Somewhere between jazz and electric jazz, it doesn’t sound very much like Area at all, despite the lineage, but it certainly sounds very good!

“Born as a jazz group in 2017, after long years of experience with stable famous collaborations, stages and recording studios, the Three Generations Caligiuri-Tavolazzi-Capiozzo record their first work...

“The origins of Three Point Circle go back to 1980, when K. Leimer, Marc Barreca, and Steve Peters met for two sparsely-attended shows in Olympia, WA. Some forty years later, they have regrouped as Three Point Circle.
Perhaps better described as a process than as a musical group, Three Point Circle has developed a collaborative system that replaces standards of improvisation and authorship with a new, independent, compositional identity removed from the individual habits and traits of the members...

"With the raw energy of rock music, freedom of improvisation, and circularity of electronica, Three Trapped Tigers conjure the contained intensity of their namesake. Inspired by artists like Aphex Twin and Autechre, Tom Rogerson (keyboards, electronics, vocals) formed the band in London with Matt Calvert (guitar, synthesizer, electronics) in 2007, aiming to capture the Warp Records vibe in a live format."

"Like Battles but without the cumbersome Brooklyn connection, Three Trapped Tigers play...

"Three Winters draws on diverse influences from Tangerine Dream to John Carpenter to Death In June to create a cinematic, dark and majestic sonic experience. Think 80s sci-fi and horror flicks with pulsating, neon glowing soundtracks and you're halfway...

"The past year’s lockdown has proved undeniably challenging to improvising musicians who typically thrive on face-to-face interaction. But bassist Mike Watt, drummer/percussionist Mike Pride, and guitarist/banjoist Brandon Seabrook have all built their careers on kicking down the barriers between genres, so why would they let a little pandemic-induced isolation and...

The debut by this chamber trio of 2 guitarists & a cellist. Incorporating elements of improvisation into their compositions, they also use non-Western instrumentation & techniques; Indian, Indonesian & Cuban elements are all apparent. Interestingly...

Unless you were there, I can not begin to explain just how controversial TG were back in the late 70s. This, along with the included single, were their opening salvos and actually may be their best work. The pioneers of noise music in rock.

"For the first time in 30 years, Throbbing Gristle are now back on their own original Industrial Records label. Industrial Records -- the sole representative of, and only official label representing and releasing records by the band -- present the re-release...

"Originally released in 1979, 20 Jazz Funk Greats is Throbbing Gristle's pop-influenced masterwork. It's hard to believe the beautiful, conventionally-attractive Cosey Fanni Tutti on this album's front cover previously gave herself milk and blood...

“This release is the infamous live show recorded at Throbbing Gristle’s 2004 performance as part of Jake and Dinos Chapman’s All Tomorrow’s Parties festival line up. The performance and CD were both dedicated to their dear friend and co-conspirator, John Balance, who passed away in November 2004.
The CD-R set was on sale minutes after Throbbing Gristle finished performing. The few remaining copies of this limited edition set were briefly available through Mute Records, but quickly sold out. This is...

“Part Two: The Endless Not was originally released in 2007, and was the band’s first full length studio record in 25 years.
Pitchfork wrote, “The Endless Not features some of the subtlest songwriting of TG’s career, playing that knot of tension for all its worth and all the more disturbing for how pensive and restrained it feels”. PopMatters said that the album “sounds like a core of musicians who have rediscovered whatever spark it was that led them to create the entity that they are now so often...

"It's impossible to deny Throbbing Gristle's working methods and innovation are so deeply ingrained in the collective consciousness of... everything. TG's subversive dismantling of the apparatus of social control casts such a long shadow, and as...

Fourth and great album by this spacerock band. I say band, but it's just a duo of Matthew Smith-guitars, trumpet, bass, organ, vocals and Kerry Gluckman-drums, percussion. Despite the fact it's just the two of them, this has a total band sound and it's...

When I first started Wayside Music, Steve was one of the very first musicians with a self-released album (actually two self-released albums) who contacted us trying to get us to buy some copies.
I was greatly impressed with his work then and I remain greatly impressed now. This covers releases from 1980-2018, and it all is a diverse and wonderful body of work. Most of his original albums are long out of print, so this is a good way to learn about one of the greatest of ECM’s post-70s artists. Hugely..

First new one from Steve in a very long time and it's great! Mostly acoustic guitars, with long time partner Marc Anderson on percussion and Michelle Kinney on cello and drones.

"One-of-a-kind guitarist and record-maker Steve Tibbetts has an association with ECM dating back to 1981, with his body of work reflecting that of an artist who follows his own winding, questing path. The BBC has described his music as an atmospheric brew… brilliant, individual. Life Of, his ninth album for the label...

Steve Tibbetts: 6 and 12 string guitars, kalimbas, tape loops
Marc Anderson: congas, bongos, percussion

“Steve Tibbetts’ first ECM session found the Minnesotan guitar player journeying with faithful percussionist Marc Anderson to Oslo in 1981, to make what might be his most stark and inner-directed recording, etching sounds in silence. “There is nothing in this music (with titles such as “The Big Wind,” and “Walking”) to hang any defining label on”, commented the Oakland Tribune. “It has....

From their first live performance in 1972, it was seven years before Tibet released their sole lp. By the time of their lp, they were a six piece: Klaus Werthmann (vocals), Deff Ballin (keyboards), Dieter Kumpakischkis (keyboards), Karl-Heinz Hamann (bass), Fred Teske (drums, percussion, guitar, vocals) and Jurgen Krutzsch (guitars). Fans of the Hammond organ will be delighted because there is an obviously strong keyboard dominance on this album. There are loads of organ solos, several synth solos and...

“Asmus Tietchens is a sound artist and composer from Hamburg, Germany. He got interested in Musique Concrete by listening to a German radio programme when he was 10 years old. In 1965, at the age of 18, Asmus started experimenting with tape loops and turned them into musical collages. Soon, the use of synthesizers was added.

“Asmus Tietchens, one of the most prolific German composers in the Electronic / Musique Concrete direction since late 70`s. BLEICHE BRUNNEN is his 3rd album on STILLE ANDACHT, the sublabel of DARK VINYL. Electronic music of extreme abstraction. Sounds and noises far from human beings from pale, forgotten wells. Porous remains in deserted landscapes, crystalline evidence of inorganic states of highest transparency. The music conveys calm, but in no way invites contemplation.
For fans of...

2020 initially promised to be a busy year for Pete Jones, with an album already recorded in January and various gig commitments with Tiger Moth Tales, Red Bazar, Francis Dunnery's It Bites and his usual pub & club gigs. But, Covid-19 put paid to a lot of plans, as it did for most musicians.
‘Still Alive’ is Jones's take on the lockdown situation, and will no doubt appeal to the mixed emotions felt by many of us throughout these difficult times.

"This is not the album I had previously planned

"Although for Pete Jones 2018 was largely dominated by his participation as a singer, keyboardist and saxophonist on the tour of progressive rock legend Camel, he still found the time and space to work on new songs for Tiger Moth Tales. This results in the album Storyteller Part Two, in which Jones returns to composing music based on stories from some of his favorite youth authors, this time including Hans Christian Andersen and A.A. Milne.
