Pink Floyd - Flaming (by Syd Barrett)

Alone in the clouds all blue 
Lying on an eiderdown. 
Yippee! You can’t see me 
But I can you. 

Lazing in the foggy dew 
Sitting on a unicorn. 
No fair, you can’t hear me 
But I can you. 

Watching buttercups cup the light 
Sleeping on a dandelion. 
Too much, I won’t touch you 
But then I might. 

Screaming through the starlit sky 
Traveling by telephone. 
Hey ho, here we go 
Ever so high. 

Alone in the clouds all blue 
Lying on an eiderdown. 
Yippee! You can’t see me 
But I can you.

Pink Floyd - Chapter 24 (1967)

A movement is accomplished in six stages 
And the seventh brings return. 
The seven is the number of the young light 
It forms when darkness is increased by one. 
Change returns success 
Going and coming without error. 
Action brings good fortune. 
Sunset. 

The time is with the month of winter solstice 
When the change is due to come. 
Thunder in the other course of heaven. 
Things cannot be destroyed once and for all. 
Change returns success 
Going and coming without error. 
Action brings good fortune. 
Sunset, sunrise. 

A movement is accomplished in six stages 
And the seventh brings return. 
The seven is the number of the young light 
It forms when darkness is increased by one. 
Change returns success 
Going and coming without error. 
Action brings good fortune. 
Sunset, sunrise.

Part Time Punks - Television Personalities (1978)

1978 was a good year. I was born in East Germany. After the break of Berlin wall and the whole shit I was able to explore punk rock. I dig into DIY scene, fanzines, obscure tape and 7” releases, mostly early (East) German Punkrock from the eighties.

I never felt connected to the alcoholic losers with colored hair who called them self punks. Maybe I was a part time punk, but I don’t think so…

Nick Drake - Cello Song
Edited and Produced by Eel Pie’s Nick Kennerley for broadcast on Vintage TV. It’s one of those songs that evokes great memories. Nick Drake was at Cambridge University when he wrote Five Leaves Left, the album from which “Cello Song” comes. He had lost his schoolboy interest in sport (he had been an accomplished sprinter) and preferred to stay in his college room smoking marijuana, and listening to and playing music - hence the footage of Cambridge in the late 60s. The rest of the footage reflects what was happening around the same time including the legalise pot demos and the 1969 Isle Of Wight pop festival that could so easily have been a showcase for Nick’s talents, had he been less reluctant to perform live. Sadly after only three albums, at the tender age of 26, Nick died from an overdose of antidepressants. His melancholic style has grown in popularity hugely in recent years, and now he is a much bigger star than he ever was in his lifetime.

Free Improvisation Series: Georges Gurdjieff

So what makes an improvisation a free one? Does a truly free improvisation require that one create new combinations of notes every time? New timbres? New instruments? What is the improvisation free from? Composition? What is composition? Are Fluxus pieces “compositions”? Does realization of these “compositions” require improvisation? If you’re improvising within the context of a composition, are you really improvising? Are you really free?

All Recordings on archive.org or as an album

Stunningly beautiful harmonium improvisations recorded in 1949 by spiritualist G.I GURDJIEFF. Many who heard these performances live, found themselves crying uncontrollably. After this cathartic listening experience they reached a place where they felt happy & whole. We hope this record can bring a similar experience to the modern day listener. It doesn’t get much more pure than this. Cover is silkscreened with gold ink. A co-release with Psychic Sounds Research.
