SUARA NAGA- RARE Italian Import edition clear vinyl with book and original drawing
This is the very rare Italian import edition of "Suara Naga" by Arrington de Dionyso's Malaikat dan Singa- published by Interbang Records from Milan/Berlin in 2011, this edition is pressed on clear vinyl with a beautifully printed gatefold cover and includes a full color 28 page art book inside the album.
Because this is such a rare item in the US, I will also include a small handmade drawing (black ink on white paper, around 9x11 inches give or take). I also have limited copies of the original promo posters, I'll include those as well until they run out of stock.
This is a great way to get an inexpensive original piece of artwork along with a record.
MORE INFO- Originally released as K Records KLP 226 in 2011.
"Suara Naga" is Indonesian for "The Voice of the Dragon" and this classic album was the second of the "Malaikat dan Singa" albums, which lead to helping me make many connections in Indonesia, with many invitations to organize tours and other performances and collaborations with local musicians.
Arrington de Dionyso's 2011 album Suara Naga [KLP226] is a pleasant balm for any creative spirit.
By "pleasant", I mean incendiary.
By "balm", I mean Cro-Magnon regressive.
By "any", I mean freaks only.
By creative", I mean dangerous.
And by "spirit" I mean the flames of Hell and the flowers of Eden entwined upon the nuptial sofas of pleasure.
By "spirit", I mean wearing grooves in the floor boards of your dirty mind.
By"spirit", I mean that part of you that either heeds the call or gets destroyed.
By"spirit", I mean this force coursing through your corporeal privates.
By "spirit", I mean a mystical draft.
By "spirit", I mean fermented juice.
By "spirit", I mean a sharpened stick rammed through an animal.
By "spirit", I mean you really don't need any more music, this one alone will do.
By "spirit", I mean a catalyst for your art.
By "spirit", I mean, SPIRIT!
Now get out there and play this album at full volume while doing something good.
This is the second Arrington de Dionyso's Malaikat dan Singa album, the first is entitled simply Malaikat dan Singa [KLP215] and was released in 2009.
"Malaikat dan Singa" means "Angels and Lions", "Suara Naga" means "The Dragon's Voice".
All of the lyrics on both records are in Indonesian, which Arrington taught himself specifically for this project.
The album was recorded at Dub Narcotic Studio in Olympia, with an all-star cast including members of LAKE and Angelo Spencer et les Hauts Sommets. The record was produced by Karl "The Genius" Blau.
You know how in the 1950s the press and parents and such talked about how rock'n'roll had some evil, sexual, tribal force that was going to possess the youth? Arrington de Dionyso's Malaikat dan Singa is really that. Trance-punk dancehall explosion gonna knock you up! 2011!
