Is anybody know the following CD (quoted from It as
always been a mistery and I just would like to know where to get it!

Runzelstirn and Gurgelstock

From Switzerland. The most violent musique concrète ever made. Happened mostly
during late ’80s and early ’90s noise from Japan explosion, but was not
anything like. Opposite in fact. The use of silence never worked as well as
this. Rudolph is an unsung hero, and you should be afraid of him. He's
the GG Allin of "electronic music." But don't write it off as shock. Even
though Mr. R has been known to smear shit on the walls of art galleries,
R&G is no mere shock-value schlock. Anything the man does wields memorable
power. Besides being frightening enough to cause people only be able to laugh
nervously in reaction during performances, he really has created some of the
most interesting and effective splice recordings/compositions on earth. At this
point you'll have to ask the right people to find R&G. Europeans will fare
better than Americans. Other related projects include the Shimpfluch Gruppe,
which is also "good" — but nothing quite compares with this R&G, or the one
with the horse-chair on the cover.
