More Info

УIn the ever ongoing search for old but not lost recordings by RLW, aka Ralf Wehowsky, we finally get the third volume in 'eaRLy W', a series started in 1997 by Swill Radio. On this LP we find the recordings from 1981 which RLW recorded as Rogalli. 'Neue Deutsche Peinlichkeit' was originally a c30 cassette, and is here in it's complete form, plus three bonus tracks from the same time. This is however not a solo recording by RLW, but he gets some help from future and past PD/P16.D4 members. What can be noted here is that the loose form improvisation of some RLW's older stuff is gone, and that he plays 'real' tracks, structured and played with care. A rhythm-box and guitars play an important role, feeding the sound through a bunch of distortion pedals and other relative simple means of transformation. But each of the pieces is a concise affair, a strict exploration of an idea per track. It's still far away from the latter cut-up concrete sound of P16.D4, but it's at the same time also a much more structured record than some of the preceding material. A transitional record so to say, not entirely cutting it previous ties, and not yet the form and structure of P16.D4. As with all of RLW's re-issues this is a highly essential re-issue, slowly unfolding pieces of forgotten history.Ф [FdW / Vital Weekly]
