Red Square album launch day: the queuing begins…..


A queue forms outside a record store earlier today

For those of you who tend towards physicality as opposed to aethereality as your chosen medium of music buying, and who also have a penchant for the archeology of ground-breaking 1970s experimental avant-metal / free improv / shredding mash-ups – or who wish to develop a penchant for the same – Guerssen Records are today releasing ‘Red Square: Rare & lost 70s Recordings‘ upon an expectant world in both 12″ vinyl and CD formats.
The album contains tracks from a 1976 concert recording and from the last known Red Square rehearsal session in 1978.
You can buy copies in all good record stores (if you can find one, that is), or direct from Guerssen themselves: vinyl or compact disc.
If, on the other hand, you’d like to add to the 50 TBs of mp3s already on your iPod, or avoid the queues, then the album is also available on iTunes and Bandcamp.

Red Square: bouncing back once again…..

It’s very nice to have a project from so long ago see the light of day again, especially as Red Square was – how shall I put it…? –  not widely appreciated at the time.

Through the good offices of uber-networker and ultra-psychedelicist, Steve Krakow (AKA Plastic Crimewave), Guerssen Records are releasing a selection of our 1970’s recordings under the title ‘Rare and Lost 70s Recordings’. It will be available in all known formats….well apart from 8 track, phonograph cylinder, DAT, mini-disc, cassette and shellac, of course…on April 13th, but you can get the digital download on Bandcamp and iTunes as of today.

You can pre-order vinyl or CD copies direct from Guerssen. The vinyl and CD covers will look something like this:


…..and there’s a very natty promo video to whet the appetite on YouTube:

Supernormal Festival 2014

A very good friend of ours, the inestimable Z*qhygoem *, Brighton-based actor, musician, artist, illustrator, animator and playwright, has recently sent us a set of photos, taken by variously by Sue and Clive Craske, of the Red Square set at last year’s Supernormal Festival (mad as a box of frogs, but all the better for it!). Below are a selection of the best:

Red Square @ the 2011 Tinderbox Festival

Here’s a recently re-unearthed two minute extract of our 2011 set at the Tinderbox Festival. Due to timing over-runs, we had to cut our set down to twenty minutes, so a lean, spare instrumentation was the order of the day; no electronica, no bass clarinet, no flute. Just guitar, soprano sax and drums.


Just like the old days………
