Another one of my own releases now; live improvised jams recorded late night in a castle, then chopped up for a collage. These  recordings weave around a version of Charles Manson's 'Is there No One in Your World but You?', also recorded that evening.

Seventh Sons - Raga (4 A.M. At Frank's)


ESP Disk 1968

01 Raga (Part One)
02 Raga (Part Two)

The title and cover art give away this late night (early morning) jam session. Flutes, guitars and chanting. Improvised drone raga freak out with weed being another member of the band.

As the liner notes say "They are for real!!!"

Laddio Bolocko - Strange Warmings Of Laddio Bolocko


Hungarian 1997

01 Goat Lips
02 Call Me Jesus
03 Nurser
04 The Man Who Never Was
05 Dangler
06 Y Toros

Laddio Bolocko only came to my attention this year with the compilation 'Laddio Bolocko - '97-'99'. New York art rock noise rock with CAN vibe towards experimentation and improvisation.

Debut album 'Strange Warmings Of Laddio Bolocko' comes from 1997 and is an avant garde blast.
