A Return Visit to the HERU AVENGER Archives!

This past Monday, fellow RENDEZVOUS! resident AM (a.k.a. George Ben Sun) and I made a return visit to record collector extraordinaire (and good friend) John Basil's (a.k.a. Heru Avenger) home. We spent our time there flipping through his enormous record collection**, listening to tunes, going "ooh and aah" over his insane VHS and literature collections, and even making some trades! Check out these snapshots from our visit...
(**NOTE: ALL records in his collection are original pressings!)

Henry Clearstar RENDEZVOUS! DJ Set (from 6 June)



Ubiquity Records' Henry Clearstar returned to RENDEZVOUS! on 6 June 2012 to drop another incredible set of tunes sourced from all original vinyl. Unfortunately, I don't have a tracklist, but I'm sure you'll recognize a few tracks. I do know that it starts off with "Space Woman" by Herman's Rocket (J.P. Massiera). It's an amazing selection of disco-funk-psych...you just have to check it out!
