Well it’s about time; after a three-year break from its initial run as a digital-driven reissues label, Mexican Summer’s Anthology Recordings imprint has relaunched with a round of physical releases. Up first on April 29: the “definitive edition” (including demos and interviews) of Parallelograms, the lost 1970 LP that made Linda Perhacs a cult favorite upon its discovery decades later and eventually led to a long-awaited return on Asthmatic Kitty, and Threat to Creation, a 1981 collaboration between Creation Rebel and New Age Steppers that features the punk-infused dub production of Adrian Sherwood and guest appearances from Ari Up (The Slits) and Keith Levene (Public Image Ltd.). According to a press release, “rarities from German synth composer Rüdiger Lorenz as well as The Stroke Band (members of The Unknowns, Gumball, Half Japanese) will soon follow, with many more gems on the way!”

In the meantime, here’s a short film about the story behind Parallelograms
