Budi Siebert ''Hmm...'' (1983) (Vinyl Rip)

Budi Siebert ''Hmm...'' (1983)

Although Budi had been on the scene for more than twenty years, it was only in 1983 when he was working with Andreas Vollenweider that a large audience became aware of him. He recorded two albums with Andreas and played more than two hundred concerts with the Vollenweider-Band. Before that he had been working with various jazz-rock outfits and produced several german bands, noteably BAP, who have since become one of Germany’s biggest rock-acts.
After his studies of saxophone, flute and composition at the Stuttgart Academy of Music in the seventies, Budi developed a strong interest in the cultures and music of the third world, and learned to play many strange and exotic instruments.
Budi’s irrepressable and unpredictable style, and the sophisticated and richly textured musical contours represent his respect and deep appreciation for life and nature.

    Review by Matt Fink
    Probably as good an album as Chesnutt has made, Is the Actor Happy? verifies his standing as one of the most relevant songwriters of the '90s. Pristine production that insures that not a note is wasted or out of place, it provides the perfect vehicle for Chesnutt's slice-of-life short stories. At times more accessible than the average Chesnutt record with instantly engaging tracks like "Gravity of the Situation," "Onion Soup" and "Guilty By Association" (featuring Michael Stipe), it is still not by any means a light-hearted affair. The album is a beautiful testament to Chesnutt's unique voice and the adversity that he's been through. Heartbreakingly delicate folk rock arrangements are followed by crashing guitar crescendos as the perfect vehicles for taking Chesnutt's songs to places very few songwriters have been or can go.

    Humppazoid notes
    This guy might be intersting for everyone who like songwriters (like Michael Penn, Aimee Mann up to Eels, Lisa Germano and Calexico). I think he is more popular in Europe than in USA. I would like to thanks one of ICOHTEC member from East Berlin for ''Silver Lake'' album and Ron from Aschaffeburg who picked up this album for me.

    F.S.K. meets Antony ''Shake'' Shakir "First Take Then Shake" CD

    F.S.K. meets Antony ''Shake'' Shakir "First Take Then Shake" CD
    Release: March 2004

    „First Take Then Shake" is the 11th studio album of F.S.K. In the more than 20 years of their existence F.S.K. (still Thomas Meinecke, Michaela Melian, Justin Hoffmann, Wilfried Petzi and Carl Oesterhelt) have travelled an uncompared musical journey from new wave to country and since their 1996 disko B 12'' "4 Instrumentals" (db61) and the two albums "Tel Aviv" (1998) and "X" (2000) on Sub Up Records deeper and deeper into band-oriented electronic music and its repetitive sound-structures between post-rock and post-electronica.
    F.S.K. were the most invited non-english band to attend Peel-sessions and are one of the few german bands besides Can who were granted an entry in a book called the „Unknown Legends of Rock'N'Roll".
    In February 2003 they went to Uphon Studio/Weilheim with engineer Mario Thaler (The Notwist, Tied + Tickled Trio) for the fourth time and recorded their new album with one half of the tracks being instrumentals and the other half (again) songs with lyrics. The roughmixes of these songs were sent to the Detroit-based afro-american techno/house legend Anthony "Shake" Shakir. F.S.K goes afro-germanic. In september Shakir flew to Munich with his sampler and one more week was spend together with the band in Weilheim producing "First Take Then Shake". A band Photograph was shot in front of the legendary BMW building: motor cities united. The first praise of this unusual cooperation already appeared in the most important german music magazines months before the album's release.
    "First Take Then Shake" is the first full length album of F.S.K. on disko B
    The artwork for the design of the album was realized by the german artist Olaf Nicolai. The portraits that were used for the cover are part of the series "The Blondes" (2003/2004).
