This man was a true American hero. Here it is my great pleasure to present you with the complete remastered "Spotlight Kid Outtakes", a staggering 5-disc set of unreleased heaven. In FLAC because it deserves it.


(late edit: also, be sure to head over to Doom And Gloom From The Tomb for a link to the mono version of Safe As Milk, essential!)

Lots of deaths in the extended musical family lately.

First we pay tribute to the staggering genius of Peter Christoperson, with a long radio interview including some musical interludes.

William S. Burroughs - On The Nova Lark flexi

Great little record from the superb Kansas label Fresh Sounds... for what it's worth they also released the SPK and Embarrassment cassettes found elsewhere on this blog. Here we have WSB in a more soundscape oriented mood with his distinct crackling tone intoning what is most likely an excerpt from one of his books.

In FLAC because it's short...

Climax Golden Twins - live series

Released as a series of faux-78 style 10" records around ten years ago by Anomalous. Limited even when they came out (I think there were 250 copies of each one?) and even rarer these days. Happy Halloween - these aren't super scary but they sure do get noisy sometimes.

Sandy Denny - BBC video 1971

A special post here for the Doom & Gloom blog... please note that this is in archaic VCD format, but it should work in something like VLC.

Sufi Mind Game

Stunning power-duo action from Portland guitar legend Steven Wray Lobdell and former Hitting Birth drummer David Parks. Some classic "too rare for Discogs" items here this time, I figured I was overdue for a labor of love.

First up is this untitled live cassette (although it might be called "Complete Metamorphosis", see cover scan). I'm not sure if there is another tape or not, there was a review in Snipe Hunt magazine way back when but I was never able to ascertain whether it was the same one. This little beauty needed some serious resuscitation, particularly on the left channel. No sound processing was used other than gain adjustment.

Next we have their long-lost single for Holy Mountain (YAMA 002), complete with cover scans.

Finally, there was a single on the infamous Stomach Ache label, there was a cover but no track/recording info.

And as a little bonus I've included their track from the Bananafish compilation "My Baby Does Good Sculptures", the only thing that IS listed on Discogs from this lost treasure of a band. As always, any additional info or comments is appreciated.

Portland represent!

David Jackman - Sol Mara

Beautiful, hypnotic drone goodness from the man behind Organum. This was initially released as a 1-sided LP included with Organum's Ikon EP, later it was reissued on CD with bonus versions. Out of print and well worth your time.

The Fall - Bury (Record Store Day 7")

Fantastic song from their great new album, with non-LP B-side. Already sold out, much to Fall fans' frustration. This is a FLAC rip for better oomph.

More of Sir Richard Bishop, since the last one was pretty popular.

Strung Out (private limited CDR release)

Enjoy! Got a couple more on the way.

Trespassers W - Dummy 2LP

Named after a sign in the Winnie-the-Pooh books, this excellent Dutch band has continued to put out records over the years. Unfortunately this one is quite difficult to find these days, and of course it's my favorite. Kind of like a more theatrical, European version of The Ex, great stuff!

Amor Fati - Body W/O Organs LP

Another great release from this basement madman, from the mid-80's and long out of print. I think this is the last one I have, there are some other tapes posted in the archives.
