Volcanic Tongue on the Mighty Hand

Edition of 50 copies CD-R on Andrew Paine’s Sonic Oyster imprint with a new blat from Brighton’s Bolide aka Bolide Awkwardstra. Bolide play freak free jazz in the tradition of The Art Ensemble, Le Forte Four and The Mothers Of Invention with a goofy communal style that moves from cosmo-shakedowns through wall-destroying breakout brass.

Bolide - The Mighty Hand

Bolide deliver three slabs of spontaneous accept-and-build with an album that celebrates the notion of 'mind and breath', albeit with a lysergic acid diethylamide chaser and a pint of speckled hen.

Every wrinkle, squank and poot is accepted with the kind of feral energy early 'Mothers' once gorged on before squandering it all on titties and beer with Eddie and that annoying Phlorescent Leech.

STRICTLY limited to 50 copies, 'The Mighty Hand' is available from 27 September. The CDR release costs 5GBP and is available for pre-order now.

POSTAGE & PAYPAL INFORMATION - CDRS - In the UK, please add 50p towards p&p for one disc, £1 for 2 or more. Outside the UK, please add £1 towards p&p for one disc, £2 for 2 or more. Paypal is preferred - the address is sonicoysterrecords (at) yahoo (dot) co (dot) uk.

Chapel of Stars - Free Download

I've recently uploaded a new e.p. to my bandcamp site:

The 'Chapel of Stars' ep was completed over two days at SOR Mansions, Spring 2010.

Fall of Acre
He Was a King

I think my original intention was to record approx. 45 minutes of material and link the pieces with some 'third crusade' conceptual hogwash - hence the title 'Fall of Acre'.

Having recorded five pieces and leaving the material for a week, I took my lack of new ideas or willingness to do battle with the 'axe' as a sign to leave it gathering dust and move on.

Move on I did... recording 'Haunts of Ancient Peace' the following month.

I came back to these 'Crusade' pieces recently and discarded two of them immediately - for they were tosh of the highest order.

However... three slabs of guitar have survived.

I gift to those who are interested in such things, a free download... which welcomes the listener with repeating riffs, looped phrases, scorching guitar melodies over a timeless space drone stasis.

I hope you enjoy it - please let me know what you think
