That's the guy!- made a fortune from the Rattles, bought an echo box, smoked a load of weed ,dropped some acid. went to some orgies, jammed with his mates, released a couple of undercover classic German Psychedelic ("krautrock" if you're racist ) albums, then totally disowned his past because he became Germany's equivalent of Tom Jones and didn't want to piss off the "straights" by acknowledging his druggy past.. but weirdly enough 45 years ahead of his time: he released an album of sea shanties in 1976...Was the guy out of Rattles wasn't it?
That's perhaps the least scary "hound" I have ever seen! But fantastic cover version - although checking on discogs and seeing the cheapest 7" is £55 then I might have to stick with the Sabs version..This always struck me as an unusual (but good) cover... though I imagined the dog that so terrified the Baskervilles as being a bit bigger somehow.
chowning could hear that Gesang Der Junglinge made manifest a previously impossible-to-describe space. but really ANY recording of sound has this quality - however we have, in our "civilised" manner, got used to fudging the fact intellectually.“Some of the music involved loudspeakers. Hearing what some of these composers were doing was life-changing — Karlheinz Stockhausen had a four-channel electronic piece involving [pre-recorded] boys’ voices. The spatial aspects caught my attention: that one could create, with loudspeakers, the illusion of a space that was not the real space in which we were listening.” John Chowning hearing Stockhausen in Paris at Le Domaine Musicale
yes.Perhaps there's a connection here with what Pynchon says about different air quality affecting the relative speed of sound within them.
He says lots of mist in the air has a direct effect on how sound is carried in that air, which directly effects our perceptions of reality.
Reverb and echo are probably magnified or dustirted even more when you add smoke or haze to the equation.
