Skeleton Crew - Learn To Talk / Country of Blinds (2CD)

Skeleton Crew - Learn To Talk / Country ...

With 10 extra tracks. A reissue of two timeless classics. On the first CD it's just Fred Frith and Tom Cora, the legendary two man crew who somehow - in real time, not with endless overdubs - managed to play all their own instruments (cello, bass, electric guitar, violin) and sing - as well as, between them, constructing the drum parts - dislocated into elements, with each of them having bits of the kit. This made for some fantastic, and normally unplayable, parts - most drummers having only one brain. No one sounded like Skeleton Crew, ever. Devious, complicated, brutally simple, always unexpected, turning on a dime, this was not just a pop band then, but a tocsin, a call to arms - and a catalogue of invention that is remains breathtaking today. On the second album, the inspired addition of Zeena Parkins (keyboards, accordion, more drums, more vocals) led to some of the best music of the decade. The recording was rawer, more urgent, the songs stand out in sharp relief; every part esse...

Lloyd Swanton - Ambon (2CD)

Lloyd Swanton - Ambon (2CD)

Solowa płyta basisty The Necks!In 1940, 27-year-old Stuart Swanton enlisted at Melbourne Town Hall, and the following year, was sent to defend Ambon in Dutch East Indies from Japanese invasion. Totally inadequate in numbers, the force was overwhelmed. Stuart spent the rest of the conflict in a Japanese prison camp with the second-highest death rate of any in WWII; the day before war ended, he died from beri-beri, caused by acute vitamin deficiency. At grave personal risk, he'd kept a coded diary that survived. Fifteen years later, his nephew Lloyd was born. Stuart had been gifted musically; Lloyd became a professional musician, now best-known as bassist with The Necks. But he also has a passionate interest in the history of the war in which his uncle fought and died, describing the Ambon expedition as "a scandalous part of our history". Now, he says, he is glad to have "got off my chest" this moving tribute. Ambon is a suite of pieces performed by an expanded version of Swanton's regul...

Biota - The Biota Box (6 CD Box)

Biota - The Biota Box (6 CD Box)

After 4 years of work on their 11th release for ReR, this extraordinary, reclusive, and highly individual audio-visual collective continues to evolve through the painstaking accumulation and disposition of a seemingly incompatible range of both exotic and familiar musical languages, instruments, techniques and studio manipulations into one of the few genuinely original bands at work today. It took a long time to refine their unique process of composition to this level of ambiguity and depth and newcomers will wonder how they strayed so far from orthodoxy and yet managed to retain a lucidity and transparency that is quite rare in contemporary music. The bullet points are that Biota is a unique project, defying genre with, like all such cult artists, a small but extremely dedicated public that, over the last 15 years has grown continuously as new listeners discover them. Founded in Colorado in the late 1970s, Biota's first recordings were released under the name of the Mnemonist Orchestr...

Cassiber - The Cassiber Box 1982 - 1992 (6 CDs / DVD / Book)

Cassiber - The Cassiber Box 1982 - 1992 ...

In 1982 Cassiber (phonetically: ‘a message smuggled out of prison’) crashed like a locomotive into the Deutsche Neue Welle. Founded by Heiner Goebbels, Alfred Harth, Christoph Anders and Chris Cutler, Cassiber managed to fuse materials and attitudes drawn from experimental rock, fringe jazz, punk, pop, plunderphonics, improvisation, close structure and musique concrete with an energetic and complex form of studio (and then concert) composition that was unique in its combination of diverse experimental approaches to form with a risky, emotional and expressive mode of execution. Through a deep connection between instrumentation, form and topicality, their musical evolution tracked and anticipated the political and technological changes of their time. Thus, in the course of their 10 years of intermittent touring and 4 records they evolved significantly through the high stakes energy of the earlier releases into their later, more complex and composed, studio works (by which time they had b...

That box does this. In addition ...
