Find of the Year: Original CCMC LPs Discovered

Last winter we contacted Jonny Dovercourt from the estimable Music Gallery in Toronto about reissuing LPs they released in the 70’s under the Music Gallery Editions (MGE) imprint. Jonny was very enthusiastic about the idea and we agreed that the best place to start would be with the CCMC LPs which are both incredible and criminally unavailable. On our behalf he started contacting the members of CCMC to gather blessings for the project and to locate the master tapes. Not only did we receive enthusiastic approval, but Michael Snow took us by complete surprise and asked us if we’d be interested in distributing the boxes of original CCMC LPs that had been sitting in his basement for over 30 years. It was hard to believe – these LPs had been on our ‘want-lists’ for ages and the prospect of even coming across one copy of these LPs seemed bleak, and suddenly we ended up with boxes full of these historical monsters, fresh as the day they came off the factory line.

 

AND now we have the pleasure and great honor of sharing these masterpieces with the world!

Culling from several of these releases between 2006 and 2010, all […]

    Named after the Brian De Palma film about the intimacy and invasive nature of sound recording (in his case a metaphor for filmmaking), this EP finds Toronto’s VOWLS eavesdropping on Pop music. The a-side Burlap swaggers around a drum machine beat that sounds like a New Order 45 played at 33rpm, with thick psychedelic layers […]

  • VOWLS Plays Monterey Pop (Remastered)
    March 25, 2011 | 11:27 am

      About the Film Inspired by Ron Hardy’s disco re-edits, Michael Marranda’s revised literary texts and Richard Prince’s appropriated photographs, this video is composed entirely from footage taken from D.A. Pennebaker’s documentary on the 1967 Monterey Pop music festival. Instead of using the iconic footage of the performances, VOWLS chose to focus on the audience, […]
