More Info

Das Bremer Label DIE STADT startet eine Wiederveröffentlichungs-Serie von nicht mehr erhältlichen TIETCHENS-Scheiben – hier der Anfang mit der allerersten LP ‚Nachtstücke’ von 1980, die noch Früh-Achtziger Charme aufweist, dazu schier unglaubliches Material aus den Sechzigern auf der zweiten CD !!

“First in a series of 18 CD's aiming to make available all early vinyl albums by ASMUS TIETCHENS between 1980 - 1991 on CD. Each release feat. the original tracks (sometimes extended / original versions) + unreleased bonus tracks from the same recording period, original artwork + accompanying texts by TIETCHENS. This - the only 2CD in the series - feat. his very first album 'Nachtstücke' from 1980 (incl. 4 bonus tracks) + a 2nd CD with archive material recorded with his long time friend Okko Bekker between 1965-1969.
These are the first works in TIETCHENS long career as a sound artist and were never released before. Edition of 1000 copies in jewelcase with full color poster booklet.
About the artist: ASMUS TIETCHENS started recording music as early as 1965 (documented here on 'Adventures In Sound') though his first release only appeared 15 years later ('Nachtstücke'). Ever since then he stayed very productive and had numerous cassette, vinyl and CD releases on numerous labels (Sky, United Dairies, Dom, Staalplaat, Ritornell and Die Stadt to name just a few). He has collaborated with various other like minded artists such as Okko Bekker, Cluster, Conny Plank, Terry Burrows, Liquidski, David Lee Myers (Arcane Device) and most recently with Thomas Köner who is one half of their ongoing collaborational project KONTAKT DER JÜNGLINGE (who so far released 3 CD's DS34/DS39/DS48 on Die Stadt).” [press release]
