about

Our first CD released as SOS 05 on "Save our sperms".

We like the title very much because it wasn't that difficult to make this album, you know : famous bands have difficulties to make their second album ... but not for us.

We also made 55 copies of a 12" sized box for our "s/tammtisch" fan club with lots of extras inside, including a 79:59 minutes bonus ambient CD with just one "song" called "Fakeadelic silence ( the forget-Lord-Magick's-version-mix )" that will be exclusive forever for that special release.

The big picture is the front cover and the back cover you can find where the info button for the first track is. Strange and funny haircuts !

And again ... Grohinga Well wrote :
s/t ( "same titel" ) is a duo of German record collectors ( Mr. Miller and Horse Badorties ) who create their own music at home on 4-track equipment and release it on their own Save Our Sperms Label ( great name ! ) housed in self-designed sleeves ( they're both professionally active in the graphic sector ). They started this cottage industry about three years ago and so far released four singles, three tapes and a 10" mini LP "Catatonic Airkraut". Last year this beautiful packaged vinyl release ( on the Texan Lone Starfighter label also known for the "I?" CD by Mynd Muzic ) drew our attention with its spaced-out Krautrock moves. Early seventies German psychedelic rock still determines most of the sound spectrum on this first full-length album ( eleven track / 68 minutes ) by s/t ...

The CD opens with "Animals", droning psychedelic rock of the Amon Düül II / Hawkwind-type. Next comes "Departure ( it's over )" with its organ play and electronics, like a cross between Gila and Cluster. "Autumn is coming" is stoned folk in the Tyrannosaurus Rex mould, and "It's hot" is heavy heavy space rock, right out of the sound system of a passing U.F.O., while "Beissen Sie in die Kaulquappe aus Wachs
( PS.8 )" ( which in translation boils down to "Bite the wax tadpole",
L. ) brngs more lysergic folk, this time with a background of early Kraftwerk electronics. "Kasim Müzik" unveils an elegant Arabic atmosphere with its ethnic vocalisation, wailing violin and moody guitar lines. "Corpses on my way" sounds like a psyched-out singer / songwriter exercise, preparing you for "The educator", a slice of American sixties psych with warped vocals and instrumentation. "Schnarch song ( Intro )" / "I can't sleep ( live from Villabajo )" generates an impressive amount of psychedelic vibes via its weird samples, backward tapes, howling guitars, spacy keyboards and alien vocals - a real tour de force. "Der Eiertanz" concludes this very rich CD with with its spacy, ambient soundscapes.

Conclusion :
s/t released a psychedelic killer album, a true piece of modern Krautrock made in the nineties with the spirit of the seventies. Same remark as with the "Catatonic Airkraut" mini LP :
stoned ideas always shine through. Mega-recommended.

about

s/t Frankfurt, Germany

Congratulations for finding this page : the wonderful little world of s/t. We think it's a brilliant name for a band but impossible to google ( try bandcamp search ). Horse Badorties and Mr. Miller are the members of s/t and they have released a lot of stuff over the years, and most of these releases you will find here in the near future ... when you come back ... hopefully. And now enjoy! ... more
