Nurse With Wound List

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...

Special price on this classic ESP release, recorded in concert October 8, 1966 in Buenos Aires, Argentina with a good band, all of whom would go on to some renown and all getting their first international recognition here: Enrico Rava-trumpet, Johnny...

“New York-born soprano saxophonist Steve Lacy became associated with the avant-garde jazz movement from the mid-1950s, playing on free jazz pianist Cecil Taylor's influential debut LP.
Visiting Europe from the mid-1960s, Lacy later travelled to Italy to form a quartet with Italian trumpeter Enrico Rava (who had earlier played in Argentinian sax player, Gato Barbieri's group), plus South African exiles and former Blue Notes members Johnny Dyani on double bass and Louis Moholo on drums. Lacy...

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...

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...

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...

This reissues the 2nd Limbus album, which was originally released by OHR in 1970. This is very early, very crazy Germanic freakout, freeform madness It features four musicians who were never heard from again after this: Odysseus Artnern, Bernd Henninger..

"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...

“Orpheus Variations is a new composition by Alvin Lucier for solo cello and seven wind instruments. It is based on a particular sonority from the first movement of Igor Stravinsky's ballet score, Orpheus; a sonority that has haunted Lucier for decades. Orpheus Variations is one of eight large-scale compositions made expressly for Charles Curtis by Alvin Lucier in the last 15 years. This performance was conducted by Petr Kotik, with Charles Curtis playing solo cello alongside members of the SEM Ensemble."...

“The recently composed "Ricochet Lady" (2016) is the only work for solo acoustic glockenspiel by the American experimental composer Alvin Lucier. Following in the manner of his pieces "I Am Sitting In A Room" and "Vespers", "Ricochet Lady" embodies Lucier's approach toward sound's individual function and mobility within space. This CD defines this approach through four realizations recorded in four dissimilar spaces, ranging from the standard to extraordinary: a university rehearsal hall with walls of...

“String Noise presents three major works for violin solo and duo composed between 2004 and 2019. Lucier has developed his compositions in close collaboration with many instrumentalists over the years; the three works presented here are performed by the violinists for whom they were originally written, Conrad Harris and Pauline Kim Harris, who together make up the innovative violin duo String Noise, and have premiered works by a plethora of major figures in contemporary music.
The long-form...

"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...

“As Bill Harkleroad tells us at the beginning of his preface, he can't write. This isn't a professional memoir, and that won't prevent barmy Beefheart nuts from enjoying the book, which reads as if Bill Harkelroad is here talking to you, with regular speech ticks ("totally" and "really" abound) and an absence of editing. Mr Harkelroad often states the obvious, such that Winged Eel Fingerling was "a really colorful person". This is part of the charm, a memoir without artifice. LUNAR NOTES is an ideal...

From the Theater of Eternal Music to being the original drummer of the Velvet Underground, to very early electronic works which are presented here. It was a long, strange, wild trip for Angus...

I hope that there will be more from the Magic Band (now consisting of John French, Mark Boston, Denny Walley and Gary Lucas), but for now, this album of well recorded live rehearsals of 17 classic tracks by the band - some now recast as instrumentals and some featuring John's very appropriate vocals - will more than suffice!

If you read John French's amazing book, "Through the Eye of Magic", you'll know how much these musicians suffered to bring you this music. Still, 40-45 years later, the joy and greatness of these pieces remains and if anyone can play this music...

"A stellar concert of the Captain's music recorded in London at Chelsea Under The Bridge during their 2013 spring tour. Led by the mercurial John "Drumbo" French, with Danny "Feelers Reebo" Walley and Mark "Rockette Morton" Boston, and supported by...

"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 astounding, and absolutely essential for all fans of Japrock."...

"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....

Daevid Allen - guitar & vocals
Graham Clarke – violin
Mark Robson - keyboards& didgeridoo.

“Apparently a one-time side project for Gong main man Daevid Allen. 'Live At The Witchwood, 1991' is basically good trippy 'head' music. Plenty of that Allen type of wit that many of us have come to expect.
Eleven tracks with a duration of 73:10. Some exclusive cuts to this disc as well as several Gong obscurities, like "Zero Theme", "Magick Brothers" (off the very first Gong lp of the same..

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 somewhere between Zeuhl & good early jazz rock, this still features the truly twisted vision that is Magma.

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 a live recording (of reasonably good quality, given the time-period) featuring the 1001o Centigrade band! [Seventh]

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.

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...

THIS IS LONG OUT OF PRINT, but we found a few!

"Magma combines the energy of rock, trance, jazz and classical influences (ranging from Bartók to Carl Orff) into a unique musical structure. in 2014-2015, they embarked on a world tour that saw them performing for three generations of fans. In celebration of their astounding live shows, Jazz Village presents Köhnzert Zünd — a twelve disc, comprehensive collection of live recordings housed in a unique custom-made boxed set...

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!...

Michel Graillier-keyboards

There are certain bands and certain tours in music that assume rightly legendary status.
The European tour of April 1964 by Charle Mingus comes to mind as one for me, as does – in an entirely different way – the European tour in the early spring of 1974 by this edition of Magma.
There are several live recorded sets...

Magma has basically made the wonderful Parisian club "Le Triton" their home for multi-date residencies.

In addition to it being a great, small club with terrific sound, they have built in professional audio and video recording facilities!...

In May, 2005, Magma took over the wonderful Parisian club "Le Triton" for four weeks with an ambitious, over the top project; a retrospective of 35 years of Magma music, showcasing some of their best known pieces from 1970 to the present. The four sold...

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 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...

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...

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 great album, which was recorded in April, 1974, has an interesting history. When originally released, this was released as a 'solo' album by Christian Vander, but for all intents & purposes, it was (and is) the fourth Magma album, having been released between M.D.K. and Kohntarkhoz.
The album is also interesting because it is a Magma album stripped down to the barest essentials of electric and acoustic pianos (all played by Christian), bass by Janick Top, choir (Vander, Klaus Blasquiz and....

“Zess is the story of the end of everything. The end of time and of everything that has ever existed. Absolute oblivion, like a dreamless night. It feels like nothing has ever existed nor will it ever exist again. All forms of consciousness have vanished.”-Christian Vander.

The legend of Magma’s Zess is that when Zess is recorded and released, it will signal the end of Magma. Happily the band are walking that back ... I guess we'll see, won't we...
This is a less intense, more choral work...

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!
