Ich habe Bock





"Bock haben" - "to be up for something" / "to have appetite"
I am up for Elektronik. People label this kind of electronic music as Berlin School.
Klaus Schulze in fact produced this 1980 album and also had an immense impact on Mr. Bock. Nevertheless Bock's doing his own thing. Epic electronics! The title track builds up slow then smashes wagneriesque into your ears with the help of Brad Howell (drummer of Supermax & Chilly). Herk Hobb (???) plays the drums on the 4 remaining tracks on the flipside. Great job.

cheers,
Basso

Sorry for the slooooow reply bro, I've been away for a few days and I don't have my computer with me, so, I'm sorry for the delay... The idea is great, there isn't such thing in the blogosphere, it's just that I don't have that much of polish jazz and funk as I would like... But, we could try, I mean, posting on weekly basis or so... I'll be back home @ my computer in a week and we could then work on the whole idea, OK? Until then, peace...

Wow, gorgeous! The chords on that first track are immense! Weird, dark sci-fi synthscapes...

Thanx for this one!

this is a great album. one of the best things i have heard in recent years. i love the pulsing synths and the very organic and human drums contrasting with them. thank you so much for sharing.

Ok, thanx to you I now bought a copy of this baby on LP. What a fantastic record! And that sleeve really creates the perfect visual context for the music, my favorite Urs Amann ever...
