Vielversprechendes Debut dieses neuen Projektes mit ex NOISE-MAKER'S FIFES-Mitstreitern - minimal, dronig, instrumentell, kraftvoll, improvisiert!

"Van Luijk is also present in Onde, a new trio of himself, Marc Wroblewski and former Noise Makers Fifes member Greg Jacobs. The first record is called 'One', how appropriate, and is dedicated to Geert Feytons, the main man of Noise Makers Fifes who took his own life last year. On the back of the cover we see an image of them: one guy on an upright bass, one of the drums and one playing a saxophone. A jazz band? Four pieces on this record and it's certainly not really jazz. On side one we find the pieces 'Four' and 'One' and 'Three and 'Two' on the other. There is a strong difference between both sides. Side One is a wild, psychedelic noise affair, in which it seems that all three players have an endless variety of sound effects at their disposal, whereas on side two there is also improvised music, but without the wealth of sound effects but with the inclusion of electronic tape manipulations. Instruments can be recognized as such and there is much more detail to be heard. I thought this was a great record, both sides of the big black coin. The noise brings them to the common day rock noise improv drone of say Sunn 0))), whereas the other side is more traditional electro-acoustic improvisation. Here the adventure that could have been the Luijk/Vanderstraeten LP is present and makes a most promising debut." [FdW / Vital Weekly]

"With a press release that simply declares this as "sinister psych, semi-acoustic noise" and a photograph on the back of the LP with the band posturing with instruments in a crumpled shack out in the forest, this record was pretty much made for Aquarius. Onde is a project that has come out of Noise Maker's Fifes, a theatrically Neo- Dada ensemble in the same orbit as Nurse With Wound and HNAS. The best known member of these groups is Timo Von Luijk, who had recorded briefly in Mirror with Andrew Chalk & Christoph Heemann and more recently has continued on with Heemann as In Camera. Onde delivers with the sinister psych and semi-acoustic noise with four long form slabs of drone murk with one side being more of the dark, gloomy drone strategy, the other belonging to a monstrous heaviosity for
sheer noise. The mellower shadowy half recalls Taj Mahal Travellers meandering through electronics and instrumental flutter with bits of the impressionist atmospheres of Mirror and In Camera coming through. On the flip, Onde crash head forward into the acoustic noise
compaction of bowed metals, screeched steel strings, and growling amplifiers somewhere between Birchville Cat Motel, Organum, and
Sunroof! It's pretty awesome." [Aquarius Records]
