Hoho, this is meaty meaty meaty. Pogus have put out a triple CD set of the music originally contained on the 10"s that went out with the Source music journal in the late sixties and early seventies and they've packaged it up in one of those double jewel cases that your mum's probably got The White Album in. I suppose I should say that it's called Source Records 1-6, 1967-1973. Expect drones, primitive electronics, Radiophonic Workshop-style sound experiments, field recordings, found sounds etc. from various avant-garde people including Alvin Curran and Alvin Lucier. This stuff has really come into fashion in the 'underground' music of the last few years and it's pretty remarkable how modern this stuff now sounds through that recontextualisation.. There's some seriously challenging noise on here that all but the most abrasive artists of today would be more than proud of - I love the idea of dopey hippies chancing across Robert Ashley's 'The Wolfman' somewhere and having their acid-addled brains stung to death by the swarm of pissed-up atomic war wasps it harbours. Sadly I don't have time to go through all three discs but it all looks like hugely interesting and entertaining stuff for those of us who like to cultivate a little beard from time to time. Incidentally, check out the torrents on The Avant Garde Project if this sort of thing is up your street, there's some incredible stuff on there!
