Kommissar Hjuler Und Mama Baer & Ninni Morgia/Silvia Kastel – “Two Couples” – [Ultramarine]

This record is just too damned weird. Deranged German couple on one side, incomprehensible Italian couple on the other. On the Kommissar/Mama side there is talking, and somebody repeatedly hitting something squeaky, then Mama’s agitated voice shrieks and wails and howls while Kommissar taps/bangs rhythmically on a guitar. Two short pieces and one long one; all of them cut off suddenly. The Ninni/Silvia side is more listenable and less random sounding than the other side, but still kind of a mess. It seems to be mostly electronic sounds, and there is nothing I recognize as a voice until the last track, which is probably the closest thing to music on this record–all psychedelic guitars and heavy reverb, and eventually some Yoko Ono-inspired squealing atop a throbbing background. I kind of enjoyed listening to it but now have a headache as a result.
