Always August, a mysterious band despite being part of SST Records, author of 2 albums, Black Pyramid in 1986 and Largeness With (W) Holes in 1987 (their only work in CD format) and a mini lp, Geography. in 1988, all really fascinating, were inexplicably previously underestimated and then forgotten by everyone. A psychedelic sound sometimes jazzed with glances at the new age, we may call it kaleidoscopic.
To listen carefully, possibly in headphones to enjoy it completely, There are some minor defects that I could not fix, but even a vinyl is never perfect. sorry ... I personally judge it a small / great masterpiece
Enjoy!

  2. First time I see this in a blog. They really were a superb and original band. And they remains obscure. Do you have other records of them? Thanks.

  3. Yes, I also have the other 2 albums, the mini Geography will post it after the Christmas holidays, along with other requests like The Laughing Soap Dish - Under The Overground - 1990, Pikes In Panic - Keep It Cool And Dry - 1987, The Event - This Is The Event - 1989 and The Thanes - Thanes Of Cawdor - 1987

  4. WOW! Thank you for your kind answer. The Laughing Soup Dish were a superb band as well, with a personal and unique sound. Your blog is really great. Keep up the good job. Cheers.

  6. Thank you all for the kind words. I was the bassist for Always August (and currently play saxophone in the band HOTEL X, a band which formed in 1992, is still very actively playing, and released our first 6 discs on SST), and can happily say that playing in the band was a real labor of love for all of us. We are still close friends. Here's a recent interview with singer/guitarist John Kidder discussing our forming the band, and this album in particular:https://m.soundcloud.com/mojackpod/078-always-august-black-pyramid-w-john-kiefer

    1. Hi Tim, just found Largeness today, your bass particularly stands out, very tasty playing. Thanks!

  7. Thanks to you Tim, it makes me really happy, I post jobs released only on vinyl by artists I love.
    A comment from an "Always August" recharges me for a long, long time.
    I hope the sound satisfies you.
    In the future I have to post the other 2 albums, both exceptional as the first one.
    I didn't know that another band was born, unfortunately on Discogs of Always August no note is indicated and this has prevented me from knowing Hotel X, but now I will fix it.
    Cheers!
