Released 2016 on Treue um Treue: "JE NE SUIS PAS LÀ, JE NE SUIS PAS MORT"
C42 professional Chrome Plus tape - silk-screened gold on transparent blue shell - 4-panel J-card - in norelco case - lim. ed. of 100 hand-numbered copies
"After the excellent "Paradies" CD out last year on Zoharum, our favorite lamenting troubadour is back on reel with the grooviest and also saddest NIEDOWIERZANIE album to date. On "Je ne suis pas là, je ne suis pas mort" ( "I'm not here, I'm not dead") the sun drenched mal de vivre, the mediterranean despair and bohemian misery reaches unchartered heights, inviting the listener to joyfully swing along over the debris of a mislead existence. Punchy rhythm machines and swag synth basslines collide with washed out mandoline chords and swirling accordion, urban modernity encounters folklore, east meets west & This is where all antagonisms join in the cheery carousel of exasperation."

Triste Chronique D'un Désastre Annoncé
ALSO RELEASED IN 2016:
monster tape is a testimony of the mythical
mongo tour which united MUSHROOM'S
PATIENCE, DIAMANTENER OBERHOF,
NIEDOWIERZANIE and TZII on the
sinister road between Brussels, Mulhouse,
Mainz and Würzburg. Those are not live
recordings, but studio tracks made specially
for this release. Mushroom's Patience is a
cult experimental / surreal band from Roma
formed in the early 80's. Diamantener
Oberhof is the duo of Johannes Schebler (of
Baldruin) and Christian Schoppik (of
Brannten Schnüre) Niedowierzanie is a
pathetic lament, originally from Marseille.
Tzii, hailing from Brussels, has been
spreading his cinematic, dark and weird
music over the world since 1996. Expect
nothing but surreal obsessions, bizarre
folk, brainless mongo pop or dark cabaret
musick. This tape is limited to 77 copies,
with an artwork designed by Christian
Schoppik and Johannes Schebler."
SWESOR BHRATER & BRANNTEN SCHNÜRE
"Swesor Bhrater is a mysterious act, the personnal project of V-Y, also a
member of BRUTA NON CALCULANT, playing an enigmatic mix of folk, cold
electronic music and haunting experimentations. SB just released its
first album on Hieratique Records, and previously appeared on the
Minnesang compilations (Octroi Records). Brannten Schnüre is an
experimental dark folk group out of Würzburg, Germany. Christian plays
the accordeon and in some songs guitar and flute. Inspired by
hierophants like Novy Svet and David Jackman, solemn song fragments (a
lot of old greek rembetiko-recordings) are modified and looped, with
additional instruments and voices being integrated later on. His music
has been described as "surreal folkcollage" and "German hauntology".
This split-tape limited to 77 copies presents exclusive tracks and a
painted artwork by Christian Schoppik."
