"Brokdorf Kantate" is an interesting avantgarde-polit rock concept album supporting the movment against the nuclear plant in Brokdorf. "Kernbeisser" was basically the same band as "HerrGottSax", known for just this album, a curious 1979 Polit-rock conceptual oddity which is largely the project of Büdi Siebert using lyrics by the German anarchist writer Peter Paul Zahl.
"Brokdorf Kantate" was recorded in 1979 at "Tonstudio Zuckerfabrik" in Stuttgart and released on the label Eigelstein Musicproduktion, which was a part of the West German alternative culture. The album was produced by Büdi Siebert, memeber of the "Poesie und Musik"-project. He is a German multi-instumentalist, composer and producer, he plays reeds, flutes, percussion, keyboards and guitar. He has been active since the early 1970s, was a producer for Eigelstein Musikproduktion, and from 1998 to 2003 he was teacher for film music at the Filmakademie in Ludwigsburg. Büdi Siebert is responsible for some of the most beautiful advanced German fusion that can be heard with his two records "Hmm" in 1983 and HerrGottSax's "Seibold Seiergesichts Sündige Saxofone" from 1981.
The folks of http://progressreview.blogspot.de wrote about this album:
"What I love the most about this record is that flows from beginning to end as a seamless whole, like an oratorio conceived all in one bout with the same feeling and tone throughout. Really quite a masterpiece, so why so forgotten?"
