I've been on a '90s Wolfgang Voigt a.k.a. Mike Ink back-catalog trip, which is a good distraction, since he's recorded under about ten trillion different aliases and has a sprawling, massive, and mind-bending list of esoteric and rare releases. These days, I've been distracting myself by wending my way through the Kreisel 99s, which you can read about here; it was this wacky Wolfgang Voigt-helmed project in 1999 that released a 7" every week for a year for a total of 52 releases. (How's that for shadowy, mysterious, single-minded obsession? Take that, Aphex Twin! You're only up to #11 with Analord, ha ha!) Right now I'm big into the acid workout that was Kreisel 99 #9, which is "Box Energy" by Crocker (a.k.a. Wolfgang), and "Silbersee (Remix)," also by Crocker. As Wolfgang Voigt aliases go, Crocker is not the best name of the bunch. You would not expect to be rocked by somebody named Crocker. Then again, Crocker is "Rocker" with a C.

I think it's time to go to bed.

this is the best series and i remember getting the heads up from forced exposure when it started. i love my Riss 'Get it On', but wouldn't mind a copy of /30 - Forever Sweet's 'Bleed'.

yes, "r.e.s.p.e.c.t." is an absolute cracker (or possibly crocker!). very very acieeed. it was recently re-released with "new jack city" on the flip.
