“Absolutely superb listening to be had on 'Live In Tokyo'. Gig was recorded at the Doors Club in in Tokyo, Japan sometime in April, 2004.
Tunes that more than make this disc a keeper are first two minute-long wacky cuts "Gnome 11

"Without a doubt, this is one of the holy grails of the Japanese early seventies lysergic psych scene, together with Speed Glue & Shinki, Sato Masahiko & Soundbreakers and People/Ceremony.
Privately released in a tiny edition on the Oz Records label way back in 1973, the original artifact was and is till this day the only legitimate recording on vinyl to feature the Rallizes and Acid Seven, in addition to a side each from Minami Masato and the legendary Taj Mahal Travellers.
New double-CD ...

This great album has been out of print for quite some time. If you have been meaning to pick this up on CD, but haven't yet, we have six copies in stock!...

The second of their 2 'official' studio albums released during their lifetime. 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.
For me, this is the best studio album...

This is the third time that these very final sessions by Agitation Free have been issued, and this would seem to be the definitive version, with the best sound of any of the previous issues, as well as a bonus track. This is a big psychedelic jam from ...

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...

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...

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

Some nice middle Eastern touches give this one the big thumbs up! This new edition includes a bonus, unreleased 15' live track and...

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!...

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...

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.
This is a completely tuneful and charming mixture of European folk music, Canterbury...

Minor classic of German jazz rock, that I had heard a lot about, but had never actually heard. Now that I've heard it, I can say that the track "Simple Headphone Music" is very nice and *very* blantently rips off "Torrid Zone" off of the first Nucleus ...

Amazing! Finally the 27 year old 2nd album by this great Swedish progressive/space outfit. Unlike their classic first, this is more of a spacerock album, with hard-driving bass, drums, guitar & violin, in addition to the flute, mellotron/moog/organ...

Legendary cosmic CD from Sweden. ''Electronics, folk instruments, voice & other vibrations combine to make this a real space out. A truly unearthly work.'' A great, great pyschedelic/progressive disc, along the lines of early Amon Dl II, Ash Ra Tempel...

One of Daevid's better 1980's albums (this) was designed with a rich skien of background tapes over which he played live guitar.
I saw the tour he did based around the...

Now this is an interesting one, as it consists of the earliest surviving recordings (1967-1969) by Daevid and musicians after he ended up in Paris when he was denied re-entry into the UK following Soft Machine's summer sojourn to France. This was...

"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."

"This album represents the final album from legendary Daevid Allen, one of the most innovative music artists to emerge from this planet! Daevid Allen Weird Quartet is a recording project bringing together Daevid Allen, founder of The Soft Machine and Gong, with Don Falcone of Spirits Burning, Michael Clare of Daevid Allen's University of Errors, and drummers Trey Sabatelli (The Tubes) and Paul Sears (The Muffins). Elevenses is the second album by this band, following 2005's DJDDAY, which was released...

Originally recorded and released in 1966, this has long been considered one of the early high-watermarks of contemporary improvised music/sound.
AMM were one of the first completely non-idiomatic free improvising ensembles, and this was their very first releas

"Extracts from this were released as a 7" record on Incus as Incus EP1 AMM - At The Roundhouse
This is the first release of the complete concert
Recorded live in quad-sound at the International Carnival of Experimental Sound, London, August of 1972. This CD is encoded with ProLogic to allow playback in four channels, but will also play on a normal CD player."

Pyragony X was a transitional album with a generally different sound from earlier Duul works, more oriented to a general audience. Their 10th album, this is a typically thorough Garden of Delights job, undertaken on a somewhat slight release. [Garden o...

"Overhead comes this thrum-thrum-thrum. They look up to see a plane circling just off the island. The door facing them opens and out pop two figures, tumbling down into the water. Lazily, without a care in the world, the plane turns north and flies away. Of course, the guys start...

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...

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...

The first album from the band that I consider to be possibly the finest Italian progressive rock band of the 1970's, & certainly a band in the top tier of all early 1970's progressive bands worldwide! Area combined jazz/rock/stolen ethnic music (mostly...

The 4th album from the band that I consider to be possibly the finest Italian progressive rock band of the 1970's, & certainly a band in the top tier of all early 1970's progressive bands worldwide! Area combined jazz/rock/stolen ethnic music (mostly from Eastern Europe and the Middle East)/the avant garde and more. Superb playing from all (vocals/organ, guitar, electric piano/synths, bass & drums).
While everyone shines, the vocalist, the late Demetrio Stratos is rightly one of the legends of...

For me, Area were one of the very greatest of the 70s Italian progressive rock bands, and also one of the least typical, which is probably why I like them the best and many folks don't (insert wry smile here!)! This features the three surviving members...

One of the great 70's bands. Area combined jazz/rock/stolen ethnic music and more. This is their 5th & the last by the classic quintet line-up (vocals, keyboards, guitar, bass, drums). Not their absolute best, but still better than almost anything from the same era! Superb playing from all! Hugely recommended!

Cécile Thévenot – keyboards, sampler

Aria Primitiva is the new ensemble formed by Thierry Zaboitzeff, the long time co-leader of Art Zoyd.
They call it “electro symphonic art rock”, which it is! It’s also worth saying that the use of the Ondes gives this music a very unique sound, to say the least, but one that still has a lot of musical ties to Art Zoyd...

This was the 1st album by the successor band to Henry Cow, which was actually recorded AS a Henry Cow album but released as by Art Bears when some members of Cow didn't feel it was a "Cow" release.

This was the 3rd and final album by the successor band to Henry Cow. I'm not really sure why (short playing length? the press had gone onto other things to champion? it wasn't released stateside, unlike the first two?) but this one slipped under the radar of a lot of folks, compared to their 1st two.
It's a very bleak, but also a very solid work. And very clever and sly in its own way - who...

This was the 2nd and best known album by the successor band to Henry Cow, as it was released in the States by The Residents' Ralph label, in the early 80's and at the peak of their market influence at that time. With Dagmar Krause-vocals, Chris Cutler-drums, electronics & Fred Frith-guitars, keyboards, violin, etc. Songs with powerful lyrics built upon experimental kernels.

“Art Zoyd is a quartet, but their instrumental arsenal produces the sound of a mighty orchestra.”
The New York Times

“...the uncompromising classic 1982 opus Phase IV is justifiably considered one of the group's peak accomplishments. The Rock in Opposition co-founders marry dark, unsettling atmospherics à la Univers Zero to precise minimalist constructs with hints of Philip Glass or Steve Reich.”
AllMusic


This was a 1987 album and is the beginning of the band's heavy electronic influenced period. But a goodly amount of the acoustic instruments still remain; not a classic but still really good. The band is Patricia Dallio-pianos, keyboards, Gerard Hourbe...

One of the original R.I.O. groups. A mid 80's release that showcases their growing interest in electronics & in working with other artforms [dance, theatre, film]. With Theirry Zaboitzeff, Gerard Hourbette, Patricia Dallio, Daniel Denis. [In-Possible]

The latest from Art Zoyd is this double set in a handsome digi-pack that includes the 1:48' soundtrack to Fritz Lang's famous silent film, plus 2 additional tracks that make this CD weigh in at over 2 and a half hours of music. The current band feature...

The Artchipel Orchestra, led by conductor / arranger Ferdinando Farao, is a Italian big band (with 25 participants on this album) and Ferdinando is a big fan of the British jazz and jazz rock scene of the 70s, having previously covered tunes by Hugh Hopper, Alan Gowen, Robert Wyatt, Dave Stewart, Mike Westbrook & Fred Frith, among others.
For this, their third album, he has chosen to highlight the compositions of the late Lindsay Cooper. They band perform:
1. Half The Sky (from "Western Culture").

The incredible first album by this legendary Krautrock ensemble, remastered by Manuel Göttsching himself!
The incredible power trio (guitar, bass, drums) first effort from 1971 by Germany's Ash Ra Tempel has Manuel Gottsching (guitar), Harmut Enke (bass) and Klaus Schulze (drums - this is before he became a space music pioneer!). Great, over-the-top, psychedelic power rock.

"After a couple of aborted demo's Ash Ra Tempel decided to go to Hamburg and record an album proper, with the aid of...
