SHOCKABILLY "VIETNAM & HEAVEN"

CD - $15 (Free shipping within the U.S.A., $20 int'l)

In late 1981, after just under two years as "THE CHADBOURNE'S" (with John Zorn & Tom Cora), guitar virtuoso EUGENE CHADBOURNE, percussionist DAVID LICHT and KRAMER decided to ditch the C&W repetiore and follow more closely in the footsteps of Jimi Hendrix and the echoes of psychedelia. The resulting 5-song EP, DAWN OF SHOCKABILLY (recorded in 1982) was heard by Rough Trade's Geoff Travis, and he signed them immediately. After 3 releases, numerous disastrous world tours and globally dismal sales, Rough Trade dropped SHOCKABILLY in 1984, just as they were putting the finishing touches on SHOCKABILLY VIETNAM at Carla Bley's Grog Kill Studio. A few months later, SHOCKABILLY HEAVEN was born during the death throes of this great but little known band. Both of these classic LP's are presented here on ONE CD, originally re-released in 1999 on Kramer's SHIMMY-DISC label.

THE SOUND OF MUSIC

CD - $15 (Free shipping within the U.S.A., $20 int'l)

TEN YEARS AFTER "ROLL OUT THE BARREL", KRAMER AND JAD REUNITE for this stunning collaboration. An indispensable part of any modern music library, JAD was never better, or braver, or more self-assured than he was with his performances herein. Recorded in the same fashion as their first collaboration ten years prior, KRAMER prepared the pieces alone in the studio, and JAD recorded his vocals in a single day. Another Goddamn Masterpiece. Need we say more?
