"The second release in the "Spielwiese" ("playground") series, brought into existence by Klangbad, demonstrates the unusual case of a group of distinctively individualistic individuals who have succeeded - as collective - in recording a conclusive, unperturbed and powerful album of exceptional style. The name of the band project is made up of the initials of their names. B.I.L.L. are: Clive Bell - undogmatic world musician and recognized authority and virtuoso on the shakuhachi, the ney, and other flutes and chengs - especially those from Arabian-Asiatic regions. Hans Joachim Irmler - a krautrock and electronic-music pioneer (as a founding member of Faust); an audio extremist who creates atonally whirring streaks of sound made from landscapes of organs, humorous melody and harmonized drones of a physical nature. Jaki Liebezeit - forty years ago he gained international recognition as drummer of Can. And even today he remains a self-renewing and innovative percussionist. Bass drum and hi-hat haven't belonged to his kit for many a moon. Robert Lippok - a man in his mid-forties, who may be out-gunned year-wise by his three team-mates, but certainly in no other respects. Since 1995, he's been the guitar player and in-house expert on electronics for To Rococo Rot. His specialities are loops and microscopically precise textures." (label info) Silkscreened Cover, incl. full album on CD. Limited to 1000 copies.
