SWIM 10/DREAMSCAPE 1994 – SILVER SURFERS CDR
Lo-fi keyboard and tape drones, undersea soundtracks for lucid dreamers…
CDR – 32 minutes
SWIM09/DORKTHRONE/GHOST VALLEY – SPLIT LP
At long last! Long delayed split LP co – released with the mighty Hit Time label (now sadly defunct) – Two sides o burning love, 15 minutes each. Side A (Dorkthrone) is a relentless swirling dictaphone/guitar jam spiralling patterns of anti-matter into yr noggin. On the flipside is a sweltering Ghost Valley improvisation, recorded under a bridge and with extra special guest ‘K’ blasting out some bad-ass clarinet. Super duper daddy-o!
Awesome artwork provided by Christopher Guest
sample coming soon
12″ vinyl, 200 numbered copies
SWIM08/GHOST VALLEY – RETURN TO GHOST VALLEY
Recording of a Ghost Valley jam that began fairly normal then just span off into this crazy droning mess. It was ridiculous, I guess you had to be there! I case you weren’t, here is the tape of the best part.

SWIM07/BAH TSAH JENNY TROTH – UNTITLED TAPE

A tape found on a garbage dump.

SWIM03/DORKTHRONE NO. 2
Much more ambient, soft tones and drones on side 1, b/w a longer ambeint piece slowly crumbling away on side 2. One to put on the walkman when you are going to sleep.
C30. Blue, white & lilac covers.
This being the first and most crudely recorded Dorkthrone tape and recorded on junk equipment. The first side (blue) consists of a distorted drone and feedback which eventually breaks out and erupts into a fiery storm of lo fi crackle and hiss. Side 2 (pink) is a little softer with some slow moving feedback scree, finished off with some guitar drift found on an old cassette from who knows when.
C32, comes in pink or white.
