"There is so much groovy music here..." WHERE TO START???

I recommend to
start with the HLFP-Samplers (especially HLFP 04).
Here you will come to know many of the bands/musicians featured in this blog. If you like what you hear, you may check out more of their music later on.
(You may also click on the picture on the sidebar and you will find the original post with download links.)

There is also a "FOCUS ON..." section. Here you will find albums that in my opinion are absolutely great (***** = "five-stars-recordings") and that are essential listening and strongly recommended for download.

Please don't send me any more music submissions

and emails until further announcement!

I TRY to RE-UP some stuff that has been down from time to

time, but I still don't have enough time to

listen to/post much new stuff.


IMPRESSUM: see here!

Demis CousCous - Dog Kill Bird (UK 2007)

Not too long ago I posted some free-form-freak-out-psych-rock by GRASSMONKEY, a band that featured DEMIS COUSCOUS on bass. Here is a solo work by Demis. It's completely different in style, so for those of you who didn't like the wild improvisations of GRASSMONKEY (if there are some people at all...), you might nevertheless enjoy this recording here, that is very much in a folk or singer-songwriter style (though admittedly sometimes a little weird - like a cross between NICK CAVE (that is: if he had any humour) and Tom Redecker, the singer of the German psych folk band THE PERC MEETS THE HIDDEN GENTLEMAN and later THE ELECTRIC FAMILY (that probably nobody except me will know... - check it out if you are so lucky to find a copy of one of their rare records).

"This album was pieced together from an aborted project entitled "Remove The Cancer". Some tracks are unfinished works from that album, others were written and recorded after the "...cancer" album fell apart. Others are completed items originally intended for the aborted album...
The album was recorded in livingrooms and bedrooms across the south coast of England between June and September 2007 on a Roland VS2400CD digital recorder using a few battered old microphones. The drums were overdubbed last minute in an old disused TV studio in Winchester..." (DCC quote from email info)
