Deaf - Alpha (1994)

The one and only album from this band from Switzerland.

The band was a quintet with a lineup of percussion, drums, bass, guitars, organ, piano, flute and vocals.

Two guests added more vocals.

This is a compilation of studio recordings this band did between 1970 and 1972. It therefore does not really belong in this blog, but I took pity on it after one listening session and continue to lend it my ears for some more sessions.

The music is hard, bluesy, improvised psych krautrock. 

The sound is pretty dire and nothing to be too happy about.

The music is pretty dire too and this fifty minutes long album, including a twenty minutes long improvised piece, is not something wasting money on.

There are some half decent pieces here and this album is not a total failure. But it is close..... and it is a turkey.

1 point
