Released 13 April 2003. Tracklistings come from MusicBrainz. org The soundworld of Die Hautfabrik conjures Jan Svankmajer's animations: the sound of clockwork automata gaining a frenzied freedom, in particular those automata housed in belltowers and allowed to move only once every hour. The impression conveyed by both the music and of the cover design is that of outsider art; but outside of what? I don't know, but I think I like it on the outside, it's less claustrophobic, and there's more freedom - though it can be hard to reach (think of the travails of Winston Smith or THX1138).
First, let's talk about the music. It is presented as a suite in seven movements. The scope of influences runs very wide: Wagner, Art Zoyd, Tangerine Dream, Pierre Henry, and Einstürzende Neubauten, to name but the most obvious.

The cd received favourable press from BBC, The Wire, Stylus. All Music Guide and Tigersushi. On the Dandi Wind cd, the rhythms on "Umbilical Noose" and "Drawing Straws" were contributed by Planet Mu Records dance superstar Bit Meddler (of "shitmix 2000" infamy).
