Nurse With Wound List

"...an incredibly powerful listening experience. In fact, Heresie is a stunning one-of-a-kind item which has never been duplicated by anyone -- including Univers Zero." – Bill Tilland/All Music Guide

How does a group follow up a auspicous debut..

"Sub Rosa present a reissue of Univers Zero's second album Heresie, originally released in 1979. 2010 remixed version (Cuneiform Records). A classic of chamber rock music, featuring heavy use of dissonance and dark, brooding, and extremely complex melodies. Includes insert."

"This music on this LP might have little to do with rock, and might also be a massive downer, but the quality of the writing and playing is extremely high. Michel Berckmans' solo work on oboe and bassoon work is magnificent...

“The music is so complex and tightly played that it is obvious each note from the ensemble was meticulously crafted and placed...an intelligent mix of jazz-rock fusion and classical instrumentation with a very distinctive sound.” – The Scene Online

Implosion features Univers Zero's trademark chamber rock style - a style that they are one of the originators of - subtly modernized, infused with greater classicism and given a sharper, more electric and electronic edge...

"Since the late 70s, Univers Zero composer and drummer Daniel Denis has been pursuing his vision of a chamber music that borrows the energy and production of rock, especially working with stereo extremes, but with a classical ambiance."-John Diliberto/...

For their 11th and definitely their final studio album, [Elvis AND Daniel have left the building, friends], Univers Zero have hugely shaken up their direction from their last release, Clivages.
Gone are many of the trappings of the 'old' Univers Zero. The violin? Gone! The bassoon? Gone!.
The new lineup consists of .
Antoine Guenet-keyboards (also in The Wrong Object).
Nicolas Dechêne-guitar.
Dimitry Evers-bass.
Kurt Budé-clarinet, sax .
Daniel Denis-drums.

This is the first time that UZ’s fine and FINAL album has been released on vinyl.

This great archival release is out of print on CD. These are left-over MARKED PROMO copies from back when we did that sort of thing for these sorts of people.

These are the last copies in existence, and it will not ever be reprinted by us, so if you want this in CD format, strike now!

Univers Zeros New Music fusion of rock and classical music has been discussed by Focus magazine: while ensembles like the Kronos and Brodsky quartets have filtered into the rock world by way of guest appearances or loosely adapting rock music, Univers...

In our 'quest' to rid ourselves of all Univers Zero titles, we are selling our stock of the Japanese version of this title.
It is identical to the standard title, except it has one bonus track which is unavailable elsewhere, "Chasing Rats", written.

Univers Zero play fascinating, modern, chamber music-influenced rock. Simultaneously gothic & futuristic, they are somewhat like the very best of Magma or Crimson, but infinitely darker, with helpings of Eastern European folk melodies added. This band ...

Over 30 years ago, after 3 years of work and rehearsals, a group of seven unknown Belgian musicians gathered in a small basement studio to record their first album, which they released themselves in a tiny edition of 500 copies. The album was untitled...

"...a must for lovers of adventurous music" – Keyboard

"A remarkably subtle weaving of rock, classical, & avant garde tactics..." – Alternative Press

"If Stravinsky had a rock band, it would sound like this. Blazing, white hot, medieval" – Advocate Newspapers

"Univers Zero's vision (is) pretty much unique & for those touched by it, nothing else will quite do...a sound that really couldn't be any other band in the world." ...

"Thanks for the University of Errors. Great BAND!...lovely record." - Robert Wyatt.

"Just got the Jet Propelled Photographs. I like it. Good energetic versions of the songs and Daevid is singing well." - Hugh Hopper


This great title - the only time we at Cuneiform were able to work with Daevid Allen. This title is out of print in physical format and it will not be coming back in physical format, so if you ever wanted this, now is the time, as there are about 13 copies left for sale.

For the first time in 20 years, Gilbert Artman's extraordinary and unique Urban Sax ensemble have released a new work.

Hand-numbered in a gatefold sleeve, the CD and vinyl are identical, while the DVD is different material, featuring a live....

"One of the Keski-Pori parish priests entered the pulpit and managed to turn on the microphone: "You cowards! Every Sunday the pews are empty, but NOW you are here!"...The Urban Sax muummies stood untouched. The whooping and stomping coninued."-from the newspaper account of the performance.

Finally for the first time in something like two decades, there is a reasonably priced release by this quintessential French avant / art / performance band and spectacle. Recorded in a church on July 12, 1984...

The first vinyl reissue in many, many years of this classic one-off release that's *almost* a Amon Duul II album, but isn't quite an Amon Duul II album. It's still really good though....

"It seems that even in 1973 Amon Düül II still wanted to do double albums! But, instead of making WOLF CITY into a double, somehow this side-line project came in to being, fronted by three musicians who had earlier worked together in Passport (on their debut LP). Although since reissued as an Amon Düül II album...

"After years of mythology, misinterpretation, and procrastination Nurse With Wound's Steven Stapleton finally chooses Finders Keepers as the ideal collaborators to release "the right tracks" from his über-legendary psych/prog/punk peculiarity shopping list known as The Nurse With Wound List, commencing with a French specific Volume One of this authentically titled Strain Crack Break series. Featuring some Finders Keepers' regulars amongst galactic Gallic rarities, this double-vinyl dossier demystifies...

A reprint of an early lp dedicated to the electronic and electro-acoustic modern composers of TODAY! An early classic of the genre and still excellent listening TODAY!...

Subtitled "Experimental German Rock And Electronic Musik 1972-83", this is a really excellent compilation of German progressive/electronic/krautrock/kosmiche musik. The only bad thing about this is that at this point, many/most of you already own all...

"Pianos in the Kitchen, the fifth volume of Orange Mountain's series From the Kitchen Archives, features piano music played at New York City's famous venue The Kitchen. Performances include music by Philip Glass (Mad Rush), Meredith Monk (Traveling...

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...

"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...

"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...

“Verto (aka Vertø) was chiefly the project of Toulouse (France) based guitarist Jean-Pierre Grasset circa 1974 to '79. Verto involved members of Potemkine in the early days, playing a hybrid of rock fusions close the Zeuhl style. Often Verto would be Monsieur Grasset alone, doing live multi-track work on his guitar with delay/foldback in the vein of Manuel Göttsching or Steve Hillage. Other members included Benoît Widemann (from Magma) and Jean-Pierre Fouquey (from Forgas and later in Magma).”

...

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...

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...
