"There is so much groovy music here..." WHERE TO START???

I recommend to
start with the HLFP-Samplers (especially HLFP 04).
Here you will come to know many of the bands/musicians featured in this blog. If you like what you hear, you may check out more of their music later on.
(You may also click on the picture on the sidebar and you will find the original post with download links.)

There is also a "FOCUS ON..." section. Here you will find albums that in my opinion are absolutely great (***** = "five-stars-recordings") and that are essential listening and strongly recommended for download.

Please don't send me any more music submissions

and emails until further announcement!

I TRY to RE-UP some stuff that has been down from time to

time, but I still don't have enough time to

listen to/post much new stuff.


IMPRESSUM: see here!

Maxim Engl - guitar, electronics; Roger Eckhardt - bass, electronics; Peter Prochir - drums, electronics

ephemeroL is a platform to break new ground for different influences and genres. Repetition and frozen chords are as important and valuable as free material or rock music. Although our music is basically guitar/bass/drums, we use minimal electronic music, free improvisation and early industrial music to create something altogether new. Our live presentations vary from free improvised chamber tunes, endless drones and pure noise to more conventional structured rock tunes. In the early 80ies, before founding the still existing industrial project SIELWOLF, Peter was, together with HEINER GOEBBELS and ALFRED HARTH a member of the band CASSIBER, which created a compound of free improvised music, punk and avantgarde. At the same time Maxim combined industrial music with 60ies elements in his band JANITORS OF LUNACY, sometimes playing improvised happenings for five hours.

In 2004 we performed at an Indian music-festival in Frankfurt which lasted for several days. Together with Indian musicians, traditional music and our own material was used as a basis for improvisation. In 2005 Peter played several live sessions with ex-CAN vocalist DAMO SUZUKI.

Influences: Gus van Sandt; Gastr del Sol; Glenn Branca; Deep Purple; Black Sabbath; Pierre Henry; Philip K. Dick; David Cronenberg; J.G.Ballard; John Fahey; Alfred Bester; Spike Jonze; Miles Davis; PiL; tbc...

Sounds like: Flower /Eye /Haze!!!!!
