Also, they're not ordering any more production runs, so whatever is out there in print are the last of their kind. And they refuse to license their titles for any of the streaming services, so...
I picked up:
Robert Wyatt '68
While in NYC as a guest of Jimi Hendrix, Wyatt was granted off-hours access to a couple of the recording studios being used by Hendrix, and the four tracks on this album are what came of them. One of them is an early version of side 1 of the second Soft Machine album. One is an early version of "Signed Curtain," which was on a Matching Mole album. One is unique from the other songs he recorded, and one was the demo for Moon in June that Cuneiform had already released on the Backwards archival Soft Machine album, but this one is in better sound quality. Hendrix plays bass on one of the tracks. It's a must-have for a Wyatt or early Soft Machine fan, IMO.
Happy Family - Minimal Gods
Happy Family is a Japanese band influenced somewhat by Magma. Minimal Gods is their 2014 "comeback" album, after a fairly long hiatus. It's awesome.
Hugh Hopper & Alan Gowen - Two Rainbows Daily
Most of these are atmospheric June, 1980 duets. A few songs from September, 1980 include a drummer. A really good addition to the collection for a fan of Hopper and/or Gowen.
Machine and the Synergetic Nuts - Leap Second Neutral
Never heard of these guys before perusing the Cuneiform catalog - just got it from based on a few internet recs. A Japanese band with an affinity for fusion-era Zappa, Soft Machine, and other like-minded bands. Really good, though there is some obvious debt to the influences.
Cheer Accident - No Ifs Ands or Dogs
Cheer Accident - Putting Off Death
A great quirky band. These most recent albums find the band mostly in song-based mode, unlike a good deal of their '90s and early 2000s stuff. I think a lot of people on this board would like their later stuff.
NDIO - Airback
Jazz, with Hugh Hopper on bass. One of his better collaborations.
Steve Moore - Light Echoes
Analog keyboard soundscapes, a la Berlin circa 1976, but this also has its own character. I was surprised by how much I liked it.
Richard Pinhas - Rhizosphere / Live, Paris 1982
Pinhas is the electronic music pioneer who never gets enough credit for the trails he blazed. The Heldon leader made a career out of electronic and guitar soundscapes since the late '70s and Rhizosphere was the first. This and the follow-up, Chronolyze, are albums I'd highly recommend to anybody interested in this kind of thing.
Henry Kaiser + Wadada Leo Smith - Yo Miles! Sky Garden
Re-interpretations of electric Miles Davis material. Excellent.
