I just found the following CD and I was wondering if anybody has heard it
and could comment (especielly interested in the EYE disc of course!):
V/A E2-E4 2001: Tribute To Manuel G�ttsching (Saldisc)
Manuel G�ttsching, founder of legendary Kraut pioneers Ash Ra Temple,
recorded a few records in the eighties under his own name. "E2-E4", the
first among them and recorded in 1981, is hailed as a classic and is a great
influence for early Detroit techno artists like Derrick May and Carl Craig.
The resonant timelessness of said record has extended beyond and has
continuously popped up within more recent minimalist techno circles -- most
noticeably within the Cologne scene. And this collection reveals that Japan
has obviously been listening too. Disc one collects reinterpretations by the
likes of Rovo, Sugar Plant, Buffalo Daughter, Dub Squad, Hi Speed & Star
Light Express, and two other indecipherable acts (sorry, nobody here can
read Japanese!) Disc two is an extended mix by the mighty EYE of the
Boredoms! You probably already know if you need this based on the presence
of the contributing artists, but let it be said that none of these tracks
are representative of any of their 'normal' works. And there's always the
theory that if it ain't broke, don't fix it! Check out "E2-E4" by G�ttsching
for the real deal!
PS: Why not put the two yahoo Boredoms mailing lists together? I didn't find
any difference between them!
