Singles compilation featuring another of Guinea's state-sponsored authenticité outfits. The only sides missing are Munu Ngiedi / Kitoko Mingi - first of two singles with Franklin Boukaka, and Marie - b-side of their very last Syliphone 45. Lemme know if you've got 'em and are willing to share. In the meantime, please kiss his noose.

NNB - a taste of



Minneapolis record store geeks take matters into their own hands. Here's all twenty minutes of wax that I know of. They seem to have been big Pere Ubu and Television fans, and there's some linkage with The Scene Is Now. I saw them at a Soho loft No Wave fest as many of that movement's pioneers were passing into history. Check out YouTube NNB live @ Hurrah NYC 1981 here.

paul bley - mr. joy



There are worse-sounding jazz albums, like Curtis Counce's Exploring The Future, but that was made on the cheap for Dooto, a label known primarily for raunchy party records. This was recorded in Seattle on either side of a concert date at the University of Washington, so maybe The Sonics and Wailers had all the decent studios booked solid for their concept albums. Cover art clearly targets the underground rock market, with Bley's lover and in-house theme genie Annette Peacock featured on the inside of the trendy Unipak folder having her breasts massaged. Endless fiddling with the stereo to try to make this thing sound a little better could spoil the mood, though. It's never been reissued on CD, not even in Japan.
