The Brazilian band Relogios de Frederico (The Clocks of Frederico) has been in existence since 1998. A septet who are very complex and unique, this is their first album, released in 2000. Lots of vocals on top of really complex music; this is very...

"This recording is a document of the third and fourth occasion of Dave Rempis, Tim Daisy, and yours truly convening to improvise together. (In Chicago at Elastic Arts and Hungry Brain, respectively.) Our first two meetings were captured and released on Cure for the Quotidian (Amalgam) and Hit the Ground Running (Aerophonic). Each time I play with Tim and Dave is a revelatory experience. A year ago, during the set at the Elastic Arts Foundation in.

“To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the formation of RENAISSANCE, vocalist ANNIE HASLAM and band performed a series of concerts with an orchestra in the USA in October 2019 featuring a set list which included songs which had never been orchestrated or performed with an orchestra before. The most memorable concert took place at the Keswick Theater in Glenside, PA on 12th October 2019.
This sold-out concert saw the band perform a set which included such classics as CARPET OF THE SUN, OCEAN GYPSY...

This wonderful recording captures in sound and vision a very special concert staged at the Keswick Theatre in Glenside PA, USA on 27th October 2017. Renaissance perform an extensive set of classic material with the Renaissance Chamber Orchestra, an ensemble especially formed for a series of American concerts.
Annie Haslam comments: “Renaissance has touched so many hearts across land and sea, for what seems to be most of a lifetime now, in the performance of this exquisite and unique music. I cannot...

This excellent sounding live recording was recorded at Nottingham University on January 24, 1976, finds the band at their popular peak, running through a number of their best known pieces in front of a happy audience.
This mixes folk, progressive rock, classical and various European influences, all fronted by Annie's quite spectacular vocals, in a pleasing

This was recorded on the reformed Renaissance's short-lived reunion tour in 2001. The core members of Annie Haslam, Michael Dunford and Terry Sullivan appear here, and keyboardist Micky Simmonds (who has played with Camel and many others) fills pianist/keyboardist John Tout's role extremely well, as well as 2 other players.
The pieces performed are mostly their classics, with a few titles from their studio comeback album "Tuscany", which are probably better done here than on that original album....

“A newly re-mastered and expanded 3CD clamshell box edition of the classic live album, “Live at Carnegie Hall” by RENAISSANCE.
Released in 1976, the double album documented a series of sold-out concerts at the Carnegie Hall in New York City staged in June 1975, which saw highly gifted vocalist Annie Haslam, Michael Dunford (acoustic and electric guitars), John Tout (keyboards, vocals), Jon Camp (bass, acoustic & electric guitars, vocals) and Terry Sullivan (drums, percussion) joined by the New York...

“Recorded at Abbey Road studios in May 1975, the album is rightly regarded as one of the band’s finest works, featuring the epic Song of Scheherazade (which dominated the album’s second side on the original LP release) and other classic tracks Trip to the Fair, Ocean Gypsy and The Vultures Fly High. Upon its release the album reached the US Top 50 and was one of the best-selling Renaissance albums.

"So folks.... after the deluxe editions of "Struve & Sneff" and "Songs For Swinging Larvae" we bring you the holy grail for RATL enthusiasts. The first ever release of the 1978 recordings: the "Tap Dancing In Slush" EP and the "Behind Closed Curtains"...

“After 30 years a new album by "The British Residents"
Possibly the thing in the world that you never expected to happen, but luckily you were wrong: Klanggalerie are proud to present you the brand new album by Renaldo & The Loaf.
30 years after "The Elbow is Taboo", Renaldo & Ted The Loaf have created another fabulous record. 13 songs in classic RATL style with an incredible cover by the wonderful Poxodd. All the RATL trademark sounds are there, but of course technology has not passed unnoticed.

“Renaldo and the Loaf is an English musical duo active since the late 1970s, consisting of a pathologist (David Janssen or Ted the Loaf) and an architect (Brian Poole or Renaldo Malpractice). By their own assertion, they achieved their unique sound in part by striving to get unnatural synthesizer-like sounds using only what instruments they had available (acoustic ones). To that end they routinely used muffled and de-tuned instruments, and, often to striking effect, tape loops and manipulation...

“People traveled from all over the world to see them. It was the first time RATL played a proper set and let me tell you, they were beyond amazing. The set consisted of songs old and new, and even a so-far unreleased track was presented for the first time ever. Of course, this unique event was recorded and here is Renaldo & The Loaf live at Klang25 in Vienna in 2018!”

"Renaldo & The Loaf need no long introduction. Often called the British Residents, the duo made some of the most wonderful music ever. Struvé & Sneff was Renaldo & The Loaf first ever album. It came out as a cassette in 1979 and was later re-issued on LP and CD. However, these versions contained a different mix to the one from the original cassette. Klanggalerie are now proudly presenting the original version of this outstanding debut album for the first time on CD!

And if that weren't enough...

"'The Elbow is Taboo' was Renaldo & The Loaf's fourth album and was released by Ralph in America, Torso in The Netherlands and Some Bizzare in the UK in 1987. You can hear a great technological step forward immediately. Also, the list of analogue instruments played on this album seems endless.

Included is one of their most popular songs, "Hambu Hodo" which was also released as a 12" single, and a cover version of the song "Boule!" by French band Ptose. Sadly, it turned out to be their last album..

“In 1967 the British guitarist and songwriter John Renbourn together with his friend Bert Jansch founded the British folk rock band Pentangle. Like Jansch, Renbourn was considered an outstanding representative of the British "Folk Baroque" and fingerpicking playing technique. Since 1968 Renbourn successfully recorded several albums with Pentangle for the well-known UK folk/folk rock label Transatlantic.
After the release of the album "Solomon's Seal" in 1973, the band members went separate ways...

"Jazz in Britain during the 1960s has found many musical voices speaking uniquely beyond their American inspiration, but few spoke as eloquently as the Don Rendell Ian Carr Quintet. Formed in 1964 by modernists Don Rendell (saxes/flutes) and the late Ian Carr (trumpet/flugelhorn), their quintet was perfected by the tremendous rhythm section of composer Michael Garrick (piano), Dave Green (double bass) and Trevor ...

The 3rd and 4th albums (both recorded in 1968) by this UK band, which is where Ian Carr, soon to spin off and help found jazz/rock with Nucleus, first gained the public's attention.
Carr (trumpet) and Rendell (flute, clarinet, saxes) Michael Garrick-piano, Dave Green-bass and Trevor Tomkins-drums + guests combined bits of 60's modal jazz and early 60's Ornette free jazz with a noticable Brit-jazz feel to arrive at something else. You can definitely hear traces of Nucleus in the melodic lines, but...

"Renku – the kindred-spirit New York trio of saxophonist Michaël Attias, bassist John Hébert and drummer Satoshi Takeishi – was named after a collaborative, improvised form of Japanese poetry that balances freedom and precision. The trio makes music like its name: searching and empathetic, thoroughly in the moment, resonant with meaning. Renku played a two-night stand at Manhattan’s Greenwich House in early 2014 to...

“Robert Rental was a British pioneer of the post-punk DIY industrial electronic music scene in the United Kingdom. Originally from Port Glasgow, Scotland, he moved to the south of England with Thomas Leer in the late 1970s, and became involved with the local music scene.

The only solo recording from The 1970s is the 7" single "Paralysis" first released on the...

"The first ever reissue of Requiem's For A World After, originally released in 1981. Dark, progressive, synth ambient meets Berlin-School sounds on this obscure kraut album, which "tells the story of a world annihilation through nuclear war." For A World After is full of delayed psychedelic electric guitar, effects, cold drum machines, waves of analog keyboards (Korg MS20, Casiotone 201, Crumar DS-2, Jupiter-4), and cosmic atmosphere.

This is very interesting, as it is the most complete set of recordings that you can buy (now or ever!) of the pre “Meet The Residents” recordings by the group.
There is a lot of interesting stuff here and it also shows you that, somehow, between these only slightly earlier recordings and the recording of “Meet The Residents”, they made a huge leap in what they were able to accomplish on their recordings.

“Released on CD for the first time, this set captures the group's earliest work - two...

This is a rarities collection of the Residents' work, and most interesting to me is the 1971 material, which I had previously heard on the Residents Radio Special, but didn't own until now as I wasn't a member of UWEB. Highly recommended for fans who don't already have this material.

"The Residents were in Europe touring their ICKY FLIX show when the bombing of the World Trade center took place September 11, 2001. Stunned, The Residents had no choice but to continue the tour as planes all over the world were grounded. Their only release came in the form of writing a new album on those long hours on the bus and in hotel rooms between shows. The album was one of loss and of helplessness. Sad weariness with the follies of human nature. This melancholy has always been present in...

"Over the years, The Residents have been so prolific that it's easy to see that a year could have simply vanished and gone unnoticed. And one did - 1997! In the early to mid 90's, The Residents were quite active in the creation of CD-ROMs, releasing Freak Show, The Ginger Bread Man, and Bad Day on the Midway from 1992-95. So much time was devoted to writing and designing the CD-Roms that, other than some soundtrack music for the game and a short side project, Pollex Christi, no music was recorded in 1996...
