O.R.k.

Inflamed Rides (cd pre-order)


Drawing on the singular talents of vocalist Lorenzo Esposito Fornasari (Berserk!, Obake), guitarist Carmelo Pipitone and a rhythm section comprising Pat Mastelotto (King Crimson) and Colin Edwin (Porcupine Tree), Inflamed Rides is an intriguing collaborative debut release which defies easy categorisation.

A primordial and energetic fusion of playful acoustic psychedelia, precise math rock and intense ambient electronica, O.R.k provide a soundscape rich with controlled chaos.

'A forward-thinking punch in the face of complacency!' - O.R.k.

Pre-order for October 2nd release.


Bill Nelson's Orchestra Arcana

Optimism (cd pre-order)


Optimism was originally released in 1988 and comprised home-studio recordings from 1984-1985.

Nelson reflected on the album, "Whilst these recordings are lo fi in nature, I have always been fond of them. These recordings serve as a reminder that expensive technology isn't always the key to creativity."

This 2015 Cocteau Discs edition fully restores the original album artwork and features new sleeve notes by Bill Nelson.

Pre-order for 30th October release.
