One From the Vaults: Roman Bunka


















As I promised two week's ago, here is the answer to the latest Plain Brown Wrappers: Tomrerclaus- En Spade Er En Spade. No-head decided not to ruin it for the rest of the readers, but it turned out that no one else even ventured a guess this time around. Anyway, En Spade Er En Spade was a towering achievement for this phenomenally talented guitarist from Denmark who played nearly all of the instruments on the record himself. As far as I know, this record is way out of print, so I hope that you enjoyed it.



















Today, I am introducing a new series to Eclectic Grooves called One From the Vaults. This series will showcase out-of print and extremely hard to find records that have generally been slept on by the general public. I figured that this record by German kraut-psych masters Roman Bunka would be a perfect album to introduce this series to you. All I really need to say about Dein Kopf ist ein schlafendes Auto is that it transcends genre tags, throwing every imaginable musical style into a mixing bowl until it overflows into a bottomless ocean of creative ideas. I would love to hear what you guys think of this record.

R.I.Y.L. Frank Zappa, Can, Pere Ubu, Hamza El Din

Hi Kevin,
I just stumbled across your site through totally fuzzy. I downloaded Roman Bunka on a whim (I tend to like obscure and "music on the edge" as it were). I just wanted to say that I am enjoying this very much and thank you very much for sharing.

I know blogging can be a thankless and time consuming task so I thought I'd just pass on my appreciation. I am downloading a few other gems from your site as well.

Thanks again and best wishes from Canada.

Andy

Hey, this is pretty good! Like the eastern influences. Not the usual Krautrock fare at all. Thanks again.

BTW Grass Widow are here next month. I'll check them out.
