Unshackled from the Mainstream
An original and complex Audio Sculpted Psychedelic project/label founded during the 80s by Ralf 'gypsy' Bevis. A place to purchase music/soundscapes created by Arzathon, Dreamtime Troubadours, Trolls on Acid, Heavy Metal Vampires on Nuclear Waste, featuring artists Don Campau, Shanna Dawn, Kristianne Gale and others. Music that draws you in, a spiritual /tribal experience like no other. Some pieces are heavily influenced by early krautrock infectious grooves but the whole musical signature consists of audio sculpted psychedelic electronic epics covered by harmonized acid rockin dynamics. Largely improvised and a dangerously lysergic sounding experience. Rodent Tapes, putting the Independent back into music...
