MUGSTAR + DAMO SUZUKI – ‘START FROM ZERO’ LP
Limited edition of 500 copies packaged in a heavy duty gatefold sleeve. Blue vinyl copies are available exclusively via Imprec mailorder. On a long hot summer night in 2012 a meeting of minds happened in Liverpool, England. Damo Suzuki (Can) visited the city to play a show with Mugstar. After a flurry of e-mails Damo requested Mugstar not to practice or figure out any music prior to the performance, as he believed it should “Start from Zero”. Leaving the whole performance to be entirely improvised on the spot. It proved to be quite a night: the shamanic presence of the legendary Damo Suzuki immersed in the full-on, intense, sound of Mugstar- one of the leading bands currently exploring fresh and uncharted areas – as they forge forward through the deep space of kraut/psych.

MAURIZIO BIANCHI – ‘UNTITLED 1980/UNTITLED 2013’ CD
Active since 1979, Maurizio Bianchi is an Italian pioneer of noise and industrial music. Untitled 1980 was originally released in 1980 on cassette in Japan. This release marks the first re-issue of this work and pairs it with a 2013 re-working of the original material into four entirely new compositions. This work was created using only a single semi-modular, monophonic synthesizer or, as Maurizio says: “Originally composed in October 1980 simply by using a synthesizer KORG MS20, but with so much imagination.Dedicated to technological sophistication. “
