'Nichts Für Nitsch'? That reeks of The New Blockaders, I would think, but it is not; The New
Movement, a duo of Kenny Johansson and Tony Eriksson are however strongly inspired by the
Blockaders, as I read on Discogs: "Inspired by anti-'artists' like Marcel Duchamp, Luigi Russolo
and The New Blockaders the group emerged from the intention to create a new form of anti-art
with a nostalgic feeling but soon moved further into the 'philosophy of nothing' and they wrote
the manifesto 'X' even before they ever recorded something in the name of The New Movement.
With their manifesto TNM 'stand their ground' to reject and destroy everything for their
'philosophy of nothing' and to be pointless as their weapon of choice", which reads to me like
something them Blockaders could have also written. KH12 Quartet is also a duo, Matthias Horn
(also the label boss here) and Phillip Zimmermann and in Sweden the four of them recorded this
tribute to Hermann Nitsch, the infamous Austrian performance artist, with whom I have absolutely
nothing at all. I could launch into a diatribe about performance art, but I will save that for another
day. Like I wrote last week about the Blockaders I like a bit of noise, and this is what we get here,
as not just the manifesto is copied also their approach to sound is surely a strong source of
inspiration. Acoustic objects are hand cranked in front of a microphone and then fed through a
bunch of sound effects, while the original bursts of acoustics remain intact. In fact more here
than on the latest Blockaders cassette, I would think. No doubt the musicians cringe over me
saying this, but it seems to me some thought went into producing these noise pieces, of cracking
acoustic objects, loops of metallic rumble and spacing out distortion over the pieces itself. I am
not sure, but surely this is music that mister Nitsch would like as a backdrop to his performances
as it sounds like the sound of destruction and decay. Me personally, I don't need the performance
aspect at all; not even the 'blood' spattered picture disc; the noise that is captured in these
grooves is more than enough for me. Stick to what you best and leave out the rest I would say.
A bit short this LP, it seems, but quite lovely all around.'
