Luna Sea "Luna Sea" 1976 US Private Country Prog,Symphonic Rock









Luna Sea "Luna Sea" 1976 US very rare excellent.. Private Country Prog,Symphonic Rock
full 
Rare 1976 private press prog rock record from Nebraska. This one hardly ever turns up and I've been sitting on this copy for over 15 years. Never turned up in quantity, tiny pressing, local Nebraska band that faded away into oblivion. Side one is mainstream midwestern 70s FM rock and side two is exciting 70s prog rock with synths, guitars firing on all cylinders, even the flute makes an appearance. What a strange record!.....
The only record of the American band originally from Nebraska. The album was recorded in Iowa in 1976 and consists of 2 parts. Obviously, musicians quite consciously titled one side of the "light side" and the other "dark side." The first side is a country-rock a la «Eagles», but the other side of her perfect contrast: there are synthesizers, and everything becomes much more interesting. The last track «Rousing The Ghost» - instrumental symphonic prog with beautiful guitar, keyboards and flute. It's hard to say what the band were trying to achieve by writing on one plate material is two completely different musical directions, but, obviously, this is the nature of the American underground. One part of the standard music, and one part of this inspiration. However, mixing different styles were very common for groups of 70. Craig Nance, who was the guitarist on this album, now lives in Harlan (Iowa), which provides music lessons and still performs with various jazz groups. Tells Collin Thompson, drummer and vocalist: "In the late '70s, we went on tour with the band« Fireball », and when they released the album under the name of« Luna Sea «, is so upset us, we decided of initiating their claim." Next, the story makes it clear that the court was lost, musical equipment had to sell to pay court costs, and to dissolve the group. Thus ended the story of «Luna Sea». An interesting detail: the British group «Queen» for his album «Innuendo», released in 1991, used the exact same cover, only the color.......

Bodo Molitor “Hits Internacionales” 1969 Mexico Garage Psych





Bodo Molitor  “Hits Internacionales” 1969 Mexico Garage Psych
full 
Globe-trotting artist Bodo Molitor may have been born in Germany, but heêll forever be associated with the psychedelic scene in Mexico. In addition to creating the zoomorphic art for his own bizarre album, he also created the psychedelic art for the Kaleidoscope album, for La Libre Expresion, and for his brother Reinholdês solo album.
As for –Hits Internacionales”, it has all the ambience and psychedelic delirium of the time, full of devastating fuzz and wacked out rhythms. And then there is Bodoês raspy and savage voice. Impressive. As Antonio Malcara says in his book “Catologo subjetivo y segregacionista del Rock Mexicano”, this LP and that of Kaleidoscope are the two most important and representative pieces of Mexican garage rock-psychedelia. Collectors offer thousands of dollars to be able to get an original copy of –Hits Internacionales” in good condition.

Barbara Muller “Double Premiere” Private US 1964 Psych Folk






Barbara Muller “Double Premiere” Private US 1964  Psych Folk
Barbara has a very nice Earthy full deeper tenor voice with a little grit in places, and sometimes very gentle, perfect. I love he voice.  She is also a very good guitar player.
I personally prefer to listen to Barbara more than say Joan Baez.
Her 1964 version of “Babe I’m Gonna Leave You”  reminds me a little of the 1969 Led Zeppelin version,  both instrumentally (the guitar) and the vocal, interesting.
Canadian songwriter Sonia Brock wrote 4 of the songs including “All Hallows”, which according to the albums liner notes explores “the Dark Mysteries of the Witches’ Sabbath, reflecting Sonia’s once intense interest in the Occult.”  (Perhaps she even had an early interest in Alistair Crowley, before Zep?!?)
Recorded live in August 1964, in the Chapel of the Theological Seminary

Bad Habit “Stormchild” 1977 Australia Private Punk Rock only 300 copies pressed



Bad Habit “Stormchild” 1977 Australia ulta rare  Private  Punk Rock  only 300 copies pressed

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fUFq4mDDiq0

Neil Coombe formed Bad Habit in 1975 at age 15, along with fellow members Paul Wilton and Neal Ward. The group first started playing in Ipswich QLD where they were based. A short while after they started gigging in Brisbane and elsewhere throughout south-east Queensland and northern New South Wales. Bad Habit recorded some demos in early 1976 and supported AC/DC at Festival Hall later in the year (18 December). Early in 1977, Wilton left the group and was replaced by Steve Arthurson and John Pankoff . It was this line-up that recorded their debut album 'Stormchild'. 

The group disbanded shortly after the LP was issued. 300 copies of the album were pressed through EMI Custom, with group members being responsible for sale and distribution. It is remarkable that "Stormchild" appeared on vinyl at all, considering the difficulties that the group experienced during the recording and mixing of the album, and all on a budget of $600! Neil Coombe later appeared as a member of 42nd Street, Mr Meaner, Fear Of Falling and The Wishing Chair.........

This album along with THE SAINTS debut "I'm Stranded" were the ONLY QUEENSLAND-recorded PUNK 12" LP's released in the 1970s. All other output appeared on either 7" (single/EP) or cassette format. It is remarkable that "Stormchild" appeared on vinyl at all, considering the difficulties that the group experienced during the recording and mixing of the album, and all on a budget of $600! The BAD HABIT story continues below… 

NEIL COOMBE (lead guitarist and backing vocalist) formed BAD HABIT in 1975 at age 15, along with fellow members PAUL WILTON (bass guitarist and lead vocalist) and NEAL WARD (drummer). The group first started playing in IPSWICH (40km south-west of BRISBANE) where they were based, and then started gigging in BRISBANE and elsewhere throughout south-east Queensland and northern New South Wales. BAD HABIT recorded some demos in early 1976 and supported AC/DC at Festival Hall later in the year (18 December). Early in 1977, PAUL WILTON left the group and was replaced by STEVE ARTHURSON (lead vocalist and second guitarist) and JOHN PANKOFF (bass guitarist and backing vocalist). It was this line-up that recorded the album. The ALL ORIGINAL SONG-WRITING CREDITS were shared between NEIL COOMBE and STEVE ARTHURSON. 

The "Stormchild" recording sessions took place between June and September 1977 in a chicken barn in the rural town of LOWOOD (I'm not joking!). The group travelled out west from their home base at IPSWICH every weekend to get there. Engineer RICHARD FAINT would set up two AKAI 4-track reel to reels in the back of a big old truck, and run all the leads into an old barn where the group had hay bales cordoning off the drums and amps facing into walls of pumpkins! Sometimes nuts and seeds would fall from an overhanging tree and roll down a corrugated roof ruining a vocal take, and the group would be forced to perform again—really difficult circumstances. In addition, some overdubbing did occur in a group member's IPSWICH residence. RICHARD FAINT's American girlfriend JENNY STOOPS was a graveyard shift announcer on Brisbane Alternative Radio Station 4ZZZ at the time. So for a few weekends the group would sneak in with her and use the console at the St Lucia (Qld Uni) campus to mix the recordings! 

BAD HABIT disbanded shortly after the LP was issued. There were ONLY 300 COPIES of the album pressed through EMI Custom, with group members being responsible for sale and distribution. NEIL COOMBE later appeared as a member of 42nd STREET, MR MEANER, FEAR OF FALLING and THE WISHING CHAIR, and remains active in the recording industry today. 

Musically the album ranges from OUT-AND-OUT PUNK SNARLERS "Burning Yearning", "Don’t Touch", "Leave It Up To Rock & Roll" through to more introspective moments "Shine On", "Skies", "I Know Who I Am Now". But just when you are about to relax, along comes a HEAVY ROCK passage that threatens to blow guitar shards out of your speakers. The title track "Stormchild" is an angst-ridden tune that begins with quietly spoken vocals about a child in distress. Then the punk music kicks in and takes us to a completely different place. The ETHEREAL PSYCH AND DUAL LEAD GUITAR SOUND on "Lonely Song" would not sound out of place on an early 1970s progressive rock private pressing. In my opinion, the low fidelity production actually enhances the listening experience!...by.....TrippyHippy ........

Like many bad habits, this one was formed as a product of teenage boredom - a 15 year old Neil Coombe (g) and buddies Paul Wilton (b,v) and Neal Ward (d) first began making a racket together in 1975. By 1977, after a couple of years of gigging (including a support slot for AC/DC at Brisbane's Festival Hall), Wilton had been replaced by Steve Arthurson (v,g) and John Pankof (b), and the expanded line-up retreated to a rural chicken barn to record Stormchild, Bad Habit's one and only LP. 

An online bio of sorts fills gaps in the timeline and provides more detail about the recording of this LP, including the factoid that vocal takes were often ruined by the sound of gumnuts falling from an overhanging tree onto the barn's tin roof (from the sound of Arthurson's voice, those were the only dropped nuts in the vicinity of the vocal mic). It also promulgates some outrageous hyperbole about the record's punk-ness, the most noteworthy claim being that Stormchild was one of only two '70s Queensland-recorded punk LPs ((I'm) Stranded, of course, being the other). To our ears, the teenage amateurism and lo-fi recording herein certainly warrant the adjective "punky", but only as a qualifier to "hard rock". If these kids had heard the Sex Pistols, or ventured in to Corinda to catch The Saints, then it didn't osmose into their own efforts. Tsk tsk, TrippyHippy, if indeed that is your real name. 

Punk rock or no, there is much to appreciate across Stormchild's ten tracks, which showcase a fairly advanced sense of composition for those so young. There are quieter passages and lengthier songs - all worthy, mind - but to comply with the Wallaby Beat remit we focus here on the most straight ahead rockers. The astute listener will note that all three songs plunder the same basic chord progression, yet each is distinct in its own right. To a degree, this is testament to the band's creativity in making the most of a limited palette, but the inventive lead work of guitarist Neil Coombe is deserving of particular credit. Coombe's playing runs the gamut from tasteful economy (the stellar dual lead interplay in Don't Touch) to tasteless bombast (see Burning Yearning, surely the most effective use of the chipmunk guitar solo this side of the Bob Seger System, and a WTF? moment that surpasses even our old friends Toxic), but is never anything less than great. 

Neil Coombe himself is dismissive of Stormchild and his own contribution to the record:......

1967 hippie-folk LP in the Greenwich Village style. According to Acid Archives Brown later became a “holy wandering man” in the Haight-Ashbury scene, and may have been the subject of the Grateful Dead’s “Cosmic Charlie”. 
During Charlie Brown’s (aka Charles Artman) travels he befriended mountain climbers in the Tetons of Wyoming. The Teton Tea Parties were initially led by Billy Briggs in the Jackson Hole area (later led by Charlie in Berkeley) and consisted of all night folk music playing events for climbers and musicians that would later reach “mythical status as a sort of mountaineering Woodstock”. This album, recorded in 1966, features anecdotes about, and inspirations from, his travels. The songs are accompanied with dulcimer, banjo and, even, musical saw (like in “Down in the Valley” on which he also yodels).....
