Nihilist Spasm Band / Metabolismus – split album

nihilist spasm band metabolismus split 

Honoured to be releasing this very fine and very wild split tape, the brainchild of Klemen from It’s Psychedelic Baby magazine who has kindly contributed sleeve notes.

On side one, we have Nihilist Spasm Band. Formed in 1965, they made the infamous Nurse With Wound list in 1979 for their sterling work in breaking down musical rules and boundaries through their weekly jams and sporadic releases. So sporadic they even took 11 years between their first and second albums. It is a marvelous thing to have them out on Was Ist Das?

Over on side two are the musical collective Metabolismus from Stuttgart, Germany who have been putting out mind-altering blasts of other music since 1989. Their fluid line-up sometimes includes Samara Lubelski Taking their cues from the NSB, they’ve gone and built their own instruments too for this one and laid down some rambunctious improve of their own.
