Das Pferd (1987) (Deutschland)

This group (the horse) was a discovery from the mighty osurec and I want to give him credit for it. It reminds me a lot of US band The Inserts from the eighties with its sharp, angular and tritone-heavy dissonant and energetic style driven here by both guitars and knife-sharpened saxes. There are experimental tunes and a kind of industrial overall sound as if you were hearing the soundtrack to a huge factory cranking out creative musician robots out of leftover sheet metal and split riffs cut from dna polymerase reactions and amplified by marshall amps. I like that the production doesn't have the tinny early digital sound, the percussion is nice and tough and rough. The final track features a very slow free experimental jazz number with possibly only a dozen notes in total played by a grand piano and a breathy flute, I've included it as a sample below.

Tracks are composed by Kazda and Schmidtke.

Bass– Jan Kazda
Drums– Diethard Stein
Flute– Wolfgang Schmidtke
Guitar– Markus Wienstroer
Keyboards– Jan Kazda, Wolfgang Schmidtke
Saxophone– Wolfgang Schmidtke
Vocals– Jan Kazda, Wolfgang Schmidtke
Vocoder– Wolfgang Schmidtke

I'm a long time fan and lurker here. I love prognotfrog. Once a week I come by here and learn more about progressive rock. I've been inside it for decades, but it is always wonderful to come here and learn more. Keep up the good work - you are making a difference.
