To Rococo Rot (drummer Ronald Lippok, bassist Stefan Schneider and electronics maestro Robert Lippok). To Rococo Rot records on City Slang, ‘veiculo’ (1997), ‘the amateur view’ (1999) and ‘music is a hungry ghost’ (2001) have been out of print for a long time. They will see a reissue as a remastered 3 CD boxset named ‘rocket road’ that comes with extensive linernotes, more than twenty bonus tracks including the two remixes by Four Tet and Daniel Miller as well as an exclusive Mira Calix rework of from dream to dusk.
Each album will also be available on vinyl again as 180g pressing, with the original tracklisting and a CD of the album plus bonus tracks.
"Kraftwerk with guitars or Trans Am without the schmaltz, To Rococo Rot provide a nice fusion of indie-rock instrumentalism and the more minimal end of armchair techno occupied by Autechre and Freeform. The group manage a near-perfect balance of elements, here, coming off neither retro nor pretentious, reserving the occasionally embarrassing artiness of a Stereolab or Tortoise for the subtlety with which they play electronic and acoustical textures off one another."
