The most mind bending elements of their sound are conducted through dance floor focused channels; disco breaks and rolling percussion combining with menacing synth work outs, electro sensibilities and live instrumentation to create an unholy brew that has been described variously as 'dark-disco', 'goth-disco-rock', and perhaps most tellingly of all, 'devils-disco'.
Assume their Kraut influence and its taste for analogical instruments (theremin, space echo...) & for 70's horror movie soundtrack and Italian Giallos. When you see them live, bands like Can, Silver Apples, Suicide and the Goblin are obvious inspirations for them. Hard to resist to Zombie-Zombie on stage : a drummer who alternates between Motorik rhythms and furious improvisation, screams to awake the dead, keyboard hummings, psychedelic spirit, possessed musicians and crowd in trance... the released energy is devastating, irresistible & contagious!
The music of Quack Quack isn’t easy to categorize, but take a shared spirit of improvisation and a healthy disregard for well trodden musical paths and you’re moving in the right direction. Like the great rhythm sections of James Brown, Africa 70, CAN and Led Zeppelin, Quack Quack operate right next to your heartbeat and your footsteps. They understand the importance of rhythm and use it to get the good chemicals flowing. This is music for dancing and smiling.
With a catalogue that boasts an array of ground breaking contemporary artists as well as exclusive issues of lost sound tracks and Holy Grail hip hop classics, [b]DC RECORDINGS[/b] is a label that has survived by refusing to compromise its singular and willfully idiosyncratic vision.
