COUM Transmissions – ‘Home Aged & The 18 Month Hope’ LP
The most recent installment of the rare & unheard archival recordings from the transgressive 70â€²s performance art group COUM Transmissions. Founded in late 1969 by Genesis P-Orridge, COUM Transmissionsâ€™s provocative performances mixed with visual art solidified the group as one of the most forward thinking breakthroughs within the 70â€²s conceptual art scene. Only in the past couple years has COUMâ€™s recorded works seen the light of day. This release collects various selections spanning the years 1971 through 1975, including a rare live performance opening for Hawkwind, lost radio interview, obtuse poetry readings by early member Fizzey Peat, piano & violin compositions by Genesis P-Orridge and insightful field recordings. Limited to 1,000 vinyl copies.
Youth Code s/t LP $18
Youth Code needs no introduction. Theyâ€™ve taken LA (and the world) by storm in less than a year. Their demo tape threw the scene on it’s side, and their 7â€³ on Angry Love quickly followed up with another uppercut of strict BPM.
