New today from Karl Schmidt Verlag, another instant release, as per credo, ethos, and directive:
KSV 034 Schützenausmarsch: 5. Juli, Hannover
Recorded by Karl, featuring occasional (mostly muted) commentary from your hosts TS & CF, this album features the sounds of Hannover's bizarre Schützenausmarsch, a procession of marching bands comprised of members from Lower Saxony's many gun clubs. By tradition, each club has been up all night drinking (celebrating the conclusion of Schützenfest), and while Sousa enthusiasts are likely to find fault with the parade and its participants, casual ethnographers with a taste for the outré (and just plain fugged-up) will reach a different set of conclusions.
01 Composite (31:18)
02 Version (32:20)
03 Coda (1:04)
Mixed and produced by TS for KSV, July 5, 2009.
Edition of 10.
KSV 019 Three Resurrected Drunkards - Begriffsschrift
This collection has been on the greasy, too infrequently lit back burner for months. The first of Begriffsschrift's two discs details the three weeks of rehearsals that preceded the duo's sophomore performance (March 6, 2009, at Hannover's Silke Arp Bricht); the second documents the final dress rehearsal recordings made at Silke on the afternoon of the performance.
