Polish King Elf (real name Grzegorz Król) was the accordion player on Za Siódma Góra’s Rozmaite oblicza tej samej Paszczeki cassette on Obuh Records (if you need a version of the tape, see Dark Independent PL blog). Wether he played on other Obuh Records’ releases is not known to me, though he was probably close to the Obuh Records team also located in Lublin. Obuh was founded by Wojciech Czern, the man behind Za Siódma Góra, whose releases always involved many guest musicians from the local scene. On his only solo release, King Elf plays instrumental sad songs on accordion. These are mournful instrumentals based on minimal, repetitive basic chords. The playing is similar to the harmonium on Current 93’s 2006 Sleep Has His House album, for instance. If you concentrate on the music, your mind starts to drift away and sadness falls unpon you like rain on Scotland. A few voices can be faintly heard at end of Track #2, that of King Elf, I assume.
