so on. Sounds like … well, it sounds like Gong.

Tangerine Dream
Quantum Gate

Some 50 years in 'the biz' later, Tangerine Dream have never settled for less than innovation. Edgar Froese sadly left us in 2015 but his latest updated vision for the totemic band is now laid out for all to hear, on Quantum Gate. Remaining members Quaeschning, Schnauss and Yamane promise a contemporary evolution of their sound, on a concept record which strives to translate quantum mechanics into sound. Warning: new doors may open. Double 180-gram vinyl gatefold LP, CD on Kscope.

Rejoice! I'm Dead!

28 albums. 28 albums! Rejoice! I'm Dead! is the 28th album from that there prog rock institution Gong. The album was first released in 2016, and was their first after the passing of co-founder Daevid Allen. The band, formed of new and old members, did justice to their friend's legacy with an album as assuredly Gong as the 27 others.

Richard Barbieri

Richard Barbieri releases the fifth and final instalment of the Variants series he’s been plugging away at these past couple of years. Variants.5 is another set of painterly electronics from the Japan/Porcupine Tree fellow. A lot of the stuff here is quite like Boards Of Canada or Amon Tobin, but sometimes Barbieri shifts gear and moves Variants.5 into a sort of !K7/Innervisions techno zone.

Richard Barbieri
Stranger Inside

Richard Barbieri was of course the keyboard player in Japan.. Since then he's had a decent enough career on his own with plenty of solo work and playing keyboards for Porcupine Tree. This is his 2008 solo album on vinyl for the first time which features guest spots from an array of characters including Steve Jansen (Japan) and Danny Thompson (Pentangle etc)    

Crippled Black Phoenix
The Resurrectionists

It’s about ten years since Crippled Black Phoenix first released The Resurrectionists, and as such the time feels right for a reissue. They’ve got one via Invada. The album is a Gothic and magisterial listen. From a base sound not dissimilar to Low the band incorporate everything from industrial textures to ambient piano interludes. This latest edition of The Resurrectionists is remastered and comes with new artwork.

Crippled Black Phoenix
Night Raider

Crippled Black Phoenix, if you didn’t know, are a sort of doom-/post-rock supergroup that features members of Electric Wizard and Mogwai. They make huge-sounding LPs of ‘endtime ballads’ called things like I, Vigilante and Night Raider. The latter, which initially came out in 2011 but has now been remastered and reissued, is what we’re dealing with here. This is music to satisfy the doomsday prepper in all of us.

Porcupine Tree

First released in 1996, Signify is the fifteen-track record from long running prog/psych outfit Porcupine Tree. A genuinely mesmerising affair, the record gives everything an indie-rock album should give- a classic blend of solid guitar riffs and deep, well thought-out drum patterns that align with the records’ time-period.


Could an album that covers sadism, scientology, and Winnie the Pooh be any good? That’s the question Mansun poses with their seminal (second, not 6th) album Six. We’ll let you be the judge. You can finally get your paws on a remastered release of this massive 1998 effort, which is pretty much the finest blueprint any late-stage progressive rock could ever ask for.

Pink Floyd
London 1966/1967

This pair of vintage Syd-era jams from the film Tonite Lets All Make Love In London have been available in various collectible formats over the years, and now resurface as a ten inch. There’s not much evidence of psychedelic free rock that predates this, a fearless exploratory dive into uncharted territory armed with little more than rudimentary musical skills and freshly turned-on brains, that stands up beside all kinds of Kosmische excursions and improv pals AMM. Interstellar Overdrive is the Ronseal moment, while Nick’s Boogie is way more frazzled than the title suggests.

Paul Draper
Attack Of The Grey Lantern - Live At The Ritz

Still on a high from last year’s well-received debut solo affair Spooky Action as well as the accompanying tour, reclusive ex-Mansun frontman Paul Draper asked the fans what they wanted on his Feb/March 2018 dates. They answered: alternative rock band Mansun’s chart-topping 1997 debut Attack of the Grey Lantern, please. And Paul duly obliged. Here’s a recording to prove it.

Open Mind - The Best Of Blackfield

Long-serving rockers Blackfield issue a Best Of collection via Kscope. The band draw from a five-album discography for Open Mind, and the fifteen tunes here serve as a neat overview to the body of work Aviv Geffen and former Porcupine Tree member Steven Wilson have built up over the years. Though Blackfield’s music has taken in everything from chamber-pop to trip-hop down the years, all of their stuff has a strong whiff of The Bends/OK Computer-era Radiohead.

Attack Of The Grey Lantern (21st Anniversary Remastered Edition)

At last we have a deluxe version of Mansun's 'Attack of the Grey Lantern'. This 21st anniversary remastered edition contains the original album plus on the deluxe edition 5.1 stereo versions, B Sides, radio sessions, photos and Paul Draper adolescent notebook. Features the 'classic' 'Stripper Vicar'.  

Paul Draper
Live at Scala

Once of Britpop middleweights Mansun, Paul Draper made a return to the fray in the mid-2010s with two EPs and a UK top-twenty album Spooky Action. This live record, recorded at London’s Scala (surprise surprise), sees Draper tear through his Jeff Buckley-ish solo stuff as well as wheeling out some of the old guns. Features nice versions of ‘Wide Open Space’ and ‘I Can Only Disappoint U’.

One EP

So, you’ve rocked out to Paul Draper’s first solo album, Spooky Action from August this year. Perhaps before that, his two 2016 EPs were your jam. Now you’re wondering: who is this man? Where did he come from? Could he have been in any other bands during the 1990s? Well don’t fear: Kscope Records knew you were coming!

Returning Jesus

First released in 2001, here is another chance for you to get your hands on Returning Jesus, a key statement from no-man. A sublimely subtle suite of art-rock songwriting with a smooth, lush, ECM-jazz instrumental palette. This reissue is available as a double LP or as a double CD, with the CD edition also including a stack of b-sides, demos and other associated rarities.

Paul Draper
Spooky Action

The press release states that Paul Draper was frontman of one "one of the most iconic bands of the late '90s". The band they are talking about is - unbelievably  - Mansun. They did though have a large cult following who have followed Draper into his solo work ensuring that his latest shows were regularly sold out. This will be much anticipated not least that the special super duper vinyl contains a mix by one idea post rock mainstays Public Service Broadcasting.  

Paul Draper
EP Two

Remember the band Mansun? They blessed the late 90s with an ambitious and unique style of alt-rock which rejected the Britpop formula that preceded it. Now their frontman Paul Draper is building up to a solo release with two EPs. EP Two is the second one... obviously. Expect hard-hitting alt-rock maximalism with poetic storytelling and a formidable voice that generates a decent amount of 90s nostalgia. Released as Vinyl 12" and CD on Kscope.

The Anchoress
Confessions of a Romance Novelist

Confessions of a Romance Novelist is the popular debut album from The Anchoress, full of grand and ambitious pop music. This is the deluxe new edition of the album, released as 2 CDs or as 2 LPs, with both editions featuring 5 exclusive bonus acoustic tracks. The CD set also includes a handsome booklet. On Kscope.

Paul Draper

EP One is the solo debut release of former Mansun frontman Paul Draper. Over the three tracks Draper gives us a revenge-themed rock ‘n’ roll blunderbuss, a 6-minute epic that could soundtrack a spy movie and a shimmering pop song. Mansun fans will be clammering to get their mitts on this.

Wars of the Roses

Norwegian band Ulver have always been hard to pin down, and their eighth album is no exception, whisking their history of black metal, post-rock and ambience into a progressive, song-based whole. First released in 2011, this reissue of Wars of the Roses presses the music onto pure white vinyl. On Kscope.

Always Returning

Always Returning comes with a 2-Disc 24 page booklet media book with the second disc being an instrumental version of the album. Engineers, who currently comprise Liverpudlian multi-instrumentalist Mark Peters, celebrated  German ambient artist/producer Ulrich Schnauss and London based drummer and composer  Matthew Linley, have been creating mesmerising music with brilliantly shaded guitar textures and  teasing lyrical ambiguities since 2004.
