Drum Circus



Drum Circus : Magic Theatre.
Recorded 1971, Horst Jankowski.

Killer tune lifted from this rare cd lp. Pointed in the direction of this one by Arkadin and El Reza no less. Papera cannot be played to loud, heavy jazz percussion, short but sweet.

Essential ....

There's couple of tracks that lean towards jazz/rock. There's also a track called "Groove rock" which is as good as the Papera. It's a tricky cd to find, produced by Garden of Delights in 2003. Seen copies going for £30 of £40, no vinyl issues.

Some info;
Founder and leader of Drum Circus from Switzerland has been the master drummer Peter Giger. "A giant on drums", as the newspaper "Rhein-Main-Zeitung" called him. He was joined, among others, by two additional drummers, as well as by Joel Vandroogenbroeck and Carole Muriel, both from Brainticket. Therefore, it's not surprising that "Magic theatre", with its LSD-dripping lyrics (partly written by Timothy Leary, partly influenced by "The Tibetan book of the dead"), reminds sometimes forcefully of the early Brainticket. "Magic theatre" was recorded in the excellent studio of Horst Jankowski in Stuttgart. Yet, it remained unreleased, then. Shortly before his death, Horst Jankowski gave the tapes to Peter Giger. The front cover shows Peter Giger on drums and Joel Vandroogenbroeck.
