„I go on a trip.
With a sack on my back.
With a pack of cigarettes,
And a Flute in my pocket.
When I come to a big old cedar
I rest in the dark shadow under the tree.
Then I smoke a cigarette
Made by a monopolistic capitalist.
To the smoke, smelling of modern society,
How do you react, Old Tree?“
„Tomorrow is another day.
Because I believe it,
I set up the barricades.
How much I'm passionate,
To whom should I tell?“
ALLIGATOR GOZAIMASU is the debut album of our multi-faced art group which crosses all separators. It is the first record release on the Munich based underground label RagRec (September 2016). It is heartily recommend by the British avant-garde magazine WIRE and by ChicksOnSpeed records.
The music and art group ALLIGATOR GOZAIMASU was started by the Munich based duo beißpony in 2014 (www.beisspony.com). Artists and musicians from Munich, Berlin, Cape Town (South Africa), Ivano Frankivsk (Ukraine), Kailua-Kona (Hawaii), Oxford (UK), São Paulo (Brasilien), Sapporo (Japan) and Tokyo (Japan) are part of the vibrant exchange.
The album consists of 17 tracks which are mostly based on a public recording session which took place at the Import Export. In September 2015 Aoi Swimming from Tokyo was invited to Munich. Together with local residents, musicians, artists and filmmakers she recorded a wide range of experimental sound and text files. Based on these files the art and music group ALLIGATOR GOZAIMASU composed 17 album tracks.
Just imagine an amplified tea ceremony with diy punk spirit, no fear of genre boundaries and dissonances and a fierce love for minimal sound experiments.
