LOW STOCK LEVEL
Die Grobschnitt Story
Double CD compilation of rare tracks put together by the band's most visible member, drummer Eroc. This is the original 1994 2CD version on Metronome (going through the Brain archives). More recently this set was reissued by Repertoire as part of their new Brain series -- and actually, we meant to order that version. But screwed up and ordered this version instead. If we ever sell out of the stock of this pressing (a distinct non-possibility considering the theatricality of Grobschnitt's music!), we will probably "upgrade" the Repertoire version (which is supposedly remastered, but the same track-wise). "This is the story of Grobschnitt -- or rather, part I of the story of Grobschnitt, perhaps the best German band of the 70s. A 6-piece from Hagen, Grobschnitt was more than a musical group -- part rock, part circus act, part theatre, famous for 3 hour long concerts spectacles. They were once considered to be the German version of Zappa's Mothers of Invention."
