Links was an artists’ cooperative, formed in 1968 by The Gaylads, Ken Boothe, The Melodians, and Delroy Wilson, fed up with getting ripped off by Studio One and co. They did everything themselves — hiring Dynamic / Wirl studios, printing up labels, organising the pressings, and distributing in person to Kingston record shops
LP - Soundtrack to the 'ozploitation' classic 'Next of Kin' from '82 - a highly stylised psychological thriller scored by none other than ex-Tangerine Dream / Ash Ra Tempel drummer and German electronic music pioneer, Klaus Schulze. The music featured in the film is a unique hybrid of pulsing Giallo-moods and hypnotic 'Berlin-School' electronica. This is the first time time these recordings have been made available. Remastered from the original master tapes. Highly recommended!
LP - Poland's premier, contemporary jazz outfit EABS, return to Astigamtic Records with a majestic new album of deep, spiritual jazz inspired by Slavic folklore. ‘Slavic Spirits’. This LP was 2 years in the making, containing 100% original material. They are joined by 22a head-honcho Tenderlonious who lends his exceptional soprano saxophone and flute playing to all seven tracks. Any fans of classic Strata East style jazz should give this a spin!
