The Electronic Saviors Compilation

All things end. The first Electronic Saviors comp landed in 2010 on Metropolis Records and every two years since, the industrial music community has come together to stand against cancer.

The Electronic Saviors compilation series began as an idea in 2008 when scene promoter, DJ and musician Jim Semonik was diagnosed with stage 2B colorectal cancer.

What started out as an idea during radiation treatments blossomed into a musical project unparallelled in scene history.

ES has since raised and donated in excess of 75K for various charities including Cap For Kids, Bone Marrow Foundation, Gilda’s Club, Our Clubhouse,  Foundation For Cancer Research and Wellness, Darkest Before Dawn, The University of Pittsburgh Medical School and various GoFundMe campaigns.

In 2019, Jim was awarded the ASCRS (American Society of ColoRectal Surgeons) local hero award and was knighted in Chicago at the Coldwaves festival. Since then, he has focused on what lies ahead, Electronic Saviors Vol 6:Reflection. The new volume is a look back and celebration of the many accomplishments that ES has garnered. It is a chance to stare down cancer one more time. For the final boxset in this series, Semonik is joined my top scene greats such as Lead Into Gold (Paul Barker), Marc Heal with Chris Connelly, NOIR, Christ Analogue, Fires, Adoration Destroyed, Caustic, Null Device and many, many others. This compilation is special as it holds brand new material by artists like Flesh Field and 13mg who haven’t been active in many years as well as final recordings by bands such as Tenek.

ES6 is the farewell to a beloved series of compilations that changed lives. We laughed, cried, screamed and shouted together. Now it’s time for one last go. Electronic Saviors will continue on in the future with projects like the spin off Respect the Prime and Synthcore Dreams series so it isn’t a complete goodbye. The ES name will live on in many other forms and contine to save and change lives as we always have.

Electronic Saviors 6 will come in 3 forms:

Digital: 4 disc edition available through Metropolis Records

Physical: 6 disc Premium Edition available through Distortion Productions and includes the 6CD set in a gorgeous DVD style digipak with artwork by Jeff Confer and Samantha Johnson, a bumper sticker, wristband, a personalized autographed postcard and a Distortion Productions Postcard.

October releases from Fruits de Mer Records – including The Electric Prunes, The Pretty Things and The Yardbirds


1966-1968 : arguably the golden era for music. ‘The Three Seasons‘ is a bit of a tribute to the psychedelic era – the first buds forming in ’66, the summer of love and the comedown in ’68.

Some of Fruits de Mer‘s best-known artists are joined by some new faces and a few who were actually there at the time and were personally responsible for some of the amazing sounds that we’re celebrating in this vinyl love-in.

The Three Seasons has taken rather a long time to grow into the 3 LP set that will be presented for your consideration in early October – although, in the end, some heavy pruning was necessary to fit everything onto six sides (it could so easily have been a 4LP set, but someone had already knicked the ‘four seasons’ title).

The music ranges from pop-psych to acid-folk, heavy rock to prog, from classic songs to the long-lost – the kind of thing Fruits de Mer was designed for.

So, who is responsible for the two hours+ of music between the grooves? Step forward:

side 1

  1. The Past Tense – Magic In The Air (originally by The Attack : recorded in 1967)
  2. LoveyDove – Bedazzled (originally by Drimble Wedge and the Vegetations : 1967)
  3. Campbell Stokes Sunshine Recorder – Amelia Jane (originally by Made In Sheffield : 1967)
  4. Jack Ellister – Aquarius (originally by The Zodiac:Cosmic Sounds : 1967)
  5. Rob Gould – Granny Takes A Trip (originally by The Purple Gang : 1967)

side 2

  1. Mark McDowell and Friends – Up The Wooden Hills To Bedfordshire (originally by The Small Faces : 1966)
  2. Anton Barbeau – Sunshine Superman (originally by Donovan : 1965)
  3. The Electric Prunes – 7 and 7 is (originally by Love : 1966)
  4. Moonweevil – Child Of The Sky (originally by The Deviants : 1967)
  5. Kris Gietkowski – A-Minor Explosion (originally by Don Shinn : 1966)
  6. The Yardbirds – Think About It (live in 2016) (originally by The Yardbirds : 1968)

side 3

  1. The Locker Room Cowboys – We Love You (originally by The Rolling Stones : 1967)
  2. King Penguin – White Bird (written : 1967, released by It’s A Beautiful Day : 1969)
  3. Aunt Cynthia’s Cabin – Solitary Man (originally by Neil Diamond : 1966)
  4. The Luck Of Eden Hall – Reflected (originally by Alice Cooper : 1968)

side 4

  1. The Honey Pot – Kites (written by Hackaday/Pockriss; recorded by The Rooftop Singers / Simon Dupree and the Big Sound : 1967)
  2. Cary Grace – 1983 (A Merman I Should Be…) (originally by the Jimi Hendrix Experience : 1968)

side 5

  1. Sidewalk Society – A Saying For Today (originally by The Action : 1968)
  2. Jay Tausig – Let No Man Steal Your Thyme (trad. recorded by Anne Briggs : 1963 / Pentangle : 1968)
  3. Magic Bus – Tribal Gathering (originally by The Byrds : 1967)
  4. Proud Peasant – Down At Circe’s Place (originally by Touch : 1968)
  5. Icarus Peel – Beck’s Bolero (originally by Jeff Beck Group : 1966)

side 6

  1. The Green Ray – Dusty (originally by John Martyn : 1968)
  2. Ex-Norwegian – Winter (originally by Family : 1968)
  3. Consterdine – Fly (originally by J.K. & Co : 1968)
  4. The Gold Needles – The Smell of Incense (originally by West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band : 1967)
  5. The Pretty Things – Loneliest Person (live at the Half Moon, 2010) (originally by The Pretty Things : 1968)

The other new vinyl release comes from Kris Gietkowski, who created the wonderfully-mad solo instrumental version of Egg‘s first album last year from FdM. He’s back and it’s as if Egg have never been away – on ‘Symmetric Communication‘, he moves onto their second album with a cover of ‘A Visit To Newport Hospital‘ and then creates two new compositions that are heavily influenced by the band – again it’s all instrumental and the work of one man – and I think it’s damn good (he said modestly).


Goldfish: 10 Years of Fruits de Mer Records (Fruits de Mer Records, 30 April 2018)

As a kid I used to turn on the radio, lie down, close my eyes and lose myself to the sounds of music…

It happened again the other day when I started listening to the compilation “Goldfish: 10 years of Fruits de Mer Records”.

Fruits de Mer is an indie record label from Surrey, UK specializing on psychedelia, progressive rock, acid-folk, krautrock and spacerock riding on the back of the vinyl revival, even if there wasn’t one when they started out back in 2008…

In Keith’s own words:

Established way back in 1715 (that’s a quarter past five in the evening) by Andy and Keith, we started out with the carefully laid-out plan to unearth and reissue long-lost, classic tracks from the sixties and early seventies – but the record companies with the rights to the back-catalogues simply didn’t want to know us. After several weeks of crying into our beer, we thought, “sod it, we’ll do it ourselves”…and we have. Andy decided it was time to do something different a few years ago, so FdM now consists of me (Keith) and whoever else I can rope in, usually my lovely missus, Liz.
FdM releases are a right old mix of classic and obscure tracks, reinterpreted by artists who love them, respect them but want to breathe new life into them…and new songs by bands that have their roots in the 60s/70s.
Go on, put on your diving gear, join the Fruits de Mer deep-sea fishing trip as we dredge up whoppers by the likes of The Small Faces, Nick Drake, Can, HP Lovecraft, The Moody Blues, Egg, Arthur Brown and Strawberry Alarm Clock…even little-known names such as The Beatles, Pink Floyd and Miles Davis get a look-in with us. Then we let new or cult artists such as The Bevis Frond, Soft Hearted Scientists, nick nicely, The Chemistry Set, Cranium Pie, Tir na nOg, Vibravoid and the mighty Pretty Things get to work in making the tracks their own. Running a vinyl record label is a sure-fire way of losing money but I’m in it for the love of it and, if you’ve read this far, you probably are too – you can find out more about FdM at call in for a cuppa, drop me a line any time.
In the words of Schizo Fun Addict, who put together our first single, “Be brave…and keep faith”.

Every Fruits De Mer Records release is limited and all on colour vinyl…

The catalogue numbers of this 3LP set and the bonus 7” single that comes with it (and they call “the little goldfish”) are crustacean 84 and 85 so as you realize these people managed to put a lot of releases out there…

“Goldfish: 10 years of Fruits de Mer Records” comes with tracks from The Pretty Things, nick nicely, Tir n nOg, The Chemistry Set, Stay , Beautify Junkyards, Cranium Pie, Astralasia, Sendelica, Vibravoid, Superfjord, Soft Hearted Scientists, The Honey Pot and a whole lot of other artists who really should have known better…

Goldfish focuses mainly on what Fruits de Mer originally set out to deliver – classic and willfully-obscure songs taken from, or heavily influenced by the 60s and early 70s…

Various – Rock Back For Nepal (Volumes 1, 2, 3)

rock back for nepal

Global Indie Artists Come Together for Nepal Disaster Relief Series

Rock Back for Nepal is the first in a 3-part series of disaster relief compilations being released by U.S. indie label Patetico Recordings. The label is partnering with nearly 60 independent artists and several small indie labels around the globe to make this happen. They have all come together in order to raise funds for victims of the recent catastrophic earthquakes in Nepal. All money raised will go directly to the relief efforts.

The compilations are being supported by several luminaries of the independent rock and shoegaze scene, among others. “Whenever Tom Lugo reaches out to his musical family, you know it’s for a crucial and essential cause. The Rock Back for Nepal CD compilation is no exception,” explains Dean Garcia of seminal shoegaze bands Curve and SPC ECO. “I’m proud to be part of this relief effort / fund raiser for anyone affected by the recent earthquake disaster in Nepal and if I can help or contribute in some way to aid support and assistance to the many displaced people, I will without question. Please support this cause and donate as generously as you can.”

Perhaps one of the most renowned personalities in the shoegaze / noise rock spheres, Oliver Ackermann (A Place To Bury Strangers, Skywave) has also lent his support to the cause. “It is a horrible tragedy this destruction of culture and life. I feel lucky that I can use my craft and contribute a song to this fund to help them raise money for relief. If we can all do something to help and give relief for the people of Nepal we should do it now.”

It’s great to be among this sparkling array of brilliant artists, taking action in support of a great cause,” says Marc Joy of Welsh outfit Lights That Change. Alexx Kretov of Canadian-Ukrainian duo Ummagma is also hopeful.”May the common freebie attitude fall to the wayside for this project. We really hope that people will support a higher cause by spending a few dollars and spreading this music far and wide.”

All three volumes are being released at the same time, and will be available through Bandcamp and exclusively, both digitally and on CD.The album artwork and design is by Gardy Perez.

The concept of the Rock Back compilation series was born in 2011 when disaster hit Japan and Tom Lugo, owner of Patetico Recordings, acted on his empathy for charitable causes and non-profit organizations by reaching out to the community of artists in his network. They collectively put together a compilation and the profits were donated to relief efforts. The response was overwhelming, with over 100 artists from across the globe joining in the efforts. What was to be a single CD compilation grew into the 8-disc compilation Rock Back for Japan. The compilation series hit the top 10 Indie Rock releases on’s chart for several weeks, with certain volumes holding the number 1 spot.

VOLUME 1 features
SPC ECO (UK), A Place to Bury Strangers (USA), Ummagma (Canada-Ukraine), Lights That Change (UK), Sounds of Sputnik (Russia), Stellarscope (USA), The Manhattan Love Suicides (UK), Clustersun (Italy), The One2s (USA), Panophonic (USA), Death Valley Rally (USA), The Virgance (UK), Purple Bloom (Japan), Arirang (Italy), The Artificial Shadow Band (Puerto Rico), Kitsch (Panama), and Revolution, I love you (USA)

Mike Pougounas – Discography

Earlier today I decided to take a stroll through Facebook.  It’s Monday, after all, and after a hectic weekend I felt a little rest and relaxation were in order.  

But what I stumbled across left me feeling breathless for there is someone who most certainly didn’t take too much time off during the past three decades of music.
