After a long period of silence on the recordings front, Wonkystuff are proud to present a new recording from neuschlaufen – a sprawling epic with touchpoints in ambient, jazz, krautrock and the spaces between them.
What do Neuschlaufen do?– C. Nosnibor (Aural Aggravation)
simultaneously tense and mellow, an amalgamation of so many disparate elements that renders it difficult to place. And that’s all the more reason to rate this effort, that broadly sits in the brackets of avant-garde, experimental, jazz, and even post-rock and math-rock, albeit at their most minimal and most deconstructed. And that is what they do.
Two of York’s noisiest bands become one for an evening of improvised music at the Woolpack. The two bands feature members of Wharf Street Galaxy Band, Fat Spatula, Percy, Broadkast Ritual, Pink Candle, Namke Communications plus more.
Sherbet Flies vs. Neuschlaufen will be a one-off experience so come on down if you’re curious as to what strange noises will arise! (It’s free entry!)
Recorded live at Wharf Chambers, wonkystuff have rush-released this important piece of repetition.

The first wonkystuff release pairs live recordings from neuschlaufen and Orlando Ferguson on a split cassette release. Both recordings were made live at the Woolpack Inn (York). neuschlaufen’s effort is typically raw, straight-to-stereo; Orlando Ferguson take a more measured approach to create a soundtrack for a hidden horror movie.
First edition of 9 copies in numbered, handmade cardboard box.
The neuschlaufen/Orlando Ferguson split cassette, displaying the label’s premier catalogue number contains a track by each act, each with a running time around the 15-minute mark. Neuschlafen’s ‘Repetitive Strain (edit) is a thumping psychedelic jam centred around a relentless motorik beat and looping bassline. Orlando Ferguson, meanwhile, offer an eerily atmospheric work that drifts ominously. A piece that would comfortably sit on the soundtrack to a sci-fi movie, it conjures images of alien landscapes and of rocks drifting in space.
