|december 2011 release ; ... vinyl issue of the sought-after debut self-release by no ufo’s, about which ::|
... just a sampling of the goings-on inside the skull of one konrad jandavs, electronically converted to sound & laid to tape (incidentally ; very nice tape-edition - pro-duped & within a nicely laid-out duo-tone j-card) ... huge mix of electro-jams, filtered-out chord-clouds, terry riley-style organ-panners, and more sci-fi oriented material(s) ...
... major upgrade of one of my favorite tapes of last year ; this ends out a hell of year for spectrum spools (already hearing rumors of a robert turman 2lp & plenty of other surprises for 2012) ...

sp 011 / no ufo's
here at spectrum spools, one of the many missions is to make sure great, under-documented, and limited offerings get a chance to see a wider release. no ufo's debut cassette,"soft coast" (2010, nice up int'l), is surely no exception. it was said about the swell maps "a trip to marineville" that the album had been obviously crafted by true music lovers who were record collectors. it seems that konrad jandavs' debut as no ufo's was calculated and carefully pieced together to spawn a whole new universe from the omniverse of collective musics, a feat which many attempt but few succeed. lazy comparisons to neu! and other such kraut-oriented material have bubbled up here and there, but jandavs' vision, as with any great recording artist, is all his own; a new perspective from looking at musics past and present.
"soft coast" began jandavs' short, yet potent string of collaged "cosmic trash" which gripped the underground tape scene. since he's just seen the drop of his new "mind controls the flood" ep on public information and has future releases planned, it seems wrong to let this one slip thru the cracks any longer. a killer debut out of the blue, more than deserving of wider recognition, now available on vinyl.
