Head Rush - a triple LP + CD strange fish twenty-two on sale now SOLD OUT HERE ON PRE-ORDERS - IF YOU'RE ALREADY ON OUR WAITING-LIST, I HOPE FOR MORE NEWS VERY SOON
...AS PLAYED COUNTLESS TIMES BY GIDEON COE ON HIS BBC 6MUSIC SHOW!
We love 70s German bands round here, in case you hadn't noticed - so after 'Head In The Clouds' and 'Head Music 2', we have 'Head Rush' - a 3LP+CD collection of tracks that show the continuing influence of bands such as Can, Neu!, Harmonia and Kraftwerk,
and the 'motorik beat' that was pivotal to some of the most enduring recordings to come out of Germany in the early seventies.
Artists involved are a combination of old friends of the label, artists we met through recent projects like 'Head Music 2' and 'Clouds', along with some Fruits de Mer innocents, who will no doubt be regretting it in the morning: with contributions from as far afield as Peru, Australia, Italy and Fleetwood, Lancs I think it's fair to say the motorik beat goes on

Three LPs of motorik-tinged or drenched music, together with a bonus CD of tracks that arrived late, didn't quite fit the overall theme or wouldn't fit onto vinyl (30 minute tracks are a bit of a challenge) - but we wanted to share with you
We've already sold out everywhere on pre-orders alone, but if you are already on the FdM waiting-list for 'Head Rush' I'm hoping for some encouraging news for you fairly soon - we are waiting on UPS to deliver 100 copies to our European distributor, Clear Spot/Shiny Beast, but we have been waiting for over a month for them to sort out their organisation - more news as soon as possible.
