This reminds me that I gotta get Cobra Verde OST this month when my eMusic creds refresh.

The big question about Fichelscher is where the hell is he? What does he do with his hands instead of doing that Kleiner Krieger thang?

hey the search engine's finding this thread again, it was lost for a while. I was trying to wake it up to say how good Messa di Orfeo is.

the first time the recitational comes on, I thought 'ok I could listen to that woman's voice forever', and was happyy when it turns out they were thinking exactly the same thing. and the return to electronics really works -- the sampled crickets & insect harmonics are great. finally found a copy of the CD this weekend and the booklet's filled with color photos of the recording sessions & installation, including De Germano at the mic and a picture of the huge chorus.

also been listening to Hosianna Mantra a _lot_ these last few months. you really have to be in a wispy mood I guess but sometimes I think this one's my favorite

lately i've been listening to:
-bruder des schattens-sohne des lichts
-Letzte Tage, Letzte Nächte
-Herz aus Glas

that mid seventies stuff reallllly does it for me.

remembered to check for pv on emusic, got four albs, and the first three tracks of hosianna mantra have been blowing my mind all day

i guess i gotta listen to that one again. My copy has a bit of surface noise and it always agitates me. Does emusic have Bruder des Schattens? That's my fave, probably.

ian, Wednesday, 5 September 2007 21:04 (7 years ago) Permalink

yeah it does - i ran out of DL's though before i could get it

69, Wednesday, 5 September 2007 21:07 (7 years ago) Permalink

emusic has k-vuh.

Even Cobra Verde.

It's all in the recent remaster versions, which are not always superior to previous editions, but mostly fine.

Hosianna Mantra is probably my favorite, though it doesn't really compare to any of the others (not rock, not electronic, less clay binding it to the ground)

Milton Parker, Wednesday, 5 September 2007 21:47 (7 years ago) Permalink

i need an LP copy of the aguirre soundtrack, if anyone has one to spare. even a crappy bootleg! ("need")

However, have heard good reports on "Messa Di Orfeo", which is from 1999ish, have never actually seen a copy tho.

Finally got to hear this. It's nice, not an out-and-out classic, but very worthwhile and good that the last thing Florian recorded (or the last that was released) was something of a return to his roots: experimental, electronic and, unlike most latter day Popol Vuh, not a misguided (or misGuidoed) attempt to be down with the kidz. A live recording I believe.

Also heard "Yoga", which is also a nice album but really has nothing much to do with Popol Vuh. Apparently it was recorded by Florian Fricke, and he may have played harmonium on it, but it was released without his permission.

Next stop is to finally get to hear "Die Erde und ich sind eins", an album of vocal chants, which was a private release, credited solely to Florian Fricke.

goddamn, i don't think there's ever been a band where i've said to myself more often "ah, this is the last one i need!" and been wrong every time. i mean, i THINK i've got everything, then i notice how many soundtracks they did. and "yoga." and that guido hieronymous shit, though i doubt i need those.

open the BLOOD gates! (GOTT PUNCH II HAWKWINDZ), Friday, 14 November 2008 12:53 (5 years ago) Permalink

also, some of the recurring themes on "coeur de verre" remind me of "hiroshima" by flower travellin' band.

What albums that on? "Hiroshima", I mean.

"made in japan"

guido heironymous albs are pretty bad....

Yeah, there's a number of the piano/drums/guitar albums that are basically the same kind of stuff, probably somehat repetitive if you don't dig PV*, but I find that I can never have too much of it, somehow.

(*If you actively dislike Popol Vuh, then I can never respect anything you have to say about anything. etc etc)

Pashmina, Friday, 14 November 2008 13:14 (5 years ago) Permalink

Probably said something similar upthread, but Daniel Fichelscher has got to be THE underrated "sleeper" guitarist's guitarist, how he isn't better-known is a mystery to me. I've never read an article about him in a guitar magazine once.

hosianna mantra really did it for me at 4am when i was drunkenly trying to settle in for bed. i dozed off and when i woke couldn't quite remember what record i had put on--it was THAT GOOD!

i've been really into this stuff lately. it's totally fitting these guys would inspire those painstaking, loving descriptions dadaismus supplies up above

I am doing that annoying thing where a person bumps a thread just to say how much s/he loves something, but that said

I could probably listen to Popol Vuh once a day for the rest of my life and never really truly get tired of hearing them. I listened to Brüder des Schattens the other day and I'm still thinking about how much I enjoyed it.

Has anyone been to those events in London where one of their albums is played in an ancient church or something like that? I see updates on facebook but I am in no position to attend any events in London. Just wondering.

Yeah, I was wondering: who goes to such an event? That's part of the report I expect, btw.

I went to the first one (Affenstunde and In Den Garten Pharoahs), once we got over the slight strangeness of the situation it was very nice - good sound system, candles, mmm. Bit of a strange thing to pay £5 for but until Daniel Fichelscher plays it live again (doubtful - did they ever even play live in the first place?) it'll have to do.

Yes. Fricke/Fichelscher/Djong Yun line-up, I believe.

Who goes? Um, some middle-aged record collector types (had to move to a different part of the church to get away from their "witty" sardonic comments and beer breath), a few Hoxton hipsters, dunno really. Didn't see any goths. No psychobillies either.
