Recorded on 22.April 1979 at the Von-der-Heydt-Museum, Wuppertal, Germany

Searching the internet I found the following: 7. Wuppertaler Free Jazz Workshop 19.- 22.4.79 (Flyer)
And also that Peter Kowald was responsible for the realisation of museum concerts at the Von der Heydt Museum Wuppertal 1972-75 and Wuppertaler Free Jazz Workshop 1973-82.

Thanks to glmlr for help concerning the date of recording.

Dear Brian - this is not stolen! I have seeded this recording on DIME already three years and five days ago!
And I got from a friend already in 2009.
So maybe you got it from DIME or someone who took it from there.
AND - BTW I've typed the text with my hands without yours as template.

In the end these recordings does NOT belong to us - nuff said.

Onx, I would think the explanation for the minor discrepancy in the date is that the concert began in the evening of 22 April and continued past midnight into 23 April. A regularly recurring error in all major discographies.

onxidlib said...

Glmlr, yes I agree with you. This seems to be a fitting explanation for the discrepancy.

Funny how some people get so incredibly possessive about music that is not theirs. However, that ideosyncratic sense of syntax is wholly original.

This is wonderful, recording about a year before their great FMP LP "The Family," in which the trumpet and horn playing Marc Charig. Thank you.

I thought his looked familiar... I said thanks then but will say so again...

Crazy shit up above from Mr. "Brian":


"Oh, how dirty this stolen.


Onxi himself seeded this on DIME in 2010. It then appears unattributed to the sources on Mr. B's blog in 2012 (exactly the same file size) then Mr. B deigns to complain when the original source blogs it himself.

Either you're sourcing and sharing the music (which makes this a very cool place) or stealing and complaining and maybe transcoding good files to mp3 to boot (which is exactly makes most other blogs a waste of space).

Tho I digress...

thanks for pointing out the "NoiseNotMusic" blog which I did not know about before this amusing bit of reparte between accusatory posters.

That NoiseNotMusic blog is pretty awesome and i had not seen it prior to about a half hour ago... not only that, but i am now a big fan of some insane duo called "Lightning Bolt" whom I had never heard of before clicking on them on the noise not music blog.

Hey, this is the owner of NoiseNotMusic here. I'm not sure who Brian is but the text in my original post is indeed the text from the original DIME upload so it is not mine in the first place.

Nice to hear my site is "not unknown blog" though!

The defective CDR noise at the end of the last track is seriously unfortunate. One would hope that the person who ripped this might reconsider making it anew.

onxidlib said...

Hopefully this is a version without (or at least less) those annoying digital artifacts in track 4 - feedback would be welcomed.
I have still another version on the pc...
Thanks to JC for help without being asked!
