DJ Female Convict Scorpion is the nom de guerre of bay area polymath Josh Pollock, In addition to his public collaborations with Gong, Acid Mothers Temple, John Cale, 3 Leafs and others he can also be found on stage, screen and voicing some of you favorite cat litter commercials.
Highly recommended wild LP! Don't bother looking for volumes 1 or 2, they don't exist!
"Crazed garage basement goof with low-rent humor, idiosyncratic vocals, and primitivist songwriting rivaling the Shaggs. Prior to his solo career, Arvedon was with New England Teen Scene legends the Psychopaths" - Acid Archives
Selection is psyched to bring you this modern classic of L.A. punk on a modern cassette!
Already gone, but never to be forgotten. Man's Ass (as they preferred to be called) tore up stages, money and relationships across southern California for years before they died and went to heaven.
The members collective pedigree includes time in acts like Residual Echoes, The Mae Shi, Of Aire, Devon Williams and Thelonius fucking Monster.
For fans of the Flesh Eaters, Fear, Royal Trux, Drinking, Ditchweed and Taco Zone.
“Man’s Assassination, Man is a rock group from Los Angeles, CA that set out to free themselves from all rock illusion and cliche and they failed completely.
Man’s Ass, as their friends and fans lazily refer to them, formed out of the pleasure of writing and performing music that they actually enjoyed, which is a rare thing for people to do in Los Angeles. Sure, the riffs are rocking and the grooves are bopping, but there is something inherently sinister in the execution that can’t help but reflect the embarrassing nihilism and childishly bad attitudes of the band members. It could be described as some kind of bummer boogie rock, like Van Halen on bathtub drugs. The music is an involuntary reaction to the conformist nightmare of success and douchery that dominates LA life across the board. Taking inspiration from weirdo hippie SST punk, the metallic negativity of Fear and Flipper, the anguished poetry and vision of Chris D and the Flesh Eaters, the rawk experimentalism of Hagerty and Herrema, and the pure freedom and joy of classic boner rock, the band would became more known for being drunk and talking too much between songs.
They played their first show together in 2008 at the now defunct Echo Curio and have since gone on to perform before numerous hostile audiences, opening for the likes of Jad Fair, The Urinals, Abe Vigoda, Plastic Crimewave, and Andrew WK. The band members themselves have been rocking for many years in many other groups and collaborations, such as Residual Echoes, The Mae Shi, Of Aire, Devon Williams, even Thelonius Monster.
Paloma Parfrey of The Sharp Ease and Precious Medals gifted the band with her vocal presence on the album, which was recorded in two days at Mix LA by the talented Andrew Schubert, who is also the proprietor of Ghostbot Records. The Big One is their first and only album. The title is a reference to many things, from the earthquake in Robert Altman’s “Short Cuts,” Redd Fox, Aerosmith and genitals in general.” - Ghostbot
Rainy day dream music, simple and beautiful. Tokyo's Yuka Ijichi stuns us all with this debut.
Acoustic freakouts saddled up next to quiet drones accented with heavy psych leads.
All vocals by Yuka Ijichi, Guitars by Hiiragi Fukuda and Kiyohiro Takada (Les Rallizes Denudes)
Originally issued in Belgium on the brilliant Sloow Tapes label in 2010 in an edition of 90 copies.
Snapped up instantly upon original release by those in the know (all 90 of them), Selection is proud to offer this (once again) limited revisitation of this masterpiece.
We're thrilled to bring this jewel to all lovers in the USA.
A song was dropped, but a new one added! Thus this is truly a revisitation and not a straight reissue.
150 copies on royal blue shells for a new world.
Wow, classic post-CLEAN (don't worry, they got back together) outing from David and Hamish Kilgour in 1983.
Tons of puns and bedroom vibes here. Totally the equal of ANY Clean record out there, and ESSENTIAL.
"After THE CLEAN broke up the first time, DAVID and HAMISH KILGOUR acquired a 4 track and recorded their bedroom psych-pop masterpiece, Clean Out Of Our Minds. Recorded in the spring of 1983, it was originally released on Flying Nun. Slightly more experimental (and relaxed) than The Clean, they utilize lots of acoustic instruments and tap into a kind of Syd Barrett vibe. From the glorious pop of 'Hold Onto The Rail' to the restrained psychedelia of 'Toadstool Blues.' Exiled Records is proud to issue this on vinyl for the first time since 1983. Heavy duty Stoughton 'tip on' sleeve with original artwork." - Exiled
Residual Echoes have been spending the last few years at home,
woodshedding and getting way out in the inner mind.
Selection is damn proud to have the fruits of this fertile period to see the light.
6 tracks (56 mins!) of sun drenched, fuzzed out guitar mauraudings
that venture between paranoid and aggro to peaceful and even sweet.
Primitive beats keep up most of the time.
Recorded at home in early 2012 this is the first full length Residual
Echoes release in two years.
Selection will also be releasing a new solo LP from Adam Payne (that's
MR. Residual Echoes to you!) Early 2013.
ESSENTIAL cassette reissue of the (almost) complete recordings from the Summer Hits! Long awaited by the faithful, here is all the stuff from the '96 CD Beaches And Canyons 1992-1996. Fuzzed out California sun jams for fans of sun, surf, speed and just hanging out.
Only available on Cassette and fully reccommended by the Selection staff!!!!
Selection is excited to offer the latest from the great Hiiragi Fukuda.
Known for his blazing guitar work both solo and on Kiyohiro Takada's
(Les Rasilles Denudes) fantastic Doronco Gumo LP.
Here Hiiragi mines (spikes?) a different vein, guitar has taken a
backseat to organ and it's so fuzzy it'll dry out your mouth.
Written in loving tribute to the late Jim Marshall, channeled via
Suicide and smoke filled rooms.
Flip is a sunny mellow cha cha cha (duh) so relaxing i'm suggesting
you get a prescription.
Follows up releases on Sloow Tapes and (Hiiragi's own amazing) Fuyusoubi Music.
Also, Selection will be re-releasing Hiiragi's 2nd full length "My
Turntable Is Slow" on LP in Fall 2012.
Previously only available as a cassette edition of 90 in Belgium!
Thank you Mighty Mouth for bringing this to light! The real deal for sure!
"...a collection of raggedy tonk-tales (the first of no doubt many archival recordings) from that lost living legend, Kentuckys Charlie Tweddle. Its the first time these later full-band recordings have been released on vinyl." - Mighty Mouth Music
