TWISTIN AROUND WITH

Band:THE NORVINS
Album:TWISTIN AROUND WITH
Label:SOUNDFLAT RECORDS
Format:cd
Genre:Garage Punk

The French Garage‐ Fuzz‐Rockers certainly have an unmistakable sound that is once again featured on their brand‐new album.
The record starts off at full power and moves on to the wild and deep, fuzzy, catchy sound of these five Frenchmen.
It also includes a coverversion of the 60s‐classic “Love” (originally by THE BAD BOYS), “She Was Gone” by the
contemporary NO‐THINGS, who just released their debut album on SOUNDFLAT RECORDS, and the Norvinsinterpretation
of “Here I Am, Here I Always Am” (originally by CAPTAIN BEEFHEART), all with the usual added
Norvins‐touchof course, like we know and love. The coverversions fit in perfectly with the otherwise self‐composed
smashers – the album is fast, intense, versatile and absolutely danceable!
This record, available as CD and LP, is a straight to the point Garagepunk‐album from the first to the last song and
falls right into the tradition of fabulous Norvins‐hit‐records!

BAD RECEPTION

Band:THE SHOOK UPS
Album:BAD RECEPTION
Label:SOUNDFLAT RECORDS
Format:Vinyl LP
Genre:Garage Punk

After THE STAGS, Wigan has a new musical gem to offer now: THE SHOOK‐UPS! play finest amped‐up Garagerock
with a psychedelic influence in the manner of bands like THE MUSIC MACHINE or THE SEEDS. Anyone who’s seen
them play live before will know how amazing and at the same time funny their shows are; a perfect sound paired
with some entertaining, eccentric and infectious dancefloor action! The band is made up of ex‐members of MOCO,
THE STAGS, DOKTOR COMBOVER and The V.C.s and released their debut 7’’ on ROTOSONIC RECORDS in a very
limited edition. Their first LP BAD RECEPTION is now released on SOUNDFLAT RECORDS.

 

 

DO THE TON

Band:THE STAGS
Album:DO THE TON
Label:SOUNDFLAT RECORDS
Format:Vinyl LP
Genre:Garage Punk

"Gimme Some Sex‐FIZZ" is arguably fair the motto of the STAGS from Wigan, Northwest England, the hometown of Northern
Soul, of pies and of Uncle Joe's Minballs. But not only the motto assured us of admitting this squad about their charmaing
singer Miss Topsy STAG to our small SOUNDFLAT RECORDS‐family. This band convinces with their independent interpretation
of different music styles of the 60's era. Whether Sixties Garage, Beat, Mod‐Instros, R&B, R'N'R or Power Pop, you can find all
styles in the shakin'‐groovy sound of the STAGS. The STAGS are driven through the unique groovy sound of the Hammond
organ made by Reginald Steinway. Alone the way this instrument is played will bring every rear to shake, but is additionally
supported by Mr. Murdo Gloves (Bass), Kenny Roquette (Drums), Conway Castle (Gitarre) and Singer Topsy Stag. If you want to
describe the sound of the STAGS figuratively, you would possibly say: BANANA SPLITS meets THE MOHAWKS at Wigan‐Bus‐
Station! The STAGS are probably musically inspired by artists like GEORGIE FAME, LULU, THE SONICS, JIMMY SMITH, SHOCKING
BLUE, YOUNG RASCALS, THE SHADOWS or THE EASYBEATS.
You can find several coversongs like e. g. the Boogaloo‐soul song "HOT DOG" by THE FOUR SHELLS, the R&B Monster‐Track
"CHICKEN NECKS" by DON & JUAN, the Dancfloor‐Smasher "CAN'T STOP THE WANT" von SANDY SARJEANT, or the French Ye‐
Ye classic "MOUSTACHE A PAPA" by ANNA BELL. Apart from the coverversions there are of course ass‐shaking, groovy self
composed songs with Hammond‐sound too like e. g. "TEXAS CAVE SALAMANDER", "TREE FINGER" and "SEX FIZZ". With "DO
THE TON” the STAGS show their predilection for speed and 60's Motocross‐Machines. This subject acted as the template for
the brilliant cover artwork too!
After 2 single releases by ROTOSONIC RECORDS, which are not in stock by now, you can get their first longplayer by
SOUNDFLAT RECORDS! Shake your body, move your ass, it's STAGS time: "60's Beat‐Bash‐Boogaloo, this ist the Stag‐
Ageddon!!"

 

 

Live at Fillmore West 1970

Band:RENAISSANCE
Album:Live at Fillmore West 1970
Label:SIREENA
Format:Vinyl LP
Genre:Prog Rock

In July 1968 the legendary YARDBIRDS had disappeared, and singer / guitarist Keith Relf and
drummer Jim McCarthy found themselves in the short-lived folk duo TOGETHER. This project
formed the core of the Folkrock band RENAISSANCE. In addition, keyboardist John Hawken from
the Nashville Teens, bassist Louis Cennamo (formerly Jody Grind, The Herd) and Relf's sister Jane
Relf, who was responsible for singing and percussion.
Another "Yardbird", Paul Samwell-Smith, produced the debut album of the same name in 1969, and
Germany's leading music magazine SOUNDS discovered "melting beautiful classical passages",
which were associated with wonderful vocal harmonies and epic broad song structures. The same
spirit conjured the album "Illusion" produced by Relf himself the same year.
Despite great reviews and exciting concerts, Relf left the band in 1970, the sales figures of the two
albums were sobering and for the former "Yardbird" probably too poor. Keith Relf and Louis
Cennamo founded ARMAGGEDON, a new harder band project, the rest of the musicians founded
ILLUSION. Both projects were not particularly successful. On 14 May 1976, Keith Relf died of the
consequences of an electric shock.
The recordings of this album were made during the US tour of RENAISSANCE on 6 March 1970 in
the legendary Fillmore West in San Francisco. They are from the private archive of Jim McCarthy and
are therefore a bit rougher than expensive recorded live recordings of record companies. But it's direct
and charming documentaries of a great band from a great time when much was possible!
Limited edition of 1000 copies in 180 gram heavy-weight vinyl!

 

 

The Discovering of Time

Band:CINEMA
Album:The Discovering of Time
Label:SIREENA
Format:cd
Genre:Kraut / Space Rock

CINEMA is the current project of Jürgen "Pöngse" Krutzsch, who already was a well-known
Krautrock legend with his band TIBET in the Seventies. The project name fits, because the
titles of this album run like movies in the mind's eye of the listener.
Pöngse - supported by Brigitte Grafe and guitarist Benjamin Peiser - knows to take this
electronic soundtrack every cold and to create an incredibly groovy and trancy melange,
reminiscent in some moments of Pink Floyd, but also wakes associations with Tangerine
Dream, Vangelis, Mike Oldfield and Schiller. Each title tells you in advance what it is and
what musical elements are used. African, oriental and rock rhythms, with organs, choirs,
guitars - a plenty of synthesizers and sequencers.
For mastering ex-Grobschnitt musician EROC was actually responsible. The result is a
musical journey around the world through the digital sound world of the continents that is
unparalleled!
A fine and entertaining journey at all! The perfect mental cinema!

 

 

Eileen

Band:STREETMARK
Album:Eileen
Label:SIREENA
Format:cd
Genre:Kraut / Space Rock

In 1977, German prog legend STREETMARK recorded the second album "Eileen",
which became a "perfect synthesis of elements of electronic rock, classic, hard rock,
and radio and symphonic sound collages". It was the second collaboration with
Conny Plank, who was behind the mixing console for the final sound. "Eileen" was s
a huge step forward for STREETMARK but, despite the success, singer Wolfgang
Riechmann left the band to play his solo album "Wunderbar" also for Sky Records.

 

 

Koto Funk

Band:THE PERC
Album:Koto Funk
Label:SIREENA
Format:cd
Genre:Psychedelic Rock

In 1995, German independent music legends Tom THE PERC Redecker and Emilio THE
HIDDEN GENTLEMAN Winschetti wrote the music for the production of Peter
Turrini's "Die Schlacht um Wien" (The Battle for Vienna)at the Staatstheater
Stuttgart. Director Günther Gerstner wanted to have the two in the next
project, a theater production of Rainald Goetz's work "Festung" (Fortress) in
Berlin. After the script came, Redecker started working and collected ideas.
He wrote the design of the title "Birth To The Day" alone on the synthesizer,
which was later to be developed in the studio with guest musicians. The five
tracks" Koto Funk "," Flesh & Blood Society "," Inhaler "," Heartbeat "and"
Dwarf "already existed as experimental industrial / punk versions and were
planned as the basis for new recordings , but unfortunately it was not,
because the whole project was canceled and the recordings disappeared in Tom`s
archive.
At the end of 2016, when researching in his archive, Redecker came across the
lost recording of "Birth To The Day" and the memory of the screened theater
project came back. Now it was the idea to publish these together with the five
other original ideas on CD.
In addition, "Head In The Air - Single Edit" and "Cuppa Mocha", which so far were only available on an out of print
vinyl single, were included in the tracklisting.
