Original CD's wanted of these...
Can offer swap on any UT stock CD up to £12 in exchange for a new original CD, or £9 exchange for a m/m original CD

Esa Kotilainen - AJATUSLAPSI - apparently now on CD from Love Records
Ohm - 02 (USA 90's psych outfit) - I have the Timothy's Brain LP
Michael Stearns - ANCIENT LEAVES - I have the Continuum Montage LP
Stern-Combo Meissen - WEISSES GOLD - I have the Amiga: LP
Stomu Yamash'ta - IROHA: TEN/CHI - I have the RVC: 2LP

Excepting those items above, I'm not after actual releases unless cheap! There are very few things that I actually want/need for myself. Generally I'm researching, clutching at straws. As much of this stuff is liable to be of little or no interest to us, a recording/copy is usually adequate. We are primarily just interested in hearing the items below, maybe as a cassette or CDR copy, and/or we can barter/swap. But, please do not offer us anything that is crackly or of poor quality.

Live/demo/session recordings...
preferably excellent quality or better!

TV specials: There was a series in the 1980's (BBC 2, I think) about experimental guitarists, with programmes on: Fred Frith, Ron Geesin, Brian Godding and others. Would be nice if someone's got them archived. Not bothered about the Hans Reichel and Derek Bailey episodes! Also, there was a series about avant-gardists, including one about Trevor Wishart and his "Scrapyard Symphony" and another about Tim Souster. There were also Ligeti and Stockhausen documentaries on BBC 2 that I'd like to get again!

Italian wants...
Banco - BANCO (Manticore LP) - only from the Jap CD (Victor Entertainment Japan VICP-63232 Japan 2005) if it is from master tapes.
I have the LP, but it'd save me a clean-up job! Of course, if anyone can supply the Japanese CD at a reasonable price, I'm interested!

see also: Italian Wants and/or Need To Hear, etc.

I have, but need better copies...
preferably from a source ex+ or better please!

Agamemnon - AGAMEMNON - I have a cassette recording but it's a bit warbly and not possible to clean-up
Coto-En-Pel - HOLOCAUST (Nevada ND-5021) - from the Nevada LP original - Not the horrible Laser's Edge CD!
Osmosis - OSMOSIS (USA early 70's with Charlie Mariano) - I have a cassette recording from a g-vg RCA LP, which I tried to clean-up but gave up on. Apparently a CD issue exists (issued by a band member) who I emailed a few times with no reply. So, a copy of that would do nicely!
Pataphonie - PATAPHONIE (Pôle 003) - from the Pôle original, ex+ or better only please!
Randy Pie - RANDY PIE (Zebra) - surprised that no CD of this has appeared on Repertoire or Revisited yet! I have the UK issue issued as "Sightrseeing Tour" which is a promo not that great quality pressing, from which I tried to do a clean-up of, but...
Adrian Wagner - DISTANCES BETWEEN US (Atlantic: LP) I have an original LP which is now well-worn & crackly (badly worn sizzle on the Mellotron too), so I need a recording from a mint or ex+ LP, not from the Music Suite CD which is remixed & ruined!

If you know of any brilliant albums that aren't in our collection, wants, or other pages on this site, then we'd like to know!
You see, there are bound to be other awesome revelations like The Beat Of The Earth (whom we'd never heard of until very recently),
who turn out to be pre-Friendsound (same organist), or Japanese esoterica like Kimio Mizutani or People, and we only just recently
discovered there was a third Atila album. There's bound to be many other things we're missing.
Our basic tastes are Krautrock, experimental/cosmic/space-rock, the more unusual (less vocal) end of prog, jazz-rock (more solo driven,
rock & ethnic spiced, rather than fiddly/technical), non-genre electronic and cross-culture, 1970's Euro-rock/prog, some synth, ethnic, etc.
Some favourite bands? What do we already have? See our collection list!
What do we already know? Check the A-Z list of over 4,700 prog & experimental artists in our UT Web Encyclopedia!

Note: Some items on this page we may have previously had but forgot about. A small front cover jpg may jog my memory!

Do you have anything that we're after? Contact me by email to discuss:
