Presenting a collection of Music & Elsewhere from the United World Underground,

1. ENGLAND

Magic Moments At Twilight Time & The Charles -

"Mick & Chris On Acid... The Album!" (C-4005, 1987)

The collaborative album that started it all thirty years ago, includes the epic 23 minute original of the psychedelic anthem, "Acidic Heaven". Plus bonus tracks by Dirty Planet and Mick Magic, and the book "The Second World Chronicles" by Sati Varg.

2. GERMANY, WEST & EAST

Lord Litter - "Torn Between Temptations" (M&E 012, 1992)

The seminal work of Mr. Underground himself, no serious subterranean collection would be complete without it. Plus bonus tracks by Lord Litter and Meta Georgia, and a bonus album by Das Freie Orchester.

3. FRANCE

X Ray Pop - "Under My Skirt" (M&E 028, 1992)
An M&E exclusive from the delightfully 'artless and childish' and highly successful kitsche pop darlings of the underground, plus bonus track.

4. SCOTLAND

Glass - "Glass Planet" (M&E 590, 2003)

Superb electro new wave pop with an occasional dark overtone and a seriously excellent female vocalist up front. Plus bonus tracks by Cactus Rose.

5. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

L.G. Mair Jr. - "Drōn" (M&E 395, 1997)

The ex-Alien Planetscapes maestro electro-experimentalist's 45 minute soundscape masterpiece.

6. BELGIUM

Galactic Lilah Et L’Orchestre-Fantôme -

"Essais Somnanbuliques - Volume 1: Anima Spiralia" (M&E 105, 1992)

An inventive series of semi-experimental musical vignettes from the Drum Fondu keyboardist. Plus bonus track from We Never Met.

7. WALES

Sons Of Selina - M&E 25th Anniversary Special Collection (1992-95)

The best selling band on M&E probably need no introduction, lots of wondrously chugaramic psychedelic spacepunk drawn from their three best M&E releases, including the whole of the live album, "Now Give Me Back My Cake". Plus bonus track from Sons Of Selina vs. Head In The Shed.

8. ITALY

Mana ERG - "Another" (Self Released CDR, 1999)

Some of the finest work by the incredibly talented Bruno De Angelis, a fusion of so many well conceived and performed musical styles it almost defies categorisation. Plus bonus track.

9. GREECE

The Flowers Of Romance - "The Story So Far... And Further!"

(M&E 088, 1992, M&E 25th Anniversary Special Edition)

Adding a further half an hour to the original release, much of which includes remastered versions, including extra tracks from the Flowers, Nexus and New Zero God, thus bringing the story up to date. Plus exclusive 'piano and voice' bonus track of Flowers classic, "Winter Waltz", specially performed by the New Zero God himself, Mike Pougounas, and Tsiri Band's Irene Tiniakou.

10. AUSTRIA

Karg - "Kira" (M&E 116, 1992)

The first album we released from the excellent Trost catalogue, sparking my great love of the Austrian underground scene of the time. A superb slice of inventive offbeat subterranean rock and beyond.

11. FINLAND

Pornorphans - "Seasoned With Love" (M&E 448, 1998)

A delightfully sleazy metallic psycherock version of Garbage, fronted by the imposing presence of underground bad girl, Jytt. Phew...

12. CANADA

Jaws Of The Flying Carpet -

"Live At The Whipping Post" (M&E 402, 1997)

An impressively coherent live set from these great masters of the improvisational arts, accessibly beyond description. Plus bonus tracks from Agent Yggdrasil and Ooöl Fjölkunnîgr & Pentatonic Noise.

13. THAILAND

Rotton Kidz - "Green Asia" (M&E 235, 1993)

The international co-operative's greatest Bangkok adventure, a fine mixture of ethnic Thai music with the western improvisations of the JOTFC members. Plus bonus track by Ooöl Fjölkunnîgr.

14. BELARUS

Zartipo - "Live" (M&E 302, 1995)

The excellent smoking experimental rock guitar work of Andrei Ivanou and compatriots, plus bonus tracks from the new album.

15. LITHUANIA

Ir Visa Tai Kas Yra Gražu Yra Gražu -

"Ir Visa Tai Kas Yra Gražu Yra Gražu" (M&E 091, 1992)

That kind of insanely offbeat rock / jazz / pop / folk thing that only seems to originate from eastern Europe, it's an absolute joy. Plus bonus tracks, both live and studio.

16. POLAND

The Witches - "Witchcraft" (M&E 214/347, 1993-96)

Simply enchanting gothic rock, beautifully crafted by sisters Izabella and Aleksandra, the latter tragically lost to us in 1997, sadly missed.
