Remko Scha - Machine Guitars (LP, Kremlin Products, 1982)

After the all the pop music of the past days, time for something more unconventional. Remko Scha is an artist from The Netherlands who took Glenn Branca's guitar to a more extreme level. He built machines with ropes that played guitars. He also used metal brushes. Quite minimal music of static guitar playing, but creating overtones. Next to the first Minny Pops one of the most radical LPs from The Netherlands. Scha is these a professor in Amsterdam, teaching computer linguistics.
