GAFFERS- dear hiwatt

What has started with the 1997 Gaffers debut album "Rotor Slow Rotor Fast" as a refreshing noisy version of LoFi Pop played by a band and has been brillantly reviewed in the German music-press (and entirely fucked by it's distributor back then) has developed into a mature and outstanding product. The changes in line-up and production methods have taken a healthy influence on this exceptional musical character. The result is convincing: electronics have taken a bigger place in the Gaffers' world. Sounds and samples from forgotten discs have been filtered and led into two hands of wonderful popmusic. Popsongs never endangering themselves to be too pleasing. Listening to this album means diving into an utmost exciting soundworld.
They're live-appearances are even more of a thrill: in the unusual line-up drums (Dino Murolo) and bassguitar/vocals/samples & loops (all done by beattie) the gaffers are probably one of the most interesting european live-bands to be currently heard. We're talking about an equally visual as accoustic happening between psychedelic electronics, breaking pop/song-structures and even some aspects of kraut-rock. "Dear Hiwatt" is polarising - there is no "well, ok" or "fairly good". On top of that you will hear an at least surprising version of Cat Stevens' "Sad Lisa". Amazing!
