pcn / da Pöschl & the Ghosts - Split-LP (Vinyl, CD + Stream)
released by Echokammer
release date 5.2.21 - Echokammer / EK 090 / LC11378
Two 'old hands' of the munich underground have united forces for this record.
Albert Pöschl with his solo project da Pöschl & the Ghosts and Christian
Nothaft with his pcn - project, each one on his side, present leftfield electronic
music which spans from soundscape to electro.
Of course this release will come out on Pöschls own Echokammer - label.
This record is available as Vinyl with CD included or CD only.
"...music like mobiles, always balancing themselves, but without ever wanting
to reach a balance (of whatever).
Whereby "pcn" with such great titles like "Mighbouth (Lowknedge)" already
presents a certain kind of crackling-wound junkyard-electronics, but on closer
listening it turns out to be more electronics for the world as junkyard.
The other "pcn" tracks also trigger an imaginary found footage cinema in the head.
Things are similarly "cinematic" with "da pöschl & the ghosts".
"Don't Stop The Music" flirts with Marvin Gaye's "Sexual Healing", but gets
lost in a gray milky glass landscape, where "(No) Night Touch" turns dodgy
pirouettes in the traffic circle.
And how coincidences play like that: This is at the moment exactly the music
of the time as it is, but also a music for and from a (still) different time.
That may sound like a lot on the shoulders, but "da pösch & the ghosts"
and "pcn" easily master that." (Didi Neidhard)
review in german newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung of 26.Feb.21:
"It is something like a summit meeting under the opposite sign.
Because to the left and right of this tongue-in-cheek competitive
"versus", two free spirits are pooling their forces, who have long
since become indispensable in the Munich underground scene:
Christian Nothaft alias pcn, who is also a figure of the punk
“Bodensatz”collective (a kind of hybrid of label and publishing
house) has proven to be an accomplished multifunctional tinkerer
for a good two decades. On his website he has assembled a work that,
alternating between set dog dreams, retro-futuristic background
reading and free-spinning avant-garde, illustrates how wonderfully
wild it can sound, if nobody fumbles around with your own musical
On the opposite side: Albert Pöschl, with whom, as the label
boss, producer and musician, the threads of the fine indie label
"Echokammer" have come together for 20 years, and who likes to go
under his solo alias "Da Pöschl & The Ghosts" too just turn the
The two can now be heard together on a split album that, with four
pcn tracks on the A and six Pöschl tracks on the B side, outlines
an exciting cross-section of what electronic music can be...."
The infamous, mostly defunkt, munich label/posse "Bodensatz" sees some
awakening in the virtual domain of internet radio. The Bodensatz-Radio on Laut.fm
presents music related to this open underground collective and the output of
the many constellations their participants made music together in the 20 Years
since the beginnings - with large Christian-Nothaft-propotion...
The radio play "Biertel vor drei - Ein Suffgespräch über Kunst-
produktion in München (nachgesprochen von unseren Müttern)"
(Quarter to Three - a booze conversation about art production
in Munich (repeated by our mothers)) by and with Martin Krejci,
Thomas Glatz, Sigi Wiedemann, Florian a. Betz and Florian
Schenkel, and with the soundtrack by Christian Nothaft will
be published by Volxvergnügen as a cassetten-inlay to the
newest Schrottland - Magazine #7.
