LSD UNDERGROUND 12 (Lysergia-2513 re) NEW 329:-
Shipping early August. Before there was psychedelic music, there was LSD Underground 12. Recorded under mysterious circumstances in Los Angeles in the Summer of 1966, this mind-blowing musical journey represents the earliest known case of musicians recording while under the effect of LSD. The result is a pioneering aural kaleidoscope of shifting moods and complex atmospheres unlike anything done before and hardly since. Recorded at a time when psychedelic music did not yet exist as a genre, it is not surprising that the music flows freely across genres, from eerie Middle Eastern desert moods and nocturnal west-coast jazz grooves into full-blown acid-rock guitar soloing, while the hallucinogenic tension is sustained and released through outbursts of piercing Avant Garde, Fluxic chaos and minimalist stasis. Sold briefly via mail-order, the 1966 record was only rumored to exist until Lysergia’s recent research verified its existence. In view of its pioneering historical status and outstanding musical quality, “LSD Underground 12” should rank as one of the greatest psychedelic music discoveries of the past 20 years. A pioneering acidhead sound unlike anything that came before it and hardly anything since... a musical riddle rising from the psychedelic catacombs. Presented by Patrick Lundborg and Lysergia, LSD UNDERGROUND 12 is available in an exclusive LP edition of 500 copies, 180 gram virgin vinyl, housed in a deluxe case wrapped tip-on-sleeve, and including a insert with in-depth liner notes.

MADRIGAL (Lysergia-14 re) NEW 329:-
Shipping early August. Finally a reissue of one of the great lost Grail’s of the NYC freak underground! Trading hands for $3-4000 on the rare occasions it is offered, Madrigal has grown into a legend among fans of psychedelic drone music. Here’s what the Acid Archives has to say: “…A rather amazing do-it-yourself descent into the murkiest depths of the early 1970s underground. It’s two guys sitting in what sounds like a boiler room, equipped with a drum machine, an electric guitar & bass and some oscillators, hotwiring themselves into the lysergic flow of the Now. The music drones and cavorts while incomprehensible screams and dialogue lurk in the background, as heard through a locked door. The atmosphere is as thick as in a nightmare…”. But Madrigal’s strongest achievement may be the seamless shift from the harrowing visions of machinery and faceless suffering on side 1 into a string of dark, haunting folk-rock numbers on side 2, a transition as natural as if these were simply the two sides of the same unclassifiable coin. Pioneering at the time and still unique today, vague parallels could be made to Suicide, the Patron Saints and Velvet Underground’s third LP, but first and last Madrigal can only be understood on its own. Re-mastered for superior sound, retaining the original artwork and pressed in a limited edition of 500s copies, 180 gram virgin vinyl, housed in a deluxe case wrapped tip-on-sleeve, and including a insert with in-depth liner notes by Patrick Lundborg.

BO ANDERS PERSSON: Love Is Here To Stay CD (Subliminal Sounds SUB-087-CD) NEW 109:-
Wow, i'm so stoked to finally announce this archival release we've been working on to get to you for a very very long time....but here it is finally hooray!: The early works by Bo Anders Persson presented on this record were written between 1965 and 1967, before he started the experimental rock band Pärson Sound (and later International Harvester, Harvester, Träd gräs och stenar). Collected on 2 LP discs and housed in a gatefold sleeve including booklet with in depth informative liner notes and pictures. Or a digipack CD with a booklet. All but one track is previously unreleased. "What is the origin of this strange, unplaceable music? What is its place in history, in the unfolding of important conceptual ideas, turning musical modernism into something wider, more mysterious and blurred? From where comes the lightness of touch, and how does the transient nature of the sounds correspond to the sense of mourning hidden within the music? What makes the music so exciting and loaded is the feeling of change, both in the actual performances and in the atmosphere of the rooms where the pieces are played. The sounds move freely within the minimal, repetitive structures. There are spaces for breathing and dreaming, turning inside and outside, and a sense of being in between positions. Suddenly the doors are wide open and radical experiments can take place".

SATURN: Saturn 12" EP (Subliminal Sounds SUB-102-LP) NEW 140:-
Limited edition 500 copies reissue of rare and very special US 70s LP (in fact it's so short it's more appropriately labeled an EP). Includes an insert with the previously untold band history and interviews by Patrick Lundborg (author of The Acid Archives and Psychedelia). Saturn; 1970s Psychedelic “Rhinestone Rock”, featuring an expressive disco-influenced female vocalist, invoking powerful visions of 70s couples under mirrored balls in downtown velvet sofa nightclubs decorated with huge day glow zodiac wall- paintings. Mystic sideshow undertones of occult and science fiction. On a superficial mainstream level, the mid-1970s may appear as one of the music scene’s less exciting eras, dominated as it was by industry-approved repetition of tired formulas. On the regional and local levels however, the situation was different and more exciting. Live music still dominated in clubs, bars and lounges, and thousands of working bands made a living playing gigs on their regional circuits. The traditional model of mimicking recent Top 40 hits had given way to a more complex challenge for club bands, who were now expected to handle a melting pot of sounds that emerged out of the creative explosion of the late ‘60s. One of the more intriguing works to emerge from this next step progression came from a Colorado-based outfit called Saturn, who released a self-titled album in 1978 containing only self-penned material, Intended more as a showcase for Saturn’s talents than a genuine commercial release but within its grooves dwells only outstanding numbers with a rare, magical atmosphere. Despite its genre-transcending originality Saturn’s demo album hardly made a blip on the radar and remains very rare today with only a few copies known among collectors. A very special album you should not miss.

(Subliminal Sounds SU-B-101-CD) New 109:-


“The New Alchemy is all about Swedish artists Per Svensson and Ebbot Lundberg making dark, intricate, swirling rock psychedlia.” Ebbot Lundberg and Per Svensson had started their careers as artists at the legendary Radium 226.05 in Gothenburg during the swinging 1980´s. Per was releasing soundart and poetry and Ebbot being the lead singer of Union Carbide Productions at that time. During the following decades both guys have been developing their art; Per continuing on as a solo artist and Ebbot as the well known lead singer of TSOOL - The Soundtrack of Our Lives. Now the time has finally come for them to join forces in the New Alchemy. The band is made complete with an all-star cast of Mats Gustafsson (highly renowned musician with Sonic Youth and myriads of other bands), Patrik Caganis (Union Carbide Productions) - We’ve been living parallel lives for a while and sometimes we’ve bumped into each other during the last decades. And now finally we have decided to collaborate and put our ideas, our density and our gravity together /Ebbot Lundberg. - It feels like a groovy alchemic trip. The songs are created in the eggs of the cosmic serpent that uncoils into the year of the snake. /Per Svensson. The concept of the New Alchemy is to mix, and deliver new psychedelia. This will be done with the constellation of cunning artists/musicians followed by more psychedelic live alchemy, a world wide release and live shows.The new album is being released by Stefan Kéry’s wayward music company Subliminal Sounds, that has worked with making Swedish psychedelia a universal concern for the last decades. Sessions were executed at Northern Europe's largest megalithic monument; Ale´sStones(AleStenar)at Kåseberga in the South of Sweden and at the new secret space observatory at Råö situated by the sea on the Swedish west coast south, amongst other places and studios.

KVARTETTEN SOM SPRÄNGDE Kattvals
(Subliminal Sounds SW 13 RE)
Black vinyl version 220:-
Purple vinyl version (200 copies) 240:-
First ever vinyl reissue of one of the most sought after, and beautiful, psych rock, progressive pre-jazz rock instrumental albums ever recorded in Sweden. Originally released during the summer 1973 on the obscure Gump label. Powered by a C-3 organ, Ludwig kit and 50-watt Marshall head with a home-built cabinet, the skilled 3-piece band (not a quartet that the band name would have you believe) absolutely soars on this record blasting away fantastically. The delicate use of the studio echo-chamber lends a magical, gossamer reverb to the whole album's sound. Includes a 4-page insert with lots of never before published photos and extensive liner notes by Reine Fiske

PÄRSON SOUND – 3 x LP BOX-SET (Subliminal Sounds) NEW 440:-
Deluxe triple LP box set. A spectacular archival package of primitive drone and minimalist rock/trance/psych from the Swedish underground, believe the hype as follows; one of the most memorable audio documents ever. After years of research we're proud to present the nucleus of the Swedish 1960's-70s underground psych rock scene: the legendary Pärson Sound. This deluxe 3-LP box set presents the most remarkable Swedish underground band, known in a later incarnation and continuation as International Harvester and Träd, Gräs och Stenar, and features both intricate studio recordings and orgiastic live performances. The recordings date from 1967/68 while the band explored unknown musical territory as well as inner- and outer space. In 1968 they were invited by Andy Warhol to play at the opening of his exhibition: 'Screens, Films, Boxes, Clouds and a Book', at the museum of Modern Art in Stockholm and also opened for the Doors. Influenced by the musical concepts of Terry Riley, Pärson Sound worked at discovering and perfecting their own unique approach towards the mixing of rock and minimalism. They created some of the most remarkable psych- trance-drone-pre-noise music-rock sounds ever recorded. Their key phrase was 'We, Here and Now!' With time, the music came to have an increasing 'religious' or shamanistic streak -- with a raised demand of intensity, presence and warmth -- a striving for euphoria and ecstasy. The bands psychedelic approach towards music is so fresh and vital that it transcends time. Listen to it now! A 3xLP with an informative liner notes in English and lots of photos. Limited edition 500 copies.
