When Richard Pinhas was recently in the USA in May, 2011, I heard great things about this band who were opening for them. I heard that they were a young, post-whatever, Magma-influenced group. This is their first album and it's really good and it's...

Edition of 200.

"Okay, I'm already aware of the predecessor album, that would be 'The Clockwork Fable', which was released in 2016. Though yet, finally, I've managed to schedule enough time, definitely required when trying to delve into their approach. Led by Luke Severn (vocals) and multi-instrumentalist Dean Marsh right from the beginning, GANDALF'S FIST saw diverse musicians participating during recent years. When it comes to the core nowadays, besides newcomer Ben Bell (keyboards), drummer Stefan Hepe and Chris...

"Top down, tunes up and cruising out of the Jersey suburbs into yr heart are Garcia Peoples and their debut LP "Cosmic Cash" on Beyond Beyond is Beyond. Originally a quartet (Tom Malach and Danny Arakaki on guitars, Cesar Arakaki on drums, Derek Spaldo on bass) but recently beefed up into a five-piece with PG Six (Tower Recordings, Wet Tuna) on keys, Garcia Peoples are just what our little psychedelic corner of the world needs right now &fun.
"Cosmic Cash" effortlessly heaves joy. The low-key vocal.

Great debut album by this Dutch singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist. This has a very full band sound, with Jacco handling almost everything except the drumming.

This is a throwback, psychedelic pop masterpiece. Think Mr Fantasy, Axis...

From the historic ProgVention 2010 event - captured in a series of releases under the name of "Live in Bloom" -, when the Genoese Garybaldi had specifically reformed after a long hiatus, there was still a 'studio evidence' missing to fulfill their comeback.
"Storie di un'altra citt�" (Stories from another city) comes sixteen years after the previous album "La ragione e il torto" and, thanks to a fresh, fluid and inspired songwriting, gives new vitality to a fundamental band of the early '70s Italian...

"In the body of work of Cologne artist Wolfgang Voigt - who, like few others, has informed, shaped and influenced the world of electronic music with countless different projects since the early 1990s - Gas stands out in particular, a saturnine sound cosmos based on heavily condensed classic sequences. Even after nearly 20 years, the sound of Gas doesn't seem to have lost any of its luster.
Rausch was created as a single composition. The intention is to listen to the album as a whole from beginning...

So, I�m looking through the tons of new release solicitations that I look through on a weekly basis, trying not to miss anything, but also with the knowledge that there�s only so much time in my day to pour over this stuff.
And I see the name Julien Gasc and it rings and bell and I rack my brain and I remember that Julien is one of the members of Aquaserge and who I think of as �their main voice�, in terms of the vocals.
So, that�s how I discovered his solo career and his second album....

This is his second solo album and while the label plays up his connection to.

Julien is one of the members of Aquaserge and who I think of as ‘their main voice’, in terms of the vocals. Consequently, anything he does sounds like Aquaserge to me (a completely great thing)
This is his third solo album and it sounds like it could be a more stripped down, poppier Aquaserge album or demo sketches for Aquaserge.

"Former Planet Mu affiliate Christopher Reeves continues his electronic journey as The Gasman, delivering his umpteenth album in 13 years. Aeriform isn't far removed from work by other Mu luminaries such as founder Mike Paradinas' strangely engaging bob-and-weave synth-antipop or a certain Richard James, truth be told.
Essentially though, Reeves mines a far more retro seam than his counterparts - titles like Syntax, Trip and Zports suggest there's an element of geek and a love of the ZX Spectrum, BBC..

"Yonatan Gat is a guitarist, producer and experimental composer based in NYC. Gat became known as one of the world's top performers as founder and guitarist of Monotonix, hailed by SPIN as "the most exciting live band in rock’n’roll,” with concerts that destroyed the border between performer and audience, and were controversial enough to get them banned from playing their home country of Israel.
Gat then relocated to New York City. He began recording and performing as a solo artist, and in 2014....

“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...

Beautiful gatefold cover.
All the pieces are in place now: Tony Banks, Phil Collins, Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett, Mike Rutherford. Includes some of their best early period work and this 1971 symphonic/progressive album is truly a classic.

Beautiful gatefold cover.
The first 'real' Genesis album, and an early (1970) classic of symphonic/progressive rock.

The second by the quartet of Collins, Hackett, Rutherford, Banks and another really good one. There would be a double live album from this album's tour and then Hackett would leave, changing the group towards a more pop sound and huge popularity, but leaving the greatness behind.

“High end 180g black vinyl in a gatefold sleeve with the original artwork including all lyrics! To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the release of their debut album, the prog rock icons are releasing their first four albums as special vinyl editions. Their second album was originally released in the summer of 1971, and was produced by Tony Visconti, like their debut album. The tracks on the album are less blues and soul inspired, and more experimental and varied; in the words of the band, more 'unique...

Gentle Giant's first album sets the pace and direction of the later, much better known albums by the band, but being a 1970 release, there's a lot of proto-progressive hard rock elements & even some bits of psychedelia in place as well.
This is probably their only album where when you listen to some tracks, you could imagine it being a different group on Vertigo! There's at leas//;.t five better places to start with the band if you don't own anything by them, but I own it in my collection and...

Unreleased late 1960s live and studio sessions by Geronimo Black, a Los Angeles band which featured members of The Mothers of Invention (Jimmy Carl Black, Bunk Gardner, Ray Collins, and Denny Walley) and main songwriter Andy Cahan, part of Dr John's band at the time. The included CD has the entire album plus four bonus tracks!

Gibson is a long time performer of avant music (who else played in the premiers of "In C", "Einstein On The Beach" & "Drumming"?) who has spent over 25 years in Philip Glass' ensemble. This reissues his 2nd album (originally released on Philip Glass' Chatham Square label in the 1970s) of minimal works for flute & pipe organ.

Goblin weren�t really a live outfit; they were a studio band and they made soundtracks and albums, but even in their popular heyday, they generally didn�t play live.
