Harald Sack Ziegler Punkt
- Words: James Jung
- Label: Staubgold
One half of child‘s-play-pop purveyors Sack & Blumm, as well as a frequent Mouse On Mars collaborator, German tape scene pillar Harald Sack Ziegler‘s scatterbrained solo sound seems to hail from a toy workshop where punk, ska, electronic, and folk music compete for equal time on the hi-fi. Punkt, a 22-track album comprising the illustrious Cologne-based musician‘s previously vinyl/cassette-only work, is a frothy collection of wonkalicious woodwinds, slapstick samples, funk snippets, crashing drums, and steely guitars all stamped with Ziegler‘s distinctively oscillating vocals. A frantic romp indeed, Ziegler succeeds by imbuing every nook and cranny of his sound with a quirky, ear-perking catchiness.
