“Factory (A strike!) Prison (The leader of the strikers is arrested!) Masters of the Universe (Declaration of a lockout!) Ball for the Masters of the Universe (Ending with revolution and victory of the workers!) Stock Exchange. Seizure of the stock exchange by the proletariat, who turn it into a pantheon of work.”
Unsettling, frantic and anti-sentimental, Hans Tammen’s “Third Eye Electric Band” – for whom machine oil is mother’s milk – fuse relentless polyrhythmic machinations with ethereal yet roughly sewn soundscapes, like a mix of Mwandishi, Bitches Brew and Sextant, with a hint of Magma. Dark, sometimes brooding ensemble passages mix and mingle with tightly woven drum-loops, and extended solo cadenzas build up to a mighty hymn to machine work, music of a metallic nightmare”
