THE WIRE (issue 254 April 2005)
Fjernsyn Fjernsyn, founded in Copenhagen in
2001, are Andreas Führer and Tobias Fuglsang on
guitars, Johs Lund on saxes and Toke Tietze
Mortensen on drums and electronics. With roots in
free jazz, avant rock, noise and droneform, their
debut, they say, features "supersounding rock 'n'
roll guitar riffs poundering to the skies at 100
mph and melodic contemporary chance music".
Tracks are simply numbert "Nr 1" to "NR 11".
There´s melody alongside and sometimes on top
of the pounding riffs, though the quiet plagency
of "Nr 4" for sax/guitar duet allows Lund to take a
rest from squalls of overblowing. Very stimulating.
