Update / Death of Bunny Munro / Computer troubles

Last week my main/good computer picked up some nasty fecker of a virus that I can't get rid of. It has blocked Norton, skirts around Ad Aware, undetected with Kaspersky's online scanner, SuperAntiSpyware can't find it and Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware can't dig it out either. By running all those scans I did find 60 other files that neither Norton or Ad Aware have been able to pick out over the years though. Really recommend the Malwarebytes software, that's done the best job so far.
But anyway, lots of computer troubles so I don't want to send stuff across to you lot in uploads from that computer, hence the reason more dishy noises aren't being sent.
Hope everyone has been enjoying that Caboladies LP, it's a blinder if you haven't listened to it yet.
I will try and have something up mid-week from this computer but apologies if it takes a while longer.

'The Death of Bunny Munro' is Nick Cave's second novel and today I found there were a few excerpts on Youtube. This is a dirty chapter so be warned if others are nearby.

Bloody widescreen videos. ARGH!


Root Strata: Tarentel & Paul Clipson - Over Water (DVD)
Christina Carter - Lace Heart (2LP)
Unfortunately no Oneohtrix Point Never DVDs available direct - Aquarius have/had copies and Volcanic Tongue are apparently due some.

Blackest Rainbow: Natural Snow Buildings - Shadow Kingdom (3LP + 2CD / 2CD - both with zine) This will be mental. Artwork is looking very colourful and the music is meant to be another mind blower.
Ben Nash & Sophie Cooper - Alchemy
Forest Creature - Frustrated Analogue
All are pre-orders at the moment

Nothing Out There: Howlin' Ghost Proletarians - The Last Farewell
Daymoon - Goupil Le Fol
Hands Of Sand - Clay Dreams

Low Point: Celer - Brittle
Sadly Danielle passed away last month but expect quite a few more recordings to posthumously appear.

Arbor: Oneohtrix Point Never - Zones without people (LP)
James Ferraro - Citrac (2LP)
Rale - Whispering Gallery (12")

Stunned Records: Analog Concept - Listen Already Today to the Music of Past!
Fabric / Sparkling Wide Pressure - Late Clothes / Blue Doorways
Pummeler / Derek Rogers - Juggernaut / Simmer
Mortuus Auris & the Black Hand / Emuul - Omicida Della Regina / Songs For Solo Piano
Historians - Proof (bonus if you buy all of the other four)

Digitalis Ltd: M. Geddes Gengras
Sovetskaya Gone
A Wake
The Shitty Listener
Body Morph
Tonal Wasteland
Enfer Boreal
All cassettes

5 Minute Association: Loren Connors - The Light of the Crescent Moon (10" lathe) Only available from distros (see earlier 5MA post for the list); expensive records but beautifully put together - this one comes housed in a wooden box.

Rampart Tapes: V/A - Resonant Hole Vol. 1

Amethyst Sunset: Ajilvsga - Red Crow (LP)

The Boomkat sale is clearing a lot of Type Records releases at the moment, some good bargains.

The Bobby Beausoleil 4LP set on Ajna Offensive has been disappearing from everywhere - was amazed how quick they sold out from distros over here. Hopefully more will appear on these shores. Check out Dennis Dread's blog 'Gross Anatomy' sections for the working of the box set's art.

New Epic45 is due later this week on Make Mine Music. Haven't heard any of it but I really hope they have pulled out another 'Slides' or 'Drakelow'.

Beniffer Editions: Schimpfluch-Gruppe - Paris Aktionen
Wasted Nymph - Inmost Diarrhea of the Astral Crone Part II
Metalux - 1-0-0-3
Ignatz - Some of Them Are Funny Songs
Andrew Zukerman - Book and Cassette

Kning Disk: Erik Enocksson - Man tänker sitt
The Bats - The Guilty Office
Nils Frahm - The Bells
Rickard Javerling - Valleys

Digitalis: Cursillistas - Joint Chiefs (+ pre-order bonus)
Pulse Emitter - Oppressive Nature
Green Blossoms - Whiskey Leaves

Type Records: Peter Broderick - 4 Track Songs (available at Boomkat as of today so keep a look out at other stores)

Please feel free to point stuff out that I've missed or promote your label/band, always good to find out about new music.
I'll try and get something up this week. There will probably be a couple of cassettes, some amazing rare soul tunes and possibly some zine zip folders (have to say, not the new NSB until it's OOP).

5 Minute Association has mailing list to receive updates?

Not to my knowledge. The myspace page - http://www.myspace.com/5minute_association - is probably the best place to stay up-to-date at the moment.

Few more updates added to the bottom of the post.

Think I got that Cursillistas LP in there somewhere. Wish I had $30 spare at the moment, would definitely pre-order that one and still haven't ordered the L'Animaux Tryst LPs - one day, one day.

Haha, did warn you about the Loren Connors 10". They were £27 from Norman Records but if you're in the US I'd wait for shops out there to update because the international shipping for it also looks a bit much.

Oh, new Not Not Fun (Odd Clouds, Explorers), Great Pop Supplement (Spoono, Melodie du kronk) and Ikuisuus (Eyes Like Saucers).

Thanks a lot - unless that's just a spam message. I tried Superantispyware and the virus managed to block that too. The computer shop have fixed it now, hopefully.
