Betreutesproggen Review

Adios cover

Das Rad? Strewwelpeter? Titles like ‘Eisblume’ or ‘Tiefes Blau’? Just looking at the cover and the band name would lead you completely on the wrong track. Because behind the name and optical mystery hides a trio from Sheffield, England, which turns completely to the experimental and “not always easy to appreciate” tones. Nick Robinson (guitar, keyboards, […]

Adios review: Kulturni magazin

Adios cover

Wow, the Wheel is treading! Despite all the strange attributes of noise, flight, improvisation, etc. it all comes together in a hellishly shaped sense! The wheel = wheel. Martin Archer prepared it nicely for us. Perhaps he will never get involved in the publishing deeds of his Discus Music. Whether he releases unique recordings by […]

We had a special guest at our last recording sessions…

Guest vocals on DR3

pete rophone

We’re delighted that Peter Rophone will contribute to our next album (as yet untitled). He has an extraordinary voice, which I think bears comparison to the late Jeff Buckley. We’ve sent him a suitably spacious piece and asked him to work his magic. Can’t wait to hear what he comes up with! Here’s a track […]

Acid Dragon review (French magazine)

Adios cover

Das Rad is a trio comprising guitarist Nick Robinson, drummer Steve Dinsdale and Martin Archer on reeds, all three contributing keyboards and electronics. ‘Adios Al Futuro’ is an album you grow into, a shimmering, ethereal free-form expressionist music with occasional voices and enough ‘hooks’ to pull the listener in. The sax, echoed by guitar, on […]

Test-cuttings!

Our lathe-man Jon has sent these short clips of the test cuts (not presses!) in action. It’s sounding great! Not too late to order one before they sell out. http://dasrad.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/11/vinyl1.mp4http://dasrad.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/11/vinyl2.mp4

All About Jazz review

Adios cover

This UK-based band’s follow-up to its self-titled 2019 release is a tad less experimental and more grounded in progressive rock and krautrock, aptly called out in the press release. It is an acoustic-electric offering often sweetened by Martin Archer’s wistful sax lines, slightly tinged with studio echo to provide a little depth. Moreover, many of […]
