Ein Halleluja Fir Dich  (Pietbiet  1008)  1973  Germany *


Janssens, Peter - Ein Hallelujah Fur Dich


Janssens’ work is always enjoyable, even if the style appears to be fairly similar from one release to the next.  No big fuzz moves this time –  just the usual light hearted artsy electric format.  The title track and “Wir Tanzen’ have fun scampering rhythms punctuated by goofy whistle sounds.  The other unusual piece is ‘Jesus In Garden’ – a gruff bass-y percussive number heavily embellished with vocalized pig snorts.   (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
