Release Info: HARALD SACK ZIEGLER-ZEHN METER LANGES REGAL KIPPTE UM, TAPE, 1990, GERMANY
Following up on my recent post of his +10% Pustekuchen tape, here's more modestly scaled and whimsy sodden formulations from this longstanding naif mage and future member of folktronica operatives Sack Und Blumm. There's a tradition of this sorta thing within German underground music culture that extends from the the mercurial Neue Deutsche Welle electropop experimentation of Die Welttraumforscher and wends it's way forward to the weirder edges of the Cologne electronica axis via the likes of Schlammpeitziger. Smack dab in between those eras, Ziegler was imagining a candy coated and casio toned universe of cockamamie caprice, whose air of frivolity belies what a richly developed and unique vernacular it is that he's developed; indeed one that bears comparison with masters of the form like Pascal Comelade and Pierre Bastien. Blog friend Roger can be thanked once again for providing this treasure.
