Rocket Probes November 2009 Playlist

White Hills – White Hills
(The new album has just arrived in Mission Control...it must be Christmas!!)

High Wolf – Incapulco
(Really great looped psychedelia, in a kind of Sun Araw / Ducktails sort of vibe)

Henry Flynt – Henry Flynt and Nova Billy
(An unusual but great record this one, Velvet Underground meets the Mothers, with a bit of ‘Jaki’ drumming.... and one track vocally sounds like a West Country Oneida!!!)

Various - Tetes Lourdes: Francais Metal de Proto: Le Super Rock Serie 1970
(Awesome compilation of early 70’s French psych which has been talked about a lot on Head Heritage, features some amazing heavy fuzz freakouts)

Spacemen 3 / Wooden Shjips split 7”
(Great demo version of Big City....and the Shjips doing a Spacemen 3 cover...nice artwork too)

Shit and Shine – Girls against Shit
(Great new album by Britain’s best band (ok second best)....first track sounds like a ‘wah-less’ Heads doing a cover of Sheets of Easter)

Gnod - Sex, Drones & Broken Bones (Or Secret Pathways to Hidden Lands)
(More CDR weirdness, full of flutes, chimes, horns, drones & feedback, taking you out to the further limits)

Rufus Zuphall - Weiß der Teufel
(1971 frenetic twisted flute driven raw-edged krautrock, hailing from Germany)

Can - Soundtracks ii
(Double vinyl release of actual Can musical score from various films - features dialogue intertwined with blasts of tracks only teased on the official releases - come one guys release the whole complete scores!!!)

Thunderbolt Pagoda – Second album (title TBC)
(Thanks to this great band for sending these tracks hot off the press, sounding good, especially the last 20min+ track, looking forward to seeing the vinyl out there)
