It is not always so easy to hear the releases by Finders Keepers Records (in addition to its sub-labels) from today’s perspective and to properly judge (in case you are a critic). »Ultrissima On The Junk’s Moon«, the newest release from a band named Stabat Stable, which was by all accounts, created in France in the early 1980’s and immortalised on magnetic tape, derives its charm from it’s historicity. In the rich in detail mosaic of the history of music, it has earned its own little stone. Or to put it in a different way; who recognised that somewhere in the middle of these mosaics, a little piece was absent, in the midst of where Zeuhl, Rock-In-Opposition and the early Tape-Electronica (which in the last years was documented by a label like Minimal Wave) met, will now be cheering with laughter. »Ultrissima On The Junk’s Moon« has an initially disconcerting effect on everybody else. It is already a clash of musical worlds, when prog-rock attitude meets the cold from new wave, when sacral organ-whistles meet on post-rock riffs. First of all you won’t be invited in. But after a while you can get into the music of Stabat Stable. Suddenly you will believe in the anticipation of hearing Arthur Russell’s music in the track »Coaltar Saponine The Beef«. Or a song like »Scorpio« will appear to you like a forgotten demo-record from David Bowie, from his time in Berlin-Schöneberg. And that really isn’t the dumbest thing you can say about music.
