"Smash the hegemony of dance. Stand still. Pere Ubu return with their first new studio album in over three years. The 35th anniversary of the group's debut (The Modern Dance). The album ushers in a new era in the history of Pere Ubu, with David Thomas...

Great performances and excellent, rockin' live sound.

"A great live recording of the sadly short-lived version of the band that existed between the arrival of Eric Drew Feldman and the departure of Chris Cutler. By far the best recording of the Scott, Cutler, Maimone rhythm section, I think, and the whole band is on intense concert form: David racked up to 11, Eric working equally on foundations and fine details as to the out-there manner born and Jim Jones somewhere in the stratosphere...

"Released by Hearthan, and exclusively marketed in North America by Smog Veil, Long Live Père Ubu! is the album of songs that was the genesis of the entire mess. It is a great leap forward in our pursuit of hyper-naturalistic recording techniques...

Originally released in 1989 and out of print for a number of years, this is 13 tracks from 3 live shows in good sound, from 1978, 1980 and 1981. Reissued here on David Thomas' Hearthan label. Especially in 1978, the band were really one of the greats o...

Fifth and final studio Ubu album until the band returned a number of years later with The Tenement Year. I saw them on this tour and they were fantastic, so even though the popular wisdom is that they weren't firing on all cylinders by this time...

Fourth Ubu disc has Mayo Thompson of Red Krayola joining on guitar and changing and making the sound less overtly rock based. Still some great stuff here!

After a number of very good self-released 45's, Pere Ubu found themselves signed to a hip 'new wave' subsidiary of a major label (Blank Records - which only lasted two albums) for this, the premier release on Blank. I saw their tour for this album at B...

This is a 2018 reissue of the sixth Pete Ubu album; the 1st after a six year layoff, and, imo, finds the reunited band of mostly originals, with a few 'new kids who do a great job' (I'm talking about YOU, Chris Cutler and Jim Jones!) in...

After a long layoff, David Thomas looked around at his then-current band "The Wooden Birds" and realized that they were basically Pere Ubu (Jim Jones-guitar, Tony Maimone-bass, Chris Cutler-drums, Allen Ravenstein-synths, Scott Krauss-drums) and...

"The natural affinity of music and visual art has rarely ever been expressed as vividly as in the visual imagery created by noted jazz saxophonist, Ivo Perelman. Born 12/01/1961 in Sao Paulo, Brazil, he came to the United States in 1981 to pursue a musica

"In the mid- to late 1990s, Ivo Perelman was recording frequently and freelancing for more than a few independent labels. So many trips to the studio might have been overkill for less interesting players, but Perelman had so much to say musically that...

1981 Welsh psychedelic/folk rarity (call it "new weird Wales"), which has traditional elements, as well as a goodly amount of electric guitar to give it the psych balance. Nice male/female vocals, acoustic guitars, flutes and more are used in addition ...

1983 Welsh psychedelic/folk rarity, which has traditional elements as well as a lot of electric guitar to give it that psych flair. This was the band's final album release; they had one more after this that was released on cassette only!...

"Welsh folk prog group Pererin are still not known to have released a 4th album in their career, and that's because it was only released on cassette, and most of the copies remained shelved without distribution. But it's a wonderful album and here we...

In the early 1980s, there was a small explosion of interesting and very unique progressive music coming out of Mexico. One of the paths being explored at that time was music that fused progressive music and ambient music with the instruments of pre-Hispanic Mexico; the sounds BEFORE the conquerors came and changed the continent hugely. The bigger names in the field were Suso Saiz and Jorge Reyes, but one of the first people to release a record that gained attention outside of Mexico was Luis Perez, who...

"Perfect Beings is an American progressive rock band formed in Los Angeles in 2012. They are known for their modern take on the sound of the classic progressive rock supergroup. Singer Ryan Hurtgen combines his incredible songcrafting skill with the talents of producer/guitarist Johannes Luley and keyboardist Jesse Nason. True to the progressive form, their albums are storied musical journeys through odd time signatures, avant-garde poetry, and symphonic mysticism. From 2012 through 2015, the group...

The 3rd release, probably their best, and a long time coming by this Italian progressive rock band firmly in the classic mold. The band are a quintet of piano and keyboards, guitar, bass, drums and vocals. Everything about this release says, "Yes...

Back in stock and at over 40% less than previously! If you didn't snap this up earlier, you should now!
Perigeo were an excellent, Italian jazz/rock band of the mid-late 70s. They released a number of really fine albums (none of their albums are sub-par). They are probably the best known Italian fusion band in the USA (a couple of their releases were even released in the US).

This is all four of the early electronic albums (The In Sound From Way Out, Spotlight on the Moog, The Amazing New Electronic Pop Sound, Moog Indigo) by Jean-Jacques Perrey and Gershon Kingsley or Perrey on his own, originally released in 1966-1970...

These two were pioneers in terms of introducing electronic music to a wider audience in the mid 60s, using early electronic instruments and synthesis in commercials and etc. Their music is extremely dated now, but also extremely charmingly so...

Shawn was the leader and main composer of the great Boud Deun. Since that time, he's done a lot of work in a lot of fields, and this fine little record is his latest release. Watch the video and if you like that, you'll love the entire thing here!

2nd solo release by guitarist Shawn (ex Boud Deun). This is a album of great solo & overdubbed acoustic guitar (ala Leo Kottke, his long-time hero) and vocals. The vocals don't do much for me (Leo's & Peter Lang's don't either), but I'm a sucker for "...

Shawn was the leader of the late, great Boud Deun, and since that band, has gone off in an unusual tangent of being a solo acoustic guitar artist. On this, his 3rd and best so far, he seems to have managed to combine the avant with the more traditional...

Pervy Perkin are a Spanish band from Madrid, who mix progressive rock with a metallic edge and come up with something a bit odd and also quite good.
This is the limited edition 2 CD version of their latest, which includes 4 bonus tracks.
For whatever reason, they make me quite a bit of Riverside and especially what Riverside would sound like if they decided to become a lot more wackier than they are.
