Nurse With Wound List

This is kind of an amazing thing. This is a previously unreleased live tape in extremely good sound, considering its rarity and age, from 1971 in Wuppertal, Germany. I was talking to Ken Golden about the early German stuff and whether or not you like...

"Zwei Osterei is the second half of a recording session which took place on a single day in November 1970. Klopfzeichen is the first part. Yet the uncompromising Zwei Osterei surpasses the earlier Klopfzeichen album by some distance in terms of its...

"Takehisa Kosugi is an inter-media artist and performer who started his career back in the '60s in Tokyo. With his first band Group Ongaku (free anarchist-conceptual improvisations) he was introduced to the Fluxus avant-garde movement. During the '70s...

While this is one of those basically awful "unauthorized biography" type things, I decided that we should stock this when a friend told me that he had bought it and it was really as much a history of Krautrock as it was a history of Kraftwerk. There is...

EU, copy controlled version. To many this won't matter, but to some it might, so just FYI.

"Among electronic artists (as well as virtually the entire record industry), only Kraftwerk could construct a viable album by making only minimal adjustments to a sound they made definitive more than 30 years earlier. Tour de France Soundtracks, the group's first record in more than 15 years, is quintessentially Kraftwerk but still fits in well with contemporary dance trends like the experimental microhouse

All previously unreleased duets recorded between 1982-94, & featuring the soprano sax master with Derek Bailey, Bobby Few, George Lewis, Steve Potts, Roswell Rudd, Masahiko Togashi, Mal Waldron & others.

"The first in a series of recordings from Steve Lacy's cassette archive- authorized by Irene Aebi. When Steve Lacy passed away in June, 2004, he left behind an archive of more than 300 private recordings – mostly cassette tapes of concerts dating from...

This has a number of good titles by the great man that have been hard to find for a number of years. Lacy is someone I came late to, and for whom his huge discography is utterly overwhelming. But I've got a bunch now that I really treasure. So, if only...

This has Steve's run of amazing recordings on Black Saint/Soul Note of quartets and larger bands and features great players like Roswell Rudd, Beaver Harris, JJ Avenel, Mish Mengelberg, Han Bennink, George Lewis and many, many others...

Third & final of the original three Lard Free albums. Lard Free, led by Gilbert Artman, were a legendary, early progressive/avant/electronic instrumental group. Along with Heldon this is as close as the French came to "krautrock". This is probably my personal favorite of all of them, & I like all of them a lot! A classic!

"Chaotic heavy sound like as early German Rock. The original LP was released on Cobra in 1977. Featuring: Gilbert Artman (orgue, piano, arp synthetiseur, vibraphone, drums...

Classic, great, early and wild experimental avant/progressive rock band, led by drummer/composer Gilbert Artman, before he formed Urban Sax.

"The first solo album in 1973. Avant-Garde electric Jazz Rock!! The original LP was released on Vamp Records in 1973. Featuring: Gilbert Artman (drums, piano steinway, vibes), Herve Eyhani (bass guitar, arp synthetizer), Philippe Bolliet (all saxes), Francois Mativet (guitars) Reissue with elaborate miniature paper sleeve of the original LP (Full color...

Out of print for years and at a great price!

Hey, it’s well over 45 years later and this still sounds like a crazy racket!

“Turns out the very sound of falling in love is just as abstract, subjective and loopy as the concept itself. Yoko Ono and John Lennon are two of history's greatest lovers, and Two Virgins is the document of the pair falling in love in real time. The album is a curious and amazing suite recorded over one weekend in Spring 1968 at Lennon's Kenwood home: Distant conversations; comedic role playing and footsteps; laughter...

Hey, it’s well over 45 years later and this still sounds like a crazy racket! But it’s a crazy racket this time, with half of it performed with crazy racket titans of the 60s.
The album opens with an improvised recording titled "Cambridge 1969", recorded on 2 March 1969 at Cambridge University, before a live audience.
The piece took up all of the vinyl’s side one and consists of Ono's vocalisations and screaming accompanied by electric guitar feedback from Lennon. The SME (saxophonist Trevor...

When This Heat fell apart, Charles Hayward went on to found Camberwell Now, Gareth Williams went to India for studies and Charles Bullen did this, which has been impossibly rare for 30 years. First-ever CD release and first time available in any form for decades and decades. Now you can easily hear it.

This reissues the 2nd Limbus album, which was originally released by OHR in 1970. This is very early, very crazy Germanic freakout, freeform madness "Formed in 1968, Limbus were a most unusual band who grew a unique music out of jazz, folk and avant-ga...

"Pogus is extremely delighted to release this 2 CD set of recordings of works by Alvin Lucier. He is one of the key experimental artists of the 20th and 21st centuries, and is one of my favorite composers. A unique and individual artist: No one sounds...

"A trailblazing force in psycho-acoustic music, avant-garde composer and performer Alvin Lucier was born in Nashua, New Hampshire in 1931; educated at Yale and Brandeis, he also spent two years in Rome on a Fulbright Scholarship before returning to Brandeis in 1962 to teach and conduct the university's chamber chorus. His breakthrough composition, Music for Solo Performer (1964-65) for Enormously Amplified Brain Waves and Percussion, was the first work to feature sounds generated by brain waves in live...

A cool MORE THAN $30 off the regular price! Hard to beat that!

"The epitome of a cult artist (and a favorite of Julian Cope), the enigmatic Magical Power Mako (aka Makoto Kurita) has been sporadically releasing albums in his native Japan since 1974. This lavish numbered, limited edition 5CD set collects jams taped by him between 1972 and 1975, and comes complete with a full 12-page booklet. Encompassing psychedelic folk, Krautrock, electronica and fuzz guitar, the music's effect is frequently...

"The second and all-time best Mako album, originally issued by Japanese Polydor in 1975. Packaged in mini-lp jacket sleeve. Although MPM went on to record 20+ more records after this one, he would never exceed the spatial exuberance of Super Record....

One of the greatest, most idiosyncratic & original bands ever. This was their 2nd, & the first where they began to find their own true voice. With a crack line up including Christian Vander, Francis Moze, Teddy Lasry, Francois Cahen, & many more. While...

Magma's final album of the 1970s isn't a bad album and it has some incredibly great moments (and a great cover by H.R. Giger), but it isn't the best place to start with this brilliantly original and idiosyncratic band.
Newly remastered and in a digipack.

One of the greatest, most idiosyncratic & original bands ever. This is their amazing recording in fine sound from Top Gear, featuring the classic 1974 line-up, including MONSTER bassist Jannick Top in rare, over the top form.
The definitive versions of Kohntarkhosz and Wurdah Itah. Essential.
Be prepared for some intense listening, as these all feature amazing playing & a truly twisted vision.

One of the greatest, most idiosyncratic & original bands ever. This is a live recording (of reasonably good quality, given the time-period) featuring the 1001o Centigrade band! [Seventh]

This was previously released as two separate packages (double CD and DVD). Now it's all combined at a lower price point!
1981 was probably Magma's nadir, but even so, there is some decent to good stuff on here and a few really good players (Benoit Widemann, Jean-Luc Cheavlier, Dominique Bertram, etc.) all wearing amazing, ridiculous, new wave/sci-fi costumes. The picture quality is a bit blurry but more than watchable.
Think of it as an official bootleg, which is actually what it is, and know

The official story is that like Kohntarkhosz Anteria, Emenhntehtt Re (note: I've left many umlats off of the title) was a major, long-form work. It was part of a trilogy along with Kohntarkhosz and K.A. and was written circa in the early/mid 1970s...

The Ëmëhntëhtt-Rê trilogy performed and released in full for the very first time:
Köhntarkösz Anteria (K.A.)
Köhntarkösz
Ëmëhntëhtt-Rê

Recorded live at Le Triton in France in November, 2014.
"Initiated in 1973, its composition beholds its whole fulfillment after more than four decades. It is the testimony of an unwaveringly timeless inspiration, of which the expectant present asserts itself beyond history. Connecting wide and contrasted scenes, it sets its coherence within its.

Since re-emerging in the late 90s, Magma have put on countless simply great performances and 2 stunning albums. But both of those albums (Kontarkosz Anteria (K.A.) and Emenhntehtt Re (E.R.)) were both recordings of 'big pieces' written during the band's 1970s heyday, but unrecorded until now. So, for me at least, the big question has been, "What happens when they run out of old, unrecorded things to record? Can C.V. come up with new material worthy of the band he's assembled?" Happily, the answer is yes...

One of the greatest, most idiosyncratic & original bands ever. This is all otherwise unavailable material, from 6/72-1/75. Musically great with awesome basswork by Janik Top, but it suffers from mediocre-at-best sound. Be prepared for some intense list...

One of the greatest, most idiosyncratic & original bands ever. This is their 1st album and it's quite good, but this is baby steps for the band. You can hear their roots in Soft Machine-style jazz/rock and even some traces (good traces too) of influences from 'horn-rock' like Chicago! Really nice but don't start here if you are looking for what they are most famous for.

One of the greatest, most idiosyncratic & original bands ever. This one is rightly considered an avant/progressive classic and is definitely one of Vander's greatest and most totally unfathomable compositions. And the performance is stunning beyond belief as well.
Be prepared for some intense listening, as these all feature amazing playing & a truly twisted vision.

This gatefold, deluxe vinyl version is totally beautiful.

If my Kobaian doesn't fail me, the 45' Kohntarkhosz Anteria was written circa 1972/1973, but never officially recorded, although a tiny piece of it appears on Inedits, and other little bits were grabbed and used in various other works (most notably the...

"Not so much a true Magma album as it is a choral interpretation of some old Magma music. With no less than 9 vocalists (lead by Christian and Stella Vander), the choir (about half male, half female) is lightly backed by two pianists/keyboardists...

One of the greatest, most idiosyncratic & original bands ever. This is rightly considered a avant/prog classic and features a great lineup of the band (Christian, Stella, Klaus, Bernard Paganotti, Didier Lockwood, Benoit Widemann, Jean-Pol Aseline, Gabriel Federow).
This is probably their most accessible work, as it is their most 'fusion sounding work' with extremely strong soloing from violinist Didier Lockwood, but it in no way compromises their vision.
And what a great live recording!...

One of the greatest, most idiosyncratic & original bands ever. This is their 3rd & is rightly considered a avant/prog classic and the start of Zeuhl. Very strongly vocal, which either makes it a great place to start, if you love 'Klingon opera', as someone once called Magma, or one of the very worst places to start with this magnificent band!
Be prepared for some intense listening, as these all feature amazing playing & a truly twisted vision.

One of the greatest, most idiosyncratic & original bands ever. This is a previously unheard version of MDK, recorded about 9 months before the released version, & with some unique differences too! Be prepared for some intense listening, as these all fe...
