2008's compilation of Wooden Shjips desparate rarities.
This release brings together a collection of long deleted vinyl only sides from San Francisco's Wooden Shjips. The Wooden Shjips' earliest material was released on vinyl, pressed in small quantities that were either free or hard to come by and are now hopelessly out of print. So, The Shjips do the honourable thing and let everyone get their mitts on 'the early stuff', and limited singles, for those of you who missed the original vinyl (and that isn't surprising if you did).
The Shjips are very happy to be able to provide you with the rush of "Shrinking Moon for You", 8 plus minutes of groovy guitar head melt. Followed up by "Death's Not Your Friend" which is a bit looser round the edges, a touch of strung out, fractured, acid soaked psyche. "Space Clothes" is third up, laying down some very oddball spoken word (backwards) over oscillating guitar feedback and ambient weirdness. Onto "Clouds Over Earthquake" the total classic sludge-fest from the 'Dance California 7"'. And after that is what is no doubt their best single, the aforementioned "Dance California" with guitars tuned up and effected to sound like bloody bagpipes, this wall of sonic mind f*ck is relentless in groove and attack. Last up is "Sol 07" which was a limited Holy Mountain release split over two sides, here laid out in all it's wasted funky grooviness, to a nice 11 and a half minutes. Godlike.
