Uhlklang, 1983

Uhlklang was a short-lived imprint run by the Swiss duo of Andy Guhl and Norbert Möslang and manufactured and distributed by the great German free jazz label FMP--the design templates of both labels were similar, but the wavy text and the owl, who winks on side 2, distinguished Uhlklang from its parent company. Guhl and Möslang were eventually known better as Voice Crack--the title of a 1984 album, which they then adapted as their own moniker--and who were usually credited with "cracked everyday electronics," a catchall for the bricolage of busted, salvaged, and repurposed electronic devices they adapted into noise-making instruments. Knack On was reissued on CD by John Corbett's Unheard Music Series label.
