On a cassette we have Schimpfluch Gruppe, a notorious group of various musicians, with a live recordings from April last year in Tokyo on one side, as recorded by Rudolf (a core member!) and Dave Phillips and on the other side a split channel by them, with Phillips in the left channel and in the right channel, recording things that were totally independent. It-¢‚Ǩ‚Ѣs interesting to play this straight after the Alice Kemp release, as it shares the similar approach to working with acoustic sound - straight in your face, although especially in the live recording this seems to be not-so-loud. In the split channel piece there is a bit more noise but here too, I must say it-¢‚Ǩ‚Ѣs not a lot. The action may seem obscure; you could hardly think what-¢‚Ǩ‚Ѣs going on. A performance perhaps, but for all we know we have two persons playing sounds from a laptop, or burning bits of wood, strongly amplified. It has for me the same captivating feel to it, but a strong love for anything sound based is quite in place here. Also the music recorded separately works wonderfully well, and I never had the idea of listening to two different things, stuck together on one tape. This is noise, and this is noise that I like. - Frans de Waard, Vital Weekly.
