The band "Extended Versions" was a duo of tall, scary, grimy Austrian leftists (Christof Kurzmann and Helmut Heiland) who made a raucous noise with scratchy guitar, fuzz bass, soprano sax, flute and an overtaxed drum machine. The were influenced by "Suicide" and "The Velvet Underground", and sounded like a less-patient "39 Clocks".
As "The More Extended Versions" they released a great cooperation CD with "Cpt. Kirk &.", a band from Hamburg. It was a Robert Wyatt tribute, but it also had Cypress Hill and Epic Soundtracks covers and other stuff which they associated with Wyatt. It was one of those both political and cultural informed projects back in the 90ies of the last century, when leftist activists and cultural protagonists tried to find a mutual way in opposition to the growing nationalism and racism in Germany. Loved this album in those days and listening to it now is still a pleasure. A worthy and intelligent supplement to the discography of Robert Wyatt.
