about

The original (physical) CD was released and distributed by Materiali Sonori (Italy) in 1991. Also illegally published through Russian bootleg label Arsnova, who wrongly sold it as a "Tuxedomoon Project" (not true, although their individual members did voluntarily collaborate on the album).

Inspritation for this material came from sudden geo-political changes and a series of high impact events, that marked the times (late 1980s - early 1990s) and also the way global news was presented in the media.

Here is a quote from Materiali Sonori News (March 1991):
"Dal cappello-magico della 'Tuxedomoon-area' esce un'altro artista di grande profilo. Drem Bruinsma ha infatti alle spalle molti anni di collaborazione con Steven Brown e con gli altri membri dello storico gruppo californiano. Attravesso il suo studio di registrazione l'Echo Des Montagnes ha lavorato alla più interessante e recente produzione di molti musicisti belgi, holandesi e americani. Con lo stesso Steven Brown (e con Ivan Georgiev e Luc Van Lieshout) ha participato anche allo spettacolo 'Greenhouse Effect', l'opera "live" più completa del leader dei Tuxedomoon. Dopo due piccole (e intense) anticipazioni (il brano "A Spirit Ditty" incluso nell'edizione compact de "Zoo Story" e con "Turkish And American Blend" realizzato insieme a Bruce Geduldig per il compact-magazine "Sonora"), Drem Bruinsma propone adesso il suo primo album "Six Reels Of Joy", in exclusiva mondiale per la Materiali Sonori, coinvolgendo in questo suo progretto proprio Steven Brown, Blaine Reininger, Luc Van Lieshout, Peter Principle, Nikolas Klau, Ivan Georgiev. La produzione e i suoni sono dello stesso Drem e di Gilles Martin. Questo lavoro si propone adesso come una sorta di "instant record", dedicato alla recente guerra del Golfo. Il disco propone infatti una interessante attualità narrativa con brani come "Nightflight", "The Global Village", "Oil Dance", Radio Baghdad", "Radio Tunis", "Nayee". La musica è una eccezionale miscela di influenze, un viaggio elettronico ed acustico attraverso molte culture diverse: "Six Reels Of Joy" è una lettura attualissima della "world music", una sintesi delle infinite possibilità della musica."

Track Name: A Shotgun Wedding
Bye Bye uncle Karl,
Pack up your beard and go,
For each according to his need,
To each according to his greed,
That's all you need to know....
Track Name: And She Forgot
and she forgot
the stars the moon and sun
and she forgot
the blue above the trees
and she forgot
the dells where waters run
and she forgot
the chilly aurumn breeze
she had no knowledge when the day was done.
