Ulrika Spacek is a British experimental rock band formed in Berlin by Rhys Edwards and Rhys Williams, relocated to Homerton, London.
Work on debut album ‘The Album Paranoia’ began in the summer of 2014 in the band’s shared house KEN, and was finished there last month.
In conjunction to the making of ‘The Album Paranoia’, the band has curated a number of nights under the name ‘Oysterland’ combining their first live performances with a series of exhibitions.
The band's music has drawn various interpretations, a cross pollination of hypnotic fuzz, Verlain-Malkmus guitar idiosyncrasies and intertwining feelings of both angst and melancholia.

Mini Album Thingy Wingy are 7 brand new & exclusive tracks recorded by Anton Newcombe in is his studio in Berlin in 2014 & 2015.
Running at over 34 minutes.,the mini album is co produced, engineered & mixed by Fabien Leseure.
This release contains four self written songs by Anton Newcombe ,a co write of the band's first Slovakian song (Prsí Prsí) with Vladimir Nosal , another co write (Pish) with Tess Parks and a cover of the 13th Floor Elevator's track "Dust" which features Alex Maas from the Black Angels on jug Originally, Anton Newcombe was heavily influenced by The Rolling Stones' psychedelic phase, but his work in the 2000s has expanded into aesthetic dimensions approximating the UK Shoegazing genre of the 1990s and incorporating influences from world music, especially Middle Eastern and Brazilian music.
This album brings the traditional Brian Jonestown Massacre sound mixed with eastern influences & bringing it up to date with the benefit of all the additional weirdness that's been discovered in the past 40 years.

This vinyl comes in a limited edition of 1000 copies, hand-numbered on 180-gram vinyl, with cover art that reproduces Jasper John’s 1970 lithograph, ‘Scott Fagan Record’.
Includes a Download Card.
Originally released on Atco in 1968, Scott Fagan’s bewitching debut is a genuine lost classic – a mystical, mythical, deeply-soulful folk-rock masterpiece. This reissue has been remastered from the original tapes and released by Saint Cecilia Knows in association with Fagan’s label lil'fish records.
In 1969, artist Jasper John came across South Atlantic Blues in a cut-out bin, bought the record and used it as the inspiration for three artworks that are in museums and galleries such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art and MOMA, the Walker Art Center and the National Gallery in Washington D.C.

Very limited 7” single (300 only worldwide)
“Human Requirements” is the next single to be taken from Batteries, the debut solo album from Sci-Fi Steven from bis’ new band Batteries, which is out now via Do Yourself In. The single will come out on 11 September and will be available as a double AA side single with the song “Softhead”, a new recording exclusive to this this 7”.
As Sci-Fi Steven Explains, the song "Human Requirements" is a “thinly veiled political rant about the desperate inability of the electorate to fundamentally put collective welfare ahead of short-term selfishness. The "say-one-thing, vote-another" mentality that pervades and my frustration at conservative negativity. Somehow, it seems to have turned into a pop song with a skinny-tie sprightliness."
More info about Batteries:
Batteries is the self-titled debut solo album by Steven Clark (professionally known as Sci-Fi Steven) from Glasgow's Punk/Disco legends bis. An exercise in short, sharp new-wave snappiness, Steven has ramped up the guitars and latent aggression to create a new sound which has already been compared to Devo playing Queens of the Stone Age or vice-versa. Nagging melodies abound with some darker twists and a cynical sense of positivity informs the lyrics. There are plenty of pop hooks for the bis faithful, but Batteries is an angrier beast.
"Irresistible post-punk pop." Vive Le Rock 9/10
"The self-titled debut album from Batteries fizzes with post-punk energy across its 12 tracks, poking you in the ribs with arpeggio riffs that are all angles and elbows." The Herald
"The lead single, which like the project and the album is also called ‘Batteries’, is the perfect lead in to the project. It’s a sharp-edged three minutes, pushing itself forward with stop-start rhythms, and bloody hell it’s catchy." CMU
