Getting more and more involved with the music on Turtle
Records, this stylistic boundaries-denying label that records
music which simply deserves to be recorded and listened to,
I longed for some electric guitar rock and some exciting and/or
moving pop tunes. Since it is a Dutch label, why not pick a band from the neighbourhood? The way Turtle records music—live to two tracks, creating the tonal and spatial balance by playing instead of a studiomix, the choice was immediately narrowed down seriously. In fact, I could think of only one group up to the task. Sjako! has been around for a while. They played the last two decades of the last century. This album is their first statement of the next. The group came back to its original line up of bass, drums and guitar, and decided to try an unusual recording that fits the label. Their new music was only rehearsed briefly and played with lots of room for experiment and improvisation. Call it a jazz approach.
