G. Rag Y Los Hermanos Patchekos - 0321 H
Second album of the "Caribbean Trash Orchestra". 16 pieces of great beauty. The traditional (Sautanz! Yambalaya!), the outrageous (the corrugated iron mambo), the summery (True Hill) and the danceable (Tango 321) is combined by the wild 11 in their inimitable way into a good-humoured review of 100 years of popular music.
While listening to the music of the Hermanos, some of you might ask yourself what the hell this 11-piece band is actually doing. It rattles and creaks, drags and runs and sprays with vitality in an inimitable way. The constant struggle with the material, in which only bores always remain victorious.
Mediterranean tunes, Caribbean sound, Lower Bavarian gstanzl (so-called Schmalzler), desert pop, minimal music (with a large orchestra), country, swing, tango and then off into the jungle, baby! Just to name a few stops. Correctly summarised, this is simply folk music. However, it is not with scientific meticulousness in dusty archives that the roots of popular music are researched here. The flotsam that strands in record boxes at flea markets and slowly rots away provides the musical gene pool from which the hermanos draw. Disrespectful? No. With a lot of love.
