Title: Alive In Veddige
Label: Candy Mind Records
Catalog #: CANDY005
Release Date: 2005/05/07
This is a live adventure of Hectopascal, from the picturesque realms of Veddige. It’s very much, according to them, an improvised one-take story produced with rusty electronic antiquities.
We on Candy Mind are glad to release this unpolished and spontaneous EP; totally free from any pretensions. Ranging from clay music in “Play Doo”, to the hurried count in “Greven Från Köln” and ending with a bang in psychedelic “Svälj Din Saliv”, this is true music, instant lo-fi rock’n’roll electronix!
This release also features remixes from the ruttish Liquid Stranger and chip music hero Dorothy’s Magic Bag.
1. PLAY DOO
Play Doo is nothing but Childhood music made out of clay. Now some advice: just be happy and let all the small clay monsters dance around you and everything will go fine. If not, you’ll put yourself in severe danger.
2. PÅ HAVETS BOTTEN
A crackling waltz from the bottom of the ocean, where the rockweed grows tall and algae are covering the remains of a wrecked drum machine still sending out a weak pulse… and if you listen very closely you may even hear the sound of electronic eels in a distance.
3. GREVEN FRÅN KÖLN
Dressed in cape and armed with his rapier, the count from König comes riding with horse and wagon. Sparkles from the wheels fill the air as he hurries down the cobbled streets. Prepare for some real old school music.
Let’s leave mother earth just for a short while and experience some quality free-floating in other space. In this tranquil lullaby you might get a glimpse of all kinds of astronomical wonders such as crazy comets and shooting stars.
5. SVÄLJ DIN SALIV
As a final of this live episode, Hectopascal delivers something that is hard to describe as something other than strange. Old 80s toy synthesizers and hand played kick drums battles with strange filter sounds and improvised melodies. And then it all ends with a large explosion… bang!
6. SVÄLJ DIN SALIV (LIQUID STRANGER REMIX)
Instead of listening to the original “Svälj din saliv” Liquid Stranger has been dancing a complex waltz, filled with a lot of inspiration from his lately experience in old style German dances. Join your beloved and dance to all the jelly dolphins the stranger brought us!
7. KROPPSHYDDA (DOROTHY´S MAGIC BAG REMIX)
From our outer space experience of the original version of “Kroppshydda”, we get a return ticket from Dorothy´s Magic Bag and finally end up in a toy store. Here rubber accordions and xylophones in miniature accompany plastic trumpets. Prepare for drama when the Bag goes mental with his secret GM sound library!
