Sleazy twangy saxy surf from the dark side of the reverb tank. Pulling together all the E.P.'s on one album, Dark Magic marks the first phase of the Tribe's output.


SRW277 The Breakers - A Seahorse Of A Different Color (Jacket CD)


The Breakers return with a collection of 18 psych surf instrumentals, ranging from galloping garage stompers to more experimental and atmospheric cuts, this hypnotic release will get your synapses firing!

Includes contributions from adjunct band members Dan Klapman (Saxophone), Gary Kretchner (Trumpet), and guest collaborators Jeff Bond (Guitar), Neil Hansen (Bagpipes) and Craig Williams (Keyboards).

The album was recorded and produced by Craig Williams at Dr. CAW Recording, Chicago and features cover artwork by the legendary Mark “Topes” Thompson.


SRW264 Magnatech - Herr Magnatech bittet zum Tanz (Jacket CD)


Magnatech's 4th album provides you with an eclectic mix of stompers, ballads and twist tunes. From the Astronauts-like "Hecate" all the way to the sophisticated mid-tempo ballad "Blanche Monnier" you will embark on a journey that will lead you from the US to the UK, Netherlands, Germany, France and back to the Netherlands again all the while jumping to the beat but with a little time to breathe and cool down during the ballads, which invite you to slow dance or just enjoy the melody.

"Herr Magnatech bittet zum Tanz" is a collaboration with A Guy Who Owns An Organ and will keep you on the dancefloor whilst giving you also the chance to relax! We hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it!
