A joyous combination of Christoph Heemann ,Andreas Martin , EK, The Silverman and Elke Skelter. A handful of sessions in a small Aachen studio (1989) produced a wealth of music and to this day I regret never being able to find that cassette with "Song" on it - in fact Mimir's ONLY song with lyrics. Sadly lost I'm afraid.
Still there are treasures to behold here even if this first version released as a gatefold double vinyl by the Flabbergast label was smartly trumped years later when Christoph remixed it with such glorious results.
All pieces were improvised onto 8 tracks although sometimes a concept was discussed before the microphones were plugged in. Christoph would then work on the tapes for several months while the rest of us would wait for the magic words, "I think it may be ready now".
Contrary to popular belief, the 3 Mimir albums (in their latest incarnations) ARE still available on cd from: www.dragcity.com/products/mimir
I strongly recommend a visit to Christoph's own website where it's possible to buy his music directly:http://www.christophheemann.de/
The music of Andreas is harder to track down but keep your eyes peeled for the wonderful 10" "Doppelpunkt Vor Ort" on Robot Records and his self-released CDR , "Live Im Loft"
