Die Knodel - Panorama

Third and final album by the band themselves (one final album, a collaboration with Amy Denio followed). "Die Kndel have redefined Austrian blasmusik (brass-band music), a genre that seems to be caged in commercial kitsch settings reinforcing the German/Austrian clich of lederhosen boys and dirndl girls constantly drinking beer and eating sauerkraut. No serious music lover ever expected this type of music to have some creative potential, and rather than reviving an artistic corpse, Die Kndel have fathered a sort of post-modern blasmusik for the new millenium. There are traditional rhythms of Austrian folk-music which lend the base for all sorts of exciting sound experiments involving the extensive band lineup of wind and string instruments."- Frank Eisenhuth/All Music Guide
