When VON SPAR made their critically acclaimed entrance in the pop circuit in 2003, they were regarded as the German answer to the post-punk/no-wave-renaissance. But their debut was more a clever parody about ‘80s-style-hipster-bands. In the meantime the former trio grew to a five-piece band, which now (three years later and wiser) returns with an uncompromising album that gets ahead of all expectations. It will surprise their audience and critics and maybe leave them confused at first. Detached from the usual style issues Von Spar have exorcised the Zeitgeist and overtaken the discourse. There is no scheme. Anything goes.
