Cornelius Cardew (1936-1981) A Life Unfinished
Hardback cover, 110p pages (!) Cornelius Cardew was a musician of genius for whom Life and Art were as one. He was a radical, both artistically and politically, becoming a tireless activist and uncompromising Marxist-Leninist. Passion and imagination governed all he did: his boldness and humanity continue to intrigue and inspire. John Tilbury, whose close friendship with Cardew dates from their first concert together, in January 1960, has worked for many years on this biography, and brings his s…

Situazioni del Terzo Mondo (Coloured LP)
** Edition of 100 Colored LP ** The world of Italian Library music surprises us again with an extremely evocative record. Released in 1972 with the name of Maria Teresa Luciani but really produced and composed by her brother Maestro Antonino Riccardo Luciani, Situazioni del Terzo Mondo ranks among the most important abstract soundscape records. Spontaneous tribalisms tainted with concrete sounds support the looming psychedelic vein, with different solutions from track to track.

Cinevox Tidbeats (4 LP Box)
Long coveted by diggers, samplers, and beat makers, library music and film soundtracks have, over the decades, revealed themselves to be one of the great treasure troves of 20th century music. A wonderful, often overlooked world of sound - vast in its breath and endlessly adventurous and unpredictable in the realizations of its creative ambition - there are few veins more remarkable and thrilling than those efforts produced within Italy during the 1960s, '70s, and '80s. We are thrilled to highli…

Biglietto Per L'Inferno (LP)
**2020 stock** Born in 1972 in Lecco, in northern Italy, from the ashes of Gee and Mako Sharks, Un Biglietto per l'Inferno are still regarded as one of the most influential Italian prog bands, despite a single LP release, their magnificent eponymous album from 1974.  The band had an intense live activity, that took to a very powerful sound driven by the twin keyboards of Baffo Banfi (of  Klaus Schulze fame) and Cossa and the lead guitar of Mainetti, with flute intermissions by singer Claudio Can…

Io Sono Murple (LP)
**2020 stock**Another band that deserved much more consideration than they got, Murple released a lonely beautiful album in 1974 on the German Basf label, one of very few Italian releases on this label, that didn't cared to promote the group at all and issued the record long after its recording. It's a shame, because Io sono Murple is a very regarding album, well presented in a fantasy cover and with lyric insert, and very well played by this experienced four-piece from Rome.  The album contains…

Glödhet Rytmisk Svärta (LP)
Glödhet Rytmisk Svärta is an extremely intricate and dynamic rhythmic texture, the result of years of study, evolution and practice of the musical instrument, combined with chamber music scores that make Erik Hammarström's work seem much easier than it actually is. Jazz-rock, avant-garde and classical music merge here in a sonic brew that, for attitude and originality, recalls the most courageous experiments released by the ECM label. A modern symphony, constantly vibrant and tense, which could …

Ethio Jazz
Mad funk from Ethiopia – classic work by the legendary Mulatu, one of Africa's heaviest artists of the 70s! Mulatu's been kind of a beathead secret for years – as most of his exotic grooves were never issued properly outside of Africa, and have only been the province of collectors who had the money and cash to get their hands on the work. The music's got a strange, other-worldly feel – a mix of bass-heavy dubby rhythms and spaced-out jazzy solos played on saxophone and electric piano – all comin…

Il Mio Nome è Nessuno (Lp)
"Il mio nome è Nessuno" (My name is Nobody) is an atypical western, difficult to classify as it’s placed halfway between the founders of the genre of the '60s and the comedies of the following decade. Sponsored and partly directed by Sergio Leone, it came out in 1973 and received a great success, thanks to the presence of the actors Terence Hill and Henry Fonda, in a perfect balance between a light-hearted side and the more serious one proper of the 'spaghetti western' genre. The other ele…

Il gatto a nove code (Lp)
"Il gatto a nove code" (The cat o 'nine tails), filmed in 1971, is the second film by Dario Argento, a horror thriller still distant from his horror works for which he will later become famous on an international level. The collaboration with the composer and conductor Ennio Morricone, already known for his work on Sergio Leone’s western movies, is here renewed after the success of "The Bird with the Crystal Plumage", and will continue with the third installment of the 'zoological trilogy', "Fou…

Principe di un Giorno (Lp)
LP version. "Principe di un giorno" is the first and only album by Celeste, a Ligurian group born from the ashes of Il Sistema, a band with a considerable potential that, however, never managed to release a proper LP. Recorded between 1974 and the following year, "Principe di un giorno" was only published in '76, kept in the drawer by a label that kept saying they were waiting for the right time to release it, just to put it in the stores at the wrong moment!The almost non-existent consideration…

Dazwischen
Sebastian Lexer piano +. Recorded at the Electronic Music Studios, Goldsmiths, University of London on 16th November 2008. Max/MSP programming, recording and mastering by Sebastian Lexer. Notes by Eddie Prévost, Ian Stonehouse and John Tilbuy. Design by Myah Chun. I am impressed by the varying degrees of intentionality and the spatial deployment of sounds (isolated, remote, etc.) which enrich Lexer's music. Shades of Cardew and Wolff. For example, in an ensemble the piano sound can be effectivel…

Ys (Lp)
**Green Vinyl** "Ys" was nothing less than a unique masterpiece of the golden age of Italian progressive rock. Coming from the town of Naples, Balletto di Bronzo had already published in 1970 their debut "Sirio 2222", an ideal bridge among beat, prog and hard rock, when in '71 they were joined by keyboardist Gianni Leone, who completely revolutionized the sound of the band.The following year "YS" fell like a bolt from the blue on the Italian music scene. The songwriting is always unsettling, ext…
