Cassingle #3 – Harald Sack Ziegler [SPT05]

Categories: Releases

25 Artists. 25 C-5 (that’s 2:30 per side) cassettes with two tracks (exclusive B-side). Strictly limited to 10 hand-dubbed copies each. Custom design. 

superpolar Taïps proudly presents the third release of its Cassette Single series.  superpolar.org/2020/10/20/the-spt-cassingle-series/

The number of his entries on discogs is 49 – in reality there are innumerable and probably half of them are cassettes or other obscure formats such as a (CD-sized 5″) vinyl single called “See Dee”. To keep it short: Harald Sack Ziegler – or simply “Sack” – is a lo-fi experimental trash pop/punk legend. He is by no means just a solo artist, as he has already worked with musicians like E*Rock (Sack & E*Rock), FS Blumm (Sack & Blumm), Mouse on Mars and many more. Harald studied orchestral music and is a master of French horn, guitar, drums and toy instruments – but rarely uses them as inventors usually intended. 

With Ahornschraube (“maple screw”) and Blechriff (“brass riff”), Harald provides two tracks which have his main instrument – the French horn – at the centre, albeit heavily processed and sometimes literally chopped up. And, as always, to listen with pleasure.
