“Patrizio Fariselli, Claudia Tellini, Marco Micheli and Walter Paoli live in Tokyo in an amazing concert on May 18th 2019 at JAZZ ROCK LEGENDS!
In addition to the music taken from the recent "100 GHOSTS" by Patrizio Fariselli, the group presented the most famous pieces of the historical repertoire of AREA beautifully sung, after the death of Demetrio Stratos, by the

Thierry Zaboitzeff - bass, cello, vocals, sampler, programming
Nadia Ratsimandresy – Ondes Martenot, keyboards
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...

Remastered excellently by Bob Drake, 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. With Dagmar Krause-vocals, Chris Cutler-drums, electronics & Fred Frith- guitars, keyboards, violin, etc. + all the rest of Henry Cow. Songs with powerful lyrics built upon experimental kernels. "This grouping made one of the most powerful statements yet in the world of...

Received direct from label, unsealed and outer box has some shelf wear. It's not bad, but could be better. I guess that's how these come now, so it is what it is. You have been warned. The box and the booklets are really beautifully done. Now here comes the party line:

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 possibly most successful of the three albums by this immediate offshoot of Henry Cow, as it was recorded AS an Art Bears album (their 1st had been recorded as a Henry Cow album, but half the band objected, so it came out as being by Art Bears).
It’s also their best known album as it was released in the States by The Residents' Ralph label, in the early 80's and at the

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...

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").

Etienne Jaumet - alto saxophone, synth
Gilbert Artman - electronic drums, groovebox, harmonium, xylophone

One of the great greybeards of French new music (Urban Sax, Lard Free, etc) meets a representative of the next generation of sonic explorers for a lovely, low-key album!

“A great discovery, it reminds me of Confluence (Arkham) which I haven't listened to for a long time. Beautiful atmospheres!”-Christophe Genu

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...

“Transparent vinyl version. First-ever official reissue on vinyl since 1975. 350 gram Quadro Fold Out Sleeve that exactly replicates complex/original OHR die-cut jacket, A2 Poster, 2x (German and English) A4 Inlay with Original Bio Sheet written by Manuel Göttsching (1970). Pressed at Optimal, Germany.”

This was originally recorded and released in 2000 and was one of two efforts by 'Ash Ra Tempel", which is the meeting again after quite some time of Klaus Schulze and Manuel Gottsching.
This one was always hard to find and while it isn't going to shame their classic 70s work, it's more than quite good, trance music with MG actually really letting it rip HARD here and there. Conditionally recommended!

This is the Ash Ra Tempel "reunion" live reunion show from April 2000, announced by the very excited MC at the beginning that they are playing together for the first time in 30 years. I guess Mr MC never heard any of the work Klaus and Manuel did together in the 80s and 90s. This is still really good stuff though!

The very good, if somewhat overlooked fourth album by this legendary Krautrock ensemble.
The band's fourth album, this is the first time since their self-titled first that you have the trio of Manuel Gottsching (guitar), Harmut Enke (bass) and Klaus Schulze (drums + keyboards). Additionally, Rossi appears on vocals (sort of a proto 'space whisper' ala Gong).
Not an intense album like their first, but still real nice.

Back in print after at least a decade of unavailability. This is a previously unreleased 1975 album, issued for the first time in the mid 1990's as a film soundtrack. For that reason, it's definitely not one of the classics, but it is still really good overall.

"In 1975 I was doing a series of concerts in France with Lutz Ulbrich, where we were presenting 'Inventions for Electric Guitar' and other compositions, which we developed together that year. In August, we were invited for two concerts in...

Re-cut carefully overseen by Manuel Göttsching himself. Gatefold sleeve with sticker; Includes original release sheet and inlay."

The fairly insane third album where Timothy Leary, on the run from the Feds, ends up in Switzerland surrounded by happy hippies. Remastered by Manuel Göttsching himself!

Their third album was named after the LSD-laced soft drink that these guys were now ingesting by the caseload. A big psychedelic / spaceout jam type disc, with the side long live track being a real highlight. This does have some pretty great moments (the live side being pretty outstanding overall) (& if you are a fan of stoned...

This is a CLASSIC and was where I discovered the wonders of Manuel Gottsching!
The sixth album by Ash Ra Tempel, this was actually Manuel Gottsching's first solo album. Recorded at home with a Teac 4 track, & released in 1974, it's an absolute classic of echo'd, multi-tracked guitar trance/space-out wizardry. Three long, appropriately named tracks ("Echo Waves," "Quasarsphere," "Pluralis"). This belongs in the collection of anyone interested in space or trance music.

"Manuel played his...

"On Automatic Writing, Robert Ashley composes under the influence of his 'involuntary speech.' (In his liner notes, Ashley revealed that he suffered from 'a mild form of Tourette's.') The piece starts quietly, with scraps of Ashley's mild, tremulous voice arranged next to more fluid French translations and barely-there touches of Moog. After Ashley's phrases lengthen enough to encompass sense-making phrases, a bass-register groove briefly appears, vanishes, then returns. Few pieces so quiet have...

Totally professional, multi-camera live performance from June 8, 2012 in Berlin of Manuel Gottsching (guitar & keyboard), Harald Grosskopf (drums) and Steve Baltes (electronics) performing pieces from the albums Blackouts and Correlations.

This album, recorded in Berlin, and originally released in 1977 on Virgin, marks the first time Manuel Gottsching used the name Ashra (as opposed to Ash Ra Tempel). This was also possibly the first time that the term "new age" was used on a record!
It's another completely wonderful, flowing, spacey album, featuring just Manuel performing on sequencer, keyboards and a lot of guitar. He did one more great one after this, Blackouts, then took some time off and returned to utter greatness and glory with..

"A reissue of Derek Bailey's Lot 74, originally released by Incus in 1974. Recorded at a private house in West London, the side-long title track is a masterwork: a twenty-two-minute, starkly personal, freely expressive, itchily searching re-casting of orders of rhythm and sound into a new, quicksilver kind of affective and musical polyphony. Never mind the guitarist's championing of "non-idiomatic improvisation", the poet Peter Riley gets the ball rolling in his identification of the various hauntings...

"A reissue of Derek Bailey and Tristan Honsinger Duo, originally released by Incus in 1976. Born in Burlington, Vermont, and conservatory-trained in the US, the cellist Tristan Honsinger moved from Montreal to Amsterdam in 1974, quickly linking with Han Bennink and Misha Mengelberg and opening a long and fruitful musical relationship with Derek Bailey. Recorded in 1976, Duo displays a performative musical approach already characterized by the lack of inhibition which would later endear him to The Pop...

This is a reunion album by original members of Il Balletto, the members who made their 1st album Sirio 2222.

Like that album, this has many psychedelic and even 60s rock influences, along with progressive hard rock and early proto-progressive elements.

Loud guitars, a rocking rhythm section and keyboards, along with vocals certainly influenced by 60s groups from beat groups onward and including guest vocals and keyboards by Gianni Leone!

“By now counting more than four decades of constant activity, Pierre Bastien erected such a towering and influential body of work that any blurb attempt regarding his music could easily fall into redundancy. Not that his revolving soundworld, deeply personal and unique, has ever stalled into gimmick or self-mimicry, being Bastien the tireless explorer whose vision can never be complete, only continuously redefined in a process of discovery equally playful and challenging. So, completely in touch with...

"On his fourth album, Clic, Franco Battiato moves further out—into realms of pure and elemental approaches to sound—to create a seminal work that flows naturally from one musical form to the next. Every second ripples with orbital chords, kosmische textures and schizophrenic string quartets, yet somehow manages the same dramatic pacing and variety as his avant-rock albums Fetus and Pollution.
Originally released in 1974 on Bla Bla, Clic features Battiato on VCS3 synthesizer and piano, along with...

"Franco Battiato is often heralded as Italy’s answer to Brian Eno. A quizzical composer / lyricist, Battiato turned pop music upside down in the early ‘70s with three classic LPs—Fetus, Pollution and Sulle Corde Di Aries—that formed a confluence of avant-folk sensibilities and analog electronics.
Originally released in 1971 on Bla Bla, Fetus predated the prodigious Cramps and Multhipla catalogues to become one of the first electronic records produced in Italy. With his trusted VCS3 synthesizer...
