91 - NIBLOCK, PHILL - NOTHIN TO LOOK AT JUST A RECORD - (LP) 
SUPERIOR VIADUCT


Phill Niblock has pushed the boundaries of sound and visual art for over 40 years. While dutifully producing experimental films and curating multi-media loft performances in New Yorks 1960s avant-garde circles, Niblock developed a composition technique informed by American minimalists such as Tony Conrad and La Monte Young. His music consists of long instrumental tones, closely pitched together to create beat patterns and multi-tracked into dense layers. Nothin to Look At Just a Record, originally released on esteemed 20th century / jazz label India Navigation in 1982, is Niblocks recording debut and often cited as his masterpiece. "A Trombone Piece," the first of two side-long tracks, was recorded by Richard Lainhart and Richard Kelly (both music innovators in their own right) at SUNY Albany in the mid-70s. Breathing pauses from instrumentalist James Fulkersons trombone were spliced out to unravel the drones spatially, rather than according to metered rhythm. The overall effect is mesmerizing and beautifully envelops the listener with each tonal subtlety. To celebrate Niblocks 80th birthday, Superior Viaduct is honored to present the first-time vinyl reissue of Nothin to Look At Just a Record, a high-water mark in 20th century music and listed as #5 on Alan Lichts Minimal Top Ten..

92 - PIN GROUP, THE - GO TO TOWN - (12") 
SUPERIOR VIADUCT


New Zealand's Pin Group emerged out of the early '80s Christchurch scene and, with just two stunning singles and one brilliant five-song EP, have become an archetype for nearly all indie bands ever since.Ambivalence was not only The Pin Group's hypnotic debut, but also the very first release on Flying Nun. While guitarist Roy Montgomery, bassist Ross Humphries and drummer Peter Stapleton build off each other's jittery riffs, Montgomery's uncanny baritone pierces the torrential clangor. Conjuring both Wire's Chairs Missing and VU's White Light/White Heat, the band captures a truly unique sound - evocative, yet austere. Wasting little time, The Pin Group released Coat in November 1981, merely two months after their first single. On the title track, Humphries' distant vocals call out as tense rhythms gradually push listeners over the edge. B-side track "Jim" could easily have been recorded in Manchester circa 1979, but remains a master class in NZ post-punk atmospherics, menacing from start to finish. The Pin Group went back into the studio in January 1982 to record their third and final classic release. Featuring an expanded five-piece lineup with Mary Heney on guitar/vocals and Peter Fryer on viola, Go To Town is a work of taut perfection. Showcasing the band's dramatic chiaroscuro textures and arresting lyrics, "Long Night" and "When I Tell You" make staggeringly clear how much sonic ground The Pin Group covered in their unfortunately short tenure. These first-time standalone reissues, featuring Ronnie van Hout's original sleeve designs, are pressed on limited edition color vinyl. The 12" includes liner notes by Liz Harris. Now is the time to discover again the monochrome magnetism of this unparalleled and legendary band. First-time reissue of classic releases from legendary New Zealand band

93 - PINK SECTION - PINK SECTION - (LP) 
SUPERIOR VIADUCT


Named after San Francisco Chronicles pink-hued arts and entertainment guide, Pink Section coalesced at SF Art Institute and performed their first show at the legendary Deaf Club on Valentines Day, 1979. These self-taught musicians existed on the fringe (even in the local underground scene), producing an unusual brand of off-kilter post-punk against a backdrop of Dadaist aesthetics. The group itself was strangely symmetrical: singer Judy Gittelsohn and drummer Carol Detweiler (both members of Inflatable Boy Clams), singer / guitarist Matt Heckert (Survival Research Laboratories) and bassist Stephen Wymore. While the hallucinatory layers of male / female vocals on "Shopping" conjure images of deranged domesticity and 50s Americana gone haywire, the fractured riffs of "Midsummer New York" deconstruct Yoko Onos original even further, stripping bare Pink Sections fondness for angular rhythms and out-of-control oscillations. This first-time retrospective LP collects the bands rare 1979 single, the self-titled EP, unreleased demos and live material. Recommended for fans of Suburban Lawns, Units, and DEVO..

94 - PROUD, PIP - A BIRD IN THE ENGINE - (LP) 
SUPERIOR VIADUCT


In the late 60s, Pip Proud recorded two of the oddest records ever to come out of Australia-Adreneline & Richard and A Bird in the Engine-before vanishing into obscurity for the better part of three decades. Often called the "Australian Syd Barrett," Proud actually released his second album in 1969, a year prior to The Madcap Laughs, and developed his indigenous psychedelia in virtual isolation. A Bird in the Engine is even more rare than his debut. From the extraordinary "Eagle-Wise" to the remarkable title track (which includes the uncredited performance of a friend hitting a cardboard box with a microphone), Prouds unrestrained genius is laid bare, a delicate tension of simple melodies and maddening form. While other compilations of Prouds music have been released in recent years, this is the first time A Bird in the Engine has been reissued in its original format. Recommended for fans of Alvarius B., Donovan and Jandek..

95 - PROUD, PIP - ADRENELINE & RICHARD - (LP) 
SUPERIOR VIADUCT


In the late 60s, Pip Proud recorded two of the oddest records ever to come out of Australia-Adreneline & Richard and A Bird in the Engine-before vanishing into obscurity for the better part of three decades. Often called the "Australian Syd Barrett," Proud actually released his second album in 1969, a year prior to The Madcap Laughs, and developed his indigenous psychedelia in virtual isolation. To quote Byron Coley, who like a handful of underground luminaries discovered Proud in the 80s via collector mail-order lists, Adreneline & Richard features "weirdly strummed barre-chord guitar, monotone vocals that occasionally [try] to pass way beyond their known range, oddball lyrics that [combine] nursery rhymes with druggy imagery. It [is] a hell of a cool record." While other compilations of Prouds music have been released in recent years, this is the first time that Adreneline & Richard has been reissued in its original format (including inner sleeve with lyrics). Recommended for fans of outsider and lo-fi pop from the US, UK, New Zealand and beyond..

96 - REV, MARTIN - REV, MARTIN - (LP)    UPDATED
SUPERIOR VIADUCT


In 1980, shortly after Suicides second full-length, Martin Rev released his first solo album on preeminent No Wave label Infidelity (Lust/Unlust). Uninhibited by the trappings of a collaborator, Rev was freed to explore his most experimental and pop leanings with dirty synths, dark melodies and dreamlike textures, and produced a masterpiece of modern alienation that captures a uniquely New York landscape. Echoing other electronic forerunners such as Silver Apples and Kraftwerk, and foreshadowing the work of Aphex Twin and Air, Revs solo outing rests firmly in the lineage of unnerving sounds from the furthest fringe of maladjustment..

97 - SCIENTIST - INTRODUCING SCIENTIST - THE BEST DUB ALBUM IN THE - (LP) 
SUPERIOR VIADUCT


Hopeton Brown, better known as Scientist, has been a pioneering figure in the world of dub for nearly 40 years. His early love of electronics proved fruitful when (still a teenager) he was hired at King Tubbys studio in Kingston. Brown quickly ascended the ranks and became heir to Tubbys throne, producing imaginative and technically impressive mixes that solidified his forward-looking nickname. Introducing Scientist - The Best Dub Album in the World, his 1980 debut LP, lives up to its boastful title. Recorded with Sly & Robbie at Channel One Studio and mixed at King Tubbys, the album features hypnotic basslines, reverb-drenched keyboards, and fluid, start-stop rhythms. Opening track "Steppers," with its well-balanced phrasing and organic contours, shows Scientists mastery of the studio-as-instrument concept. On "Scientific," the effects-laden guitars are stretched to their outer limit to create magnificent, spaced-out textures and muted tension. Introducing Scientist displays the talents of a man obsessed with every element of production, drawing out the very best of the dub form..

99 - SENSATIONS' FIX - FRAGMENTS OF LIGHT - (LP) 
SUPERIOR VIADUCT


Sensations Fix guitarist, keyboardist and occasional vocalist Franco Falsini cut his teeth with Italian groups in the 60s before assimilating the heady guitar virtuosity of English rock. In 1969, he moved to Virginia and built a recording studio in his girlfriends basement, employing little more than his guitar, the newly available Minimoog synthesizer and a 4-track machine. These raw tracks, intended to be simple demos, formed the base of Fragments of Light, the debut album by Sensations Fix. Originally released on Polydor in 1974, Fragments of Light does not bend to mid-70s genre-classism. Fluid, meditative guitar leads and innovative use of synthesizers, combined with a noted lack of percussion (and vocals) on all but a few songs, have drawn comparisons to Kosmische legends Tangerine Dream and Popol Vuh. "Space Closure," the only track with live drums, resembles the kinetic progressive rock of fellow Italian Franco Battiato, while the shimmering bliss of "Do You Love Me?" rivals the American power pop that Falsini surely absorbed during his time in the States. A certain airy, homespun feel lends Fragments of Light its unique character. While other Sensations Fix records may sound more cohesive and polished, Fragments of Light remains the most personal. The album is sadly not well known outside of Italy, but Superior Viaduct hopes to rectify that situation with this first-time vinyl reissue..

TRACKLISTING: 01. Fragments Of Light 02. Nuclear War In Your Brain 03. Music Is Painting In The Air 04. Windopax And The Stone Sender 05. Space Energy Age 6 06. Metafel + Mafalac 07. Space Closure 08. Music Without Gravity 09. Do You Love Me? 10. Life Beyond The Darkness 11. Telepathic Children

100 - SLEEPERS, THE - THE SLEEPERS - (7") 
SUPERIOR VIADUCT


The Sleepers debut five-song EP, originally released in 1978, is one of the truly essential records to come out of California in the late 70s. It is 100% punk in spirit and yet avoids every punk clich. The bands original lineup of Ricky Williams, Michael Belfer, Paul Draper and Tim Mooney operates here as a machine-a temperamental one rattling in unison. Opener "Seventh World" trudges through many tempos without repeating a single one, while Williamss astonishing, Robo-fueled voice douses the microphone with esoteric imagery. Each track creates a new template for psychedelic rock and discards it by the time the next one begins. This record inexplicably transcends the mere sum of its parts..

102 - SUICIDE - ALAN VEGA MARTIN REV - (LP) 
SUPERIOR VIADUCT


After crystallizing a reputation for confrontational live performances and releasing their essential debut LP, Suicide went into the studio to record their stunning follow-up. Producer Ric Ocasek lends a pop sensibility to the band's sound, constructing an atmosphere at once light and catchy, yet still crazed and venomous.Originally released in 1980 on ZE Records, Alan Vega Martin Rev features an array of glistening keyboards and early preset rhythm machine sounds whose harsh simplicity suggests the discreet zones and confined movements of urban life. While his vocal treatments are more refined than before, Alan Vega is still cool as ice, visceral and evocative.Superior Viaduct is honored to present Suicide's under-appreciated second album. For the first time since its initial release 35+ years ago, this vinyl release includes the original track list and artwork. If there can be a quintessential New York band, it is without a doubt Suicide.

103 - SUICIDE - FIRST REHEARSAL TAPES - (LP) 
SUPERIOR VIADUCT


"On Suicides First Rehearsal Tapes, recorded in 1975, Alan Vega and Martin Rev create minimalist aural structures, traces of which would surface on their eponymous debut album, released on the Red Star label in late 1977. "These songs are not a sketchpad of semi-formed ideas. The First Rehearsal Tapes comprise an audio diary of two men out in the ether, measuring themselves as evolving individual artists and as a unit who would rely on inseparability to realize their unique and often confrontational mass in the decades to come. What the tapes also reveal is that Vega and Rev were compositionally ambitious, capable of melody and form, while resisting definition as they headed further into uncharted territory. "The First Rehearsal Tapes afford the listener a glimpse into the creative process of two groundbreaking, true art warriors with their swords and shields leaning against the practice room wall. To understand the absolute brilliance of Suicides first album as well as their sonic adventures that followed, you have to start here with their earliest recordings."-Henry Rollins (excerpt from the liner notes)

104 - SUICIDE - SUICIDE - (LP) 
SUPERIOR VIADUCT


Suicide's landmark self-titled LP was originally released in 1977, seven years after the group's initial conception as part of the performance art scene on the Lower East Side. It is hard to overstate the importance of the seven tracks on Suicide, which paved the way for punk, industrial, hip hop, noise and beyond."Ghost Rider" accelerates with brutal anguish and desire for everything rock 'n' roll. Martin Rev's utterly singular "instrument" pounds out a synthetic soundscape, while Alan Vega's oversaturated vocals obsess over motorcycle getaways. "Rocket U.S.A." distills the duo's dynamic power down to a ghostly pulse, while the psycho-drama of "Frankie Teardrop" (Bruce Springsteen's all-time favorite song) delves even further into cinematic storytelling and, at the same time, clears the room at the end of the night.Superior Viaduct is honored to present Suicide - restored from the original mixes, fully sanctioned by the band and with liner notes by Thurston Moore. If there can be a quintessential New York band, it is without a doubt Suicide.

105 - SUN RA AND HIS ARKESTRA - FEATURING PHARAOH SANDERS AND BLACK HAROLD - (LP) 
SUPERIOR VIADUCT


"To understand the significance of the word featuring on Featuring Pharoah Sanders And Black Harold, consider how infrequently Sun Ra used it and the exact way it had been used. "The October Revolution in Jazz, organized by Bill Dixon in the West Village in 1964, presented a vivid cross section of approaches to the new music, including a sextet led by Ra. For the October Revolutions continuation, titled Four Days in December, held at nearby Judson Hall on the last days of 1964, the Arkestra performance presented Pharoah Sanders as well as a flautist (who was and remained obscure thereafter) named Harold Murray, nicknamed Black Harold. "It wasnt until long after Sanders had achieved worldwide acclaim with John Coltrane that Ra and manager Alton Abraham decided to issue the music theyd recorded at Judson Hall. After its first release in plain or handdecorated covers in 1976, Featuring Pharoah Sanders And Black Harold remained an exceptionally rare item in the El Saturn discography, known to a few lucky collectors. "Were lucky to have this glimpse of what Sanders sounded like in such a different context, galvanizing the large group and in turn being inspired to make his first significant contribution on record." - John Corbett (excerpt from the liner notes)

106 - THIS KIND OF PUNISHMENT - A BEARD OF BEES - (LP) 
SUPERIOR VIADUCT


Among This Kind Of Punishment's myriad recordings, A Beard Of Bees best outlines the collective vision of the Jefferies brothers. Their classic second album feels more meticulous than its predecessor, proffering a grey, near-Mancunian influence that serves as both touchstone and springboard for the proceedings. The unique maneuvering on "Trepidation" is a marvel: guitar sweetness shifting toward melancholic piano and ending with their combined shimmer. Conversely, the augmented VU-inspired noise of "East Meets West" positions itself as the album's prime moment of severity - creepily building toward horror-show screams that inch to a buried, found-sound resolution.Originally self-released in 1984, A Beard Of Bees has been out of print for almost 25 years.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Prelude 02. From The Diary Of Hermann Doubt 03. The Horrible Tango 04. Trepidation 05. East Meets West 06. Turning To Stone 07. Although They Appear 08. The Sleepwalker 09. An Open Denial

107 - THIS KIND OF PUNISHMENT - IN THE SAME ROOM - (LP) 
SUPERIOR VIADUCT


With This Kind Of Punishment, Graeme Jefferies and Peter Jefferies produced some of most adept DIY sounds to emerge from New Zealands 1980s post-punk scene. After their phenomenal self-titled debut and classic A Beard Of Bees, the brothers would make one last album together, In The Same Room. Originally released in 1987 on Flying Nun, In The Same Room is perhaps the straightest rock offering in TKPs esteemed catalogue. Opening track "Immigration Song" expertly pairs jagged guitars with wrathful vocals-resulting in one of the most celebrated moments in their recording career-while "Dont Go" puts the full breadth of the Jefferies brothers method on display: spiraling riffs, somber baritone and chamber-like calm give way to frenzied rhythms and antagonistic lyrics. From deeply insular songwriting to hands-on production, This Kind Of Punishment draw the listener in close-nearly within the same room as the players-and remain rooted in a distinct approach to presentation that is inseparable from their music.

108 - THIS KIND OF PUNISHMENT - THIS KIND OF PUNISHMENT - (LP) 
SUPERIOR VIADUCT


In the fertile terrain of New Zealand's 1980s post-punk scene, few figures loom as large as the Jefferies brothers. Graeme Jefferies and Peter Jefferies - the primary forces behind This Kind of Punishment - wrote some of the best music to come out on Flying Nun, Xpressway or elsewhere. A dizzying mix of pastoral ballads and DIY experimentation, TKP's songwriting was at once classic and acutely raw.On their self-titled debut, the Jefferies brothers and Chris Matthews eschew the punk-informed modes of their contemporaries for a sound that is decidedly more deliberate / intimate. Rooted in a marriage between simplistic, classically-influenced piano, alternating guitar chime and sparse, subtle violin drone, This Kind Of Punishment is a contemplative, inventive collection of ideas corralled via economic 4-track recordings, minimal instrumentation and an austere performance style entirely of the Jefferies' own making. Songs like "After The Fact," "In View Of The Circumstances" and "Two Minutes Drowning" boast a living quality whereby the listener can act as bystander to these moments of creation - a trait that the band would expand upon throughout the course of their brief tenure. First-time vinyl reissue since its initial release in 1983.

109 - TUXEDOMOON - SCREAM WITH A VIEW - (12") 
SUPERIOR VIADUCT


Founded by Steven Brown and Blaine Reininger in San Francisco, Tuxedomoon are a futuristic alternate reality of delirium and existential dread. Aligned with fellow Bay Area experimentalists The Residents (to whose Ralph Records the group eventually signed) and Robin Crutchfields post-DNA project Dark Day, Tuxedomoon developed a unique combination of synthesizer and guitar that placed them at the forefront of the US post-punk movement in the late 70s and early 80s. Scream With a View, recorded surreptitiously in The Residents private studio in 1979, advances brilliant melodic concepts through analog technology for a sound barely comprehensible today. On "Where Interests Lie," punchy drum machine underlies barbed and eerie leads from guitarist Michael Belfer (The Sleepers). "(Special Treatment for the) Family Man"-a reference to Dan Whites trial for the assassination of San Franciscos mayor George Moscone and supervisor Harvey Milk in 1978-is an indignant vigil cut with a rare brand of macabre humor. Saxophone, Polymoog, violin, e-bowed guitar, and CB radio interference make Scream With a View the insidious foil to the urgent No Tears EP..
