Esoteric Antenna are pleased to announce the release of the eagerly awaited new studio collaborative album by PETER HAMMILL & GARY LUCAS. Peter Hammill’s work, both as a solo artist and as part of Van Der Graaf Generator, is legendary, whilst Gary Lucas has worked closely with many great artists and vocalists, including Don Van Vliet (Captain Beefheart) and Jeff Buckley.

Described by Peter as "something quite strange, but strangely powerful”, all the music on "Other World” has been created using nothing more than guitars and Hammill’s unique vocals. Songs and other worldly instrumental tracks create a sonic atmosphere that is unique and spellbinding.

A stunning work, "Other World” is certain to be one of the most unique and atmospheric albums of 2014. This limited edition LP is housed in a gatefold sleeve with a printed inner bag.

A Grounding In Numbers (Vinyl Edition)
The brand new studio album by the legendary Van Der Graaf Generator. Esoteric Recordings are proud to announce the release of the new Van Der Graaf Generator album, "A Grounding in Numbers”. The stunning new album is the band’s 12th studio record by the band and is their first since 2008. The album will be released as both a CD and a limited edition individually numbered vinyl LP edition (restricted to 2000 copies) and will be backed up by a short tour of the UK and some dates in Europe. In April 2010 Peter Hammill, Hugh Banton and Guy Evans met up for intensive tracking sessions in Cornwall, arranging, rehearsing and recording the album in a week. Some of the pieces were already fully-formed songs; others, even at this stage, remained more sketches than fully realised works. Over the next months the tracks were overdubbed, edited and adapted by the band in their own studios. By September the project was ready to be mixed. Legendary producer Hugh Padgham agreed to take on this part of the process - the first time anyone outside the band had been entrusted such responsibility. After three weeks in Hugh’s London studio, Sofasound (which shares its name with Peter’s original home set-up), "A Grounding in Numbers” was completed. With a fantastic clarity and depth of sound and a helter-skelter stretch of tunes, "A Grounding...” sees VdGG pushing ever further forward into the twenty first century. Clearly, they know they’re a group with a certain history - but they are also an emphatically modern one.

Alt - LP Edition
  A LIMITED VINYL EDITION OF THE NEW PROJECT BY VdGG
  FEATURES ONE TRACK EXCLUSIVE TO THE LP EDITION: ‘LOOP J2’
 AN ALTERNATIVE ALBUM REFLECTING ANOTHER SIDE OF ONE OF PROGRESSIVE ROCK’S MOST ENDURING AND CREATIVE ARTISTS


Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the latest release on their front-line label, ESOTERIC ANTENNA, dedicated to new releases by both new acts and established artists. ‘ALT’ is a new project by the legendary VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR and follows on from the release of "A GROUNDING IN NUMBERS” in 2011.   "ALT” is no ordinary Van Der Graaf Generator album (if the term "ordinary” could ever be applied to this visionary group). PETER HAMMILL explains; "Instrumental Improvs & Experiments - Most of the music on "ALT” was made while we weren't really looking, or perhaps only while the left side of our collective brain was engaged. The album is a mixture of improvisations recorded at sound checks and in the studio and more considered sonic creations which often verge on Musique Concrete. The nine pieces here offer a fascinating glimpse into an alternative Van der Graaf Generator sound world. Perhaps the closest comparison would be with the second CD of "Present", but even the link with those recordings is tenuous. Even by Van der Graaf Generator standards, this stuff's at the whacky end of the scale!”  

This instrumental album is another side of Van Der Graaf Generator, a truly unique listening experience.

Alt - CD Edition
THE NEW PROJECT FROM VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR

AN ALTERNATIVE ALBUM REFLECTING ANOTHER SIDE OF ONE OF PROGRESSIVE ROCK’S MOST ENDURING AND CREATIVE ARTISTS


Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the latest release on their front-line label, ESOTERIC ANTENNA, dedicated to new releases by both new acts and established artists. ‘ALT’ is a new studio project by the legendary VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR and follows on from the release of "A GROUNDING IN NUMBERS” in 2011.   "ALT” is no ordinary Van Der Graaf Generator album (if the term "ordinary” could ever be applied to this visionary group).

The album is a mixture of improvisations recorded at sound checks and in the studio and more considered sonic creations which often verge on Musique Concrete. The fourteen pieces here offer a fascinating glimpse into an alternative Van der Graaf Generator sound world. Perhaps the closest comparison would be with the second CD of "Present", but even the link with those recordings is tenuous. Even by Van der Graaf Generator standards, this stuff's at the wacky end of the scale!”   This instrumental album is another side of Van Der Graaf Generator, a truly unique listening experience.

Press:-

"Alt is, according to Hammill, a collection of instrumental improvisations recorded "while we weren't really looking or while the left side of our collective brain was engaged".

These pieces have a good deal of merit, even if they're lacking any sort context or concept  - the crashing percussion of tracks like Midnite Or So, buffeted by jazzy runs of electric keyboard, are reminiscent of the wilder experimentalism of Faust." (7/10*)

Tir Na Nog
· NEWLY REMASTERED EDITION OF THE CLASSIC 1971 DEBUT ALBUM BY IRISH PROGRESSIVE FOLK GROUP TIR NA NOG
· REMASTERED FROM THE ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES
· WITH TWO BONUS TRACKS
· BOOKLET WITH FULLY RESTORED ARTWORK & NEW ESSAY
Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce a new remastered edition of the classic 1971 debut album by TIR NA NOG. This legendary Progressive Folk duo featured the talents of LEO O’KELLY and SONNY CONDELL. Formed in Dublin in 1969, the duo travelled to London to make a name for themselves on the UK folk circuit, earning a contract with Chrysalis Records in 1970. Securing a support slot with Jethro Tull, TIR NA NOG came to the attention of a rock audience. The duo became a fixture on the concert circuit, opening for acts such as The Who, Elton John and Procol Harum and were also championed by John Peel. In 1971 their self-titled debut album was released to acclaim, thanks to the wonderfully diverse compositions and music featured. TIR NA NOG was one of the most original and inspiring acts of their era.
This Esoteric Recordings reissue has been newly remastered from the original CHRYSALIS RECORDS master tapes and features two bonus tracks drawn from the band’s first single and a booklet that fully restores all original album artwork with a new essay.

Happy The Man
· FIRST EVER UK RELEASE OF REMASTERED EDITION OF THE CLASSIC 1977 DEBUT ALBUM BY US PROGRESSIVE ROCK LEGENDS HAPPY THE MAN
· BOOKLET WITH FULLY RESTORED ARTWORK & NEW ESSAY
Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the first ever UK release of the classic 1977 self- titled debut album by American Progressive Rock group HAPPY THE MAN.
Formed in Harrisonburg, Virginia in 1973, the band was influenced by British progressive groups such as Genesis and King Crimson. By 1976 they came to the ear of PETER GABRIEL who considered utilising the band on his first solo album. Although this failed to materialise, the band came to the attention of Arista Records, securing a deal the same year. With a line-up of STANLEY WHITAKER (Guitars, Vocals), KIT WATKINS (Keyboards), FRANK WYATT (Sax, Flute, Keyboards), RICK KENNELL (Bass) and MIKE BECK (Drums), the band recorded their first album under the production supervision of KEN SCOTT (who had worked with Supertramp and David Bowie).
Featuring excellent pieces such as ‘Mr. Mirror’s Reflection on Dreams’ and ‘New York Dreams Suite’, the album ranks as one of the great American Progressive rock albums. This Esoteric Recordings reissue has been newly remastered and features a booklet that fully restores all original album artwork with a new essay.
