The Ape Regards His Tail – OST

Band:SULA BASSANA
Album:The Ape Regards His Tail – OST
Label:SULATRON RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:Kraut / Space Rock

Sula Bassana's first soundtrack album! 60 minutes of totally spaced out and minimalistic music for the Sci-Fi featurefilm
"The Ape Regards His Tail" (by film maker Michael Yates).
The music was done on Synthesizers, String-Ensembles, Mellotron, Organ, E-Guitar and E-Piano. It shows the
mellow and relaxed, but also deep, dark and melancholy side of Sula Bassana.
Wide and floating soundscapes combined with deep melodies and spaced out sounds: Close your eyes and watch a
movie inside your head, constructed by those tunes and your mind.
Composed, performed, mixed and produced by Sula/Dave Schmidt (of Electric Moon, Zone Six, Krautzone) in late
2016 and early 2017. Cover artwork by Lulu Artwork! Mastered by Krautrocklegend Eroc (ex Grobschnitt).

Invisibleplan

Band:JIMSONWEED
Album:Invisibleplan
Label:SVART
Format:Vinyl LP
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Along with Kingston Wall earlier in the 1990s and HIM later in the same decade, Jimsonweed were an integral part of
the Helsinki rock scene. Their brand of organic heavy metal was original enough to attract local followers but
too original to make it internationally. The band had a wild stage reputation, yet managed to capture their
psychedelic Indian flavored stoner metal on only one full length album.
This is that album. Released on CD only in 1996, the album’s vinyl debut comes in gatefold covers and either
black or green vinyl, both limited editions. The last LP side has three extra songs, all of which are previously
unreleased....

For this heavy duty reissue of Koivistoinen’s 1977 album we went back to the original multitrack tapes and

most interesting alternate versions of each track and a new, fresh mix was prepared specifically for this release.

second CD contains the alternate takes, including two versions of the studio outtake Meat & Potatoes.

Cosmic Man

Band:Ewigkeit
Album:Cosmic Man
Label:SVART
Format:cd
Genre:Stoner/Doom/Occult/Sludge Metal

Fresh from helping to resurrect In The Woods..., prolific underground metal artist James Fogarty then immediately
began to reconstruct his long running solo effort Ewigkeit and record the new album Cosmic Man, which is set for
international release on July 14th via Svart Records. With a history of creating novelty, James' newest Ewigkeit
release is not without its own enigma.
Lyrically melding the motifs of Terence McKenna and the psychedelic counter‐culture with the music of the various
rocks, metals, and alloys, Cosmic Man takes you from the haze of the early '70s via a NWOBHM detour, followed by a
refuel and oil change at extreme metal. From then on, it's out with the star charts for a left turn at Alpha Centauri
and straight down the inter galactic highway toward the transcendental object at the end of time.

Watch Out Woman

Band:TRAVIS PIKE
Album:Watch Out Woman
Label:STATE RECORDS
Format:7
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

With a career dating back to 1963, Bostonian living legend Travis Pike has had more than 5 decades in the music business, but the casual listener could be forgiven for not being familiar with his name. Releasing only 2 singles under his own name on obscure labels, Travis first found his love of song writing when he composed the title track for “Demo Derby”, a 28-minute featurette produced by his father, James A. Pike, which ran as second feature to “A Hard Day’s Night” in 1964, enjoying much success as a result. Joining the US Navy and stationed in Germany, he then experienced a degree of fame in Hamburg’s legendary Star-Club, billed as “Teddy Pike—Twist And Show Sensation”,before a car accident and resulting shattered ankle brought his twisting days to an abrupt end, and Travis returned to the US in late ‘64.

Fast-forward almost 2 years to early 1966, and while recuperating from his injury and operation, Travis taught himself to play guitar and got busy composing. 10 of his original songs were eventually used in the movie “Feelin’ Good”, including the 2 tracks presented here, featuring Travis himself backed by Oedipus And His Mothers, renamed The Brattle Street East; mixed race group, The Montclairs, who also made a brief appearance in the film, performed two more of Travis’ songs. As inconceivable as it seems today, the inclusion of such a group caused a major issue for the film’s distributors in the Southern states, who declined to book the movie unless the ‘offending’ scene was cut. To his credit, James Pike refused to censor his film; unfortunately, it cost him the level of success he had experienced with “Demo Derby”, and the
film sank with little trace. 

Fast-forward (again) almost 50 years to 2012, and Travis was able to locate three of the film’s original five reels, successfully restoring 6 music sequences, which he subsequently posted to YouTube, so at least some of “Feelin’ Good” can now be seen and appreciated by a wider audience than its original (limited) theatrical release would have allowed. State Records are very pleased to be able to present these 2 fine tracks for the first time on vinyl, officially authorised and sanctioned by Travis himself, as a limited edition seven-inch single in glorious MONO!
