Founded in Cologne the early 1980s, the anarchistic formation Drums Off Chaos has continued uninterrupted to the present day. The collective of Jaki Liebezeit, Reiner Linke, Maf Retter, Manos Tsangaris and others make music centered on dynamic but still very precise rhythmic codes using carefully-selected sounds and patterns on self-constructed drums. Previously, the group considered the shared and nonrecurring experience of playing live more important than getting the music recorded. The latest release, however, is the result of a collaboration with Cologne-based musician Jens-Uwe Beyer (Popnoname). Thus, the Drums Off Chaos sound is available on record for the first time after almost 30 years (aside from an experimental singer collaboration available as a very limited CD mailorder release). Beyer -- from a generation that grew up with Wolfgang Voigt's Gas project rather than with Can -- opens the record with the beat of a gong adding irradiant sounds and elements of soft rhythms, which over time interweave seamlessly with the energetic drum sound. The slowly floating melodies and punctuated bass of Beyer convey an almost monastic intensity which underpins and reinforces the exacting rhythm of the drums. This uncommon and multi-generational clash of musicians results in peerless music that defies classification and comparison, as effects never before heard on record materialize for the first time.
