D. MOEBIUS-BLOTCH, CD, 1999, GERMANY





Though it dates from the late 90's, thus causing it to slip under the radar of all but truly dutiful krautrock acolytes, with Blotch, synth meister/master Dieter Moebius (Kluster/Cluster, Harmonia etc.) might just have created one of the most auspicious pieces of work of his storied career. Entirely created on Korg Prophecy and EMU Orbit synths, the eerie, stark and woozily throbbing themes here share a remarkable degree of correlation with the material that Asmus Tietchens recorded for his unfinished fifth LP for Sky Records (issued archivally on his Rattenheu 10" and soon to be posted here). Allow the sticky tendrils of these preternatural protoplasmic pulsations to invade your consciousness and you'll come away a convert as well.

Moebius could do no wrong, IMO.(the only oops being the misguided remix of "En Route" to include vocals) Got "Strange Music" with Gerd Beerbohm to post by any chance?

Thanks for setting me straight about Upcoming on Timothy's Brain, I knew you considered it a bastard offspring but I had no idea how much weight this illegitimate abortion carried!

doc kwan-Wish I could help, but Strange music was reissued last year on Captain Trip and is still readily available, as are most all of his albums that came out on Sky.
