REAL AX BAND - Move your ass in time

The Real Ax Band was a young band very much stamped in the temper of its time. It mixed and matched krautrock, progressive rock, jazz, soul and Latino elements in ways that showed off influences with candour and little attempt at concealing the group's influences. In Maria Archer the group had a vocalist who sounded real when singing English, not like KrautRock's standard painful Anglo-American imitation from over somebody's weirdest rainbow. She came from Ghana. That helped. When this line-up of the Real Ax Band came together, it was a time in Germany, as anyone who lived through the period will remember, when many were still living the dream of community hard. Many bands lived in Wohngemeinschaften or Kommunen - the choice of word largely determined by social or political adherences. Some bands living in communes emulated the likes of the Grateful Dead in Haight-Ashbury or Traffic in the Berkshire countryside. Most were just flat-sharing under a more grandiose guise, sharing a living space with like-minded people, whether connected by music, art, politics or a mutual search for something better but until then... One day the Real Ax Band’s drummer, Marlon Klein, later of Dissidenten fame, went to load up the band-bus for the next gig. Mercifully, somebody had already stowed the gear and the equipment room was empty. One by one, late-risers stumbled into the Wohngemeinschaft's kitchen. They sat chatting, breakfasting, drinking coffee. Until it came out that nobody had loaded the van. With the theft of their unpaid equipment went their idealism and innocence. The theft saddled them with a bunch of debts that the small fees they could command would take years to clear. Sometimes all it takes to tip a band over the edge is one disaster. It signalled the end of the Real Ax Band. The band crumbled. Nicht Stehenbleiben/Move Your Ass In Time is all that remains of that youthful excitement. But the Real Ax Band led to still better things... OLD out of print official reissue of their sole 1977 album. Gatefold & sealed. ONLY 2 COPIES
