Nurse With Wound List

"Cluster's hiatus between Curiosum and Apropos Cluster in 1990 lasted for almost 10 years. Roedelius and Moebius spent this time developing their individual musical characteristics in a series of solo albums and collaborations which they released with...

Excellent final release by the pioneers of electronic music in Germany. These two musicians are old enough to be your father or grandfather, yet here they are making new, interesting, cutting-edge music.

"Reissue of the last studio album by Cluster, the legendary krautronic duo of Dieter Moebius and Hans-Joachim Roedelius, recorded in Ohio in 2009 by Tim Story. From Story's liner notes: "My role, as I imagined it, was to emulate Conny Plank, the great Cluster producer and a hero I'd never had a...

Originally released in 1976 and their last as a duo before recording their two famous albums with Brian Eno, this has been relatively difficult to find for some time until now.

"The fourth full-length album by legendary German electronic music duo Cluster, originally released on Sky Records in 1976. Sowiesoso follows on from their most highly-acclaimed album, Zuckerzeit (1974). Michael Rother's influence was clearly audible on the latter, Cluster already having recorded two albums with him under..

These shows from Cluster's 1996 US tour are shockingly great and up to par! Recommended if you don't already have these recordings!

"This release consists of tracks from Purple Pyramid's 1997 CD First Encounter Tour 1996, reworked and reselected.

Nice to have this classic spacey/ambient album generally available again. This was the first collaboration, recorded when Eno's star was at its zenith, between him and the great German electronic duo. I remember my first record store job, around 1978...

"Live In Vienna is the eighth full-length album by German electronic music outfit Cluster and their first and only album with Joshi Farnbauer. It is the first of three live albums recorded by Cluster. Until now Cluster & Farnbauer had never been...

Reading the release blather below makes me feel so old; I remember when the cassette of this was released; I never did get to hear that cassette, but I can finally hear this now!

"Live In Vienna is the eighth full-length album by German electronic music outfit Cluster and their first and only album with Joshi Farnbauer. It is the first of three live albums recorded by Cluster.
On June 12, 1980 Cluster performed at the Wiener Festwochen Alternativ with Farnbauer. The performance was recorded..

"How curious it is that this collaboration should come about so late in the day and how marvelous that it transpired at all. Lloyd Cole, this most ingenious of British singer-songwriters, and Hans-Joachim Roedelius, a patriarch of German electronic...

Recorded live in 97,this is a new release by Marian Vargas well known classical rock trio, that is totally in keeping with their 70s sound; no digital drum updates, no unwanted pop songs. This is the real deal! Performed solely on Hammond organ, with b...

Reissues a 1981 double. Varga has added a lot of additional keyboards, & the sound is less straight-forward classical rock. Pretty good, but not the best by this band. [Bonton]

Originally released on Ultima Spiaggia in 1976, this was the first of two brilliant albums this composer and keyboardist released.

This is NOT your typical Italian progressive rock CD, and will appeal to fans of avant-progressive artists like...

The fourth by this Spanish quintet who use elements of Catalan folk music mixed in with their jazz/rock fusion sound. This is from 1978 and features electric and Spanish guitar, Fender Rhodes, acoustic piano and moog, soprano sax, bass and drums. Not a...

"The seminal British progressive rock/folk band Comus is back. Their classic debut album, First Utterance, release in 1971, is on just about anybody who's anybody's list of "Desert Island" records. East Of Sweden is a live CD recorded at the Melloboat...

Classic, DARK freak folk release from 1971 that didn't sound like anything else in the air at that time (and still doesn't). This also includes their very rare, non-lp EP of the same time.

"If you're lucky, very very occasionally, an album comes along which completely blows you away, and you know it will be with you for life. It goes on heavy heavy rotation, and your life BECOMES the album for a while, and you know you'll never be quite the same again. Many strange threads coincided which...

Everything by this famous weird and very 'out' progressive folk band, who actually included bassoonist Lindsay Cooper (Henry Cow) for a while! Includes both albums (First Utterance and To Keep From Crying), their impossibly rare EP and even a post...

Legit, 180 gram, vinyl reissue of the dark, classic first. With insert.

"If you're lucky, very very occasionally, an album comes along which completely blows you away, and you know it will be with you for life. It goes on heavy heavy rotation, and your life BECOMES the album for a while, and you know you'll never be quite the same again. Many strange threads coincided which eventually led me to listen to the 1971 album by Comus, "First Utterance". I was instantly hooked (something that never...

The minimal masterpiece and always the rarest Faust artifact from the 70s. A fantastic work. Hugely recommended to fans of minimalism.

"Violinist, composer and filmmaker Tony Conrad started his career in New York in the early 1960s. As a member of the Theater of Eternal Music (a.k.a. the Dream Syndicate) alongside John Cale, La Monte Young, Marian Zazeela and Angus MacLise, he participated in now-legendary and often legendarily loud drone performances with many pieces having no beginning and no...

"This double CD set collects together, amongst other things, all of Outtakes for Other Occasions and The Small Screen, both of which were never commercially released, all four pieces from The Classic Guide to NoMansLand, the subscription 7” Pictures...

This is a heavy one, with a lot of metallic edges mixed with the acoustic elements. Not really reminiscent of King Crimson in any way to my ears, but a good album.

"'Sign of the Crow' is the eagerly awaited 6th studio album from the David Cross Band featuring ex-King Crimson violinist David Cross with Jinian Wilde (voice), Paul Clark (guitar), Alex Hall (keyboards) Mick Paul (bass) and Craig Blundell (drums). Progressive rock at its very best."

"The music in this box set does indeed demonstrate masterful arrangements of sounds and sources, movement and melody, humour and seriousness, that can well be described as magical. It is also a set of unpredictable keys and ciphers, revealing a unique worldview where high artistic rigour meets continual openness to chance and serendipity. In this, Holger not only cut and pasted music, but time, place and mindsets, when such things in popular culture were not only technically near impossible, but...

Early German jazz and beyond supersession, recorded in 1967 for SABA, who eventually went bust and reappeared as MPS. Wolfgang Dauner-piano, prepared piano, Jean-Luc Ponty-violin, Gerd Dudek-tenor sax, clarinet, Eberhard Weber-cello, Jürgen Karg-bass...

Gatefold, legit reissue of an album recorded in 1969 and originally released by Wolfgang himself in 1970 and then later licensed to and released by Brain in 1972!
The band is:
Wolfgang Dauner-piano, organ, flute
Siegfried Schwabb-guitar
Eberhard Weber-bass, cello
Fred Braceful & Roland Wittich-drums

Proto-kozmigroov, with major psychedelic and soulful moves and great, grooving, double-drumming! Comparable to, and absolutely as good as Brian Auger's work of the same era.

"They were exciting years, when Miles Davis used to drive through New York in an open sports car listening to Stockhausen's tape manipulations, and when Kraftwerk and Can in Düsseldorf and Cologne developed their own special style of Kraut rock. Experimentation with electronic music, and research into all its possibilities, were very exciting, but could be extremely frustrating too, especially under live conditions. "There were no instructions, no one who could help you to find the different sounds and...

Nice, mostly mellow improvised session by Elton, Hugh, Vince (drums) and Frances (keyboards - mostly piano, but even accordion at times). Not an earth-shaking release, but if you are a fan of Elton or Hugh's work (or even Vince and Frances), you will...

Begun as an Italian jazz rock band in the '70s featuring Fiorenzo Michele Bonansone (keyboards, cello, vocals), Marco Di Castri (guitar, sax), Furio Di Castri (bass) and Enrico Grosso (drums), Dedalus released two albums in 1973 and 1974.

In 2003 Bonansone decided to revive the spirit of Dedalus. Assisted by two classical musicians and a drummer with a thing for funky and African rhythms, he released "Nomos Apache Alpha" as the Bonansone Dedalus Group.

"Moritz R®, Kurt Dahlke aka Pyrolator, and Frank Fenstermacher have met in the studio after 25 years and recorded a new album. One can claim that Der Plan was one of the most powerful German bands during the time of musical departure at the beginning of the 1980s. Der Plan was always more than a band: a kind of three-headed Renaissance man, for whom visual art was just as important as music.
The Ata Tak label, founded by the three members, was one of the first continental European indie labels and...

"The legendary French painter and sculptor Jean Dubuffet exalted naivety and spontaneity in visual art, and his brazenly experimental recordings on Musical Experiences evince the same spirit through sound. He once reflected, “Certain unexpected windfalls ... come of improvising on an instrument one doesn’t really know how to use.”
Dubuffet, who famously founded the art brut (or outsider art) movement, began making music in the early 1960s with avant-garde figure Asger Jorn. With no training, they...

Legit reissue from the analog masters of the very first album from this German group, which predate the much, much better known Time Machine and Electric Silence. This very rare 1972 album is the very first version of the band before they would move...

Dzyan are known for their great second and third albums on the Bacillus label: Time Machine and Electric Silence from 1973 & 1974.

But before those albums, and after their first album, the group consisted of bassist/double bassist/founder...

Legitimate vinyl reissue, taken from the original analog masters.
An undeservedly obscure German psychedelic jazz/rock band. By the time of this, their 3rd album, from 1973, they had their best-known line-up of:
Eddy Marron (guitars, sitar, zaz, tambura, mellotron, voice)
Reinhard Karwatky (bass, superstring, mellotron, synthesizer)
Peter Giger (drums, percussion)
Trippy tracks featuring Eastern/middle Eastern motifs, jazz fusion power & psychedelic mind expansion. Highly recommend

Very excellent, early instrumental jazz rock band, somewhat influenced by the Mothers Of Invention, Soft Machine & their own "krautrockness". Featuring guitar, keyboards (Rainer Brninghaus!), sax, bass & drums, they released just 2 albums in their life...

"Being in Berlin at the time, they soon caught the attention of of the enthusiastic Rolf-Ulrich Kaiser who signed them up for his 'new German folk music label" Pilz. The album Saat was a truly progressive folk masterpiece, with the beautiful 'English' vocals of Dolly Homes and occasionally the contrastingly Teutonic voice of Maik...

Hmmmm...Eno, Moebius & Roedelius...that would make this.... The second of two releases by Cluster and Eno, released in 1978, this follows onward from their classic first album. Nice to have this classic spacey/ambient album generally available again. This was recorded when Eno's star was at its zenith.

"Originally released in 1978 on Sky Records, After The Heat was the second collaborative release by Brian Eno with Dieter Moebius and Hans-Joachim Roedelius (Cluster). Produced once again by Conny...

First-ever reissue and made from the master tapes (and including 4 bonus tracks found on the original mater tapes; one of which is available nowhere else!) of this famous, rare, classic Kraturock/early jazz-rock album featuring a all-star group...

Now out of print in CD physical form world-wide, except for this beautiful, mini-lp sleeve replica.
This reissues the Etron's 1st album, from early 1977. This is certainly their most dada/out album, and I have a real soft spot for it in my heart, but I wouldn't recommend you start here unless your interest is more in general French craziness than in the superb musicality that came later.

Etron Fou were one of the premier French avant/progressive bands from 1974-1986, & a founding member of R.I.O. This reissues the Etron's 5th album, which came out in early 1984. With the grat line-up of Bruno Meillier-saxes, Ferdinand Richard-bass...

Etron Fou were one of the premier French avant/progressive bands from 1974-1986, & a founding member of R.I.O. This reissues the Etron's 2nd album; their first totally great release, which was originally recorded 11/77, and self-released in 1978.
This version of the band: Francis Grand (saxes, vocals), Ferdinand Richard (bass, vocals) and Guigou Chenevier (drums, vocals) was active between 9/76 and 3/78 and did more touring than any other version of the band; this is the band that I saw open for....

"The famous lost Exmagma album finally on the loose! What a long strange trip it has been... As one of the hand-selected chosen few who own a tape copy for a couple of years, it’s as much a great joy as it is a relief to live to see a proper (though 3 decades delayed) release of the masterpiece of one of the most inventive Krautbands and one of Konrad Plank’s best ever production jobs.
If you’ve ever seen the band on stage you knew that the problem with the two Exmagma releases always was...

Exmagma were a mostly instrumental crazy German jazz/rock trio of Thomas Baluff (organ & piano), Andy Goldner (guitar, bass, alto sax) and Fred Braceful (drums).
They recorded two albums, including this very rare and quite strange 1st album (this one) that I never saw until it was reissued many, many years later. This one had elements of fusion, but was really quite whacked, and which got them on the Nurse With Wound List.
By the way, their original name was Magma, and then they found out about..
