Schickert made it all: art, echo, guitar, voice. (The paintings are fantastic.) This is something you can imagine someone doing now with a Line 6 pedal at a basement noise set, which is not a knock on 2022 or 1974. Schickert did not care about your tiny expectations! He goes off, and balances a truly intense middle freakout with some desolate rows before and after. Small, alone, but one of krautrock’s richest oddities. Do not pass this by.
