This amazing tape is one of many sent to me by Joachim from Heidelberg. Joachim has very kindly donated a real treasure trove of music from around the world to Snap, Crackle and Pop and we should all be grateful as there will now be some really strange and wonderful music posted here over the coming months.
Altain Orgil are a Mongolian group who were (and maybe still are) based in Germany in the mid '90s. This cassette is from 1994.
Joachim has this to say about Altain Orgil:
"I met this group in the city centre of Heidelberg in 1994. They were playing their instruments and doing the extraordinary throat singing which is typical for mongolian and other inner-asian tribes. I heard throat singing before on the radio but it is a completely extraordinary feeling standing among musicians who do it. The sound penetrates your body and makes it vibrate in a peculiar way. The musicians also let me touch their instruments like the horse-headed Morin Khuur, which sounds a bit like a cello, or the lute Tobshuur."
This is really quite magical music and I hope you all enjoy it as much as I am.

It feels like a while since the last post, but here we are, back with a real treat. This live album from Russian free jazz ensemble, The Ganelin Trio, was a real find at the local bootsale a couple of weeks ago, and it comes out fighting right from the beginning. Its hard to believe that three people can make such a range of aberrant noises.
here and here.
