idk -- i would have to listen to them side by side and am not prepared to do that atm
report back and tell us!

that's such a good song they put it on 2 albums just in case

Yes, the second has more, or different at least, (electric) lead guitar on it, it's not as good.

Alan Alba (Tom D.), Tuesday, 3 July 2018 22:05 (one month ago) Permalink

it sounds to me like no, but all I did was sync them up and let them play, if the latter has an electric lead it might just be overpowering the former

the backing tracks seem identical tho

playing along with that song is one of life's small joys

Der Ruf from Herz aus Glas is also great Fichelscher, would be OK with like a 29-minute version of it

the guitar tone make it sound like a song off the Real Ramona

Oh yeah herz aus glas could have every song extended to lp side length and I’d be happy

i still haven't been able to find that interview that used to be on youtube -- the one where fichelscher is basically talking to the camera and he tells the story of how he brought his bongos to a music festival as a teen and joined amon duul II. it was the closest i have come to learning more about the popol vuh history/sound/process than i have found anywhere else and i can't find it!

one thing that stuck with me was when he picked up his guitar and just started noodling a little -- that's when i realized that what i loved about PV was at least 50% (prob more) fichelscher.

weird woman in a bar (La Lechera), Wednesday, 4 July 2018 13:48 (one month ago) Permalink

is that the one where he's shirtless and the interview pauses so he can go get cigarettes?

com rad erry red flag (f. hazel), Wednesday, 4 July 2018 15:35 (one month ago) Permalink

Yes, he's absolutely not what you might expect someone in Popol Vuh to be like, he's a kind of rock 'n' roll dude.

Alan Alba (Tom D.), Wednesday, 4 July 2018 15:38 (one month ago) Permalink

I was telling someone about that DF interview / monologue recently and trawled back through this thread to find out when it first appeared. I think he must have taken it down himself? Dude needs to get a memoir out there IIRC.

Is he still playing with ADII?

Absolute Unit Delta Plus (Noel Emits), Wednesday, 4 July 2018 15:40 (one month ago) Permalink

last i heard he was still playing with ADII -- i have a google alert for him so i am aware of any developments and i can't say much has come through

i would like to meet/converse with him more than any other living person of that place/time (now that Jaki is gone :( )
would also enjoy a convo with irmin but i do have the can book so that's something

the info on fichelscher is so scanty -- i want him to know that there are people out here who care! so he can spill while he is still with us!

weird woman in a bar (La Lechera), Thursday, 5 July 2018 02:50 (one month ago) Permalink

Where is he living? If I find myself in Berlin this Christmas I'll look for him

com rad erry red flag (f. hazel), Thursday, 5 July 2018 03:07 (one month ago) Permalink

he must live somewhere in europe -- i know ADII has toured around europe and played festivals and whatnot but i don't think they have made an appearance in the states/this continent that i am aware of
look him up! send him to me!

weird woman in a bar (La Lechera), Thursday, 5 July 2018 03:12 (one month ago) Permalink

I'm sure he's not that old btw, I think he was a teenager when he joined ADII, so hopefully he'll be with us for a while yet.

Alan Alba (Tom D.), Thursday, 5 July 2018 07:02 (one month ago) Permalink

He started young:

How can that be Berlin? The grass is cut.

why am I wasting my life in America sitting inside, wearing vests with shirts under them?

Actually I suppose that is the Englischer Garten in Munich as afaik Amon Düül II are still located there. The next gig is the Finkenbach festival on August, 10th, so if you really want to see Danny, you should go there.Finkenbach is also called the Woodstock in the Odenwald. It is about one hour by car South of Frankfurt/Main.

Crazy name, crazy guy.

Alan Alba (Tom D.), Wednesday, 11 July 2018 17:08 (one month ago) Permalink

it looks like he has about 6 arms in that photo!

i can't zip on over to munich until i get my passport renewed and i doubt that is going to happen with such short notice (it's not)

Well there's basically 18 minutes of that track on the second side of the "Spirit of Peace" album.

Alan Alba (Tom D.), Wednesday, 11 July 2018 21:24 (one month ago) Permalink

love the sound of that

global tetrahedron, Wednesday, 11 July 2018 21:27 (one month ago) Permalink

Also "Brüder des Schattens – Söhne des Lichts" and "Die Nacht der Seele" albums.

Alan Alba (Tom D.), Wednesday, 11 July 2018 21:32 (one month ago) Permalink

also there's probably a lot of roy montgomery albums you would enjoy

com rad erry red flag (f. hazel), Wednesday, 11 July 2018 21:47 (one month ago) Permalink

i’ve dabbled in him but didnt find anything i really loved right off the bat like this. i like the syncopated guitar parts and the trance-like feel. i’m all ears for recommendations though!

global tetrahedron, Wednesday, 11 July 2018 22:23 (one month ago) Permalink

I think the music on side two of Spirit of Peace IS King Minos II

com rad erry red flag (f. hazel), Thursday, 12 July 2018 00:10 (one month ago) Permalink

it definitely is- more layers and stuff obviously. love it

global tetrahedron, Thursday, 12 July 2018 01:53 (one month ago) Permalink

Same track yes, if not the same recording, which is why putting it as a bonus track on "Einsjager" and calling it "King Minos II" makes no sense.
