PICKNICK MIT HERMANN!
Rhiz

The ultimate time-capsule relic of Austria's exceptional musical climate. 19 tracks, 19 acts, recorded live during a Viennese park festival in the summer of 1997. Styles vary radically. The 'difficult' artists are represented by Farmers Manual, Hecker, and Rehberg&Bauer's expectedly discombobulated electronics and by the exceedingly weird NWW-ish toyscapes of Bernd Oberlinninger and Helmut Heiland. Pausenfuller approach their electronics with a sunnier touch. In the absence of favorite sons Kruder & Dorfmeister, Bask and The Smiling Buddhas deputize for the quirky dance contingent. Curd Duca even lays the Wagner aside for a stab at electro-disco-sambafunk, leaving intermission-organ duties to Fritz Ostermayer. Fritz Fitzke's spastic voiceplay and hot buttered jazz add to a refreshingly overstuffed Hiphop truffle. Fennesz' beautiful sampled-guitar mistreatment steals another show. Epy and Dieb 13 hurl breakbeats like a deadly hail of shuriken. Lest you think Pomassl's devious anti-techno noise and the Danube-blue drones of Swamp Swallow, Franz Reisecker, Hecker, and Alois Huber's (very uncharacteristic) are the chosen face of Austrian electronic music, Musikkreis MS20 roll out a wonky Moogy-blues cover of "Summertime." it could have been the consummate "you had to be there..." moment. Instead it reveals the Austrians for the brainy party animals that they really are.

sonomu review:

19 tracks by 19 acts, recorded live during a Viennese park festival in the summer of 1997, is ultimately most valuable as a time-capsule relic of Austria's musical climate. 'Difficult' artists are represented, by both the expectedly discombobulated electronics of Farmers Manual, Hecker and Rehberg & Bauer's and by the exceedingly weird NWW-ish toyscapes of Bernd Oberlinninger and Helmut Heiland. Pausenfuller approach electronic music with a sunnier touch and, in the absence of favorite sons Kruder & Dorfmeister, Bask and The Smiling Buddhas deputize for the quirky dance contingent. Curd Duca provides a typically laconic synopsis of the electro-disco-sambafunk movement, leaving intermission-organ muzak duties to Fritz Ostermayer. Fritz Fitzke's spastic voiceplay and hot buttered jazz add to a refreshingly overstuffed Hiphop truffle. Fennesz' beautiful sampled-guitar mistreatment could bring tears to the eyes of the most stolid technophile. Epy and Dieb 13 hurl breakbeats like a deadly hail of shuriken. Lest you think Pomassl's devious anti-techno noise and the Danube-blue drones of Swamp Swallow, Franz Reisecker, Hecker, and Alois Huber's (somewhat uncharacteristic) are the chosen face of Austrian electronic music, Musikkreis MS20 roll out a wonky Moogy-blues cover of Mungo Jerry's "Summertime." It could have been the consummate "you had to be there..." moment. Instead it reveals the Austrians for the brainy party animals that they really are. Posted by gil gershman at 00:00, 03 Dec 1998
