RUNZELSTIRN & GURGELSTOCK-BEI ABWESSENHEIT JEGLICHER GENUSSEMPFINDUNGEN, ONE-SIDED LP, 1989, SWITZERLAND









Like shit smeared berserkers armed with clown noses, bike horns and yelping chihuahuas, Switzerland's Runzelstirn & Gurgelstock (aka Rudolv Eb.Er assisted on and off by compadres Joke Lanz and Dave Philips) have haunted the margins of post-industrial extremism with their dada damaged and Otto Muehl/AA Kommune-derived antics for some 20-odd years now. Drew Daniel of Matmos penned the penultimate piece on these fringe nutters for the Wire some years back (the article can be found Here ) but one small detail not noted in Daniel's profile is the blatant streak of humor that coursed though their earlier output, a dimension thats been progressively excised from their formulations over time in favor of ramping up the jarring severity of their shock tactic postures, and while I feel an enormous sympathy for their overall aesthetic stance, the initial era of their work as demonstrated on this insane debut document remains hard to top, with hacked/spliced/vivisected fragments of inspired buffoonery, animal sounds and voiding orifices mating with corroded chunks of metal debris, the results wetly flung about Eb.Er's padded chamber in a rather Bladder Flask-like fashion, albeit cut by episodes of pregnant silence that are as integral to their "music" as is the audible portion. More of this crew's sickness will be posted soon.

Had the same Password problem as Shane. Windows did ask for a password.

However when I tried unzipping the file with 7-ZIP (which I usualy use for rar files) it extracted just fine.

Looking forward to hearing this album right now.

Thanks for a great blog.

Is the R&G LP where the groove runs from the interior out to the edge?

vdoandsound said...

fuzztunnel-Is there one that does that? I'm not aware of it, if so. Ain't this one, in any event. Oh and er...thanks for the picking up a S&G!

Grk! said...

Yeah, more R&G. Thanks tons!
