Nurse With Wound List

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...

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..

Licensed from Jean Cohen-Solal. Includes eight-page booklet. Clear vinyl; Obi strip; Edition of 700.

"The first ever vinyl reissue of Jean Cohen-Solal's Captain Tarthopom, originally released in 1973.
"Nothing can stop a flutist. We can do whatever we want, whatever we feel. My flute, is a mirror of myself. I express feelings more easily with the flute than with language." This is what Jean Cohen-Solal said on the cover of his first album released in 1972, Flûtes Libres, renowned for its...

“The first ever reissue of Jean Cohen-Solal's Flûtes Libres, originally released in 1972. In a dreamlike fictive and windswept Brittany, hippy pirates and wild women more or less inspired by Gérard de Nerval fight it out in a theater, the magic of which brings to mind Cocteau, and where musical improvisation has an important role: this is Noroît, a cursed film which was never released in cinemas at the time (1976), directed by the great Jacques Rivette, where Jean-Cohen-Solal, his brother Robert and...

"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]

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...

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...

"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...

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."

This is a previously unreleased set of music from 2006 that is only seeing release now.
David Cross was in King Crimson from 1972-1974 and Andrew Booker has played in No-Man, Sanguine Hum and Peter Bank’s group Harmony in Diversity, which is where he was when he met Cross.
There’s really good development and flow on this one and why it stayed unreleased for so long definitely has nothing to do with the quality of the sounds!

"I met Andrew some years ago when the David Cross Band were...

"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."

"Two members of the groundbreaking mid 1970s King Crimson line-up unite on a fascinating album length exploration of a melody - composed by David Cross and Robert Fripp - that emerged as one of the key themes on the King Crimson masterpiece, Starless...

For a number of years in the late 90s, Chris traveled the the world, giving solo performances on his specially made electric kit and various acoutrements.
I’m biased because I saw several of these concerts (and even put on at least one), but they were very different, very entertaining and very much completely NOT what you would expect a ‘solo drum concert’ to sound like, probably because it wasn’t a ‘solo drum concert’. Conditionally recommended!!

"Here at last, a solo electronic drum...

“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...

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...

You will not believe that this ugly slab of punk rock and art-noise emerged from Chickasha Oklahoma in 1976.

“The band were said to be high on acid when they recorded this in Oklahoma in 1975; not surprising then that the result is demented avant-garde proto-punk psychedelia, with modulators and synthesizers, a vibraharp (and more) utilised to good effect; the album is now considered a pivotal mid-70s effort from the American private press underworld, and as such has been hailed in Ugly Things....

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.
