Founded in Cologne the early 1980s, the anarchistic formation Drums Off Chaos has continued uninterrupted to the present day. The collective of Jaki Liebezeit, Reiner Linke, Maf Retter, Manos Tsangaris and others make music centered on dynamic but still very precise rhythmic codes using carefully selected sounds and patterns on self-constructed drums. Previously, the group considered the shared and nonrecurring experience of playing live more important than getting the music recorded. The latest release however is the result of a collaboration with Cologne-based musician Jens-Uwe Beyer. Thus, the Drums Off Chaos sound is available on record for the first time after almost 30 years!
