... thanks for everyone's patience during the move !!! while it did take about a week longer than scheduled to get even the most basic elements of mms up & running again (i.e. records back on the shelves [in order !!!] ; packing & shipping bench upright & operational) we can safely say that things are finally getting back to normal around here ...

... we're just about caught up with invoicing & shipping orders placed during our closure & we've started opening up the dozens of boxes of new titles that arrived in our absence, updating the site here to show all of the new arrival & restock activities over the past few weeks (scanner & stereo are still boxed up, so full workups are still pending) ...

... as a token of appreciation to everyone that helped us out by placing a "closeout" order in the days leading up to the move (and due to a number of requests for more time to properly investigate / strategize a more thorough sweep of the dwindling list of titles on offer) i've extended the exhaustive "closeoupacolypse" one final time until the end of the spring ; this should afford everyone the proper resources to make their final selections ...

june 2008 release ; ... the “reissue(actually; those quotes are justified for once; this was never really available in the first place...) of amos & lepke b (the homosexuals) ’s modern shit tapes (remixes of by-the-hour production work the pair engineered in the early 80s) ...

this was previously only available in a pricey two-pack the the “artcoustics” book ; the disc now available by its lonesome. much linn-drum boom/bap, cut with plunderphonic audio snippets & tape-speed manipulations. kind of amazing, actually ; esp. given the time-period in which this music was executed ...

"will make you ill"
(cat no. plana-m 14tes.071)
digipack cd

edition of 500 copies

after surfacing briefly in 2007 in a very limited number of copies on slim-jewel-box together with the "artkoustics" catalogue, alga marghen is now proud to presents the final edition of modern shit, a very singular chapter in the amos/it's war boys/milk from cheltenham/homosexuals history. directly taken from the original it's war boys catalogue, here is one of the most obscure sonic works of the early 1980s, modern shit! first "issued" on tape (cat no. $21) this work circulated only privately among the close friends of the label and was never officially distributed. actually it represents one of the most intense and experimental outputs of this creative london period.

the idea was to create a contemporary "non-stop", vaguely in emulous contradiction to product by people like cerrone and biddulph (1970's disco queens). lepke and amos, the two minds behind this project (and 2/3 of the milk from cheltenham adventures), each constructed a half hour near-continuous non-stop using only the foulest materials. in those days they had their 8-track studio in a mouldy basement below brixton road, south london and they happened to occasionally record some awful wannabee pop bands. it was a truly horrible experience but with a good side. almost as soon as the idiots left the studio, lepke and amos would start re-mixing their music, often stealing and sticking it (suitably mangled) onto new tracks, the basis material for modern shit!

the cd is presented in a new digipack edition with full colour cover. final edition of 500 copies.

milk from cheltenham

triptych of poisoners

featuring:
victorr lounge
lepke buchwalter
salamander

producer:
xentos bentos

executive producer:
emanuele carcano

they've come together from the 4 corners of the world...

lepke is the man who does the impossible everythime he picks up a tin, carton, bottle or instrument. the first person with enough originality to adopt 'anything' to his own idiosyncratic style; still without peers in this world. retired to an obscure basement until the commercial success of the teaming with 'milk' brought him back full time' to music scene.

lounge makes rhythms that by this time need no words of praise with a wallop. that when felt, makes the usual praise words disintegrate, a mix of inestimable ability with feeling as wild as it is rare; this is probably the most compelling, impelling, propelling rendezvous of his talent on disc today.

salamander has that certain something that most people can never have even if they practice for an eternity. most important in his ~influence most endearing in his emotional impact and most convincing in his new found authority. usten him career around the bends and twists of 'crazy golf' where the rest of us would be just leaving the starting post. on this hearing he is a force to be reckoned with.
