"Mauser O.K. celebrates much of what makes this German-ensemble so essential, drawing from a variety of sources and influences to provide listeners with another important indication of the contribution Metabolismus has made to psych and outsider experiments over its almost three-decade-long existence. Whether it be lo-fi pop, free improvisation, sixties psychedelia or music concrete tape manipulation, like the Sun City Girls (who formed around the same year) Metabolismus 'metabolizes music' of all styles, shapes and forms; for this release, they transform Crass' screed 'Do They Owe Us a Living' into a Canterbury classic and resituate Brian Brain's 'Asthma Game' into the delicate pastoral landscape of their native Germany. These pieces were recorded and compiled over a fifteen-year span and it has been well worth the wait."
