Anima

The 'Anima' sound was extreme for sure: a very spontaneous music, close to extreme free jazz, but lacking the academic approach of this genre. Paul And Limpe Fuchs' (aka Anima Sound) music was more primitive in a way, full of screams, goons, weird sounds and much percussion.

Underground Altena (LP)
Alga Marghen returns with an absolute stunner, the LP “Underground Altena”, comprising a never before heard or released series of recordings capturing Anima - the duo of Limpe Fuchs and Paul Fuchs - in 1973. Largely rendered on a striking array of instruments, invented and played by the couple, its otherworldly, visionary sounds upend nearly every perception held about underground music transpiring in Germany during this period. Wild, wonderful, truly free, and inspiring as records come.

Der Regt Mich Auf / A Controversy
Based around the married couple Paul and Limpe Fuchs, the group Anima, also known as Anima-Sound, was one of the most radically avant-garde and creative groups to emerge from the thriving Krautrock scene of Munich at the end of the 1960s. In fact, their improvised atonal sounds and unconventional instrumentation is much closer to the spirit of experimental free jazz than anything remotely close to rock music. The Fuchs began in the late '60s as part of the counterculture at the time. Adding to t…

Musik Für Alle
Rare private press Krautrock from Paul and Limpe Fuch's Anima Sound – featuring one long improvisational piece on each side – oddly haunting and strangely beautiful! Raw home made percussion, off kilter melodies and really effective vocals make this a genuinely fascinating set that's surprisingly effective. Made while the duo was touring Germany and performing on a wagon they used as a stage, pulled throughout the country by a tractor!

anima
Reissue of this classic outsider freak-out album, first issued by Pilz in 1972, featuring the duo of Paul & Limpe Fuchs (vocals, electronics, zither, percussion, drums, Fuchshorn, etc.). Their 2nd album and a classic example of 70s improvisational madness, highly peaked. "Anima were an adventurous German trio who liked to take jazz music to the extreme. On this album they were joined by Austrian avant-gardist Friedrich Gulda, with whom they recorded two studio jamming sessions. Nothing was decid…

Musik fur alle
Paul and limpe Fuchs music, better known as Anima, represents the most original and obscure event among German Kraut Rock. Here they play a wonderful and very inspired duet on Paul Fuch's self-built instruments with the pot-production collaboration of Will Neubauer's Echolette Ringmodulater. Privately issued on LP record in 1972 for the artists' own label Altepfarhof, these two 17 minute long improvisations titled 'n da da uum da' and 'traktor go go go' can surely be considered as one of the bes…
