Maciunas Ensemble; 1976Editions Telemark
ET 314-07 LP
Long Playing Record
First release of this 1976 recording by an early lineup of Paul Panhuysen's Maciunas Ensemble, featuring Remko "Machine Guitars" Scha, "Rock Musician" Jan Van Riet, Hans Schurman, and Leon van Noorden.
Notably different than the general tone across the spate of later CD-era issues via Panhuysen's Apollo Records, things opt closer to an almost Commune-Psych-esque lilt, with the group's stray vocal chants & motor-rhythms often veering into Moondog territory, often as primal as the channelings of Alan Watts' "This Is It."
