credits

releases 31 July 2015

The Savanna are Miguel Vilhena, James Vilhena Pedro Castilho and Diogo Sousa. Have a history of exotic adventures and progressive hedonism.
"Dreams To Be Awake" is born in the labyrinths of a Lisbon surreal. Joining the 60's and 70 nowadays, is an exercise in dirty acoustic, analog-spiritual, full of melodies and psychedelic weirdness eared.
This long-term, both contemplative and frantic, is a melting pot that combines textural travel with pop reverie. The result is an exquisite soup as sweet as acid, that makes you want to repeat.
The disc name is also the title of one of his subjects, chosen by summarizing the most theme. References to dreams or the imaginary context, ambition or even sleep, are recurrent.
Requests for concerts began to emerge after the release of first single "Fancy Pants", which assured them "full house" in various concert halls around the country.
The album was recorded and produced by Miguel Vilhena in the Pontiaq studio, was mixed by Miguel Vilhena and Moullinex and mastered by Jerome Shmitt in Airlab studios (Alt J, Space, Ninja Tune).

REVIEW ON OUR ISSUE OF WET TAXIS-FROM THE ARCHIVES IN UGLY THINGS MAGAZINE,THIS ISSUE #39

WET TAXIS – From The Archives (G.O.D. Records, Greece) LP/CD/Download

Review by David Laing.http://ugly-things.com/
They were a weird mob these Wet Taxis. Severed Heads-connected experimentalists who discovered the newly-minted Pebbles series and became an industrial-tinged conceptualised '60s covers band on the Birdman-worshipping Sydney scene in the early ‘80s, these guys were not your typical garage revivalists. But they were great. They didn't do dress ups and they didn't care for authenticity (although they did stick closely to the template); they simply heard something in the music and explored it. And they had at least two secret weapons: the expressive low budget guitar pyrotechnics of lead guy Simon Knuckey, and the rich, soulful baritone of troubled vocalist Louis Tillett. These instruments were utilised to highlight the dark feeling in the material and which gave them the power to share stages with the likes of the Celibate Rifles and the Scientists. Although this incarnation of the band was short-lived, Tillett kept the band going, adding keys and brass and strong original material to create a brooding acid blues-jazz vibe (with an occasional pagan/early folk influence in the melodies) , and then continuing with a prolific solo career along the same lines, seemingly becoming some sort Graham Bond-like figure (the cowl and witch-obsessions didn't help) in the process. (As an aside, Tillett's later and post-Taxis stuff is well worth hearing - it's like he latched on to the influences of Ray Charles, Mose Allison and the like in the garage stuff and followed his own path with them. In a Sydney Sound context you could compare some of his stuff to Birdman tracks like 'Love Kills' – long-time Birdman & New Christs bass player Jim Dickson worked with Louis often at this point, and Deniz Tek was a rare collaborator - but Tillett also worked with Ed Kuepper's jazz-inspired Laughing Clowns and a number of figures on Sydney's jazz scene, including Jackie Orszaczky of Syrius.) Originally a posthumous souvenir of the original band’s brief lifespan, From The Archives mixes short experimental pieces with well recorded live material including great covers of the Spit Ends "Rich With Nothin’", We The People's "You Burn Me Up & Down" and the Unrelated Segments' "It's Gonna Rain" (but not their super-intense version of "Cry Cry Cry") amongst others. Sadly this limited reissue sadly doesn't add the great cover of the Atlantics' "Come On" that the early line/up took to the top of the Aussie indie charts in '84, nor the version of the Guess Who's "Clock On The Wall" that was its b-side (and which became a Tillett signature tune), but I guess you take what you can get. And anything with the Wet Taxis or Louis Tillett's name on it is worth your time. (David Laing)

ΤΟ ΜΑΚΕ A LONG STORY SHORT...

emoticon smilBETWEEN THE 5TH OF JUNE AND THE 7TH MR. MARKKU HELIN WHO REPRESENDS THE BAND "PERMANENT CLEAR LIGHT" HAD AN OUTBURST OF THE WORST KIND HERE ON FACEBOOK (NOT HIS FIRST ONE TO US) AND STARTED DESFAMATING,CURSING AND SLANDERING OUR RECORD LABEL'CALLING US BOOTLEGERS AND CRIMINAL

WE ISSUED THE PERMANENT CLEAR LIGHT VINYL LP AFTER HAVING A LEGAL CONTRACT WITH THE BAND WHICH WAS SIGNED BY MYSELF AND MR. MARKKU HELIN.WE SIGNED THE CONTRACT IN THE END OF 2014 MONTHS BEFORE WE ISSUED HIS RECORD WHICH YOU ALL KNOW WAS A BIG HIT THAT SOLD OUT IN TWO MONTHS. THIS CONTRACT CLEARLY STATES THAT THE RECORD'S (THAT WAS ISSUED FEBRUARY 26TH 2015) MECHANICAL RIGHTS TO ALL THE SONGS IN ANY PHYSICAL OR DIGITAL FORMATS BELONG TO G.O.D. RECORDS UNTIL JANUARY 2019.ALSO THE COVER ART THAT OUR ART TEAM DESIGNED AND CREATED BELONGS 100% TO G.O.D. RECORDS TO USE.MR. MARKKU HELIN WAS PAYED AS AGREED IN COPIES OF THE RECORD SEND TO HIS ADDRESS IN FINLAND.
AFTER A WHILE (AND SOME OUTBURSTS WE BEGUN TO GET USED TO IN WHICH HE WAS CURSING MY WHOLE FAMILY) HE STATED THAT HE WAS OK NOW AND WANTED TO RELEASE A 7" VINYL RECORD WITH US INCLUDING TWO NEW SONGS. I SAID I'LL THINK ABOUT IT (BOY AM I A SLOW LEARNER? emoticon smile ) BUT AFTER A WEEK HE SAID THERE WAS NO TIME AND GAVE THE 7" TO ANOTHER LABEL "BECAUSE IT HAD TO GET OUT FOR THE SUMMER,IT'S A SUMMER SONG".
I WAS CONTACTED BY HIM VIA EMAIL AND WAS SHOWN THE COVER IN THE PICTURE BELLOW MADE BY FRUITS DE MER LABEL FOR THE ISSUE AND SAW THAT IT CLEARLY INDICATED "RIBES NIGRUM" A SONG WE HAD ALREADY ISSUED AND HAD THE MECHANICAL RIGHTS FOR (REMIX, IT SAID) AND OUR COVER OF THE LP WHERE IT WAS CREDITED TO THE BAND STATING VAGUELY THAT THEY ARE ON FACEBOOK WITH NO MENTION WHATSOEVER TO OUR LABEL OR OUR ISSUE ALTHOUGH BOTH SONG AND COVER BELONGED TO US BY CONTRACT (ANYBODY INTERESTED PM ME YOUR EMAIL I CAN SEND YOU THE CONTRACT SIGNED BY ME AND MR HELIN VIA EMAIL).
I CONTACTED MR KEITH JONES AND STATED THE OBVIOUS AND HE SAID HE DIDNT KNOW ABOUT OUR RIGHTS AND THAT IN THAT CASE HE WOULDNT ISSUE THE 7" WITH THE PCL'S SONG BUT HE WOULD CHOOSE ANOTHER BAND. I NEVER INDICATED THAT I DIDNT WANT IT TO BE ISSUED, I JUST CLAIMED OUR RIGHTS,THAT IS FIRSTLY IF OUR COVER IS THERE,WE SHOULD BE MENTIONED AS THE ISSUERS AND LINKED AND FOR THE USE OF THE SONG A MERE COMPENSATION OF 15 VINYL COPIES.


MARKKU HELIN THEN BROKE LOOSE (ONCE AGAIN) SENDING THREATENING AND BLACKMAILING EMAILS TO OUR LABELS ACCOUNT,THEN AFTER WE REPORTED HIM TO THE GREEK POLICE ELECTRONIC CRIMES,HE STARTED HIS SLANDER AND DESFAMATION ON HIS TIMELINE ON FACEBOOK WITH 5 POSTS,MOST OF YOU KNOW,SOME EVEN RUSHED TO LIKE AND COMMENT WITHOUT HEARING BOTH SIDES... emoticon wink
HE STILL CONTINUES TO SEND THREAT EMAILS WITH HIS LAST ONE STATING "I AM A MANIC DEPPRESSIVE NO ONE CAN FIND ME ACCOUNTABLE FOR WHAT I SAY" (STILL ALL EMAILS ARE AVAILABLE TO SEND TO ALL INTERESTED TO READ) SO OUR LAWYERS JOINED FORCES WITH THE LEGAL TEAM OF FACEBOOK AND WE ARE SENDING MR MARKKU HELIN A LAW SUE,TO PROTECT AND DEFEND THE NAME OF OUR COMPANY AND OURSELVES AND FAMILY.I JUST NEEDED TO STATE THE FACTS TO ALL OF YOU,AND SET THINGS STRAIGHT,A BIG THANK YOU TO THOSE WHO STOOD BY OUR SIDE,YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE! AND THAT, BELIEVE ME,IS THE LONG STORY BEING SHORTENED...emoticon winkI'm glad to report that the dispute and (frankly) misunderstanding between Permanent Clear Light and Greece's G.O.D. Records is now solved. I am genuinely sorry for G.O.D:s Michalis and Maria for my harsh words but as I said it's all settled now!!! They're free to re-release our album and I certainly hope it will sell out as fast as the first release! This is only beneficial to both parties. Sorry, Maria & Michalis!THE APOLOGY POST BY MR MARKKU HELIN,ALSO IN HIS TIMELINE

COMING ON CD A GREAT NEO FREAKBEAT~MOD~ SURF~POP~PSYCH COMPILATION,A COLLABORATION OF G.O.D. RECORDS WITH THE BASEMENT BLOG AND REPUBLIC FM 100.3 RADIO!!!!! A MUST FOR THE SUMMER!!!ALL NEW & FRESH!!!!


Compiled by : Michalis Apostolou, Michalis Nikolitsis, Nikos Kontopoulos http://www.from-the-basement.com/Albums/Music_From_The_Basement_66

The Soundcarriers - Low Light  
Off their fourth album ‘Entropicalia’, released in 2014.
The Soundcarriers were formed in Nottingham, UK, where founding members Adam Cann, Paul Isherwood (a.k.a. Pish) and Dorian Conway have played together since childhood. Leonore Wheatley completes the band’s line-up adding subtle, gentle vocals and harmonies. Filmic, fantastic and authentically psychedelic, a jazz-infused psych-pop with a 60s vibe. 
Dumbo Gets Mad - Radical Leap 
Off their second album “Quantum Leap”, released in 2013.
Dumbo Gets Mad emerged in the summer of 2010 in Northern Italy (originally from Reggio Emilia) and has now migrated to Los Angeles. Luca and Carlotta recorded sans fancy technology, using old-fashioned equipment like analog synthesizers and tape machines creating a psych-pop sound with lots of good vibes. 
The Assyrians - Astronaut  
Off their debut album “Tundra”, released in 2014.
The Assyrians are from Milan, Italy. Marco Giudici, Giovanni Bozzoli, Niccolò Fornabaio, Carlotta Boattini and Emily McKearney took aspects from dream-pop, psychedelia, indie, ambient soundscapes and simply unusual, but fantastical alternative-pop to create what they call galactic pop. 
Beaulieu Porch - Golda 
Off their second album “We Are Beautiful”, released in 2013.
Beaulieu Porch is an English psychedelic pop band formed by multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter Simon Berry in 2010. “This is proper Strawberry Fields territory. Think floaty psychedelia, dreamy vocals, extended bizarre codas. And it is brilliant…” Inspired psych-pop with rock influences. 
Faces on Film - Percy  
Off their third album “Elite Lines”, released in 2014.
Faces On Film are from Boston, USA and debuted in 2008. Their third album “Elite Lines” marks a major leap forward for Mike Fiore as songwriter. It's all shades and variations of psychedelic guitar tones, rhythmic and sensual bass and on overarching clarity of vocals and lyricisms. Indie rock and folk sound with a psych flavor.
Tara King Th. - L’Enquete  
Off their album “Hirondelle & Beretta”, released in 2013.
Tara King Th. hail from Rhône-Alpes, southeast France. Amazing psychedelic pop that conjure up spaghetti western, future-gone-retro or acid rock from the early 70's. Their 5th album “Hirondelle & Beretta” brings to mind Ennio Morricone and Broadcast. It is a soundtrack to an imaginary film. The music itself combines lyrical giallo style themes with gorgeous baroque pop, ornate psychedelia and even a bossa nova. It could be a moody noir thriller, but it probably makes an even better case for a horror soundtrack.
Arnold Fish - The Guilty (Il Colpevole) 
Off his debut album “In The Land Of The Elephant Blues”, released in 2015.
Arnold Fish is a french pop multi instrumentalist from Lille. He creates songs by combining the sounds of mellotron, fuzzy guitars, electric organs and other classical instruments with psychedelic effects. His amazing debut "In the Land of the Elephant Blues" by G.O.D. Records (Garden Of Dreams) really blew our minds. 
The Liminanas - My Black Sabbath  
Off their third album “Costa Blanca”, released in 2013.
The Perpignan duo of Marie and Lio Limiñana found themselves augmented by three additional musicians to create a hypnotic maelstrom of sound that suggested an alternate universe. It exists somewhere between the Jesus & Mary Chain's influences, the Gallic pop and ye ye of Anna Karina and the sly sophistication of Serge Gainsbourg, marrying fuzzed-out psychedelia and agreeably rambling rock with a pop sweetness. 
The Entrance Band - No Needs 
Off their second album “Face The Sun”, released in 2013.
The Entrance Band is the second project of Los Angeles gifted Guy Blakeslee with Paz Lenchantin and Derek James. With their 2nd album “Face The Sun”, the psychedelic power trio emerges from a long tunnel of addiction, anxiety, sorrow and sadness to wilfully turn toward the light, moving from facing down mortality to facing the sun. “No Needs” is the album’s masterpiece with phenomenal instrumentation and even a flute driven climax!
The Buttertones - Nu Suave 
Off their debut album “Buttertones”, released in 2013.
The Buttertones are Richard, Cobi, Sean, Dakota from Los Angeles, California. The sound of the bass kick squeaking in “Nu Suave” with that riff that blat-blat-blats into your ear while the snare rolls on and the singer laments “All fucking night”. This is the kind of band that will certainly get even better with time and we can’t wait. 
Invasions - Rosy 
Off their second self-titled album “Invasions”, released in 2013.
Invasions are a five-piece band from Toronto, Canada. They manage to combine stoner jams with garage-infused surf rock and gritty, horn-filled country western blues. Their sophomore album “Invasions” screams Tarantino soundtrack, it’s doused in reverb and is always jaunty and fun.
Apache Sun - The Rain That Never Came  
The band’s debut single, released in 2014.
Apache Sun are a psychedelic rock band formed in Glasgow, Scotland in 2014, by brothers Kris Mitchell (vocals, guitar) and Pete Bruce (bass). The band started as a home recording project and this is their debut single, a mix of Indie and neo-psychedelia. Can’t wait for their debut album.
Condor Gruppe - Ondt Blood 
Off their debut album “Latituds Del Cavall”, released in 2014.
Condor Gruppe are from Antwerp, Belgium. Michiel Van Cleuvenbergen, Jan Wygers, Milan Warmoeskerken, Krist Torfs and Kris Delacourt gave us certainly one of the best albums of 2014, with their debut “Latituds Del Cavall”. It combines obscure Italian 70’s soundtracks and spaghetti westerns with surf-music, all dipped in psychedelia.
Blossoms - Blow 
The band’s debut single, released in 2014.
Blossoms are one of Britain's next big things. Tom Ogden (Voice/Guitar), Charlie Salt (Bass/BV's), Josh Dewhurst (Lead Guitar/Auxiliary Percussion), Joe Donovan (Drums) and Myles Kellock (Keyboards/BV's) are from Stockport, Greater Manchester and they are astonishingly good. Their Psyche-pop riffs, the vocal melodies where a film noir meets the 60s aesthetic show authentic quality. There is a range of audible references here from the Arctic Monkeys via Abba to The Doors artfully constructed psych haze.
The Madcaps - Melody Maker 
Off their debut self-titled album “The Madcaps”, released in 2015.
The Madcaps are Rémi Peltier (Drums), Thomas Dahyot (Rhythm Guitar & Vocals), Vincent Henri (Lead & 12-String Guitars & Backing Vocals) and Bastien Bruneau Larche (Bass, Keys) and they come from Rennes, France with a beautifully crafted mix of 60s garage and surf. Their debut album “The Madcaps” really hit our soft spot with “Melody Maker” that has instantly become one of The BSMNT’s anthems because of its lyrics, apart from anything else.
Os Noctàmbulos - Forget Everything 
Off their debut album “Corsica Garden”, released in 2014.
Named after their home studio in Massy Palaiseau, France, Anglo-French garage rockers offer a bag full of Nuggety treats on their debut album “Corsica Gardens”. Spearheaded by the very talented Nick Wheeldon, Os Noctàmbulos are garage rock revivalists with a sound steeped in ingredients from the top-shelf, managing to sidestep being another retro retread. 
The Electric Magpie - Friends
Off their debut album “Begins”, released in 2014.
The Electric Magpie are Peter Maffei, Hunter Stroope, Ignacio Gonzalez, Culen Jensen, Tomas Dolas and Claire Morison from San Francisco, California. Their debut album “Begins” is a mix of Folk, Garage and Psych Rock and really stood out with its memorable infectious choruses and its warm, comfortable early seventies glow. The ease with which these guys traverse genres is commendable and results in an album that sounds like it exists outside of the confines of time. But the masterpiece here is "Friends", starting with a splendid New York coke-cool rhodes intro, before going all "I Am The Walrus" and getting moody and psychedelic.
