SAND | Golem
SAND | Metal Silver & black
There is something magical and inexplicable in creation, and Sand manifest absolutely these mysterious phenomena. Story-tellers, musicians, shamans, geniuses, Sand were known, at the end of the 60s, as P.O.T. (Part of Time). Then Sand - Ludwig Papenberg and his brother Ullrich Papenberg, and Johannes Vester, developed a more avant-gardist, proto-industrial, visionary experimental approach, a truly unique entity in the history of music.
Not dependant on a classical “Krautrock” style, Sand is nevertheless part of this movement of German cosmic/psychedelic bands, as well as being the originators of proto-industrial musics.
The present album is a reissue of Golem, the legendary album from the cosmic and psychedelic genius that is Sand. Factory-noise, riveting hammers from the dockyards, agricultural machines, Starfighters low level flights, land manoeuvres by the British Forces in the mountainous countryside along the winding river were the culture medium for extended sound aesthetics. Sand was born and created the GOLEM.
At first Sand dressed the Golem with Helicopter and dir ected him to walk ahead.
Rotorelief releases, from 2010, a series of new albums from Sand as well as a reissue of their obscure and rare album Golem. This series of albums is called INXODEM, the series title having one letter for each album. 5 albums of Sand are to be released: His First Steps – Golem – Desert Navigation – Sylph Ballet – North Atlantic Raven. Chromanatron by Nurse with Wound and When the May Rain Comes, cover versions of Sand by Current 93, complete the series.
