Sacred Summits Vinyl, CD & tapes from this label at Norman Records
Morgan Fisher has had quite the career. Having been about for 50 odd years, Fisher was with the one hit wonders Love Affair in the ‘60s, moving onto Mott The Hoople and then into ambient and soundtracks with Yoko Ono among others. It is Fisher’s admiration of Erik Satie that inspired Inside Satie - an album of charming improvisations and surreal experimentations. Something Satie himself would have been proud of.

Psychick Warriors Ov Gaia
1989 was originally released in 1989 as a cassette. The Ov in Psychick Warriors Ov Gaia should tip you off to the strong influence of Coil and Throbbing Gristle etc., but these are hammering dance tracks, and not even of the Industrial kind. Four tracks on limited edition silk-screened LP, from Sacred Summits.
Sacred Summits returns in early 2014 with an album of previously cassette only compositions by Colin Potter that highlight the early development of his sonic soundscapes in the years preceding joining arch-industrialists, Nurse With Wound.
Based on the A Gain cassette only album of 1982, “Enter Again” takes the beautiful, ethereal drone of opening track, On Entering York Minster, as the main inspiration of the whole album.
Riding the birth of the DIY cassette tape scene that followed the punk explosion, Colin released 6 classic albums between 1980 and 1982, that have long since become collector’s items.
Sacred Summits, in tangent with Dom Martin’s Deep Distance label, are working on releasing a series of Colin’s music throughout 2014.
The release comes in beautiful hand silk-screened and numbered sleeves, has been remastered by Dubplate & Mastering and comes with special liner notes from Colin himself.
Interesting one, this. Luis Perez was one of the first people to undertake detailed research on the pre-colonial musical traditions of his native Mexico. In the early 80s, after almost a decade of travelling the country and recording the folk musics of the Maya, Nahuatl, Mazateco, Yoemem, Comcaac, Raramuri, Wixarika and other ethnic groups, the Mexican government sponsored Perez to make an LP that fused some of these sounds with his own brand of psychedelic electronica. The resulting LP, Ipan In Xiktli Metzli (Nahuatl for In The Navel Of The Moon), began a resurgence in interest in native Mexican music that continues to this day. Heard now, the likes of ‘Ketzalkoatl Yauh Miktlan’ could have been an influence on Animal Collective’s Feels. This reissue from Mr. Bongo includes the original listening instructions.
