8/10 Phil Staff review, 08 February 2009
The Qbico label from Italy is always interesting. Whether you like the music on there or not it's always undeniably interesting. Here's another undeniably interesting record from Hartmut Geerken and John Tchicai called The Kabul And Teheran Tapes. Called that because that's where the album was recorded. It looks and sounds like they're using some instruments native to these countries to make their experimental noodlings. It's weirdly quite coherent at times. For what seems like edited jams there is some structure to the music which seems to be largely constructed of piano and percussion. If I was being cynical I'd say it just sounds like 2 people arsing about. But I'm not on this occasion as it sounds like 2 people who know they're onions trying to do something really interesting. I've not mentioned it was recorded 30 years ago which makes all the difference in my book. I'm all for this one. Yeah I like it. Sorry about the price though... you can blame the cocking euro for that!
