Biomechanoid (ex Brainticket - Switzerland 1980)

Hi folks,
this is my first post on PNF. (thanks Ricsi! for inviting me)
You all know Brainticket, and their classic space-prog lps such as "Celestial Ocean"... Their leader Joel Vandroogenbroeck was author of a bunch of library lps during the 80's, among them this is the first and probably best one.
Dark, strange, disturbing soundscapes, the obscure side of Brainticket, proving how Joel V. was still a creative artist - as well as his fellow Swiss painter H. R. Giger, who is the author of the cover.

Denis "ST" {France} [1978] (Acid Folk)

Rare as hell! Is it good then? You ask. Yes it is mellow songs acustic guitar and xylophone and some other cool instruments. The vinyl was problably made in less then 100 copies and released on the tiny Baba Cool System label. He lived in a hippie community and recorded the songs between 68-78 and then released this one.
The best track is the 10 min song. I get some Comus wibes when I listen to it.
(I don't think Denis complain if we upload this one)

Emily Bindiger - Emily (1971 French Acid Folk)

Thats was one of the biggest rarities and now its just up to you if you want it

Emily. Her name is Emily Bindiger. Recorded that album with Dynastie Crisis when she was 16 years old. She now singing pop and playing in musicals she had Grammy award nomination for one her album don't know why her first lp (THAT) is losted she too not tulk much about it in her bio is not mentioned too. thats her myspace page:
http://www.myspace.com/emilybindiger in her slideshow is artwork of her album too

on gemm is available to buy that LP for 200 dollar

The album is hreat part of my folk psych colection one of the best. Her voice is so good that i never heard for so young girl (16) so nice and clear voice. The songs are very nice too and all except one are made by she. The music is mainly vocals piano acoustic guitar and flute and these instruments making that album a real MASTERPIECE i still must listen and listen it again and again its an album i recommend to all acid psych folk lovers just its hard to find and expensive
The best track? Truly the B3 - Old Lace Its just flute and acoustic guitar sometimes with guitar but its one of best songs i every heard it taking me to 7th heaven. If you listen to it one time you must again and again the flutist on it is great he really know how to play flute as Ian Andersons yes that songs sometimes reminds me the Folkish Jethro Tull that song is real masterpiece its a must listen if any interestings i can send some samples if someone want

To Emily Bindiger:
Hi Emily

The balkan trio consists of three copenhagens: egon aagard, peter bastian and jon ravn that found eachother in 1972,In this album they played with Mehmet Ozan and Hugo Rasmussen, from their words: "we are heavily inspired by slavic and turkish music, from bulgarian village weddings to istanbul's night clubs.. we borrow the atmosphere, melodies and rhythms and play it the way we do with western european musical roots." A hidden treasure.

Hi folks! Been some time, i was working with friends for our upcoming place MunjX, and was busy with the things that days bring. Meanwhile i had ability to discover some new music, and places. Nowadays in real life i am building a network for a local company, and i go to nearby cities for configuration of computers, so most of my time goes on the roads. I got a cheap car with a brand new audio system, for beeing 30 years member of appartment people family, its some kind of refreshy freedom to play loudly, and over and over on the car. Today i want to introduce some of them to you.

Grovjobb is one of my favorite bands from the scene of Sweden, playing 70's like prog folk rock. While browsing our friends in myspace, i noticed a musician. It was Simon Jensen, played flute in groovjob albums and many solo projects. it is really great to listen him. later i found my self in his site, there are some tracks available to listen/download on his site. i have a strong feeling that, all of us find something special to enjoy Simon's work. feel free to pop in for discovery :)
