Anima-Sound - Im Lungau
This is an interesting album, the first issuing of live recordings made in 1977 by the German Anima-Sound. I say interesting because it rewrites improv in my head (at least) and challenges my thoughts on improv as a genre. Non-idiomatic improvisation has come to suggest to me an academic, almost scientific disposition: the notion of a disciplined researcher committed to the pursuit of sound and technique, and nothing else. Anima-Sound, wife and husband duo Limpe and Paul Fuchs, have reminded me that this is not the only route into uncharted non-idiomatic territories.
A Wall Of Text - A Wall Of Text- Issue #1

A Wall of Text is a large format A4 zine focusing in on all things walled noise. This first issue runs twenty-four pages, and is color through-out with a great blend of interviews, articles, set-up chat, and wall noise-related art…and it really is something the scene has been needing for a long time.


Les Cauchemars Naissent La Nuit - 1970
1970 is the sixth release from Les Cauchemars Naissent La Nuit- one of the more recent & straight forward wall noise projects from respected French noise maker Julien Skrobek. It’s a self-released tape that appeared in July of this year taking in two fifteen-minute walls- one on each side of tape- with once again the focus/ theme of the release been Jess Franco’s dreamy & tripped-out exotic horror 1970’s Nightmares Come At Night.
Vitalina Varela - Vitalina Varela(Blu Ray)
Vitalina Varela is a 2019 arthouse film that ushers us into a universe of shadows, half-light, and darkness where it plays solemn & mysterious drama, that’s edged with metaphysical horror and grim gothic torches. It’s a film where real and non-real bound and at times blur, and where time it’s self seems to drift and at points almost grind to a halt. Here from Second Slight is a recent region free Blu Ray of the film, taking in some worthy extras and an inlay booklet.
Mr Fox - Mr Fox/ The Gipsy
Mr. Fox were formed in 1970 by multi-instrumentalist Bob Pegg and his fiddle playing wife Carole Pegg (later Carolanne Pegg). They released two classic albums of eclectic 1970s acid folk music, both of which are collected here and both of which are now deemed masterpieces of the genre. On both albums the couple were backed by Alan Eden on drums and Barry Lyons on electric bass, also appearing on their self titled debut were Andrew Massey on cello and John Myatt on woodwind instruments.
Alejandro Jodorowsky Collection - Alejandro Jodorowsky Collection( Blu Ray & CD set)
Alejandro Jodorowsky is one of the cinemas great & distinctive auteurs- his films are laden down with own brand of surrealism, symbolism, and general wack-ness- with his output falling somewhere between exploitation & arthouse. So from watching just a few minutes of one of his productions you most certainly know you're watching a Jodorowsky film. Since the late 1950’s he’s directed just nine full-length production- but each of these has been very distinctive creations, and he’s never watered down or diluted his focus & output. Here from Arrow Video is a very much deserved new Blu Ray and CD box set celebrating the work of this true one-off- it takes in four of  his films, and CD soundtracks for two his most infamous/ revered films, as well as a good selection of extras, a double-sided fold-out poster & six collector's postcards.
