Vava Vol and Eisenlager - Half Truths/Halbe Wahrheiten Update 2018 - June 24 - 2018




Many thanks to Glasklinge for his intensely haunting work and to Studio 4632 for hosting our 2018 remix of "Half Truths/Halbe Wahrheiten". Do have a listen!

From Candy L: "Herewith another Vava Vol / Eisenlager collaboration album. This latest release is a re-release, done especially for Studio 4632. Previously released on Hortus Conclusus Records.

Half Truths is an abstract; an experimental, avant garde electronic collection. Several tracks are borderline noise genre, but within music. Overall an interesting mix with music and precision beats mingled in a cacaphony of sounds. Enjoy!"

The Pink Floyd and Syd Barrett Story (2001) - June 13, 2018



The late Syd Barrett was a major cult figure and rock music legend.  The charismatic and brilliant guitarist of the early Pink Floyd, he created a unique psychedelic sound and wrote wonderfully eccentric songs including the hits "Arnold Layne" and "See Emily Play", plus albums tracks like "Bike" and "Astronomy Domine".  Syd Barrett left Pink Floyd in 1968 when his increasingly erratic behavior made his continued participation in the band impossible, and after two extraordinary solo albums he disappeared from music altogether.   Pink Floyd went on to worldwide fame but the absent Syd remained painfully present in the music and lyrics most notably in the classic "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" from "Wish You Were Here".  “The Pink Floyd & Syd Barrett Story” tells the full bizarre, tragic but also celebratory story of Syd Barrett with contributions from all the members of Pink Floyd plus friends, managers and lovers. Bonus material includes extended interviews with Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Richard Wright, Nick Mason and Robyn Hitchcock. - Otmoor Productions Ltd. BBC  2001

Ties, Tracks and a Tunnel - June 1, 2018


A recent urbex reveals a stack of rotting railway ties, tracks leading into the blackness of a lone tunnel, graffiti stained concrete walls, an oddly walled off door and light at the end of it all.
