Günther Schickert - Kinder in der Wildniss

Artist: Günther Schickert
P: 1983 / 2013

Acclaimed in the Krautrock scene, Günter Schickert is most closely associated with the repetitive echoes of his distinctive guitar sound. Following "Samtvogel" (1974) and "Überfällig" (1979), he released "Kinder in der Wildnis", a collection of songs from the 1981 to 1983 period. First issued in 1983 on cassette by the English label YHC. The reissue (with new artwork!) features two previously unreleased bonus tracks.

Günther Schickert - Überfällig

Artist: Günther Schickert
P: 1979 / 2012

No sooner had electronic music broken through in Germany, principally aligned in the two schools of Düsseldorf and Berlin, Günter Schickert also began his first musical experiments. Although GAM, the group he founded in 1973, did not then release a record,
he did issue his first solo effort, “Samtvogel”, a year later, an album which was eagerly snapped up and re-released by the Brain label. It would take five years for Sky Records to release his next LP, entitled “Überfällig” (“Overdue”), which proved to be the last for a
number of years. This album, as its German title suggests, was long overdue. Günter Schickert had developed his own unique, forwardlooking type of music, assuming an exceptional position in the concert of German electronics. In spite of the clearly discernible influence of music from the so-called Berlin school (Tangerine Dream, Ash Ra Temple etc.),
Schickert is anything but a copycat. Schickert concentrated on pursuing his own ideas and pushing the boundaries of his remarkable aural creations. He is at pains to emphasize that, unlike almost all of his contemporaries, he did not use any synthesizers; his instruments are the electric guitar, his own studio with a multitrack tape machine and a comfortable arsenal of effects. Similar experiments had also been attempted by Manuel Göttsching
(“Inventions For Electric Guitar”) and Achim Reichel (AR & Machines: “Die Grüne Reise”), but without stretching the multifaceted nature of their music to the point of microtonality, as Schickert dared to do on “Überfällig”. His own take on minimalism places him closer to the likes of Steve Reich and Glen Branca, free from the reach of Klaus Schulze and Tangerine Dream. Schickert’s use of concrete sounds and his completely autonomous way of working in his own studio presaged a stage of development more readily associated with the early 1980s. In 1979 the album was a statement of a virtuosic outsider, a guitarist and sound sculptor whose musical visions transgressed the level of expectation of a potential audience, detached from the electronic mainstream. Günter Schickert was one of the protagonists who furthered the development of experimental pop music from the outer margins. The reissue of “Überfällig” was, in a word, overdue.

Cluster, Eno. Schickert u.a.

P: 2014
To provide an overview of the various musical styles in which Bureau B specializes, the label will launch a new compilation entitled KOLLEKTION. Each release in this series will be curated by a musician perfectly suited to the task. The first release will be "SKY RECORDS. Compiled by TIM GANE". The erstwhile Stereolab mastermind delves through the archives of the legendary German Krautrock label. Gane: "Sky was one of the labels that represented this more playful second period of innovative German music that first started in the late 60's and had developed in the late 70's into something rather different but, I think, no less groundbreaking."
