Obscure experimental free Krautrock jazz and electronics
outfit, only ever previously issued as a demo, now available as a special
limited edition on Cosmic Egg for those that love such weird stuff! In Sonic
Sculpture I hear what could have been one of those groundbreaking albums on
the CMP label a decade or so earlier, partly Krautrock, partly avant-jazz,
and partly a genre no one has given a name for. In it elements of David
Torn's "Tripping Over God" sit alongside touches of Günter
Schickert, the crazier improv flights of 1975/76 era live Can, etc.. There
are also fragments of abstract Dada like poetry, some of it in English, some
in German, adding a Fluxus connection (Conrad Schnitzler, Albrecht./d
references can be heard too). Add to that much that is their own and unique,
and you have a heady trip that deserves to be more widely heard.
p.s. This is a different Wolfgang Seidel to the Ton Steine Scherben member
and Conrad Schnitzler cohort (aka Wolf Sequenza).
