Carillon and percussion recordings, together and solo, from 2010.

Focussing compellingly on his eavesdropping of telephone conversations, with some Mo Wax commissions out here for the first time, a couple of lost remixes…

Dark, mental, funny, early-eighties industrial-noise from the Brussels duo Phillippe x and Philippe X, commemorating a bolshy barrage of xeroxes and cassettes like Emissions 1 and Geometrie D’Un Assassinat.

The electronic compositions of this key member of the classic Mothers Of Invention lineup. ‘That’s impossible,’ said Robert Moog, when someone played him Waka Jawaka. ‘You can’t do that on a Moog.’

Brilliant, original, cut-and-thrust Belgian prog from 1976 (with a nod to Magma) — dark and mysterious, apocalyptic and burlesque by turns; violin, cello, piano, and trumpet besides guitar, bass, and percussion.

Banging boogie from Bob Hite’s legendary collection of rhythm and blues 78s.

Classic concrete, from 1972 — truly outstanding —  mixing live three years’ worth of samples on multiple reel-to-reels, together with the new-out ARP 2600.

Wolfli’s amazing art — exquisite Art Brut — is full of strange musical notation, which he’d play on a paper trumpet. Painstakingly unlocked here by the violinist Baudouin de Jaer. Hardbound — a lovely thing.

Early-sixties rhythm and blues, overloaded with sax and organ, testosterone and novelty.

Marc Ribot and Arto Lindsay, Sensational and Mike Ladd, with Seb el Zin. Stroppy, free, urgent, dark and noisy. Irradiated-blood-red vinyl.
