Kulturterrorismus review of Fools and Orphans! April ’09



An emotional homage to the dear beast!

VÖ: 2009 label: Kalinkaland record

Category: Gothic, Pop, classical period

In the case of Kalinkaland the bent consumer shank may look forward record publications, which Harald Löwy (Chandeen) gives the light of the world, exclusively to extremely high-quality material, why Jo Gabriel gives the American multi-talent from the label repertoire, a successful conception with the CD “Fools and Orphans” after the Vorgängeroeuvre “Iceland” from 2005. Those new Yorkerin publishes actively clay/tone art, which offers a sensitive symbiosis from Gothic & Pop since 2003, which with classical element airs accentuation finds and itself fast embodied in the spirit.

Women are already amusing natures, otherwise they became their animals any longer do not love than their partners, to be why so some man wishes himself, a horse or a cat – no joke! The American Jo Gabriel seems to also belong these before described groups of women, otherwise “Fools and Orphans” would not be sentimental homage to its deceased cat Angeline (alias Victorine), which belonged to the race Abyssinian, which originally originates from Egypt. Also David Tibet (Current93) presented similar musical processings, where those likewise stood for consumer shank before the choice: “Kitsch – or no? ” might lie, with Jo Gabriel the answer also in the eye of the viewer, since it speaks the topic partially very daringly. To the better view a text quotation from the TRACK `How The Devils of case in Love’:

This is how the devil if
This is how he if into love
The devil if into love you lake
Oh Victorine, Oh Victorine,
You buried ME, alive


Wave I can’t breathe without you here
It’s NO good without you here
I don’t know why you’re emergency here…

Those, which favor moving like dragging along texts with emotions purely, get these from Jo Gabriel on “Fools and Orphans” kredenzt – very finely!

The Frontcover makes a fuss a photograph of the fig. “RK the Crossroads” (original title: Tienhaarassa) from the year 1896 of that Finnish exception painter Hugo Simberg (1873 – 1917), which in the Kunstmuseum Ateneum in Helsinki (Finland) hangs.

The one which can be heard the clay/tone art on the long player “Fools and Orphans”, might seem to European coined/shaped Gehörgängen first quite uncommonly, but after some hearing runs to more, into the spell to pull, since Jo Gabriel a extravagante Melange revealed, which arouses Gothic, Pop and classical period combined & the appearance, as if the Mr. matte Howden (seven) and Flavio Rivabella (the acquaintance post office manufacturer Trompeter) her fingers in the play would have had. This work brought the versatile musician in Jo Gabriel (piano, singing, key board, boat operator piano) with the following participants: Linda Mackley (Percussion), matt Turner (cello), Marks of Urness (bass) Stephanie Rearick (trumpet), Hannah Fury (singing) and Jeff Ladd (singing), whereby the synthesis of the arts lights up very variedly from the boxes & receives a special charm. Bent listener circles, which argue primarily with the fastidious releases as from matt Howden (seven), should test absolutely Jo Gabriel once, those in the special one by their emotional like gentle singing achievement and their varied compositions, which are based as far as possible on Pianopartituren, convinced.

“Fools and Orphans” represents a lining up of Anspieltipps, but the ear worm at all is the clay/tone document `Bulldozer’, which sensitive Pianospiel, which merges voice of Jo Gabriel and trumpet sounds of Stephanie the Rearick into a highlight – my absolute recommendation!


The dear beast (R.I.P.) does not stay unfortunately any longer among us and hunts in the eternal hunt reasons of mice in the abundance, but and Orphans” remains for us a melancholy dreamed publication of the top class with “Fools, which does not intend majorities for itself wins, but Musikfetischisten betört, which consumes fastidious clay/tone art, which swings between modern trend and classical period. Those, which estimate expression-strong woman voices, must test Jo Gabriel – my recommendation!
