Angus MacLise - Dreamweapon II Vinyl LP- "Secret History" (2nd Pressing)
by Ira Cohen and Angus MacLise
This is the second pressing of DREAMWEAPON II, a compilation of previously-unreleased material by artist, poet and experimental percussionist Angus MacLise and his wife, artist, illustrator and musician Hetty MacLise between the years 1965 and 1969. Recorded by the artists using a Nagra recorder, these tracks function as artifacts of the underground music scene of the 60's, with peers that included La Monte Young, Tony Conrad and The Velvet Underground. This compilation shows a range of approaches to sound and percussion, from Michael McClure-esque grunt filled bongo jams, church bell ragas and minimal atmospheric organ drones.
This remastered LP also includes a risograph-printed facsimile of YEAR, a calendar poem by Angus MacLise originally issued as a poster in 1965.
DREAMWEAPON II comes in a screen-printed sleeve limited to 500 unnumbered copies. Cover art by Dana Young. Photograph on Back Cover by Ira Cohen
