- Live '72 by Conrad Schnitzler
9/10 Brian Staff review, 08 July 2011
This is bloody mental. After listening to the live Ekoplekz album which transported me to the tense, bleak yet thrilling Industrial-scapes of the late 70's, here Mr. C. Schnitzler has a blinding unreleased concert from 1972 (the year I was born) released by the same imprint. I cannot believe how good this sounds, it's a really crisp, vibrant and detailed recording that showcases his bloopy, eerie cosmic soundworld to the hilt. If you're familiar with the early work of Tangerine Dream and Cluster/Kluster, both of whom the eccentric and highly innovative Schnitzler worked alongside initially, then you'll be more than aware that these acts, from the start, threw themselves into the unknown realms of thoroughly experimental textures and startling android rhythms - music that still to this day sounds like the heart-stopping emissions from a spaceship than actual music. This album is totally up there with the best material from those two pioneering groups and is probably representative of Schnitzler's most exciting work too! It's a little rougher round the edges than the studio recordings (ie. more organic and wild) that we're all familiar with but the amount of hazy, stellar and evocative synth work and way-ahead-of-their-time pulses and rhythms on this album leaves me no choice other than to bankrupt myself (again) and take one home. Really, if you buy one archive album this month make it this, you will realise that there is no substitute for this kind of groundbreaking genius...lovingly packaged by the incredibly switched-on Further.
