did they ever even play live in the first place?

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.

Hope the T dream series stops before the 1980s era.

how did everyone do just sitting there still for so long? was there audible fidgeting? was the music really loud?

The music wasn't very loud, the worst noise pollution came from the back of the hall where they were selling cans of beer - lots of popping, clanking and fizzing. Problem solved by moving nearer the front! I had a similarly strange feeling at a Messiaen organ recital in Westminster Abbey a couple of years ago, as the organist was obviously hidden away, resulting in a "where do I look?" conundrum. The audience were better behaved at that one though, and they weren't selling beers at the back of the Abbey either, which helped.

really? def sounds like them

In 1975 they visited again Italy for a concert at the University ‘La Statale’ of Milan, somewhere in september. The concert was promoted by the 'Gong' magazine (a magazine about progressive-experimental rock), after R.U. Kaiser established an agreement with the PDU label for licensing the Ohr/Pilz/DKK records in Italy.
The concert was opened by a very young Roberto Cacciapaglia, who played a part of 'Sonanze'. For this occasion Popol Vuh consisted of: Florian Fricke (piano and voice), Daniel Fichelscher (guitars) and Renate Knaup (vocals and percussion).
There exists a tape/bootleg from this concert.

Oh maybe I haven't got that one!

Whirlwind Bromance (Tom D.), Thursday, 13 May 2010 14:53 (4 years ago) Permalink

oh man, selling beers? that's what i was afraid of. i'm getting a better picture of this event already.
guess i shouldn't begrudge people the joy of purchasing beers, but...i dunno. i get it now. i still think it would be enjoyable, but definitely sit near the front.

also why was it not really super loud? i would want it to be so loud that i couldn't even think of anything else.

lol this "play popol vuh albums in a church" thing is weird! is this a specifically popol vuh thing, or do they do other artists? i guess the tangerine dream pic suggests they do. i guess i can imagine going ...

He's used to Velvets bootlegs, that won't bother him!

They're organised by these guys : http://www.sonic360.com/
I think they were talking about doing Ash Ra Tempel too maybe? Easier than organising a tribute band...

i love popol vuh tons and tons and tons but i couldn't imagine going to sit in a church and drink beer to hear one of their records.

Finding someone who can play like Manuel Gottsching might be tricky...

You'd have to ask the vicar. Hey, it's in Hoxton...

It's called a camberwell carrot because it was invented in camberwell and it resembles a carrot.

i've been trancing out w/two nice Popol Vuh compilations:

Love that first cover- it's a Herzog megamix!

That first comp pictured above was my introduction to PV, I'd actually recommend it as a good starting point.

Die Grosse Ekstase die Bildschnitzers Steiner (The Great Ecstasy of the Woodcarver Steiner) (director: Werner Herzog, 1973)
This is a typically idiosyncratic Herzog documentary on the Swiss show jumper, Walter Steiner. Features some lovely Popol Vuh music, music which I’ve yet to hear on any album – damn it!

Has any of the music for this ever been released? It drives me crazy that I can't find the main theme for this film anywhere.
