Rawfrücht's classic 1996 album, available for the first time on vinyl. Recorded in late 1996 and released in early 1997, this first album from the power trio Rawfrücht (two guitars plus percussions), defies and questions the definition of genres, eras and musical movements. Ranging from minimal meditative dronish soundscapes, perfect for introspective journeys, to more "groovy" moments, from noise rock to free rock-but-not-post rock unstable patterns -- sometimes even within a single track -- this album is a ride on undefined roads, no maps allowed, just instinct and the energy to always go further and deeper into charting new sonic territories. After the release of this first untitled album, names like those of Marc Ribot, Sonic Youth, or King Crimson were frequently associated to it. But this doesn't really define what this album, released for the first time on LP, really is about. Two guitars and drums. Swell Maps meet Parliament, shades of Hendrix. Can-erisms catching up with the ramblings of Gastr Del Sol. Secret and reserved side in the best tradition of the Chicago School: Tortoise, Rome, etc. Rawfrücht was a powerful trio from Brussels, based on two guitars: Hugues Warin and Teuk Henri (Sharko, Juniper Boots), and a drum: Thomas Van Cottom (Cabane, Venus).
