Nurse With Wound List

Dagmar Krause-vocals
Chris Cutler-drums, electronics
Fred Frith-guitars, keyboards, violin, etc.
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

“Art Zoyd is a quartet, but their instrumental arsenal produces the sound of a mighty orchestra.”
The New York Times

“...the uncompromising classic 1982 opus Phase IV is justifiably considered one of the group's peak accomplishments. The Rock in Opposition co-founders marry dark, unsettling atmospherics à la Univers Zero to precise minimalist constructs with hints of Philip Glass or Steve Reich.”
AllMusic


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...

One of the original R.I.O. groups. A mid 80's release that showcases their growing interest in electronics & in working with other artforms [dance, theatre, film]. With Theirry Zaboitzeff, Gerard Hourbette, Patricia Dallio, Daniel Denis. [In-Possible]

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").

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...

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...

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 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!

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'...

"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...

"In publishing the entire performance from start to finish, this release allows us to experience these much-missed artists at work with a degree of intimacy and familiarity absent from (for example) prestigious festival performances. Of course, any new addition to the Bailey discography is an exciting development, but I feel I must also mention just how well Will Gaines plays on this gig. For those who might be unsure why Derek was always so happy to play with Will, listen to how Will uses his strongly...

"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!

New, digi-pack issue made from the tapes, of this well known group's debut album that isn't the one they are famous for, but is still a good one, for what it is.

Ys, the 2nd & last album by IBDB, is one of the most loved 70's Italian progressive rock releases. It is a classical rock classic that has seldom been equaled, with great soaring vocals, terrific, heavy Hammond organ playing, a creepy atmosphere, and...

Oddball, weird, compelling, noisy, and ultimately trés charming recordings by a musical tinkerer who builds very low-tech machines that he calls Mecanium. Sometimes the Mecanium play alone and sometimes he plays instruments along with the Mecanium.

"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.

Pollution from 1972 is the captivating follow-up to Fetus. Like its predecessor, the album features Baroque textures, motorik rhythms, weird tape effects and Battiato’s perfectly oblique vocals. Upon he

"Sulle Corde Di Aries was Battiato's third release and showed his fascination for electronic, minimalist and systemic musics. As such, it is quite similar to Pollution except much more electronic based and with a more definitive style. There are also a lot of modern classical strains coming through here and a great spacey feel again reminding me of Sensations Fix or Gong at times. A simply fascinating album."-Expose/Mike McLatchey.

Just in time for the reissues of "Romance '76" and "Trans Harmonic Nights" comes the first new music from Peter in something like 20 years! And it's good, capturing the sort of 'spare but still Berlin-school' vibe of his early classics!

An important, long-time and key member of Tangerine Dream, Peter Baumann was with the group through basically all of their most important work.

“Jac Berrocal is a 1946-born musician, poet and film actor who came of age in the '70s Paris improv scene, where the boundaries between music, art and theatre were porous and begging to be breached. Inspired by bebop, chanson, free jazz, beat poetry, early rock 'n roll and myriad Eastern influences, and with an iconoclastic, anything-goes approach to instrumentation and technique that would later align him with post-punk sensibilities, Berrocal blazed an eccentric and unstoppable trail across the

"Jacques Berrocal has been very active since the beginning of the 1970s. No one in France could mix jazz, improvisation, rock'n'roll, punk, no wave, spoken words and industrial music like him. He also had a central position in the creation of d'Avantage, a collective record label that issued some of the most particular sessions of the mid-late Seventies. At the same time he was working on never ending sessions for records that were never issued. Jac and his band were the Apostles of the non-urgency...
