More Info

Maiden vinyl voyage for ZFs spaced-out 1991 release, spliced from recordings made in Austria the year before, and originally issued on their Charrm label, now as part of Vinyl-On-Demands comprehensive reissue programme.

For the performances at Szene Wien, Austria, 9 and 10 November 1990 as part of the 'Ohrenschrauben' festival, Zoviet France were Andy Eardley with co-founders Ben Ponton and Robin Storey. The CDs original 64 piece has been cut in two to fit vinyl, and features elements of both shows woven into a deeply seductive, oneiric gauze, drifting from steepled reverbs and a sort of stately Viennese feel to stranger and disorienting cascades of pounding drum loops, etheric voices and psychedelic wheeze swept up in their singular, dub-like FX matrix.




"One long, slowly-unfolding live track, Vienna 1990, originally released as a CD-R, is a single disc-length improvisation which explores the outer limits of ominous minimalism. These recordings are taken from two performances at Szene Wien, Austria, 9 and 10 November 1990 as part of the 'Ohrenschrauben' festival." [Soundohm]
