Jigglypuff In these days of fashion corporations producing clothing based on fake goregrind bands and 11-year old mumble rappers rambling about meth binges while being managed by their parents, it's time to look elsewhere for subversive music. If you want some good old-fashioned neighbour-terrorizing sound this is the album you want to be blasting at full volume in 2020 (just turn up the treble instead of the bass).

about

Reed instruments are capable of some of the most impassioned music on the planet, all due to the malleability of the reeds, themselves—historically made of plant tissue – which vibrate when air hits them. The origin of most reed instruments is steeped in rural, pastoral culture. Many insistent, loud, often joyful, reed instruments have always been played outdoors as traditional accompaniment for dancing and celebrations.

This compelling album is the second volume in the Excavated Shellac release series, featuring rare, never-before issued 78rpm records from around the world, centered on a unique theme. The previous volume (Excavated Shellac: Strings) focused on stellar stringed instrument performances. This release examines some of the most intense and hypnotic music set to disc during the early years of international recording, all featuring reed instruments. All previously unreleased on CD, with three bonus tracks not available on the newly-released vinyl LP. All records have been carefully transferred and mastered and are presented with extensive liner notes by Jonathan Ward.
