Nurse With Wound List

The good news: This live recording of Grobschnitt with an orchestra is really excellent.
The bad news: It's only 14' long!

The fifth in a series tracing the evolution of this very acclaimed, large-scale piece by this German symphonic band, released by their drummer Eroc. This has material from 1975 and 1983. [Wolkenreise]

Nice, quite comprehensive live overview, with recordings from 1973-1981, all remastered by Eroc and in a great double digi-pack. "The German group Grobschnitt were one of the more famous bands from the classic 70's Krautrock era. They had a long and va...

This is the very 1st time that Group 1850's superb 2nd album has been reissued from the master tapes onto CD. This is a 24-bit remastering of this fine, psychedelic release and it even includes their excellent (but not quite as excellent) first album...

This marks the first-ever reissue of the second of two albums that Guru Guru made for Atlantic, after recording four albums for Brain and losing original guitarist Ax Genrich. Ax was an amazing guitarist and losing him changed the sound greatly, but th...

An excellent sounding period recording from their 10/25/70 performance at the Essen Pop & Blues Festival. This is just after their great 1st album UFO was released, and captures them at an early, heady peak; imagine the furthest out that a power trio c...

Even crazier second release of monster power trio, early 1970's style hard rock/progressive/psychedelic madness by Ax Genrich-guitar/vocals, Uli Trepte-bass/vocals & Mani Neumeier-drums/vocals. Like your favorite Cream record with it's brain destroyed...

“When Guru Guru was founded in 1968 in the year of the student revolt, everyone would have reaped a weary smile that would have predicted that Guru Guru would still exist after 50 years, or have played a decisive role in shaping the music scene during that time.
Today, Guru Guru is one of the longest-serving bands on the planet, along with the Rolling Stones, and Mani Neumeier and his gurus stand for rock music that has survived all trends and fashions and that still goes beyond borders today. That...

"One of the lesser known Guru Guru albums originally released in `93 and re-issued in `07 on revisited records with remastering by none other than ex-Grobschnitt drummer EROC.
Well you can`t go wrong with the technical improvements as well as the one thing which is guaranteed with every Guru Guru album from Mani Nuemeier & Co: A wacked out musical experience with diversity and relentless energy. Divided roughly between vocal tracks and instrumentals, " Shake Well " contains a heavy dose of high...

Monster power trio 1970-style hard rock/progressive/psychedelic madness by Ax Genrich-guitar/vocals, Uli Trepte-bass/vocals & Mani Neumeier-drums/vocals. Their first album. Like your favorite Cream record with it's brain destroyed by LSD. Highly recommended!

Really good (not professional, but genuinely very good) quality live album recorded November 4, 1972. This is recorded just after the band's peak, as Ulli Trepte has left and Bruno Schaab (a fine player) is his replacement here, but the repertoire is still all taken from the 1st 3 albums, with really long versions of Oxymoron, Baby Cake Walk and Ooga Booga. Ax Genrich and Mani Neumeier play great as always. Not as essential as they once were, as this feels a little tentative, but it's still a great...

"Guru Guru played in the Wartburg, a Wiesbaden hall, on September 17th, 1973. It was one of the gigs recorded by Xhol (Caravan) acquaintance Muck Krieger. His recording equipment was then state-of-the-art: an Uher tape recorder CR 124 and two Revox...

This is Uli Trepte and Mani Neumeier, fresh from their years backing Irene Schweizer, making the transition from free jazz to free rock and finding themselves before they dropped the Groove Band part, settled on a guitarist and became Guru Guru.
This is historically fascinating, but please note it is of bootleg sound quality.

Experimental music pioneer Keiji Haino, one of the most mysterious and influential figures to emerge from the Japanese psychedelic underground, teams up with Charles Hayward, British drummer and founding member of This Heat and Camberwell Now, on a new live album.

The Hampton Grease band are legends of weirdo American music and performed a wild, energetic and tight music featuring wild dual guitar work and a solid rhythm section plus a wild-card vocalist. Comparable in some ways to the Magic Band, the Grateful Dead and the Allman Brothers, but with a wild/freak-out streak, basically they

"Hardy Fox used to be composer for The Residents for over four decades. He later released solo albums under the name Charles Bobuck before finally switching to his real name in 2017.
After Heart, Nachtzug is his second solo album. In the beginning, this release was intended to become a TOOK release - simply releasing Fox's sketches for The Residents' Ghost Of Hope album. But this idea soon turned out to be not challenging enough, so Hardy started using his original sketches as the basis of an...

“Hardy Fox used to be composer for The Residents. He left the group when he didn't feel fit enough for touring. Since then, he has released many albums under the name Charles Bobuck, switching to his real name Hardy Fox when his albums became more personal. The first, self-titled and also known under the name Heart, is a study of the young Hardy Fox, an album about Love. The second, Nachtzug is about his last days touring with The Residents.
After a break from recording, Hardy Fox is now back with...

Grumpy editor's note: at this point, I don't think either name listed here is a real name....

"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. In addition to his work with that band, he has recorded as a solo artist under various names including Charles..

So, Harmonia put out this sexy, vinyl-only box set of all their work and included the box included a vinyl release of never-before heard studio material.
But until now, you had to either get it in the vinyl box or you could buy it as a cassette (as CASSETTE? I know it was recorded in 1975, but did they have sell it like it was 1975?).
FINALLY you can buy it on CD and it’s really great!
This album consists of two unearthed live recordings, capturing the Deluxe-era incarnation of the group...

“Charles Hayward is an English drummer and was a founding member of the experimental rock groups This Heat and Camberwell Now. He also played with Mal Dean's Amazing Band, Dolphin Logic, and gigged and recorded with Phil Manzanera in the group Quiet Sun project as well as a short stint with Gong. He was a session musician on The Raincoats' second album, Odyshape, and on one occasion played drums for the anarchist punk band Crass. Since the late 1980s he has concentrated on solo projects and....

“Crossfade Estate was a special, distinct project. It was made in November 2005. Recorded in 10 hours. Edited, mixed and collaged over 18 months. It was a development of Charles Hayward's long term relationship with The Albany in Deptford, London. They asked him to push their recently installed digital recording suite and see what he could make.
The approach was a step further from the series Accidents+Emergencies which Hayward had curated in the late 1990's. It was a pulling together of different...

Charles Hayward is, of course, best known for his drumming and vocalizing feats with This Heat, Camberwell Now and Quiet Sun, but in addition to doing some improvising work, he has released a number of solo albums contsructed out of his excellent drumming, distinctive voice and single drones made from keyboards, melodica, etc. I saw him perform at RIO in 2009 and it was a real treat to finally see the great man behind the kit and in full voice. This is his first in quite some time and is a good one...

Great to see this relic from the very early 70s reappear ("...all selections were written and composed by Dashiell Hedayat on Autumn 69...and finally recorded at Strawberry Studio on May 1971. Warning: This record must be played as loud as possible, must be heard as stoned as impossible and thank you everybody."). Originally released 1971 on the rare and collectable Shandar label, this was the work of French writer Jack-Alain Leger, who released a 1969, very collectable album under the name Melmoth....

Packaged in a beautiful mini-lp sleeve! "It's so cute", Richard Branson was heard to squeal! Expanded with bonus tracks taken from the Henry Cow box.

The last of the Henry Cow albums on Virgin, this includes their amazing final BBC session; 25' of Henry Cow perfection, a small taste of the famous shows that they performed with Robert Wyatt and a lot of purely free improvisation or prepared free improvisation, which is what they were doing live at this time.

This was Cow's final studio album for Virgin, & is considered by many folks to be their greatest achievement, with Dagmar fully integrated into the band. With the original (greatly superior) mixes which have been unavailable for years & improved sound.

This features very strong playing & compositions coupled with a ''lightness'' of sound unlike any of their other albums; the closest Cow ever got to sounding like Hatfield & The North!

For ONE C-note, you get everything. Studio, live, outtakes, etc etc etc. Most of you already have this, but if you don’t already have this, it’s a fantastic deal.

Also, just thought I would mention that once upon a time, I got a ride back to London from Guilford Civic Hall, after the show, with the band in the van on the cover on the box!

Their 2nd album featured the addition of Lindsay Cooper's bassoon/oboe, giving them sort of a proto-Univers Zero sound (Cow were first). One side of composed music and one side of (mostly) improvised music with studio work. There was a period in my life when this was one of my most listened to albums!

“While modern recording technology & online distribution capability are making it easier to appreciate the full extent of today's artists' work, the same cannot be said about relatively short-lived groups from the 1970s. “Especially true of groups that, despite being remarkably influential, remain cult favorites with a relatively small but intensely dedicated fan base.

This is a great run-through of basically the set I saw them do about 9 months later, in slightly shortened form and all the late period greats are here, performed live without an audience: Living In The Heart Of The Beast, Erk Gah, Beautiful As The Moon, No More Songs, etc.

”This opens with a series of well-recorded tracks from an unknown source, largely culled from Unrest but demonstrating Cow's penchant for mixing things up in performance so that, while all the signposts of Frith's "Ruins" are there, the complexion is changed by inserting "Half Asleep" smack dab in the middle. Frith doesn't reproduce the razor's edge tone of his solo on the...

“Lindsay Cooper had joined Henry Cow for their Unrest album, replacing founding member/woodwind multi-instrumentalist Geoff Leigh. Trondheim is a recording of the band's May 1976 concert in Trondheim Norway, when Henry Cow was a quartet, immediately after Greaves departure from the band, and without singer Dagmar Krauss, who was too ill to perform at the time...

This is high quality live Swedish radio recordings from Goteborg (1975 - with John Greaves) and Stockholm (1977 - with Georgie Born). The sound is great here; Bob Drake worked from the original 8 track and stereo 2 track masters and you can finally hear Tim's follow-up masterpiece to "Living in the Heart of the Beast", entitled "Erk Gah". There's also some nice improvisations and other tunes and Fred's never otherwise released "The March", which is a really great one as well. Highly recommended...

"Joan" & "On Suicide", traditionally associated with Art Bears & Hopes and Fears (1978), feature here, showing that they were Henry Cow songs long before Art Bears existed "On Suicide" is longer here & ends with a cello solo by Georgie Born.

Material from the very end of Henry Cow's existence, demonstrating where the group may've gone had it continued.
Mostly live with some studio outtakes, there’s still lots of surprises here (covering Thelonious Monk?)

“Assembled over 15 years, this collection gives for the first time some idea of the breadth and depth of Henry Cow’s work. Always very much a live band.

The final Henry Cow album, & along with their first, this is my favorite of their many great works. This stuff is the ultimate in humanly impossible to play works, but there they are playing it! One side of Tim Hodgkinson's composerly insanity (no wonder he gave up composed music for the improvised life! How does one top this?) and one side of Lindsay Cooper's fine works. Fred Frith provides guitar and bass & Chris Cutler turns in one of his greatest drumming performances. You know that the voting is...

Note: These copies are the original issue of this CD on the ESD label at a special price. Very few available.
