Elektro Guzzi

Eine "Techno-Tanzband" aus Wien, die elektronische Musik in komplett analoger Besetzung neu interpretiert. Hier jetzt der Titeltrack ihrer "Cashmere" EP!

Elektro Guzzi ├╝ber sich

Live performances of electronic music have gone a long way since the seminal decision of a few men from Düsseldorf to leave their Krautrock beginnings behind and to become machines. Since then, the list of successors is epic and technologically refined in the process: from the musicians who on stage incorporated electronics into their post punk aesthetics to today's laptop PAs blurring the lines between performance and DJ set in a club context. Of course the evolution of according concepts also proceeded in reverse, with electronic musicians implementing their sound into traditional band structures, and performing their music as modern interpretations of the latter, combining the sounds of the according analogue and digital equipment.

Taking all this into consideration, Elektro Guzzi from Vienna are none of the above, which is exactly why Macro didn't hesitate to sign them. Though their sound most certainly suggests that Bernhard Hammer, Jakob Schneidewind and Bernhard Breuer also decided to become machines, they strangely enough don't use any (it took several confirmations in mails and personal meetings and a rehearsal video to convince that they don't).

As digital as they may sound, they couldn't be more analogue, producing and performing with the most classic of all setups: bass, guitar, and drums. But however traditional they may look as a band, they certainly do not sound like one.

Der beat ist übrigens- bei aller kritik -o.k. uns ausbaufähig- sonst würde ich nicht kritisieren, wenn´s nicht gut wär. Es ist gut.

Leider kritik
da fehlt etwas. Ich vermute mal: Die Stimme. Ein bisschen Effekthascherei und irgendeinen i-point. Sorry. Aber instrumental ists zu langweilig. Gut ich bin 43 und hab vielleicht nicht den McDonalds-Drive. Mir ist´s zu simple. Kann aber sein, dass ich zu verwöhnt bin mit meinem tyros von yamaha. Ein paar Effekte und ein bisschen Stimme würde das ganze durchaus passabel machen.
