Nurse With Wound List

AKA "The young hipsters meet the original hipsters." Here are veteran (nearly all French) musicians from the post 1968 movement, all of whom are still active alongside their relatively young 'heirs', gathered together for 13 exclusive collaborations...

“The Velvet Underground's meeting with Andy Warhol in 1965 just about sealed their fate. Straight into Warhol's Factory base in early '66, where rehearsals for their pending debut record soon took place, somehow Andy managed to persuade a local NYC radio station to broadcast live during the best of these sessions, and while few hearing this transmission would have had much of a clue as to what was going down, this recording is now a legendary piece of musical history that every fan of the extraordinary...

“One would be hard-pressed to name a rock album whose influence has been as broad and pervasive as The Velvet Underground & Nico. While it reportedly took over a decade for the album's sales to crack six figures, glam, punk, new wave, goth, noise, and nearly every other left-of-center rock movement owes an audible debt to this set. While The Velvet Underground had as distinctive a sound as any band, what's most surprising about this album is its diversity. Here, the Velvets dipped their toes into dreamy..

"The world of pop music was hardly ready for The Velvet Underground's first album when it appeared in the spring of 1967, but while The Velvet Underground and Nico sounded like an open challenge to conventional notions of what rock music could sound...

First-ever CD release for this solo album by a member of the infamous French underground band Red Noise. This was released in 1976 on the very active and much loved French progressive Egg label. Many of you remember this one!...

Terje Rypdal - guitar
Stale Storløkken - keyboards
Palle Mikkelborg-trumpet
Paolo Vinnacia-drums

Paolo Vinaccia is an Italian composer, drummer and percussionist, based in Norway. for nearly 40 years.
This fairly wonderful set documents 5 shows by a great group led by Terje Rypdal, which usually goes under the name of Skywards, but for whatever reason (cough cough ECM) released under Paolo's name.
The important thing isn't whose name it came out under, but that such an...

“The pop immediacy of the songs is enriched by experimental tangents, between electronic music, krautrock and jazz, which raise the bar to unexpected heights.” (Le Soir, BE)

“A miracle: the resurrected Aksak Maboul unfolds a brand of synthetic, carnal pop, with fat, enchanting grooves, sparkling melodies and lyrics.” (Telerama, FR)

"Impressed and charmed by Véronique Vincent & Aksak Maboul's acclaimed 'lost' avant-pop opus , a host of artists from all over the place have launched into.

Never before released, high quality live recordings from the band's 1983 German tour! This features Michel Berckmans-oboe/bassoon, Eino Haapala,-guitar, Lars Hollmer-keyboards, Hans Loelv...

“A never released before recording by French avant-garde electronic composer Igor Wakhevitch.
Wakhevitch composed a bunch of major experimental albums in the '70s, such as Logos (1970), Docteur Faust (1971), Hathor (1972), Les Fous D'or (1975), Nagual (1977), and Let's Start (1979). During this 10-year period, Wakhevitch was close to Jean-Michel Jarre, Pink Floyd, Soft Machine, and legendary choreographer Maurice Bejart having with him many conversations around dance and music, human body and soul...

"Wire’s first three albums need no introduction. They are the three classic albums on which Wire’s reputation is based. Moreover, they are the recordings that minted the post-punk form. This was adopted by other bands, but Wire were there first. These are the definitive re-releases. Each album is presented as an 80-page hardback book – the size of a 7-inch, but obviously much thicker. After a special introduction by Jon Savage, Graham Duff provides insight into each track. These texts include recording...

York University's music department houses one of the UK's first ever electronic music studios, and during the early seventies it was a hotbed of creative activity. Much of the released output from the studio at this time revolved around the work of the...

"Although Machine was completed in 1971 it was not released until 1973, shortly after the release of Journey Into Space. Machine is therefore the first major composition by Trevor Wishart. It was composed at York University and was originally issued on...

When Henry Cow fell apart in the summer of 1978, the main players in the band dispersed. Fred Frith left England to settle in NYC for a good number of years, getting involved the then just beginning to evolve 'downtown' sound, recording three excellent and high-profile albums for Ralph Records, forming first Massacre and then Skeleton Crew. Chris Cutler formed the Art Bears and also was an important member of Cassiber. Lindsay Cooper and Georgie Born did a lot of musical improvising and John Greaves had...

"The missing links in my life's work, no less!" – Robert Wyatt

"Cuneiform has delivered a Holy Grail with Robert Wyatt's '68 ... The sound on '68 is excellent; it was painstakingly cleaned up and remastered from original sources, making this a...

This is a 20' CDEP which Robert recorded at home on 4 track in 1992. Keyboards, percussion, vocals, etc.
Obviously not a 'major' work, but a very personal and also completely enjoyable minor one that fans will treasure.

Robert's 2007 album finds him on a new, very hip indie label, getting really good pre-release press and with a large cast of musical helpers: Alessandro Fedrigo - Guitar (Bass), Alfonso Santimone - Keyboards, Piano, Annie Whitehead - Horn (Baritone)...

Robert's 2003 album builds upon the work of Schleep, with many of the same collaborators. It's a very long work by his standards; over 75' of music!
This is long out of print in physical format. We have these copies, with a small mark through the barcode, at a special price while they last!

“Cuckooland, Robert Wyatt's first full-length of new material since 1997's Shleep is no less mischievous, witty, and poignant. As has become his custom, Wyatt offers a set of 16 new songs seemingly...

This release was his second completely solo album, although Alfie contributes lyrics for the first time - really good ones too! - something she continues to do to this day. This is a remixed and resequenced version of this album.

"Due to a budget shortfall, Wyatt's 1991 LP Dondestan (half of which was centered around poems by his wife Alfreda Benge) was released before being properly mixed. In 1998, Dondestan (Revisited) finally gave these songs-which range from the haunting to the humorous-the...

Famous, unreleased radio experiment that showed Robert working in the studio and creating. Not a major work by any means - it's a artist playing with the canvas and thinking and creating - but big fans will find good stuff here, although in much more...

While they last, this is 1/3rd off the regular price.

The first 'post-accident' album by Robert is a classic of great songs, great voice, and emotional depth. With excellent performances from Hugh Hopper, Gary Windo, Richard Sinclair, Laurie Allen, Mongezi Feza.

Vocalist, composer and multi-instrumentalist Robert Wyatt's career extends from the beginings of the psychedelic era to the present day. This album started its life as simply a collection of the two BBC Top Gear sessions that Robert recorded in 1972 an...

This was Robert's 1st solo album, recorded in '70, while still a member of Soft Machine. It is a creative, free-music oriented disc with a lot of charm & goofy humor. Includes Elton Dean, Mark Charig, Neville Whitehead, David Sinclair, & a few others...

Well, 31 years later comes this oft-bootlegged show of Robert's big re-emergence concert after his accident and after the huge success of Rock Bottom. This isn't the *complete* concert - Robert says something about not having complete tapes of the second set - but it is most of it. The sound is unbelievably better than the bootlegs, but it still is not a 'professional sounding' live release from the mid 70's. But who cares? Not me!
The following info was borrowed from Aymeric Leroy's Calyx site....

Around these parts, a new Robert Wyatt album is always a cause for joy. Recently he's been working relatively fast. This is something quite different, as it's a album of six 'standards', a new version of "At Last I Am Free" and four new pieces. Anyone...

"Midline priced reissue of this classic: Pleiades is a percussion piece performed by Les Percussions de Strasbourg (vibraphones, marimbas, xylophones, etc.); richly defined, timeless music that will sound good for the rest of your life."...

Some of us oldsters remember UK Decca's HEAD label, which attempted to market modern classical masters to the 'hip/progressive rock' young'uns in the mid 70s. Did it work? I don't know. But the records were very good, and now they are being reissued, w...

Xhol were one of the earliest Krautrockers, releasing their 1st in 1969. These guys were unknown & undiscovered until the recent Krautrock revival & are still underappreciated. This is over 80' of them at their jammy, jazz/rock, instrumental best...

Xhol were one of the earliest Krautrockers, releasing only 2 albums in their lifetime. This was their 2nd, which was recorded live in July 1st and 2nd, 1970 by Bob Woolford, who they hired their because of their admiration for his work with Soft machin...

Well, this is really something - and who else would bring us a German rarity like this but Garden of Delights? Xhol were one of the earliest Krautrockers, releasing only 2 albums in their lifetime. A must own for fans of Krautrock, these guys were unkn...

"Father Yod and Yahowha 13 ride the eternal now and come up with a psychedelic classic. The story of Father Yod, Yahowa 13 and the Source Family could literally fill books, but rest assured, they truly were the "apex of high" in terms of psychedelic...

"Father Yod and Yahowha 13's most famous release. A swirling mix of philosophy, chants and pure psychedelic bliss. The story of Father Yod, Yahowa 13 and the Source Family could literally fill books, but rest assured, they truly were the "apex of high"...

"Back in the early 70s a curious group owned and operated a health food restaurant in Los Angles. The Source Family was a religious group of young people centered around the father figure of Father Yod, a WWII flying ace and spiritual searcher...

"Quite possibly the most psychedelic album of all time; mysticism meets the fire of improvisational electricity. The story of Father Yod, Yahowa 13 and the Source Family could literally fill books, but rest assured, they truly were the "apex of high" in..

"A very early raga recording of La Monte Young and The Theatre Of Eternal Music. It's unclear who else appears on this material (possibly Dennis Johnson and/or Terry Jennings).
Notable is that, if the year given on the cover is correct, it predates the involvement of Marian Zazeela, Tony Conrad, Angus MacLise and John Cale by roughly two years. This is probably one of the earliest records of the commune.
Founded in 1960 in the area of New York, the Theatre of Eternal Music (a.k.a. The Dream...

"The music of Thierry Zaboitzeff cannot be neatly fitted into any existing musical category. On and off one might be tempted by a few bars which indicate a category but soon enough such certainty is shattered.
If Zaboitzeff is in the mood to sound like a child immersed in games, he will. But if he wishes to create a monster through his music, he can and will do so just as well. His music ranges from light and airy to deep and heavy, it is as diverse as life itself. The music accommodates the...

Samla Mammas Manna was the original band of keyboardist/composer Lars Hollmer. They blended progressive with bits of folk elements & more. This was their last in their original lifetime, & has some simply amazing playing from all, including under-heralded guitar genius Eino Haapala.

"Their second album under their second band name, originally issued by Silence in 1980, now reissued.
Familjesprickor (Family Cracks) was the last album recorded by Zamla Mammaz Manna, until the group went back...

This album marks the beginning of the more experimental side of Samla, who changed their name to Zamla MM to deliniate the difference. Those crazy Swedes! Original guitarist Coste Apetrea left and guitarist Eino Haapla joined. Coste is a great guitaris...

“After falling out with his long-time manager Herb Cohen, Frank Zappa spent much of the late 1970s in a legal battle with Cohen and later with Warner Brothers too. With the majority of his own recorded material thus tied up, Zappa concentrated on touring with a small, rock-oriented band. March 1978 witnessed the release of Zappa In New York, recorded live with a 13-strong band at the Palladium in late December 1976. Demonstrating in equal measure Zappa's extraordinary ability as a composer and fearless
