"The music explores suffocating sounds that can be obtained by haunted analog synth textures and ultra hypnotic frequencies. A very creepy, extended drone manifesto. Supreme stuff!! A hymn to repetition, micro-events and dream-time."-Prog Archives

“About the Con-Struct series:
Conrad Schnitzler liked to embark on daily excursions through the sonic diversity of his synthesizers. Finding exceptional sounds with great regularity, he preserved them for use in combination with each other in subsequent live performances. He thus amassed a vast sound archive of his discoveries over time. When the m=minimal label in Berlin reissued two Conrad Schnitzler albums at the outset of the 2010s, label honcho Jens Strüver was granted access to this audio...

"Conrad Schnitzler (1937-2011), is one of the most important representatives of Germany's electronic music avant-garde. He was a member of Tangerine Dream and Kluster, and also released countless solo albums.

With Barbara Preisinger he created Scape Records and his own mastering studio Scape Mastering. The Con-Struct series is based off of Schnitzler's daily excursions through the...

"This still holds its ground after 38 years. Its unusual mix of poetic psych with heavy episodes and progressive structures is inventive... 'The World Will End Yesterday' is an acid-drenched classic." --The Tapestry Of Delights

“Second Hand's groundbreaking debut album "Reality" from 1968 is a captivating journey into experimental psychedelia that defies categorization.

This lovely record, their 1st and with the most psychedelia smeared onto their already impressive jazz/rock is back! Hugely recommended.
Secret Oyster were a five piece Danish fusion/progressive supergroup of the 1970s, whose members came from the ranks of Burnin' Red Ivanhoe, Hurdy Gurdy and Coronarias Dans. This was their first album, which was released in 1973, and which, I was surprised to realize, I had never actually heard before this reissue.
Having played this one a number of times now..

Secret Oyster were a five piece Danish fusion/progressive supergroup of the 1970s, whose members came from the ranks of Burnin' Red Ivanhoe, Hurdy Gurdy and Coronarias Dans. This album, recorded in the fall of 1975, was the band's fourth and final album; the pressures of having recorded four albums in just over two years, touring constantly and being disappointed when the US branch Columbia broke their promise to the band to give them the same 'priority' treatment they had given to Weather Report...

“Warren 'Sonny' Sharrock died of a heart attack at the age of 53 in 1994. At the time of his death, many writers noted that he had recently landed a contract with a major label (RCA) and was perhaps 'destined for big things.' In my opinion, these writers missed the point. Although Mr. Sharrock may not have been successful financially (as though that might be a primary motivating goal for any true artist), he was uncommonly successful aesthetically. Certainly, there are a few dubious moments to be found...

“The first international reissue of Ayako Shinozaki's Music Now For Harp released in 1974 by Nippon Columbia. The LP was released on the label's cult "Master Sonic" series and features Shinozaki's harp soundscape on works by renowned composer Toru Takemitsu and Katsuhiro Tsubono. The highlight of the album is the spaced-out, ethereal 25-min ambient epic "Heterodyne" featuring cult musician Takehisa Kosugi (Taj Mahal Travellers, Group Ongaku) on electric violin and sound waves.

This is the first time ever that this one and done, rockin' German rarity has been legitimately reissued.
Originally released on Phillips in 1971, they are a heavy power trio and they are comparable in some ways to their contemporaries Guru Guru, with long tracks and plenty of acid-fueled craziness to their very heavy jams.

This is very great to see; Skeleton Crew went through a number of permutations in their four years of existence (1982-1986) and this collection of unreleased live recordings shows us all aspects of this great band; I saw them three times and they were always hugely entertaining!

“Skeleton Crew was founded in the early 1980s by Fred Frith and Tom Cora. The original idea was to create a new group out of the ashes of Massacre, but medical issues of several potential members saw Frith & Cora end up...

In the early 1980's, after disbanding the great trio Massacre, Fred Frith formed Skeleton Crew as a sort of a three person 1-man band, with Tom Cora (Curlew) and Dave Newhouse (The Muffins). Dave left pretty soon after, and for the next few years, the two man Skeleton Crew toured all over everywhere, bringing their unique blend of high musicianship (Fred on violin, guitar, half a drumset, vocals and Tom on cello, guitar, bass, the other half of the drumset and vocals) and low-tech protest song and...

2005 remastered reissue of this classic album recorded by Peter Blegvad, Dagmar Krause and Anthony Moore in 1973. Produced by Uwe Nettelbeck (Faust's producer), engineered by Kurt Grauner (Faust’s engineer) and backed by Faust themselves at their legendary studio in Wumme, Germany.
Amazingly, this incredible album – maybe their best – was turned down by Virgin who made them re-do the album in a much less interesting way (and without Faust) in the early 70s and it lay unreleased until the mid 80's...

This is the very surprising 1997 regrouping (after their last recordings together - a single - almost 20 years before) of the original trio of Peter Blegvad, Anthony Moore and Dagmar Krause.

In May, 2000, hot on the heels of their excellent (if a bit over-produced) reunion album Ça Va, Slapp Happy embarked on their first ever tour of Japan. The original trio of Dagmar Krause (vocals), Peter Blegvad (guitar, vocals) and Anthony Moore (piano, keyboards) perform a wonderful selection of tunes from their earliest times to the then present, but with the most notable fact being the startling recasting of a large number of tunes from Ça Va in a very acoustic format where they work wonderfully well...

The much wanted & anticipated reissue of Slapp Happy's extremely rare debut from 1972 by Peter Blegvad, Dagmar Krause & Anthony Moore, recorded at Wumme (Faust's studio) with backing by some of Faust (Gunther Wusthoff, Werner "Zappi" Diermaier and Jean-Herve Peron).
The band's charming naiveté was never as pronounced as here. And if hearing these formative recordings wasn't enough, you even get the non lp b-side (Jumping Jonah) of their single as well! Subtle, unlike anything else (especially...

“Slapp Happy meanwhile was planning its second record for Virgin. One night the trio showed up at the quartet's door and proposed that the two groups make the second Slapphappy LP together...Henry Cow jumped at the chance and Desperate Straights was the result.

“New primitive-suburban-folk music from Temple City and Pasadena, CA, circa 1973-4. This new edition is culled from the original unissued Smegma tape vaults of Ju Suk Reet Meate and represents the most pure expression of the insular sound-world that was spontaneously discovered as a group.

Nice to see this, the first solo album by Snakefinger, that was released to great acclaim in 1979 on the Resident's Ralph label. A minor classic of whatever it is that the Residents and assorted acts are!

""Chewing Hides The Sound" came out in 1979 on Ralph Records. It includes classics such as his Kraftwerk cover "The Model", "What Wilbur?" and "Picnic In The Jungle". The songs on the album were co-written with The Residents. The music showcased Lithman's distinctive slide guitar playing and...

Licensed from SONY, this is a legit version that is sonically the exact same thing as the latest SONY issue, now out of print.

For some reason, I think Four has always been the overlooked Soft Machine album. There's probably several reasons for this but that doesn't change the fact that I think that this is tied with Volume Two as their greatest album ever!

In 2018, Soft Machine released a very fine album called ‘Hidden Details’ and following that release, they toured the world in 2018 and 2019.
Anyone who went to see them were treated to an excellent set of jazz/rock of old and new tunes, played with tremendous fire and drive and extremely well received.
This excellent (and excellently recorded) live album was recorded in Lo

Oft-bootlegged, very high quality soundboard recording of the trio version of Soft Machine from 3/29/69 (Hopper, Ratledge, Wyatt) recorded in Holland.
Recorded just after the band had finished recording "Volume Two", this is an exciting document of that band performing that material, but really pushing the needles into the red as they do so (the band was famously LOUD at that point in their life) as they rip and ROAR through the material in a way hugely different from the very polite "Volume II"....

"Soft Machine were the grooviest, coolest psychedelic band of the era..."-Phil Manzanera.

The Soft Machine were one of England's original and best psychedelic bands, emerging out of the same "UFO Club" London scene at the same time as Pink Floyd. While the band would always undergo constant personnel and stylistic change, their best known lineup in their psychedelic days was the trio of Kevin Ayers-bass, guitar, vocals, Mike Ratledge-organ and Robert Wyatt-drums, vocals. They played many shows...

Released for the very first time here is the Soft Machine's television broadcast, recorded for Germany's famous "NDR Jazz Workshop" on May 17, 1973. This performance was one of the earliest shows by the quartet of Roy Babbington (electric bass), Karl...

The lastest Soft Machine album is, again, a shockingly good jazz/rock album. Shocking that is if you haven’t been paying attention to them in the last four or five years or haven’t had the chance to see them knock it out of the ballpark live, night after

By this time (1973), the band were pretty much a straight-forward fusion ensemble with many of their biggest quirks and oddities excised. And all the quirky old personnel too, with only Mike Ratledge remaining (for the time being at least). Hugh Hoppper left and is replaced by the great (but not as quirky) bassist Roy Babbington along with Karl Jenkins and John Marshall. The band is now 75% comprised of ex-Nucleus players, and while they don't sound like Nucleus at all, they also don't really sound so...

These are the famous (& rather famously disowned by all participants) Giorgio Gomelski deomos from April, 1967, which represent the only recordings by the original quartet formation of the band other than their single: Daevid Allen-guitar, Kevin Ayers-bass/vocals, Mike Ratledge-piano/organ and Robert Wyatt-drums/vocals.
While it is fair enough to say that these recordings are (a) historic, (b) are a must for big fans, (c) allow you to hear some of their later-to-be classic works in their ebryonic...
