♫♪  Kommissar Hjuler Und Frau - “Jacob und Wilhelm Grimm”

According to artiste Kommissar Hjuler, who performs with his wife as Kommissar Hjuler Und Frau, they have made the “greatest album of the century” in Jacob und Wilheim Grimm. Check the sample to hear for yourself. It certainly does make most music we call “experimental” these days seem a bit rote, as if musicians picked up a basic set of ‘avant-garde’ rules somewhere along the way and we never really let go. Of course, Kommissar’s music has been labeled Neo-Dada, so what do I know? Feeding Tube Records claims that Jacob und Wilheim Grimm is a “hearty mix of sound poetry, musique concrète, absurdist performance and pornography” and that it’s “not always an easy sell. Add to that the group’s discography, which is approaching the 300 count, and it can become difficult to separate the wheat from the chaff.” In the spirit of dadaism I’m going to call Feeding Tube out for setting any sort of Wheat vs Chaff precedent. The wheat and the chaff are one, man.
