Gaffer Records sampler n°3

More info soon.
April 1st 2013
Here's some of the latest news from Gaffer Records.
First of all, the konstruKt LP (feat. Peter Brötzmann & guests) won't be released.
There's no need to give many details, but just need to let you know that Peter was not
really aware of the LP release...seems like konstruKt forgot to mention it.
So the LP won't be released and so will the boxset including the collaborations
LP's between konstruKt and other guests (Marshall Allen, Evan Parker...)
We're really sad and disapointed but we'd rather not to proceed with this anymore
as we don't know the "terms" between konstruKt and the other
musicians they share those recordings with.
We're sorry about the whole story and wish the best to konstruKt and all their guests.
If you were interested by the "Eklisia Sunday" LP, just know that only 5 records (test press)
were made and are available.
Just write to firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
Second news is the release of the Millevoi/ Ricart 4tet LP called "Haitian Rail".
One track, taken from this LP is available on The Wire Tapper compilation CD.
The record will be out in early may. More info about it very soon...
And latest news is about our STORE.
Loads of customers don't add the shipping costs when they order records, and it's a but awkward
to always "ask" for that money.
So the new prices are ALL POSTPAID.
The system is maybe not perfect (we'll regulate the prices if people order several records,
so the shipping costs won't be paid many times for the same order).
But we don't want to use those formated store/shop/cart.
Please let us know if you encounter some issues.
February 05th 2013

Here's the 2 next records to be released on Gaffer Records :
GR038 - konstruKt (feat. Peter Brötzmann, Hüseyin Ertunç, Dogan Dogusel & Barlas Tan Ozemek)
"Eklisia Sunday" LP
Release date : March 1st 2013.
konstruKt , a quartet from Istanbul - offers us a great free jazz concert recorded (in may 2011)
in a church built during the 17th century.
Along with great guests (with Peter Brötzmann among others),
konstuKt is able to give birth to a music that belongs to their own cultural roots
and the 70's black free jazz area, like Don Cherry.
This LP is the first item of the forthcoming LP boxset (with other great musicians
such as Marshall Allen or Evan Parker...)
GR039 - Colin Webster "Antennae" tape.
Release date : March 1st 2013.
Colin Webster is a talented sax player from London.
He collaborates with Anthony Johnston (in the Spam Band),
plays as a duo with Mark Holub, as a trio with Holub (again) and Sheik Anorak
or even in bands...Colin can play everything.
But here, playing solo, he is able to show his skills and play soft, very soft,
profound just by using his lungs and the mechanics of his instrument..
A quiet and smart music you should give all your attention.
As usual, get in touch for shops, distros, promo stuff...
