MuhMur Radio Broadcast 29 March 2018.
The great thing about British Summer Time is the lighter nights ... the later days, it means that I can walk along the River Dart for 2 miles from Totnes to the SoundArt Radio studios at Darlington Hall. A great walk to let the mind wander free and think about all those things I am going to say during the broadcast and then never do. Hot DJ chat that never makes it to air!
This broadcast features new sounds from German project Ditterich Von Euler-Donnersperg. D v. E-D is the work of Hamburg based artist / film-maker / politician Uli Rehberg. Before beginning this project Uli operated the Walter Ulbricht Schallfolien label releasing the likes of Throbbing Gristle, Laibach, The Hafler Trio and S.P.K. In 1986 Uli began the Werkbund project, a project surrounded in mystery and anonymity. in 1989 Abraum was set up as a label to release the works of Werkbund and associated artist Mechthild Von Leusch.
Ditterich Von Euler-Donnersperg began releasing in the late 1990's. I first came across his work via the singles released on the Bremen based label Die Stadt, then the collaborative releases with Column One. For MuhMur Radio Ditterich Von Euler-Donnersperg has submitted seven short pieces subtitled "Moviesoundtracks (of course) For Undone Movies". Each came with the name DDBE although I think this was just for filing purposes. I have listed them under their filed name. (If this makes sense), and play them in the order they were sent. Also included are tracks from compilation albums, collaborative work with Thorsten Soltau and a piece from the split 2x7" (with Asmus Tietchens, Thomas Köner and Illusion Of Safety) on Die Stadt.
In 2015 Ditterich Von Euler-Donnersperg formed the Neo-Communist party KED. The party made the film "Victory Of Reason". A trailer for the film is available via YouTube. The film references Leifenstahl's 'Victory Of Belief' as well as Hegel's hypothesis that world history repeats itself as a 'lousy farce'.
So, also in the broadcast are tracks by Throbbing Gristle, S.P.K. and Laibach. Throbbing Gristle's "Journey Through A Body" was the first release on Walter Ulbricht Schallfolien in 1983. It is a recording of Throbbing Gristle's last studio recordings for an Italian radio station. S.P.K.'s "Auto Da-Fe" is a collection of their first 3 singles and three new pieces released (also) in 1983. The Laibach release is called "Rekapitulacija 1980-1984". Originally released in 1985 as a double LP I have the CD edition of 1989.
Also in the broadcast; Modelbau and two tracks from the recent "Xerox" album. This LP is limited to 25, another limited edition release is the Wagner Ödegärd 12" lathe cut "Skugg-Hasse" on Nazio Records. This is limited to 30 copies. The Modelbau LP is still available from the label here : http://www.des-astres-dor.com/category/1/modelbau-frans-de-waard/
The Colin Potter track comes from the brilliant "The Abominable Slowman" LP, more of which in the coming broadcasts! The Crass track is the single sided 7" flexidisc that came free with the fanzine "Toxic Graffity" and was release 'On This Day' in 1980.
