About this item

Re-release after 15 years of Holger Czukay’s early solo work.

‘On The Way To The Peak Of Normal’ is the third album by Holger Czukay, originally released in 1981.

After ‘Movies’, his first post-Can solo album, Czukay continued exploring the methods of sampling and laidback jamming on this follow-up. The side long ‘Ode To Perfume’ / ‘Fragrance’ coasts along on some heavily twangy guitar, shortwave static, treated vocals, and drunken trumpet, all in a hypnotic late night groove.

Intended as environmental music for some underlit, velvet clad chillout room, the album can be seen as one long rumination on improvised understatement.
