Nurse With Wound List

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...

Now seemingly out of print in the USA, we can now offer this at 1/3rd off the original price. It was a bargain before and it's a huge bargain now!

Edgar Froese was and is the leader of Tangerine Dream. His solo albums during the 70s are different from but just as good as TD's work. This impressive box set includes six albums, some of which have never been released in their original form on CD or have been out of print for years. Included here are Aqua, Epsilon In Malaysian Pale, Ages, Stuntman....

"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."

“A duo by Osamu Kitajima and Fumio Miyashita, formed at the end of 1971 when Osamu Kitajima returned from his trip to United Kingdom where he got influenced by the exploding psychedelic rock scene that was happening at the time.
After recording his debut under moniker of 'Justin Heathcliff', he got together with Fumio Miyashita of FAR EAST FAMILY BAND and FAR OUT. Together they worked on an amazing psychedelic / progressive rock album, with a folky, yet pastoral, mellow approach.” ...

“Limited hand numbered edition of 500 in golden audiophile CD.”

“In 1969, I was commissioned to make all the music and organized noises for nineteen looped films to be run in the British Pavilion at Expo 70 in Osaka, Japan. The overall concept was to have all the films running in fixed positions so that the individual visitors would ‘mix’ their audio and visual experience by the speed and direction of their movement through and around the environment.
Since most of the ninety-second films...

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...

This was recorded with Vuh leader Florian Fricke & Daniel Fichelscher (Popol Vuh and Amon Duul II), & is much in the style of the great, mid 70's Vuh CDs.

Gila released only 2 albums in their short lifetime; their s/t 1st aka Free Electric Sound and Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee.

"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.)....

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 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...

“Gong’s 2nd album for Virgin Records has been remastered from the original Virgin masters for the very first time by the original producer, Simon Heyworth, and has been expanded with a previously unreleased concert recorded in Roanne, France on 17th August 1973 plus the single version of “Other Side Of The Sky” and 3 rare out-takes.”

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...

Good fusion album with Pierre Moerlin, Mirelle Bauer, Hansford Rowe, Benoit Moerlin + guests Mick Taylor, Allan Holdsworth, Bon Lozaga, Franois Causse & Darryl Way. [Virgin]

“Gong’s debut album for Virgin Records has been issued for the very first time from the original Virgin masters and remastered by the original producer, Simon Heyworth, and has been expanded with a previously unreleased concert recorded at The Bataclan in Paris in May 1973 plus 5 rare out-takes.”

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..

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) reunion, 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 you...

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...

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...

IT'S HERE!.

Curated by Steve Hillage and released with the full involvement of original members, legendary psychedelic surrealists Gong are the subject of a new Box Set with the release of Love From Planet Gong: The Virgin Years 1973-1975.
Released to coincide with Gong’s 50th Anniversary, the box set covers the band’s classic years in a stunning package that includes: their seminal first four Virgin studio albums plus bonus tracks; previously unreleased, multi-tracked full gigs, the...

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 ...

“Gong’s 4th album for Virgin Records from 1975 has been remastered from the original Virgin masters for the very first time by Simon Heyworth at Super Audio Mastering and expanded with a second disc containing a previously unreleased concert recorded live at the London Marquee in September 1975 plus 3 previously unreleased edits.“

The current version of Gong continues to make spacey rock music very much in line with what Gong always did, and they do it without copying Gong or even copying the copiers of..

“Gong’s 3rd album for Virgin Records has been remastered from the original Virgin master tapes for the very first time by the original producer, Simon Heyworth, and has been expanded with a live concert recorded live at Hyde Park in London in June 1974 plus an Alternate Version of “A PHP’s Advice’ and a rare version of “Where Have All The Flowers Gone?’”

The conclusion of the Radio Gnome trilogy, & probably the band's crowning achievement along with the very different Camembert Electrique. The...

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 that I was and I am, I paid more AND I didn't rip it off.
Planet Gong was Daevid Allen...

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 is a solo album by Manuel, which was recorded in 1977, but not released until 1991. It's pretty much prime period stuff of spacey guitar and electronics. “For 2019, this is a newly remastered and carefully re-edited version of the legendary 1977 studio recording for RIAS Berlin.”

“... hardly noticed by the mainstream public, some West-Berlin musicians develop a world of sound, which later eventually became labelled as "Electronic Music". These compositions of slowly evolving soundscapes...

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.

This 1998 recording, released in 2001, was the first release of John’s solo performances at a piano; just his voice and the keyboard. Lots of classics here!

“At last John, a piano and his songs. Taken from a concert at Star Pines, Tokyo and wisely minimally edited, this follows the dynamic of the concert and lives in the minutiae of its performance. Persuasive and gripping because so real - warts and struggle and all. What comes out is the essence of a performance that is engrained with character..

Limited initial pressing of 980 individually hand-numbered copies!

John Greaves solo reminds me a lot - in a way - of Peter Hammill solo. They both have a core repertoire that they nearly always perform, so you tend to get a certain number of songs you always get, as well as new or unusual selections; the setlist changes very gradually over the decades.

Having said that, they are both wonderful solo performers with a unique body of works to draw from.

This isn't necessarily...

I guess you just can't keep a great album down! This is the 3rd or 4th edition of this fantastic 1994 effort from John Greaves, which is, imo, his single finest work.
This is a great mid 90s release & probably his best solo album, with great songs & great performances, especially by guest vocalist Robert Wyatt on three stunningly beautiful tracks; maybe some of Robert's best vocal work ever! Yes, really!
In addition to Roberts vocals, you'll find vocalists S'Ange, Caroline Loeb and Kristoffer...

Warehouse find: Released in 2000, this is long out of print, but we found a few and it’s at regular price while it lasts.
John's first since "Songs", this is all new songs by John, with full band, including guitarist Francois Ovide + guests, including Patrice Meyer and Vicent Courtois. Sort of like John doing a Peter Blegvad style album.

“The Caretaker sees John Greaves coming back to the rock song format, something he had not done since the 1996 CD Songs. After a few disappointing side...

Here is JG in full-bore 'chanteur Français" mode. I like him & his voice and his style so much it's ok with me, but do bear that in mind when ordering, as he now he even out Charles' Charles Aznavour in the photo on the cover. Who would have guessed...

Easily available again for the first time in many, many years.

John Greaves was the bassist for Henry Cow during their prime. He later went onto an interesting solo career featuring more "song oriented" material, and also some fine writing...

Not quite a decade ago, there was a new set from the newly reformed / revamped Grobschnitt, released as 2008 Live. It was recorded in Bonn and Menden Germany in May 2008 and it was really good (see below).
This newer version takes that live album, adds a bonus track from 2008 and then adds a second disc from the next year, which has a complete live version of Rockpommel's Land as well as many other vintage greats. They still have that sound and fans will be really happy with this one...

This was originally released nearly 20 years ago by Eroc, and consists of previously unreleased live and studio recordings, but it has been out of print for a decade; nice to see it available again!

Many consider this, their fourth studio album,to be one of their main classics. Includes bonus studio tracks and entire second disc of bonus live performances from 1977-79!

"Grobschnitt were one of the crop of German bands that fell into the Krautrock category, mixing progressive rock influences with improvisational elements and humour to create a very compelling brand of music. The irreverence was evident in their music, but not at the cost of technical and compositional proficiency. All the...

Legit reissue from Brain / Universal. Many consider this, their fourth studio album,to be one of their main classics.

The band's fifth album, and one that a good number of people consider to be the greatest live progressive rock album ever made! This adds 25' of bonus material to the original disc and an entire second disc of further live recordings from 1977!

"The German group Grobschnitt were one of the more famous bands from the classic 70's Krautrock era. They had a long and varied history that spanned over 20 years and were quite popular in their native Germany. Their music was characterized by theatrical...
