Album Review

Alles Wie Gross – “Vertonung ” – [The Communion Label]

Thurston Hunger   10/1/2005   A Library, CD

Chamber rock! Any soundtrack to “Hamlet”
such as this needs anguish, visits from
ghost, and blood. I picture the violinist
and cellist, dressed in tuxes, well-coiffed
staring straight ahead while clandestinely
mopping up blood pushing rags around with
their expensive shoes. The marriage of
typical orchestral instrumentaion with
guitar/drums/bass has room for plenty more
artists to dive in. Bassist Michael Heilrath
(of Couch and Blond) wrote all of the music
here…this is an American version of the
eminent Hausmusik/Kollaps/{Payola} empire.
Sadly, as fleeting as the life of the prince
of the Danes. Excellent debut!
