Label: Garden Of Delights
NWWリスト。結成当初はドラッギーでドロドロな実験アンサンブルに始まり、後期に行くにつれ徐々にジャズ、ロックを色を強めていったMissus Beastly。Embryo、Ton Steine Scherben等、幾つかのバンドが協力して立ち上げたドイツのインディペンデンドレーベルAprilのカタログ001として出版された76年3rd [Dr. Aftershave And The Mixed Pickles ]。多くのゲストを招いて録音された際どい即興要素とゆるい脱力感を同時に兼ね備えた名作。ボーナスを2曲追加、分厚いブックレットが付属するGarden Of Delightsによる良質リイシュー版。
First released in 1976 as the third LP by Missus Beastly. With very few vocals and a strong jazz touch. The bonus tracks were recorded on the Vlotho festivals 1976 and 1977.
“Dr. Aftershave and the mixed-pickles” (April 00001) was Missus Beastly’s third album, which once more presented some solid jazz rock, mostly instrumental. It was at the same time the first album to be released on April, the new self-distributing label run by Missus Beastly, Ton Steine Scherben, Embryo, and Sparifankal. The LP was recorded in the well-known Stuttgart Zuckerfabrik studio (a former sugar refinery) at the beginning of 1976. The two CD bonus tracks were recorded at the Vlotho festivals (“Umsonst und draußen” [outside and for free]) 1976 and 1977. At that time, they were presented on the annual festival LPs. “Dr. Aftershave” was actually planned to be released on CD years ago, but some unexpected obstacles caused a long delay. The fourth and last Missus Beastly LP, “Space guerilla” from 1978, will soon be released on CD, again provided with bonus tracks.
