☼ Aufgehoben – Axiologue / Thermidor One Five 7'' Picture Disc

"If you know what Francis Bacon did to Velazquez's portrait of Pope Innocent X, then you'll have some idea of what Aufgehoben are doing to rock music." (Peter Marsh, BBC Experimental Reviews)
Aufgehoben intrigues listeners by melding noise and free jazz, playing them against somewhat of a free rock background by processing those elements into distinct, organic pieces. Electric guitar, electronics and two drum kits are assembled, ripped apart, layered, time-coded and reconstituted so that instrumental passages surge into noise breaks and run out on a cymbal crash, that guitar strings are amplified until they play like wet towels being wrung out, where volume is just as key to the whole package as performance.
Limited to 524 pieces.

Release Year(s): 2007
Artist(s) Country: UK
Label(s): White Denim

Track Listing:
01. Axiologue (3:50)
02. Thermidor One Five (4:06)
