"Bröselmaschine is one of the oldest bands from Germany and still alive! The reactions to their latest studio album (2017) were awesome by critics and fans. All over the world, especially in USA and Japan, the debut album from 1971 is listed as one of the most important Krautrock albums of all time - beneath Amon Düül, Can and Tangerine Dream (e.g. the New York Blog 'Pigeon & Planes' rank 9 of 20). On the occasion of their 50th anniversary MIG will release an anthology box set containing 5 CDs and two DVDs - a complete documentary of this unique band (1968 to 2017). An impressive 48 page booklet with extended liner notes and photos makes this release a special gem. The box set contains all studio albums including the iconic debut, carefully restored and digitally remastered. For the album I Feel Fine we got the original two inch multi-track tapes baked and digitalized; our proven sound engineer Hoppi made a contemporary mix, but for all that still ensouled by the ghosts of the '70s. The album Graublau (Greyblue) was digitally remastered from the original analogue 1/4inch master tape from 1984. It is fascinating and entertaining to follow this extraordinary band through the decades in different line-ups. On guitar: Willi Kissmer and Michael Dommers (previously Wallenstein) and, of cause mastermind Peter Bursch, who is also playing the sitar. Part of the band for many years are also exceptional German drummer Manni von Bohr, and on keyboards Helge Schneider. There are also Klaus Dapper on flutes and saxophone, Deltlef Wiederhöft on bass, the great Nippy Noya on percussions and many, many more."
