Nurse With Wound List

"A collaboration between one of Jazz's most important musicians and the main composer from the Residents."

"Hardy Fox grew up in Texas. After college he moved to San Francisco reveling in the free love days of 1967-68. He co-founded the much loved cult band, the Residents, where he was primary composer.
Hardy retired from The Residents in 2015 but continued to compose for the group through 2017."

Great, great album and new, lower price as well!
Keep The Dog was Fred's all-star, late 1980's/early 1990's touring band, which played all over Europe and beyond, but strangely never released anything until 15 years later! The band at the time of these recordings consisted of
Jean Derome (saxes, flute, voice)
Fred Frith (guitar, bass, violin, voice)
Charles Hayward (drums, voice)
Rene Lussier (guitar, bass)
Bob Ostertag (sampler)
Zeena Parkins (accordion, electric harp..

“The long-awaited follow up to their first release on Derek Bailey's Incus label and a kind of prequel, going back to the time when Fred was playing home-made instruments and John was using mouthpieces and duck-calls as much or more than alto sax; this was back in the New York glory days when 100 new ideas popped up somewhere every day, and these performances lie right at the fringe of what most people would accept as "music".

Working together since 1978, the partnership of Zorn and Frith is one of the most enduring musical partnerships in the downtown scene. Their periodic duo concerts have always been special events in themselves, but when it happens in celebration of Zorn...

A new band that Fred has assembled made up of a diverse bunch of West Coast players: Frith Frith (guitar), Miya Masaoka (koto, electronics), Larry Ochs (soprano and tenor sax), Joan Jeanrenaud (cello).

This was recorded live 10/4/86, with some studiowork performed on it later. This is a mostly composed album by these 2 guitarists, with guest work by Chris Cutler, Tenko Ueno, & Christoph Anders. [Victo]

Active since 1978, the dynamic Rova Saxophone quartet has collaborated with and commissioned from some of the world's greatest composers. Here they give a dynamic reading of Fred Frith's major composition Freedom in Fragments, which was written express...

"Compilation 1977-2017 was collected for the exhibit trampelpfadnomainroad at Städtische Galerie Traunstein. Celebrating the art and music of Limpe Fuchs, the exhibition gives insight into her ongoing creative adventures, from the early days of Anima up to her recent and critically-acclaimed body of work. The exhibition is open from September 2nd until September 28th of 2018 at Städtische Galerie Traunstein in Germany. This CD of all unreleased music will be published to celebrate the event."

Semi-infamous soundtrack album to a film that no one has ever seen, featuring 'sound effects technician' Geesin and Pink Floyd vocalist Waters done at around the same time as their collaboration on Atom Heart Mother. Little songs on acoustic guitar, od...

A lost relic of the late days of the initial burst of American minimalism found and presented to the world! "Jon Gibson (b. 1940) is one of the less frequently mentioned pioneering composers of minimal music and is probably best known as a founding member of the Philip Glass Ensemble. Gibson also holds the unique distinction of having performed with Steve Reich, Terry Riley, and La Monte Young (as a member of the Theatre of Eternal Music), in addition to Glass, the four composers widely regarded as the...

Brand new, ultimate Garden Of Delight reissue of this classic, early German prog album from 1971, originally released on BASF. Pretty much universally agreed upon as a must-own classic!

"Here's a long time krautrock classic. Gila impress us with a dynamic, intense and imaginative communication between spacey rock improvisations, lengthy psych guitar solos accompanied by luminous electric organ chords. "Agression" is a cosmic krautrock jamming, strictly instrumental (as the rest of the album)...

Conny Veit (guitar, vocals)
Fritz Scheyhing (keyboards)
Walter Wiederkehr (bass)
Daniel Alluno (drums)

Gila released only 2 albums in their short lifetime; their s/t 1st aka Free Electric Sound and Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee.
This is a extraordinarily valuable archival release of an excellent quality, previously unreleased, live '72 concert by the original line up of Gila, & featuring all previously unheard material in the style of their excellent, freaky, psychedelic first

"Editions Mego's 250th release continues its ongoing legacy of cross-pollinating and perverting various threads of radical 20th century music whilst concocting and propelling further ideas into the nebulous region where we all currently reside. With Ex Nihilo, Editions Mego resumes its enduring relationship with long-term collaborator and stalwart representative of the label's aesthetic with a new release from London's most charming deviant occupant, Bruce Gilbert (formerly of Wire, Dome, etc.)....

Now this is pretty fascinating and also it's in surprisingly high quality sound. This is the 'home demos' that Giles, Giles & Fripp worked on to get themselves their contract with Decca Records, as well as the demos that they worked on during the period of their contract.
There is plenty of material that is essentially just (sometimes significantly better) alternates of the Giles, Giles & Fripp album, but it gets especially amazing as the disc progresses, as the band adds singer Judy Dyble, multi...

One of the progressive hard rock classics of the early 70s German scene, this was the 2nd and final release by this German band, originally released on Brain in 1972. Reissued over 15 years ago for the 1st time, that reissue has been out of print for...

This beautiful, legit reissue includes a gatefold sleeve!
This album has an interesting history and is sort of the band's 1st and 2nd album simultaneously.
Trauma was originally recorded and released in 1970, but the band was unhappy with the work and soon after re-worked and re-recorded the album with English lyrics and a harder 'progressive hard rock' sound with nice organ and guitar work.
This album is best known for the 13' title track, which is a heavy, psychedelic mix of Guru Guru and...

"This is a great Gong reunion album. It was released in 1995 from a progressive rock festival in 1994. Most of the "original" members from the Radio Gnome Invisible days are here. The only major missing persons are Steve Hillage and Pierre Moerlen (who was a late comer anyway). This double CD is about 110 minutes long. It is basically the Radio Gnome Invisible trilogy played in order, starting out with few songs the prequel Camembert Electrique.
But, it isn't a stale reproduction of the albums....

In 1990, there was a short-lived TV series which gathered up as many 70s bands as could be found and had them perform in front of a small live audience to be broadcast and released on video tape. If my memory serves me, Caravan, Hawkwind, The Strawbs, Gong and Hatfield all particpated.
This was one of the first post 70s reunion shows from Gong and features most of the old gang (Gilli Smyth, Daevid Allen, Pip Pyle, Didier Malherbe, Keith Missle, Steffy Sharpstrings) performing a pretty rockin' and...

"On the face of it, it's an old band's obscure latest album with only a couple of original members.
To most prog fans that's a familiar story, one that will immediately invoke a horrible mental montage of the many dusty, abandoned mid-90s CDs dwelling dormant and boring in your rack (or drawer, or pile if you prefer). But do not fear. 'Acid Motherhood' is a Gong album in every respect. It just has different people playing on it. That's all. Instead of Steve Hillage we've got Kawabata Makoto, an...

The middle disc of the Radio Gnome trilogy and filled with classics. The band is Daevid Allen-guitar/vocals/glissando guitar, Gilli Smyth-vocals, Steve Hillage- guitar, Tim Blake-synths, Didier Malherbe-saxes, Mike Howlett-bass & Pierre Moerlin-drums...

"Remastered & fully restored from the BYG master tapes. Lavish illustrated booklet reprints the original lp sleeve, inserts & lyrics."

"This is a classic...Camembert Electrique remains undated."-All Music Guide

I suppose that...

This is a totally legit release from the masters. This was the second Gong release and the first one that actually sounds like Gong-the-band soundtrack for the film "Continental Circus" by Jérôme Laperrousaz.
The band is:
Daevid Allen-guitar, vocals
Gilli Smyth-vocals
Didier Malherbe-sax, flute
Christian Tristch-bass
Pip Pyle-drums
And you can hear the beginnings of the greatness that reached full fruition on Camembert here!

The first of the Radio Gnome trilogy, which for many people stands as Daevid's crowning achievement. A great version of the band: Daevid Allen-guitar/vocals/glissando guitar, Gilli Smyth-vocals, Steve Hillage-guitar, Tim Blake-synths, Didier Malherbe...

The 2nd post-Daevid Allen release by Gong, and I think most people would agree that it is the best of them. A fantastic album of mallet-percussion driven fusion, headed by an amazing all-star cast: Mireille Bauer/Benoit Moerlin-vibes/marimba, Mino Cine...

Being a humongous fan of Gong in high school and discovering them just about the time that Daevid left and they imploded, my sorrow was great. But only a couple of years after they broke up they had the first (of what would be many, many) reunions, but this one was special as it featured the entirety of the 'classic' line up of the band that recorded Angel's Egg and You, which were keystone records of my listening at that time.
Being a twerp kid and this being before the instantaneous internet told...

No, this isn't the reunion show album, this is a compilation of 14 tracks taken from prime-period Daevid Allen-led Gong, from Camembert Electrique through Flying Teapot, Angel's Egg and You. Stupid cheap price if you want to sample this great 70s...

This is a live concert recording from 2000 at the Subterania Club. The lineup includes the band that had been touring together for quite some time: Daevid Allen, Gilli Smyth, Didier Malherbe, Theo Travis, Mike Howlett, Steffi Sharpstrings, Chris Taylor...

The follow up live album to the studio Live To Infinity, also at a very special price. Features a classic-style Daevid front & back cover illustration of teapots and pixies...ah, the good ol' days. "Live 2 Infinitea was recorded live during Gong's Euro...

"Gong At Montserrat and Other Stories is a wonderful mix of the old and the new and also the rare. The old is footage of the classic line up of Gong which featured Daevid Allen, Steve Hillage, Pierre Moerlin, Tim Blake, Mike Howlett and Gilli Smyth...

"Recorded at Nottingham University on November 25th 1975 for a long defunct radio station (we don't think it was ever broadcast) and quite a rarity, the Shamal era Gong band before Steve and Miquette's departure. In fact not counting the 1977 reunion this was their penultimate Gong gig (the last was in London in December '75). This excellent quality recording is also notable for being one of the late Jorge Pinchevsky's earliest gigs with Gong - it might even be his first, no - one can actually remember...

"Inspired by the light, love and passing of our dear friend and inspiration, Daevid Allen."-Dave Sturt

Could it happen? Should it happen?
Daevid wanted it to happen, so, yes. It should.

"Featuring the voice of Daevid Allen on two songs and guest appearances from Steve Hillage and Didier Malherbehe, Rejoice! I'm Dead! is the 2016 release (and 28th album) from the enduring legend that is Gong.
Gong has entered yet another new phase in its four-decades plus journey with Rejoice! I'

This was the album that the band released after founder Daevid Allen split. Most of the gang are still here (Mike Howlett-bass, Didier Malherbe-saxes/flutes, Pierre Moerlin-drums/percussion + Mirelle Bauer-mallet percussion & Patrice Lemoine-keyboards ...

"This two-disc compilation provides a sketchy glimpse into the bizarre world of Daevid Allen and Gong. It features rare snippets from 1960s pre-Gong recordings, radio sessions, studio outtakes, and concert recordings from the '70s, as well as assorted...

The conclusion of the Radio Gnome trilogy, & probably the band's crowning achievement along with the very different Camembert Electrique. The band remains Daevid Allen-guitar/vocals/glissand...

The first 'Gong' album is really an early Daevid & Gilli album from 1969, after they were forced to leave England, & settled in Paris. Kinda folky/psychedelic in a genuine 1969 way. You can hear the embryonic Gong sound here and a lot more as well.
Nice digipack that replicates the original gatefold sleeve, with Daevid's fun scribbles on the inside. Interesting that many of the musicians here include the free-jazzers working with BYG/Actuel at the same time, as well as future Gongster Didier....

I remember being a huge Gong fan, having discovered them just as Daevid was leaving the band, and seeing this in my local shop around Christmas, 1977 and buying it and being really really in love with this raucous, punky take on Gong. And recorded live and sounding great. And who could forget Daevid's cover imploring me not to pay more than $3.50 but "....better to rip it off if you can!" Middle class white boy I am, I paid more AND I didn't rip it off.
Planet Gong was Daevid Allen, Gilli Smyth....

"1996 CD documenting a decade (and then some) of collaborations featuring Gordon (sax, piano, keys, percussion, guitar) and Cunningham (guitars, loops and treatments, prepared piano, percussion, keyboards) with John Greaves (bass), Anton Fier (drums), and David Van Tieghem (percussion triggers). What started in 1981 as a loose experiment in location recording and 'found objects' morphed into this selection of synth drones, free jazz blasts, cut-up spoken revelations, electric instrumental minimalism...

More than 1/3rd off the original price, now that this has found a US distributor! If you didn't pick it up before, there's no excuse not to now!

Die Mulde is the most recent release by the legendary guitarist and synthesist, although it isn't...

This was originally released in 1981, & is a single piece of really trancey, hypnotic electronics with some nice, very subtle changes going on, & Manuel's (Ash Ra Tempel) guitarwork overlaid on it. I know that some folks find it too minimal, but for me, this is one of the great trance Berlin albums of all time. Personally recommended.

"180-gram LP version with embossed chessboard artwork print and printed inner sleeve."
