Ardecore - San Cadoco (2010)

Here is another present from the mysterious "O". Ardecore is an Italian group who would fall under the category of "tradional folk" of their mother countries past. But this release has a bit of a rock edge which almost made me leave it off this blog. My thought is, if you can hear it on the radio... why bother with it here.

But it has a pleasant vibe to it. Perhaps even a "world" feel to the release....

Let me know what you think.

Track Listing CD1;
1 San Cadoco
2 Meravigliosamente
3 Non Si Può
4 Santa Gilda
5 Tentazione
6 Il Nuovo Giorno
7 Per Quella Lei Ci Muore

9 Oggi È Domenica
10 SNessuno Sa Più Bene

Track Listing CD2;

The Nurse With Wound List:: 1

As the NWW List collections go... this one is epic. Obviously there is stuff here a lot of you (and me) know... but check out some of the surprises...

David Cunningham - Error System.... Is an absolutle bizarre idea put to music. Check this out (from the liner notes);
Error System: The players play a repeated phrase. As soon as one player makes a mistake that mistake is made the basis of his repetition unless it is modified by a further mistake. Thus each player proceeds at his own rate to change the sound in an uncontrollable manner. On no account should "mistakes" be made deliberately to introduce a change into a performance. In short...sustain your errors. The water piece and the guitar piece are analogous to this process. However the process is automatic here, an inherent quality to the machinery used. The numerical sequence used in Ecuador and Bolivia is: 11221111223332112222331112332233331122232 repeated three times. The last time, an extra 11 is tagged onto the end. Each number refers to a bar, repetitions of a specific number are uniform. Notated according to the Ecuador system, Venezuela is 11223344556677 etc. for each player except the musician supplying the constant pulse.
Great idea though!

Also, some great Jazz. Weird eh?

Don't forget... I have no idea if these are even the tracks that influenced the "List". None-the-less, they are artist featured on the list.

Track Listing;
Vom Himmel Hoch - Kraftwerk

from 1970 LP Kraftwerk
Selection 5 - Boyd Rice

Lovac - Apes Of A Cold God (2010)

Here is a fun one from our friends at Soleilmoon Recordings. This one was also sent by "O". Lovac is a somewhat new band... well, actually they have one release on Douglas P. label under the name "Down In June".

"Apes Of A Cold God" is actually a quite good record. Combining this music with text fragments from Karl Marx, Antonin Artaud and Percy Bysshe Shelley your sure to find something you will agree with! No? Get over yourself.

Hey I got an idea, why not say "thank you" to "O" for sharing with us?!?!?!?

Track Listing;
1 Crkveno Zvono I
2 Murder
3 March Of Pride
4 Fiend
5 Filth Of A Paradise
6 Welcome
7 Apes Of A Cold God

Kajkyt - Krst (2009)

How about a short break in the action between the Nurse With Wound List recordings. Yesterday in my email I got a gift from the incredibly handsome, elusive, and quite sexy "O". So... I thought I would start it off with a release by Slobodan Kajkut who is recording under the name of Kajkyt. I really don't know much about Slobodan but upon listening to the release I found it quite interesting. Here is the "Kajkyt" press release;
We´re glad to announce the first release of the new project "Kajkyt" of composer / musician Slobodan Kajkut for 19th of December 2009.

„Krst“ is a 75 minutes long dark electronic piece, combining minimal beats and atmospheric drones with brutal noise, accompanied by Byzantine influenced voice and choir.

The piece was created between 2005 and 2009 and has been mixed by Oktopus, mastermind of dark hip hop pioneers Dälek, at their Deadverse Studios.

The release comes as double LP box deluxe in a very limited edition.
Interestingly enough, I could only find bad reviews for this release. But since I enjoyed it, I guess they were all WRONG!!!!!!

The Nurse With Wound List:: 5

Again... some stuff you most certainly recognize... and some REALLY weird shit. Have patience... "Sheer Madness" is exactly that. And, another wonderful highlight is Théâtre du Chêne Noir who I discovered is still active today (check it HERE). Also... a quick search of the net found the very quirky Family Fodder release HERE.

A number of these acts are exactly that... an act, or a theatre. Of course their is some cool Krautrock, Acid Jazz, and a little bit of Punk.

Don't forget... I have no idea if these are even the tracks that influenced the "List". None-the-less, they are artist featured on the list.

At least two people asked for the rest of the series. So I reached in to the stereo cabinet (yes, I have a very 1980's looking stereo cabinet), reached around, and the first one I found was Number 2!

Number 2 has a couple of familar tracks (Throbbing Gristle and Posion Girls) as well as the bizarre jazz and noise artists from the 1970's.

Are you still entertained?

Don't forget my caveat; I have no idea if these are even the tracks that influenced the "List". None-the-less, they are artist featured on the list.

The Nurse With Wound List: 6

The Nurse With Wound List. Are you familiar with it? Originally this list was featured on the first Nurse With Wound LP, "Chance Meeting on a Dissecting Table of a Sewing Machine and an Umbrella". Since it's publishing the list has grown as a guide for would be collectors and purveyors ov the odd. Here is a wonderful write up on the list.;
To collectors of unusual music this list is legendary. It contains the found gems of obsessive collector [4] and musician [2] Steven Stapleton along with early NWW member John Fothergill. The List was originally included with Nurse With Wound's first two albums but was later expaned by the Freeman Brothers in their "The Audion Guide to Nurse With Wound" [5,6].

In addition to being a list of some of the most 'out music' artists around, it also is a list of the major influences of Nurse With Wound (as well as the Unitied Dairies label). The emphasis of this website is on the influence aspect. External links are provided (for the labels as well as the artists) for those wishing to explore them in a wider context.

Because the list only gives the artist names and not specific albums there is some debate over what the list refers to. Collector who blindly buy any album by the artists will end up with more than a few mediocre releases. My annotated list seeks to give a shortlist of recordings by each artists that most influenced their inclusion on the NWW list.
A couple of years back I decided to investigate further. Some of the artist I was familiar with, others were news to me. I assembled a series of CDs for listening to during my commute. Not sure how many I ended up with. This is the 6th in the series.

The musick here-within is an eclectic group. You will find the complex hard progressive rock of Food Brain, the amazing pioneers of Krautrock Gila, early electronica and tape delay with Terry Riley, the free jazz improvisation of Iskra 1903, the more familar Kautrock of Neu!, the space rock of Arzachel, the psychedelic and expiermental Brave New World, the weird Robert Wyatt (and I mean that as a positive way), and just the plain out their sensibilities ov the obscure Sally Smmit And Her Musicians.

Keep in mind, I have no idea if these are even the tracks that influenced the "List". None-the-less, they are artist featured on the list. If there is interest, I will post other mixes.... Enjoy... It's a trippy, jazzy, melodic, nosiey journey.

For Kings And Queens - Marchantiophyta (2010)

Here is an ambient drone thing that won't bore your socks off. For King And Queens is an outfit out of Germany. Their site credits the band as a duo consisting of the ambiguous Mr. J and Mrs. B. Here is what they had to say about the release Marchantiophyta;
The Marchantiophyta is a psychedelic travel. It's a journey to our inner state of mind. The combinations of experimental and conventional sounds create massive clouds of sinister atmospheres. The layered textures increase the tensions of exotic darkness. The sinister timbres are seductive and jarring. The music deeply penetrates into our subconsciousness and can reveal internal pictures. As sound springs served admissions from the rain forest, a coffeemaker, a glas of water, little tubes, contactmics, guitar, various synthesizers and some effects.

Salakapakka Sound System - Eyewitness Protection Program (2011)

God I love Salakapakka Sound System! Here is their/his latest endeavor. It is featured on the label "SPETTRO". Never heard of the label, but a look over their site looks like it will be worth quite a few trips back!


Here is write up on the release from SPETTRO.
"Eyewitness protection program is a compilation of tracks made in 2010 which did not fit or did not find place in other releases of that year. They represent a variety of Salakapakka Sound System sound: from dark & dirty ambient to guitar improvisation and pure noise with elements of thrash metal and even hardcore techno. This time Salakapakka Sound System used digital and analog synths, found sounds, samples, guitar & found objects."
So, download it... say thank you (you won't), support SPETTRO (you should).

P.S. Bingo - Beware (Remastered) (1986)

Originally released in 1986 as a split 90 minute cassete with If, Bwana and P.S. Bingo. Remastered and bestowed upon us by the saintly Peter. The original release was on Sound Of Pig (SOP24). This remastered verison clocks in at a little over 45 minutes of cool noise! Here is what Peter said:
The music began as a long jam in Tucson by me and a young gutter punk named John Langford (not the well-known Jon Langford of Mekons/Three Johns fame, obviously) using toy instruments and percussion recorded on an ancient reel-to-reel deck. Later, in San Diego, assisted by sometime PS Bingo member Joel Nowak, I slowed down the tape and layered loops and other recordings on top, as well as adding about 10 minutes of new material for the Sound of Pig Music release. The master I sent Al Margolis for the release was mastered at a really low level for some reason... most likely due to my general technical ineptness. Recently, I digitized the master and manipulated the EQ for a much fuller, louder sound. It's probably about 30 minutes too long, but is not without its charms.
The download comes with revamped cover art and credits. Don't forget to say thanks!
