Bohren & der Club of Gore
Bohren For Beginners
PUT THIS IN YOUR DEN for a career-spanning collection from arguably the greatest dark jazz ensemble of all time. Deep and doomy, these tracks give a killer sample of each album and era from the band's history. Don't let the darkness fool you, this is great music for a candlelight dinner (perhaps on the gothier side) - but you'll find yourself spinning it to work, read, chill, or sleep. Essential, even if you own the complete discography.
Available on 3xLP black wax
Since their formation just over 30 years ago, hardly any German band has managed to create such a unique musical cosmos as Bohren & der Club Of Gore from Mühlheim. With their dark instrumental tracks, Bohren have been able to gain a leg-hold fan base in recent years, and renowned musicians such as Mike Patton (Faith No More), Ry-X, John Grant, Soap & Skin and Thor Harris (Swans) have long since fallen for Bohren's timeless songs.
The wonderfully titled "Bohren For Beginners" now collects all the highlights of the Bohren catalogue in partly remixed versions, as well as a new song, for the first time as a 3LP album, so that the present work show is of interest as a gateway drug for newcomers as well as for diehard fans. Since a large part of the Bohren back catalogue has already been deleted for years, musical treasures are unearthed here that have lost none of their quality and will still give you goosebumps in 20 years.
