Now The Percs "Electric Kindergarten" is going into its fifth round. For this the "Schmankerln", which the project The Perc Meets The Hidden Gentleman (TPMTHG) published in extremely rare execution in 1993, thus to its Hochzeit, were again published. The CD once again contains rarities that were not to be found on the regular albums of the duo, which again and again received support from numerous illustrious guests. Here you can find again the very special Krautrock of the late eighties and early nineties, for which TPMTHG were notorious. Among them the "Long Version" of "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" (almost 40 seconds long), the "Pictures Of Matchstick Men" alias "Sketches Of Willy" and various alternate or live versions of TPMTHG classics like "This Moon Of Both Sides", "Niteride" or "Respect & Devotion". Sure - just for fans. But that is precisely the intention behind the "Electric Kindergarten" concept. Accordingly the recordings were left in their rather raw origin despite a cautious mastering.
