Runzelstirn & Gurgelstøck‎ - d) Würm? …Und Innen Sind Sie Wurmstichig (Recordings 1988 - 1990)




C50 released on Paul Coates' Hypnagogia label in 1991.

As you will have gathered, Runzelstirn & Gurgelstøck is an alternate persona of Rudolf Eb.er. He is the (hypothetical) godfather of the Swiss Illuminati who's raison d'être is to teach us that we hear everything in a wrong fashion. Words completely defy me...abstract and concrète, dada and blah blah. I would not be at all surprised to learn that Rudolv is actually an alien being left amongst us to educate us on where we went wrong as a species...

Although this Runzelstirn & Gurgelstøck‎ work is getting on for a quarter of a century old (which is a scary thought) he is still extremely active and more recent works are available on his bandcamp page. I also utterly recommend that you attend to Daniel Löwenbrück's Tochnit Aleph label/shopfront, where you will always find Mr Eb.er's physical work first as well as a thousand other delights!

In passing, Paul Coates is also a member of The New Blockaders on occasion. He hand-delivered my Viva Negativa vinyl boxsets years ago before he took a journey to India. He totally didn't need to do that. He just wanted to make sure they got to me in perfect condition and save me a few quid in postage. He stood at my front door with the boxsets in Tesco shopping bags and left me with a complete "fuck me, did that really just happen?" moment. I used to speak with him on a fairly frequent basis and he is a thoroughly decent human.

Würm?

Thanks a lot for posting this and the other R&G. Superlative stuff, in my opinion. Eb.er does the scary and creepy like no one else.

Also, sorry to hear about your loss. Hopefully another will find you.
