DRAENGENDE HEBELKRAFT-ENTNAHMT X, TAPE, 1989, SWITZERLAND




A well conceived round of tape manglings and undulating shudderings with absurdist undercurrents from this obscure Swiss crew associated with the art terrorists from Runzelstirn & Gurgelstock and released on their Schimpfluch imprint, also responsible for issuing the few other extant bits from this unit, which appear on the Stuhlgangblockade, Zerstuckelte Denkkurbeln and Psychic Rally No. 3 compilations. Accordions are abused, vocals stutter in time with metallic scythings, pitch shifted electronic loops evoke wounded animals and swarms of metal insects communicate in morse code with pans of sizzling fat over the course of these two side long investigations, though with the events here unfolding in a notably more integrated sonic fashion than the shock tactic structural (il)logic of most of the other artists associated with this imprint.

Hello, VDOANDSOUND :

Well, I know this can be a pain in the ass but after several attempts on the net I have to ask you this :
is there any chance of getting a download link to this french LP :

Ich Bin - Obéis ! (Poutre Apparente)

Anyway, thanks for the trouble.

hey-- it's not on your wantlist, but i have a square 7" flexidisc that accompanied the cravats LP the colossal tunes out. it is DCL laboratory series number 1 (DCL standing for dada-cravat laboratories). instead of the strange punk sound of the cravats, this is more sound collage/texture oriented, and would fit in with all the other stuff here just fine. I can't find the about me stuff or your profile or whatever, so if you want it, just email me (i think my name should link to it). believe it is only one sided, but is kind of neat, just because it is so different from all the other cravats stuff, and i think it is pretty rare, as i have never seen another one, or heard about it from anyone.

love the blog,
eoin.
