Another little gem for TEB's aficionados: "Old Man Kangaroo pt.2" (1991).


During the period TEB was in Italy for the third tour (concerts in Rome, Rieti, Milan, Florence...), on February 6th, 1990, Glen Sweeney was invited by Italian avant-garde composer Fabio Capanni (leader of group called Nazca - go to http://www.myspace.com/fabiocapanni) to record in a studio in Florence, just before the gig that evening the band played at "Auditorium Flog".

With him and Glen at hand drums, also the great Amon Duul's co-founder Chris Karrer.
The track recorded, titled "Old Man Kangaroo pt. 2", it'd be been included  in a special MaSo CD titled "The Greetings Compact vol. 2" (Materiali Sonori MASO 90014) distributed in 1991.

  1. Very interesting track, thanks for sharing!
    Isn't Chris Karrer a former Amon Duul 2's member? He also played with Militia in those years, if I remember well...

  2. Si, la mia solita fretta... E' stato co-fondatore degli Amon Duul e ha collaborato con gli Embryo... Un suo disco, "Dervish Kiss", è un vero capolavoro di musica etnica ante-litteram... In quel periodo suonò coi Militia, un'ottima band (devo avere un paio di vinili da qualche parte...). Mi sono confuso con i Guru Guru perché in realtà stavo pensando agli Embryo, dato che in quegli stessi mesi la MASO ristampò in vinile il grandioso "Opal"... Correggo immediatamente l'errore...

  3. E' vero, un ottima ristampa, l'avevo comprata! Christian Burchard aveva suonato anche nel primo degli Amon Duul 2... Non sapevo di Dervish Kiss, cercherò di ascoltarlo.
    Grazie ancora, a presto :-)
