FRÜHE JAHRE is the first time reissue of C-Schulz’s early work from late 1980s and early ‘90s. Schulz’s first LP, 10. HOSE HORN, was introduced alongside other debut LPs from Jim O’Rourke and Frank Dommert on Dommert’s Entenpfuhl label in 1991. Combining the cathartic sounds of industrial, early techno, and innovative pop with inspiration from acousmatic, New Music, and Dada, Schulz’s music is a prime example of the Cologne experimental music scene of the time. Rhythmic delights, outlandish juxtapositions and a sustained, unresolved, aurally-fascinating tension evoke dramatic, film-like meditations. Liner notes written by Marcus Schmickler, who also co-produced many of the tracks. Remastering by Rashad Becker.
