16-17/ When All Else Fails
Long-awaited double-CD reissue of the 1st 3 releases by Swiss punk-jazz pioneers 16-17 . This collection documents the first incarnation of the band, which consisted of Alex Buess (Ice, God, Cortex) on sax, Markus Kneubühler on guitar and electronics, and Nicolas Knut Remond (Voice Crack) on drums. It includes the 1st 2 albums (16-17 from 1986 and When All Else Fails from 1989) and the very limited cassette-only Hardkore & Buffbunker EP from 1984, all freshly remastered by specialist Weasel Walter. 18 tracks (90min) of pure fury, that will certainly appeal to fans of God, Painkiller, Borbetomagus, The Flying Luttenbachers, etc...
