Cardinal Fuzz and Feeding Tube Records are proud to introduce the debut solo LP from Alison Cotton titled “All Is Quiet At The Ancient Theatre”.
Alison Cotton may be best known as one half of The Left Outsides as well as been a name to be found on many of the finest folk/drone/experimental contemporary recording artists releases too via her sonorous Viola playing. So both Cardinal Fuzz and Feeding Tube Records (U.S.A.) can bring to you via the medium of Vinyl, Alison Cotton’s debut release – “All Is Quiet At The Ancient Theatre” (after 3 sold out runs via Bloxham Tapes). Over 35 minutes Alison Cotton casts you into the most cathartic of states via droning viola, recorders and lilting Gregorian vocal sighs. While it would be easy to classify this as folk music, Alison has created something that feels like music for the soul as she takes to the stage at the Ancient Theatre. Rich sound break the stillness. Drone dreams seep through sepia photographs. We are delighted to present another side of her work. Out of time. Timeless. All is quiet in the ancient theatre of eternal music.

Shooting Guns – Live Nosferatu Score (2xLP Gatefold Jacket)
Cardinal Fuzz and Pre-Rock Records are proud to introduce Shooting Guns – Nosferatu Live Score.
Like the master sales people we are at Cardinal Fuzz as just in time for October 31st we bring you the perfect Halloween treat – The Shooting Guns Live Nosferatu Score. Captured live at the Roxy Theatre (Saskatoon) where psych renegades The Shooting Guns create the perfect doomy apocalyptic soundtrack for F.W. Murnau’s cinematic classic. Over 70 minutes The Shooting Guns ramp up the dread and tension that perfectly matches Nosferatu’s gothic aesthetic. Haunting melodies chill the hairs on your neck until Count Orlok appears and they let loose a maelstrom of throbbing Wagnerian bummer riffs. Give yourself 70 minutes a darkened room and a spare pair of pants to absorb this masterpiece.

Cardinal Fuzz and Feeding Tube Records are proud to introduce Trimdon Grange Explosion and their debut Self Titled Long Player. Trimdon Grange Explosion are an psych folk ensemble from North-East London Comprising Alison Cotton (viola/vocals), Ben Phillipson (guitar/vocals), Mark Nicholas (bass) and Karl Sabino (drums), the quartet formed in the aftermath of the split of acclaimed folk-rock outfit THE EIGHTEENTH DAY OF MAY of whom all four were members.
In 2010 a 7” emerged on The Great Pop Supplement – a cover of Judy Henske & Jerry Yester’s ‘Raider’ b/w ‘The Trimdon Grange Explosion’ – and then after a further seven year gap, their debut album release saw the light of day, initially as a limited-edition CD-R box package on the Borley Rectory label in Spring of 2017. We are delighted to finally release this acid psych shindig on vinyl, Remastered by Chris Hardman and with hallucinatory artwork by Peckham-based illustrator LUKE DROZD. The self-produced recordings of TRIMDON GRANGE EXPLOSION’s eponymous set took place during 2015-2016 in various North London locations. The 9 eclectic tracks (plus one bonus track on the download too) range from original compositions to acid-tinged group instrumentals to songs from the folk tradition, arranged for electric instruments. TRIMDON GRANGE EXPLOSION is a grand continuation of its previous incarnation’s psychedelic fusion of the modal rock of The Velvet Underground – among others – with their own English traditional music roots. Evidently, there was unfinished business.
