Ellufant-Release Concert[72 Obscure Dutch Experimental Rock]

Highly recommended
do leave comments

originalaly only 150 copies pressed
this is the limited repress of 500 copies(vinyl not on cd)
so its quite obscure
has two 16 minute+ jams

its similiar to early pink floydfloyd and german bands like can
and experimental electronic music


Why was this record released? Release, a dutch foundation and social workers organisation which was trying to find alternative ways of helping young people with various problems, needed money and decided to organise a benefit concert in the Rotterdam Youth Center 'De Ruimte' in April 1972.

They taped the concert by Dutch experimental band Ellufant or Abandoned Elephant or 11 phant, as they were also known as and pressed approx 150 copies of the album to sell in aid of the foundation.

What about the music? Ellufant was a two man band from Rotterdam, the Netherlands; keyboard player Ernst Kersting and percussionist Cees P. de Visser. Kersting used a modified keyboard, which he calls a V.S.K. Electronics organ on the sleeve. The music is dark, haunting underground improv sometimes comparable to early Pink Floyd, at other times sounding like german bands e.g. Can or even like electronic experimental music.

Not bad sound quality either for what is basically a private press on a shop label (Diskothiel was a record shop in Rotterdam).
