THEATER OF POISON - RAY MACHINES

Theater Of Poison - Ray MachinesThe psychedelic musical and poetic project Theater Of Poison was formed in Moscow in 1997. The band's mysterious music, difficult to describe, was characterized by the project participants as "trimelodeclamative suprematism, psychorealism and post-nihilism" and evoked myriads of associations ranging from psychedelia of the 60s, early industrial of the 70s and the gothic scene of the 80s to the work of Coil, Current 93 and The Legendary Pink Dots. The album "Ray Machines", recorded in 2000, did not become a turning point for Russian independent music only because the group Theater Of Poison at that time was in the deep underground and did not care about its "promotion" at all. However, later this record was firmly established in the audio collections of motivated listeners and music connoisseurs and greatly influenced the Russian experimental indie scene. And now the album "Ray Machines" is being reissued on CD with beautiful artwork. The CD is supplemented with a 12-page booklet with lyrics, drawings, collages and photographs; many of the materials presented are published for the first time. Special attention should be paid to the introductory article written by Fedor Svolotch (Theodor Bastard), which includes the memories of the band members about the recording of the album.

OLE LUKKØYE - ZAPARA

Ole Lukkoye - ZaparaFulldozer Records presents an extended reissue of the significant Russian album of the 90s - Ole Lukkoye "Zapara", originally released on vinyl in 1993 by the label Antrop. Ole Lukkoye does not need a special introduction: the ethno-electronic band from St. Petersburg, which has existed for more than three decades, is well known to all connoisseurs of world music and psychedelia, not only in Russia, but also far beyond. A very special place in the creative heritage of Ole Lukkoye is occupied by the first album "Zapara", recorded in 1993 at the Antrop studio in St. Petersburg. The unique and original sound of the album "Zapara" has absorbed both the influences of the best examples of the 80s darkwave scene and the tunes of various ethnos of the world, as well as the psychedelia of meditative rock and the avant-garde techniques of jazz fusion. The album's magical spirit-lifting atmosphere is enframed by hypnotic recitatives in Russian performed by Boris Bardash and Andrei Lavrinenko. The canonical CD version of the album is supplemented with two previously unreleased bonus tracks: the meditative instrumental "Enfilade" and the first version of the song "Toomze", which was recorded in 1995, but was never included in this form in the eponymous album released a year later.

NOTCHNOI PROSPEKT - DEMOCRACY AND DISCIPLINE

Notchnoi Prospekt - Democracy and Discipline"Democracy and Discipline" is a reissue of the Notchnoi Prospekt album, originally self-released on cassette in 1987. Notchnoi Prospekt was formed in 1985 by Alexei Borisov and Ivan Sokolovsky, both of whom came from an academic field. The band worked in a wide range of styles - from dance synth-pop to post-punk and industrial, becoming one of the most advanced projects of the Soviet underground. In 1987 the band was joined by drummer Sergei Pavlov and by violinist, keyboardist and vocalist Dmitry Kutergin. From that moment Notchnoi Prospekt completely immersed themselves in industrial electronics combined with psychedelia, noise, free improvisation and absurdism. At first, the audience reacted coldly to such experimental music, preferring earlier material of the mid-80s. However, by the end of the decade the situation changed, which allowed the band to tour and perform at various rock and art festivals throughout the USSR, and even to go abroad. After a long break, in 2017, the label Frozen Light released the new album "Polyurythane" - the first Notchnoi Prospekt studio album since 1993. In 2019 the Moscow label Gost Zvuk reissued the 1987 instrumental work "Health Resorts Of The Caucasus" as a double vinyl album. And now, in 2020, the time has come for "Democracy and Discipline"...

THEODOR BASTARD - VOLCH'YA YAGODA

Theodor Bastard - Volch'ya YagodaThe long-awaited new Theodor Bastard album Volch'ya Yagoda is a major work the band has been working on for the past five years. The multilayered and unpredictable album inherits the band's recognizable multigenre approach where psychedelic trip hop combines with cinematic instrumentals and archaic world music meets modern technological electronics. Theodor Bastard combine Russian texts with glossolalia and shamanic spells as easily as they change instruments on stage. From album to album Theodor Bastard carefully and masterly combine many different exotic and traditional instruments. Volch'ya Yagoda is no exception. The special northern atmosphere of the album is created with Nordic nyckelharpa and jouhikko, primeval flutes created from tree roots and shamanic percussion. And as always, the leading role in the album belongs to the voice of Yana Veva, exciting and bewitching by its deepness. Volch'ya Yagoda takes the listener to the cold and twilight realms of marshy swamps of taiga and mossy tundra, to unexplored places where the earthly plane and the spiritual world are separated only by a very thin ghostly veil. For over twenty years Theodor Bastard have been known for their amazingly serious attitude to the world beyond that very frontier.
