AMP distribution is in the process of creating a database
while simultaneously re-posting the materials meticulously
collected over the past 15 years. The goal is to post a
new album a week from one of the eight labels archived,
along with other self-released and out-of-print materials
from the DIY scene.
The rough count of albums with catalogue numbers from the
participating labels is approximately 313.
Please be patient as the site gets up and running. And please
feel free to provide feedback, report broken links or *.zip
The first release being posted is CR001 from Cetpath Recordings.
This Headphones album, even as it aproaches
eleven years of age, is still as amazing to me as when I
first heard it. Alien-environments, insects buzzing, machines
grinding away as ghostly moans disperse amongst distorted
clicks and pops. For all the musik I have ever heard claiming
to be "progressive" or "forward-thinking",
this easily tops it all. And the fact that the Cetapath
label then released another 60 albums(!) after this just
proves that whatever is in the water down in Texas scares
the hell out of me. Enjoy.
