More Info:

ASH RA TEMPEL, the veterans of the German "Berlin School", gained worldwide recognition with their album releases 1971-1973. Their self-titled debut-album from1971, in the line-up Hartmut Enke (bass), Manuel Göttsching (guitar), Klaus Schulze (drums), radically deconstructed elements of Rock and Blues, as it was combining electronic sounds to encourage new listening habits. Whilst Göttsching and Schulze later followed their solo careers, they always stayed friends and, over the decades, showed their musical solidarity in collaborations, with innovative electronics and guitar. But it was only in 2000, when they decided for this short intermezzo to perform together again under the Ash Ra Tempel banner. Julian Cope (author of "Krautrock-Sampler") had invited Göttsching to his "Cornucopia Festival" in London, and the two musicians took the offer as a great opportunity for a one-time reunion concert at the Royal Festival Hall on April 2, 2000. Preparing the music for this the concert had also led to a new studio album recording entitled "Friendship". Both of the recordings, the studio album as well as the live recording from the London concert "Gin Rosé", had been originally released in 2000 in a small edition, which was sold out very soon. The studio-album "Friendship" had already been re-released in 2014 (CD). Now, and due to the many requests, here it is again - after 20 years, the re-release of the long-awaited live-album "Gin Rosé". Göttsching and Schulze blend tradition and vision, and they do not simply reanimate ideas of the 1970ies. The spirit of this unique liaison is reflected in every single note of this still up-to-date concert, showing these two musicians playing joyful, familiar and undeterred.
