Bruno Spoerri - Der Würger vom Tower LP
Cult jazz soundtrack to supernatural Soho strangler epic "Der Wurger Vom Tower" by Swiss electronic pioneer Bruno Spoerri that has been locked away since 1966.
Translated as ‘The Strangler In The Tower’, this lesser-known thriller possibly stretched the imaginations of cinematic crime buffs beyond the genre’s parameters before disappearing into obscurity.
Liberated from Bruno Spoerri’s meticulous master tape vault this, his first-ever feature-length soundtrack commission, can finally take its place alongside other recently resuscitated oblique jazz scores by the likes of Basil Kirchin, Krzysztof Komeda (Cul-De-Sac), Roger Webb and Jonny Scott.
The real sacred jewel in Bruno Spoerri’s crown as the leader and pioneer of Switzerland’s electronic underground (not to mention sample source amongst rap royalty) and a mysterious monarchical figure in European jazz and music technology.
