Phronesis is my attempt to create a small musical unit with equally strong emphasis on each member/instrument in the group. Writing for this group I’ve tried to keep things relatively simple harmonically in order to open up for an exploration of what can sometimes feel like endless rhythmic possibilities. The music on the album is melodic and groove based and often plays around with repetition in order to emphasise and dramatize change when and if it finally occurs. Inspired by a world heritage of rhythms and sounds found in African, Cuban, Brazillian, Middle Eastern, Eastern European folk and traditional music, Phronesis strive to create original and meditative soundscapes fusing these rhythms with lyrical and atmospheric contributions from the respective members of the group.

Official reissue of Bill Nelson’s classic & long deleted six cd boxed set originally released in 2002. Eestores the original boxed set artwork & book. Esoteric Recordings’ imprint Cocteau Discs are very pleased to announce the re-release of one of the most sought after titles in BILL NELSON’s extensive solo catalogue, the boxed set "NOISE CANDY”. Originally released in 2002 on the Tone Swoon imprint, the set was available for a matter of months before the distributors ceased to exist. "NOISE CANDY” was a fascinating project that gathered together a host of recordings made by Bill at his various home studios between 1990 and 2000. Featuring 121 tracks, the set comprised 6 CDs of songs and instrumental music, each CD an album in their own right and entitled variously "Old Man Future Blows the Blues”, "Stargazing With Ranger Bill”, "Sunflower Dairy Product”, "King Frankenstein”, "Console” and "Playtime”.

Pere Ubu's troubles with record companies are legendary within certain underground rock circles. In perhaps the most bizarre turn of events, the group's collected works of 1978-1982 – after being out of print for nearly a decade – were reissued by Geffen as a five-disc box set, Datapanik in the Year Zero. Named after the group's 1978 EP, the set is arranged chronologically and occasionally substitutes live versions for studio tracks, but that hardly matters – nearly every song the band recorded during the five-year time span is included.
