Sequential Echos




Überfällig is Günter Schickert's second solo lp. This one was released on the Sky label in 1979. Schickert is a guitarist and uses a looping system with echo, along the same lines as Reichel, Göttsching and Bloch. Charles M. Heuer is playing drums on a few tracks, also with an echo or delay technique. Brigitta Nabucet is providing the vocals on the second track, In Der Zeit. While this lp has similarities with other recordings in the same vein, to my ears it is still uniquely Günter Schickert.

I love this record! A little more "Elektronisch" than Samtvogel and for the good of it.Not a bad track on it. Nevertheless I prefer some older Apricot Brandy ; ) Thanks a ton for a excellent rip and post!

Lovely record, one of our favourites.

And BTW we posted his rare odds-&-scraps disc Somnambul recently too: http://friendsound.wordpress.com/2009/11/12/gunter-schickert-somnambul/

I have this already, but I need to chime in here and say this is one of my all-time fave K-rock discs. The first track totally kicks. "Apricot Brandy" (on Samtvogel) is good too though! As is Somnambul, so everyone go over to Stefan's and get that one too (thanks Stefan!).
