Grønvirke (LP, Gay Records, 1982)
Before you think I'm turning to just Dutch music and with some grief over Rasmussen's kick out of the Tour de France, today something from Denmark. Grønvirkewas duo of Sten Jorgensen on cornet and vocal and Freddy Frank on Electronica and tapes. That's about all I know, besides that according to Graf Haufen's magazine Die Katastrophe (issue 12, 1984) Freddy commite suicide. The LP here says 'mini LP 45 rpm' on the cover but on the insert the sticker says 'play at 33 rpm'. The name of the label is a bit hard to read in the hand writing on the cover, but I think it's Gay Records. It's great slow Cabaret Voltaire music circa their 'Mantras' pieces.
