100 texte enstanden im herbst 2005 während der jukebox im helsinkiclub
und wurden im februar 2006 auf papier gedruckt. es sind keine englischen
übersetzungen von bereits bestehenden texten. der reiz bestand vielmehr
darin, mich nach 30 jahren musikjournalismus einmal in einer fremden sprache
auszudrücken, mit sichtlichem spass auch über ein paar schweizer
artisten. entstanden ist dabei eine art zwischenbericht über meine
wichtigsten musikalischen einflüsse seit 1964 ... die selbstgewählte
bedingung bestand darin, dass erstens diese 100 alben momentan auf cd lieferbar
sein mussten und zweitens, dass auf die spezielle situation einer kleinen,
sympathischen musikbar im kreis 5 von zürich rücksicht genommen
wichtige figuren wie die beste krautrock-band faust, das phänomenale
gesangswunder ghedalia tazartes (paris), der 1992 an aids verstorbene new
yorker cellist arthur russell oder der britische minimalist gavin bryars
werden bestimmt später einmal in einem anderen kontext präsentiert
werden können. wie auch "quartett zum ende der zeit", das
1940-41 in kriegsgefangenschaft entstandene kammermusikwerk von olivier
messiaen, von dem ich bisher rund 47 verschiedene fassungen gesammelt habe...
die statistik: 58 der alben habe ich bereits im veröffentlichungsmonat
gekauft. 53 habe ich im konzert gesehen. 40 stammen weder aus den usa
noch uk. mit 30 habe ich persönliche gespräche oder interviews
geführt. 27 sind der punk-aera oder -aesthetik zuzurechnen. 24 sängerinnen
oder frauenbands sind dabei, zudem 15 weitere acts mit weiblicher prägung.
16 wären vor fünf jahren noch nicht in dieser liste aufgetaucht.
gestorben sind bisher erst 28...
liste wird unter www.recrec-shop.ch ständig einen ehrenplatz erhalten,
inkl. farbiger abbildung der covers. ich würde mich zwar als kenner
der populärmusik bezeichnen, trotzdem wende ich mich als kulturvermittler
immer auch an ein laienpublikum. mich stört an solchen jahrhundert-listen
in musikzeitschriften oft der ultimative tonfall. eine sogenannte objektive
auswahl der 100 wichtigsten alben kann es gar nicht geben. natürlich
freut es mich, über all diese "100 kinder" mit möglichst
vielen leuten sprechen zu können, aber wenn nur schon jemand dank
diesen 100 hinweisen fünf neue entdeckungen machen konnte, ist meine
mission bereits erfüllt! bitte verzeiht das unvermeidbare namedropping,
meine gelegentlichen seitenhiebe sowie das fehlen zahlreicher anderer
f. stauffer, im februar 2006
dank für das gegenlesen an röschu, düsi & housi...
"my favourite gay couple ordered this cd" (antonio soler) ...
to "he is kind of a living legend" (paul weixler) ... he will
tell you his hundred tales and then wander till spring ... print it out
& read it in a relaxed situation, with a glass of wine or smoking
"your last" cigarette ... after 30 years writing about music
in german, it was my spleen to write about this 100 favourite albums in
english ... please don't expect a perfect school english ... but i am
shure you understand my language very well ... feedback, questions, different
opinions etc. are welcome anytime ...
wishes: veit f.stauffer, february 2006 ...
SOLER "Keyboard Sonatas" (1729-83) Maggie Cole: Piano
...my favourite gay couple ordered this cd, after hearing it at swiss
radio. nothing in life prepared me early 2000 getting enthusiastic with
a baroque cembalo playing monk from spain. while listening to padre antonio
soler (1729-83) i only pressed one button: repeat! you could even catch
me listening to soler on 4 different players simultaneously. his ghost
is pretty apparent. he lived almost 220 years in the shadow of scarlatti.
in the meantime he received a skeleton-key to my flat and goes in and
out. whenever we meet, we treat each other with the utmost respect...
SATIE "Morceaux Choisis" (1866-1925) Jean-Joel Barbier:
Piano ...can i ask for a better introduction to my musical influences?
in her pre-feminist years my mother would do ironing while my father was
reading surrealist books to her, in the background they always played
this early satie-recordings of french player jean-joel barbier, recorded
from 1963-71. my most beautiful child memory, hearing this unique piano
music, full of humour & melancholy...
LESCHENKO "Tangos, Foxtrots & Romances" (35/96)
...a late surprising discovery by the famous berlin label oriente: the
russian answer to carlos gardel from argentinia. pjotr leschenko (1898-1954)
went through a lot of difficulties during the two world wars, apart from
gypsy songs he developed his miraculous tangos, sung in russian...
STALLING "Music From WB-Cartoons" (36-58/90)
...can the much overrated john zorn go home now? even without the cartoons
this music sounds ten times more adventurous than naked city. amazing
animated music, full of virtuosity & well organised madness...
CAGE "In A Landscape" (38-48/94) Stephen Drury: Piano
...during world war II john cage wrote his most aesthetic piano music,
influenced by henry cowell & erik satie. this album in the jukebox
is a tribute to my father serge stauffer (1929-89), who discovered john
cage already 1954 through marcel duchamp. stephen drury recorded in 1994
this fine selection of piano & organ-works, incl. "suite for
toy piano" &
"music for marcel duchamp". the piece "in a landscape"
(1948) is the first track i play for anyone who says they don't like john
...to my shame i was never much involved into those black blues-originals,
who where gently raped through rolling stones & co. during the 60's,
but this special album belongs to my favourite childhood memories around
1964. it's the best leadbelly album i know of, recorded 1944, released
1962 on capitol, finally here on cd. assisted by zitherist paul mason
howard on 8 tracks, with classics such as "goodnight irene"
& "take this hammer"...
FOSTER JENKINS "The Glory Of The Human Voice" (37-51/92)
...this timeless album of a millionaire "grande dame" who rented
carnegie hall to celebrate her absolut unmusical voice, is still a delight
up to this day and underlines my aversion against musicians who learn
just the technique but have no intuition. she kicked half japanese, the
shaggs & tiny tim out of this jukebox ...
LENYA "Berlin Theatre Songs" (55/97)
...the "mother" of it all, just think of dagmar krause, marianne
faithfull, pj harvey, jim morrison or franz treichler. her most brilliant
song collection, recorded during 1955 in hamburg with the roger bean orchestra.
a kind of "best of" from all the weill-operas, her stunning
voice was never in better shape...
VIAN "Le Deserteur" (55/97)
...around 1980 my best friends read through all his wonderful mockery
books, when finally we discovered this brilliant album with ten immortal
french chansons, full of funny jazz driving archness. some tracks like
"le deserteur" or "fais-moi mal johnny" you'll probably
known from other interpretations...
"Space Age Bachelor (58-67/94)
...imagine a ten times more intelligent figure like james last. this incredible
funny & creative exican guy lived from 1918-2002 and was discovered
again 1995 with the "easy listening" & "incredibly
strange music"-boom. his most prolific followers are van dyke parks
(los angeles) & jun miyake (japan)...
LINCOLN "Abbey Is Blue" (59)
...abbey lincoln has besides billie holiday perhaps the greatest female
voice in black music. a late discovery in 1991 through a brilliant portrait
at radio lora, i was impressed by her free jazz protest classic "freedom
now suite" (1960) with charismatic performer oscar brown jr. &
max roach. "abbey is blue" = the masterpiece of her earlier
work with such classics as "afro blue", "lonely house"
and "long as you're living"...
BEEFHEART "Safe As Milk" (67)
...this is the accessible first work of captain beefheart, and with it's
catchy blues-roots should be listenable also to people who roll their
eyes when talking about his key-work "trout mask replica" (69).
when in june 1977 we celebrated the 18th birthday of my friend dewe, i
gave him a c46 tape with 22x "the blimp" on it;-) i own all
beefheart albums, but specially like his recordings from 1967-71 and 1978-82...
"Chelsea Girl" (67)
...if you don't know much about the charismatic german chanteuse nico
(1939-88) of early velvet underground, who after "the end" (74)
sadly made her way through heroin, please start with the useful anthology
"classic years", which covers the years 1965-74. or watch the
great portrait-movie by susanne ofteringer. for the helsinki-bar i chose
her "easy listening"-debut, but the following 3 studio-albums
belong even more to my favourites, specially "marble index"
WALKER "Boy Child/Best Of" (67-70/90)
...around 1987 marc almond gave me with his brilliant coverversions the
key to understand jacques brel & scott walker. i already knew the
60's teenage band walker brothers, but was not aware that scott walker
developed from 1967-70 such visionary beautiful ballads, which fulminated
in his avantgarde-masterpiece "tilt" in 1994...
NEIL "Many Sides Of Fred Neil" (67-71)
...i always knew fred neil had a big influence on tim buckley, but it
took ten years before in 1987 i finally heard the original voice on a
british reissue. i still think harry nilsson played a better version of
his classic "everbody's talkin'", but please listen to his deeply
relaxed album "sessions" (67), included on this fantastic 2cd-anthology.
imagine johnny cash doing an album influenced by tim buckley's "lorca"
- and you get the picture! whenever i had an unhappy love affair, the
incredible low, but sweet baritone of "please send me somebody to
love" brought me back to life...
BUCKLEY "Dream Letter/Live In London" (68/90)
...we can only speculate how much influence tim buckley had on my life.
when a friend insisted, that obert wyatt is not the only experimental
singer in rock, i searched in a 15 months odyssey for all his 9 studioalbums.
when in october 78 i finally found "starsailor", i burried the
album in the garden, fearing too much obsession - just to buy another
copy only a few days later. in 1987 i produced a well received tribute
album "comebuckley" with swiss singer andi czech. 1991 i was
engaged for a film project about buckley, wrote a script, traveled to
los angeles, but then the "utopy" was cancelled. "starsailor"
still goes for 100.- dollar regularely on ebay, the beautiful "dream
letter" concert from london was the first official posthum release
with unreleased material. please consider also the 2cd-anthology "morning
glory". if you want a pure example for artistic evolution, just look
at tim buckley (1947-75)...
MACHINE "Volume One" (68)
...was there ever a better "fusion album"? my advice: try listen
only to the drums of robert wyatt: astonishing! next listen to his wonderful
voice, you can almost consider "volume one" as his first solo
album. just take the heartwarming ballad "a certain kind". then
we have this great, hendrix-alike electric organ by mike ratledge. the
stoical kevin ayers on bass, with his grandiose & ongoing dada-song
"we did it again". uplifting, thunderously powerful..!
APPLES "Silver Apples/Contact" (68-69/97)
...this futuristic group never appeared in any rock lexica i knew, but
their second album "contact" (69) still has a hypnotic influence
on me today, like in 1988 when i discovered them through sky bird &
the fish of hope. okay, the vocals may be weak, but this visionary keyboard
sound-madness (incl. funny banjo-gimmicks) predates a whole lot of techno,
and silver apples must be mentioned in the same breath as suicide, velvet
underground, soft machine, hawkwind and white noise...
"Monster Movie" (69)
...perhaps surprising, but i prefer can's debut "monster movie",
with the powerful exotic vocals of their first singer malcolm mooney -
although later albums as "ege bamyasi" (72) & "future
days" (73) are much more typical for the adventure developements
of holger czukay, irmin schmidt, michael karoli & jaki liebezeit...
...like harry partch & sun ra, moondog belongs to the legendary figures
in american music. moondog (1916-99) alias louis hardin was blind since
an explosion in his childhood. one of his first compositions "all
is loneliness" (51) was covered by janis joplin in 1968. "moondog"
(69) was recorded with an impressive 5o piece orchestra. this music is
deeply impressive & moving, without being pathetic for a second. powerful,
proud & purely magic. a timeless mix of classical music, jazz &
"Songs Of The Humpback Whale" (70)
...to every jukebox with music belong noises of animals:-)! in our childhood
we probably heard "peter & der wolf" and birds on records,
but whales? amazing stuff, which fitted perfectly in those psychedelic
DALTON "It's So Hard To Tell.." (70)
...somebody tried to describe her as "janis joplin of folk",
which is right in terms of voice-intensity. i would rather place her as
female answer to fred neil & tim buckley (era "happy sad"
& "blue afternoon"). she released only two marvelous albums
& then disappeared in obscurity. she died early 1993 after a troubled
life. in the booklet of this cd you see the first photo of bob dylan on
stage with karen dalton & fred neil, february 1961, at cafe wha? in
new york city. nick cave was influenced by her "katie cruel"-traditional
on "when i first came to town" (92). a few days ago i learned
that devendra banhart is also a devoted karen dalton-fan...
"Fun House" (70)
...i was still listening to genesis daily, when i discovered in spring
75 the three famous albums by iggy pop & the stooges. one result was
that six months later i photographed a counterfeit with myself of the
"raw power"-cover for a performance at the art school f &
f zürich. listen to the punk power of "t.v.eye" & "loose",
the breathtaking "dirt" or the cacaphony
of "l.a.blues". whenever i'm feeling "down & out",
this album brings me back from the grave...
ZAPPA "Chunga's Revenge" (70)
...this zappa choice will perhaps be a surprise, but for me his guitar
sounded never sexier! the rhythm group & brass section is very tight,
the crazy vocal inputs of leech & eddie were never better. featuring
aynsley dunbar (drums) & sugar cane harris (violin). the instrumental
"20 small cigars" is one of zappa's most beautiful pieces and
the title track was covered in 2001 by the gotan tango project. my favourite
zappa besides "overnite sensation" (73) & "we're only
in it for the money" (68)...
"Camembert Electrique" (71)
...the greatest anarcho rock you can ever imagine. powerful, loud &
excentric, a perfectly mix of futuristic rock, punk & free jazz-"madness".
amazing syd barrett-alike guitar-work by daevid allen & erotic space
whispers by gilli smyth, the most charismatic couple of that time beneath
yoko & john. when i started to understand this music i stopped listening
to frank zappa for 15 years...
OTIS "Inspiration Information" (71-74)
...a late amazing discovery in spring 2001, thanks to david byrne's luakabop-label.
no wonder present musicians like beck, prince, stereolab & high llamas
praise shuggie otis that much. subtle soul funk-pearls with magnificient
string arrangements, catchy keyboards and effective drumbox, which all
sounds that modern like recorded yesterday! hailed as a young black blues
guitar-"wunderkind", he was asked to replace mick taylor of
the rolling stones, but shuggie had other things in mind...
ONO "Approximately Infinite Universe (72)
...until today we can read those stupid "art critics" with old
ressentiments of disapointed beatles-fans. she was involved in new york
fluxus early 60's, befriended with john cage & lamonte young, before
she met john lennon. after the stunning pre-punk single “why”
(70) she recorded her most radical statement "fly" (71). but
her next double-album "approximately infinite universe" (72)
is definitely her key work on 21 tracks. yoko ono was never more refreshing
& relaxing, funny & touching. watch out for her already deleted
"onobox" and her impressive comeback album "rising"
(95), later remixed by tricky & sonic youth...
DYKE PARKS "Discover America" (72)
..."wonderful, adventurous and excotic pop mastermind" says
young norway singer sondre lerche on his website. what a present chris
cutler made to me when he mentioned parks 1978 in his first mailorder
catalogue. we can compare this exotic music with esquivel, brian wilson,
frank zappa, mighty sparrow, slapp happy or penguin cafe orchestra - but
those names will never catch the real genius of van dyke parks. for years
i tried to follow every album he was involved with or mentioned on, but
i gave up: there must be 5000 by now;-) his second album "discover
america" is the ultimate dandy pop-album or calypso-rock crossover...
SABBATH "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath" (73)
...to my own amusement i discovered this group again in recent years.
i bought this album fresh with 14 years and haven’t heard it for
three decades! two points are making this 5th album most remarkable, like
saying goodbye to the past & hello to the future: 1) one of the most
hated figures in ambitious symphonic rock, yes-keyboarder rick wakeman,
ruins as guest-musician on one track "who are you". 2) "killing
yourself to live" predates grunge for over 15 years, sounding like
a nirvana-track from "nevermind"...
CALE "Paris 1919" (73)
...he produced masterpieces by iggy pop & the stooges, nico, modern
lovers & patti smith: only for that he would deserve a lifelong place
on my jukebox island. his musical output is fascinating and to choose
one of his albums was a very difficult decision. cale was perhaps never
more gentleman in his own string arrangements to the charming popsongs
on "paris 1919". since the beginning with la monte young, tony
conrad & velvet underground: john cale is one of the most charismatic
figures in rock, until today with "hobo sapiens" and "black
COYNE "Marjorie Razorblade" (73)
...when dagmar krause wrote me early 1979 she would release "babble"
with kevin coyne (1944-2004), i bought all his albums in "record
time". the red card to virgin records in 2005: they refuse to release
again all his marvelous nine albums from 1973-80. on this early doublealbum
we hear the heartwarming "marlene", the pretty hot "eastbourne
ladies": he would pre-date punk, he was occupied for years as social-worker,
painted most of his covers & had always an eye for the working class.
he was asked 1971 to replace jim morrison of the doors, but kevin had
other things in mind...
HARVEY "Next" (73)
...i had absolutely no clue about the famous scottish entertainer alex
harvey (1935-82) until 2003, when the intriguing 2cd-anthology "consider
the situation" appeared. sometimes behaving like a mad cousin of
the marx brothers, always expressive to hell, with even zappaesk arrangements
like on the jacques brel-cover "next" or the "last of the
teenage idols". he has definitely less to do with other glam rock
figures like slade or gary glitter, he belongs more to originals like
captain beefheart, kevin coyne or ian dury. it's the sad irony of his
life, that his career came into big troubles through the punk movement.
he died on tour in belgium on a heart attack, a few days before a concert
in zürich, kino walche...
"Meet The Residents" (74)
...this group changed alot in my life between 1978-83. specially with
"duck stab/buster & glen" (78) and "commercial album"
(80), but i chose the outrageous debut from 1974 with the legendary beatles
gimmick-cover. to illustrate their creative potential of that peculiar
RIBEIRO "Le Rat Debile Et L'Homme Des Champs" (74)
...much underrated french singer with portugese roots, the beautiful &
longing "mood of fado" is close, mixed with fantastic innovative
and adventurous, progressive rock keyboard-sounds & long epique tracks...
COOPER "Welcome To My Nightmare" (75)
...all his albums before are probably better, but this is a theatre rock
masterpiece, the perfect antipode to "lamb lies down on broadway"
(genesis) of the same era, which shows a surprisingly varied alice within
one album, played by the fantastic band of lou reed's "rock'n'roll
ENO "Another Green World" (75)
...i was laying in bed with influenza when this album came out, heard
it every day, getting up after a week, stronger than before. when everbody
was complaining about boring mid 70's, only a few already recognized the
creative potential in the 4 popsong-albums by brian eno, recorded with
friends like robert wyatt, phil manzanera, john cale, robert fripp &
fred frith. 14 short little pieces, full of charming colours & tricky
HAPPY/HENRY COW "Desperate Straights" (75)
...this masterpiece with dagmar krause belongs to the central works in
creative rock! perhaps for unprepared people the avantgarde appeal is
difficult to understand today, but please listen to the sophisticated
pop of tracks 3,5,6 and 9. influenced by zappa, satie, rota, brecht/weill,
lenya, wyatt etc. all the members here created later countless other jewels
under their own name: fred frith, lindsay cooper, peter blegvad, anthony
moore, chris cutler, john greaves, dagmar krause...
TIPPETTS "Sunset Glow" (75)
...under the name julie driscoll she belonged until 1970 to the very well
received female voices, before she married jazz-pianist keith tippetts.
1971 she appeared with spontaneous music ensemble on the incredibly slow
album "birds of a feather", a very expensive free jazz-classic
on ebay today. she appeared in september 74 on robert wyatt's comeback
theatre drury lane london and released 1975 this beautiful, totally unique
album "sunset glow" with guest musicians all from king crimson
or soft machine...
BULGARES " Le Mystere De Voix Bulgares" (75)
...i was very touched when 1987 in the british reprint on the 4ad-label
ivo watts-russell compared the effect of this beautiful female choir music
from bulgaria with billie holiday & tim buckley. i have seen this
impressive choir 1988 in the fraumunster church zurich. after that began
the overkill, unfortunately this happens with so much that grows green
in the beginning...
AHMED "Ere Mela Mela" (75-78/99)
...originally first released in europe 1986 through the great "crammed
disc" from belgium, who brought us tuxedomoon, bebel gilberto, freezone
& taraf de haidouks. now available again in the fascinating "ethiopiques"-series
of french buda musique. i immediately fell in love with this exotic mix
of enthusiastic funky brass & keyboard-parts and heartbreaking love-ballads.
this music was opressed through the dictature in ethiopia for years. i'm
very happy to report that jim jarmusch discovered this music for his new
cult movie "broken flowers"...
"First Recordings" (76-78/89)
...still my favourite in klezmer music, this san francisco based klezmer
group around lev liberman, with a great cartoon cover by the legendary
robert crumb. for everbody who seriously loves balkan brass music full
of longing, the sad & beautiful jewish tradition, the italian school
of nino rota, jazz maestros like willem breuker, mike westbrook or carla
bley, the famous german trikont-label with "dead & gone"...
KUTI "Zombie" (76-78/01)
...when radical british noise trio this heat played in zürich april
1982, they supported their stunning performance with playing the "zombie"-album
by fela kuti from their mixing desk, overwhelming us with hypnotic afro
beats & vocals from nigeria. five years later the zurich based federlos
circus toured in nigeria and brought back in return the next generation
to switzerland: femi kuti...
MABOUL "11 Danses Pour Combattre La Migraine" (77)
...an absolutly classic of recommended records (rec rec) finally on cd.
a guide and heartopener for so much that would follow: for example fred
frith with "gravity" or the whole developement of pascal comelade.
cedric vuille of debile menthol & ensemble raye told me twice on the
phone, how happy he is to give this album away again as a present. the
multi colored influences on this album let my father predict in april
79, while "downloading" this album for his cassette collection:
"that's the music of the future!" - this music did not impresse
through virtuosity like f.e. henry cow with "in praise of learning",
but with incredible charme. erik satie was celebrating a wedding with
nino rota ("milano per caso"), duke ellington met for the first
time a drum machine ("mooche"), hatfield & the north had
a flirt with frank zappa ("son of l'idiot"), terry riley found
an old fender rhodes on a turkish bazar ("mastoul alakefak").
the "blue print" of all that would follow on the belgian crammed
BLEY "Dinner Music" (77)
...you'll always see me with a big smile while i listen to this album.
when it came out I just recovered from a months long depression, so this
heartwarming & sarcastic flirt with "mainstream jazz" full
of archness was exactly the right medicine. carla bley & michael mantler
were like alternate parents for me then, building a bridge between contemporary
jazz & profound literature like samuel beckett, inviting half the
crew of the soft machine-family...
UBU "Modern Dance" (77)
... this was my ticket discovering the whole punk/new wave-era between
1977-82. i discovered them may 78: for my taste the sex pistols were going
behind the stooges & jonathan richman, but "modern dance"
was a radical & refreshing update of captain beefheart-influences,
with singer david thomas as the great leader, who brought the famous alfred
jarry-figure back to flesh. unsurprisingly, rec rec zürich organised
soon later regularely concerts with either pere ubu, david thomas or labelmates
"Traite De Mecanique Populaire" (77)
...the most bizarre & original erik satie-tribut ever recorded. aksak
maboul created a similar atmosphere. those french guys don't play satie,
but his ghost is apparent through the whole joyful 34 minutes. they also
studied don van vliet & the french surrealists. a modern classical
chamber music piece with electric piano, bass, guitars, violins, sax &
flute. don't expect to
fully understand this strange music on first listening. start with great
tango track 9 "garden party". hector zazou & joseph racaille
developed later on international careers...
FITZGERALD "Safety Pin Stuck In My Heart/Best Of" (77-79)
...the music press pushed the 21 years old patrik fitzgerald as the "punk
poet", when in 1977-78 three singles appeared on small wonder. aggressive
ballads with a melancholic touch on the coustic guitar, comparable with
the results of tim buckley & kevin coyne. his lyrics were excellent.
in his later sparely work he went through a rather depressing phase which
reminded of peter hammill or nico, before he lightened up in a great kevin
ayers-manner with "tunisian twist" (86). hopefully there will
be a comeback soon: he lives in new zealand today and he'll be 50 in 2006...
PEACOCK "My Mother Never Thaught Me How To Cook" (78-82)
...i did not realise her importance to me during the 80's and had to search
& find all her albums in recent years again. on this cd-anthology
you hear her intriguing sensual albums "x-dreams" (78) &
"perfect release" (79) with those countless british jazz rock-cracks.
because then you cannot escape from her unique voice, which grew to stunning
maturity on "acrobat's heart" (2000). bowie wanted to produce
her, but annette had other things in mind...
"Half Machine Lip Moves" (79)
...i heard this album already in 1979, but did not care further until
spring 2005, when i had an amazing "comeback" with chrome &
their frontman damon edge, who died already 1995 under mysterious circumstances.
profound visionary stuff, every minute changing the attitude. Hawkwind,
faust, can, gong, pil, fad gadget, pere ubu, cabaret voltaire & suicide
comes to mind. listen to the middle section of track 7: sounding like
a great gimmick-caricature of mick jagger...
"Chewing Hides The Sound" (79)
...its a mystery to me how british gentleman & san francisco based
guitar maestro snakefinger (1949-87) could be forgotten so soon. all his
4 studio albums between 1979-87 are marvelous, this was his great debut
album including a funny kraftwerk-version of "the model". for
fans of zappa & nino rota & fred frith...
KENNEDYS "Fresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables" (80)
...from all the great punk albums or singles i heard between 1977-82,
this is definitely the most powerful & radical. better than any coffee
to wake you up in the morning. singer jello biafra is an original figure
of his own, also a famous record collector...
LUNCH "Queen Of Siam" (80)
...she stands right here to represent the lunatic scene around sonic youth,
birthday party, einstuerzende neubauten, lounge lizards, foetus, diamanda
galas & swans. "queen of siam" is her central early work,
a punk vamp classic of the genre. listen to the fiery "atomic bongos",
the tricky jazz brass-arrangements of "a cruise to the moon"
or her great remake of "spooky". she's the (morbid) underground
sister of patti smith & pj harvey...
"Half Mute" (80)
...i often compare the importance of this album with "velvet underground
& nico", if you add the exploding power of tuxedomoon's four
track-ep "no tears" from 1978. a similar stimulating atmosphere
has "big science" of laurie anderson. this westcoast-no wave
bands around ralph records (residents, chrome, tuxedomoon, mx-80 sound)
cannot be overrated. intense & modernistic electronic pop with the
feverish violin of blaine reininger...
ARTISTS - "Miniatures" (80)
...perhaps the most original & important compilation ever, collected
1980 by hybrid kids-mastermind & ex-mott the hoople-keyboarder morgan
fisher. each group or musician had only 60 seconds for their statement:
from protest folk singer pete seeger, painter ralph steadman, psychiatrist
r.d.laing over punk-hereos like the damned, xtc, alternative tv, pretenders
or half japanese to creative leaders like fred frith, simon jeffes, gavin
bryars, robert wyatt, residents, zazou & racaille, michael nyman,
neil innes, kevin coyne, robert fripp and lol coxhill. the musical pendant
to the world famous "schubladenmuseum" by swiss herbert distel,
who certainly also had his minute here. post punk-dada at it's best...
REISER " Am Piano 2" (81-91/99)
...my very first rock concert was 1973 with the german left wing anarchos
ton steine scherben, with front figure rio reiser. the group escaped 1975
from berlin & agitprop to the countryside. after his untimely death
in 1996 with 46 years, influenced through an engaged epitaph by blixa
bargeld, i began to realise his importance in german rock. listen to his
final album "himmel & hölle" (95) and to both posthum
albums "am piano 1 + 2", with delightful live tracks, outtakes
& rehearsals - with countless rough diamonds, much more important
than his "mainstream"-career over 4 albums for sony, which brought
him only luck in the beginning...
MENTHOL "Emile Au Jardin Patrologique" (83)
...this 7 piece group from neuchatel (french part of switzerland) did
not find a label for 18 months, so we decided to found the rec rec label
in zürich. in the cold winter of february 83 four friends drove in
a van through france over the canal for england, to pick up 2000 copies
pressed at nimbus. with remarkable international success debile menthol
brew influences together such as easteuropean folk tunes, soundtrack-
and circusmusic, electronic experiments, jazz- & beatlicks. their
line-up included a punk-drummer & a stravinsky trained female violinist.
a music full of sprinkling ideas & black humour...
FRITH "Cheap At Half The Price" (83)
...still one of my favourite albums by charismatic musician fred frith
who made a long way since his debut in 1973 with henry cow. beneath some
tracks with skeleton crew this is the only album where he developed his
own vocal style, mixed with lovely east european influences on violin
& guitar. you will recognise three tracks used in the soundtrack for
"step across the border"...
CAFE ORCHESTRA "Signs Of Life" (87)
...beneath pascal comelade & joseph racaille, penguin cafe orchestra-leader
simon jeffes (1949-97) is perhaps the greatest european composer coming
out of the "pop-art". all his 5 carefully recorded studio albums
are masterpieces. beloved by children of all ages! joyful, charming &
heartful. erik satie would be proud of all his youngsters today...
PIAZZOLLA "Rough Dancer & Cyclical Night" (87)
...my widowed mother found a new love through tango dancing in recent
years. before travelling to paris with 18 years i bought a cheap tango
cassette for five bucks. director sally potter dedicated her movie "tango
lesson" (97) to the whole genre. the first track of the most popular
slapp happy-album is a tango ("casablanca moon"). this late
"serious" masterpiece by astor piazzolla was always very touching
BIRD "Sky Bird & The Fish Of Hopes" (88-90)
...he could have been bigger than stephan eicher & dieter meier, but
like arthur rimbaud he disappeared in africa, where he worked for the
red cross, bored by the mechanism of the music business. claudius scholer
(*1965) gave a rather short musical appearance between 1988-93 with only
two albums. visionary stuff compared to bob dylan, tom waits, jacques
brel & vladimir vissotzky...
VELOSO "Estrangeiro" (89)
...arto lindsay & peter scherer (ambitious lovers) gave me the key
to the door of brasilian maestro caetano veloso, when producing this feverish
"comeback" with a healthy new york-touch, including guitarists
bill frisell & marc ribot. i listened through the whole body of work
with 40 albums and discovered many other masterpieces, specially the unbelievable
"araca azul" (72). from all the still living & performing
singer/songwriters, spanning a time of almost 40 years, caetano veloso
is (besides daevid allen) the most important for me...
GODS "L'Eau Rouge" (89)
...i lived in the same flat as the young gods when they recorded this
2nd album in zürich. singer franz treichler borrowed a demo tape
from me with music of sky bird's accordeon-player, came home in the evening
and had used samples for "Charlotte";-) i saw the group the
first time in a small club in berlin may 1987 and was deeply impressed.
jim morrison influenced visionary stuff, please stop mentioning their
epigones ministry & nine inch nails again when i'm near you...
ZELWER "La Fiancee Aux Yeux De Bois" (90)
...from all accordion-influenced projects in the last 15 years this zelwer-debut
belongs to the strongest, on the same belgian crammed-label as askak maboul.
a breath-taking trip through east european childhood memories of zelwer's
grandfather. gypsy power in splendid combination with electronic instruments,
with heartbreaking little details...
PROCHAINES "Lob Ehre Ruhm & Dank" (93)
...famous swiss female band from basel, still alive & fresh after
different changes in the line up. this is their second album, the last
one with artist pipilotti rist as a full member. they sing in german,
french, english, spanish & swiss. not fearing the terrain of "bad
taste", les reines prochaines are impressing us with a great deal
of theatrical flair. short poems, a delightful klezmer-clarinet. Best
examples are “komm mit mir aufs floss", "aline" or
"winterreise". the secret coverversions "you called me
jacky" (coyne) & "evening" (stones) will bring tears
in your eyes...
BUCKLEY "Grace" (94)
...when i received this album on the 25th august 1994 nobody disturbed
me in the shop, no customer came in, no phone rang. 52 minutes later i
was a different person: so much beauty, sheer power, elegance & erotism.
Through jeff i discovered led zeppelin again (vol. 3 was my first self
bought album with 11 years). that he died before realising his 2nd studio
album and before he could solve the problems with his absent father tim,
sounds like a greek tragedy...
PLAYBOYS "Latin Playboys" (94)
...breath-taking los lobos-take of, with instrumental gems & uncompromising
popsongs in the tradition of harry partch, residents & tom waits,
sounds refreshing until today...
MARCLAY & GÜNTER MÜLLER "Live Improvisation"
...this album should belong to every good comedy-collection of the 20th
century, at the same time it's one of my favourite albums with improvised
music. this 13 tracks by the two swiss guys christian marclay (turntables
& records) and günter müller (drums & electronics) are
stimulating & entertaining. with great cover art, too!...
HAS "Landjäger" (94)
...singer & poet endo anaconda became an important figure in swiss
music from the last 20 years. founded as a duo with multi-instrumentalist
balts nill, on their third album "landjäger" they played
the only time backed by a 9 piece orkester. endo's word acrobatics are
legendary, there is so much heart, courage & engagement in his poetry,
as in the intense musical arrangements. english listeners should start
with "garbage lady" here. other highlights are the groovy "giele"
and the heartbreaking "du wosch mi nid"...
FONTAINE "Genre Humain" (95)
...apart from catherine ribeiro my favourite french singer from the "hippie-generation".
a late discovery in 1996, when a good customer mentioned her legendary
album "comme a la radio" (1971) with the art ensemble of chicago.
her stubborn female character is a big delight! on her comeback-album
"genre humain" i like the arabian touch in those driving popsongs.
also highly recommended: her album "kekeland" (2001) with the
help from archie shepp & members of gong & sonic youth...
HARVEY "To Bring You My Love" (95)
...i was deeply impressed by her fulminant appearence in the british post-grunge-scene
with a healthy dose of beefheart-influence. the 4th opus "to bring
me my love" was released at the peak of her popularity. the most
professional recording yet, which appealed both to fans of nick cave &
patti smith. i still suffer her cancelled zurich gig on 2th december 1995,
due to the fact of health problems...
NUDES "Wise To The Heat" (95)
..."in loving memory of daniel & valentin", this beautiful
album was dedicated to my friend after his tragic accident in the swiss
mountains with his son on sept 3, 1995. a short living band with female
singer & accordionist amy denio from seattle with the two swiss musicians
mich gerber & wädi gysi...
CAPOSSELA "Il Ballo Di San Vito" (96)
...my favourite italian cantautori! sounds like a hybrid between tom waits
& paolo conte, with a brilliant mix of fast numbers and beautiful
ballads. listen to the superb nino rota-flair in "al veglione".
featuring marc ribot & evan lurie...
MATTO "Viva! La Woman" (96)
...a classic album of selfconfident & varied female popmusic, in the
elegant language of trip hop-beats and modern sampling-technique. debut
by this young japanese duo of miha hatori & yuka honda in new york.
funny, irascible & stimulating...
"How I Quit Smoking" (96)
...with this second album songwriter kurt wagner found his own language.
A very beautiful & sweet album, goes down the throat like pure honey,
without beeing pathetic for a second. three years later i finally quit
LINDSAY "Mundo Civilizado" (96)
...another figure from the legendary "no new york"-fame around
1980. nobody knew exactly where this neurotic front-figure of the noise-band
dna would go, until mid 90's when he discovered again his brazilian roots.
my favourite of all his bossa nova-albums, incl. the catchy cover-artwork...
SMITH "Gone Again" (96)
...i had to recover from various death in my circle too, so this comeback
came out in the right moment. my favourite album apart from "horses"
and "radio ethiopia". patti smith' mourning songs on her dead
husband fred smith (of famous mc 5) are giving me cold shivers down the
neck. feat. jeff buckley, john cale & tom verlaine...
YOUNG "Dead Man/OST" (96)
...my favourite album of neil young besides "on the beach",
this stunning instrumental solo guitar performance for the controversial
movie by jim jarmusch, in my opinion a clever parody of the wild west-genre.
just before i went to the cinema i received a phone call to learn the
sad news that my good friend mathias, who was a big neil young-fan, died
of heart failure...
"La Llorona" (97)
...what a beautiful & heartwarming voice! this fine female singer
has roots in mexico, france, america and canada. this debut album was
sung all in spanish, the band is marvelous and is going everywhere the
voice wants to. in recent years the best selling artist from the rec rec
RACAILLE "Racaille" (97)
... a still much underrated french genius: a splendid mix between van
dyke parks, erik satie, carl stalling & esquivel! this was his most
expensive & carefully recorded masterpiece, produced for warner brothers/france.
charming french vocals, arabic touches & circus atmosphere. marvellous...
WYATT "Shleep" (97)
...the "father" of it all, singer & drummer with legendary
soft machine, mentor of the "canterbury scene", since 1973 in
a wheelchair after an accident with alcohol, writing in hospital the brilliant
"rock bottom" (74), playing live with henry cow in 1975, doing
a break until 1980, still going strong up to this day. one of the most
original leftwing & adrogyn voices in popmusic...
BONICHE "Alger Alger" (98)
...produced by bill laswell, this is a charming & heartbreaking mix
of french chanson, jewish tradition & arabic roots. smiling lili boniche
is over 70 years old...
COMELADE "L'Argot Du Bruit" (98)
...a definitive highlight in the almost endless discography of this beloved
french minimal pop instrumental maestro, who is the pioneer in using children
instruments in order to extend our musical horizons. always being charming
& heartwarming, pascal comelade was shortly before discovered by pj
harvey, who appears here on number 6 and 11 for two rare vocal tracks...
PENA "Phados" (98)
...amazingly intense "broken fado" by this 24 years old "seconda"
from belgium, reduced to the skeleton in an empty flat with her acoustic
guitar. the fascintating androgyn charisma of her personality is unique.
hopefully there will be a second album. honest naked coverversions by
caetano veloso, chico buarque & maria teresa carvalho...
RIBOT "Y Los Cubanos Postizos" (98)
...a wonderful and innovative tribut to cuban composer & band leader
arsenio rodriguez, played by marc ribot with the best new york downtown-cracks.
sounds like carlos santana after a healthy diet or like "crime jazz"-latino
in the vein of lounge lizards, los lobos or latin playboys...
TOBIN "Permutation" (98)
...the only "techno"-album in this collection, but it's a masterpiece!
you can listen to those 12 tracks in 70 minutes as background music without
loosing the quality, but you can also give it a "serious listening"
and you hear always a different album. the complex music is always in
a refreshing flow...
"Diary Of A Snake Charmer" (96-98/02)
...the most impressive posthum album of a fine musician who "knows",
he will die on cancer soon. a profound melancholy meets healthy portions
of black humour. almost every record company in switzerland released one
album with dominique alioth (1958-99), in the hope to produce a hit. an
impressive epitaph of someone who was the swiss pendant to david bowie
and elvis costello...
DOWD "Pictures From Life's Other Side" (99)
...nothing against tom waits, but this recently discovered songwriter
has more power & dark humour. also highly recommended to fans of captain
beefheart, william burroughs, nikki sudden, residents, lee hazlewood,
jeffrey lee pierce. he's got a crazy female back up-singer and his drummer
is called brian wilson (no joke!)...
BREUT "Vingt A Trente Mille Jours" (00)
...an amazing striking voice of this nouveau french chanson, cool &
warm at the same time. my favourite chanteuse of all those young french
songwriters. with echoes of trip hop & calexico influenced style...
CASH "Solitary Man" (00)
...i had a late meeting with this country maestro, his final four albums
are marvelous and beneath that, some years ago, while reading his memoirs,
johnny cash helped me to cure a little alcohol problem...
...what is "progressive rock" all about? during the 70's we
had henry cow, magma & faust, during the 80's cassiber, univers zero
& skeleton crew, and at present we have guapo & volapük,
the two strongest bands today. the new french trio of famous drummer guigou
chenevier (ex-etron fou leloublan) with a female japanese violinist flows
from east to west with marvellous instrumental gems...
BLACK "Dog In The Sand" (01)
...after his famous debut with the pixies in 1987, i lost the survey over
his various solo-albums, but was surprised to discover in 2001 this "country-rock"-masterpiece,
sung from the heart with a strong voice. for my taste tops the rolling
stones-opus "exile on main street"...
GARBAREK "Smiling & Waving" (01)
...reduced to the skeleton, intelligent electro-pop-pieces, emotional
& naked, with echoes from bjoerk & stina nordenstam. with the
help from robert wyatt & mark hollis...
LERCHE "Faces Down" (01)
...the most juvenile hope since the debut of tim buckley. what a magical
young butterfly from norway! we discover echoes of charming beatles-hymns,
a melancholy but invincible strong voice, touching the timbre of kevin
ayers & al stewart, with marvelous string-arrangements by sean o'hagan
of famous high llamas...
MIYAKE "Mondo Erotica" (01)
...one of the most important discoverings of recent years, this magical
& intelligent music sounds like a sensual paradise. japanese maestro
jun miyake (*1958) plays keyboards & trumpet, influenced by riuychi
sakamoto, van dyke parks, serge gainsbourg, jon hassell and miles davis.
a wonderful melange of lounge, french chanson, jazz-ambient, minimal music
WILLIAMS "Amethyst Rock Star" (01)
...my hero from the hip hop front. powerful & resolute statements,
sometimes sounding like gil scott-heron backed by post-punk-wizards rip
rig & panic, including a strong violin & a healthy dose of metal.
black power is coming back again...
"We Are Your Friends" (02)
...intelligent update of brian eno's innovative song-concept between 1973-77,
echoing bands like wire, xtc, japan or soft cell. first you get the impression:
middle of the road-techno pop, but repeat listening shows: this music
has deeper roots. just listen to the futuristic ballad "she's in
mind", which sounds like syd barrett backed by the beach boys...
WORKMAN "Delicious Wolves" (02)
...this french-canadian guy comes very close to jeff buckley ("you
me and the weather", "what a woman"), in its beauty, exhilaration
& playfullness, but has also the amazing irony of jay jay johanson
("i'm jealous of your cigarette") with perfect old school dandy
manner and a healthy dose of 70's glam-rock...
MERCHANT "House Carpenter's Daughter" (03)
...beautiful, heart warming remakes of traditional & contemporary
folk music. only how she stretches the first line "a woman of beauty
a woman of pain in france or jakarta", sounds like a yet unknown
african dialect, with melancholical euphoria. after tim buckley &
johnny cash we have here "wayfaring stranger" for the 3rd time
in this jukebox...
MISSILE "Psychopathology Of Everyday Life" (03)
...this wild masterwork of new york city spokesman john s. hall sounds
like the meeting of the political radicalism of jello biafra (dead kennedys)
with the profound sarcasm of frank zappa. lenny bruce would have been
impressed by this performance...
WEIXLER "Freiwild" (03)
...besides being a fan of iggy pop, the stones and ramones, 1955 swiss
born paul weixler from schwamendingen finally found a way to released
12 of his most original song pearls, with brilliant help from happy sad-guitarist
heinz roarer as producer & babs hiestand with vocals & graphics.
rumours say that weixler wrote the lyrics to famous punk classic "züri
brännt". he is kind of a living legend...
f.stauffer was born 19th january 1959 on the 2nd floor of münstergasse
8 in the old town of zürich as the third child of serge & doris
stauffer, both photographers and later co-founders of the privat artschool
farbe & form. he played drums with the swiss groups razzia (1975-76),
feifi & edi (1977-78) & city vibes (1979-80).
he released three books: his autobiography "halbweiss" (1983),
the rec rec katalog 1986-88 (1986) & the comic relief-photo booklet
"der stationsvorstand" (2000). he lived at different places
in zürich, since 1994 unmarried with maria gasche and has two kids
from earlier relationships: orlando (*1985) & raffaela (*1989). he
is very proud to celebrate his 50th birthday in 2009 on the same day edgar
allan poe will be 200 years...
