A Fistful Of Spaghetti - Audion Italian scrapbook (2022)

 

For those that wanted all the Italian and related content from Audion magazine, here is your dream request answered.
As a companion to our book edition of "A Fistful Of Spaghetti", the "Audion Italian scrapbook" is culled from Audion issues
1 to 71 (the current issue at the time of compilation). It is compiled in a rough A-Z format, with artist and label articles first, followed by special features, and an A-Z reviews section. It all amounts to yet another way of discovering this special scene.

 

The A Fistful Of Spaghetti "Audion Italian scrapbook" comes as 2 pdf files totalling 124 pages. The YouTube video is a taster of the first draft version. It will be available at https://audion1.bandcamp.com/ (date to coincide with the book publication) for the crazy price of £5 GBP.

 

Important notes: This publication is for those that don't want to buy all issues of Audion magazine and just want the Italian and related content in a convenient magazine type format.

Compact Discs

 

New special import...

 

BUBU - ANABELAS (PQR-Disques plusqueréel PQR011) CD £12.50 - Classic Argentinian 70s prog, whose sole album remarkably came across like "a mixture of Osanna, Univers Zero & National Health" to quote my old sales notes. p.s. A large write-up on Bubu can be found in Audion 71's Argentinian Prog & Psych article, here.

 

Krautrock & Kosmische Musik

 

CAN - SOON OVER BABALUMA (Spoon CDSPOON10: RM,RE) CD £11.00 - Furiously & heavily percussive, kinda tribal industrial head music, mostly instrumental & very energetic. © 1974.

HARMONIA - MUSIK VON HARMONIA (Grönland CDGRON149: RM,DP) CD £11.00 - Classic Cluster/Neu! hybrid, pre-"Zuckerzeit" trippy ambient space music & weird Eno-esque edge. © 1973.

Rock, Jazz, Folk, etc.

 

AFFINITY - AFFINITY (Repertoire REP 5268) CD £9.00 - A Vertigo collectable. Not a classic, but good brassy rock with a somewhat Julie Driscoll like female vocalist.

BROADCAST - BERBERIAN SOUND STUDIO (Warp Records WARPCD233) CD £11.00 - Excellent soundtrack to the wonderfully surreal movie set in an Italian film editing/dubbing studio, and an unlikely album for Broadcast, also featuring contributions from Nurse With Wound members & The Sonic Catering Band, also including a theme some may know from Opus Avantra & Alfredo Tisicco releases. © 2013.

CRESSIDA - CRESSIDA (Repertoire REPUK 1200: RM) CD £9.00 - 1970 debut by this dreamy Vertigo progressive, hints of King Crimson, Moody Blues, etc.

CLINT MANSELL - IN THE EARTH (Lakeshore Records/Invada LSINV266CD: DP) CD £11.00 - Experimental electronic based score to the bizarre Ben Wheatley film, with elements that remind me of early Cluster along with much that's original. © 2021.

Various Artists - THE BYG DEAL (B-Music BMS018) CD £9.00 - Compilation of tracks from BYG Records releases: Alice, Alpha Beta, Ame Son, Banana Moon, Coeur Magique, Gong, Vangelis, etc. Comes with O-card.

 

Records

 

CAN - TAGO MAGO (Spoon XLSPOON6/7_UK: RM,GF) 2LP £26.00 - Can's ultimate classic! Starting intensively mantric, this gets weirder & weirder, radical to the extreme. Great too! © 1971. Limited edition on orange vinyl, includes download code.

CAN - LIVE IN BRIGHTON 1975 (Spoon SPOON64: triple) 3LP £32.00 - Only a few days after the Stuttgart gig (19/11/1975), but with a very different set largely presenting "Landed" material, if in largely instrumental form. Limited edition on gold vinyl, includes digital download. © 2021.

CAN - LIVE IN CUXHAVEN 1976 (Spoon SPOON64) LP £23.00 - First set from their Hermann-Allmers-Halle, Cuxhaven, Germany 7/1/1976 concert. Limited edition on curacao vinyl, includes digital download. © 2022.

RENAISSANCE - RENAISSANCE (Repertoire REP 2278 V173: RM,GF) LP £18.00 - Legendary debut of trippy progressive with classical & folk touches, nothing like the later Annie Haslam lead incarnation. © 1969. 180g vinyl.

YAMASH'TA & THE HORIZON - SUNRISE FROM WEST SEA "LIVE" (Wewantsounds WWSLP59: GF) LP £23.00 - Originally a 1971 impossibly rare Japanese LP, & unknown of by us until a decade or so ago. This historic Yamash'ta concert super-session with legends Masahiko Satoh (Sound Breakers/Amalgamation) & Takehisa Kosugi (of Taj Mahal Travellers) is fascinating!

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.

Richard Pinhas - EAST WEST - LP/CD reissue on Bureau B

The Spacious Mind - THE DRIFTER - oddments compilation with 1 new track

probably some more East Euro reissues including Modry Efekt titles

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.
