This is a engaging and utterly charming tribute to an engaging and charming and unique composer and character, performed with a modern, almost indie-rock vibe, while being true to the compositions and the composer's intent. I'm sure Moondog would have loved this and any fan of Moondog will love this.

The never-before issued or even heard album (except for 2 songs) by this legendary psychedelic ensemble, which was recorded in 1969 and shelved until now!! Color vinyl, with two inserts; Numbered edition of 1000.

"A legendary French psychedelic rock album, recorded in 1969, of which only two tracks were released at the time. Percussionist Stéphane Vilar played with pianist Jef Gilson and recorded on his 1964 album Oeil Vision. Musician Graeme Allwright introduced Vilar to Marc'O, then director...

Their sound was very informed by the This Heat esthetic, with more creative usages of drones than before and some incredible basswork.

Superb, heavy-vinyl reissue taken from the masters, in a beautiful gatefold sleeve of this English symphonic rock classic.

This is the second release by this 8 piece + guests band who get a very, very large sound that veers betweeen "The Grand Wazoo" type big band jazz/rock and a more chamber rock sound ala Five Storey Ensemble, Julverne, Aranis, etc. This gets a solid thumbs (and toes) up; highly recommended!!

"Started as the so-called 'Krautrock Guerrilla' in 2012, six years later the Berlin combo Camera are releasing their fourth full-length album, Emotional Detox. Customarily associated with the likes of NEU! and La Düsseldorf it is time to allow Camera to break free of the krautrock tradition. For fans of nominative determinism, there can be few more apposite appelations than Michael Drummer. He is the catalyst, linking everything together as he crosses the soundscape of everything captured on Camera...

Very good, modern duo playing a music that is modern but also a homage to Krautrock bands of the 70s in general and Neu! in particular. Nice stuff!

A legendary French group that never released an lp in their lifetime, although they recorded a not released album for Tapioca, and whose leader, Dominique Grimaud, later collaborated with Guigou Chenevier of Etron Fou and then founded Video-Aventures!
This recently found tape was recorded live during summer 1975. The formation of the band is different on this tape than their usual 'rock band' lineup, as during this period Camizole were a duo who played only electronic music in the same vein as Klaus...

"Camizole was the co-founder, along with Etron Fou Leloublan of the musical collective Dupon et ses Fantomes. In 1977 Camizole was composed of Jacky Dupety (tenor sax, oboe, percussion), Jean-Luc Dupety (drums, tuba, trumpet), Francoise Cruble (alto sax, guitar) and Dominque Grimaud (sax, guitar, synth)."

Grimaud later collaborated with Guigou Chenevier on many of his solo projects. These live recordings from 1977 were originally intended for release by the Tapioca/Pole label, but never issued!...

“This is unreleased 1978 recordings from both groups performing as a collaborative. (!!!!)
The ranks of Camizole included some of the most essential personalities of the French underground, notably Dominique Grimaud (Vidéo-Aventures), Chris Chanet (Etron Fou Leloublan), and Bernard Filipetti (Art & Technique). Their idea of music, if we look further than the pair Dominique Grimaud and Bernard Filipetti, and a style of music influenced by Klaus Schulze, is inspired by the liberty of free jazz. This is..

"Another excellent Italian one-shot...However, this album surely ranks in the upper echelon of the Italian heavy progressive albums, closest stylistically to perhaps Alphataurus or Semiramis. Campo Di Marte's album is filled with monstrous fuzzed-out...

Recorded in 1972, this is one of my personal favorites by the band, as there is a bit more 'groove' in the playing (and drummer Jaki was always one of the great groove drummers ever).

This bootleg is simultaneously much more and much less than it appears to be.

First the good news: The opening 9 tracks are from the Avalon Ballroon, 1966. 4 of these tracks: Tupelo, Somebody In My Home, Evil, Old Folk's Boogie all appeared on the now out of print, incredible Revenant set, Grow Fins, but the other 5 tracks have long been known to exist, but have never been seen or heard before: Down In The Bottom, Don't Start Me To Talkin', The Sun Is Shinin', St. James Infirmary, Harp....

Not just released, but SPITEFULLY released!

"A collection of Cardiacs’ earliest works recorded between the years 1977-1979. Spitefully compiled and released on the black market without the band’s knowledge by an embittered associate for personal gain. Now Archive Cardiacs gets the digipac works done on it to reflect it's incredible contents. Simply a ‘must have’ for the collector of toneless drivel."

Deluxe-o180 gram, gatefold vinyl edition in a limited edition.

For reasons I have never quite understood, and maybe they never understood either, Guns, released in 1999, was the band's last studio album.

"Guns…the perfect companion to ‘Sing To God’. Cardiacs extend the blueprint ever outwards with a 12 song colossus, bursting with brilliance, fire, and beauty. Guns… the last album of the Jon Poole-era line up, swims reedier rivers than Cardiacs have previously ventured into. Won’t...

"The Sea Nymphs is an album recorded as a side project by Tim and Sarah Smith, and William D. Drake of the band Cardiacs, originally known as Mr and Mrs Smith and Mr Drake.

“The Caretaker slips beyond recognition in the first "post awareness" stage of Everywhere At The End Of Time. The ability to recall singular memories gives way to confusions and horror. It's the beginning of an eventual process where all memories begin to become more fluid through entanglements, repetition, and rupture. Though the metaphoric device of worn-down ballroom 78s and Jack Nicholson's descent into madness in The Shining (1980), The Caretaker connotes the transitory cognitive breakdown of...

Unlike his two, previous, non-soundtrack albums, this is John's actual movie themes (all of which he wrote) and is done in the same heavy progressive style as his 2016 concert tour presented them! Fun stuff and fans of Goblin, Zombi and John's always great soundtracks will love it.

Philip Catherine is a long, long established and respected jazz guitarist from Belgium. He's had a long career and has worked in many fields, from totally straight-ahead to jazz/rock to even progressive rock (he was a member of Focus, after Jan Akkerman left!)
This was his third release and is pretty firmly in the 1975 era style of guitar-based jazz/rock & fusion vein.
This is its first-ever reissue on vinyl.
This one is known to some of us older folks, because there was a nice compilation.

“Causa Sui's Free Ride is finally back in print after being sold out for more than a decade! The original single-LP version, released in 2007 on Elektrohasch, has been selling for ridiculous prices on Discogs and eBay. Even the CDs are sought-after collectors' items, almost impossible to find, until now. Imagine a tidal wave sweeping up from the 1960s through the 1970s, then cresting in the 1990s before finally crashing on the shore of the present; that's what Free Ride sounds like.

"Cavern Of Anti-Matter return for their third studio album on their own Duophonic label. Hormone Lemonade sees the band heavily utilizing the sounds of modular synths and home built drum machines, yet still keeping the loose, improvised sound familiar to fans of their first two albums, with minimal guitar melodies and live drum kit helping to build hypnotic layers of texture.

“I got a right to say FUCK YOU!!!” is how the new album from veteran guitarist Marc Ribot’s trio Ceramic Dog starts off, with Ribot howling in anger at corruption, tyranny, life in general, and nothing in particular. If you’ve got a serious case of outrage fatigue, Ceramic Dog’s explosive cocktail of balls-to-the-wall abandon, chameleonic disregard for style constraints, political commentary, and absurdist humor is just the shot in the ass (or kick in the arm?) you might need. In fact, Ceramic Dog’s new...

"Eugene Chadbourne is one of the great guitar players of the modern era. At the time he began recording in Canada in 1975, his music was a unique syncretic formulation.

"Eugene Chadbourne is one of the great guitar players of the modern era. At the time he began recording in Canada in 1975, his music was a unique syncretic formulation. While its most obvious component was free improvisation in a style then most widely associated with English and European players, his music also contained elements of jazz, country, folk, blues, psychedelic and international sounds, referencing these threads in ways that were so diverse and intensely personalized it would take scholars...

"Bisou Records asked Eugene Chadbourne to do an album for children and he proposed an album about horror movies and monsters. Some references are obvious, like "The Thing", "Blacky Lagoony", etc., and some are about strange characters, like "Vampire Tiger Girl", and some are covers (Sam And The Shams, Shockabilly).

"Rhys Chatham returns with his first solo album since 2013, the enchanting Pythagorean Dream. Having studied under Terry Riley and La Monte Young (with whom he later went on to work), Chatham fused the overtone-drenched minimalism of John Cale and Tony Conrad with the relentless, elemental fury of the Ramones....
