STR#022: Les Marinellis LP and STR#024: J Marinelli one-sided 10″

Les Marinellis – Same LP (special edition only)

„Listening to the first track one thing falls into place: LE KID is only absorbed in LES MARINELLIS and not blown away, as your mind will do. You’re right there where the great debut left you – deep in a sweeping frisky 60’s garage pop huddle. The second song “Le Ciel“ comes kinda like a lost gem from the DEMON‘S CLAWS songbook – pure country psychedelica. Clappin’ hands and shamblin’ through “Deux Pour Trois” then inhalin’ the hazy musing of “Seul” these dudes will bring you to the light of “La Vie” at the end of side A.
The flip side features even five more super catchy tracks in the vein of JAQUES DUTRONC and DEMON‘S CLAWS, but the last dance “Mes Yeux” is a goddamned HIT! All performed in a sloppy BLACK LIPS and LE CHELSEA BEAT parlance and at some moments the band reminds me a little of LOS GROWLERS with balls.
There is no doubt about the sound, solid recordings and excellent mastering ensure sweaty adventures in the haunts of your youth.“ (P.Trash)

The regular LP version was released by P.Trash Records in time for their Europe tour in April, the tape version by Burger Records. So now the special Stencil Trash Records edition is finally done, too. It’s limited to 105 copies in white wax and comes with a handmade 1c linocut on the front- and a fixed photo on the backcover. The color of the linocut varies a bit between a more reddish or a more yellowish terracotta color. 300g/m² paper and numbered by hand.

J Marinelli – The War on Pleasure one-sided 10″
More than two years after „Young Spillers“ (STR#008) J Marinelli is back on Stencil Trash Records! In the meantime he released another two 7″s and two tapes and finally toured Europe in May 2014.
On this record J Marinelli proves one more time his diversity of songs and influences „that re­aches from GUI­DED BY VOICES, THE FALL or WIRE to Billy Bragg, Hasil Ad­kins or Billy Chil­dish.“ (Roman/Corporate Knock-Out Fanzine)
The 10″ is limited to 117 handnumbered copies in gold/red-streaked wax pressed without labels and comes with a 1c silkscreened brown record hole cover and black innersleeves. A cut-out „A“ made of adhesive rust imitation foil got attached to the A-Side.

STR #021: Bror Gunnar Jansson 8″

„Bror Gunnar Jansson (a.k.a. Gunnes Enmanna) is a Swedish one-man band who unleashes a garage-style hybrid of blues, country, and folk. He is an enigmatic performer who can ooze backwoodsy and minimalistic laments as well as unleash ferociously angular and devastatingly powerful breakdowns.“

On this record all four songs were recorded on an old tape recorder from the late 30’s which gives the songs a very specific sound.
Next to the specific sound of the songs the record comes in a specific getup. The records are dubplates, which means they aren‘t pressed, but cut in real time. This time on pretty thick black wax. The A-Side Label is a printed 3-layer stencil painting, the B-Side one is based on a 1-layer stencil painting. The cover is „just“ a postcard (350g/m² postcard paper and a glossy lacquered front side) with a printed 7-layer stencil painting on it, that was sprayed on corrugated cardboard. The edges are cut-out by hand and a round white sticker is added to the front. The record is limited to 49 copies, numbered by stamp.
