Freak Out, Bitches Brew, London Calling, Trout Mask Replica, Zen Arcade, Electric Ladyland ... when tones and words explode in the head, the 2 sides of a vinyl record just won´t be enough. Then we must head to the Mount Everest of analogue record production: the double album! Here at Konkord we were mighty challenged by stuffing the cranky universe of Sweet William van Ghost into four sides of heavy plastic.
For God and Christoph Marek is a monolithic masterpiece that would find a place in your record shelf somewhere between Jandek and Leonard Cohen. A playful torture chamber with a piano inside, a melancholic tormenter who takes no prisoners: „The kids ain't allright // So let's fucking shoot them all". Terrible pail to sing along with. Nothing is cozy here, nothing indifferent. Everything is at stake. "I'm so full of love // And it's all for you". What usually sounds like rehashed fast food from the schlager music store: Sweet William makes it taste like lust, danger & chaos.
Styles and genres are no values anymore. Chanson? Pop? Electronica? Exorcism? Outsider music meets the grace of filthy hardcore porn. And when the music´s over, For God and Christoph Marek just begins. Awesome.
