Cotton Mather - "Kontiki" buy it here on vinyl very limited, free postage!

COTTON MATHER - "KONTIKI" (SUGARBUSH SB068), the first issue in our micro press series. Issued for Sugabush collectors and customers primarily in a super limited edition of only 120 copies! Most were on pre-order from a few years ago, when we got the go ahead from Robert of the band to issue this on Sugarbush. It then sort of went quiet for a while but here we finally are. The release is in mid-April but you can order copies here and now. If you've not heard of this lovely album here are some words from an original review in 1997 (see below). It is pretty obvious that our own ORGONE BOX album (made by my old bandmate / mate RICK CORCORAN issued on vinyl on Sugarbush some years back but originally issued in Japan in 1996) must have been a huge influence on COTTON MATHER who got most of the hot press for their release. But us in the know understand the roots of KONTIKI. Anyway read on and order, because this will sell out super quick, esp since most copies were reserved some years back.

"The songs themselves and the excellent performances of the musicians playing them make this album magical. The record’s standout song, My Before and After, is an example of the perfect popsong just like Badfinger’s No Matter What and The Who’s I Can’t Explain. Containing hooks galore, My Before and After perfectrly captures the desire, hope, and longing of all-consuming love that music was invented to express just like those other classic songs. Not that My Before and After is the sole reason to check out this album. Indeed, what comes before and …um…after that song is just as musically tasty. The album as a whole has nary a flaw. But that song, well, is one of the songs all songwriters worth their salt wish they wrote." (popgeekheaven review 2012)

Grip Weeds - "Giant On The Beach" out on vinyl for the first time ever - buy it here now. Free postage

GRIP WEEDS - "GIANT ON THE BEACH" (SUGARBUSH SB065), limited to ONLY 300 copies on vinyl this is the first ever vinyl issue of this classic 2004 album, previously only available on CD.

"This New Jersey band plays the kind of jangly, space-age rock perfected by bands like the Zombies, Love, and the Quicksilver Messenger Service. There are elements of the Byrds circa "Eight Miles High" or The Notorious Byrd Brothers, Revolver-era Beatles, and San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury bands. Start with the heavy reliance on lush harmonies, mix in acoustic and electric guitars (complete with backward playing and some Coltrane-esque twisting solos), an insistent rhythm track, and ethereal lyrics, and the listener could easily believe himself lost in a time warp." ( review)

A fabulous album, to be sure, and pressed on 140gm audiophile virgin vinyl, disc housed in lined inner outside the main cover for extra protection. £21.99 only including postage (includes early bird discount), clikc here now to buy:

DOWLING POOLE "Bleak Strategies" buy it here on vinyl, last few copies!

THE DOWLING POOLE "BLEAK STRATEGIES" SB900, limited edition vinyl.
A modern English masterpiece of clever Psychedelic Pop by Willie Dowling (ex JACKDAW4, Honeycrack & Wildhearts) & Jon Poole (ex CARDIACS & WILDHEARTS), a brilliant piece of work that reminds me of the very best of THE KINKS, 10cc, WINGS, THE BEATLES (especially ABBEY ROAD) and even early Supertramp! A - dare I say it again - work of genius, simply a stunningly fantastic record. I was really thrilled to be asked to release this on vinyl on SUGARBUSH RECORDS by the lads. Do not miss this one as it is an essential addition to our catalogue. LAST HANDFUL OF COPIES!
