||S/T 8"||08 cones|
live to air on Radio Massey in June 1998, this was only just captured on
tape by the astute Bongo Bunny. Tapes, ocarina, guitar and bass played by
Noctuary (who has a solo 8" on Headshy) and Pht.
Edition of 52 - some left
|Birchville Cat Motel
||Grey Wolves Gather / Blue Jewel Drift 7"||07 cones|
Campbell Kneale out on his own leaving us all standing in wonder at his
karaoke microphone antics which do of course end up sounding like something
entirely more meaningful.
Edition of 103 - some left
This record is intended to be played at 33.333rpm.
||S/T Double LP||06 cones|
with the "release everything" theory on this one. A jam and two live performances
from the combined forces of Bongo Bunny and Pht - everything that they've
played in the same room together. You be the quality controller. Instruments
involved are guitar and bass. |
Edition of 52 with hand painted covers - some left
||Yellow #5 Aluminium Lake / Mica 7"||05 cones|
understated layers of pulse and drone, backed with a less sumptuous track
reminiscent of a wintery sunday afternoon in front of the heater. Lugosi
is a four-piece on this occassion, who hail from Wellington and include
Birchville Cat Motel's Campbell Kneale.
Edition of 104 - some left
I always swore I'd never release a record without putting the speed on it. Some hope - the Lugosi 7" is intended to be played at 33.333rpm.
||S/T LP||04 cones|
tracks of drone, noise and manipulated metal. Fantastic debut.
First edition of 62 with hand painted covers - some left.
|She Camel of God
||Consequences LP||03 cones|
of drone and noise from three basses feeding back, then another twenty of
duet bass bash and hum for good measure. Three tracks in all.
First edition of 26 - out of print, aiming to repress some time
||The Clear Lakes / Falling Through 7"||02 cones|
from a Palmerston North import from Hawkes Bay who's now resident in Dunedin.
Beautiful low-key solo guitar pieces.
First edition of 28 - out of print
Second edition of 22 - out of print. Looks like we have to repress again some time
||The Great Southern Dogfight / Mycelium Skysong 8"||01 cone|
intended to debut in '97, but the covers for this took over 6 months to
handpaint, so it surfaced in May '98. Solo recordings with sparse guitar
cutting through didgeridoo drone on the first track, then going it alone
on recordings taken from a solo live to air broadcast.
First edition of 27 with hand painted covers - out of print
Second edition of 37 with b/w cover- some in stock

2000 and 2001 have seen Secret Safari do absolutely nothing so far except move HQ from New Zealand to Australia which has taken a bit of settling in and a lot of getting used to other distractions. We're still planning full length posthumous releases by She Camel of God and Half (which includes solo artists Willow and Bongo Bunny).
We also hope to get organised enough to release an album by young ex-Hamilton now-Wellington trio Negative Eh, and maybe even a release by Pht, but don't hold your breath for that one.
