    Tipographica ~ 1993 ~ Tipographica

    ProgArchives:
    Of all the new bands that have emerged from Japan's bourgeoning underground progressive scene TIPOGRAPHICA have got to be right at the top along with HAPPY FAMILY. They are definitely in the RIO vein with noticeable shades of early HENRY COW, PICCHIO DAL POZZO and HATFIELD & THE NORTH, (free) jazz and instrumental/classical ZAPPA ("Hot Rats", "Waka Jawaka", "The Grand Wazoo", "Studio Tan", etc.). All of the musicians are nimble, adept, and have extremely proficient control over their instruments. Blazing guitar, honking sax - super tight arrangements - brilliant muscianship. If you love mid-70's Frank ZAPPA this band will blow your mind.
    TIPOGRAPHICA existed from 1986 until 1998 and who released four albums in the 90s. They play completely instrumental music, basically a rhythmically complex type of jazz-rock. If you like melodic symphonic rock or neo-prog, you probably won't like their music. RIO freaks, jazz or jazz-rock lovers, and fans of ZAPPA or complex music in general definitely should try one of their albums. Any of their four albums is a good place to start. Well, if you like exploring the progressive music, sooner or later you'll have to meet them and acquire their Canterbury inspired New Music. ESSENTIAL!!!

    Plainsong ~ 1972 ~ In Search Of Amelia Earhart
    genre: country, folk
    country: uk
    quality: lossless (ape, cue, log, scans)
    time: 39'52" size: 215 mb
     
    Wiki:
    Plainsong was originally a British country rock/folk rock band, formed in early 1972 by Ian (later Iain) Matthews, formerly of Fairport Convention; Andy Roberts, previously of The Liverpool Scene; Dave Richards; and Bob Ronga. The original group split up before the end of 1972 but, since the early 1990s, Matthews and Roberts intermittently performed and recorded together, with other musicians, as Plainsong.
    The album was critically well-received but was not a commercial success. The group toured extensively with drummer Roger Swallow and began recording a second album, but Matthews and Richards disagreed on the direction the album should take, Ronga left before the sessions were completed, and the band broke up. Matthews and Roberts each then began recording again as solo artists.
    Working with producer Sandy Roberton (Hard Meat, Steeleye Span, Shirley Collins), Ian and bandmates, notably Andy Roberts who shared vocals on the album, created an atypical British folk album conceived around the idea of the legends surrounding Amelia Earhart and her supposed demise.
    Matthews had read a book by Fred Goerner hypothesizing that Earhart and her flying companion Frederick Noonan had crashed around the Japanese held Marshall Island area and been taken prisoner by the Japanese on Saipan, in the Marianas, in 1937. Their plane had supposedly been outfitted with aerial cameras and had a bigger fuel tank than anyone outside of the US government knew. After being grilled by Japanese interrogators Earhart would perish of dysentery, and Noonan was beheaded by the Japanese.

    Tapestry of Delights:
    This political underground band played at the "Oz Police Ball" benefit for the Oz obscenity trial with Arthur Brown, Viv Stanshall, Pink Fairies, Egg, Roy Harper and Gnidrolog, but this group was different. They were singing about the rebels, the poor and uneducated people: the working class, the semi-skilled labourers, the yobos and the Hell's Angels. They were able to write excellent, sensitive melodies but in general their music and lyrics were ugly and real - like life itself. No punk band seven years later would have dared sing lyrics like:
    "Let's free the working class
    We're tired of licking the government's arse
    We're tired of kissing the Monarch's arse
    Letting its bad air out".
    (from M.I.5's Alive)
    or
    "Get your arse down to Hammersmith town
    Join the urban guerrillas
    Take up arms against the crown
    .... Don't talk about the wrong and right
    Get out and fight."
    (from Hammersmith Guerrilla).

    Tai Phong ~ 1975 ~ Tai Phong
    genre: prog
    country: france
    quality: lossless (flac, cue, log, scans)
    time: 50'20"  size: 331 mb

    Scented Gardens of Mind:
    Tai Phong were merchants of archetypical late 70's symphonic rock, following on the heels of Barclay James Harvest and Yes. Some will find their three albums too full of Yes clichйs, others might dislike the strained vocal yells, but others will enjoy the rich melodic content. What I miss is some personality and distance from the British symphonic rock scene. As reflected by their name, Tai Phong were based around two Japanese immigrants.

    Twink ~ 1999 ~ The Lost Experimental Recordings 1970
    genre: psych
    country: uk
    quality: lossless (ape, cue, log, cover)
    time: 52'54" size: 355 mb
     
    Tapestry of Delights:
    By 1967, Alder assumed the name Twink and resurfaced in Tomorrow. He was then involved in The Pretty Things, playing on their S.F. Sorrow album in 1968, but by 1969 he'd left them too to form an early Pink Fairies line-up with Mick Farren and Steve Peregrine-Took (from Tyrannosaurus Rex). He'd also recorded solo album "Twink Pink" with assistance from several musicians, including Took and various members of The DeviantsTwink sings as well as drums on the album, which is a mixture of his own songs (including some instrumentals) and poems. It is a very significant disc in the wilderness of British psychedelia. Its highlights included the opening cut, The Coming Of The Other One, with its Eastern-sounding gongs, bongos, sitars, backward tapes and sighs and screams; The Sparrow Is The Sign and Thousand Words In A Cardboard Box. It wasn't actually released until 1970, though. It is now very collectable but some copies were pressed on red vinyl and these are now ultra-rare. In 1970, Twink also formed Pink Fairies as a more stable unit with Mick Farren, but by mid-1971 Twink had left the group and shortly afterwards left the country too.
    In 1972, he formed an outfit called Stars with Syd Barrett and bassist Jack Monk (ex-Delivery). They only lasted for half a gig before Barrett wandered off the stage - indeed, they must be a contender for one of the shortest-lived bands in history. Having married in 1974, Twink returned to the music scene in the late seventies...

    "... The album, simply titled Doris Troy, featured some of that era's biggest stars: Eric Clapton, Delaney & Bonnie, Peter Frampton, Leon Russell, and the Beatles' Harrison and Starr. The fusion of soul and rock should have been a star-making relaunch of her career, but during the Beatle's messy public breakup, their record label withered for want of attention."

    Jefferson Airplane ~ 1969 ~ Bless Its Pointed Little Head
    genre: psych

    quality: lossless (flac, cue, log, scans)
    time: 1:05'32" size: 407 mb
    misc.: live
     
    PsychedelicShark :
    The words "It wasn’t the Airplane, It Was Beauty Killed the Beast” will be eternally etched on my mind after countless listenings to this album. These are the closing lines of the film ‘King Kong’ and the opening to this album. The fans at the Fillmore West (mainly, I suspect) and East (possibly) were treated to a film show before the band came on stage. They used to do things differently in those days. The cover picture of a comatose Jack Cassady completes the image. This band wanted to blast you with the impact of their live show and this album did it comprehensively.
    The Airplane are at the height of their performance capability on this one. It’s a live album featuring  a high octane ‘Somebody to Love’, and ‘Plastic Fantastic Lover', ‘The Other Side of This Life’ (from the first album and a classic by Fred Neil) and The Fat Angel – a tribute to the band written by Donovan. This latter track has two superb solos by Kaukonen. This is rock par excellence performed by a band when they were really on song. ‘Turn Down the Lights’ is just the band complaining about the fact that the ‘house’ lights are on and detracting from the light show, but it does give a brilliant sense of how the band empathised with the audience and Kantner’s threat of ‘we’ll send Owsley to get you’ reminds you of the roots of psychedelic mayhem. 
    The final track is ‘Bear Melt', an 11-minute epic in which Grace sings ‘It feels pretty good when somebody gives it to you'. What could THAT be about?

    Manuel Rigoni and Richard Schönherz ~ 1975 - Victor: A Symphonic Poem
    genre: sympho prog
    country: austria
    quality: lossless (flac, cue, log, scans)
    time: 1:14'45" size: 424 mb

    progarchives:
    Before Richard Schöenherz (born 1947) became known for working in bands such as Dawn and Einstein, he and Manuel Rigoni created the concept album 'Victor'. It is viewed by many as a lost classic of progressive rock, as it balances between orchestrated and sophisticated rock in a unique manner. As well as Richard providing keyboards and lead vocals, and Manuel providing drums and percussion, they combined Kurt Hauenstein (Supermax), Harry Stojka, Achim Buchstab, Johan Daansers and Peter Wolf along with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and the Vienna Academy Chamber Choir. 
    'Victor' is a symphonic tour de force about the power of youth and a plea for deference to authority, war and cruelty. It is centred around a young man and his upbringing in a circus and his thoughts and rebellion, of sorts, against the adult conception of life and what one is supposed to with it. Partly recorded and mixed in the legendary Abbey Road Studios, 'Victor' is still a timeless work that is worth exploring.
