Lord Sutch And Heavy Friends
NEWLY REMASTERED CD RELEASE OF THIS CLASSIC 1970 ALBUM BY LORD SUTCH
FEATURING GUESTS JIMMY PAGE, JOHN BONHAM, JEFF BECK, NOEL REDDING and NICKY HOPKINS
BOOKLET WITH FULLY RESTORED ARTWORK & ESSAY
ESOTERIC RECORDINGS are pleased to announce the release of a newly remastered edition of the eccentric all-star Psychedelic rock album "LORD SUTCH & HEAVY FRIENDS”.
Screaming Lord Sutch was one of the most notorious figures of the British music scene of the 1960s. With his group the Savages he was arguably the first "shock rock” star. The group also nurtured the talents of notable musicians such as Ritchie Blackmore, Jimmy Page, Mick Abrahams, Noel Redding, Mitch Mitchell and Adrian Gurvitz.
By 1969 many of his protégés had gone on to stardom in their own right as members of Led Zeppelin, the Jimi Hendrix Experience and Deep Purple or as solo artists. In May of that year Lord Sutch and a group of musicians including Jimmy Page (who also produced the sessions), Noel Redding, Jeff Beck, John Bonham and Nicky Hopkins gathered at Mystic studios in Hollywood to begin work on this eccentric album.
Released on Atlantic Records in 1970, "Lord Sutch and Heavy Friends” has divided opinion ever since its release, with some hailing it as a lost classic of psychedelic rock. Now a highly sought after collectors item, this Esoteric Recordings edition is newly remastered from the original tapes and offers the listener the chance to experience Lord Sutch and Heavy Friends once again.

Release Date: 29/07/2013

Prophecy
·       THE NEW STUDIO ALBUM FROM 80s PROGRESSIVE ROCK LEGENDS SOLSTICE
·       FEATURING THREE REMIXES BY STEVEN WILSON
·       UK CONCERTS IN THE AUTUMN OF 2013

Esoteric Antenna are pleased to announce the release of the new studio album by 80s Progressive Rock legends Solstice. In the 1980s Solstice were one of the leading lights of the UK Progressive scene.  Still fronted by guitarist Andy Glass, and also featuring Steve McDaniel (keyboards), Robin Phillips (bass), Pete Hemsley (drums), Jenny Newman (violin) and Emma Brown (vocals), the band’s iconic blend of soaring violin and guitar weaving around delicately passionate female vocals, underpinned by driving rhythmic complexity remains true and is much in force on "Prophecy”, their latest studio offering.   This excellent album also features four bonus tracks, three of which are new remixes by Solstice aficionado Steven Wilson.

Available 21/10/2013

Sontaag
•    STUNNING NEW ALBUM IN THE FINEST TRADITIONS OF PROGRESSIVE ROCK & SPACE ROCK
•    CO PRODUCED BY YOUTH (KILLING JOKE, THE FIREMAN)
•    ILLUSTRATED BOOKLET WITH NEW ESSAY

Stunning new album in finest tradition of progressive rock and space rock  

Pucker up and kiss… the apocalypse.   In the grand tradition of high concept progressive rock comes an epic cross-media hybrid where cerebral science fiction meets visceral rock ‘n’ roll. Sontaag’s eponymous debut album has been described as ‘the space opera that Pink Floyd never wrote’, ‘a modern-day Tubular Bells’, ‘a prog-rock War Of The Worlds’, but no reference point or sound-bite nails its seamless combination of space rock, narrative spoken word, and evocative post-Orb ambience quite as neatly as ‘sonic cinema’.

Recorded in New York City and London, co-produced and mixed by Youth (Killing Joke, The Fireman) for Big Life Management, ‘Sontaag’ is a stunning and immersive listening experience. An evolutionary progression combining cutting edge sounds with classic dynamics, adapting the rock experience for today’s digital environment. Arriving in a landscape where music, books and movies often co-exist on a single handheld device, ‘Sontaag’ represents a seamless fusion of the finest elements of all three.  

Sontaag's central sci-fi concept unfolds in a distant galaxy…  

The Ancients, through a long process of trial and error, had discovered the secret of synthesizing essential energy from harmonic sound, giving them the power to reanimate extinct planets by utilising giant orbiting sonic generators. But life came at a price. The newly supplanted inhabitants of MP-5 were compelled to provide the musical fuel for The Great Harmodulator simply to stay alive.

Sontaag features Richard Sontaag (composition, instruments, concept, co-production) and Ian Fortnam (story, lyrics, voice, concept).
