About this item

In 1984, two years after their first album collaboration, "Strange Music", Dieter Moebius and Gerd Beerbohm issued their second LP, "Double Cut". It bore the same distinctive hallmarks as its predecessor, but this time around, the two musicians had simplified matters significantly. This was not simplification due to a lack of inspiration, however, but a masterful concentration on what really counts in pop music: rhythm. The centrepiece of the album, the 22-minute "Doppelschnitt", can be tagged as proto-techno. Moebius and Beerbohm have grafted an endless stream of rhythmical electronic particles onto an ostinato bass and drum figure, fluttering to and fro like the lightest of shimmering veils.
