Total one-off, near-indescribable privately released Swiss avant-prog journey from multi-instrumentalist and sonic explorer Victor de Bros under his Fizzè guise.  After having a little poke around the beautifully amateur Mensch recordings website - the label responsible for this greatness - details reveal that label is also a recording studio where ‘we produce without commercial concessions’ - an immediate good sign.  Previous guests include Taj Mahal Travellers, Dennis Bovell, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry++, okay so they mean business!  It’s this freeform, multi-genre, multi-faceted school of thought that underpins ‘Kulu Hatha Mamnua’.  It’s an immersive avant-ethno-prog trip through exotic and otherworldly percussion, laced with field recordings and flourishes of electronics.  Essentially the sort of record that can only be conceived and allowed to grow in a studio where financial constraints and expectations are at zero.  Threads back to the pan-European jazz melting-pot pioneered by Marc Hollander via Crammed Discs are everywhere (there’s even a cover of Aksak Maboul’s Odessa from Made To Measure 1), and in fact Hollander’s free-spirited ’77 Kamikaze masterpiece ‘Onze Danses Pour Combattre La Migraine’ is really only the direct comparison I can throw at this.  Tricky one to unravel but ultimately VERY worthy of your time.. ex-deadstock.  (NM / NM)
