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.
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.
