Brief introductions: Virginia Genta is one of the core Jooklo members and plays sax. Andrew Barker plays in Gold Sparkle Band and Acid Birds and has played alongside musicians such as John Zorn, Thurston Moore and Tara Jane O'Neil.
115 copies of this record were released over the summer as part of Troglosound's one-sided LP series.
I don't really think a huge amount needs to be said about this other than it's a three-part free jazz session of tenor sax and drums. Free jazz is always one to divide opinion so make your own mind up.
Future release news from Camp Jooklo has been flying in lately: four records are due on Qbico next month; another is due on Troglosound; Luca Massolin has just released a new cassette on Digitalis Ltd (under the name Golden Cup); the record with Peaking Lights is due on Holiday Records soon; Release the Bats are meant to be releasing something by them in 2010.
Digitalis Ltd has another big batch: Bigger Insides
Kimberly Dawn: Medroxy Progesterone Acetate
The Old Rig
Calypso Hum: Avant Reindeer
The Sublevel Arkestra
Blackest Rainbow has some new t-shirts and the Not Not Fun Robedoor LP.

The excellent Root Strata updated with news of distros of the Barn Owl LP (Aquarius, Mimaroglu, Eclipse, Time-Lag, Fusetron, Forced Exposure, Ctd Ltd, Mid Heaven, Boomkat and Volcanic Tongue) - thank you RS - and news that the Grouper / Xela split 7" is shipping and they have printed another 100 copies of the Oneohtrix Point Never DVD.

Thanks to the people that have sent emails in the past week or so with music from their band or info, it's really appreciated, I'm just going a little slow with replying to mail at the moment but I will respond in the next couple of days. Some great music to appear on this blog thanks to some of these bands emails!
And thanks to the 25 people that have joined the Last.fm group. I was surprised when 5 people had so 25 is fantastic. Already discovered half a dozen new groups. Feel free to add end of year lists, recommendations or whatever else you might want to the group.
