about

On the first day of the planned recording session it started to snow. The snowfall continues, but we still move all our things to Martin Valley in Zwickau, where the cottage of Šváb family is. From the road to the cottage it is still about 400 meters through the forest. It is totally impassable in such a heavy snowfall. We carry the keyboards, computer, speakers and drums on our backs like sherpas. Later, in the shed, we will find the remains of a big sledge onto which we nail a large wooden crate and which we use to move everything through the snowy forest. The snow falls throughout the rest of our stay at the cottage.

about

B4 Liberecký, Czech Republic

B4 is probably the only Czech music group actively engaged in krautrock. Studio recordings and live performances by groups vary widely, as in cases of CAN or Nurse With Wound they are more streams of wild improvisation. According the British band The Bays, it can be described using the motto "performance is the product."

Personnel:
Freudl/Kropáček/Procházka/Žďárský
