Episode 293

Songs To Learn And Sing - Episode 293

This episode featured a couple of tracks from the latest Soul Jazz compilation, Deutsche Elektronische Musik: Experimental German Rock And Electronic Musik 1972-83. It's a fantastic compilation which as well as featuring a couple of well known tracks from Can, Neu!, Faust, Popol Vuh and Harmonia also features a load of bands that were new to me: Between, Gila, Ibliss, Kollectiv and Deuter. As ever with Soul Jazz this is worth it for the lavish booklet alone. A beautiful package with some stunning, timeless music.

Popol Vuh - Aguirre I
(From the soundtrack to Werner Herzog's Aguirre, the Wrath of God)

La Düsseldorf — Rheinita
(Formed by Neu! multi-instrumentalist Klaus Dinger after Neu! disbanded in 1976. Rheinita is taken from their 1978 album Viva.) 

This episode also featured two tracks from Denim's classic 1992 Back in Denim. After releasing 10 albums and 10 singles with Felt in the 1980s, Lawrence moved to New York and wrote Back in Denim. It's a masterpiece that was out of print for years.  Back in Denim is an ode to all things 70s and Glam rock, in fact the Glitter Band's Pete Phills drums a number of tracks.
