Bardo Pond ‘Amanita (25th Anniversary)’ 2xLP
Pre-order. Due 17th December.
Matador Records celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Bardo Pond’s long out-of-print second album and label debut, ‘Amanita’, with a newly remastered double LP reissue.
Formed in 1991, the Philadelphia-based quintet have spent some thirty years mapping guitar music’s outer limits, dialling into extremes of noise, chaos and harmony in free form compositions that now unfurl across 12 full-length albums and a near-limitless body of EPs, cassettes and CD-Rs.
Recorded by the line up of John Gibbons (guitar), Michael Gibbons (guitar), Isobel Sollenberger (voice, flute), Clint Takeda (bass) and Joe Culver (drums), ‘Amanita’ is the place where the band’s spontaneous collective creativity blazed into maturity.
Available to independent retailers on coloured vinyl.
