the new CD by the always obscure "laboratory drone/industrial" project from Bremen comes mounted on a porcelain-plate, collected over years, each plate looks different; the cover painting on the CD was made by the international acknowledged artist ROBIN CHUTER, once active with his label FOOL'S PARADISE; this object art is something we've never seen before, and if you only start hearing the soundzzz, you will be surprised (very rhythmic and harmonic).... lim. 200

Live at Maschinenfest 2017 ( Ant Zen / Raubbau )

for over two decades german act ftbpd has been promoting alcoholism in posh homes via a string of releases in various formats, and especially through their discerning live appearances. this recording captures the second maschinenfest appearance (after 2009) of the now solo trinkers: a moment of playful elation coupled with a proverbial attention to detail, performed not on stage, but rather among the audience to achieve the attention and interaction that ftbpd sound demands. ‘this is not detroit’ is clearly true for the complete and obvious absence of all things soul or techno, ftbpd is about the exploration of the bizarre and the arcane with help of heavily processed and collaged sounds, drones - and of course noise. both tracks clock in at just over 15 minutes, and both manage to keep the suspense level high throughout: ‘this is not detroit 1’ works from soothing drones over quirky psychedelia to a noisy crescendo; ‘this is not detroit 2’ kicks off with disturbing sounds of fighting and war dissolving in an eerie, anxious atmosphere - and yet more noisy sonic debris. those in the know will surely enjoy the demanding, quality experimental ambient industrial that avoids all traps of pretentiousness or verbosity, a fine addition not only for posh homes. ( ANT ZEN / RAUBBAU )

New album out now.
Jürgen Eberhard aka Feine Trinkers Bei Pinkels Daheim celebrates 25 years of his artistic activity with the first full-length album on Zoharum entitled "A Bug's Life". keen observers of our activity certainly know his name, for instance from a common vinyl 7-incher entitled "Both Sides of The Looking Glass" shared with Bisclaveret duo or from the composition "Enigmatic Visions", which appeared on a commemorative compilation "07|100|15".
"A Bug's Life" is the tenth full-length album in the discography of Feine Trinkers Bei Pinkels Daheim. It was being created, like the previous ones, for several years and is another conscious artistic statement. Seven compositions included here are of a collage nature and combine echoes of post-industrial ambient, drone music, musique concrete, field recordings and even plunderphonics. On his first studio album since "Die Legende vom Heiligen Trinker" from 2011, Jürgen Eberhard consciously continues his sonic quest on a depleted terrain and he manages to avoid traps of empty experiments. "A Bug's Life" is at the same time an atmospheric, and even accessible, album, and sonically elaborate and demanding of the listener.
The album is released in a 3-panel ecopak in a strictly limited edition of 300 copies. The cover is designed by Maciej Mehring and is based on the paintings by Maciej Nabiałek.
Release date: 1.02.2016


interpretationen eines geologischen materials und seiner symbolik

With four albums under their belt, the vinyl-only label Verlautbarung returns with their most ambitious effort yet: the 2LP + 7" compilation Stein. Here 15 artists have been invited to offer their take on the concept of Stone. The results are a mixed bag of interpretations, where some focus on the physicality and the sonic possibilities inherent in this ground material: scrapings, grinding, and rumbles. Yet others have taken a more reflective approach, where existentialist track titles evoke the hardships of mining, and the barren wastelands of such regions.

Contributions from Amph, Clew Of Theseus, Contrastate, Dieter Müh, Doroga, Enklav, Feine Trinkers Bei Pinkels Daheim, Hal Hutchinson, Irgun Z’wai Leumi, Jeph Jerman, Kristian Olsson, Mnem, Niellerade Fallibilisthorstar, Ochu and Vårtgård.

Edition of 199 copies in printed colour sleeves and 16 page full color booklet.

Released 30/11 2013.

In Bisclaveret & F.T.B.P.D. (Feine Trinkers Bei Pinkels Daheim) fanden sich zwei augenscheinlich ungleiche Formationen für eine Split 7inch mit dem Titel “both sides of the looking glass” zusammen, welche bedrohlich träumerischen Dark Ambient & verquasten Post-Industrial mit Kopfkinocharakter offenbart.

“both sindes of the looking glass” von Bisclaveret & F.T.B.P.D. stellt für den polnischen Verlag Zoharum Records, der sich in den letzten hervorragend entwickelte, die erste 7inch dar, deren Auflage 200 Exemplare umfasst, wofür Maciej Nabiałek formidables Cover kreierte, das die Unterschiedlichkeiten der A- & B-Seite perfekt wiedergibt.

Nach einem Konzert in London entstand die Idee zu “both sides of the looking glass“, auf dessen A-Seite Bisclaveret (Werwolf) mit ‘An Introducion to Reading God‘ ertönen, deren gespenstischer Dark Ambient seit Jahren für Aufsehen sorgt, den das Duo Radosław “Thorn” Murawski & Maciej “Dragos” Mehring einmal mehr in atemberaubender Dicht (mit rituellem Unterton) präsentiert. F.T.B.P.D. (Feine Trinkers Bei Pinkels Daheim), dass Post-Industrial Projekt des Wahlbremers Jürgen Eberhard, steuerte zu “both sides of the looking glass” die erdrückende Soundcollage ‘Unterhose Totalphimose‘ bei, welche psychisch labile Leute meiden sollten.


Bisclaveret & F.T.B.P.D. publizieren mit “both sides of the looking glass” ein sehr ausdrucksstarke 7inch, die durch Unterschiedlichkeit & Intensität/ Dichte auffällt – meine absolute Empfehlung! PS: Nicht nur für Fans von Bisclaveret & F.T.B.P.D. ein Tipp, sondern auch für Freunde mitreißender Dark Ambient/ Post-Industrial Sounds, deren Sammlung nach neuen Highlights lechzt.

 Review by

"Here comes new release by the Feine Trinkers bei Pinkels daheim ("Sly drinkers visiting the chique artistocratic family") with their new CD release on Belgian Silken Tofu, Die Legende Vom Heiligen Trinker (based on a story of Joseph Roth, the mysterious novelist who's best known for his family saga Radetzky March ).

Beautiful artwork on cool three-panel folder cardboard, beautiful detailed and well thought out, not one of those mass produced plastic CD's in boring boxes with get scratched after one minute. I know, it's a CD - not exactly a very elegant piece of media for many - but this is one of the few exceptions: You are holding something solid in your hands, and you can actually hold it in your hands for much much longer than those boring plastic box CD's.

There's artwork (done by Sasha Sakir), typesetting, and beautiful vocals spicing everything up:

Larisa Ruslanova (not sure who she is)
Miss Polyester (who was previously featured on the legendary Belgian ritual combo Hybryds' new project Na-Dha)

As for the music, this is something original and unusual, a well thought out pattern of soundwaves. There's always a surprise. One can hear they have matured, exploring new sounds, using turntables at various speeds, and combining it all together. This is a very enjoyable, humble and friendly release. No protest, no aggression, no frustration, no silly jokes, just the Feine Trinkers bei Pinkels as we love them. Thanks for releasing this and supporting the last remains of the DIY movement. Get it before it's gone (not sure how the edition goes, but it looks like a limited run). 

It's good, tasty and enjoyable!" ( Mr. Robin Chuter, Fool`s Paradise Records London).

FEINE TRINKERS BEI PINKELS DAHEIM, ein Name, der im Rahmen von experimentellen Ambient Konzerten oft fällt, wogegen die Anzahl der Veröffentlichungen des seit Anfang/ Mitte der 90er bestehenden Projekts (verdammt) gering erscheint, zu denen “Die Legende vom heiligen Trinker” zählt, welche das berauschte Dasein eines Alkoholikers auf faszinierende Art & Weise vor Augen führt – Wahnsinn!

Labeltreue (im Übrigen kein Muss!), für JÜRGEN EBERHARD hinter FEINE TRINKERS BEI PINKELS DAHEIM ein Fremdwort, welcher pro Verlag ein Release publiziert, das im “Fall” von “Die Legende vom heiligen Trinker” SILKEN TOFU ist, dessen Betreiber WIM PAUWELS das edle Digipack selbst designte, wofür SASHA SAKIR ein brillantes Artwork kreierte.

Ironie & Abgedrehtheit bilden den inhaltlichen Kern von FEINE TRINKERS BEI PINKELS DAHEIM, der auch auf “Die Legende vom heiligen Trinker” hervorscheint, wo JÜRGEN EBERHARD das berauschte Leben eines Alkoholikers hochnimmt, dem unser Führer im Rausch erscheint, die Frau nicht versteht und der Kiosk die Lieblingstheke beherbergt – dieser Wahnsinn gehört innerhalb unserer Gesellschaft zur Normalität, weshalb diese totale Überspitzung ebenfalls eine knallharte Sozialkritik darstellt, weil der Kreis der Betroffenen nicht abnimmt, sondern rasant wächst.

Für diese zeitlose Thematik erschuf der in Bremen ansässige Soundtüftler JÜRGEN EBERHARD einen beeindruckenden, fast beklemmenden, Soundtrack, dessen packende Strukturen aus Ambient, Elektroakustik, Noise, Industrial & Feldaufnahmen teilweise einem Hörspiel gleichen, das FEINE TRINKERS BEI PINKELS DAHEIM durch den Einsatz von Ton- wie Sprachsamples verstärkte. Insgesamt entstand mit “Die Legende vom heiligen Trinker” ein Endprodukt, wo sich Experimentierfreude & Melodiösität die Waage halten, weshalb der Einstieg in diese Welt bzw. Thematik relativ leicht fällt. Wessen Ohren sich nach Spannungskurven mit Berührungen sehnen, sollten FEINE TRINKERS BEI PINKELS DAHEIM‘s “Die Legende vom heiligen Trinker” unbedingt mit Ruhe & Muse evaluieren, worin unzählige Details auch nach dem x-ten Hördurchlauf noch auftauchen. Anspieltipp? Gesamtkunstwerk, das in Gänze erst seine volle Wirkung erzielt!


Volksdroge Alkohol verändert und zieht in den Abgrund, eine Tatsache, die JÜRGEN EBERHARD hinter FEINE TRINKERS BEI PINKELS DAHEIM mit “Die Legende vom heiligen Trinken” perfekt suggestiert – meine absolute Empfehlung! PS: Ein ganz großes & helles Licht im SILKEN TOFU Backkatalog!

Review by Raphael Feldmann / Kulturterrorismus

Reviewed by Mikko Aspa (Grunt, Freak Animal, Special Interests):
Hmm... the first track which is monstrous length of 15 minutes is dominated with electro beat. This is something what is most of the times utter turn off for me. If it resembles something what I feel is dance music or techno, it's very likely I simply can't find anything there.
After the opening piece, CD progresses into 8 more songs, where each has distinctive style. Clear synthesizer drone of 2nd track suddenly is drenches into heavily processed human choir style vocals. Suddenly this is like new age version of Deutsch Nepal! 3rd track develops ethereal new agey synth work further into later days Organum feel. All the sudden 4th and majority of 5th track are like experimental computer music. Delicate electronic sounds, without any solid humming synthesizers - until they make return in middle of 5th track. 6th track is drenched in reverb, with calm proto new-age ambient feel. Everything operates in slow harmony, slow strings, distant echoing sounds, warm electronic feel. Until it all ruptures into noisier material what in my ears sounds as sampled heavy metal and in end sampled classical music. 7th track starts noisier but ends up in ethereal and harmonic ambient. 8 track does it pretty much in reverse order. Neat offset printed 3-panel cardboard cover lists 9 tracks, yet cd has only 8. Within each track there are significant changes and I wouldn't wonder if they just missed index number at some point?
Absolute best point would be that instead of predictable dark ambient humming, Silken Tofu actually has guts to put out such a "normal" ambient cd. And perhaps the trad. harmonic calm and soothing muzak is the most successful element of this CD. I'm just certainly extremely picky what comes to this style of music. (MA)
