"The eponymous third and last album by the Genoese band, closes a short-lived but exciting artistic journey which leads some of the original New Trolls musicians, Nico Di Palo in particular, towards paths parallel to the ones of their previous group....


"Originally released on the Iskra label in 1975, Improvisation Sep. 1975 is a mind-bending slice of drone improv from two of Japan's post-war heavyweights; former John Cage student, Juilliard graduate, and Yoko Ono's former husband, Toshi Ichiyanagi...

This was the group's fourth (and best for 'Krautrock' fans) album, as it "contained their most experimental works."-Crack In The Cosmic Egg

"1969 formed, IHRE KINDER decided to connect songs in German lyrics with rock music. Given the lack of acceptance among record labels - rock music at that time was exclusively reserved English singing bands - they produced their first LP IHRE KINDER 1969 themselves (supported by Jonas Porst). In 1969 the band signed with the newly established Munich record....

Wolf Dieter Strunz (organ, piano), Jochen Petersen (guitars, alto/tenor saxes, flute, clarinet, vocals), Manfred Schulz (guitar, vocals), Wolfgang Kracht (bass, vocals), Lorenz Kohler (vocals), Bernd Schroder (drums, percussion).

One and done German underground rock band from early 1971, with some jazz/rock band overtones & wonderful electric saxes that will make you smile if you love David Jackson in early VDGG, especially when the Hammond organ kicks in!

It was originally released on...

"In 1980, Ilitch mastermind Thierry M�ller released his second LP, 10 Suicides, on the French imprint S.C.O.P.A. Unlike his debut Periodikmindtrouble (also available from Superior Viaduct), which featured intricately layered instrumentals, 10 Suicides explores a more art-damaged pop sensibility. While distorted guitars and atmospheric synth workouts remain a part of M�ller's signature sound, several songs credit the mysterious Ruth Ellyeri, who was not an actual person, but rather M�ller's female...

"In the mid-1970s, Parisian composer and multi-instrumentalist Thierry M�ller began operating primarily under the Ilitch moniker. Juxtaposing dark, electronic soundscapes and solo guitar improvisations, Ilitch created some of the most enduring music of the era. It comes as no surprise that Nurse With Wound included M�ller on their famed list of influential avant-garde artists.

Originally released on Oxygene Records in 1978, Ilitch's debut Periodikmindtrouble was a shot across the bow for the...

Ill Wicker are a Swedish band combining new weird Sweden with acid folk and beyond. Think Comus. Think Incredible String Band. Think Espers. Think Alec K. Redfearn and The Eyesores.
Kinda beautiful and kinda creepy at the same time! And man, this giant gatefold artwork matches that music description!

"...this remarkable six piece from Gothenburg burn with such fire and intensity that it's almost as if they stumbled upon their own dark forest magic in a hermetically sealed universe parallel to...

This is a rare as hell, Japanese-only release, originally released in 1975 on the audiophile Three Blind Mice label and this is the first time it has been reissued on vinyl since that original release!
This features piano and electric keyboards, guitar (by Kazumi Watanabe), bass, drums, and percussion. There are four tracks, and they are all over the 10 minute mark. This starts more as 'jazz', but by the second track, they are all letting their hair down and going pretty nuts in a 1975 jazz/rock way...

"Italy's Ingrannagi della Valle delivered a dazzling and brilliantly performed debut, `In Hoc Signo', back in 2013 on the Black Widow label, a thrilling shot-in-the-arm for the traditional vintage symphonic RPI sound, fuelled by endless searing violin and extravagant vocals. It was the classic sound of Italy's proud prog past meeting a youthful and exuberant future, one for lovers of bands such as Quella Vecchio Locanda. So having accomplished that, what was next for the band? How about aiming even...

"Time AS One Axis is the sophomore recording by the mighty Invisible Things! Comprised of veteran guitarist Mark Shippy (of the venerable U.S. Maple + Shorty) and drummer/noted ethnomusicologist Jim Sykes (Parts & Labor, Grooms, 77 Boadrum)...

"Filipino-American Jon Irabagon has topped both the Rising Star Alto Saxophone and the Rising Star Tenor Saxophone categories in Down Beat's critics polls and been named one of Time Out New York's 25 New York City Jazz Icons. A founding member of Mostly Other People Do The Killing, he is also an integral member of the Mary Halvorson Quintet, Dave Douglas Quintet, and Barry Altschul's 3Dom Factor.

The second release from the Austrian Digatone label who previously released the splendid, now completely sold out, Klockwerk Orange set. Now they return with a second release, also drawn from an Austrian progressive rock outfit.
