This is a wonderful set of music released in a miniscule quantity of 135 hand numbered copies. A couple notes: is this the same music as on this release:... Voir l'avis en entier

Buy the PSF CD instead. Presumably this was remastered like the other Squealer re-releases. Well unfortunately this seems to have reduced the speaker-shredding aspect of the original to a substantial degree, which is what we all know and love abut... Voir l'avis en entier
a posté un avis de Hartmut Geerken / Michael Ranta - The Heliopolar Egg. over 10 years ago
Just a brief comment. This is one of the best releases in the Qbico catlog. But because the musicians involved are not the most well known it doesn't get its fair due. Fans of the "Wired" LP in the Free Improvisation boxset should definitely think... Voir l'avis en entier
a posté un avis de Michael Ranta - The Great Wall / Chanta Khat. over 10 years ago
A little known gem of electro-acoustic sound manipulation and percussion recorded over the course of two decades. The title track tack 'The Great Wall' was recorded in 1984 and is a slowly building tapestry of percussion and electronics . Understated... Voir l'avis en entier
a posté un commentaire sur High Rise (2) - Durophet. over 10 years ago
The most "in the red" of High Rise's recordings and if you know the band that's saying something. They don't break any new ground here, just rip through their classics in a highly energized performance. Right up there with "Live" in my book. The... Voir l'avis en entier
a posté un commentaire sur Free Agents - £3.33. over 10 years ago
Brief review: this is a pretty stellar LP. As in the notes this features Barry Adamson, Pete Shelley, Francis Cookson and is a mix of post-punk, straight out noise, electronics, and anything that fit (or didn't). It's been impossibly rare since its... Voir l'avis en entier
a posté un commentaire sur Gruppo di Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza - Eroina. over 10 years ago
Brief review: most of songs were apparently intended to mimic the effects of various drugs and if there' s one group (while I doubt whom were heavy drug users) could present aurol impressions of the use of illicit drugs it would be Gruppo di... Voir l'avis en entier
a posté un commentaire sur Taj Mahal Travellers* - August 1974. over 10 years ago
Yes, while it's nice to have this more widely available, it's a bootleg of a release that I believe is still available on CD from P-Vine. I've now heard this and comparing it to my CD (perhaps an apples and oranges comparison I admit) the sound is... Voir l'avis en entier
a posté un commentaire sur Cecil Taylor Unit* - Akisakila - Cecil Taylor Unit In Japan. over 10 years ago
I'm running short of superlatives for Cecil Taylor. This set, recorded in front of an enthusiastic Japanese audience, is stellar. One, long titanic improvisation spread out over 2 LPS. Everyone is in top form, especially Andrew Cyrille who is the... Voir l'avis en entier
a posté un avis de Cecil Taylor - Nefertiti, The Beautiful One Has Come. over 10 years ago
With the addition of the bonus tracks this upgraded issue of this seminal Cecil Taylor LP can be fairly judged as definitive. The understated packaging leaves the focus exactly where it should be--on the music. The LPs (on opaque vinyl) themselves... Voir l'avis en entier
a posté un avis de Cecil Taylor & Tony Oxley - Ailanthus / Altissima: Bilateral Dimensions Of 2 Root Songs. over 11 years ago
Re-edited to remove text already in the notes (one of my first submissions on discigs). A brief review instead: this a lovely produced set of two masters of free improvisation. The price is quite dear and for many that means they essentially will... Voir l'avis en entier
