Third and last Lard Free Lp, originally recorded in 1977.Another step forward in Gilbert Artman’s constant evolution in the use of the recording studio as an aditional instrument that offers a whole lot of creative possibilities. The results are amazing!


Dark, electronic space-rock minimalism at it’s best. That could be a good way to describe Gilbert Artman’s third album with “Lard Free” from 1977. This fine record starts of with the 17-minute piece “Spirale Malax”, which kind of gives you the feeling of beeing lost in a snowstorm while on acid. The speaker-to-speaker effects here are brilliant and almost gives you an illusion of spinning around (at it’s full effect while listening with head-phones!). Swirling, pulsating synthesizers and electronics with drums and electric guitar. Yum!
Side two: “Synthetic Seasons” – in three parts . This piece is quite reminiscent (in feeling) of Ennio Morricone’s early 70’s horror-film music (particularly his soundtrack for the 1971 movie “Il Gatto A Nove Code”). Trance-inducing, atmospheric genius with heavy synthesizers and electronics just as on the first half, but also with a more subtle section of clarinet and piano. For lovers of kraut-rock, space-rock, 60’s/70’s electronic and minimalism.

Not Bad For a Record !
