Label: Garden Of Delights
素晴らし過ぎる音楽性！！ NWWリストファンはお見逃しなく！！ 多くの名盤を高品質の復刻で手掛けているGarden Of Delightsのとんでもない発掘モノ。Peter Gigerを軸に3人のスイスのドラマーのプロジェクトとしてスタート、70年代の始め頃に短い期間だけ動いていたフリー系のアヴァンユニットDrum Circus。録音自体は71年の作品で、ドロドロに入り組んだ完全アヴァンな構築から、土着的な泥臭い要素、フリージャズと、兎に角この音楽性は一度体験頂きたい強烈でクールな世界観。分厚いブックレット付き。
Founder and leader of Drum Circus from Switzerland has been the master drummer Peter Giger. “A giant on drums”, as the newspaper “Rhein-Main-Zeitung” called him. He was joined, among others, by two additional drummers, as well as by Joel Vandroogenbroeck and Carole Muriel, both from Brainticket. Therefore, it’s not surprising that “Magic theatre”, with its LSD-dripping lyrics (partly written by Timothy Leary, partly influenced by “The Tibetan book of the dead”), reminds sometimes forcefully of the early Brainticket. “Magic theatre” was recorded in the excellent studio of Horst Jankowski in Stuttgart. Yet, it remained unreleased, then. Shortly before his death, Horst Jankowski gave the tapes to Peter Giger. The front cover shows Peter Giger on drums and Joel Vandroogenbroeck.
