Item ID: 475347

Killer full length from ace experimental electronic musician Bernard Grancher. Grancher himself began his "career" as a somewhat under the radar, host/director of "mostly forbidden" radio programmes, where in Bernard's own words, he created "incongruous sound collages, that gradually slip towards noisy or disturbing sounds intended to replace the music of others', within its broadcasts". Then, armed with a large accumulation of "machines I found at low prices, with an unknowing of quite how they function" he sought the help of friends Yan Hart-Lemonnier and Eric Lumbleau (from the hugely respected 'Mutant Sounds' blog, and his project Vas Deferens Organazation). Then, having released what he describes as two "rather talkative" LPs by taking again "the concept of it's emissions: Hallucinatory slogans and electro punk", Grancher, then released with ERR.REC, leading in turn to the PY full length here. A fabulous LP hugely recommended to all kraut heads, experimental electronic sound collages, motorik grooves and minimal synth all figure strongly. To use one final quote from Grancher; "Abandon any idea of listening comfort; this record leads you into a dangerous race that will be impossible to jump on". 300 copies on vinyl only.
