Doug Shipton (Finders Keepers Records/B-Music UK) is a renowned record hound, LP compiler, international DJ and co-founder of Finders Keepers Records. He's in the States to promote his long awaited debut mixtape, DEDICATED SWALLOWER OF FASHION - a cacophony of syncopated psychedelic madness that draws from his enviably expansive record collection and challenging DJ sets, dusting off handpicked fuzz-ridden-break-heavy platters from as far and wide as Malaysia, France, India, Germany, USA, Russia, Spain, Columbia, Italy and Indonesia.
Mahssa (B-Music/Finders Keepers Records Los Angeles) represents the UK- based B-Music/Finders Keepers Records in the States (West Coast office) and is part of a global collective of DJs and "Vinyl Librarians" dedicated to the art of discovery (and rediscovery) of off- kilter music, film, design and literature of the better part of the '60s/'70s and beyond. Her own psychedelic "record party" in LA is called CUREATION, and she's responsible for the curation and compilation of the respective POMEGRANATES and GOOGOOSH collections.
Floating down the Yuba River, hang gliding off the cliffs at Fort Funston, a day at Ocean Beach with the dog, a leisurely stroll in Golden Gate Park, a fat bag of Trainwreck; these are among the many images that come to mind when listening to Mitchell and Manley’s Norcal Values.
Inspired by his spiritual advisor, Bettina Richards, Phil Manley recruited the shredding stylings of Earthless’ Isaiah Mitchell to collaborate on a record comprised almost exclusively of a single continuous guitar solo. The recording was made live with no overdubs - completely improvised. This recording exhibits inspiration so pure that it could only come from within. Drawing from the classical Indian music tradition as well as from modern new age music, Norcal Values is the sonic equivalent of fine Californian cuisine. We invite you to dine upon its bountiful aural splendor. Bon appetite.
