Fred Frith – Come Across

The spirit of Henry Cow lives on with this track from former-Cow man Frith’s 1980 album on Ralph Records, ‘Gravity’.

The Future Sound Of London – The Far-Out Son Of Lung And The Ramblings Of A Madman

The Future Sound Of London constructing a Sampledelic piece of Astral Jazz with a hefty dose of gnarly funk. If only Trip-Hop sounded like this. This is from their excellent 1995 EP of the same name. You may recognise the drum sample of Rotary Connection’s ‘Life Could’.

Devo – Smart Patrol/Mr DNA (Live)

Live footage from the bands 1978 tour that ended up in their 1979 (released in 1981) short film ‘Devo: The Men Who Made The Music’. Great rendition of the ‘Duty Now For The Future’ track.

Loose, free, spacious, and joyous. This is from Cherry’s 1972 album ‘Organic Music Society’.

Black To Comm – Stolen Androgens

New track from Marc Richter’s forthcoming album ‘Oocyte Oil & Stolen Androgens’. This is a soothing, meditative piece; hinting at a calmer, spacier approach compared to the two disturbed albums he released in 2019.

John Fahey – Wine and Roses (Live 1969)

Haunting Americana from the one and only Fahey.

You’ve Got Foetus on Your Breath – New York or Bust!

The opening track from Thirlwell’s debut album is like a No Wave Adam Ant.

The Contortions – Dish It Out

Gnarly, ragged Punk Funk from the infamous 1978 No Wave compilation ‘No New York’.

James Brown – Licking Stick, Licking Stick

Swaggering Funk single from the Godfather. 1968.
