AD HOC RECORDS


AD HOC Records founded in 2004 as a U.S. based ReR Megacorp sublabel. Their catalog includes experimental music from important R.I.O. related artists, avant folk, etc. Many of their releases are reissues of rare and forgotten 80`s material. The entire back catalog of MCCB Records (Mass Culture Control Bureau) - the dutch label Geoff Leigh (Henry Cow) formed in 1978 - has been also issued by AD HOC. Our file contains some samples of these reissues.

nice one guys!

you'd probably be interested in this new label as well - they've put out some great stuff, all unreleased on cd, all mastered from analogue tape. hopefully they're releasing some of my archive recordings later this year -->>

also -->>

they've released 2 cd's, (originally only available on vinyl) I played on - "Mouseproof" by Gerry Fitzgerald, & "Me" by Mary-Anne Paterson (I'm credited as "an unknown busker" on the cd, but they also did a vinyl & put my name on it, after I told them who the other musicians were!)

cheers..
