STOP PRESS!! As per April 2017 we have a limited amount of the repressing of this modern classic…
CONDOR GRUPPE formed in 2012 around two friends living in Antwerp, Jan and Michiel. Looking for a way to express their shared love for obscure Italian 70’s soundtracks, spaghetti westerns, surf‐music, worldgrooves and krautrock, they teamed up with Krist Torfs, Kris Delacourt and Milan Warmoeskerken, three well talented musicians.
The album, called LATITUDS DEL CAVALL, will be released as an LP and CD on Condor
Men Records, the band’s own label. The record contains 9 exotica fueled songs which echoe
the sound of an intoxicated ride through the desert, an oriental excursion by night and a
fuzzy spaced out guitar, all of these elements backed by a solid and groovy rhythm section,
keeping you headnodding and stomping on hot, sweaty nights.
The result is a diverse and adventurous trip throuh music history and th eband’s own dusty
record shelves, going from Arthur Lyman to Ennio Morricone and the mighty Can.
“Just like a little child pulling his balloon back to earth while walking around exploring”, that
is Condor Gruppe music… Features appearances from Elko Blijweert (Dead Man Ray, Rudy Trouve Septet, Tip Toe Topic) and Duke Garwood. Mastered by the wonderful Uwe Teichert.
