    Kontrast - a Kraut fusion weird thing...
    See the LP entry for a review/history of this!
    ...Kontrast deserve their growing reputation as one of the finest examples of 1980's Krautrock alongside Embryo's "Zack Gluck". When word spread around that we were down to the last few copies of the LP a year or so back, the price of an original spiralled, and £50 is a conservative bet as to what it's worth today! But, who wants the LP when you can have this? With half an hour's extra material, all up to the same quality, and with many surprises, not least in that Remi has sewn the whole thing together with revised themes, making it all work as if In all, it's a 77½ minute conceptual opus. What's more, Remi has done an extraordinary mastering job. In all, it's must-have for fans of Krautrock fusion, experimental jazz-rock-world musics, or whatever you call it! Also, it's a 500 copy first edition, with a 16 page booklet and snazzy disc!
