Nurse With Wound List

The TEB were a late 60s/mid 70s quartet who were fixtures at ALL the festivals & who used hand drums, oboe, violin/viola & cello to make a mostly improvised, dark, pagan & medieval-influenced, acoustic music. The only thing that comes close to their so...

I'm sure that some of you remember Roberto Musci, who, along with Giovanni Venosta, released a few charming, electronic filled albums on ReR. Read on for what this album is:

"The way of improvisation and composition that Third Ear band generates is a unique music; a music that wrap and alienate you. The use of modal improvisations, with pentatonic and eptatonic scales derived from Arabian and Indian music culture, the mixing of particular timbre, the use of percussive rhythms with a metric...

First-ever legitimate reissue from mastertapes of Thirsty Moon's third album, originally released on Brain in 1975.

"This is Thirsty Moon' s 3rd album, originally recorded in 1974, released early 1975 on famous German label Brain...

"In 1975 we got together with keyboardist and vocalist Gerd Lueken and bassist Heinz Sander so as to perform live once more as Thirsty Moon. Both musicians used to play in the Bremen band “Train”. Since our album “Blitz” had been published that year, the record company helped again with promotion and had pictures taken from the four band members. This was the formation we played in on May 29th in the “Lila Eule” in Bremen, where we did a live recording with a stereo tape recorder. There were merely two...

This is a surprisingly good sounding (but still of quite good bootleg quality only) document of Thirsty Moon late in their life. At this point, they were playing a rather jazz/rock influenced progressive and I totally enjoyed this disc and krautrock or...

First-ever legitimate reissue from mastertapes of Thirsty Moon's first album, originally released on Brain in 1972.
"Always essentially the project of the Drogies brothers, Thirsty Moon came into being in September 1971 as the amalgamation of D.R.P. (Drogies Rock Project) and Shakespears (apparently a jazz-soul band), resulting in a very big group (seven to eight members) performing complex rock that used unusual jazz structures as its base. Obviously influenced by the likes of Colosseum, the Chicago...

This Heat were a UK trio who were probably the closest that we've come to the original, groundbreaking Faust albums - a band that understood & used the studio as an integral part of their sound. Unlike Faust, they were (a) a great live act & (b) much..

"Between “Blue & Yellow” and “Deceit” came the EP, “Health & Efficiency”. It bridges a gap between the mostly improvisational former, and the highly composed latter, showing great diversity in the band’s sound in general, as well as nicely documenting their two extreme directions.
The title track is This Heat’s single most high-energy piece ever, and is a tour de force of singing, ensemble playing and sound texture; It is propelled along by Charles Bullen’s signature guitar strumming & ratcheting...

For my money, this is something of a dissapointment. The recorded sound is not particularly good and there were much better sounding documents to choose from. Why the band chose these particular recordings is beyond me...

“In many ways, the nuanced sound worlds created in the studio by This Heat are tailor made for sedentary headphone listening. But pulling off such complicated, genre defying compositions live was surely something to witness. Until now, there was no real official document of the group’s live performances. Compiled by Charles Hayward and Charles Bullen from rough cassette tape recordings of European gigs in Tilburg, Nijmegen, Ärhus, Apeldoorn, Vienna and Rheims between April 1980 and June 1981, Live 80-81...

Great sounding and spirited shows from the John Peel show. Recommended.

"This Heat’s earliest public recordings came from two sessions for John Peel’s BBC radio show, in April and October of 1977. Peel was one of their greatest enthusiasts at the time, hearing excellence in the band’s mixed repertoire of post-krautrock songs and uniquely approached improvisation. Of special merit here is the band’s maverick use of real-time tape loops to augment their basic three-piece sound, as well as their...

“Made Available collects This Heat’s two Peel Sessions, recorded for BBC Radio 1 in April and October of 1977 and features essential songs that would later appear on their debut album, This Heat (1979) and the follow-up, Deceit (1981), as well as electro-acoustic works unique to these sessions. These are the earliest public recordings of the band, showing even in their infancy, masterful use of live tape loops and radical song structure.”

Long awaited release of all recordings of This Heat, this includes remastered versions of their self-titled first (aka Blue and Yellow), Deceit, Health & Efficiency (padded out to a longer length with a second version of the drone piece), Made Available, Repeat and Live, which has never before been released!
Just as importantly, the booklet is very substantial, hugely interesting and even a bit funny. The veil on the enigmatic workings of the band are finally lifted.
Working at a time in London.

"Repeat is This Heat’s fourth album proper, posthumously released in 1993. It harbours the most extreme musical side of This Heat’s experimental tendencies on disc, and is assuredly the band’s most radical offering. The title track is an oxymoron: An extended/edited version of the piece “24 Track Loop”, which had been previously issued on the Recommended Records’ double lp sampler in 1981, heard here sans the harmonizer effect. The original tracks were produced by David Cunningham (Flying Lizards)...

”Recorded from 1979–1980 Repeat / Metal is essentially This Heat’s third proper album, although it was released posthumously in 1993. Arguably their most radical work, Repeat / Metal features side-length tape experiments ranging from the dubby drum loops of “Repeat,” a 20 minute edit / reworking of their landmark piece “24 Track Loop” to the gamelan-inspired sounds of “Metal,” an electro-acoustic work recorded outside of their studio, Cold Storage, and helmed by member Gareth Williams.”

This Heat's amazingly good first album, first released in 1979, and consisting of several years worth of creative and hard work, distilled down into 40-some minutes of gripping music. At a time when, except for punk, there wasn't much happening in creative music, This Heat showed that there was another path. Remastered by the group in 2005.

"Produced in collaboration with the legendary Jac Berrocal's label d'Avantage, More Intra Musique is the second LP in Alga Marghen's series dedicated to previously unreleased recording by the drummer and experimentalist Jacques Thollot.

“The first ever vinyl reissue of Jacques Thollot's Quand Le Son Devient Aigu, Jeter La Girafe À La Mer, originally released in 1971. While he was still just a young adolescent who had perfected his drum technique under the benevolent wing of Kenny Clarke, the Club Saint-Germain liked to present Jacques Thollot as a prodigy capable of holding his own with the famous jazz musicians who came through Paris. It was there that Eric Dolphy immediately noticed him, and from René Thomas to Walt Dickerson....

Unless you were there, I can not begin to explain just how controversial TG were back in the late 70s. This, along with the included single, were their opening salvos and actually may be their best work. The pioneers of noise music in rock.

“Part Two: The Endless Not was originally released in 2007, and was the band’s first full length studio record in 25 years.
Pitchfork wrote, “The Endless Not features some of the subtlest songwriting of TG’s career, playing that knot of tension for all its worth and all the more disturbing for how pensive and restrained it feels”. PopMatters said that the album “sounds like a core of musicians who have rediscovered whatever spark it was that led them to create the entity that they are now so often...

Paolo Tofani was the great, great guitarist of the great, great Italian avant/progressive rock ensemble Area. This album of 'acoustic tricanta veena' music (Veena is a Indian stringed instrument) was recorded in India and is an interesting and great blend of Indian music and avant-guitaring sounds.

Unconditionally recommended if you like Indian music. Conditionally recommended if you like Area.

How did he manage to.

This archival release by Sweden's rightly legendary Trad Gras och Stanar is revelatory and it's great to see it again after it being out of print for a number of years.
The final culmination of the musicians from Parson Sound, Harvester & International Harvester, this archival release is the stoner/pounding id classic with equal influences from Terry Riley and The Monks you would want it to be! Highly recommended!

Comprising some of the earliest, uninhibited performances from musicians behind groundbreaking European records and films, Free Jazz captures the birth of an exciting movement that would soon earn its Parisian birthplace as the go-to European spiritual home of improvised and avant-garde music. Spearheaded by pianist and composer François Tusques, this 1965...

"In May 1972 Twenty Sixty Six And Then met first time and decided to found a band. Day and night they rehearsed and filed on their sound in their residence in Mannheim.
A journalist at that time wrote, "Dominating in their music is a dynamic, which is regulatory in the developing harmonies in the complex structured arrangements. When the musicians sometimes get lost in old hard rock stereotypes they kept enough distance to the sounds, to prove their intents with detailed inserted alienation." ...
