Slapp Happy - Sort Of LP
50th Anniversary edition. Limited to 1,000 copies.
In 1972, left-wing intellectual film critic Uwe Nettelbeck suggested to Anthony Moore that he might write some straight songs (relatively speaking), which in turn prompted Moore to invite his old school friend Peter Blegvad over to Hamburg to form the band Slapp Happy. Dagmar Krause, a young singer from Hamburg and Moore's girlfriend, joined them both on their trip to Wümme to record what was to become this album, Sort Of, using Faust as their rhythm section. In honor of this album ́s 50th anniversary the album will get a nicely remastered reissue with the newly founded Week-End Records -- the festival's inhouse label who managed to get the band together for a final reunion shows in November of 2016 and Spring of 2017.
