Great news, I have been tossing up purchasing the remastered vinyls as well, I just need to get some money together, I should get paid one of these days.

Question: do you distribute to any Australian dealers?

It might be worth your while getting in contact with Oren Ambarchi. He works at a shop down in Melbourne called Metropolis Bookshop (who also sells CD's). I know him and David have played in Sunn o))) together.

No worries. Keep me informed to how it pans out.

ELIXIRS:

"It lay quite still; he touched it, it was dead. Accustomed no doubt to a sedentary life, an uneventful existence spent under its humble carapace, it had not been able to support the dazzling splendour imposed on it, the glittering garment in which it had been clad, the pavement of precious stones wherewith they had inlaid its poor back like a jewelled pyx."
J.K. Huysmans (A Rebours, 1884)

The house of the idealist is teeming with the most unlikely of treasures. Fairies, jewelled turtles, lindworms and moon worshipping plants are but a few residents. But in these fragments contain a cognitive universe propelled by an unspoken and unheard pantheon. Guapo give voice to this realm, where the mystical philosophies of Huysmans, Kircher, Conan Doyle, Hyltén-Cavallius and many others are used as facilitators and indeed, guardians for the music conceived on "Elixirs".

As a result, Elixirs transcends any musical antecedents that Guapo have been acknowledged for in the past. Instead, the music here explores the outer-most regions of psychedelic composition. Flickers of Popol Vuh, This Heat, Magma, Third Ear Band, Moondog and early 70's Miles Davis are present here as over-arching themes are morphed and mined through serpentine asymmetrical structures. Chiming rounds and canons swim through a sapphirine ocean of polyrhythmic mantra. All sullenly overcast with compositions so mercurial, the paths you can take are infinite. The dense orchestration and finespun virtuosity (seamlessly captured by engineer / producer Antti Uusimaki) create a richness previously hinted at but never fully realized until now. Vocal contributions from Swans chanteuse Jarboe and O'Sullivan's long-time friend and cohort Alexander Tucker, illuminate the Twisted Stems suite into a realm of composition previously unexplored by the band. On "Elixirs" Guapo have opened a secret vault of treasures where jewels of sulphurous green and ashen blue blossom dwell. Where springs of fire feverishly burst through a vista of golden chrysoberyls. Let the ceremony commence.
