Sturmpercht * Der Marsch der Wampelerreiter / Viel volle Becher klangen (7″ 2005 percht)

I only knew Sturmpercht by reputation, but this is the first of several releases that I was able to lay my hands on. I love their image based on the (in this case) Austrian ‘Perchten’ tradition. We also have these masked figures in the area where I live, but this forgotten tradition was almost lost. Sturmpercht makes totally weird and silly folky music with vocals reminding a bit of Markus Wolff and Mark Riddick, but Sturmpercht is from Austria and not from USA (right?). Actually the music is also between Waldteufel and The Soil Bleeds Black… A very funny release with a great concept.
