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...

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....

"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..

An early 80's release by this keyboardist who rightly made a name for himself playing with Magma, Heldon & Weidorje! This crosses the sound of Magma & Heldon.

After In A Glass House, Giant and their record label made a concerted effort to 'break the band' in the USA, and the band toured here constantly. Signing with Capitol, they released 3 great studio albums that gave the band a slightly more rockified and accessible face, without losing a whit of the complexity of their earlier work. TPATG was their sixth album and was the first one of that trio and it is one of many extremely fine works in their catalog. It rocks like hell and incredibly cleverly too!...

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.

"For his second album, Two Solo Pieces, Jon Gibson forgoes the dense, multi-layered timbres of Visitations in favor of simple textures and tone. While Two Solo Pieces serves...

Beautiful gatefold sleeve in a limited edition of clear red vinyl.

"When I first heard this album, I was irritated by the enormous amount of vocals. I have gradually grown to like the album, as some of, the vocal sections are excellent and there is great mellotron playing on the album.
Terra In Bocca seems to be a concept album about the Italian mafia. Your enjoyment of the album is probably greatly enlarged when you can understand the lyrics. The album sounds a bit like half-acoustic...

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

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.
This live show was discovered about 20 years after the fact and came out as a bonus disc with a Goblin �best of�; it�s the only known live recording by the band and this is the first time it�s been released on vinyl.

This album has an interesting history and is sort of the band's 1st and 2nd album simultaneously.
Trauma was originally recorded and released in 1970, but the band was unhappy with the work and soon after re-worked and re-recorded the album with English lyrics and a harder 'progressive hard rock' sound with nice organ and guitar work.

Here is the original soundtrack of this much sought-after, unique, and *very* proggy 1973 soundtrack to a charming animated sci-fi film (released here in the USA as Fantastic Planet).

Written by Alain Goraguer, a film composer who really never had anything to do with 'rock' before or after this one, this features lots of wah- wah guitar, classic 70's keyboards (clavinet, Rhodes piano, string synths, etc.), flutes, vibes, bass, drums & wordless vocals. A rather wonderful period piece and a a....

"Recently unearthed Peter Gordon & David Van Tieghem collaboration from 1978, featuring vocals from special guest Kathy Acker, author of post-modern classic Blood And Guts In High School (1984). Gordon and Van Tieghem play all of the instruments and electronics, overdubbing on a 1" 8-track recorder. The result is intimate and vulnerable, yet ice cold and edgy. "Winter" is a cold-wave, proto-techno track. "Summer" is a lyrical and romantic instrumental. With Van Tieghem's drumming laying down the bedrock...

"After the broad success of “Bite My Blues”, Canadian saxophonist Peter Van Huffel’s Berlin band Gorilla Mask is back with more music; not to cover the foot imprints of his previous work but going beyond a good number of steps. You can’t say anymore that this project consists of a mix of jazz with punk and metal – the kind of sonic assault heard on “Iron Lung” has an identity of its own, inc

The long-awaited fourth release by this excellent, modern avant/progressive rock band. This is highly recommended to everyone who has been following them since their first great release, Detta Har Hänt, as well as fans of dark-hued, instrumental rock, such as Guapo, Corima, Makajodoma, etc.

"180-gram LP version with embossed chessboard artwork print and printed inner sleeve."
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.

Equipment: Korg MS-10, Korg MS-20, Korg SQ-Sequencer, Korg Vocoder, Roland SH-01, Teac stereo tape deck.

Performed and recorded live in San Francisco, CA, USA 1982. Total running time, about 22 minutes.

"From an obscure tape release discovery, this 12" highlights the work of electronic music pioneer Joel Graham, a San Francisco based artist who self-released two cassettes in 1984/85. Originally recorded and performed live on pre-MIDI analog equipment in 1982 as an outline for a live p

"When David Greenberger first embarked on what has become a life-long journey, drummer Chris Corsano was not yet five years old! In 1979, after graduating from art school in Boston, Greenberger took the job of activities director at the Duplex Nursing Home, an all-male elder care facility in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts, and began collecting the stories, poems and music reviews of its aged patients for what became his Duplex Planet project, an undertaking that would eventually encompass nearly 200 issues...

A late release from the legendary Shandar label and a minor classic of ambient, echo-y weirdness!

"Since its original release in 1977, Ragnar Grippe’s seminal debut album entitled “Sand” has been adorned with immense praise and influenced a myriad of ambient musicians and minimalist composers. Grippe’s unique approach of bonding post-modern classical composition into the tape techniques of musique concrète allowed him to be one of the leading experimental electronic musicians of the late 20th...

"Tired of the rock format and excited by the freedoms promised by electronic music, Harald Grosskopf quit Wallenstein, a conventional rock band, in the mid-'70s to turn his attention to electronica. Grosskopf thus became the first drummer to specialize...

"Harald Grosskopf was in his early twenties when LSD 'blew [his] reality away,' as he recalls. Born in Hildesheim in 1949, he had previously drummed in fairly conventional rock bands, most recently for Wallenstein. Their label-boss Rolf-Ulrich Kaiser was fond of facilitating jam sessions for musicians on his Ohr und Pilz label, often supplying his 'cosmic couriers' with LSD (unbeknown to them, on occasion). In one such session, the drug inspired something of an epiphany in Grosskopf: 'There I was playing...

The first vinyl reissue for this somewhat obscure title and a beautiful cover, originally released on EMI/Harvest in 1972.

"This band with a strange name and an unusual line-up is still less-known to many italian prog experts, yet their only album is surprisingly good and has very interesting moments. The weakest point is the singer's voice, squeaky and monotonous and with some spoken parts to connect the musical themes, but musically the band is competent and the album reveals some jazz-rock...

"You might know Rikard Sjöblom as the mutli-instrumentalist madman behind the microphone of the now-legendary Beardfish, who sang about everything from personal loss to dreams of sneaking into the backstreets of some sleazy '70s disco club. Wielding his keyboard like an 88-key progressive rock machine gun and a shoulder-slung guitar much in the same manner, Sjöblom truly was the face of the band. Beardfish came to an end in 2016, leaving room for new solo endeavors for Sjöblom.
