RAUMSCHIFF ENGELMAYR- Am Schüttel - LP - ROCK IS HELL

click to enlarge Erstes Solo-Album der österreichischen Noise-Rock Ikone, v.A. bekannt durch das Trio BULBUL, aber auch durch sein Mitwirken in Bands wie BROKEN HEART COLLECTOR, MUSCLE TOMCAT MACHINE, u.v.m.! Die Stücke sind ein eigentümlich originelles Gebräu aus Rock-Versatzstücken, Noise, Electronica, Austro-Pop Bizarre und HipHop. Kurz g'sagt: Irgendwo zwischen BULBUL und ATTWENGER. Mega abgefahren und scheißcool. LP inklusive Download-Code.
