Hirrnkopter Hellikranck

(Harbinger Sound) LP $22.50 (Out-of-stock)

Early destructive outbursts by Joke Lanz (Sudden Infant) and Rudolf (Runzelstirn Und Gurgelstock). Previously released on cassette (Schimpfluch 1989), this fusion of “audio snippets, moments of eerie keyboard hypnosis, cartoon effects, amplified body sounds, animals, song, etc., into dense jump-cutting compositions,” note our friends at Volcanic Tongue, comes across “as the aural equivalent of tuning across radio frequencies, occasionally settling on sources for long seconds before exploding into life and activity. The set has some of the constant content-exploding power of classic noise ... while turning the incessant sensory / information bombardment into an eviscerated form that ... empt[ies] it of ‘meaning’ and re-birth[s] it as a form of pure sensory wuh.”
