"Since their formation in Zurich in 1978, the Welttraumforscher's music has been moving to and fro in a field marked by the cornerstones of the classic pop song as epitomised by Burt Bacharach or Simon and Garfunkel, the emotional barrenness of Nick Drake's compositions, the escapism of Syd Barrett and electronic homerecording-miniatures of cinematic dimensions as [co-]developed by Der Plan and Cabaret Voltaire. '21 Weltraum-Standards' does not lay claim to being a representative cross-section of the band's output over the last 25 years; the intention of this compilation is more one of presenting the Welttraumforscher from their friendliest and more accessible side. The second CD includes the album '..remixen die Welttraumforscher', formerly released as a vinyl-only on Felix Kubin's label Gagarin Records and which has long sold out. This album contains remixes by Mouse on Mars, Barbara Morgenstern, FX Randomiz, Neoangin, Schlammpeitziger, Minitchev, Nova Huta, Harald "Sack" Ziegler, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Joe Tabu and Klangwart. As a bonus the CD is augmented by two most charming (but then what of the Welttraumforscher's output could defy that adjective?) and hitherto unreleased videos of the band." (label info)
