ANTON BRUHIN-VON GOLDABFISCHER, LP, 1969, SWITZERLAND






Easily one of the top 5 rarest titles on the NWW list (one just went for over $900 on ebay several months back!), this late 60's debut outing from Swiss madman Bruhin (poles apart from his later tape cut up work) is trafficing in a species of demented fragmentary dadaist songform disembowelment of a very post-Zappa/Beefheart meets Futura Records-sounding sort, though this actually precedes anything from the Futura camp. Nevertheless, it's anarchic spirit is clearly informed by the insurrectionary attitudes post May of '68 even if Bruhin's doings were transpiring a country away. It's pretty easy to see why this was such a pivotal piece for Messr. Stapleton. Interestingly, in it's often spare and disjointed style, this isn't terribly far removed from the aesthetic thrust of the Lemke/Muller material I posted a little while back. Sick, groundbreaking craziness...what's not to love? Note: this is the first LP I've posted whose running time exceeded 100MB, so it's been divided into sides A and B.

fantastic - a record I have always wanted to hear. I will enjoy this tonight.

If I could make a request - do you have STRAYWINDS by Steiker & Chengges? Another record I've always wanted to hear but can never find.
