Nurse With Wound List

Mark “Rockette Morton” Boston – bass
John “Drumbo” French – vocals, harmonica, drums on instrumentals
Gary Lucas – guitar
Denny “Feelers Reebo” Walley – guitar
Michael Traylor or Robert Arthur Williams – drums on vocal tracks

This album and DVD set, recorded live between 2003-20004, was the earliest version of the post-Don, John French-led Magic Band, which means you get the largest number of old Magic Band members involved!
“I know, that's John French doing that amazing...

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!

John [Drumbo] French – vocals, harmonica, sax, guitar, drums
Mark [Rockette Morton] Boston – bass
Denny [Feelers Rebo] Walley - slide guitar, vocals
Eric Klerks – guitar, bass, vocals
Craig Bunch - drums.

This is an excellent recording of a fiery gig by John French’s revived Magic Band in 2013. Not convinced? I think one listen to them tear through the opening track, “My Human Gets Me Blues” will convince!

"A stellar concert of the Captain's music recorded in London at

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..

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]

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, but never recorded. Unlike K.A., a very good portion all of the parts have appeared on various albums over the years. So, it's hard for a non Kobaian to know if the official story is true or if the story is just a way to make a new, major statement without....

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...

Magma added three more female voices to the mix, and the singing is extra great on here. Additionally the over-all recorded sound seems a bit better over-all from the last few releses. The playing is also very strong, although my heart will always belong to Bubu...

“2020/2021.

Following the..

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...

“Unavailable since months in its original version, finally here is Magma’s fourth and legendary album in a digipack remastered deluxe edition, including a never heard before 32 minutes live track of the head title, recorded during the 2015 China tour. Unique opportunity 8 years later, to hear the band surrounding the telluric guitar of the late and much missed James McGaw.”

“This bonus version of Köhntarkösz, recorded in Beijing, remains an unforgettable memory...
I remember James telling us.

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 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...

For 40 years, although this has been listed as a 'solo' release by Magma's founder, this is, for all intents & purposes, the fourth Magma album, having been released between M.D.K. and Kohntarkhoz.

Now, for this snazzy vinyl reissue, it's been rightfully renamed as being by MAGMA, and more importantly, features a clear photo from the film that this was a soundtrack of (sort of - long story), and you can see for yourself how much the costumes predate GWAR by 15 years!

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 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.

Long out of print, we found exactly NINE copies in the lost warehouse!

This was Albert’s fifth album. It includes an outtake from the Celiu sessions, released as a single at the time.
Not quite up to the work of his first four releases (that’s because nothing is), this was issued after a long layoff in 1990, and boy – oh – boy, was I thrilled to see it’s appearance at the time.
The title translates as ‘My Life With Them (but the Them is feminine, meaning I always took the....

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...

"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....

"Barring some miraculous discovery (never out of the question!), Mars Archives Volume Three: N.N. End is the final LP in our series of LPs documenting the music of New York's most amazing combo of the No Wave era, Mars. From their more-quotidian beginnings as China, whose sound was influenced by the Velvets and Television, Mars mutated and grew in a variety of nearly unchartable directions. N.N. End documents the latter, immaculate stages of the band's destruction of song forms once and for all....

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....

First album by this trio of Fred Frith-guitar, Miya Masaoka-koto and electronics & Larry Ochs-saxes. Recorded live July 2-3, 1998 in Chicago.

“A Perfect Pain is a manifestation of the incredible power created by Genesis Breyer P-Orridge (Psychic TV/Throbbing Gristle) -- the founding father of the industrial world, and Merzbow -- the undisputed king of Japanese noise. Recorded exclusively for Cold Spring, A Perfect Pain has been hailed as an important album and an extremely successful collaboration.“

An album so obscure that most of Terje Rypdal's fans didn't even know it existed until it's first reissue (I didn't). Their one and only album, originally recorded and released in 1970. This short lived trio featured guitarist Terje (also playing soprano sax!) Bjornar Andresen-double bass and Espen Rud-drums.
After a really free-jazz start, the album veers between quite free-skronk and free playing with a groove. Obviously, Terje was very influenced by working with Jan Garbarek about the same time.

"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-industrial loops, processed ambient sound, rock 'n' roll guitar, and fragments of half forgotten memory. Their work was highly visual, and always accompanied by beautiful line drawings and painted art works; the total meaning is forged from the combination of sonic and visual information. Gyromancy stands as a classic...

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

"...reminiscent of peering through a mircoscope at a drop of pond water: There's a lot more going on than you'd ever suspect."-Option

"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...

M.E. (Blue Effect) were one of the very best Czech progressive bands of the 70s, led by guitarist Radim Hladik, who is still remembered fondly by many. This is the awaited issue of what I consider to be their best album. From 75, this is an all instrumental fusion/progressive oriented work with tasty guitarwork taking the spotlight. Also includes 2 bonus tracks! Start here with this minor classic & work backwards.

Modry Effekt or M. Effekt (as they are called here) (Blue Effect in English) were one of the very best Czech progressive bands of the 70s, led by guitarist Radim Hladik, who is still remembered fondly by many. This one, from 79, has tons of long instrumental passages & several long tracks with some mind-expanding guitar & keyboard work (by Oldrich Vesely) & good backing from the rhythm section.
Includes 7 bonus tracks from 3 singles and a live track!
