Digatone present the first official reissue of Fatty George Und Silke Schwinger’s Trip the long lost and extremely rare Austrian hippie-rock/jazz/funk opera score from 1971. Features, among others, Su Kramer (also known from the Hair album and stage play featuring Czechoslovakian band The Matadors), Fatty George, Karl Ratzer, Peter Wolf, Richard Schoenherz, and Leszek Zadlo. Originally released in 1972 by Telefunken in Germany in a small quantity, and now highly collectable, the LP combines funk, pop, psychedelia, acid jazz, and gospel. Performed with electric guitar, flute, organ, sitar, and more, this music has been frequently sampled in recent years. Produced for Austrian TV, the story is about a guru who comes to Vienna to preach about a world with no technology, but with lots of drugs. However, when a young boy dies after an LSD trip, things go terribly wrong. Includes an insert supplying background information in German and English; Edition of 1000….~


Trip was an early 70s Austrian pop-opera concerning the reception given to a black messiah in the modern age. Touching on the youth concerns of the time, it made a strong impact in Austria, where this extremely rare soundtrack album was issued in 1972. Spanning funk, pop, acid jazz and gospel, with electric guitar, flute, organ, sitar and more, it has been sampled in recent years (notably the epic breakbeat in White Sand) and makes its CD debut here…..~
“Trip” is an Austrian rock opera about a guru who came to Vienna to preach life without modern technology, but with a lot of drugs, from which he eventually dies himself. The work was created by scriptwriter Silke Schwinger and jazz musician Franz Pressler (nicknamed Fetty George). It was first staged in 1971 on the stage of the Salzburg Festival, and then appeared as an album and a television movie. The recording is a jazz-funk with a powerful psychedelic guitar and a rich vocal palette…..~


Today we are dedicated to a sensational, ultimately completely forgotten climax of domestic television history and its accompanying soundtrack. Based on a play by Silke Schwinger, the revolutionary TV show “Trip” was shot in 1971 within a few days of filming. On August 8th, it aired on the ORF’s night program - and then disappeared into the archives, singing and singing.
The plot of the film is simple and good: A self-proclaimed Messiah, the charismatic preacher Ronny Nia comes to Vienna for 10 days to proclaim the universal love of God. Already on his arrival at the airport, he and his entourage expect a euphoric teen fanbase and a local press service. Unforgettable is the young Peter Rapp as an interviewing - and visibly irritated - TV reporter. All around: television cameras, autograph hunters, flower children, police.
Peppered with a top-class ensemble of German-speaking stage actors of the day (such as Julia Migenes, Su Kramer and Ron Williams), the “Trip” accompanies a group of young hippies, who have quickly formed around the prominent guest, at their debauchery, from an underground happening to the next. It is hilariously celebrated, danced and sung. And yes, drugs are probably also in the game. 
But it comes, as it must come: After the initial ecstasy crashes, disillusionment and depression follow. As a member of the gang dies of an overdose, the mood tips. And since religious leader Ron still has no essential answers, the group finally breaks up. Remarkably, the narrative of “Trip” renounces the upscale, moral index finger and, in the meantime, steers towards an open, impulsive end.
The experimental design of the film, for which director Jörg Eggers was responsible, is groundbreaking for viewing habits at that time. Minute-long scenes of a single shot are followed by hallucinogenic nightmare sequences with psychedelic transitions and fast-paced sequences; an aesthetic reminiscent of the work of American underground filmmaker Kenneth Anger. A stage design specially designed by the painter Ernst Fuchs does the rest.
The media review in Austria, which was accompanied by the first broadcast of the film, however, was modest. Apparently, neither the local audience nor critics could figure it out. The film then disappeared again in the sinking and in the archives of the ORF. The soundtrack of the film, which appeared a short time later as long-playing record at the German major label Telefunken, but over the years developed into a sought-after cult object. Meanwhile, the eponymous “Trip” LP collects collector prices in three digits.
The Innsbruck cultural club Digatone has now dug up the rare soundtrack and makes the music from the film accessible again as lovingly made reissue. A strong gun: Under the direction of the Viennese jazz legend Fatty George, the cast of the “Trip” music-music orchestra on late-born babies seems like a little who-is-who of domestic entertainment music of the early 1970s: Fatty’s band had some later superstars Karl Ratzer, Peter Wolf, Richard Schoenherz and Leszek Zadlo, who were still at the beginning of their careers in 1971. The illustrious collective was expanded to include well-known jazz musicians from the ORF Big Band environment. And peng! The “Trip” soundtrack is a masterpiece of domestic soul jazz and also a significant piece of local pop and subculture history…..by….Bird Sputnik…..~


TRIP was a psychedelic Austrian musical about a religious purposes ravisher and as the title already let imagine, drugs. They call it „Pop-Oper“ and it was staged for the „Salzburger Opernpreis“ 1971. The story was written by Silke Schwinger, the music came from the Austrian Jazz musician Fatty George. Stage acting singers was Ronny Williams, Su Kramer, Franklink Summers, Julia Migenes and Jürgen Marcus. The music was made by the ORF-Bigband….~
