winebox18 - 'Solo Guitar Volume II' 3 x C21 - SOLD OUT!

Second volume of six sides of loosely defined solo guitar recordings (following the first one from 2009), this one featuring Fliss Horrocks, Bridget Hayden, Core of the Coalman, Plum Slate, Harappian Night Recordings and Irma Vep. Styles run from heavy sliding blues through phased cyclical picking to late night raga and scattered otherworldly tweaking.

Boxed edition of 74 copies started out as a door, a good one too. The cassettes contained within come wrapped in fabric to prevent them shunting out the ends of the box in transit; feel free to discard this on arrival. The cost is £15 plus postage. Too late for your end of year list but just in time for your Christmas list. Photographs here.

Whole Voyald Infinite Light 'Circumambulations Pts I & II' 7"

First vinyl release on Winebox Press is two slow psychedelic guitar-on-guitar workouts from late 2010/early 2011, a primer for an LP forthcoming sometime later this year. Numbered edition of 300 copies. Cost is £4 plus postage. The bad news is that UK postage rates just went up pretty wildly, especially the rate for sending packages abroad. Feel free to reserve copies of releases and I'll ship them together to save on this. For the 7" above, postage will be £1.50/£3.50/£4.50 to the UK/Europe/World respectively.

winebox16 - Vampire Blues 'Sub-Terra Marching Band' C45 - SOLD OUT!

Recorded half live and half in the cellar between early spring and late summer of 2011, the usual Vampire Blues duo are here augmented by the skittering percussions of Ross Parfitt and the acoustic environments of Scrim headquarters in Edinburgh and the Boathouse in Kingston upon Hull. Side One (with RP) is a dissonant twenty-minute all-acoustic piece for harmonium, steel & nylon strings, cymbals, trinkets and tape hiss; the second consists of two classically swelling electrified duo performance excerpts.

Edition of 45 copies comes from a skip find of nine drawer fronts, de-lacquered and split into fives. Cost is £8/£9/£10 to the UK/Europe/World.
