7 ELCHE-BROHR (HIRSCHGEWEIH), TAPE, 1984 (RECORDED: 1977), GERMANY, HNAS-RELATED



The spasmodic caveman sludge pummel plus burnt out electronics formula that this German mob (somehow related to HNAS, any info appreciated...) worked out way back in 1977 keenly anticipates the whole improvised noise rock sub-trajectory of the "new weird America" phenomenon that mysteriously seems to work so many hipsters into a lather. You could easily extrapolate from here to the High Rise/Mainliner/Music Transonic axis as well. Yes, this is a continuous in-the-red earboxing noise rock marathon, but it's also possessed of a certain delirious "x" factor, particularly toward the latter half, where the Ravenstine-ian synth splatter begins to suck this whole gurning churning morass into a toxic tidal pool not dissimilar to the one Australia's contemporaneous Slugfuckers were wading around in.

Is there one or two tracks for the 7 Elche? It seems the zip file only contains the second song.

Anonymous-This was burned for me by an old contact of mine. My understanding is that this IS in fact the tape in it's entirety. I believe that it's a C30 tape and the reason it's indexed as one track instead of two is that the tape switched sides while he was recording and he just let it continue recording. I should have mentioned something about that in my post...

i believe that this release on Dom, and most, if not all others, are all different incarnations of Christoph Heemann & Achim Khan and friends. Dom is a pretty nice document and example of the early 80's experimental tape label culture. One run by some very creative minds...

Grk! said...

What a great cacophony. Thank you!
