De Stijl Records

We'll have these soon

hype williams
find out what happens when people stop being polite, and start gettin reel

IND 088 LP

Hype Williams may or may not consist of two people named D. Blunt and Inga Copeland, it may or may not still be part of an 18 year relay project thought up by a lady named Denna Frances Glass. Lately there has also been rumor that it is the side project of singer Joss Stone (she evidently financed the making of it).

Either way, when asked for a statement concerning Find Out What Happens When People Stop Being Polite, And Start Gettin Reel, we’ve been informed via email from Inga Copeland only these words : ritolin (sic) and rama lama 555 (sic).

Phantom Payn Days
Phantom Payn Daze
IND 079 LP

While in the widely neglected 39 Clocks, he made records that never sold and played gigs that few ever saw, Juergen Gleue has arguably been the most important exponent of electrified German sound since the late 1970s. Phantom Payn Daze was made in the mid to late 90s and has never been released. It's his final LP and is overflowing with all the elements that romanticized, loner / stoner music claims, an encoded expression of highly private feelings, an ambiguous, emotional quotient, and a dark, murkily melodic vibe. It's a record that first and foremost lives and breathes with an endless stream of great songs. But perhaps it's most curious component is it's amazingly prescient sound, a precursor to so many of today's lo fi acts, all wrapped up in their San Francisco hair.

the parasites of the western world
s / t
072 lp

the parasites of the western world are a band from portland OR who released their recorded debut in 1978. it's a fascinating spin, a galactic ramble across the otherworldly themes of alienation and paranoia, seemingly inspired by LSD and philip dick. primarily the creation of patrick burke and terry censky, the parasites were limitless with invention and completely DIY. this is a record that was recorded in an apartment, by a crew thoughtful enough to curtail it's loud excursions for the daylight hours. its rockist moves are surprisingly informed by the typical institutions of this era : pink floyd, the beatles and hawkwind and it's many electronic flourishes are an above ground sound that would presage the likes of vertical slit, f / i and vertigo. the parasites remain to be light years ahead of a time that has yet to come.

New Store Page

Welcome to the new Store site for stuff we've collected through the Dub Ditch Picnic and Prairie Fire Tapes labels.

Due to a catastrophic keystroke, I wiped out the store that was connected to the DDP page so I made a new site dedicated solely to non-Dub Ditch/Prairie Fire releases.

Ordering is simple. Please email your wants to dubditchpicnic (at) gmail. com and we'll let you know totals with postage.
