VINYL VERSIONS NOW AVAILABLE!!! Oh man, today's deliveries are so exciting. Perhaps pick of the bunch are the four early Moondog joints we've got with Moondog and His Honking Geese coming on 10" along with Moondog and His Friends, plus the LPs More Moondog and The Story of Moondog, originally issued on legendary jazz labels like Prestige back in the 50s. The depth and breadth of the pretend tramp's compositions is pretty astounding, with elements of jazz, classical, and musique concrete all in the mix as well as influences from just about every corner of the globe. Phil quite rightly points out that some of it is quite reminiscent of foley, that sound effect creating art. Much of it was played and recorded on the streets of New York, complete with the ambient sound of the city going about it's business around him. On the whole, this is some of the most purely listenable and accessible avant-garde music you're ever likely to hear so don't let that particular tag put you off.. You'd be missing out on a sound world of pure joy, not a chin-strokey challenge. I'd suggest doing a bit of reading up about this total one-off genius if your interest's been piqued, he's a well interesting fella and a very rare talent. All of these vinyls are timeless classics and get our highest possible recommendation! Brettski x
