about

Planes I 18'06"
Planes II 18'10"

Recorded on 11 May 1974 without interrupting the course of the music. Composed by Gregor Cürten and Anselm Rogmans.

Initially released in 1974 as a private press LP, this is the first official reissue of Planes, produced in close collaboration with Gregor Cürten and remastered from the original tapes by Giuseppe Ielasi.

With thanks to Ian Middleton and Clive Graham.

By my count only the second reissue on Entr’acte, in a catalogue of almost 150 titles. The first was a Fluxus cassette; Planes was a private press LP recorded by Cürten and Rogmans in one take in Germany in May 1974. It’s not quite Krautrock: while their contemporaries were aiming cosmic pulses into the bright sunset, Cürten and Rogmans directed blank synth drones nowhere in particular. The first side serves up dense, oscillating frequencies and wordless, moaning vocals, more failed motion than psychedelic transcendence. The more melodic second adds cyclical patterns of chiming guitar notes and electronic arpeggios. The usual Entr’acte vacuum packaging supplies only the bare minimum of information. Nonetheless, it's a pleasure to have this charming obscurity back in print.
