It came totally out of the blue. I knew nothing about it's existence or the fact that our lord, the great Mark E Smith had even been dabbling with other projects outside The Fall. I guess this just makes me dumb because everyone else seems well clued up about it.
Cast you mind back if you will to 2005 when Mark E Smith teamed up with Mouse On Mars to create the rather snazzy "Wipe The Sound", well Von Sudenfed is Jan and Andy from Mouse On Mars along with our very own Mr Smith. The opening track "Fledermaus Can't Get It" sets the electronic scene and the whole thing just works. I've often thought that Mark E Smith and electronic music go hand in hand and the experiments which The Fall carried out in the early 90's were some of their finest work.
Von Sudenfed are going to be playing some dates this summer and are already talking about arranging some studio time for next year to record the second album.
This will do just fine till then.
The album "Tromatic Reflexxions" is out now and can be purchased HERE
