I Didn't Mean To Interrupt Your Beautiful Moment

by Kinski

supported by

neu-mann An unbroken, near-subliminal improvisation exploring the more abstract, ambient side of a sometimes very loud guitar band. Press the play button, and suddenly we're back in divided Berlin circa 1970, absorbing the noises created by a generation of artists who rejected traditional instruments and arrangements.


"Kinski's contribution to Three Lobed Recordings' Modern Containment series is much more in line with the band's live alter ego Herzog, where they eschew the frenetic, hotwired Motorik music that helped make their name in favor of dark, moody improvisation. This side was first heard on a full album with Don't Climb On And Take The Holy Water, and to a large extent I Didn't Mean To Interrupt Your Beautiful Moment is a logical sequel to that release, though if anything it's even more haunted and restrained. Recorded and released as one 40-minute track, the album begins with the gentlest yet still disturbing cycle of feedback after echo, mere looping tones rising and falling, with occasional extra parts softly floating through the reverb. At about eight minutes in the piece transforms into free-floating improvisation of the most minimal kind, quiet, barely changing frequencies, then starting to lead rapidly into a much more active collage of beatless rhythms suggesting prime Main without the unearthly psychosis. The still, restrained hush of the performance remains paramount, however, and from there the remainder of the piece subtly oscillates between near-silent chill and occasionally louder swells of sound -- never remotely approaching a brawling explosion, but upping the tension every time they recur, as much as the near total silences do in a completely complementary but opposite style. It's a quietly masterful performance that emphasizes dynamics in a way few rock bands try and do, carried out elegantly." [Ned Raggett -All Music Guide]
