Neros tanzende Elektropäpste – “Rotes Brikett”

Exactly 30 (!) years after the release of their last offering on Reinfall Tapes H´rath,
“Die hohe Kunst des Schwitzens” (The noble art of sweating, 1983), there is news
from Aachen´s NDW-absurdists Neros Tanzende Elektropäpste. NTEP-mastermind
ENK, word-smith and synthesizer buff extraordinaire meanwhile living in the North-
East of China – during daytimes disguised as a Professor of Linguistics – has returned
to his musical roots: un-dusted his fretless bass guitar and drumboxes, and for good
measure added a hefty alto sax to the Nero´s acoustic arsenal.
Joined via internet by his original NTEP collaborator Rolf Merx on guitar, he lays down
a thick carpet of synthesized hamster funk, pumping retro electo pieces, and rythmic
sound collages for lyrics bristling with NTEP´s trademark Dada humor. Poking fun at
the pompous twats running today’s Germany, the war-mongering Yanks, the churches,
and generally taking the piss. Due to the long hiatus and abundance of material
accumulated, “Rotes Brikett” (= Red Briquette) features almost two hours of new songs.
Ranging from polished, catchy numbers to old-style NTEP-oddities using samples from
underground movies, the processed voices of Dada pioneers Huelsenbeck and Schwitters,
and original lyrics spoken or sung by computer, in eye-winking Kraftwerk tradition.
The heavily effect-treated saxophone (think: Jon Hassle, with a dash of James Chance)
adds a different flavour to some of the pieces. A worthy return of Aix-la-Chapelle´s
former underground heroes. Who would have expected this? In another place, in
another time: Neros Tanzende Elektropäpste are back. Sharper and wittier than
ever, musically matured, and still in a class of their own. Nonsense deluxe!
 Double-tape box charged with 2 high quality, custom made chrome (type2) tapes, professionally dubbed with tascam copy machine.

Price is 12,90 EUR for the box, shipping cost depends on destination. For order purpose please get in touch via email: eigenbau at rowenta.cc

Drachensülze/Waldfriedhof

High bias chrome tape.

A station-to-station transcendental journey from the post-industrial coal hills of Duffesheide
along mouldy bus lines, all the way to Dead Man´s Curve (“Von der Disco in den Tod”), and
untimately Waldfriedhof, an old cemetery outside Aix-la-Chapelle. Propelled by the evil spirit
of Knolli Schabau, a ritual drink distilled from local potatoes and imbibed by the youth of
Duffesheide at the annual Potato Festival. There are strange forces at work here…
Drachensülze Waldfriedhof present their very own brand of industrial psychedelia, cut-up
layered walls of swirling percussion, disembodied voices, shreds of noise, horny grunting
priests, computer-generated voices, and the triumphant howling of yellow elephants.
Hidden among the rhythmic debris as a bonus, there is a recording of some of  Aachen´s
finest: pioneers of the 80´s tape scene, reminiscing and narrating tales of way back when,
among the clanging of glasses.

Price is 7,00 EUR for the tape, shipping cost depends on destination. For order purpose please get in touch via email: eigenbau at rowenta.cc

Abnorm

Double MC album.

An offical reissue of the two Abnorm tapes originally released in 1981 on “Reinfall Tapes”, catalogue numbers rc005 – Letzte Ölung and rc010 – Leise flehen meine Lieder. Sometimes resembling the contemporaneous NDW, sometimes in the field of electronic and electro-acoustic experimentation. Some tracks with absurdist and DaDa lyrics, highly original. Their complete recordings are re-relased as a double-tape box, featuring collages created for this occasion by one of the original Abnorm-ists.

Price is 12,90 EUR for the box, shipping cost depends on destination. For order purpose please get in touch via email: eigenbau at rowenta.cc

Neros tanzende Elektropäpste (= Nero´s dancing electro-popes) – Lust am Untergang-BOX

Double MC album.

The better-known follow-up project of Abnorm. Started by one of the Abnorm members, and involving the guitar player of “Der Verdacht” along with other, temporary collaborators, “Neros tanzende Elektropäpste” had a distincly more humorous flavour. To many in Aix-la-Chapelle, they were the uncrowned kings of the DaDa faction within the NDW. This tape double album presents a reissue of their complete(ly) hilarious and exuberant output from 1981-1983. The material was originally released in four installments by “Reinfall Tapes”:  rc011 – Wer schön sein will, muß leiden, rc015 – Portrait einer Legende, rc016 – Hamsterfunk aus der Landesanstalt, rc019 – Die hohe Kunst des Schwitzens. The cover is an original new collage by  Nero-mastermind ENK.

Ufos über Palästina (= UFOs over Palestine)

Double MC album.

The 90s “update” of Neros tanzende Elektropäpste: their two core members plus two synth and electronic buffs from Frankfurt, where all the material was recorded. Expect a more polished sound, produced with state-of-the-art synth hardware, combined with the same absurdist and DaDa spirit in their lyrics. Tongue-in cheek humor and sarcasm influenced by early 20th century German nonsense poetry in the vein of Morgenstern and Ringelnatz. Catchy melodies, lots of samples, the works… Currently our favourite. “UFOs über Palästina” contains a choice of their best songs from 1991-1995. For the very first time released here, in a tape double album with original art-work and some extras. This continues our series of Neros-related releases.
More is yet to come, gentle listener…
