the smashing drums-and-guitar-duo lo-lite from the dutch netherlands of holland smashing drums and guitars: thirty nonononsense headsdownboogie trashtrashtracks in sixty minutes: the first two albums from 1996 and 1999

yes i love these trashing hollandskije garabage no-fi-blues krankrachers from the neitherneverlands, my mijnher, und es eineafterdijk from the dutch rhine-delta swamps ist lo-lite loud and pawnfull painfuel. es eine bloomed rechsfall in schmerz and sundrome for all the kongdom, my frass. here wir haben und going zu fall.

in the late nineteeth of the lastlost cenutry the dutch bande lo-lite were tjeerd "lite" cannegieter on drums and erik "lo" vinkenoog on guitars and vocals. they recorded four albums full of rather short songs plus two or three handful of tracks they released on singles and compilations. and of course and as always: discogs, the user-built database of music, will provide you with some more information.

in 1999 lo-lite sent out their first two self-released albums, a promo-sheet and a very nice letter to the stuttgart all score media label and distribution. they fit perfectly, played some concerts in the stuttgart area, sold a lot of records, co-operated with other bands on all score and had at least one proper release on that label, and everybody had a great time.

so stop, look and listen!

my little volkswagner goes pling plong: curd duca and his switched-on machines transforming richard wagner to minimalistic moog music, plus a very crude selection of rarely heard interpretations and wagner-related sounds by maria callas, astrid varnay, andy mackay, the solo harmonites steelband, mikhail rudy and me=myself=am=i, plus a statement by friedelind wagner from 1943

guten tag. when the austrian composer curd duca released his switched-on wagner interpretations in 1996 i instantly hated them; the bare blare of a squeaky moog seemed to be completely wrong to my ears, and the i noticed: yes, it is completely wrong and that is what it is all about. it made me realize how much i love the musi of rich/art wagner, and how much i hate all these pretentious bastards that capture and misappropriate his music for their own purposes in bayreuth über alles; duca's interpretations in contrast are defending wagner and themselves against any abuse by the elevated upper classes by being coumpletely uneasy listening. no fun, my baby, no fun.

for your and my very own listening pleasure i decided to add some rarely heard wagner-interpretations and wagner-related sounds from evil ways beyond; i recommand to burn the whole stuff down to one cd-r and hit random/repeat.

so let us start with switched-on wagner by curd duca from 1996:

01 - air (listen directly)
02 - echo
03 - pulse
04 - reed file
05 - nervous (listen directly)
06 - organ
07 - ghost
08 - microwave
09 - bass (listen directly)
10 - bell
11 -whistle


and now for the bonustracks:

12 - the solo harmonites steelband - overture to rienzi
(recorded live at the world steelband festival "pan is beautiful v" in trinidad and/or tobago in 1988; unfortunately the linernotes for this cd are rather vague)

13 - ralf siemers - kosmische volkswagner (listen directly)
(recorded in 2013 and revisited exclusively for this collection)


14 - mikhail rudy - elegy in a flat (listen directly)
(recorded in march 2001 in paris. from the 3-cd-compilation "the other wagner")


15 - astrid varnay - mild und leise (listen directly)
