La Gueule Du Loup

(Fragment Factory - FRAG41) CD $12.75 (Out-of-stock)

This high-voltage electronic collaboration is a brutal jump in an ocean of noise steel. Modular synthesizers sing cruelly in the duo’s exploratory and abrasive free improv. La Gueule Du Loup arises rough from the manipulated modules and is propelled immediately into the atmosphere where it becomes virtual plasma. Elements, sounds, tones, micro-tones, and rhythms cohere in order and chaos. Edition of 300

(Fragment Factory - FRAG31) CD $17.25 (Out-of-stock)

Sound transformed from data transmitted via wireless electroencephalograph headsets worn by the performers, received by sound engineers and processed before emerging through eight speakers surrounding the audience. Performing live without prior tests or rehearsals, each member of the quartet develops and gains control over his own brainwave patterns by listening to the results of his mental activity and changing electric impulses of the brain, thereby sculpting the sound through their minds alone. Edition of 300

Das Baank
 — A New Era Of Economical Growth And Prosperity And Safety And Power

(Fragment Factory - FRAG36) LP $20.00 (Out-of-stock)

The music traverses between carefully paced dramatic musical passages, and sections of pure and often confrontational noise. “DasB1” opens the album with a haunting chorus of ghostly voices submerged within a quasi-orchestral movement; subsequent tracks go deeper into industrial-sounding territories, providing an antithesis and an exhilarating liberation from the shackles of established normality and complacency. Edition of 300.

Three previously unreleased tracks from 1987, recorded in Örebro, Sweden. Raw and primitive staccato electronics with Kai Parviainen’s specific touch of utter insanity. Edition of 250. Sound samples are here:


Die Arbeiter von Wien

(Fragment Factory - FRAG19) 7-inch $13.50 (Out-of-stock)

The third part in Jupitter-Larsen's series of old trade union / battle songs follows Internationale (Banned Production 2010) and Solidarity CD (Banned Production 2010). Written by the Viennese lyricist and essayist Fritz Brügel, presumably in the late 1920s, this piece deals with the events during the so-called "July Revolt" in the capital of Austria on July 15, 1927, caused by a court verdict which acquitted three members of the right-wing Frontkämpfervereinigung Deutsch-Österreichs (the same persons were responsible for the death of a man and an eight-year-old the same year). The palace of justice went up in flames, at least eighty demonstrators were shot dead by the police, more than six-hundred people were injured. The stage was set for a fascist takeover in Austria. Jupitter-Larsen's two renditions are crude, P.E.-ish, vocal-heavy. One side with the original German lyrics, one side with the lyrics translated into English. Double-sided full-color sleeve, lyrics included. Edition of 250.
