Cassette released on Entenpfuhl, EMM 006, 1989

This is C-Schulz‘s first cassette release in a 100 copies edition on the Köln experimental label Entenpfuhl. The label was founded by C-Schulz, Frank Dommert, Marcus Schmickler and Georg Odijk in 1987. C-Schulz (real name Carsten Schulz) is a Köln musician born 1968, who has been associated with local artists and labels like Hajsch, POL, and projects with Schmickler, FX Randomiz, the Sonig label, etc. He’s now working on electroacoustic multi-chanel live performances. ‘Jahre Später’ is a remarkably fine release for a debut album, and is on a par with C-Schulz’s masterpieces to follow, namely 1991 LP ’10. Hose Horn’ and the 1992 CD ‘4. Film Ton’ on Extreme. ‘Jahre Später’ is noticeable for its multiple references to extra-european music (excerpts from Tibetan, Indonesian and Turkish traditionals, as well as Umm Kulthum/Om Kalsoum), classical music (Schulz is a classicaly trained oboeist), found sounds or field recordings and avantgarde electronics a la HNAS. The music is perfectly balanced between clarinet, location recordings and keyboards. Contributing musicans include pianist Christoph Kahse on keyboards on tr. #5 & 8 and Ralf Reuter on #2. The last 2 tracks are utterly beautiful while the whole cassette shows a maturity rarely found in debut releases.

    Hi there, I’m EzequieL of Spanish Progressive Rock… I was wondering, does Tony still post here? If so, I have a little surprise for him in my blog. And for most people who visit this place :-D

    I never heard of this one — or of 10. Hose Horn either for that matter. Thanks!

    your blog is fantastic : so many discoveries and amazing rarities!!

    but… a detail…

    Entenpfuhl wasn’t founded in 1992 but earlier (I think 5 years before, in 1987, with a first cassette compilation) :

    And the first LP three years later, in 1990 :

    All the best / Continue the good work!
