Noseflutes - The Ron Johnson 12"s



Another interesting band on Ron Johnson. They remind me a bit of The Nightingales. They add a lot of percussion in some of the tracks and some of these have an African feel.
Prior to the Ron Johnson records, Noseflutes released the 'Girth' 12" and 'Several Young Men Ignite Hardboard Stump' LP on Reflex Records (Very Things, And Also The Trees,...). After Ron Johnson folded, the band released another two albums on their own Rictus label: 'Zib Zob And His Kib Kob' and 'Mellow Throated'.
There was a site on Noseflutes but it's gone but I found an interview for No Class fanzine here.
'The Ravers' 12" is a John Peel session.

Hi, thanks for posting these rarities. I've tried to download them but it doesn't seem to work. It might be Mediafire because the files are there.

I think it's a server problem. Hope it gets solved soon. Otherwise I'll up them again. Will check later.

I dunno if you can bothered to re-up files these days, but if you do then PLEASE re-up your Nosefutes posts - they were a fantastic band, their stuff is virtually impossible to find, & (ahem) my hard-drive went down a while ago, so I lost a lot of great music like this... (cheers) ;)

Hi Rooksby, I'll try to re-up all Noseflutes in the coming days, OK?

The 12"s of Noseflutes are up again. The files of the albums are lost so need to get those from cdr. Have some patience.

Much appreciated - with blogs dropping like flies these days stuff like this is at risk of disappearing altogether it seems, thanks for the re-up. :)
