Odd, dense and moody, the somewhat claustrophobic, thudding and reverb soaked post punk arrangements of this Swiss crew take a while to fully assimilate, but there's a real potency to some of this and it continues to gather steam as it progresses, finally culminating with the forbidding closing track "Bamboo", whose baleful vibes are worthy of the Swans recordings of this era.

Thanks for posting this. FYI, the name of the artist is Dressed Up Animals, not Strizzi Rizzi.

Great band! The same guy had other bands, Löwenherz and Noblesse Oblige; there was a double LP, but unfortunately I don't have it :(...

btw: The song "horse with blinders" from Dressed Up Animals is on the double lp sampler "definitiv zürich" from 1986.

Thanx a lot!!

I own this great LP I'm sorry, but the correct name of this artist is Strizzi Rizzi. You can read on the back cover: "All songs by " and "Produced by ".
