The year is 1999, a small village next to Budapest, Hungary.
Törökbálint in native language, Großturwall in German. Both names appear on the plate at the village entrance.
After fleeing the bombardment of their hometown of Novi Sad, they reconnect at this very village. Having being friends and collaborators dating back to 1989, and Gaspar releasing his music through CyberfArts (DIY label ov Ferenc), getting back together and recording music was a natural progression. Not to speak of the energy that needed to be catalyzed, for they were mightily embittered by the whole situation they were in at the time.
” Majority of the sessions took place at the local restaurant/pansion Wotan, where Gaspar was living in the loft above. Most of our instruments were left behind, so we used any means we had, to create and record. Modified toys were used, self-made microphones, custom build mods for Rebirth, an old walkman-radio was controlled by showing a screwdriver in it…
We would play the local TV station (TBTV) and mix that in the live performance.
Almost 80% of the recordings were done by improvising for hours on end.
We used Metal and Chrome cassette tapes and a cheap Ghetto Blaster to record the sessions. After we obtained a computer, these recordings were cut up and edited into albums/EP’s. All in all, 10 CD-R’s were created. The playlist below is in chronological order. “
