Pere Ubu - Dub Housing
(Chrysalis CHR-1207 UK-76 EX 275:-)

Pere Ubu emerged from the urban wastelands of mid-'70s Cleveland to impact the American underground for generations to come; led by hulking frontman David Thomas, whose absurdist warble and rapturously demented lyrics remained the band's creative focus throughout their long, convoluted career, Ubu's protean art punk sound harnessed self-destructing melodies, scattershot rhythms, and industrial-strength dissonance to capture the angst and chaos of their times with both apocalyptic fervor and surprising humanity.

THE MODERN DANCE was Pere Ubu's debut and 1978's great leap forward in the wake of punk and its lesser descendents. As such, DUB HOUSING, 10 months its junior, was always going to have a hard act to follow. At heart an avant-garde troupe with an overbearing sense of alienation about them, Ubu resisted the hooks that earned THE MODERN DANCE so many of its plaudits. DUB HOUSING rode along on Tony Maimone's fluid bass work on "I Will Wait" and "Navvy," periodically breaking down into ordered chaos. You can almost hear the fragile building bricks tumble on "Thriller!"

Original UK pressing; both sleeve and vinyl are graded EX.
Perigeo - Genealogia
(RCA Italiana ‎TPL1-1080 Ita-74 VG+ 500:-)

Perigeo were founded in Rome in 1971: five professional musicians, all of them already largely active in the jazz and rock circuits of those years, who gathered in the studio to wisely blend together the two aforementioned music genres: this is probably the first example of jazz-rock music in Italy.

“Genealogia”, the group’s third LP, is widely regarded as their absolute pinnacle: the perfect balance between harmony and dissonance, catchiness and complexity of the musical phrasing. Jazz-rock is just a convenient label, because this really is music without boundaries, and Perigeo undoubtedly were among its best exponents.
Pink Floyd - Wish You were Here
(Harvest 1C-062-96.918 Ger-75 VG+ 300:-)

A seminal set from 70s Pink Floyd – a set that took all the energy of "Dark Side of the Moon", and refined it into an even more complex sonic setting! The whole thing's wonderful – always taken better as a whole than in just small slices.

3rd German pressing. The black shrikwrap is missing but the postcard is still there!
Pop, Iggy - Nightclubbing
(Swingin' Pig TSP-067-2 Lux-90 VG+ 500:-)

James Newell Osterberg, known professionally as Iggy Pop, was the vocalist and lyricist of proto-punk band The Stooges. He had a long collaborative and personal friendship with David Bowie over the course of his career, beginning when both musicians relocated to West Berlin to wean themselves off their respective drug addictions and Pop began his solo career by collaborating with Bowie on the 1977 albums "The Idiot" and "Lust for Life". Throughout his career, he is well known for his outrageous and unpredictable stage antics, poetic lyrics, and distinctive voice.

Popol Vuh ‎– Agape-Agape Love-Love
(Uniton U-015 Nor-83 VG+ 300:-)

Popol Vuh as an experimental German band whose cosmic, trance-like music was a huge influence on modern ambience and worldbeat.

Two years after the issue of "Sei Still, Wisse ICH BIN", "Agape-Agape (Love-Love)" offers a deeper view of the same animal. Still utilizing a choir for Gregorian chant-like ethereal intensity - though they sing in Byzantine scales - pianist Florian Fricke, guitarist/percussionist Daniel Fichelscher, guitarist Conny Veit, and vocalist Renate Knaup delve deeply into the drone world of Fricke's sacred music muse.

(RCA Victor MOVLP2376 EU-19 EX 275:-)

Presley, Elvis - Good Times
(RCA Victor MOVLP2375 EU-19 EX 275:-)
