Nurse With Wound List

"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...

Not your typical Italian progressive rock CD, this is pretty much unknown and definitely a BIG winner. A huge instrumentation consisting of guitars, bass, drums, percussion, xylophone, keyboards, trombones, trumpets, tuba, clarinets, saxes, flutes, string quartet and vocalists is used as needed. Highly recommended!

"Reissue from master tapes of this avant-progressive album originally released on Ultma Spiaggia in the mid 1970's. Great horn charts. Perhaps a little bit reminsicent of Zappa circa...

“Previously unreleased recordings by various line-ups drawn from Derek Bailey, Tristan Honsinger, Christine Jeffrey, Toshinori Kondo, Charlie Morrow, David Toop, Maarten Altena, Georgie Born, Lindsay Cooper, Steve Lacy, Radu Malfatti, and Jamie Muir.
Journalists often make the brief history of free improvisation conform to the idea that the history of music is a nice straight line from past to present: Beethoven... Brahms... Boulez. Thus Derek Bailey, Evan Parker, and John Stevens -- together...

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...

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...

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...

"If you thought you heard the last from Stratos...you were wrong...this is a great CD that mixes prog elements and experimentation with no wave/punk rock ...and then adds a legendary Italian Rock singer (Demetrio Stratos) for good measure.
By using tapes from a producer friend who had taped one of Stratos' last concerts as a solo artist, the guys in the quartet found a new muse for their punky yet experimental misbehaviors.
A great, fun listen! They even do a cover of Area's Cometa Rosa!"

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...

"David Cross was the violinist with the King Crimson band which created 'Larks' Tongues in Aspic' and Andrew Keeling is a contemporary composer and flautist. The two musicians collaborated on a series of improvisations, which has evolved into this beautiful collection of electric violin and flute duets, 'English Sun'. There is a common heritage at work here that goes far deeper than it's clear classical and rock components. This is new music by anybody's standard."

"David Cross was a member of King Crimson during the 1970s and David Jackson was a member of Van der Graaf Generator. This new studio album also features Mick Paul on bass, Craig Blundell on drums and was produced by Jake Jackson. The 12 new tracks on this album showcase the talents of Cross & Jackson and will appeal to the fanbases of both artists and the bands they have been in. It's an innovative meeting of minds."

"So, what have we here?
David Cross from the King Crimson of "Larks Tongues.

First ever CD issue of this weird, sort-of-systems-music release from 1976!

“David Cunningham was born in Ireland in 1954. His work ranges from pop music to gallery installations including several collaborations with visual artists. His first significant commercial success came with The Flying Lizards' single "Money," an international hit in 1979.

“American composer and multi-instrumentalist Alvin Curran has remained one of the great emblems of experimental music for the last half-century. In 1966, along with Frederic Rzewski and Richard Teitelbaum, Curran co-founded Musica Elettronica Viva, a seminal gesture in collective free improvisation. In the early ’70s, his solo work would become a crucial bridge between minimalist traditions on both sides of the Atlantic.
Canti E Vedute Del Giardino Magnetico, Curran’s solo debut, was recorded by....

“Two giants on great form: Alvin spookily surefooted in deployment of his often counterintuitive palette of sounds, Jon just stunning – in a partnership that provides perfect context for both performers. And it’s beautifully recorded. I know this stuff is a hard sell, but it deserves better; this is proper musicianship and it embodies a lifetime of research and performance coupled with some exquisite musical thinking, and no sense of complacency; a master-class. Dense and complex with passages of simple...

“To make public a mass of unreleased material I decided to wrap this musical collection into a box. These 10 CDs (and a audio DVD) include over five hours of unreleased materials, my three previously released solo CDs (‘solo’, ‘twice around the earth’ and ‘there and back again’), plus a double CD collection of tracks spanning 50 years of official recordings (It Makes Sense to Me), as well as the 22-hour radio programme I made for Radio Art Zone last year (that’s on the DVD).

Mostly co-written, but also taking in Satie, Bach, Eisler, Handel...

“There must have been something special going on in Verona last April; neither of these old sparring partners from Henry Cow and Art Bears can remember anything about this concert! By far the most aggressive of their duo albums, it leads us via howling fuzz guitar and machine gun percussion into walls of post-rock improvisation, obsessive industrial rhythms, and levels of excitement rarely generated by two people on a stage. The album is remarkable for Chris and Fred's rediscovery of melody and time...

“Der Osten Ist Rot starts off with the atrocious "Photo Song" which reeks of mid-80s banality and, open first listen, suggests that Czukay had completely lost his relevance. But if you can make it past that first track, the remainder of the album is completely out there - so much so that I am surprised Virgin released it - with only "Das Massenmedium" offering anything catchy, albeit still firmly within a left-of-center approach. In fact, once you've grown accustomed to Der Osten Ist Rot's warped...

Czukay's second album continues his fascination with and expermentation of using recordings from radio, television, short-wave and more, and 'gluing' non-similar sources together and making something unique from them, but also something that 'works' musically.
In the pre-sampling days of 1979, when this was first released, incorporating recordings off of the tv and radio into already existing songs was a fairly amazingly weird thing to be doing. For my tastes, this is his best realized solo album...

“I was about to give up on Czukay, but then he released this, easily his best work since Der Osten Ist Rot. Moving Pictures is an elusive, understated, and fleeting album, perfectly replicating that liminal stage between sleep and wakefulness. The space between the sounds is just as important as the sounds themselves. A really unique work that is also notable for the lyrical content of the final track, which preempts The Matrix.”-rateyourmusic

“Upon examining the eventful life of Can bassist Holger Czukay, one might come to the conclusion that this intrepid musician was a loner. His turbulent career exuded an enduring eccentricity governed by a boundless free spirit. Yet Czukay, who passed away unexpectedly last year at the age of 79, constantly emphasized that his creativity was always contingent upon a musical partner, whether that was a skin-and-bones counterpart or an anonymous manifestation that interacted with him through radio waves or...

"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...

This is the first ever vinyl reissue of this FABULOUS album, originally released in 1972. It's really quite a supergroup of (mostly German) jazz and jazz/rock personnel:
Wolfgang Dauner-keyboards, electronics

Jon Hiseman-drums
Fred Braceful-drums

There's a lot of that early fusion sound, but there's also that typical 'out' thang that only the Germans seemed to be able to do. Fans of 70s jazz/rock and also of the more jazz/rock aspec

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.

“With the demise of the group Wire in 1980, founder members Bruce Gilbert and Graham Lewis joined forces to create Dome. With the assistance of engineer Eric Radcliffe and his Blackwing Studio Dome took the ethic of "using the studio as a compositional tool" and recorded and released three Dome albums on their own label in the space of 12 months: Dome (July, 1980), Dome 2 (October, 1980), and Dome 3 (October 1981).
