DEAD BROTHERS, THE : Angst
12" LP: + FREE CD + PRINTED INNERSLEEVE
The Edge Of Time Psycho Music-Noir Folk from Switzerland Playing Serge Gainsburg And Other Dark Tracks
We are standing at the edge of the end of times. The catastrophy is imminent. La peur est partout. Fear (Angst) is Everywhere.
The Dead Brothers hid in the Vosges mountains (Saintes Marie aux Mines) to take the puls of our time.
They tuned into Serge Gainsbourg's Papillons Noirs with Rodolphe Burger and echoed traditional swiss yodels from the middle ages.
With texts penned by the late Robert Walser and underground cineaste Marcus Aurelius Littler they tell in ANGST, 13 stories of joy and misery and about the difficulty of being human in these troubled times. Hundreds of notes by violins and tubas, banjos and wurlitzers, Cisters from Emmental and swiss bagpipes, a positif from the the vosgian mountains, acid guitars doing calypso and Voodoo choirs chanting along mould together in this new masterpiece by the legendary Dead Brothers.
Who would of thought that the puzzle of european folklores that the Dead Brothers have put back together would draw the more sombre route that rock'n'roll took hidden in the alps. Mixed by engineer Excellence Bertrand Siffert (The Young Gods, Yello)
