Jose Prates / Miecio Askanasy
Tam... Tam... Tam...

Prior to this vinyl LP reissue, Jose Prates and Miecio Askanasy’s 1958 Brazilian jazz record had the inauspicious reputation of being both of landmark importance and staggeringly rare at the same time. Luckily, Trunk records have decided to get it back in print. Fittingly for a record Gilles Peterson said he’d pay £1000 for, it’s an incomparable mixture of jazz, funk and bossa nova.

John Cameron
Kes (Original Soundtrack Music)

One of the great British films of all time, Ken Loach's 'Kes' is an atmospheric classic for any of us who grew up in the North of England but the soundtrack by John Cameron is equally evocative. He put together a crack jazz line up to get into the heart of the film and so the soundtrack will appeal to jazz as well as film buffs. A beautiful daydream antidote to an all too real South Yorkshire nightmare. This is the real thing. This is beauty so fragile it hurts" says Jarvis Cocker in his liner notes.

David Shire
The Conversation (Original Movie Soundtrack)

David Shire’s score to The Conversation has never been released in full on vinyl before. The film itself, released in 1974, directed by Francis Ford Coppola and starring Gene Hackman, is a masterful study of audio surveillance. A film with such a theme requires a well considered score, and that’s what we have. The score is notable for its minimalism which suits the tense but minimal action, very much going against the fashion at the time for overblown orchestral scores. LP on Trunk.

Jim Wilson
God's Chorus

In 1992, David Carson and The Little Wolf Band released Medicine Songs, an album of atmospheric New Age folk and spoken-word songs. For the closer, Carson’s nephew (and the album's producer & keyboardist) Jim Wilson recorded crickets chirping in the backyard one night, then duplicated the recording and slowed one layer down by several octaves. Perhaps surprisingly, the result is a melodic, ghostly choral sound. The isolated recording has been on SoundCloud for six years and streamed a thousand billion times; enter Jonny Trunk to bring us a vinyl version at last.

Spider-Jazz – KPM Cues Used In The Amazing Animated Series - That We Are Not Allowed To Mention For Legal Reasons

I would have to believe that the title says it all, for this one. A 1967 cartoon about a web-slinger (maybe) who has become an internet sensation (maybe) is given the physical soundtrack it deserves, it's dramatic detective jazz given this beguiling release. A must-have for fans of music and mishaps in television history.

Alec Cheer
Night Kaleidoscope (Original Soundtrack)

For the  soundtrack to Grant McPhee’s multi-faceted indie detective film, Night Kaleidoscope, Alec Cheer looks to the heavyweights for inspiration. The sounds of John Carpenter, Brian Eno, Goblin and  Fabio Frizzi have all played their part in shaping this dark and dazzling electronic work. LP on Trunk.

Britxotica Goes Wild! Percussive Pop and Crazy Latin

Trunk brings us the latest instalment -- volume 5! Five! -- of the ongoing Britxotica series of compilation LPs. Legendary tastemakers Johnny Trunk and Martin Green cull and round up 16 more obscurities from pre-Beatles Exotica Britain with the emphasis on lively and fun, always. A previously (somewhat shady), forgotten genre of the era it's fair to say. Latin dance, cha-cha flavours and too-excitable-for-loungecore numbers abound; includes a great version of "House Of Bamboo" and plenty of other things of their time -- including a Ted Heath track that introduced classic telly "John Craven's Newsround". My, we are showing our age now.

Ted Dicks
Virgin Witch (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

One out of leftfield for you folks. Ted Dicks was incredibly successful in the 60s with his music partner Myles Rudge, producing a long list of popular novelty songs including Right Said Fred, and Hole In The Ground. Working solo Dicks also made the Catweasle theme tune and scored a couple of films, including Virgin Witch which was a racey and x-certified film about lesbian witches. The music itself is a mix of baroque pop and jazz that you would ‘obviously’ expect from a raunchy horror film.

Basil Kirchin
Silicon Chip

Basil Kirchin was an astonishing Hull-based musician and composer, who worked with orchestras, tape machines, avant-garde explorations and pop songs for many years, but with little recognition till Trunk got reissuing after his death. Silicon Chip is a properly funky slice of 1979 disco that jumps right into your head even though you’ve never heard it before. Yellow vinyl 7” on Trunk.

Basil Kirchin Is My Friend – A Trunk Records Sampler

Courtesy of the good people at Trunk, this is a sampler of the music of the experimental music polymath. His oeuvre took in pretty much took in everything from field recordings to jazz to soundtrack music, horror and post punk. With such a rich and varied history of recording this is as good a place as anywhere to begin. 

Zwartjes
Tapes 1

Trunk proudly add this gem to their catalogue of the weird, wonderful and experimental. Tapes 1 is a direct recording from the original archived tapes of experimental underground Dutch film director Frans Zwartjes, who improvised his bizarre soundtracks utilising synthesizers, voice and found sound. Only a very small amount of his audio has been released before on very limited cassettes, these are on vinyl for the first time.

Join Jonny Trunk in his explorations of the weird and wonderful kitsch world of Britxotica: the music made by 50’s / 60’s British composers pretending to be from exotic international locations.

Delia Derbyshire and Elsa Stansfield
Circle Of Light – Original Electronic Soundtrack

An absolutely essential purchase for any fans of BBC Radiophonic Orchestra/early day synth, this very rare soundtrack created in 1972 by legendary composer Delia Derbyshire (along with artist Elsa Stansfield) finally gets a re-issue on the ever inquisitive Trunk records. They came up with a mix of sound design, tape manipulation and natural environmental sounds for Anthony Roland's 1972 film about the slides of radical stills photographer Pamela Bone.

TROPICAL BRITXOTICA! Polynesian Pop and Placid Jazz from The Wild British Isles!

Ah exotica, that curious creature. Where (in this case) British musicians dress up as what they imagine musicians from distant lands sound like, with strange and wonderful results.

LP release on Trunk.

Alan Jefferson
Galactic Nightmare

Man alive, this is something. A dude called Alan Jefferson decided one day in the 1970s that he wanted to make a musical space epic, and so he did, using whatever equipment he had to hand. Galactic Nightmare is the astonishing result, sounding like little else. This is the first proper release the 86-minute magnum opus has had, all thanks to Trunk.

Britxotica! London's Rarest Primitive Pop and Savage Jazz

Britxotica is a term conjured up to describe the sounds that were whirling around in late 50’s / early 60’s Great Britain, when musicians and listeners had heard of international travel, but hadn’t quite tried it yet. So they did it themselves, conjuring up brightness and even a smattering of groove. The Britxotica compilation is out on Trunk.

Bruce Lacey
The Spacey Bruce Lacey Vol.1

British eccentric Bruce Lacey has been the subject of a Ken Russell film, collaborated with artists as diverse as Throbbing Gristle and The Beatles (he appeared in the film Help!), and exhibited art in the Institute of Contemporary Arts. Now, for the first time on vinyl, a selection of his avant garde soundtracks and improvisations can be heard in all their glory. Limited availability so hurry.

Delia Derbyshire & Anthony Newley
Moogies Bloogies

A truly bizarre lost recording getting unearthed here by the estimable Trunk. Never released before, this is a collaboration between actor and songwriter Anthony Newley, whose best-known compositions include 'Feeling Good', the 'Goldfinger' theme and the score to 'Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory' (recently covered in its entirety by Primus), in a rare electronic setting thanks to the gentle futuristic beepings of none other than BBC Radiophonic legend Delia Derbyshire, who apparently didn't like the results at the time but grew fonder of it later in life.

Vernon Elliot
The Clangers

Until the day comes when we can hear the Button Moon soundtrack pressed onto vinyl we must be content with this re-press of Vernon Elliott's soundtrack for Oliver Postgate's classic The Clangers series for infants. Recorded in a church hall in Kent in the late '60s this was originally released to acclaim on Trunk in 2001.

Bruce Lacey
The Spacey Bruce Lacey

Here's another thing on Trunk who are always interesting if nothing else. This is an album by Bruce Lacey a musician and film-maker who has worked with everyone from The Beatles to Throbbing Gristle. This is a collection of his improvised music using household objects as well as a modified synthesizer ranging from droning trance to oddball music concrete and has been compared to Tangerine Dream. Lacey once built a robot which won the alernate Miss World and has been involved in a ridiculous amount of things over the years  across an enormous breadth of disciplines.  The CD comes in jewel case with a 16 page booklet and compiles tracks from the 'Vol1' and 'Vol2' LP's. Another eccentric but worthy re-issue from Trunk. 

Bruce Lacey
The Spacey Bruce Lacey Vol.2

Much of the music on 'The Spacey Bruce Lacey Volume Two', the second record from the artist who's collaborated with both the Beatles and Throbbing Gristle (but probably not at the same time, you know?), was made on a home-made synthesizer he bought from a schoolboy. The music reflects Lacey's warped, wonderful vision, ranging in its utilisation of electronic music, as long as it's experimental.
