for more than ten years GREAT DYNAMO has been homerecording. melting big meldodies, swinging loops, singing guitars and sawing organs to what some people may consider as contemporary pop music. using every kind of track recorder he could get hold of he is standing in the line of lo-fi artists like the tall dwarfs, sebadoh, liz phair and daniel johnston. but he is taking a step beyond, trying to get a real pop sound out of some debased equipment.

GREAT DYNAMO is singing about the crazy times trying to catch simple lost things with a rope. and – despite being german – he is doing that in english. because english ist he language of POP. the songs work by GREAT DYNAMOs unique voice and songwriting. even if psychotic noise attacks at times seem to cover them completely: in the end it is always the singer and his song who win.

recently the düsseldorf indie label BABIES DIKTATUR released “THE AVERAGE GENIUS EPs“. a full length record with 14 selected homerecordings. it is split in a relatively harmonic „CATCHING SIMPLE LOST SONGS WITH A ROPE“ – EP on the a-side and a more raw „POOLSHARK SINGALONGS“-EP on side b. and, yes: it comes in real solid vinyl and with breathtaking wonderful artwork.
