Thank you Jerry, for your ongoing support!
Performed in their guises as Doctor Cosmonaut on vocals, guitars, bass and ko(s)mische bicycle, and Crazy Radu on keyboards, guitars and bass, The Munich Tapes “tells the half-mythical z-movie story of a dangerous meeting with men machines backstage of an underground club for Earthlings, and an air ride on a rusted limousine”.
I was first introduced to A.J.’s music through Sauer Adler, his duo project with Kacper Wojaczek. Their latest effort, an EP titled Wojaczekful of Kaufmann, has changed since I first received it. Wojaczek has left and A.J. now works with German musician Radu Rusanu…
“Selections that highlight the variety across these dozen songs include Dance Of The Rainbow Elephant, with its intense Van der Graaf Generator styled Doom-Prog and Psychedelic edge. Lucifer’s Herb is one of my favorite songs of the set, being a damn fine bit of 70s Hard Rock and Prog. Addiction has a Medieval-Folk feel, with male/female vocals, piano and orchestration. Megacity is a solid song that’s colored by swirling spaced out effects and alien synth melodies. Song For A Drummer features dreamy 60s inspired Psychedelia with a Prog infusion. Like A Child goes in a different direction, being a bouncy electro-pop tune, but with a Mellotron-ish backdrop. Summer Dreams is a classic 60s Sunshine-Pop dittie. Herba Gramen has an interesting combination of Prog and Pop-Psych. After a trippy intro, Hi Tech Inferno launches into one of the darkest and most intense Prog stompers of the set. And Distant Clusters is another one of my favorites, consisting of intense Prog-Psych with a drugged droney vibe, really good instrumentation and arrangements, and a tasty melodic fuzz guitar solo.” (Jerry Kranitz)
“Revelation may be a lo-fi living room affair, but Wojaczek and Kaufmann are doing a lot with a little, writing damn good songs and putting together impressive instrumental arrangements. Add a couple more musicians and give these guys some quality studio time and we might have a Prog-Psych powerhouse on our hands.”
