Music today was a wonderful immersion into two Kluster albums, Klopfzeichen (knock signs, 1970) recorded in 1969 and with industrial and resonant experimental electronics with a narrative of anti-propaganda spoken by a German woman whose message is better enjoyed when you have a German wife to translate, despite the power of the mood it creates when understanding nothing. Eruption (1971), recorded live and their third release, after their second album Zwei-Osterei (two-easter egg), forgoes the text of the first two albums. It makes Einstürzende Neubauten sound like The Cars or rather the sound of cars being crushed in giant metal machines in a scrapyard in hell, ripping off the doors to the screams of forced amputation but then the aftermath, contemplative and considered.
