FDS120 RAMLEH 'It's Never Alright'/'Kerb Krawler' 7".
Ramleh cover art

For many years now Fourth Dimension Records has forged a strong relationship with both Gary Mundy and Anthony Di Franco of Ramleh by virtue of support for their respective solo endeavours, Kleistwahr and JFK. After having released a large proportion of their albums under these guises it then only made sense that a Ramleh record itself for the label would be mooted. This single grew out of these discussions and follows on from 2019's critically acclaimed The Great Unlearning 2LP on Nashazphone, which itself saw Gary and Anthony not only reunited with Stuart Dennison, Martyn Watts and Philip Best, but also collaborating with Philip's wife (and Consumer Electronics partner) Sarah Froelich and delivering perhaps their most immediate and surprising work to date. Made available as a good old fashioned double-A side on 'punk rock green vinyl', both 'It's Never Alright' and 'Kerb Krawler' maintain these high level proceedings, too. If you ever wondered how Noddy Holder might sound if fed through the Ramleh mangler, then 'It's Never Alright' will help flesh out that thought with its city-destroying stomp attack colliding head on with the kinda untamed keyboard splurge the group is more generally renowned for exorcising. Before you then begin to prod at those question marks arising from the melee, 'Kerb Krawler' helps to reel you back to a psychedelic orbit nobody but Ramleh know how to navigate. Proof positive, should it be necessary, that these boys won't be donning mirror adorned top hats any time soon. Typical for Ramleh as they stand now, both songs represent just two of the many sides they're now given to exploring. Bold, serious, playful and once again illustrating exactly how easily they straddle the line of being great musicians never afraid to turn that notion on its head by rising to new challenges, this single pays testament to their current upward curve. Limited to 500. Due in November 2019. Pre-order now. £5.75 + £5.00 shipping (anywhere in the world)

FDCD116 | THEME | Sacral Blood Warning CD.
Sacral Blood Warning cover

The sixth album by the group originally founded by Stuart Carter and Richard Johnson in 2000, following both their involvement in the 1998 incarnation of Splintered for a European tour. Over the years, Theme have performed live sporadically, appearing at festivals and playing a couple of short tours in Europe, the last of which featured them in a full band collaborative mode also including Faust's Jean-herve Peron on bass and Zsolt Sores (Inconsolable Ghost) on viola and electronics. Sacral Blood Warning pays witness to Theme once more returning to the core duo in order to expand on the largely brutal and less compromising approach their work has been imbued with since the very beginning. Partly designed as a reflection on modern times and all the inherent confusion as unrest appears to reign heavier than ever in an almost illusory realm, the music that constitutes this album explores notions of a self without moorings violently torn in several directions. Whilst it might seem deliberately dystopian for the most part, the rich layers of often organic sound reveal a gamut of other delphic shades besides the confusion. There are moments when one can snatch another gulp of air before succumbing to the undertow itself initially inspired by all from sci-fi soundtracks to the confrontational assaults of Suicide and the ravaged voice of Robert Ashley. Joint-released by Idioblast, this will appear sometime during the Autumn 2019. Pre-order now at the special lower price of 9.75 GBP + 3.50 GBP shipping (anywhere in the world) NB: The price will increase to 11.00 GBP once the CD is here

FD2LP115 | KLEISTWAHR | This World Is Not My Home/Over Your Heads Forever 2LP
This World Is Not My Home cover

Reissue of these now o/p albums (originally released as CDs on Fourth Dimension Records in 2014 and 2016, respectively) as a limited edition 2LP set. The Down But Defiant Yet and Acceptance Is Not Respect albums will follow at some point in the future. Each album in this series will be featured in its entirety. 200 of each set will be made available for retail via direct orders and selected stockists. This is strictly limited and will not be repressed. The first one is scheduled for autumn 2019 and can be pre-ordered now. The albums will be made available digitally at the same time, too. 21.00 GBP + 10.00 GBP shipping (anywhere in the world) NB: Due to some unexpected problems at the mastering stage, there were some delays, but the test pressings arrived in early September and have been approved.

FDLS105 | 2DICKS | Neighbourhoods in the Eternal Light lathe-cut 7"

Two collaborative pieces by Richard Youngs and Richard Johnson (hence the 2dicks moniker) recorded mid-2017 and essentially comprising source material from the latter teased into comparatively more 'listenable' shapes by the former (with the help of an additional sound or two). Not the easiest of music, Richard Youngs himself referred to the pieces being akin to mid-period Flux of Pink Indians-meets-PIL's Flowers of Romance during the recording process, but this may suggest results that are less avant-garde than they actually are. This release should appear during the autumn 2019 in an edition of 20 or 30 lathe-cut 7"s in handmade packaging. It is available to pre-order now. 18.00 GBP + 6.50 GBP postage (anywhere in the world) NB: Given the nature of the release, the price is inevitable. Sorry. Lathe-cuts are great fun but expensive to produce.

FDC104 | DZIADY | Gaseous God cassette

Four tracks belched from a deep underground lava-stream of barbed electronics, menacing growls and feral guitars, replete with guest guitar work from founder of Poland's premier death metal group, Vader, Piotr Wiwczarek. Limited to 20 and packaged with 4pp booklet featuring the lyrics. Out in the autumn 2019. £5.25 + shipping (anywhere in the world)

FDCD119 HAND & LEG Lust In Peace CD.
Lust in Peace cover art

In 2017 the Greek bass and drums duo of Iro Sofoulaki and Stelios Papagrigoriou, otherwise known as Hand & Leg, released their excellent eponymous debut LP on US label Slovenly, which introduced their very own take on a post-punk-infused blend of fiery modern garage and slightly art-driven destructo-rock. Since then, they have been keeping themselves busy, playing live as often as possible, including a more recent support slot to Wire, and working on the second album, Lust in Peace, which will once again appear as a vinyl release on Slovenly and is accompanied by this CD version, featuring an extra track. With their vocals sung, screamed or spat in English and the fuzz-drenched music bursting with attitude, Hand & Leg gleefully embody a sense of fury that'll resonate with many. With its occasional subtle nods to No Wave and murky shades perfectly ploughed with the help of white hot distortion, Lust in Peace does exactly what it's supposed to do in delivering on the promise of the debut. Released in September 2019. Available now. 9.75 GBP + 3.50 GBP shipping (anywhere in the world)

FDCD117 | JFK | Weapon Design CD
Weapon Design cover

Reissue of the album from 2018, previously only available as a now almost sold out LP. Featuring two bonus tracks, 'Enantiodromia' and 'Interference II', this collects ten cuts from Ramleh's Anthony Di Franco that are built around ocean floor basslines, carefully controlled electronic blizzards, depth charge beats and the kinda overall sonic devastation perfect for the modern age. Mastered by Matt Colton at Alchemy, London. Digipak CD, limited to 300. Released in April 2019. Can be pre-ordered now. 9.75 GBP + 3.50 GBP shipping (anywhere in the world)

FDCD112 | GAD WHIP | Post Internet Blues CD
Post Internet Blues cover

The CD version of this Lincoln/Yorkshire-based UK group's latest album (the vinyl of which was released by Germany's X-Mist label), following several low-key cassette albums released since 2014, plus the four tracks that constitute 2017's limited edition 'In A Room' 12" e.p. Gad Whip blend avant-garde sensibilities with a contemporary take on the place where D.I.Y. culture meets post-punk, hints of deconstructed garage rock and interstellar voyaging through sweat-drenched waking dreams. Immediate, powerful, confounding and kept in place by wry, sometimes observational, vocals that recall Jason Williamson and the late Mark E. Smith, this is music primed perfect for any 21st century meltdown in a suburban sprawl. Released early February 2019. Available now. 9.50 GBP + 3.50 GBP shipping (anywhere in the world)

FDCD113 | LIMBS BIN | Compassion & Vision CD
Compassion & Visions cover

Recorded by a quartet of grubby fools in a miserable warehouse in Cleveland, Compassion & Vision sees Limbs Bin founder Josh Landes joined by a cast of repellent perverts, Wyatt Howland, Erik Brown and David Russell, to deliver maybe the worst masterpiece to date. With Howland providing a nauseating rumble and Brown and Russell trading off turns on the kit, the two pieces that constitute this album place the listener in uncomfortable proximity to the conditions of the session. In Howland's completely unforgiving mix, you can smell the seat almost as much as the piss. Over its duration, Limbs Bin explores a range of feelings from anger, exhaustion and resignation to agony, frustration and misery. War jazz for the emotionally underdeveloped. Terror grind for cowards. Lean back, take a deep breath and experience Compassion & Vision. Released January 2019. Out now. 8.75 GBP + 3.50 GBP shipping (anywhere in the world).

FDCD107 | MAP 71 | Void Axis CD
Void Axis cover

The very latest from this Brighton duo of Lisa Jayne (words, voice) and Andy Pyne (percussion, electronics) who over the past year or two have been steadily gaining wider recognition for both their live performances and their recorded work. Fourth Dimension Records released their excellent 'Gloriosa' album in 2017 as a limited edition cassette which sold out instantly and prompted a CD reissue in early 2018 featuring some bonus tracks culled from equally now hard-to-find limited edition releases. 'Void Axis' is their fourth album and catches the duo at their most immediate thus far, with Lisa's narrative being pushed to new places in terms of its delivery. The music itself remains possessed of a contemporary post-punk hue that equally draws from other genres themselves often turned upside down. 'Gloriosa' garnered heaps of praise that sometimes saw Map 71's work noted alongside the music of Sleaford Mods, Z'ev, Suicide and Cut Hands. 'Void Axis' is the perfect way to discover whether one agrees with that or not. Released by Foolproof Projects/Fourth Dimension Records. Out now. 2018. 9.50 GBP + 3.50 GBP shipping (anywhere in the world) NB: Few left!

FDLP101 | JFK | Weapon Design LP
Weapon Design cover

The very latest from Ramleh's Anthony Di Franco,, Weapon Design presents eight devastating tracks of pure electronic mayhem. This is the second full length JFK LP following the release of the NGANGA album on Chondritic Sound in 2017. Mastered and cut by Matt Colton, at Alchemy, London. Limited edition of 300 lack vinyl LPs in shrink-wrapped sleeves. Released mid-July 2018. 16.75 GBP + 6.50 GBP postage. (anywhere in the world) NB: Few left!

OTHER RELEASES

FDEP108 | V/A | ''Presently Untitled' 2x7" e.p.
Presently Untitled cover

Featuring a track each by Richard Youngs, Alternative TV, EXTNDDNTWRK, Map 71, Kleistwahr, Theme and Sion Orgon. Tied in with a Fourth Dimension Records' night at Cafe OTO on October 19th 2018 came this compilation in the form of a double-7" featuring the four artists who appeared on the night itself and a few others associated with the label. Essentially a mini-album's worth of material represented. 350 pressed. SOLD OUT

FDS118 | GAD WHIP 7" | Ward 24
Ward 24 cover

Trying to understand or explain the very name of this Yorkshire group to anybody when taking into account they already have songs about couch hunches, a goat bag and a grey scale quiche will always present a far tougher call than trying to unravel their music, despite the apparently disparate elements pulled together over the course of an album. Gad Whip have been operating for a few years now and have a string of mostly low-key releases behind them on cassette and suchlike. it was only in 2018 that the gears were greased a little more with the release of the Post Internet Blues LP on Germany's X-Mist label This itself was reissued by Fourth Dimension in early 2019 as a CD expanded with four tracks from the now difficult to find 'In A Room' 12" (on Ever/Never) from 2017. From this point on the thick, dark and swollen skies forming a familiar blanket to the group's operations look like they're firmly in reach as the work continues to get cranked into place. The 'Ward 24' b/w 'Trademark' 7", joint-release by X-Mist, might well adhere to their humble and foggy beginnings in the sense it is limited to 150 but the music, perhaps the group's most immediate yet, wryly looks far beyond. 'Ward 24', still bound to vocalist Pete Davies' semi-spoken psycho-rambled narratives, has a distinctly melodic lilt to its serpentine yet curdled minimal rock underpinning, whilst 'Trademark' is pure 'n' catchy garage-punk bluster instantly proving these boys don't want anybody to get too cosy before whatever it is next they're cooking up. This one mainlines straight to the late night dancefloor of a seedy basement club already cracking under the strain of music not especially designed to be danced to. The nods towards subtle experimentation of their longer works may well have been lifted, or abandoned altogether, but Gad Whip know exactly how to utilise the single format to the best of its potential. Released in late April 2019. SOLD OUT

FDC114 | MITSURU TABATA | The Long Afternoon of Tabata cassette
The Long Afternoon of Tabata cover

Reissue of an album that originally appeared as a privately issued CDr in 2016 by the renowned Japanese guitarist known for co-founding Boredoms and his work in, amongst others, Zeni Geva, Acid Mothers Temple and Green Flames. On the two live tracks here he uses guitar and synth to once again draw from psychedelia, avant-garde, folk and noise music in a personal quest to create new shapes. Limited edition of 40 copies. Released early March 2019. SOLD OUT

FDCD110 | KLEISTWAHR | Acceptance Is Not Respect CD

New album from Gary Mundy, expected in September 2018 comprising two parts that between them feature seven tracks inspired partly by religious and political beliefs and their place in a 21st Century UK that is secular and tolerant yet showing fissures during recent years. More subdued and elegiac than most of Kleistwahr's output, there's still much explored in Gary's perfect ability to bridge seemingly uncontrolled noise with tethers that see it assume new shapes. As with the previous albums, limited to 300 in a gatefold LP style sleeve based on the Broken Flag design. Released late September 2018. 11.00 GBP + 3.50 GBP shipping (anywhere in the world) NB: Few left!

FDC111 | INCONSOLABLE GHOST | Sokolowsko Channelling cassette

In August 2017 the UK/Hungarian/Dutch trio of Hilary Jeffery, Gideon Kiers and Zsolt Sores appeared at the Sanitorium of Sound festival in Poland's Sokolowsko, a village situated amongst rolling fields of green, woodland and hills in the west of Poland. Together, using a combination of voices, electronics, trombone and viola, they created a vast and fully immersive blanket of psychedelic sound effective in its ability to point to what lays beyond those constellations formed at the edge of the mind's eye. Powerful in both scope and vision, the music filled out the village's only cinema with serpentine drones and huge, foggy plumes of suitably crepuscular sound like steam-hammered crystal shards to the skull. This was an expansive music that instantly transfixed the listener whilst layers of meta-sound coiled deep within. The venue was perfect and the realisation undiluted by compromise. Thankfully, the event was recorded and forms the the basis to this limited edition cassette release for Fourth Dimension Records. It captures the entire hour-long concert and certainly will not be the last word from this group. Released in September 2018. SOLD OUT

FDCD110 | KLEISTWAHR | Acceptance Is Not Respect CD

New album from Gary Mundy, expected in September 2018 comprising two parts that between them feature seven tracks inspired partly by religious and political beliefs and their place in a 21st Century UK that is secular and tolerant yet showing fissures during recent years. More subdued and elegiac than most of Kleistwahr's output, there's still much explored in Gary's perfect ability to bridge seemingly uncontrolled noise with tethers that see it assume new shapes. As with the previous albums, limited to 300 in a gatefold LP style sleeve based on the Broken Flag design. Released late September 2018. SOLD OUT

FDEP106 | ALTERNATIVE TV | Dark Places 12" e.p.

Where to start with Alternative TV? Most know that Mark Perry, founder of Sniffin' Glue fanzine, formed the group either due to or as a response to punk in 1977. Since the debut 'How Much Longer' 7" released that very same year, however, Mark has remained the sole surviving original member and driving force. Not one to stand still, he has taken the group through a succession of lineup changes embarking on a wide spectrum of styles since then; the only unifying factor amounting to a sensibility that never once strayed from its original status. Until now there have been around fifteen albums, with the last one, Opposing Forces,. from 2015 on Public Domain Records, proving to be be amongst their strongest with its marrying of igneous rock, idiosyncratic touches, barbed commentary and occasionally seething undercurrents of dark psychedelic noise. 'Dark Places' expands the mantle of this by offering four tracks, aided by Dave Morgan and Clive Giblin and enhanced further by a guest appearance by the legendary Vic Godard on one of them, that encapsulate a vision as perfectly widescreen as it is bifurcated. Cascading between full-on rock to a kind of minimalist electronics approach perfectly in keeping with Alternative TV's traverses to the furthest reaches, 'Dark Places' might well seem a world away from where the group were 41 years ago but pays testament to deep metamorphosis, both internally and externally, very much a foundation of their sensibilities. Please note that this 12" was released on 21/04/2018 to coincide with Record Store Day. 600 were pressed, of which 500 were on grey vinyl and 100 were on black. SOLD OUT

FDC103 | LIMBS BIN | Vomitous Excoriations of Phlegmatic Aesthetes cassette

Live from Western Massachusetts, this is twenty minutes of churning electronics, drum machine blasts and shrieks of paranoid ecstasy from America's last honest voice in an ocean of duplicitous vipers. Strictly for the young at heart. A long walk with no stops. A sacred meditation on life as a vessel. Recorded by Seth Manchester at Machines With Magnets in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. For fans of General Dynamics, CSX and North Street, this is the latest release from a solo artist not given to cutting corners. Released in mid-April 2018. Limited to 50. SOLD OUT

FDCD102 | MAP 71 | Gloriosa CD

Reissue of the long o/p cassette released by Fourth Dimension in spring 2017. This collects all seven tracks from the tape release, plus a further six tracks originally released on the equally sold out Blue Sixteen tape (Blue Tapes, 2014) and eponymous CDr on their own Foolproof Projects in 2013. The Brighton duo merge words swaying between the observational and surreal by Lisa Jayne with Andy Pyne's incredible, Charles Hayward-ish, percussion and subtle infusion of electronics. The line between post-punk and its forays into, dare we say, artiness and the more instant and reachable end of the avant-garde might seem very clear here, but the music draws from a wide range of sources twisted into something that very distinctly can only be Map 71. Released in late February 2018. OUT NOW! 9.00 GBP + 3.50 GBP postage (anywhere in the world)

FDCD86 | KAKOFONIKT | Kaktuus CD

"The album Kaktuus by KakofoNIKT is an interpretation and translation of the cactus experience into the language of sounds. The compositions are arranged as consecutive stages of the contact with the cactus - starting from preparations, peeling off the skin and spines, going through all the stages of the sensations up to the extreme effects. Kaktuus is the result of experiments with sound perception, methods of improvisation and attempts to evoke peak experiences through music."

FDCD60 | SPLINTERED | Noumena CD

Joint-released by Amanita and Suggestion, this appeared in late 1998 and amounts to something of a 'lost' album originally intended for release a few years earlier on a US label.
