A Field Guide To Post-Punk & New Wave
Cat: 854458
 
96-page hardback book
Notes: What makes New Wave... New Wave? It's the catchall name of punk's poppy offshoot, born in the 70s simultaneously in the United States and United Kingdom. But how would you describe New Wave's context in the zeitgeist of the time, or explain how this new electro-rock made people feel? Well, that's precisely what DJ and author Steve Wide explains in this handy book. In these pages, Steve explains the social and music industry climates of the 70s and 80s, unpacking the influence of the punk genre on NYC-based groups like the Velvet Underground and New York Dolls. There's also a timeline on the usage of the term New Wave - for a long chunk of the 70s it was used almost interchangeably with "punk". There are breakdowns on the key record labels, DJs, producers, engineers and magazines - all of which stitched their own layer on the New Wave patchwork. There are deep dives into controversies, rivalries and messy band breakups. And lastly, there's a dissection of how ripples of New Wave are still felt today, in recorded music and across wider pop culture. If you, or someone close to you, is obsessed with the minutiae of the New Wave movement, then this book is a must-have.

A Soft Hiss Of This World (by Tim Ingold, Carmen Pardo & Mikel R Nieto)
Cat: 765375 Rel: 11 Jun 20
 
paperback book
Notes: The research project "A soft hiss of this world" is focused on the loss in many aspects such as the loss of language as a result of the Anthropocene through the absence of certain states and processes that occur naturally in the environment like different states of water, snow and ice. In Finnish there are more than forty terms* to refer to them and because of the loss of these states in the landscape, the loss is also displaced to the language, in this case, the Finnish.

This research project took these words as a starting point to make hundreds of hours of recordings in the Finnish landscape. The sound of snow, ice and snowflakes are the reference and the sound material of this research project. And to obtain these sounds, as well as the possible sound differences between each snowflake, special and specific microphones were developed for this very specific and fragile recording process.
This book contains texts by three authors: Tim Ingold, Carmen Pardo and Mikel R. Nieto, on the research carried out by Nieto in Finland during 2016. The text by Tim Ingold opens the book and introduces the reader to the main subjects of the research: language, landscape, sound and listening. This text is easy to read and aims to immerse us in the Finnish landscape and in the listening act to its sounds and silences. Carmen Pardo's text unfolds first, the way in which the gaze and listening of the snow constitute the experience of a disappearance, of a concentration in the void or nothingness of which A Soft Hiss of this World participates.

The third text belongs to Mikel R. Nieto and is divided into four parts. The third part is a code that reflects the loss of most of the sound recordings made during his research with more than 600 hours of recordings. This code is the only thing that could be recovered from all recordings, except the only sound recording published in physical format as a transparent Flexi-disc.

The fourth part is the result of silencing each and every word by John Cage in his "Lecture on Nothing," leaving only the punctuation marks, such as commas, periods, separators and the last sentence of the text of Cage. Every time the transparent flexi-disc is played, the player needle wears away the vinyl and making the sound of the recording disappear. Therefore, each listening destroys the sound."

Can't Stop Won't Stop: A History Of The Hip Hop Generation
Cat: 316539 Rel: 01 Jan 90
 
Based on original interviews with DJs, b-boys, rappers, graffiti writers, activists, and gang members, with unforgettable portraits of many of hip-hop's forebears, founders, and mavericks, including DJ Kool Herc, Afrika Bambaataa, Chuck D, and Ice Cube.
Notes: Forged in the fires of the Bronx and Kingston, Jamaica, hip-hop has been a generation-defining global movement. In a post-civil rights era rapidly transformed by deindustrialization and globalization, hip-hop gave voiceless youths a chance to address these seismic changes, and became a job-making engine and the Esperanto of youth rebellion. Hip-hop crystallized a multiracial generation's worldview, and forever transformed politics and culture. But the epic story of how that happened has never been fully told until now.

Based on original interviews with DJs, b-boys, rappers, graffiti writers, activists, and gang members, with unforgettable portraits of many of hip-hop's forebears, founders, and mavericks, including DJ Kool Herc, Afrika Bambaataa, Chuck D, and Ice Cube, Can't Stop Won't Stop chronicles the events, the ideas, the music, and the art that marked the hip-hop generation's rise from the ashes of the 60s into the new millennium. Here is a powerful cultural and social history of the end of the American century, and a provocative look into the new world that the hip-hop generation created.

Choosing Death: The Improbable History Of Death Metal & Grindcore (by Albert Mudrian)
Cat: 760273 Rel: 20 Dec 19
 
Revised & expanded 384-page paperback book on the history of grindcore and death metal - with introduction by John Peel
Notes: In 1986, the idea that death metal and grindcore would ever impact popular culture was unimaginable. Initially circulated through a scattered tape-trading network of underground thrillseekers, bands rose from every corner of the globe and death metal and grindcore spread faster than a pandemic plague of undead flesheaters. By 1994, the genre's most prominent labels had sold millions of albums. Choosing Death examines the rise, fall, and resurrection through the eyes and ringing ears of the artists and entrepreneurs behind the movement. Features forewards by JOHN PEEL and SCOTT CARLSON (Repulsion). 384-page heavily-illustrated dexluxe softcover books with 16-page colour section.

Cuba: Music & Revolution: Original Album Cover Art of Cuban Music: Record Sleeve Designs Of Revolutionary Cuba 1959-90, compiled by Gilles Peterson & Stuart Baker
Notes: 'Cuba: Music and Revolution: Original Album Cover Art of Cuban Music: Record Sleeve Designs of Revolutionary Cuba 1959-90 ' is a stunning new deluxe 250-page large format hardback book compiled and edited by Gilles Peterson and Stuart Baker (Soul Jazz Records) that features many 100s of stunning and unique Cuban record sleeve designs made since the Cuban Revolution led by Fidel Castro in 1959. These album covers have rarely been seen (nor heard) outside of Cuba and show a rich previously hidden history of both music and design.

'Cuba: Music and Revolution' is the first ever book about Cuban record sleeve design and has been five years in the making, made in full co-operation with the Cuban government. The record sleeve designs reflect both the rich cultural Latin musical legacy of Cuba, as well as the political and aesthetic influence of revolutionary Communism, which manifests itself both in the music created on the island and the artwork of the designs included here.

Cuban music is the source of much Latin music in the 20th century. Salsa, the all-encompassing Latin music that came out of New York in the 1970s, and soon spread across Colombia, Venezuela, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and elsewhere, owes all of its success to the Cuban music on which it is fundamentally based.

These record sleeves help document the dramatic change in Cuba's identity from that of 1950s tourist paradise to socialist state. Following the Cuban Revolution in 1959, the United States imposed a trade embargo which exists to this day, and as a consequence the many 100s of Cuban records featured here have rarely been seen outside of Cuba.

The book is edited and compiled by Gilles Peterson, BBC broadcaster, record label owner, DJ, record collector, founder of Worldwide FM and Stuart Baker, founder of Soul Jazz Records. Together they have edited two earlier critically-acclaimed music and design books 'Freedom, Rhythm and Sound - Revolutionary Jazz Cover Art 1965-83' and 'Bossa Nova and The Rise of Brazilian Music in the 1960s'.

In conjunction with the deluxe book, Soul Jazz Records will be releasing an album also compiled by Gilles Peterson and Stuart Baker, charting the rise of Cuban music in the 1970s and featuring many of the artists who appear in this book.

Dead Moon: Off The Grid: by Eric Isaacson & Erin Yanke & Szim
Cat: 843715 Rel: 03 Sep 21
 
Dead Moon were a lo-fi Garage/Rock'n'Roll band from Portland, Oregon, active for almost 20 years between 1987 and 2006, during which time the band gained a mythical and legendary iconic status.
Notes: Dead Moon were a lo-fi Garage/Rock'n'Roll band from Portland, Oregon, active for almost 20 years between 1987 and 2006, during which time the band gained a mythic and legendary iconic status. 'Off the Grid' is a 'dizzying oral history'* about this most stubborn, idealistic and arguably wildest band in the world - a saga about love itself and the love of rock and roll, about DIY and about an improbable career.

The biography of singer Fred Cole (formerly of The Weeds, Lollipop Shoppe and The Rats before Dead Moon) is like a rollercoaster ride through countless bands and musical styles beginning in the Teenbeat era of the 60s driven by an invisible force and one big love. They cultivated their DIY code built around Fred's superstitions and avoidance of conventional music industry pitfalls.

They toured around the world, played in live clubs between Oregon, Europe and New Zealand.

They cut their own records and ran their own music store and label - Tombstone Music. Their story is completely unique in the pantheon of rock music; a group who never sold out, never

gave in and built a legacy of art and community in a sustainable way almost unheard of. The book is a tribute to their unique aesthetic, unbelievable twisted path of a story and role as pioneers of the Portland music scene. 'Off The Grid' is a declaration of love to DEAD MOON, to music in general and to rock and roll in particular.

The first two sold out US-editions of this book, first published on 2018 (DEAD MOON - The Book), are currently selling at an eye watering high price so we are now making it accessible as an affordable hardcover book (without the vinyl) for the European market.

The documentation tells the entire Dead Moon saga in the words of the band itself. Editor Simone "Szim" Müller spent weeks in Fred Cole's attic sifting through photos, flyers and tour diaries, collecting posters and T-shirts and conducting extensive interviews.

This third revised and updated edition contains 20 more pages than the original. The already extensive photo section now holds even more historical material, posters, flyers and, exclusive to this edition, an interview with Hans Kesteloo as well as an extended and completed discography & gig list.

Excuse The Mess Vol 1
Cat: 857942
 
Book accompaniment to Excuse The Mess compilations
Notes: Hidden Notes Records are proud to announce the release of a smorgasbord of new music in February 2022; creative collaborations born out of the award winning music podcast excuse the mess. Two compilation albums featuring 17 unique voices from contemporary music worlds and beyond...

How does a podcast = two albums worth of music?
Excuse The Mess is a music podcast with a twist - alongside your bread and butter artist interviews each guest takes on the challenge of writing a brand new piece of music on the fly, in the room and with excuse the mess host, Ben Corrigan.
They follow three rules (limitations are liberating!):
1. There can be no preplanning, it is spontaneous music making.
2. The track must be finished the same day.
3. Only one instrument can be used as a sound source but there can be electronic manipulations of it.

This release is the end result of each of those heart palpating writing sessions featuring Hannah Peel, Gold Panda, Anna Meredith, Galya Bisengalieva, Manu Delago, Robert Ames, Emily Hall, Oliver Coates, Mira Calix, Matt Calvert, Douglas Dare, Laura Jurd, Mark Lockheart, Emilie Levienaise-Farrouch, Anne Nikitin, Alev Lenz and Elliot Galvin. Released as two albums, to mirror the two series of excuse the mess in which they were made.

All the music fizzes with an energy that only fast paced work can invoke and the compositional fingerprint of each guest artist is embedded into the core of each track, whilst intermingling with Ben's own artistic voice. For anyone interested in a further delve they can go back to the podcast episode and witness the composition unfolding bit-by-bit, from the blank page to the finished piece, you are invited on that compositional journey.

Vol 1 and 2 will be released on the 4th February 2022 as digital downloads via Bandcamp and limited edition books available from some of the UK's leading Independent Record Stores ft interview extracts from podcast episodes, photos from the sessions, risograph prints, downloads and more...

Factory Records 1979-1980

Evocative photo book capturing early days of Factory Records
Notes: Part of Cafe Royal Books photographic publications series, this edition celebrates Daniel Meadows' photographs of Tony Wilson's early Factory Records roster, including Ian Curtis and Bernard Sumner of Joy Division, Vini Reilly of the Durutti Column, producer Martin Hannett, A Certain Ratio, and as a wild card, The Buzzcocks.

Meadows is a legend of social British photography. In 1973, he ran the Free Photographic Omnibus, a double decker bus that traveled England, with a fitted darkroom and living space, recording powerful portraits of everyday people in around twenty different towns. Some of these photos became his first book Living Like This.

This evocative set of photographs were taken during Meadows' further travels in the North of England in the late 1970s.

Notes: Large format catalogue documenting a multichannel installation by Florian Hecker at Kunsthalle Wien, transformated into a resonating space, with texts by curators, researchers, theorists, and art historians.

The catalogue collects essays by curators, researchers, theorists, and art historians on Hecker's work and its relation to topics ranging from musique concrète, Mallarmé's poem The Afternoon of a Faun, and computer music. The psychoacoustic phenomenon of Resynthese FAVN is illustrated via a series of tensor acoustic measurements resembling the colorized impressions of thermal imaging, which is followed by 270 pages of densely sprawling data tables abstracting sound and its textures into text.

Heavyweight Champion, by Amos Childs & Sam Barrett
Cat: 798279 Rel: 04 Nov 20
 
Paperback book
Notes: Mechanical Reproductions stay true to their original mission statement of being 'an outlet for editions of vinyl and print' and, for their third release, serve up a 48 page archive of some of the posters created by Young Echo's Amos Childs & Sam Barrett for the long running nights the collective have been running since 2010.

'Heavyweight Champion is the result of six years' collaborative collage works for Bristol's Young Echo collective.

The collective's 12 members have been running club nights, radio shows and releasing music since 2010. Two of them, Amos Childs & Sam Barrett (who also make music together as O$VMV$M), have been responsible for creating the posters to promote the club nights since the start.

These posters are a regular fixture in the visual landscape of the city, on walls, bins, bus stops and pretty much any other available surface in the lead up to each event. Their informal visual language immediately sets them apart from the other flyers vying for attention. They're intriguing: through not having the artist names featured as prominently as possible they encourage the viewer to take a deeper look. There's dense layers of images and cut-and-pasted phrases to be deciphered - ultimately a far more engaging experience than being shouted at by a generic and large-fonted neon specimen.

Thanks to the local council (and keen fans who would rather see them on their walls at home), more often than not these works are gone soon after they're tacked up, meaning the only archive of them is as low resolution images on various social media channels. 'Heavyweight Champion', then, aims to provide a lasting document of this unique and vital part of Bristol's musical culture...'

La Capture De L'inaudible by Matthieu Saladin

Software Edition on SD card in a Silkscreen booklet, including a text by Jonathan Sterne
Notes: La capture de l'inaudible, conceived by Matthieu Saladin, is the edition of a software acting like a reverse MP3 encoder. Where a classical MP3 encoder removes inaudible frequencies to reduce the size of an audio file, the reverse encoder gives these frequencies to listen, removing what the mp3 format usually keeps.

The software comes on a SD card, going along a booklet with a selection of texts on the inaudible, and a text written by Jonathan Sterne.

The SD card contains also the whole Artkillart catalog, re-encoded with Matthieu Saladin's software.

Tracks created with the software can be archived online, only on user's request, and participate to the constitution of a global inaudible library.

Led Zeppelin: Experience The Biggest Band Of The 70s: by Chris Welch
Notes: Led Zeppelin - a band unique in the history of rock 'n' roll. They were the biggest, the loudest and the best for an amazing ten-year reign in which they conquered the entire world with their heavy riffs, legendary performances and pioneering sound. But there was a serious side to the band, and their music was not simply bashed out - as songwriters and performers they knew no equal for a decade. The Story of Led Zeppelin recounts the history of the band in words from a man who witnessed many of their finest concerts, images from the cream of contemporary photographers, and rare memorabilia that is hugely evocative of the era.

Let's Put It To Music/20 Years Of
Cat: 710807 Rel: 04 Jan 19
 
224 page book with 7" vinyl
Notes: After having borrowed lines from Jimi Hendrix and English poets for all previous anniversary releases we struck out for this one until Kim, well after the deadline, accidentally stumbled over Johnny Cash and "Forever Words: The Unknown Poems". "Let's Put It To Music" quite nails it when it comes to the basic idea of the book and how we approach the whole process of making a record.

As Tim Gane is quotet in Adrian Shaughnessy's introduction "a Stereolab record was never finished until the cover was done". That rings true for Rune Grammofon as well, and we would like to add that a sleeve is never designed for the sole purpose of selling a product (it took 28 releases before an artist was pictured on the sleeve!), or necessarily reflect the music in any way (is that even possible?), but rather to establish a suggestive relation between the two, often based on the album title or a song title, but not in an obvious way.
After some 200 releases, I can't remember Kim ever "explaining" a sleeve design, and I can't remember me ever asking him. It's no secret that label founder Rune Kristoffersen is a big admirer of labels like Blue Note, Impulse, ECM, 4AD and Factory, to mention some labels with strong visual identities. But we can't recall another label that has worked with one designer exclusively for 20 years and 200 releases.

The exclusivity was a premise for our collaboration from the very beginning, but we certainly never had any expectations about how long we would be able to keep it going. Especially when considering that Kim is occupied on a number of arenas; as photographer, filmmaker, illustrator, painter, writer, musician, dancer and choreographer.
As one will discover, the book is far from being a catalog lining up the releases (it's not even "complete" or chronological in that sense), but gives an interesting insight by also including sketches, rejected designs and unused ideas that never left the drawing board... until now. Lists are a source of controversy, as Hedvig Mollestad discusses rather well in her text.

We haven't had much time for them either, but with the resurgence of music literature on all sort of subjects, they seem to have come alive again. And with the eclectic mix of artists on the label, why not give it a try? We figure the main funcion of lists is to arouse curiosity and hopefully lead to new cultural discoveries, which can only be a good thing. The idea of including a 7" single also came late and would depend on getting at last one track real quickly. To our delight, we miraculously ended up with what is surely three of the most beautiful tracks in our catalog, and all exclusive for this release.

Tracklist:

Side A:
1. Fire! Orchestra - Enter, Part One (With & Without Fire!)

Side B:
1. Maja SK Ratkje - Sja, Amioda
2. The Last Hurrah!! With Nora Zheng - Blues In Chinatown

Paloma Parfrey/Scrolls: After LA
Cat: 712173 Rel: 26 Nov 18
 
Limited edition book + CD
Notes: After L.A. is a lifetime as a moment. Not just a collection, but a consideration of what it means for an artist to have grown up, lashed out, and re-nested all within the extremely wide borders of Los Angeles. PALOMA PARFREY's ethos is immersed in LA history, both of the book smarts sort and the personally experienced. To some she is known as a chef. Others a punk diva. The majority of strangers in LA probably know her as the person always checking out 15 books simultaneously at the library. After L.A. pulls together all these things in the form of both a book and an album equal parts intertwined and standing on their own; much like the strange way the diversities of LA life and history work together.

Paloma Parfrey has been writing and performing poetry around LA since she was 13. Her band, THE SHARP EASE, was an integral part of the LA DIY punk scene throughout the '00s. Her bandmate for the CD portion of this release is BRIAN MILLER, who performed in the drum and voice quartet FOOT VILLAGE, is a member of the TRUE NEUTRAL CREW, and records music for film and TV. Together they are SCROLLS.

94-page book, 5"x7", with full colour cover and CD.

Prince: by Matt Thorne
Cat: 851254 Rel: 01 Jan 90
 
Paperback book
Notes: Legendarily reticent, perverse and misleading, Prince is one of the few remaining 80s superstars who still, perhaps, remains unexplained. Now a firm fixture in the pop canon, where such classics as 'Purple Rain', 'Sign o' the Times' and 'Parade' regularly feature in Best Ever Album polls, Prince is still, as he ever was, an enigma. His live performances are legendary (21 Nights at the O2 in 2007) and while recent releases have been modestly successful at best, his influence on urban music, and R'n'B in particular, has never been more evident. The Minneapolis Sound can now be heard everywhere.

Matt Thorne's Prince, through years of research and interviews with ex-Revolution members such as Wendy and Lisa, is an account of a pop maverick whose experiments with rock, funk, techno and jazz revolutionised pop. With reference to every song, released and unreleased, over 35 years of recording, Prince will stand for years to come as the go-to book on the Great Man.

Teen Movie Hell (by Mike "McBeardo" McPadden)
Cat: 726927 Rel: 27 Mar 19
 
"A Crucible of Coming-of-Age Comedies from Animal House to Zapped!" - by Mike "McBeardo" McPadden
Notes: Born in the drive-in theatre backseats of the 1970s, the demonic fun of Teen Movie Hell ignited the 1980s VCR, cable TV, and multiplex booms that burned well into the 1990s. Between George Lucas's American Graffiti (1973) and Richard Linklater's Dazed and Confused (1993), lust-driven laff riots on the order of Animal House, Porky's, Fast Times At Ridgemont High, and Revenge of the Nerds boomed at the box office and celebrated adolescent misbehaviour run amok.

Author Mike "McBeardo" McPadden (Heavy Metal Movies) passes righteous judgment, one boobs-and-boner opus at a time, plus penetrating insight from Eddie Deezen (Grease, Zapped!), Samm Deighan, Kat Ellinger, Wendy McClure, Katie Rife, Heather Drain, Lisa Carver, Rachel McPadden, Liz Mason, Christina Ward, and Kier-La Janisse.

Tap the keg, tailor your toga, and belly flop into an exploitation odyssey of bikini Beaches, summer camps, study halls, wayward teachers, cool camp counsellors, wet t-shirts, custom vans, sexy ESP, shower peepholes, and other overlooked penal code violations!

Times & Sounds: Germany's Journey from Jazz & Pop to Krautrock & Beyond, by Jan Reetze
Notes: 'GERMANY'S JOURNEY FROM JAZZ AND POP TO KRAUTROCK AND BEYOND' - This book is a journey - a ride through the depths of Germany's modern musical roots: at the beginning of the 1970s, experimental and progressive music in Germany developed far from the mainstream. Although few initially noticed it, it is now internationally celebrated as a cult phenomenon called "Krautrock". Today, bands like Kraftwerk, Can, Amon Düül II, NEU!, Cluster, and Tangerine Dream are considered pioneers of groundbreaking sound experiments. In order to understand the Krautrock era and its impact, it's worth delving deeper into the history of German rock music and taking a closer look at the overall picture. 'Times & Sounds' offers a comprehensive insight into the mechanisms of post-war Germany's music industry and sheds light upon its diverse musical styles, as well as their mutual influences and connections, which have received little attention until now: From the onset of German jazz and swing orchestras to the first rock'n'roll bands around Hamburg's Star Club and electronic synthesizer pioneers. From the intact world of schlager to agitprop and left-wing protest songs. From the avant-garde compositions of Stockhausen and his presumed disciples of Krautrock to the Neue Deutsche Welle. This book is a journalistic diary tracing Germany's dynamic culture from the late '40s to the early '90s. Those who take this journey experience the ups and downs of five decades, thus developing an understanding deeper than any other of the Krautrock phenomenon. Foreword by Hans-Joachim Roedelius (Kluster/Cluster/Harmonia).
