some reactions to glassglue

Four crazed surgeons spaz out in the operating theatre. The patient is re-piped in a surgical steal nightmare. Glassglue is the result of a car crash involving Captain Beefheart and Kraftwerk. This is a stylised, clinical, art murder in cold blood. One listen will challenge your existence. You will not enjoy your time in the hospital. You were not supposed to. You can not judge this type of surgery. 95/100
(Peter Hitchings, Spill May 2006)

Inspired, Beefheart-like weirdness
(Time Out 08/05)

Kinda Birthday Party meets smooth jazz meets Captain Beefheart (some nice off kilter rhythms) meets .Low. era Bowie (vocally-wise in a couple of places.no insult intended!) and a sprinkle of Mr Waits.cool as.
(Rex Diablo, Suitable Case for Treatment)

Glassglue frontman Marcel Stoetzler may well look like a tall Max Wall but he in fact sounds more like a hybrid of both Marlene Dietrich and Howard Devoto. His short, sharp & witty observations are perfectly conveyed with the aid of his ever ready yet geeky band members.

They can keep you on your toes for an entire set and leave you asking for more!
(Jen Hauser)

Tall, charismatic madman Marcel Stoetzler makes a striking frontman for this oddball quartet from Weirdsville. He is superbly complemented by the jagged, disjointed melodies of Matthew Karas on guitar, keyboards and banjo and the untrippable rhythm section of Gianluca Galetti on bass and new drummer Emyr Tomos. Definitely one for fans of Beefheart, Zappa and Tom Waits.

... an eccentric bunch of musicians who are beefier than Beefheart ...great stage presence and short sharp songs that are quirky and work well... enthusiastic, intelligent, bright, sharp, concise and minimalistic in their no nonsense approach and are not ridden with clich
