Wolfgang Orschakowski is one of the free spirits of the krautrock underground. Hailing from Hamburg, he has been producing music, paintings and all other kinds of artistic projects for the past four decades. Zippo Zetterlink In The Poor Sun, originally issued in 1971 as a self produced private pressing that is nowadays impossible to find unless you are ready to pay some amounts of money in the collector's market, was his first ever release. It is at long last reissued on vinyl, a properly licensed edition done with the cooperation of Wolfgang himself and housed in an exact repro of its original sleeve.
The music contained herein could be taken as the seed to Orschakowski's music world: free-form underground sounds, a way-out trip through expansive guitar riffs and strumming, hypnotic bass lines, killer drum breakbeats and elusive percussion, plus the occasional vocal and some blues freak-out and psychedelic effects. It will appeal to fans of other kraut classics like Amon Düül's Psychedelic Underground and early Guru Guru. The Wah Wah reissue comes complete with a fantastic bonus CD featuring another of Wolfgang's projects: the acid psych music of WoOZ. Housed in a fold-out poster sleeve with liner notes and photos.
