Available now. Couscous is Andreas Ledl (clarinet, electric bass), Ralph Wakolbinger (drums, percussion), Martin Max Offenhuber (electronics, ghosttube, saz) and Thomas Binder-Reisinger (guitar, guzli). An Austrian group who have two earlier releases out on Pumpkin Records released in 2006 ('Couscous') and 2013 ('Trans'). Also they did much collaboration, with Damo Suzuki, Thollem McDonas (!) and many others. Boris Hauf, also from Austria, already participated on 'Trans' and is now again a natural partner to work with. Also Bob Donc guests on one track, playing zurna flute and field recordings on 'Lord Skeleton Dance'. What is Couscous about? They produce pompous, pulsating vehicles of massive sound. Heavy and loud music, departing from a rock and punk attitude. Some of the tracks move into sound research. Others are hammering, rhythm-driven entities. They serve their aggressive music raw on your plate. Either you like it, or not. They incorporate many different influences of (kraut) rock, improvisation, noise, sound collage, etc. Sometimes leading up to surprising twists and turns. No doubt they are an adventurous unit, seeking for the extreme.
