work in progress...

A Fistful Of Spaghetti
Italian music encyclopedia A4 soft-bound book

We wanted to publish this book 20 years ago, but we were far from having all the info we need to do a proper job. Now, having heard everything of repute from this wonderful scene, we managed to get it all together and organise it into a book format.

The basic articles, discographies and layout are all complete. So, it's now up to Steve to do his editorial job, which means there's still a bit of work to be done, but it could be out later this year or early in 2021, if we can get enough pre-orders and raise the funds that is. Once we've finalized the number of pages and sought out some quotes we'll run a fund-raiser.

For more info and updates go to the Ultima Thule site web page or join our Italian progressive & underground Facebook group.

Endgame - LIQUID TIME (AMCDR 302) CDR - brand new 20th anniversary 2019 session! After a hiatus of several years, except for the occasional Quadelectronic performance, this 20th anniversary session from Endgame just goes to show that the daring spirit of Endgame has not at all died out. Fresh and vital, this mixes some well-worn ideas with lots of new ones, and obviously some ideas leeching through form parallel projects Triax and Approaching Infinity. So, expect both the familiar Endgame style (if there is such a thing) embellished by a lot that is different.

Coronavirus health crisis

During these difficult times Ultima Thule will keep on running as long as the mail service keeps working.
Luckily, as we work from home, with a post office just around the corner, it is mostly business as normal for us.
So, please keep your orders coming and make sure that we can stay busy supplying you with great music over the next weeks.
Remember, you can order by email, Facebook or phone, and also keep in touch with us via our various Facebook pages.

Please note that most venues are closing their doors until who knows when? So all gigs are off. I'll add any updates on the gigs page.
The Faust gig at the Union Chapel, London, 8 May has been postponed, and a new date has been announced in October.
Anyway, hope we all get through this okay, and best wishes to all our customers/friends. Keep well and keep on enjoying the music!

Late news: on 30th of June Leicester was put back on Lockdown, for two weeks, pending review.

Other info, queries, etc...


Monster Melodies Records...

Thinking of stocking a few releases on Monster Melodies Records ‎from France. Mostly unreleased recordings of the French 1970s underground. These are LP only, and are not cheap (will be around £25 retail I think), and include: Xalph (moody Shub Niggurath / Eskaton type band), Robert Wood And Woodlands - Live at Lons Le Saulnier, 1974 (excellent trippy psych/prog by electric vibes player, Gong & Lard Free related), Eclosion - Eclosion (excellent trippy folk-psych/experimental, ex Ame Son), Moving Gelatine Plates (unreleased sessions and live), etc.
Anyone interested? More info at: https://www.discogs.com/label/613034-Monster-Melodies-Records
I'm after listening copies of those listed below to decide if we need to stock them (only edited track samples can be found online)...
Dies Irae MMLP08, Jacques Dudon - Erosion Distillée MMLP09, Satan MMLP10, Contrepoint MMLP11, Calcium MMLP12, Xalph MMLP13


Souffle Continu Records...

Another label I need to stock, once we can raise the funds to do so. Lots of great rare stuff on the label.

13 June 2020: German progressive & underground - Facebook group created.


23 May 2020: Another job to do on the Ultima Thule web site

I use Microsoft Word as my web designer, and PayPal are no longer supporting Word html due to "security issues" so I'm moving all automated PayPal sales to Bandcamp. This means I've also set up Auricle versions of Poultry Products and Interstellar Cementmixers pages on Bandcamp. I have also put all stock copies of Audion on Bandcamp, and am also adding multimedia digital versions of many out of print issues (see above panel).

I did need to do a revision throughout the release pages on the Ultima Thule site anyway, so that images show correctly when shared on Facebook.

Of course, in the future, this means one less thing for me to set-up, although I now will need to revise the p&p charges on Bandcamp! So, whilst I'm undertaking this mammoth task, it's maybe time for you take advantage and get some discs before prices go up. This is still work in progress!
