Dadaistic wit seems to inspire this musical collective (the singers H. M. Fishli and Michaela Flame with musicians from Polytoxicomane Philharmonie). Not only has there never been a black belt in the Kamasutra love sport, the five musicians and singers also dream of "throwing the yolk over the moat of the mainstream against the temple walls of pop" (the band's slogan). "Mayday Sister Mayday" sounds like a hippie-spun fusion like Alice Coltrane did with Carlos Santana ("Illuminations") in 1974. A lot of anarchistic wit can be spotted here. The band is supported by wind and string instruments of the Apocryphal Special School Orchestra, so that oriental wind blows in "Werküken" as well. The simple "Shaken Not Stirred" satisfies the claim of "Psychedelic Pop Tunes From The Vault" printed on the cover. Also the longtracks are vocal oriented, but still extremely herbaceous. This ranges from classic fusion approaches ("Still Flaky But Free") to orgiastic Canterbury loops ("Whitewash"). That's wacko.
