Psychedelic organ and electronics by a band whose name apparently means "total shambles", from the ever-reliable Fonal Records. Lined acetate insert provided to give the cover art some kind of lenticular effect.
One of the key acts of the NDW scene, emerging from the ashes of Mania D with a more straight-forward and bleak sparse version of post-punk. Gudrun Gut is one of the under-appreciated greats of modern music, if you ask me. Having said that, one of the 'hit' tracks which got them some airplay, "Kaltes Klares Wasser" does remind me of "Is Vic There?".
I thought it was marvellous. A revelation. I was brought up to believe that LZ ,and long haired folk in general, were the enemy.
Is there a version you prefer? I was eyeing a pristine set Zeppelin TMQ vinyl boots the other day, nice stuff.
Ha. My preferred version is the tape copy I borrowed from a friend, and never gave back. It had shorter/absent Moby Dick and Dazed, which I still find tedious. I wish it didn’t have The Rain Song either. Appalling song.
But, rock n rolll, no quarter, and stairway, are all amazing- better than the records.
