"Arbeit, Färber, zeitblom have been collaborating under the name Automat since the end of 2011. Their debut album features Lydia Lunch, Genesis Breyer P-Orridge & Blixa Bargeld. A Berlin Affair. Just to untangle the threads: Jochen Arbeit, the guitarist who came to world prominence with Die Haut and Einstürzende Neubauten; Achim Färber, a sought-after drummer with the likes of Project Pitchfork, Prag or Phillip Boa; and finally the bassist zeitblom, known from Sovetskoe Foto and through his award winning radio play works, especially in collaboration with author/publisher Michael Farin. Automat, a constant groooove. An album, as you would imagine flying to be if you have never flown: a steady glide from leaving the apartment to reaching the destination. No waiting, no queuing, no turbulence; a smooth check-in, easy border controls, unhindered boarding. Take a seat and take off. Automat tells of Berlin, once a city with four airports. Three narratives - of a lake with a menacing name, of an enchanted mountain, of strange roads - feature within Automat's otherwise instrumental epic. Three guests, three additional voices and storytellers to speak to us: Lydia Lunch, Genesis Breyer P-Orridge and Blixa Bargeld. Chimera of Transgression. Guests, yes, but actually they are much more: old acquaintances, good friends, trusted colleagues." (label info) 180gram vinyl, with download code
