Nurse With Wound List

Excellent sounding live concert recording of Achim revisiting with obvious great affection, his tripply, early 70s sound. Who imagined this could happen? Not me!

“In my opinion, A.R. & Machines' Green Journey is one of the most musically important albums of all time in Germany. This live recording from 2017 is great. The whole thing doesn't sound quite as crazy as it did in the seventies, but it is unmistakably Achim Reichel and Machines. Personally, I really like this recording. There is...

The second of their 2 'official' albums released during their lifetime. Recommended and essential early 70s German progressive rock.
Agitation Free were an instrumental, dual guitar oriented, somewhat 'jammy' oriented psychedelic/Krautrock outfit. In addition to the guitar, they are best known for giving the world synthesist/keyboardist Michael Hoenig.
This adds bouzouki, mellotron, 12-string guitar to their twin guitar, "Krautrock meets the most out moments of the Grateful Dead" sound.

Vinyl edition limited to 1,000 hand-numbered copies! This album consists of the very final sessions by Agitation Free. This is a big psychedelic jam from a lot of different members of the group from the different lineups of the band, including...

Agitation Free were an instrumental, dual guitar oriented, somewhat 'jammy' oriented psychedelic/Krautrock outfit. In addition to the guitar, they are best known for giving the world synthesist/keyboardist Michael Hoenig.
At their best, they combined spacey Krautrock with the most 'out' moments of the Grateful Dead at their most cosmic.
The band only managed to release two studio albums during their lifetime and a number of archival releases.
"Last" was a posthumous live release of 1973...

A fantastic legitimate release from the master tapes of a famous German radio broadcast from 2/2/74. This was released by Garden of Delights a few years ago as "At the Cliffs of the River Rhine" and was one of their best-ever archive releases. This features the group at their peak, with dueling dual guitars, Michael Hoenig's electronic backdrops, bass & drums. Similar to 'Last', but even better - and that's REALLY saying something! Here they really do come across as the Cosmiche Music's version of the...

Back in print and back in stock. This is a winner!

One of the greats of the Krautrock greats, their intertwining dual guitars with synths and rhythm section made them truly the intergalactic Grateful Dead. Nice to see that they are still burning and - based on this - burning brightly!...

This certainly qualifies as one of the least likely comeback albums ever!

“The legendary experimental pop outfit returns with a brand-new record entitled Figures, written, conceived and produced over the last couple of years by Marc Hollander (founder of Aksak Maboul and of the Crammed label) and Véronique Vincent (former singer with The Honeymoon Killers).

UNBELIEVABLE. This is one of the albums that heads many, many people's 'please issue this on CD' list, including mine. This was the first album of two by Aksak Maboul (later changed to Aqsak Maboul, just to fool people), which really wasn't a band, but...

“During the year which followed the release of the Figures double album, 14 artists have revisited or remixed songs from Aksak Maboul's acclaimed "comeback" opus. Participants include experimental pop luminaries The Notwist (DE), Cate Le Bon (GB), Kate NV (RU) and Vanishing Twin (GB), respected electronic music artists Felix Kubin (DE), Tolouse Low Trax (DE), Hello Skinny aka Tom Skinner (Thom Yorke's new bandmate in the Smile project, GB), Matias Aguayo (CL/DE) and Stubbleman aka Pascal Gabriel (GB/BE)...

“Fifteen artists revisit the tracks AND the cover art of Aksak Maboul's latest album 'Figures'!
Ranging from simple remixes to reconstructions and cover versions, these 18 tracks are released on two separate, limited-edition vinyl LPs.
In order to extend the fun (and the metaphor in the title), Aksak Maboul have asked the contributors to also revisit Véronique Vincent’s painting which adorned the front cover of the album.
The participants include experimental pop luminaries The Notwist...

This original generation Rock In Opposition classic is beautifully presented here, with a large format photo and texts booklet telling the story of the band during this era AS WELL AS including the CD "Before And After Bandits", which includes a ton of live and demo material, all of it unreleased, and in 'significantly better than I expected it to be' sound quality, considering the era it is from and it's scarcity, and which is ONLY available with this lp!

This was the first album of two by Aksak Maboul (later changed to Aqsak Maboul, just to fool people), which really wasn't a band, but just a studio project, mostly consisting of Mark Hollander-piano, Farfisa organ, Fender Rhodes piano, alto sax, bass clarinet, clarinets, circa 1977 primitive drum machine, etc. with Vincent Kenis-guitars, bass, piano, accordion and a few other guests on voice, guitars, etc.

“Double CD of live acoustic gigs with Didier and the all female band; This is in fact a recording of Daevid Allen's Invisible Opera Company Of Tibet during the band's European tour, released under Allen's name only.
These CDs are drawn from two concerts: Daevid's first major gigs in London at the Tabernacle in Nottinghill Gate and in France at Toulon, which was also Daevid's first encounter with Didier Malherbe (Bloomdido Bad de Grasse) since the heady Gong days of '74/'75.
Some of these...

"This compact disc contains the full version of the 'Death Of Rock' EP, issued on Shangai Records in 1982. The other four tracks are all previously unreleased material."

"A charming poetic hodgepodge this, allowing the Gong shaman Daevid Allen...

This is a solo album from the period when Daevid was living in Australia and working solo. It was designed around Daevid's guitar and voice and some taped accompaniment from guests; it's also one of the earliest Voiceprint releases...

This is both of two albums that joined Daevid with multi-instrumentalist Kramer.
I saw one of their shows and they worked really great together. Kramer put a little bit of edge into Daevid's whimsy, but it was also really clear that both musicians really liked each others' work, despite the apparent differences in style and approach.
Both of these collaborations are some of the best of Daevid's 90s work, I think.

“Previously released in 1980 on David Toop's Quartz label at a time when improvised music in London was settling into a long spell of excellence.
The players here are Steve Beresford, Peter Cusack, Terry Day, and David Toop. Terry had been a member of The People Band in the '60s, one of the groups forming part of the first wave of British improvisation. The rest of the group could be regarded as pioneers of a second generation of improvisers who emerged out of the explosion of musical development...

This reissues the first Anima lp, which originally came out on Ohr in 1971, and must have filled many unsuspecting, tripping 'heads' with bummers, dude. "The duo of Paul and Limpe Fuchs were amongst the most experimental to emerge out of the late-60s a...

“About this record and how Limpe and Paul Fuchs got together with Friedrich Gulda:

In 1968, the Austrian classical and jazz pianist Friedrich Gulda organized the First International Music Forum of Ossiachersee with the theme "Improvisation in Music -- Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow". During the third edition of the festival, Gulda got to know the band Anima Sound and was fascinated by their "absolute free music", which they played on home-made instruments.
Anima Sound was Limpe and Paul...

Never before released recordings from 1973!

“Limpe Fuchs studied piano, violin, and percussion in Munich, but all changed in the late 1960s when she met sculptor Paul Fuchs and discovered there was much more space to experiment and discover her own way as in the sculptural environment she had the chance to work directly with materials. Paul first built a horn as a sculpture (the famous Fuchshorn) and started experimenting with its sounds. Then he built a pedal kettledrum adding things to it like...

"The second and the last album by Annexus Quam originally released in 1972 on the Ohr label. Sound engineer: Dieter Dierks."

Three guitarists, three generations, one album. Günter Schickert, Jochen Arbeit, and Dirk Dresselhaus are all renowned Berlin guitarists. They epitomize three generations of experimental musicians; Schickert personifies the krautrock of the 1970s, Arbeit 1980s post-punk, and Dresselhaus the neo-electronica of the late 1990s and 2000s. Their artistic approaches may differ according to their diverse musical backgrounds, yet what they have in common is a fundamental interest in developing the guitar as a...

At its best, this actually really does sound like the great Archemedes Badkar actually BEING great. At its worst, it kinda sounds like the Dead.

Received direct from label, unsealed and outer box has some shelf wear. It's not bad, but could be better. I guess that's how these come now, so it is what it is. You have been warned. The box and the booklets are really beautifully done. Now here comes the party line:
