Rabbath, a Lebanese Frenchman, is one of the real virtuosos of the double bass. These two very early albums (1963 & 1964) show off his extraordinary technique on a series of solos as well as overdubbed duos trios and quartets with and without drums/pe...

Based in California, the Rabbinical School Dropouts is about as crazy as a group of kooks as one could wish for. Sun Ra, the Hampton Grease Band, Frank Zappa and the Klezmatics all rolled into one, the music of the Three Freidmann Brothers is fresh and...

“Rabbit Rabbit Radio is the song-spinning duo of Carla Kihlstedt and Matthias Bossi. Collectively, they are founding members of Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, Tin Hat, 2 Foot Yard, Causing a Tiger, The Book of Knots, and Fred Frith's Cosa Brava.
Drawing on their love of both art & folk song, industrial & improvised music and heart-wrenching balladry, their songs are raw, beautiful, sparse and rich. Originally these songs came out on the duo's bandcamp page. Subscribers got new songs as soon as they...

"What?? is a focused and grounding work produced by Swedish composer Folke Rabe in 1967. From his interest in sound phenomena and harmonics Rabe was able to make one of the most deep, moving pieces of sustained sound generated in this formative era of minimalist electronic composition. Initially reissued on Dexter's Cigar in 1997 and now available on Important with expanded packaging including archival materials furnished by the composer. Amplified infinity." "My interest in the makeup of various...

Here is a young trio of musicians from the Kansai area on soprano sax, bass and piano who have created a remarkably original world of sound. Although one can hear occasional influences from Steve Lacy and the Jimmy Giuffre Three, this music is uniquely...

Found a few of these hiding in a warehouse. Long out of print. Last time ever on this wonderful release from the wonderful, now gone, Reel Recordings label.

Great to finally be able to hear one of the great lost 1970s groups that everyone who follows this sort of thing had heard of (see who is on this below) but that no one had ever actually heard. With any luck, maybe someday I'll get to hear "Dolphin Logic"...

Thollem McDonas – keyboards
Nels Cline - electric guitars
Michael Wimberly – drums
Recorded by Justin Frye at Pioneer Works, Brooklyn, NY Sept. 13, 2017.

“This album was recorded during Thollem McDonas's 2017 residency at Brooklyn-based multi-discipline mecca Pioneer Works. It's the second by Radical Empathy, which combines three uncategorizable improvisors. Michael Wimberly has been astonishing folks since his days in Charles Gayle bands and Steve Coleman & Five Elements in the...

"Eliane Radigue's Adnos trilogy was composed between 1973 and 1980 and is among her finest compositions. Adnos is a deeply meditative work of infinite depth and sensitivity; one of the high points of modern minimal electronic composition. Packaged in...

“Double CD of all five of Elaine Radigue's songs in tribute to the Tibetan saint and poet from the 11th century. Two of the tracks dates from Radigue's first release in 1983, two are previously unreleased and the final 62-minute track was previously issued as a sole CD in 1987. The material is performed by Radigue (synthesizer and recording), Robert Ashley (English voice), and Lama Kunga Rinpoche (Tibetan voice). Radigue was born in France and has studied under Pierre Shaeffer and Pierre Henry; her music...

“Eliane Radigue's complete Opus 17 (1970), her finest and final work created using feedback, is contained on this double CD. With Opus 17, Radigue perfected her slow mixing technique with sublime results. Imperceptible transformations envelop the attentive listener who is confronted with an immensely physical experience. Time is suspended in powerfully poetic and artful ways as Radigue masterfully sculpts the physical matter of sound using feedback for the last time. Opus 17 is an absolutely essential...

"Includes liner notes & archival photographs. On the suggestion of Robert Ashley, Douglas Dunn commissioned this piece from Eliane Radigue for choreography. Only the first part of Triptych was staged at the premiere at the Dancehall/Theatre of Nancy on...

"Includes liner notes & archival photographs. 1970 was an important year in Eliane Radigue's musical life since it was the year just before she acquired her ARP 2500 synthesizer. Since 1967, she had been using the feedback as a material; feedback from...

After much, much too long silent, the stunningly prolific R.M.I. return with another set of wonderment.

"This hour long collage of Radio Massacre International material consists of previously unreleased material from various sessions between 2003-15, and might be seen as their version of `The Faust Tapes' in its construction. Endlessly fascinating, playing as a continuous suite, it is an unpredictable journey through many of the places RMI have found themselves in whilst working and improvising...

Recorded at the National Space Centre, Leichster, April 2, 2005.

Radio Massacre International is a unbelievably prolific British trio of Steve Dinsdale (keyboards, electronics, drums), Duncan Goddard (keyboards, electronics, bass) and Gary Houghton (guitar, synthesizers). These three musicians have worked together in various configurations since they were 16 year old students in the 70's and formed R.M.I. in 1993.

In addition to their many 'regular' albums, RMI have also released a number.

“In 2011 Radio Massacre International made their first appearance at St Clements church in Chorlton, Manchester. The gig has been documented on a [long out of print] DVD called M21 which featured highlights of the music played that night.
Many people have named this show as possibly their favourite RMI concert performance, and for a while we have thought about releasing it in full together [the DVD of the concert was abbreviated] with some remarkable and unheard recordings made during the preparation..
