Recorded at The Gatherings, St. Mary's Church, November 17, 2007 (part one)

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 albums, RMI have also released a number of very limited edition CDRs. The musical and sound quality of these releases is excellent; as good as their regular releases, but do remember that these are CDRs in simple, flat packaging.

Recorded at The Cherubini Center, Burlington, NJ 16th April 2010 for the Gagliarchives Radioshow.

"If you're at all familiar with our output, you'll have noticed that we sometimes release companion sets shortly after a title is published. Well,here's another one. Sessions began in late 2005 for what became Rain Falls In Grey Far away, and....

Recorded at The Greenhouse, Stockport, December, 2011.

Is RMI the most prolific band in the world? They might be. And they shockingly keep releasing great work. In addition to their many albums, RMI have also released a number of very limited edition CDRs. The musical and sound quality of these releases is excellent; as good as their regular releases, but do remember that these are CDRs in simple, flat packaging.

Interestingly enough, this release is a soundtrack to a documentary. There are 4 long-ish tracks (short by their standards, but still) and a bunch of very short tracks. But it still sounds like them!

"The only time this ensemble got together before was for the singular and legendary Wired session recorded in 1970 and published on the Deutsche Grammophon box set Free Improvisation in 1974. The Wired session also included Karl-Heinz Böttner while....

A completely legitimate reissue of the first album by A.R & Machines, which also happens to be the best-known and also one of the best of them. Achim Reichel is a mostly forgotten krautrock pioneer whose history traces back to The Rattles (Germany's...

"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.

Long out of print and impossibly rare, this tends to got for $40.00 and up when it can be found (http://tinyurl.com/y9hmkf). Reuter is a tap-guitarist who is probably best known for his work with the Europa String Choir, who released an album about...

"13 short pieces, which fall together as a sort of puzzle, sometimes odd and playful, sometimes rather intense. This international collaboration was conceived and recorded in one intense week at Robert Rich’s Soundscape studio in California. This is an...

First-time ever on CD for this Sky Record title from 1978. At the time, this was the height of modernity in its Kraftwerk-ness. Now it still is fine but boy-oh-boy, synthesizer technology sure has changed!

This was the first solo album by Roedelius, one half of Cluster and one third of Harmonia, two of the most significant Krautrock bands of the 1970s. In my opinion, this album is by far his greatest achievement as a solo artist (he has a zillion solo...

2nd and final album from the band's lifetime, which was releaesd in 1971 on Pilz, and is taken from the master tapes. Also included is 8 bonus tracks from their final concert in their hometown of Aachen, Germany, from 6/17/72....

I would basically agree with everything in the review below about this excellent and raw early progressive album, although I don't really think they sound so much like Tull at all - maybe a bit like This Was era, but just a bit. Lots of bonus live...

"Re-release of a German avantgarde-punk classic from 1981. Co-produced by Holger Czukay (Can) it was the counterpart of the Czukay album "On The Way To The Peak Of Normal", in which all the members of S.Y.P.H. also took part. The CD comes with booklet with unreleased photos and extensive liner notes by the S.Y.P.H. musicians Harry Rag and Jojo Wolter."

"Previously unreleased album by German trio Sand, recorded 1973-1982. Live events in the quarry and an archaic sound formed the background music of the young atomic age. In the meantime, after endless trance garage sessions, Sand drifted from the mythical landscapes to Berlin and mingled with various oriental influences. Vultures were scudding along the urban canyons while burning..

Legit reissue of a famously obscure (or obscurely famous) Krautrock proto-ambient classic from 1974, recorded with the 'artificial head stereo system' and produced by Klaus Schulze, who was probably just stopping by the studio to see if the band had some extra ciggies, as he had just run out...

"Originating from lower Saxony, the musicians of Sand were like many Berlin bands, being people drawn there by the unique possibilities Berlin had to offer. An early incarnation, as a five piece band...

"Previously unreleased album by German trio Sand, recorded in 1972. His First Steps is a forerunner of Golem, the legendary 1974 album from the cosmic and psychedelic genius that is Sand. After the split of P.O.T., the early Sand submerged as a threesome in the basement of Claudiusstrasse and built up an alchemical assembling shop, where they resurrected the archetypical Golem. Sand considered themselves as an exile community in a fascinating area -- full of distinctly bizarre energy. Cover painting by...
