Music I Liked And Didn't - 4/23/07 - 4/24/07
SILVESTER ANFANG: Echte Vlaamse Geiten LP (Eclipse) - After many limited releases on CDR and cassette, this is the second proper full-length release from the prolific Belgian free psych collective Silvester Anfang. Armed with an arsenal of acoustic and electric instruments, the group (who describe their music as “funeral folk”) create a dark, druggy mess of improvised pieces, ranging from the lumbering, lo-fi, heavy psych of “Satanische Slang Vernietig De Aarde” to the excellent droning basement psych raga “Mag Ik Eens Met Uw Viool Spelen”. As is often the case with recordings made by such collectives, there are certainly some segments where things break down and the result is less than captivating. Overall, however, this is a relatively interesting and worthy addition to the collective body of work produced by the burgeoning international scene of free psych jam bands.
