L'eccezionale concerto degli Slapp Happy assieme ad alcuni dei FaUSt, in programma questa sera al Week-End Festival a Colonia, è accompagnato dalla tempestiva ristampa degli album Sort Of e Acnalbasac Noom in speciali edizioni limitate a cura dell'amburghese Tapete Records. E da un messaggio di buon augurio che riporta il commento di tre loro illustrissimi fiancheggiatori: Robert Wyatt, Brian Eno e John Peel.

On the special invitation of Week-End Fest, the avant-garde pop band Slapp Happy will play their first concert for 16 years and will be accompanied on this rare occasion by Krautrock legends Faust. British artist Anthony Moore started the pop project in Hamburg in 1972. Together with German Dagmar Krause and American Peter Blegvad, Moore played enchanting songs somewhere between The Pentangle and The Velvet Underground. Most of the songs were carried by Dagmar Krause’s inimitable voice. Just as on the first two albums 'Sort Of' and 'Casablanca Moon' (which was first released in 1980 in its original version as 'Acnalbasac Noom'), the Krautrock giants Faust will support Slapp Happy in Cologne.
