This record aswell as the band is abit mysterious. While getting info from the net I stumbled over alot of contradicting information (like this record being from 1995, which is definately not true, my copy got published in 1976). But what seems to be fact is that this band did start in hungary and in one time of its career either completely moved or atleast recorded an album in australia (which seems rather unlikely, shouldn’t it be austria (the country neighbouring hungary) ?). And although I got three copies of this record from a library sale they all have a sticker at exact the same spot, making it hard to read the linernotes. (You gotta love these people working at a library … the backside has plenty of room for a sticker, but they put it on the text. Thanx alot.) Maybe a reader can give more info on this in the comments.
But no matter what, this record is really dope, in fact one of those that gave me a hard time deciding what tracks to put up here… Also this is a nice showoff moment for me, “look what great stuff I digged and can sample”. Hah ! It’s filled with loads of breaks, percussion loops, drumloops, stabs, hits … and a blast to just listen to (once you get accustomed to the hungarian language).
Track B1 Kinyujtom kezem (Stretching out my arms) has already been featured on the “Non Stop Beat”-mixset, A1 Hajnali enek (Song at dawn) begins with these great drums, full horn-section, a small guitar-solo with strings (something I don’t mind unlike other people who are immediately disgusted by even the smallest rock-reference in such music…), nice track. Track A2 Hol az az ember (Where is the man) has even more electric guitar, but also this amazing base groove of drums, bass, keys and guitar spiced up with a few horn-hits. B2 Hova mehetnek? (Where could I go ?) leaves a lot of space for that trumpet (?), a nice bass solo, fresh drums to sample … And as I said the rest of this record is as nice as these tracks, only one real ballad (which is not even bad either). I am glad I found this record especially because I made the mistake of ignoring Pepita-records for a few years because I thought it was all stadium-rock like the first few records I digged of that label (Fonogram, Dynamit etc.).
Discogs Entry for this record.
This record has obviously been re-released as a CD but is not widely avaible, you can still try getting it (or the vinyl on gemm, as always).
