Subkraut: U-Boats Willkommen Hier (2012)

R.A.I.G., R073, CD link vespero_2012b[1]"A German bird of prey had been carved into the rock above the submarine dock, but Morris had used a kosher salami to blast away the swastika in its talons. Likewise a yellowed banner announcing 'U-Boats Willkommen Hier' had been scorched with lasers, and a stack of crates and steel drums stamped with the SS thunderbolt had served as the bull's-eye for numerous whipped-cream targeting experiments." – from "Sewer, Gas & Electric: The Public Works Trilogy" by Matt Ruff (Atlantic Monthly Press, 1997). The 4th VESPERO's official album, "Subkraut: U-Boats Willkommen Hier" is a conceptual framework for six instrumental kraut-rock songs which are inspired by Russian Futurism of the early 20th century, German musical underground of the 70's, modern American fiction writers, as well as mysteries of the Great Ocean still not completely explained by mankind.
