Voices, two voices, other voices, meld and weld into songs of murmer. On listening I can hear reflective graceful holographic light beams. The air is substantial and delayed to the sounds of futuristic folk. The sun is creeping into the room and drifting on the drone, showing rainbow coloured specks of dust, they are like tiny hallucinatory planets carried off to oblivion. From Mt Eden Village up there in Auckland, recently doing tours with The Trendees, Pumice and Kraus and other like minded visionaries. A new record @ 45rpm - 7" lathe record ltd 21 copies, nz$15 each email me for postage root don lonie for cash at hotmail dot com.
*On a side note, Peter Kings lathe records are sounding really really excellent. I have been getting Peter to make lathe records for me for over 20 years (!!!) & at the moment, hes on fire! So I am really proud to be making these records for these wonderful bands, & I am still planning some kind of CD or tape(?) compilation featuring all the 7"s so far (21 releases on Heavy Space). Thanks, CN.

Like super bad villains from a 60s tv show, mysterious & untouchable. This instrumental band from the bowels of the Waikato uses a casio drum machine & four electric guitars. Swirl & swish, pedal hopping, slow rock with surf twang poppy hooks. From Hamilton, its foggy tremor hangs over the songs like a heavy heart. Ltd 20 copies, from me rootdonlonieforcash at hotmail dot com, nz$15 plus more to post.

Witcyst! My fav Whangarei artist of music & trash, with walls covered in history & collages & eyes in front of old screen technology & warped radio. Theres a constant traffic buzz & early morning walks with the dog, dumpster diving for old medical toys & a hand painted Hillman Hunter. The 7" single is 5 minutes of nearly pure pop either side, chorus & verse & verse & chorus, even hints of guitar solos & repetitive syllables that are nearly words. The c10 tape is brutal abrasive low fi hi noise. LTD 25 copies, email me at the root don lonie email record+tape is nz$20 but will have to quote postage.
