"First time on vinyl in nearly 30 years for this classic slice of American space rock. Milwaukee's F/i have been an ongoing concern since 1981, pioneering a certain brand of experimental rock which encompasses elements of industrial and psychedelic space-rock sounds.
Originally a purely electronic outfit heavily influenced by Throbbing Gristle and prolific in the underground tape scene, they made the transition to "rock band" in the mid '80s, and for many, 1988's Space Mantra LP remains the high...

Il Fabrico Dell'Assoluto (The Absolute Factory) release their debut album which is a concept album (of course!) based on Orwell's '1984' (of course!) and totally hit the Rock Progressive Italiano brass ring right off the bat!

The group consists of
Claudio Cassio-vocals
Daniele Fuligni-Hammond organ, mini-Moog, Mellotron, piano
Daniele Sopranzi-guitar
Marco Piloni-bass
Michele Ricciardi-drums
and all of them contribute to the great success of this release. This absolut

Jad Fair with with Daniel Smith aka Danielson aka Danielson Famile along with Kramer, Gilles Rieder (Debile Menthol), Brave Combo and others.

"Jad Fair and Daniel Smith are true believers in the power of music and the forces of good, so it...

"Jad Fair and Kramer's third collaboration, and their first in almost 20 years; 12 brand new songs produced by Kramer at his Florida studio, Noise Miami. Longtime fans of Jad Fair will be stunned by how he sings on The History Of Crying. No other album in Jad's storied career features him singing complex melodies in the manner he does here. From a life in music spanning over 40 years, it is unlike anything he has ever done before, and it is a wondrous thing to behold. This LP also features guitar solos...

NOTE: New, sealed copy. Has very slightly dinged upper right corner. It's not too bad, just not perfect, so we knocked $10.00 dollars off.

"The first LP of Faithful Breath, ”Fading Beauty” from 1974, has meanwhile become a classic of symphonic rock and can definitely be recommended. In 1977/1978 they recorded their second album ”Back on my hill” - again including the mellotron - which was released only in 1980, on the Sky label. The long track on the flip side has been played in keeping...

First-ever vinyl reissue. This is a deluxe re-release from the master tape, in a hand-numbered edtion of 1000.
In the 40-page, lp-sized insert there is the usual Garden Of Delights detailed band history in German and English, a detailed discography, as well as plenty of cover and label reproductions, many poster repros, and photographs of the artists.
From 1973, this is the 1st, quite rare, private-issue & best release by this German quartet. Mostly instrumental progressive influenced by...

“The Rough Trade Singles collects The Fall’s four singles recorded for this influential label in 1980 and 1983 – How I Wrote ‘Elastic Man’ / City Hobgoblins, Totally Wired / Putta Block, The Man Whose Head Expanded / Ludd Gang and Kicker Conspiracy – none of which appeared on any of the band’s studio LPs. With 7-inches being the era’s vehicle for buzzing communiqués, The Fall would use the format for short-form, standalone works rather than as mere promotional devices for forthcoming albums....


First-ever vinyl reissue of this release, includes a 12 page book with previously unseen materials!
Much sought-after by the few who know about it, this was the only release by this Finnish symphonic rock band. Released on Hi-Hat in 1975, they were very comparable to Camel's sound from the same period of time; think Mirage and Moonmadness with maybe a touch more of a progressive jazz/rock vibe than Camel. Typical (and typically nice) of the period multi-keyboards are especially notable. Some vocals...

"Like a cosmic capsule sent from deep space, Farflung have been altering people's minds with their dive-bombing Moogs and hypnotic riffs for the last twenty years. Torchbearers of the psychedelic underground, they have been championed by the likes of Helios Creed (Chrome), Henry Rollins, and Voivod. They have collaborated with numerous musicians including Nik Turner (Hawkwind), Damo Suzuki (Can), and Dave Catching (Eagles of Death Metal, Queens of the Stone Age) to name just a few. Brothers and sisters...

First ever vinyl reissue for this utterly unknown Finnish jazz/rock band who recorded this one and only album in 1979, after which both the band and the record disappeared.

Using a line-up of two guitars, two keyboardists, bass, drums and special guest saxist/flautist Pekka Poyry. There are definitely some hints of Secret Oyster and Il Barricentro here and there.

"It's a Finnish jazz/rock band, but their sound is a bit different from the other Finnish jazz/rock bands. This album is...

"The slapping of tongues and trilling of flutes! Can it be? Faun Fables are back among us...Born of the Sun. Since 1998, Faun Fables has been the musical world of Dawn McCarthy, visited in collaboration with her partner Nils Frykdhal. In early times, their wild spirit roamed the streets and hills of the SF/ Oakland community while, pilgrim-like, wandering the world, and issuing two albums of deeply-rooted, swirlingly OTHER folk music in 1999 and 2001. With the release of Family Album in 2004, Drag City....

Faust are a rightly legendary experimental German ensemble from the early 1970's. This is almost all of their two posthumous albums which feature the unreleased "Faust V" album and their recordings before they dissolved in the 70's.

This is a beautiful reproduction of the strikingly amazing-looking first edition of the first Faust album. A clear disc inside a clear sleeve with a silkscreen, as well as a clear insert with print! Nothing like this was ever seen before Faust did it; as a English friend of a friend once said when talking about iconic avant-garde releases, "Faust was FIRST, mate!"

"Legendary German post-rock band formed in 1971 by undisputed noise pioneer Uwe Nettelbeck...

"Faust's new album Fresh Air differs in several respects from its predecessor, Just Us. The recordings were made at Jean-Hervé Péron's rehearsal studio in Schiphorst in northern Germany, hypnotic pieces with the kind of noisemaking the band is known for. For the new album, Péron and Werner "Zappi" Diermaier were looking for communication with musician friends and the audience. The tracks were recorded in changing ensembles at changing locations in the USA (during a tour in 2016). In these community....

“...a stunning collage of rehersal excerpts & studio experiments that dates back to 1971 - & still sounds 20 years ahead of its time.”- Rolling Stone

“Faust stand among the most influential creative forces to have emerged from Germany in the late ’60s and early ’70s. Along with Can, Agitation Free, Neu! and others, Faust rejected the Anglo-American norms of rock ’n’ roll to start a back-to-basics and uniquely Teutonic revolution in sound—later dubbed by the UK press with the semi-derogatory...

"Despite decades of activity and having crossed paths in various collaborations, this release presents the first-ever duo recording from two of the most highly regarded citizens of planet experimental electronic. Individually, Jim O'Rourke and Christian Fennesz have been responsible for numerous legendary works that merge the traditional avant-garde with contemporary sensibilities. On It's Hard For Me To Say I'm Sorry these giants of experimental..

"Lost LP from 1977, rebuilt from original tapes by French electronic music pioneer Bernard Fevre, who released three seminal library albums in the seventies: Suspense (1975), Cosmos 2043 (1977) and The Strange World of Bernard Fevre (1977). A fourth album called Orbit Ceremony, produced just a few months after remained in his home studio and never saw the light; sentenced to almost 40 years in the devil�s vault. By chance, while working on the reissues, Fevre found the original lost...

"Composed as the soundtrack to director John Grierson's landmark 1929 documentary film Drifters, Field Music's fifth effort, 2015's Music for Drifters, is the group's first all-instrumental album.
A silent film, Drifters documents the difficult, often treacherous lives of a group of North Sea herring fisherman. Fittingly, David and Peter Brewis, the brothers who make up Field Music, grew up in Sunderland, a city located on England's east coast in close proximity to the North Sea.
While Field...

Fifty Foot Hose released one classic experimental / psychedelic album in 1968. This release consists of demos and etc, all cut from the original tape reels. Conditionally highly recommended.

“Nobody went full-on electro-rock before Fifty Foot Hose. Before their brief-but-groundbreaking run in the late ‘60s, Bad Trips collects the demos, outtakes, and other rarities that complete the story of a band too far ahead of its time to last. From the pre-Hose tracks of boldly atonal, proto-psychedelic...

This is the first ever legit reissue of this album on vinyl; from 1968, this was the one and only album by the group who are the 3rd point on the triangle of great, early experimental/ psychedelic rock (along with Silver Apples & The United States of America). Conditionally hugely recommended.

"Cauldron was Fifty Foot Hose's first and most famous recorded work, released on Limelight Records in 1968. Founded by Cork Marcheschi, the band played continuously around the Bay area of northern...

"Finisterre, one of Fabio Zuffanti's many projects, were founded in the now distant 1994, debuting the following year with a self-titled album that immediately pushed the band at the peak of the reborn Italian prog scene of the '90s. It was the beginning of a beautiful story that lasted about ten years, marked by four wonderful releases that still don't suffer today from the inevitable passing of time. And from that beginning, 25 long years have already passed: reformed for Zuffanti's Z-Fest event in...

“Few albums define a genre as succinctly as Simon Finn’s Pass The Distance does for psychedelic folk. Not even landmark recordings by Pearls Before Swine or Skip Spence can stand up to the sheer madness of Finn’s sole LP, originally released in 1970.
After moving to London in 1967, Finn busked around town for a couple years before entering Camden’s Chalk Farm Studios, best known for producing a string of reggae hits. Pass The Distance, however, would become more than a solo-acoustic project....

One of Finland's very greatest jazz/rock bands, this is everything they ever recorded, including some very rare material (who knew they had singles?) and some completely unreleased material. Limited, numbered edition of 500 copies made!

"Five LPs in a heavy slipcase plus inserts. Black vinyl, 500 numbered copies.
Compiled with the kind help of the Tegelman brothers and featuring a full LP of material that’s previously completely unreleased, this box set contains everything Finnforest recorded.

One of Finland's very greatest jazz/rock bands, this is their 3rd and final album and this is the first time it has ever been legitimately reissued in any form.
Comparable to Finch, Bonfire, Weather Report & more, this time with a definitely more ECM sound.

"Of all the Finnforest albums, Demonnights is the Jussi Tegelman album. Finnforest’s previous records were mostly composed by his brother Pekka Tegelman but now the situation was quite the opposite: Pekka had only one composition, Jarmo.

One of Finland's very greatest jazz/rock bands, this is their 1st album and this is the first time it has ever been reissued on vinyl.
Comparable to Finch, Bonfire, Weather Report & more, with definite "Canterbury school" touches. This 1st disc is by a guitar/organ/drums trio.

"Very much a tight knit unit with three equal players, Fire! has been likened to powerful guitar led trios such as Cream and The Jimi Hendrix Experience, but with Johan Berthling's heavy, doom-laden basslines being such a typical identifier, you can't help but think of Black Sabbath's debut album (1970) when it comes to...

“Their first two albums, Exit and Enter, were presented with sizable and ambitious line-ups of 28 musicians. Ritual saw it reduced to 21 and with Arrival it's been trimmed down to a "mere" 14, with the core trio of Fire! (Mats Gustafsson, Johan Berthling, and Andreas Werliin) and the two singers Mariam Wallentin and Sofia Jernberg being the only constant members since the beginning.
Apart from this reduction, the main line-up difference is the introduction of a string quartet. This "cleanup" has...

"Fire! Orchestra follow their acclaimed 2014 album Enter with Ritual, slimming the ensemble down from 28 of northern Europe's finest jazz and improvisational musicians to a mere 21. Since the release of Enter, this energetic and dynamic mass ensemble has gone from intimate jazz settings to the main hall at the Molde International Jazz Festival and a major stage at the prestigious Roskilde Festival. As brilliant as Enter is, with Ritual they have outdone themselves and produced a beast of beauty and power...

"The source tapes for this LP were recorded in Jamaica by Jah Lloyd (Patrick Francis) as part of a series he made for Virgin Records' Front Line label.
The original tapes were not released and were offered to me by Front Line's Jumbo Vanrennen with the suggestion that I should 'remix' the music. I accepted the project, expecting lots of time in one of Virgin's studios to play with the music and the equipment, only to be presented with a mono master tape. So I...

Heavily informed by the heritage of the ancient music of the Andes, the band has learned to integrate this influence with contemporary sounds of their times, creating a rich yet minimal atmosphere.

"Physicalist is the third album from New York City synthesis trio Forma. Since their acclaimed self-titled debut in 2011, Forma have been perfecting a distinctive style of improvised kosmische and minimalism that blends swirling arpeggios, ambient soundscapes, and driving motorik beats.
Physicalist is a sprawling, double LP journey featuring new member and multi-instrumentalist John Also Bennett.
The first Forma album to include acoustic instrumentation, Physicalist owes more to American...

Excellent electronic music that is more than a little bit informed by 70s system music. A winner!

Forma's fourth album continues with the expanded sound of their Kranky debut, 2016's Physicalist, blending acoustic instrumentation with their standard analog synthesizers and sequencers. It's much more concise than that album, however, sticking to the single LP time frame of their first two releases. As ever, the trio maintain a balance between live improvisation and programmed elements, blurring...

Frame of Mind was recorded with Peter Hauke in the Dierks studio (have you ever wondered how they managed to produce such a great bunch of albums?). Frame's sound was quite refined and lyrical - melodic heavy progressive rock influenced by folk and classical music. Instrumentally, it was centered around a confident and forceful Hammond organ. This very appealing album had a...

"The first ever vinyl reissue of Free Jazz Workshop's Inter Fréquences, originally released in 1973. The Free Jazz Workshop came into being in 1967 but their first album, Inter Fréquences, only appeared in 1973. Unfortunately there is no recorded trace of the group including the first drummer Pierre Guyon before he was replaced by Christian Rollet in 1970. One of the slogans doing the rounds at the time sets the tone: "Aesthetic liberation is but a prelude to the liberation of humanity." The trajectory...
