Günter Schickert presents a release concert for his brand new album “Nachtfalter” on Bureau B. Schickert will be accompanied by Andreas Spechtl and supported by Tatiana Heuman, so its sure to be an excellent Friday night at Acud.
Released on the legendary label ‘Brain’, Günter Schickert’s debut Samtvogel (1975) was one of the most significant guitar albums of the Krautrock era. Points of comparison from today’s perspective are Syd Barrett or Pink Floyd’s more adventurous early recordings. Schickert’s follow-up Überfällig of 1980 was released on the equally legendary ‘Sky’ label. Once again a milestone recording, it showcased Schickert’s hypnotic echo guitar which developed into one of the hallmarks of the Krautrock sound.
Schickert’s new album Nachtfalter, translating as ‘moth’ in English, carries on from these beginnings, making it hard to believe that he has in the meantime reached pension age. Recorded during the scorching hot summer of 2018, Nachtfalter shows the pioneer of the echo guitar sound his very best. Here Schickert was assisted by Andreas Spechtl (‘Ja, Panik’) who recorded the album and played the drums. They form a truly winning team: Spechtl selected the best moments of Schickert’s guitar tracks, mixed them while also supplying some own loops.
Tatiana Heuman’s debut album ‘QEEI’ is a multi-layered collection of deconstructed pop songs marked by stuttering percussion, chaotic microsamples, and infectious vocal melodies. Each song is a different “preacher.” ‘QEEI’ formulates a pop music mangled and contorted to give voice to ‘contemporary witches.’
