OM (Leimgruber / Doran / Burri / Studer): Willisau (Intakt)
Label: Intakt    
Released in: Switzerland    


"The band is cult. Because of their history and because of their playing. They took off eruptively from Lucerne into the world, and from the beginning the four musicians concocted with enormous vitality things that seems to be incompatible: the energy of rock music with the power of free improvisation. OM found a musically sensible common ground for the experiences of a young generation that had been electrified by Jimi Hendrix, fascinated by John Coltrane and inspired by Free Jazz. OM put rock music into spontaneous musical processes with uncertain endings.

OM's coming together not by chance but imperatively. Their band history lasted ten years, from 1972 until 1982, and now they're not simply continuing it after a long pause. It's more like the forces of nature are re-igniting it. With burning devotion to their playing and overwhelming lust for risk, today even more radically than ever. Unconditionally, not accepting anything but gestures of the authentic."-Bert Noglik, Liner Notes
