SUN RA and the ARKESTRA - JAZZ SESSION DVD
This startling black and white portrait of Sun Ra and his Arkestra is possibly the finest film of the band ever - even surpassing the film 'Space is the Place' in its details of how the tribe conjures the purest magic from musical instruments, costumes and science fiction truths.
Captured on January 8th 1972 during a short stop in France on the way back to Oakland, California after the Autumn/Winter 1971 European and Egyptian tours - this flawless video recording has been seen by few - even the most hardcore collectors of Sun Ra material. Produced and Directed by Bernard Lion

THE BLOODY COUNTESS: Atrocities of Erzsebet Bathory: By Valentine Penrose /Translation Alexander Trocchi
THE BLOODY COUNTESS: Atrocities of Erzsebet Bathory
By Valentine Penrose - Translated by Alexander Trocchi
Descended from an ancient aristocratic European family, Erzsebet Bathory bore all the psychotic characteristics of centuries of inner family breeding. From early adolescence she indulged in sadistic lesbian fantasies - where only the spilling of others female blood could satisfy her urges.
By middle age, she had regressed into a mirror fixated state and was practicing necro-sadism, torture, cannibalism, vampirism, wholesale slaughter, blood bathing and witchcraft. These years, in the late 16th century, would witness a reign of cruelty unsurpassed in the history of mass murder, with an estimated 650 deaths attributed to the 'Bloody Countess'.
Her many castles were all equipped with torture chambers where she would torture and mutilate her many victims - virtual killing factories where hundreds of girls were killed and processed - the Countess would bath in their virgin blood - believing it would preserve her youth and beauty.
