"Magenta's 2017 studio release - their seventh - marks a first for the band as it's the first album where the live and studio line-up are one and the same.
Featuring only three songs (including the 26 minute Trojan), We Are Legend represents a bold new step for the Progressive stalwarts.
Rob Reed says, 'It was time to try something different, musically and lyrically. I've always kept to a relatively small musical pallet with the previous albums, but I felt that we had reached a crossroads and...

Please note: all copies in stock have a 1" seam split at the top of the jacket. It's not the end of the world, but it's there so we needed to mention it.

One of the greatest, most idiosyncratic & original bands ever. This was the last of the 70's Magma discs, & while it has some great moments, is not the best place to start.

This gatefold, deluxe vinyl version is totally beautiful.

The official story is that like Kohntarkhosz Anteria, Emenhntehtt Re (note: I've left many umlats off of the title) was a major, long-form work. It was part of a trilogy along with...

Since re-emerging in the late 90s, Magma have put on countless simply great performances and 2 stunning albums. But both of those albums (Kontarkosz Anteria (K.A.) and Emenhntehtt Re (E.R.)) were both recordings of 'big pieces' written during the band's..

Vinyl single release. When it was released in 1998, it was the first new compositions from the new Magma and was very exciting. This 9' long ''single'' is really good.

This gatefold, deluxe vinyl version is totally beautiful.

One of the greatest, most idiosyncratic & original bands ever.This is rightly considered an avant/prog classic and is definitely one of Vander's greatest most totally unfathomable...

This gatefold, deluxe vinyl version is totally beautiful.

If my Kobaian doesn't fail me, the 45' Kohntarkhosz Anteria was written circa 1972/1973, but never officially recorded, although a tiny piece of it appears on Inedits, and other little...

Lovely, gatefold, double vinyl to stun you visually and musically, just as listeners were originally stunned by this when it was released exactly 40 years ago in 1975.

One of the greatest, most idiosyncratic & original bands ever. This is rightly considered a avant/prog classic and features a great lineup of the band (Christian, Stella, Klaus, Bernard Paganotti, Didier Lockwood, Benoit Widemann, Jean-Pol Aseline, Gabriel Federow). This is probably their most accessible work, as it is...

Magma's third album and still one of their defining works. Big band, big sound, big ideas, big chorus. The sound of the people of ork marching off to war. Or something.

�After four decades, there is still nothing in rock, prog or otherwise, like Magma. At least in this world.� � Rolling Stone

This nearly 25' EP contains a really great, completely newly recorded version of the piece Riah Sahiltaahk, originally...

One of the few completely new titles by the revived and reinvigorated Magma captured in the studio, Slag Tanz is one of the group's two new pieces that they regularly perform live (along with the previously released Felicite Thosz) and it's a really good one!

The band on this recording is:
Stella VANDER : chant
Isabelle FEUILLEBOIS : chant
Hervé AKNIN : chant
Benoît ALZIARY : vibraphone
James MAC GAW : guitare
Jérémie TERNOY : piano
Philippe BUSSONNET : basse..

If any single track cemented Magma's reputation with young hipsters who don't care anything about 'progressive rock', I would venture to wager it was De Futura. And this is where it is found!

One of the greatest, most idiosyncratic & original...

For 40 years, this has been listed as a 'solo' release by Magma's founder, this is, for all intents & purposes, the fourth Magma album, having been released between M.D.K. and Kohntarkhoz.

Now, for this snazzy vinyl reissue, it's been ri

This amazing document has been lying in the archives at Radio Bremen for 40 years. A decade ago, when we were licensing a lot of material from Radio Bremen, I tried to get permission from the band to release this incredible show and they said 'no'. Why they said 'yes' to someone else a decade later, I don't know, but the world is a better place because of it!
This is the entire radio broadcast, featuring the touring version of the Köhntarhosz band:...

"This is an unofficial live recording of the original Mahavishnu Orchestra's Jan. 27. 1973 performance in Buffalo, N.Y., and catches the band at its height of musicianship, verve, and popularity. The recording is remarkably good and all musicians are clearly heard. The extended "Dance of Maya" is especially fine, displaying extraordinary communication among its members.
"One Word," a fan favorite, unfortunately features a German woman's voice preceding Billy Cobham's drum solo for a few seconds. On..

This was the 2nd release by the French band Mahjun (and the 1st of two with the same lack of a title!).

�Solid orange vinyl version. Edition of 200. First time vinyl reissue of the eponymous classic debut album by Mahjun, one of the most innovative French prog underground bands, on the productive Saravah label in 1973. Their music, as you can hear on tracks such as "Les Enfants Sauvages" or "Chez Planos", is a subtle mix of spiritual jazz, pop music, folk and avant-garde reminiscent of Full Moon..

This was the 3rd release by the French band Mahjun (and the 2nd of two with the same lack of a title!).

�Solid blue vinyl version. Edition of 200. On Mahjun's second eponymous album released by Saravah in 1974, percussionist Nana Vasconcellos joined the line up on the nearly 14 minute long track "La Ville Pue" and "Fin Janvier". Their politico folk-prog sound moved to an ethnic flavored psychedelic fusion. First time vinyl reissue of this classic and influential album.�...

"Fresh off his tours supporting Mogwai and S U R V I V E, Majeure returns with a blistering EP of seemingly limitless synth textures and seemingly endless drum fills. Majeure – the solo moniker of Zombi and Contact cofounder, A.E. Paterra – has built a reputation as one of North America’s most interesting purveyors of synth-based rock music. Often overlooked is the fact that Paterra is also one of the world’s premiere prog-rock drummers, a fact that is emphatically obvious on Apex. Over the course of...

"Since he began moonlighting from his main gig as one-half of sci-fi prog powerhouse Zombi, multi-instrumentalist A.E. Paterra has become increasingly renowned as the mastermind behind Majeure. Following the assured debut epic, Timespan, his second...

As another icon of the 60s would say, "Fascinating!". And check out the folks ON this thing. So weird, so odd, so much a thing that could have only happened in the 60s...and this is a 100% legit reissue!.

"The second amazing volume (of three), compiled by Mark Cunningham after culling every known live tape of Mars, documents the band in its first fully-matured form. Recorded at CBGB and Max's in the early months of 1978, this captures the sound of Mars around the time their first single, '3E/11000 Volts,' was released by the French Rebel label (a precursor of ZE). They're still playing their early songs, and working out the material that would be on No New York (LR 102CD/LP). Two of the tracks ('Cairo'...

Highly collectable and highly regarded early progressive rock band. This was the band's first album. Nice, textured jacket!

"This album, originally released in 1970 on Transatlantic, is made up of dark, foreboding music that touches upon the...

The first album by this extremely good new Italian symphonic/progressive band. "The Wax Mask" are a five piece who use vocals, piano/mellotron/organ/moog/'clavicembalo'/VCS 3 synths (notice all analog synths?), flute, bass/acoustic guitar and drums. This just sounds 'right'; they just sound like a lost classic Italian band. Conditionally highly recommended.

Right after Henry Cow ended, Fred Frith moved to NYC. He played a little with people here and there and worked on his Gravity album, but Massacre - formed on Valentine's Day, 1980, and lasting until late summer 1981, was his first real post-Cow band.
Recorded mostly live in 1981, this pretty much helped to define the beginnings of the downtown scene, alongside such great and too much forgotten bands like The Decoding Society, Music Revelation Ensemble, Curlew, etc....

Electronics mingle with other instruments to create a music somewhere between Eno and Kraftwerk.

"Maxophone is a very important name within the vast world of Italian progressive rock. Like many other colleagues, they disbanded after only one self-titled LP, released in 1975; but thanks to that beautiful album, which at the time granted the band several live shows and even a few TV appearances, we can put Maxophone in the élite of the greatest Italian prog bands. After the recent comeback, we were still missing one piece: a new album consisting of original songs, which finally sees the light here...

"Maxophone is another band from Italy who released one album and dissapeared from the scene. Maxophone played complex progressive rock, and just like Banco or Gentle Giant, their influences ranged further than symphonic/ classical inspired rock only...

This limited edition vinyl version comes in a beautiful, triple-gatefold, hi-gloss, laminated jacket and is pressed on color vinyl; it's a huge and elaborate package, with the incredible artwork of Damon Locks and Sheila Sachs well displayed

"The cover of the gatefold sleeve promises sheer darkness and madness - A skull in a bird's nest on the back and a skull covered with candle wax on the front. The rather pastoral folky beginning seems to prove these ominous expectations wrong but the heavy progressive organ driven rock of this German outfit comes close to what the artwork suggests. "Delusion" contains twisted passages with an atmosphere of sheer insanity and heavy rocking outbursts of the classic kind that shakes souls and drags them...

'This is the third trio album Nels and I have made together, each time with a different 3rd partner. The previous two were The Gowanus Session with William Parker and Radical Empathy with Michael Wimberly. Though each session has been unique in itself (different prescribed approaches, the environment and of course the uniqueness that each individual brings), there are definitely overarching themes pollinating each album. As the instigator of each of these sessions, I've always been curious about the...

These are the earliest available recordings by Chris McGregor and some of the musicians who would later form The Blue Notes in South Africa, flee to Europe due to apartheid, eventually settle in London and totally shake up and influence the early Brit-jazz scene and eventually metamorphose into the Brotherhood Of Breath.

This is a recording September 1963 of a big band- Chris' earliest big band experience - that was assembled specifically for a jazz festival (sponsored by a beer company...

Mark McGuire was the guitarist of the great US electronic outfit Emeralds. This new, vinyl-only release is very interesting as he plays acoustic guitar on one side and electric guitar on the other side. Some of the electric stuff sounds more like Ash Ra Tempel's "Inventions For Electric Guitar" than anything else I've ever heard! Pretty great!

"Mark McGuire reminds us why he is among the most beloved guitarists of our new age. McGuire returns to VDSQ with a beautiful album of fractal...

"Another great album from Canada's legendary Paragon label, a set of super bluesy psych demo tapes from 1968. The band's album "Stink" was received not just as a great album of electric blues, but as some sort of revelation when it appeared in the second half of 1969. But lead guitarist Mike McKenna had spent time ('67-'68) in the Ugly Ducklings, and had already developed a 'local hero' tag by playing hard electric blues as a member of the legendary Luke and the Apostles. Together, he and Joe Mendelson...
