Kontrast - Kontrast 1 'Ex-Out of Focus Band' (1980 German Prog Psych)

KONTRAST ERA UMA ÓTIMA BANDA ALEMÃ QUE NA VERDADE ERA FORMADA POR EX-INTEGRANTES DA BANDA "OUT OF FOCUS" QUE SE JUNTARAM ANOS DEPOIS DE TEREM SE SEPARADO!! UMA RARIDADE DOS ANOS 80, CUJO ALBUM TEM UMA SONORIDADE KRAUTROCK FUSION, ALGUM EXPERIMENTALISMO E JAZZ ROCK!! VENENO RARÍSSIMO E RECOMENDADO!!“Um dos mais surpreendentes ou inesperado Krautrock, tendo em vista a data de lançamento bem nos anos 80, Kontrast está bem na linha musical dop que faziam as bandas Embryo, Xohl, Annexus Quam ou Dzyann e Out Of Focus. Aliás, Kontrast está intimamente ligado com a Out Of Focus, uma vez que três dos seus membros estão envolvidos neste projeto: o guitarrista Remigius Drechsler, que é o principal homem por trás deste projeto, o saxman Ingo Schmid-Neuhaus e o tecladista, vocalista e flautista Moran Neumüller. É difícil imaginar que ouviríamos uma faixa de 25 minutos nos anos 80, longas suítes musicais, incluindo ruídos de tráfego, solos alongados e aquele sentimento étnico e psicodélico, ao mesmo tempo e ainda nos anos 80. A faixa de 12 minutos chamada de Trip é uma musica solo de Drechsler, onde ele toca todos os instrumentos e, a grosso modo, estamos novamente no mesmo campo étnico-psych da banda Embryo, cheio de guitarras acústicas, vibrafones e telefone tocando. Ainda mais estranho é o 8 minutos Opus Dope-Us, com a dissonância de sax e guitarra, batidas de porta, etc.”
A rarity of 1980's Krautrock, Kontrast saw ex-Out Of Focus members: Remigius Drechsler, Ingo Schmid-Neuhaus and Moran Neumüller, working together again after having been apart for several years.

Kontrast biographyA rarity of 1980's Krautrock, Kontrast saw ex-Out Of Focus members: Remigius Drechsler, Ingo Schmid-Neuhaus and Moran Neumüller, working together again after having been apart for several years. Out Of Focus main-man Remigius Drechsler had been with Embryo on and off for a couple of years prior to this, and actually Kontrast was his project and not a proper band as such. In fact, one track is Remigius entirely solo, with the aid of some nifty multi-tracking! Most of the album, however, is pretty much live rockin' fusion stepping on from the second disc of Out Of Focus' FOUR LETTER MONDAY AFTERNOON, as a refined and complex fusion, deep groove music that rattles along magnificently, characteristic of the Munich scene, with the edge on solo upon solo, experimentation and weirdness.

Though little-known, 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! (Cosmic Egg site).
