ANTON NEWCOMBE – The ‘Record Store Day UK 2017 Champion’ Is Making Art Everyday…

Vibes that thrills us in a way we want to scream out loud…


Sometimes I wonder if the days in Berlin count 48 instead of 24 hours because the longtime psychedelia explorer Anton Newcombe who lives in Germany’s capital for
some years now is unquestionably the most productive and creative artist on this
planet. He’s the mastermind of The Brian Jonestown Massacre (four albums in the last
four years), the inspiring soul of several collaborations and the producer of many like-minded musicians. His motto is ‘MAKE ART EVERYDAY’ and that is exactly what the Californian 24/7 sonic addict does. Experience here two new trippy works in progress…

As part of Anton‘s official involvement with the 10th birthday (next Friday, 22 April) of Record Store Day UK, he will re-release The Brian Jonestown Massacre‘s 1991 Pol Pot’s Pleasure Penthouse LP for the very first time on vinyl. Years ago, the album was only released on cassette format (limited to 500 copies) via Burger Records. The music was recorded back in 1990/91 at Newcombe’s home in San Francisco. “I used to make up songs everyday on the 4 track just to teach myself how to write. I understood what I liked about music, I just didn’t know how to pull it out of the ether and bring them into being. I would make demo tapes and share them with friends, endless demo tapes, I would send them to magazines and record labels with no return address, just for the fuck of it. It was never my intention to actually release this music. For instance if I came up with a country song, I would finish it just to learn more about writing. I didn’t want to be in a classic country group, this is a document of my learning process. Good times…”

Here’s this year’s Record Store Day UK Champion talking about collecting records …
