Kedama - Live At Sunrise Studios (1976)
Meu conselho é o seguinte: Ouça esta maravilha sem fazer comparações com outras bandas!
Swiss band KEDAMA was formed in 1971 by Christian Linder (guitars, keyboards) and Richard Rothenberger (keyboards), and the band as such was finalized when drummer Peter Suter hooked up with them in 1972. In 1973 the band won a rock band contest giving them free studio time, which were used in between gigs to create and record their 1976 debut album "Live At Sunrise Studios" - a live in the studio recording where the trio played quirky instrumental numbers with references to the likes of Gentle Giant and King Crimson.
Only two years later the career of Kedama hit full brakes though. Debts were accumulating, and the changing musical climate lead to fewer people wanting to see the band perform live. After a concert with an audience of just 30 people in 1978 the band decided to call it quits.
After several years of a steadily building interest in their first album a CD reissue saw the light of day in 1999. The popularity of this second release of the album spurned a partial reunion of the band. Linder and Rothenberger got together and recorded new material, which surfaced as the self-titled CD "Kedama" in 2002.
Kedama has since recorded at least one more full length album, "Hope Is...", which have yet to see the light of day. Furthermore, material enough to fill 3 more CDs have been recorded as well, but has since been scrapped over the years as the creative duo after consideration felt that this material didn't fulfill their ambitions.
Time will have to tell whether or not any more of the material from this Swiss act will see the light of day sometime. (Progarchive)
