Bocksholm * Excursions By The Bank Of The Black River (cd 2002)

Bocksholm we of course all know from “The Manifold Of Peter Andersson”. The booklet of this compilation with the different projects of Peter Andersson (Raison D’Être, etc.) explains how Bocksholm came into existence.
Since the early days of Cold Meat Industry there have been two Peter Anderssons involved with this label. One we all know for Raison D’Être, etc., the other for Deutsch Nepal, etc. Both Peter Anderssons are born in the small city of Boxholm of which the bandname is an old way of writing. After having known eachother and worked together for about 10 years, the two Peters Andersson decided to cooperate on the musical level.
The Bocksholm track on “The Manifold…” isn’t the best track on that cd, so when I received this cd from Tesco to review, I was afraid that I had to write a bad review. Fortunately “Excursions…” is a lot better than I feared. Most of the cd isn’t as noisy as the “The Manifold…” track and the noise that is on this cd is better. The largest part consists of rather simple and soft rhythmical and repetitive industrial which resulted in a nice old-fashioned (nostalgic?) sound. Not all tracks are great, but some are. Overall a pretty nice cd in a very nice digipack.
