Nurse With Wound List

"In May 2015, Coralie Van Rietschoten traveled with the band on their first Chinese tour. Glimpses of Shenzhen’s tropical vegetation, Beijingers exercising in public parks, and Shanghai’s psychedelic city lights are interspersed with concert footage.
Nihao: "Hello" in Mandarin, the official language of the People's Republic Of China

One of the greatest, most idiosyncratic & original bands ever. This is from their reunion concert in Paris in 1980. This is sorta weak; don't start here! [Seventh]

One of the greatest, most idiosyncratic & original bands ever. This is from their reunion concert in Paris in 1980. Be prepared for some intense listening, as these all feature amazing playing & a truly twisted vision. [Seventh]

One of the few completely new titles by the revived and reinvigorated Magma captured in the studio, Slag Tanz is one of the group's two new pieces that they regularly perform live (along with the previously released Felicite Thosz) and it's a really good one!

The band on this recording is:
Stella VANDER : chant
Isabelle FEUILLEBOIS : chant
Hervé AKNIN : chant
Benoît ALZIARY : vibraphone
James MAC GAW : guitare
Jérémie TERNOY : piano
Philippe BUSSONNET : basse..

After many, many delays, this much sought after DVD is finally here. It is 2 hours, 45 minutes long, & is a document of the 30th anniversary concerts. It contains the complete Theusz Hamtaahk trilogy (Wurdah Itah, Theusz Hamtaahk, Mekanik Destrutiw Kom...

Recorded live at Magma's 30th anniversary concerts in May, 2000, this is the first time that the complete Theusz Hamtaahk trilogy has been released in one set. Excellent live recording and terrific energy coming off of the stage. While you've heard the...

OK bargain hunters and the Kobaian curious - this is for you. This is the final two "real" Magma albums of the 1970s; Udu Wudu and Attahk here complete as they were originally issued, with a track from "Live" thrown in for fun, although they are not...

One of the greatest, most idiosyncratic & original bands ever. This is the last ''real'' Magma disc, recorded as the band was collapsing. But it includes the side long smoker ''De Futura'', which launched a thousand zeuhl bands on their careers...and that's just side two - side one is really good too, if not as intense. A total winner!

This amazing document has been lying in the archives at Radio Bremen for 40 years. A decade ago, when we were licensing a lot of material from Radio Bremen, I tried to get permission from the band to release this incredible show and they said 'no'. Why they said 'yes' to someone else a decade later, I don't know, but the world is a better place because of it!
This is the entire radio broadcast, featuring the touring version of the Köhntarhosz band:...

One of Mantler's most 'simple' albums but also one of his most successful was the original release of Movies. The follow-up isn't quite as inspired, but it's still pretty fine. VERY interesting to me to see him specifically reference Mahavishnu...

This was the wonderful 1st album that launched this amazing musician's career. A brilliant musician, composer and arranger, the closest comparison I might be able to make is that Albert is the French Frank Zappa, except that that really doesn't do him or his original music justice.
This is a brilliant album, with great melodies, musical surprises galore, brilliant orchestration, & much more. Highly recommended.

This was the fantastic 2nd album by Albert, which, like his first, was originally released on French Atlantic. A brilliant musician, composer and arranger, the closest comparison one can make is that Albert is the French Frank Zappa, except that that doesn't really do Albert or his original music justice.
Coming just two years after his first (the shortest time between albums Albert has ever managed - he works carefully and SLOWLY), this might have been slightly overlooked by folks. Don't make that...

This is Albert's amazingly incredible 3rd album. A brilliant musician, composer and arranger, the closest comparison one can make is that Albert is the French Frank Zappa, except that that doesn't really do Albert or his original music justice.
This came out in 1979 and features a 9 piece band, including the Marcoeur brothers, François Ovide-guitars, Jacques Breley-basoon/oboe, plus additional horns, keyboards, bass and drums.
This is a stupendous album with tons of great melodies, musical....

This is Albert's truly astonishingly brilliant 4th album. A brilliant musician, composer and arranger, the closest comparison one can make is that Albert is the French Frank Zappa, except that that doesn't really do Albert or his original music justice.
After being on 2 major labels, this sat for a little while on the shelf before finally coming out circa 1984. I remember waiting desperately for it to be released, and finally it was here!!
It's a subtler work than his earlier three; it's not...

In a 30 year career, this is only Albert's 8th album. I am probably the biggest fan of Marcoeur in North America, but I gotta say that I found this to be very subdued on the only 2 listenings I have been able to give it so far. His fans must have it i...

"The definitive collection of the 32 minutes of studio recordings released between 1977 and 1979 on vinyl by the first of the no wave bands. This album is an effort to recuperate the group's legacy and make up for the unavailability of these tracks in...

Edition of 800.
"Following the success of the two live LPs bookending Mars's trajectory through the skies of NYC, Mark Cunningham was convinced to return to his legendary box of cassettes. Even he was surprised to discover the band's earliest shows (done under the name China) were there, amidst a tumble of other tapes. Thus, the idea was born for a trilogy of LPs tracing Mars's development from their first audition gig at CBGB through the shows following their 1980 Lust/Unlust EP. China to Mars is....

Right after Henry Cow ended, Fred Frith moved to NYC. He played a little with people here and there and worked on his Gravity album, but Massacre - formed on Valentine's Day, 1980, and lasting until late summer 1981, was his first real post-Cow band.
Recorded mostly live in 1981, this pretty much helped to define the beginnings of the downtown scene, alongside such great and too much forgotten bands like The Decoding Society, Music Revelation Ensemble, Curlew, etc....

These hugely expanded reissues of the two, classic Matching Mole albums are really just a dream come true for Canterbury heads/Robert Wyatt fans. This features photos and other ephemera, liner notes by Sid Smith, newly remastered sound and most importantly, a host of bonus material!

Less than six months after leaving Soft Machine (Robert left in August, and the record of this album began in December, 1971), Robert began work on a solo album. As he worked on it, musicians began to perform on it...

Good to see this long unavailable work finally reissued on CD! "The Mnemonists were a legendary group of composers and artists from Fort Collins, Colorado, who went on to call themselves Biota. They created drifting hypnotic sound collages out of pre-i...

The 3rd release by this acclaimed organized sound group from Colorado, & their first true classic, which is a high-water mark of churning sonic storms. This is some of their finest works. [ReR]

"A very singular chapter in the Amos/It's War Boys/Milk From Cheltenham/Homosexuals history. Directly taken from the original It's War Boys catalog, here is one of the most obscure sonic works of the early 1980s, Modern Shit! First "issued" on tape...

"On their second album Material, originally released on Sky Records in 1981, Moebius & Plank ventured far, far away from the double coordinates of the Harmonia world and pop music cosmos. Amazingly, they did not find themselves floating in space, but...

This is a really great one, Krautrock fans. Don't miss this, which is somewhat unusual in the oeuvre and one of the late period great ones!

"Dieter Moebius and Conny Plank got to know each other through their work on Cluster's 1971 album and remained close friends until Plank's death in 1987. They made a congenial pair as musicians, as amply demonstrated by their first album as a duo, Rastakraut Pasta, originally released on Sky Records in 1980.

On this album, drums, electric guitars...

"With Asmus Tietchens and Dieter Moebius, two artists counting among the greats of German avant-garde electronic music have come together. Both have been active for well over 30 years: Moebius (since 1970) as a member of Kluster/Cluster and Harmonia...

"Dieter Moebius -- half of the legendary duo Cluster and the godfather of electronic krautrock -- passed away in the summer of 2015. In 2016, Bureau B begins rereleasing his final four solo albums, starting with his 1999 album Blotch. Moebius's most famous collaboration is, of course, the "long-term project" Cluster with Hans-Joachim Roedelius, which existed from 1969 until 2010 (with some lengthy breaks). The duo existed in changing formations involving such legendary colleagues as Conny Plank, Michael...

I wrote this 8 years ago, so some information has since come to light about this album; see below. Mega-rare, 1974 US indie release gains a legitimate reissue in Japan. There's almost no information about this album anywhere, including in the CD...

Released in 1984, this was the final recording the made as "A. More/Anthony More" (and his last solo album), this was his last 'indie rock' release of the late 70s/early 80s.

This is an amazing document that I never thought I would ever see. As is known among mega-fans, one of the better pieces of footage of the original Mothers Of Invention (and it isn't like there's a ton of said footage anyway) is the 35' of their appearance on Beat Club, recorded on...
