"Here is an item in Vinny Golia’s discography that gives a global sense to his life as an artist. Before being a musician, Golia was a painter. A very particular...

“The disc begins with, "That Was For Albert 10," Golia's tenor wrapping around Bradford's smearing trumpet for a repeating fanfare over the free range drums of Cline and the rambling pulsations of Filiano. Suddenly, the band contracts into "straight" time playing, just ahead of a dual solo by the two horns. Bradford finally breaks loose for a few laps around the field before Golia erupts with a massive tenor solo full of long lines broken up by well-timed screams.
"Otolith" has a vaguely...

Vinny Golia: soprano saxophone, piccolo
Bernard Santacruz: double bass
Cristiano Calcagnile: drums

“An international trio recorded live in Italy during their 2017 European tour. Three improvisers at their best.”

"Empiricism in the west" is a revelation, two amazing wind players - saxophonist, clarinetist and flautist Vinny Golia and saxophonist Urs Leimgruber - in a series of free improvising duos pushing their instruments into unusual and captivating territories.
The aim of this luxurious collaboration is to obtain a synergy of the sounds of all the instruments, keeping in mind all that the technique involves: circular breathing, search for dissonances, multiphonics, exaltation of acoustic dynamics...

"A supremely talented 5-piece progressive hard rock outfit from Kentucky. Originally released in 1972 on the Bridges label. The band always tight and composed, storms through 7 finely-crafted self-penned songs with flair and originality."...

"Gorgeous officially licensed US edition of this amazing mystical cosmic mind journey. Sergius Golowin is a Swiss author. In 1973 he got sucked into R.U. Kaiser's Cosmic Courier vortex and recorded this masterwerke. Over three long tracks Golowin provides spoken voice. The bed of music is provided by the Cosmic Jokers - Jerry Berkers, Klaus Schulze, Jurgen Dollase, Witthuser and Westrup, and Jorg Mierke. A melange of Mellotron, flutes, electric and acoustic guitars, and a variety of percussion.....

"First CD compilation of recent seven-inch and twelve-inch records by the enigmatic Wendy Gondeln, mixing electronic music, sawed violin, and Martian intelligence into a thoroughly spicy and utterly confounding goulash. Featured collaborations include Tim Berrescheim, Norbert Möslang, JB Slik, Wolfgang Voigt, and Michael Wertmüller. Projections also includes some of the art installation projects for Albert Oehlen works of recent vintage, such as "Alarm," composed by Wertmüller, well known among other...

Wendy Gondeln - violin, electronic treatments, and more
Mats Gustafsson - piano mate, saxophones, and live electronics
Wolfgang Voigt - editing and mix (track 3 and 8)
Martin Siewert - guitar and lap top guitar (track 1 and 7)

“In 2018, Mats Gustafsson provided raw saxophonic material for the elusive Wendy Gondeln, who sometimes applied a scalpel, sometimes a pneumatic drill, to rework, remix, reimagine all the Swede's squeaks, pops, blats, and tones. In some places, Gondeln adds....

"This is a great Gong reunion album. It was released in 1995 from a progressive rock festival in 1994. Most of the "original" members from the Radio Gnome Invisible days are here. The only major missing persons are Steve Hillage [more than ably subbed by Steffi Sharpstrings] and Pierre Moerlen (who was a late comer anyway). This double CD is about 110 minutes long. It is basically the Radio Gnome Invisible trilogy played in order, starting out with few songs the prequel Camembert Electrique...

"On the face of it, it's an old band's obscure latest album with only a couple of original members.
To most prog fans that's a familiar story, one that will immediately invoke a horrible mental montage of the many dusty, abandoned mid-90s CDs dwelling dormant and boring in your rack (or drawer, or pile if you prefer). But do not fear. 'Acid Motherhood' is a Gong album in every respect. It just has different people playing on it. That's all. Instead of Steve Hillage we've got Kawabata Makoto, an...

The middle disc of the Radio Gnome trilogy and filled with classics. The band is Daevid Allen-guitar/vocals/glissando guitar, Gilli Smyth-vocals, Steve Hillage- guitar, Tim Blake-synths, Didier Malherbe-saxes, Mike Howlett-bass & Pierre Moerlin-drums...

“Gong’s debut album for Virgin Records has been issued for the very first time from the original Virgin masters and remastered by the original producer, Simon Heyworth, and has been expanded with a previously unreleased concert recorded at The Bataclan in Paris in May 1973 plus 5 rare out-takes.”

The first of the Radio Gnome trilogy, which for many people stands as Daevid's crowning achievement. A great version of the band:
Daevid Allen-guitar/vocals/glissando guitar
Gilli Smyth-vocals..

The 2nd post-Daevid Allen release by Gong, and I think most people would agree that it is the best of them. A fantastic album of mallet-percussion driven fusion, headed by an amazing all-star cast: Mireille Bauer/Benoit Moerlin-vibes/marimba, Mino Cine...

No, this isn't the reunion show album, this is a compilation of 14 tracks taken from prime-period Daevid Allen-led Gong, from Camembert Electrique through Flying Teapot, Angel's Egg and You. Stupid cheap price if you want to sample this great 70s...

"Inspired by the light, love and passing of our dear friend and inspiration, Daevid Allen."-Dave Sturt

Could it happen? Should it happen?
Daevid wanted it to happen, so, yes. It should.

"Featuring the voice of Daevid Allen on two songs and guest appearances from Steve Hillage and Didier Malherbehe, Rejoice! I'm Dead! is the 2016 release (and 28th album) from the enduring legend that is Gong.
Gong has entered yet another new phase in its four-decades plus journey with Rejoice! I'

This was the album that the band released after founder Daevid Allen split. Most of the gang are still here (Mike Howlett-bass, Didier Malherbe-saxes/flutes, Pierre Moerlin-drums/percussion + Mirelle Bauer-mallet percussion & Patrice Lemoine-keyboards ...

“Gong’s 4th album for Virgin Records from 1975 has been remastered from the original Virgin masters for the very first time by Simon Heyworth at Super Audio Mastering and expanded with a second disc containing a previously unreleased concert recorded live at the London Marquee in September 1975 plus 3 previously unreleased edits.“

“I've heard other old-school Gong fans rave about how good this live CD is. Show took place at the Sesi Theatre in San Paulo, Brazil on November 20, 2007.
Thoroughly enjoyed the rocking "Radio Gnome Invisible", the awesome eleven-minute epic "Fohat Digs Holes In Space" (going back a way's, there), "Oily Way", the incredibl


Some of you may remember Delia Gonzalez from "The Days Of Mars", her joint work with Gavin Russom, which is a great, modern day electronic music album that channels 1971-1975 but in an original way and think: Mother Mallard's Portable Masterpiece Co. (that's the main sound I hear), Klaus Schulze, Tangerine Dream, Manuel Gottsching.
After a very long time off and one solo piano album, she's back with this, a similar electronic album and one that is also hugely recommended by me if you like the 1st two..

"A work nearly five years in its evolution, In Remembrance is Delia Gonzalez's first major project since she ended her collaboration with Gavin Russom to focus on her fine art career. Beginning as a set of 16mm films of ballet dancers accompanied by solo piano compositions, Gonzalez found inspiration for the piece in inspiration itself: In Remembrance celebrates the creative spark and clarity that make art possible in its hypnotic music and visuals. Her four piano pieces were influenced by spiritual...

“In Pas(s)ing was Mick Goodrick’s recording debut as leader, after some years with Gary Burton and before that, a spell with Woody Herman. Never very tigerish about self-promotion, Goodrick has spent most of his life teaching in Boston: Jazz Times has called him “perhaps the most influential mentor in the history of jazz guitar.”
This 1978 production..

Modern pop from the vocalist of Doves, with a definite emphasis on experimentation within the form.

"Odludek, the solo debut from Doves' Jimi Goodwin, makes up for what it lacks in consistency of tone with a pioneering spirit that both mocks and celebrates the digital age. Genres be damned, Goodwin is at his heart a world-weary Brit-pop songsmith in the vein of Elbow's Guy Garvey, and there is some of that to be found here, but for the most part, Odludek's ten largely disparate tracks play like...


Sam Gopal took up the tabla in Malaysia at the age of 7, before coming to study music in Britain in 1962. Sam Gopal put together his first group, 'Sam Gopal's Dream' in 1966. They quickly became a feature of the psychedelic scene, playing at the 14 Hour Technicolour Dream at Alexandra Palace in 1967 and sharing stages with such giants as Pink Floyd, the Move and Jimi Hendrix. Indeed, Jimi jammed with them during a gig at the Speakeasy in January 1968.
However, whilst successful live, the band went

"Over the course of a decade, Bang on a Can founding composer Michael Gordon has collaborated with the world-renowned Kronos Quartet on a series of provocative works that have sought to stretch, bend and otherwise reshape the boundaries of modern classical music.
