Klaus Bloch

Real Name:
Klaus Bloch
From 'The Crack in the Cosmic Egg' by Steven Freeman & Alan Freeman:

"Hiding behind the moniker of 'A La Ping Pong', Klaus Bloch was a talented amateur guitarist who broke on to the independent scene in a small way in the early '80s. Apart from being the project name, the 'A La Ping Pong' phrase was what he called his tape delay system, which was in essence his variation on the Frippertronic system. Klaus Bloch went on to make two very different albums. The first [Phase I] featured a highly inventive music featuring more recognisably 'Frippertronic' style guitar looping and delays, with multi-tracking and electronics, often comparable to Manuel Göttsching's echo and delay guitar work, early Heldon, or Camera Obscura. Then, in contrast, Phase II took a diversion to Kraftwerk styled electro-pop blending with Frippian touches"

After an extended recording hiatus, Klaus Bloch resurfaced with the 'Gnomania' LP, recorded in 1999.
