Bosnian garage rock band from Sarajevo, closely associated with the New Primitivism cultural movement and the radio and television satire show "Top Lista Nadrealista". They were one of the most popular musical acts of the 1980s in Yugoslavia, selling hundreds of thousands of records…
Reissues come loaded with rare bonus tracks - live versions of “Collision” and the Burt Bacharach and Hal David classic, “This Guy’s In Love With You”, plus rare mixes of “Last Cup of Sorrow”, “Pristina”, and more.
TAKO are something as unusual as a Yugoslavian jazz-rock and symphonic progressive rock band. The band was put together in 1975 and the band's name means "this way". Between 1975 and their split up in 1981 they released two classical albums: "Tako" (1975) and "U Vréci Za Spavanje" (1980). This is two great reissues from the Brazilian label Rock Symphony, a label that have reissued many forgotten jewels before such as ALPHA III, FRAGIL, MALIBRAN, and new releases with HADDAD and TEMPUS FUGIT.
From mid October to late November 1982, TD toured in Europe performing 31 gigs at all in Austria, Hungary, Yugoslavia, the UK, Belgium, West and East Germany. The concert at the Dominion Theatre in London was released only a few weeks after on the record "Logos Live".
A member of the Berlin Philharmonic since 2002, Stefan Schulz is one of the world’s leading bass trombonists. This recital programme was recorded live at a concert in the Chamber Music Hall of the Berliner Philharmonie. The programme was chosen to emphasize the various facets of the bass trombone and in particular its ability to play music of a songful character. This certainly applies to Brahms’ Four Serious Songs, as well as the cantabile works by Lebedev and Šulek as well as Jan Sandström’s simple Song to Lotta, appearing as an encore. To balance the programme Schulz has included a work by Daniel Schnyder, the New York-based composer and saxophonist with whom he collaborates closely.
Fire - Could You Understand Me CD reissue of savage 1973 heavy psychedelic hard rock with brutal distorted caveman guitars all over the place. These guys were probably big fans of Led Zeppelin, Steppenwolf, Black Sabbath and Blue Cheer! Maximum (kinda rhymes with "Eruptum") fuzz and flailing drums hammered into shape by three hairy gents from Yugoslavia displaced to The Netherlands, first issued on the private Killroy label in 1973. Legend, rumor and speculation surrounds many of the recording details - were they itinerant mineworkers hoping to blow off some steam, or maybe they just couldn't find a decent recording studio in their homeland? And what twisted tale does the cover art depict, so inflammatory the LP was supposedly banned upon original release? There is no mystery, however, about the trio's raw power or surprising command of the English language, prepare to bleed!
This film attempts to capture the music played by Anthony Coleman, as if it were seared by light. A few memories of a filmed desert and a dervish-woman appear to accompany and foil this instantaneous musical moment.
A key player of the NYC Downtown scene since the late 70’s, Anthony Coleman is credited on John Zorn’s greatest albums, as well as on some Naked City projects. He also was the special guest to the first David Krakauer’s Klezmer Madness and has performed numerous times with Marc Ribot.
