"A Great Crash Course in Experimental/Progressive Music"

"The list is peculiar and eclectic. There are many German rock groups from the Krautrock era of psychedelic/prog/cosmic music (Agitation Free, Alcatraz, Amon Düül, Amon Düül II, Anima, Annexus Quam, Ash Ra Tempel), Finnish minimalist composers (Pekka Airaksinen), Los Angeles Free Music freaks (Airway), German conceptual artists connected to the Fluxus movement and Joseph Beuys (Albrecht/d), Swedish rockers (Älgarnas Trädgård, Arbete och Fritid, Archimedes Badkar), U.S. soundscape poets (All 7-70), U.K. art punks (Alternative TV), gloriously demented Chilean exiles (Alvaro Peña-Rojas), French avant-psych-prog-jazz weirdos (Ame Son, Arcane V, Archaïa, Gilbert Artman, Art Zoyd, Association P.C.), British experimental composers (AMM), U.S. outsider ranters (Anal Magic and Rev. Dwight Frizzell), Belgian world-music ambientalists (Aksak Maboul), ultra-progressive Italian rockers (Area), U.K. political avant-folkies (Art Bears), U.K. proggers (Arzachel) and U.S. experimental composers (Robert Ashley).
"And that's just the entries that start with the letter A."

Gustavo Turner in the LA Weekly writes about the Nurse With Wound List.
