HOLGER HILLER-OBEN IM ECK, LP, 1986, GERMANY





On his second solo effort here, one time Palais Schaumburg member and overarching Neue Deutsche Welle figurehead Hiller (two of whose singles have been featured elsewhere on MS) has excised much of the rock element that underpinned his first full length outing Ein Bündel Fäulnis in der Grube. What we have here in lieu of that here is a queer mix of quasi-symphonic and sampler centric bombast and art pop fracture, portioned out with lots of gaps of space in the mix and mixed up with bouts of mischievous chamber R.I.O. of the ZNR, Comelade or Look De Bouk school, occasionally even migrating into Danny Elfman Pee Wee's Big Adventure territory.

Get it via Rapidshare Here

Note: as is the case with four of my five other posts today, both my usual megaupload and my fall-back Sharebee were dysfunctional when attempting to up the secondary links for these particular albums, so in this *one instance* I've opted to use Mediafire instead. Don't mistake this as a continued willingness to do so, as I've been burned by their file deletions in the past...
