Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Strategies Against Architecture is an overview of the first 10 years of Einsturzende Neubaten. By the end of their first decade, the pneumatic drills and hammers of this Berlin band (aka Collapsing New Buildings) had become part of a more traditionally musical whole. They reined in the avant garde industrial punk (no more drilling through stages at London's ICA) to create actual tunes and melodies. Since 1991, their sound has been less raw, but just as playful. They may be acquired taste, but Neubaten have always energised European punk with their iconoclastic viewpoint. This beautifully packaged double CD includes a track jammed with mobile phone interference, Blixa Bargeld singing on helium and "Wuste", a dramatic piece inspired by the Gulf War where string-laden melody is overlaid with sounds of sand, rubble and burning oil. There's also evocative music done for Montreal dance troupe La La Human Steps and previously unreleased tracks from 2000's Silence Is Sexy. Most memorable of all is "The Garden", an eerily resonant interlude in this compelling retrospective. --Lucy OBrien

Format: Audio CD
Here is the third volume of Neubauten's 'Strategies Against Architecture'- here in a wonderful two-disc set (replete with a great collage of photo's and notes on the tracks contained)...It takes in the years from 1991 to 2001- from EN's move from Some Bizarre to Mute, taking in line-up changes and a progression in songs & sound...The first I heard of Blixa Bargeld was his vocal/guitar noise on THe Birthday Party's 'Mutiny In Heaven', after that the sounds on 'From Her To Eternity'lead me to 'Haus der Luge'...Since the early-90's EN have changed, they don't (always) merely bash metallic objects and drill through floorboards...Three tracks from the 'Interim'-e.p. are found here: the electronic buzz of '12305te Nacht', the ambient-semi-acapella (with hints of metal)'Salamandrina' (which stemmed from 'Snake', also here) and the epic-'Die Interimsliebenden' (which sadly omits its 'Rausch'-intro). This set is worth purchasing for these tracks alone...To make this a worthy purchase for fans, EN have included rarities and alternate-versions where possible. Thus 'Sabrina' is captured in an earlier 'Rampe'-improvisation as 'I Wish This Would Be Your Colour'. There are some great live-takes: 'Redukt', 'Alles Was Irgendwie Nutzst', 'Ende Neu'. There are some songs in other languages other than German (some in nonsense). There are some ambient-forays which would please electronica-heads who like AFX, Autechre & Squarepusher (Rephlex & Warp then...)'Zentrifuge', 'Bili Rubin' and 'Architktur ist Geiselnahme' (from the soundtrack to 'Berlin Babylon') are all fine-examples of this...There are songs from their ballet-collaborations with La La La Human Steps (who also worked with Bowie): 'Wuste' being one-such. There are art-exhibition pieces ('The Empty Room') and experiments ('Installation # 1').Read more ›

The 2 CDs in this set span three 'proper' albums: the opulent Tabula Rasa (1991), the somewhat patchy Ende Neu (1996) and the radiant Silence is Sexy (2000), plus soundtrack and theatrical work. Although there are a handful of previously released landmark tracks here, the 20 other pieces are new, obscure or different from the originals. The great clattering momentum that EN became so expert at conjuring in the 80s is still present on a few tracks (Redukt, Ende Neu), but the set is dominated by more delicate, quietly beautiful songs (The Garden, Blume, Silence is Sexy, an embryonic I Wish I Could be Your Colour). Whether it's ferocity or fragility that EN are exploring, they never seem to lose their inquisitiveness, their sense of humour or their genius for weaving chaos into breathtaking aural structures.

Let's face it, this is unlikely to be a purchase for anyone other than existing EN fans, and for them I would whole heartedly recommend it. It saves having to track down obscure EPs if you dont already have them , such as 'Interimsliebenden' and 'Malediction', and has some great examples of how some tracks developed, such as 'Snake' for 'Salamandrina','I wish this would be your colour' for 'Sabrina' and 'Alles'. It has some great trancey bits, 'Open Fire', and some abstractions, 'Centrifuge'.There are a couple of surprisingly tight live performances of 'Ende Neu' and 'Redukt', and if you like EN's more recent work you are bound to just love it. If you've never heard any of their stuff before, start with 'Silence is Sexy' instead.

A shimmering sparkle of an album composed primarily of out takes and rarieties. All part of an ongoing series of releases stretching over each epoch. Whilst readily aimed at people already immersed in the New Buildings culture these also manage to break free from the architectural restraints to bring the message to new converts.

In the mid period the volcanic anger has cooled, simmmering enough for new emotional shapes to emerge. Beaten in the post industrial forges then cooled in the waters of city rivers this is the works as the anger subsides withoug melting into formations of megacorp tack. Unfortunately this more direct route was chosen by many contemporaries to limited success. This however reveals an all out pouring of imaginary streams. The crux to Neubauten is the beauty of the artistic product of the collective minds.

The breadth and scope of the industrial connections traverse the delicate brush strokes of Blume sung in French to the Zentrifuge electrical sturm. 28 compositions with only 8 readily available you would have to be the true fantical to have captured all these on their original releases. Here you can sit back and listen to them unfold over 2 hours.

The music is grand smashes of planets breaking open their nucleui in Swiss laboratories contrasting with the delicate plucking of the
heart strings as a detuned slide brings forth Biblical locusts. A mixture of delicate relaxation and headrush charges into red brick sooted walls, all culled from 91 until 01.

The ringing sounds of Wotan and Donar transplanted into a 21st century Bauhaus apartment. Highlights of Germanic culture dancing in ice bound woods, praying to the trees, painted in lurid colours whilst an industrial rhythm sways the frenzy. The rhythms of plastic containers molded into tribal bangs.
