The Vampires of Dartmoore - Dracula's Music Cabinet (1969)

Hello everybody. It's been awhile since I've checked in with my blog. I've noticed a lot of comments about problems with Zshare links. So for those of you who have been requesting updated links or reposts, I'm working on that. Sorry to keep you waiting so long. I know how crappy it is when you search for something forever, and come across it only to find a dead link. So, I've been updating my posts with Mediafire links. I hope that works for you all. All the links that have been updated should read "NEW LINK!" in the title post. So thanks for everyone who's been downloading my mixes etc.. It's always nice to get some feed back.

Anyway, Enough business for now. I realized I haven't posted anything new in a while, so here is a record I hope you will enjoy (and don't already have). I got inspired to post it when I was reposting the Vampires Sound Incorporation record (Amazing!) Here is another Vampire themed German band that oddly came out the same year as the Vampires Sound Incorporation... 69 Erotic Year (sorry, I couldn't resist). I don't know much about them really, but I've read things here and there. Supposedly, they were one of those bands made up of all studio musicians and the album was intended to be a Soundtrack (but it never happened). At least that's what I've heard. Feel free to post some info in the comments if you know anything about it. Anyway, the music is pretty interesting actually. Similar to the Vampyros Lesbos sound, but more of a lo-fi Sven Libaek thing happening. All the tracks are pretty psychedelic with lots of overdubbed sound effects for an over all more dramatic horror/halloween type of vibe. I still think it sort of belongs in the realm of the mondo cocktail cinema grooves type of stuff though (rather than spooky holiday records). Check it out, it's pretty entertaining and has an unusual sound quality. 192 Kbps. Just over a half hour...

Enjoy your horror TRIP!

NEW LINK! VA - "Psych-Out" (A Full Spectrum Trip Compiled By The Cowboys From Sweden)

Pretty self explanatory... An new compilation put together by the Cowboys from Sweden. This one emphasizes mostly on break beats, psychedelic atmospheres and dramatic themes from films and library records (mostly Italian with the exception of a few tracks). I guess this one was sort of inspired by our recent record spinning sets at local Portland bars, at least it's somewhat reflective of our (Robbie and myself) live sets... Not much more I can say about it. It's all pretty up-beat and funky and would make a great party soundtrack. I actually went through the trouble to make a front and back cover for those of you who are into this kind of stuff... Dig in!

Alessandro Alessandroni & Nora Orlandi - Music For Strange Situations (2003)

Here is some crazy stuff by soundtrack gurus Alessandro Alessandroni & Nora Orlandi. The title of this comp definitely fits the sound. Alessandroni is best know for his whistling work with Ennio Morricone, but apparently he has made around 50 soundtracks and other albums himself. Alessandroni is a fuzztone guitar virtuoso, and many of his psychedelic moods can be found here on this album. The tracks alter between the two Italian composers throughout the mix and take us deep into strange moods, psychedelic atmospheres, cocktail party jams and eerie choir arrangements. There isn't really any filler on this disc if you ask me, both of these composers are very edgy and keep things fresh and spooky. Happy listening!!

1. Spiagge Azzurre (Alessandro Alessandroni)
2. The Bondage Suite # 4 (Orlandi/Ormi)
3. Cielo Verde (Alessandro Alessandroni)
4. Vocalisation (Alessandro Alessandroni)
5. The Bondage Suite # 2 (Orlandi/Ormi)
6. Aliante Giallo (2a Versione) (Alessandro Alessandroni)

Vincent Gallo - Live At Royal Festival Hall, April 5th, 2004

This is probably the best sounding live recording I have heard of a Vincent Gallo Show. The recording has a nice mellow vibe throughout the duration of the 12 songs. Pretty low key and jazzy most of the time except for tracks three and ten where the band jams for a while (which is cool to hear). To my knowledge, track 11 entitled "You Sure Are" is exclusive to this recording. I haven't heard any other versions of it out there yet. There are also two covers on this one; "Moonchild" by King Crimson and Henry Mancini's "Moonriver" from Breakfast at Tiffany's which features PJ Harvey on Vocals and John Frusciante on Guitar for the final song of the show.

02 Yes I'm Lonely

NEW LINK! The Vampires' Sound Incorporation - Psychedelic Dance Party (1969)

Now here is a strange record put out on the Mercury Label in 1969 by two German Composers, Manfred Hübler and Siegfried Schwab. Although this album wasn't technically a soundtrack, the music was used in the Jess Franco film "Vampyros Lesbos" (which I understand was quite terrible). The music is pretty over the top psychedelic cocktail jazz/funk with a vampiric theme, kind of hokey, but none the less fun to listen to... Track three seems to be a spoof on the Rolling Stones song "Satisfaction". This would make a great soundtrack for a cocktail party, and a good edition to your eurotrash library...

Sunday, February 10, 2008


Recorded at home in Portland, Oregon on 4 track cassette tape during the winter of 2006 and early 2007. Deep melodic textural drones; soothing background listening. Released by EED (R.I.P. 2004-2009) on May 26th, 2007. Now available from Wil-Ru Records.

"Eric Adrian Lee is somewhat of an underground gem in the musical and artistic world, having many different bands and projects as well as establishing himself as an excellent visual artist. On Biathalon 2, Eric paints us beautiful sonic pictures of long billowing clouds covering a silent sea of white noise. Unfamiliar melodies in familiar keys creep into the scene on an old broken two-way radio, the weather subtly changes. Biathalon 2 is a vibrant portrayal of colors and landscapes that you can get completely lost in."

Track Listing:
1. Warm Front
2. Neumayer Station
3. Cloud Formations
4. Program Information (featuring Cup Na Cup)
5. Underwater Is A Place To Be Alone


Warm Front was featured on the "Terrain To Roam" mix by DJ Sven Swift. You can download that mix and many others free at Mixotic (a net label for dj mixes).

Incase you were wondering who are The Cowboys From Sweden? Well, I believe that we are the only Lee Hazlewood cover band in the world (to my knowledge). ...And if you aren't already familiar with Lee Hazlewood, Well, I would recommend his 1970 album "Cowboy in Sweden" (from where we got our name) to start with. The Cowboys From Sweden are Robbie Augspurger and Eric Lee along with some occasional help from Eric Dexter and Ellen Werner. I plan to post our recordings here soon, in the mean time you can download individual tracks from or virb page ( Keep your eyes open for our version of "Leather & Lace" coming soon.

Serge Gainsbourg - Cannabis (1969)

This is the score to Pierre Koralnik's 1969 film Cannabis. The film was titled "French Intrigue" (also "The Mafia Wants Your Blood") for the US release. Not only did Serge Gainsbourg compose the soundtrack (in collaboration with Jean-Claude Vannier), he also starred in the film with his wife Jane Birkin. This is one of my favorite of Gainsbourg's soundtracks, full of amazing grooves, break-beat drums, harpsichord, huge guitar riffs and funky bass lines. The film it's self was pretty slow and kind of corny actually, but worth it to see Serge shooting up gangsters with a tommy gun in an enormous chicken coop. The music is much better than the film. It's definitely worth the download....

Also, this 2003 reissue includes the soundtrack to the 1967 film "Ce Sacre Grand-Pere" or "The marriage came tumbling down" which Gainsbourg co-wrote with Michel Colombier. I haven't seen this film, so I won't try and fake my way through a review. Musically however, the soundtrack is not as funky as Cannabis, but has some very nice moments and some dark and pretty instrumentals. A bit more orchestral, but still has the Gainsbourg touch. Beautiful.

Don George - Mr. Romance (2004)

Awesome... This is singer/actor Don George's album "Mr. Romance". Don George happens to be my band mate Robbie Augspurger's grandfather and all around good guy. This is a karaoke album Mr. George cut back in 2004 at a professional recording studio. The songs are mostly covers of Sinatra, Ray Charles, stuff like that. Stuff he likes to sing. Don had a cold when he recorded this, so he claims that it's not his best work, but it sure has a lot of character... He also claims that he is a 9000 year old dracula. Just kidding, that's not true, I made that part up. The music is Don's voice backed by expensive midis. Not sure there is anything else I can say about it. Cool, I'm glad I posted this.

1. Stranger In The Night
2. I've Got You Under My Skin

Metal - The Silent World (2007)

"The Silent World" was recorded at the Artistery in Portland, Oregon between 2006 and 2007. The title is a reference to Jacques Cousteau's 1956 award winning nature documentary film "Le Monde Du Silence" (The Silent World). This album also features audio samples of dialog from the film. This is a limited edition CDR release. I believe there were less than copies 100 made. Melodic ambient drones, lonesome guitars, oceanside field recordings and deep textures to get lost in. Not to mention a story on the title track. Enjoy.

Weird covers, worse music...

Here are a couple covers of albums that I have recently been given or found at thrift stores. My favorite is Live a Happy "LIFE" by the Baxter family. I can't believe that one slipped past the editor. Then there is Gerald Barkey, The Singing Policeman (You got to love floating head covers), Wizard at the console, the Bionic Woman tearing a car door from it's hinges and a photo of Benji looking tropical from the back of a Benji story album. Somebody get that dog some sunglasses....

Ps. I was too lazy to upload any tracks, but it's probably for the best anyways...
