Beyond the Wizard’s Sleeve Ark 1

After spending a miserable august* I decided to rest during september. I am now ready to start doing stuff again. My projects are to join the lion’s club, take some first aid training, and polish my cv among other stuff.  Here are my albums for august (better late than never) and for september.
* I thank growth group meetings, the occasional visits of lovely Action people, randomly meeting Mark who shared my misery [sorry Mark, didn’t have time to text you to go for lunch], and the distinctive weekend  for preventing me from losing my mental sanity
.

SEPTEMBER

 Beyond the Wizard’s Sleeve ~Beyond the Wizard’s Sleeve Ark 1

Rough Trade (I don’t think they’ll print many copies of this, get it asap). Psychedelic? Yes, Weird? Definitely, Krautrock? I don’t even know what that is. Apparently, two people (Richard Norris & Arol Alkan) have been releasing some remixes of old songs under the name Beyond the Wizard’s Sleeve. This is a compilation of their best stuff. This album is really really good, but it might be a bit hard to find. I got it off rough trade before leaving the uk, and it’s probably the only place that has got it as far as I know (not available at amazon, emusic, etc, though maybe an indie record store at picadilly in mancunian lands might have a copy). This album seems to be so obscure that there are no youtube links or much info about it anywhere (it doesn’t even credit the original sources in the booklet). The only thing I’ve found is a link to a gmex live show here: http://www.archive.org/details/BeyondTheWIzardsSleeveBeyondTheWizardsSleeveLiveAtTheGMex_ManchesterJuly2007
According to their myspace ( http://www.myspace.com/beyondthewizardssleeve ) they’ve got a live show in manchester this coming 29 of november. I’d love to attend, but I most likely won’t be there that day so meh. (more…)
