Metabolist


1979/80 kamen viele merkwürdige Platten aus England, so zum Beispiel "Hansten Klork" von Metabolist. Um es kurz zu machen: klingt wie This Heat spielen Hard Rock oder so ähnlich. Hier ist alles, was ich von der Band besitze - das Stück "Chained" von der "International Compilation 1" könnt ihr hier herunterladen. Mehr über die Band könnt ihr hier lesen: "Metabolist: Goatmanauts, Drömm-heads and the Zuehl Axis". Und dann habe ich noch 2 Links zu diskografischen Angaben: hier und hier.

Summary: "Formed in January '77, Metabolist first came to my attention via a piece in Enovations. This occasionally interesting periodical unfortunately masquerades as a fanclubjournal for Eno. The sooner it turns into a source of information for exploratory musicians, the better. (...) Wisely, Metabolist have their own label, Dromm records, & claim to have been influenced by Can, Gong & Magma. I see also connections with This Heat & Public Image Ltd. There's an increasingly interesting use of noise & chaos in dance music these days. This snappy item was recorded at their studios in Charing Cross, & features Simon Millward bs, Mark Rowlatt drs, & the recently departed Anton Loach synth." This is what Morgan Fisher says about Metabolist in the liner notes of the Miniatures compilation. I think it describes the noise accurately except that I don't hear any traces of "dance music". Read more about the band here: "Metabolist: Goatmanauts, Drömm-heads and the Zuehl Axis". Get information about further releases here and here. And you can download the track "Chained" from the "International Compilation 1" here.
