Ejwuusl Wessahqqan
Ejwuusl Wessahqqan (1971, Self Released) (Re-released on Garden Of Delights, 1996)

"Sounding like Ray Manzarek, or The Doors in general for that matter, infused with a rough and gruff krautastic trudge, this magnificent record will pound on into the cosmos for days. Not too big on the "bonus tracks" though." - DD

Rahul Dev Burman
Shalimar (OST) (1978, Polydor Records)

"Some remarkably delicious Bollywood moog/sitar funk-psychedelia courtesy of R.D. Burman and his immensely innovative style. Side note; this has possibly the coolest sleeve in history! Dig on my progeny!" - DD

Merzbow - Graft (2010) (LP)


Merzbow
Graft (LP) (2010, Cold Spring Records)

“A lofty burst of cacophonic entrails, spewed across the floor, dripping down the walls, writhing and throbbing with violent lust.” - DD

Bruce Haack - Haackula (1978)


Bruce Haack
Haackula (1978, Unreleased) (Later released in 2008 by The Omni Recording Corporation)

“A dark and brooding affair, Haackula is the apex of outsider electronica. Dig it long and hard brothers and sisters, for it is a genuine masterpiece. A bastion of experiment and personal exploration.” - DD

Greg Ashley - Painted Garden (2007)


Greg Ashley
Painted Garden (2007, Birdman Records)

“More golden nuggets of psychedelic sunshine, courtesy of the king. Painted Garden is an elegant record, with such meticulous care taken on each song. It’s aggravating to know that these wonderful sounds are so foolishly overlooked by the majority. Greg Ashley is the working mans Phil Spector.” - DD

Ruth White - 7 Trumps From The Tarot Cards (1968)


Ruth White

7 Trumps From The Tarot Cards (1968, Limelight)

“If Bruce Haack were a 1931 horror movie about a mad scientist and his loveable little monster, I think this would be the 1935 sequel entitled Bride of Bruce Haack, and it would be much more disturbed. Enjoy!” - DD

C.C.C.C. & Nocturnal Emissions - The Beauty Of Pollution (1996)


C.C.C.C. & Nocturnal Emissions

The Beauty Of Pollution (1996, Endorphine Factory)

“Some supremely fuzzed out harshness 脿 la Debbie Does Dallas! Listen as two of the masters beat the living shit out of each other in an apocolyptic battle for absolute control over the galaxies!” - DD

Poly Styrene
Translucence (1981, Receiver Records Limited)

“This such is a beautiful album, so far beyond anything X-Ray Spex ever dreamed of doing. It’s very calm and flowing and for that I adore it. Dig it while in bed, or laying on the beach!” - DD

The New Creation - Troubled (1970)


The New Creation
Troubled (1970, Companion)

“Though rather bemusing in its message, Troubled sounds a lot like The Vaselines crossed with Mayo Thompson, all chugging along under a glowing veil of Christian propaganda. How can you not love that?!” - DD

Jackpine Savage - Together (1971)


Jackpine Savage (AKA Bruce Haack )
Together (1971, Dimension 5)

"A seemingly more personal outing than some of his "psychedelic-education" records for kids, and not as menacing as Haackula (which I'll be posting soon enough kiddies!), Together is still every bit as anomalous as anything Haack! Dig this electronic belle in all its splendor!" - DD

Charlie Mcalister - I'll See You In Hell (2001)


Charlie Mcalister
I'll See You In Hell (2001, Tape Mountain)

"This is pure, primal, scattered and hissy. It's banjo-bangin', tape-collagin, genuine-article genius! If you can see him live, go! If you see any of his (more than 70) releases, buy 'em! Meanwhile, dig this swamptastic bop'n sludge and enthusiastically go forth into the murky waters! Heeeere's Charlie!" - DD

Nocturnal Emissions
Cathedral (1991, Musica Maxima Magnetica)

"Not unlike some euphoric transmigration, a voyage through space and time. Nocturnal Emissions are one of those "bands" you never know what to expect from, and this time out it's pure tranquility" - DD

Merzbow
Tamago (2004, Plan-DX17)

"More gallantly shrill goodies from the Jesus-mange itself. Way up there with Merzzow, this is among my favourites of Akita's work. A sonic powerhouse, commisioned by Plan-DX17 to be a 'psychedelic noise experience'. Success!" - DD

Alomoni 1985 (1974, Voice Records)

"Influenced by the German krautrock scene, this is some holy Japanese psychedelia drawing similarities to such heavyweights as Can and Faust. Kick out the fudge, motha fuckus!" - DD

Lemon Kittens
Spoonfed + Writhing (7") (1979, Sanctuary Records)

"With similarities (vocally) to The Frogs and Mark E. Smith, and monstrous sonic outbursts similar to This Heat, Lemon Kittens still manage to sound unlike anything else, and truly showcase that here. I'd forgotten about them until someone recently commented on a previous post. Enjoy this, it's fucking rad!" -DD

There are two tracks called Redemption And Prayer on this rip because it's suppose to be one track but I couldn't find an mp3 joiner.

Charles Manson
The Son Of Man (LP) (1994, N/A)

"This is my personal favourite of the many Manson recordings, though most who I've shown aren't as fond. It's essentially a meandering trudge of spur of the moment mumblings, and entirely delicious. Dig in!" - DD

White Williams
Smoke (2007, Tigerbeat6)

"I was reminded of this recently while on a road trip to Boston and figured I'd share it. I often describe it to people as a contemporary Brian Eno, and though not nearly as evocative I think that holds up. Electro-pop-rock with a dash of punk." - DD

4 Butterflies (LP) (1974, Columbia)

"Recorded with an Electric Music Box this goes from almost indistinguishable blips and drones to menacing intergalactic warbots coaxed by a fluttering rhythm. Very hypnotic but very interesting as well." - Modo
