Sinto (Muenchen) - Right On Brother - 1972


Sinto_Right On Brother_krautrock
Hannes Beckmann erhielt seine erste Geige mit sechs Jahren vom Urgroßvater und hatte ersten Unterricht im durchgängig musikalisch geprägten Familienkreis, später an der Musikschule. Er studierte am Konservatorium Düsseldorf Geige, danach von 1970 bis 1974 in München Komposition und Jura. Erste Auftritte hatte er währenddessen in Swingbands der Musikerfamilien Reinhardt und Weiss sowie mit Peter Michael Hamels Gruppe Between. Ein Engagement im Orchester des Balletts Brasiliana brachte ihn in Kontakt mit den Perkussionisten Charles Campbell und Pery und Edir dos Santos, mit denen er 1972 seine Gruppe Sinto gründete, die bis 1979 erfolgreich in Europa und Japan gastierte, mit den Alben „Right On Brother“ (1972) und „Sonho Negro“ (1978) aufhorchen ließ.

Das erste Album der Band "Sinto" erinnert an Atlantis, Randy Pie und Eric Burdon's War, East Of Eden und Flock. Es handelt sich um funkige Rockmusik mit einer Prise "Kraut" und einem Schuß "Prog". Auffällig ist der exzellente Violinist, der den Part des zweiten Leadgitarristen übernimmt. Wie man an der Besetzungsliste unschwer erkennt, spielen Perkussion und mehrstimmiger Gesang eine gewichtige Rolle. Dieses Album hat durchaus kommerzielle Qualitäten und ich wundere mich, warum es mir damals nach seiner Veröffentlichung nie zu Ohren gekommen ist.
(Rudi Vogal alias green-brain)

Here is one of the true jewels of German prog-rock. Sinto's Right On Brother is my recent discovery and it quickly became one of the favorites.

Those expecting kraut-rock must stop here. It's nothing but pure prog in the British tradition and in fact there's almost no "Germanity" on this album, it could have been easily recorded in UK around the same time (1974).

Sinto's complex prog is wonderfully diluted by some funky elements - that can probably make this album appealing for both prog- and mainstream rock fans. Instrumentation is very rich including not only guitar (Alfred Jones produces some blistering solos throughout the album) and keyboards (funky piano of Peter Holzwig is superb!), but also violin, which plays a prominent part in the whole mix. Plus, here is a special guy who plays on different congas, bongos and other percussive instruments and his inclusion makes the rhythm-section more versatile.

All the tracks are song-oriented, but this shouldn't repulse you. Vocalist is no Demetrio Stratos, but he does a nice job and it seems that there is no accent in his pronunciation (which is characteristic of many German vocalists daring to sing in English). Despite the simple structure of most of the tracks (the closing "Another Voice" is the only exception), they are quite unusual harmonically so that they can be labeled progressive rock by all means. The musicianship is of the highest class and the interplays between guitar and violin are simply great.

Here are some up-tempo rocking songs with obvious funky stylings (opening title-track, "In My Times", 'Don't Wait") and some sad and extremely beautiful ballads ("Rome"). Closing "Another Voice" reminds me of Sinto's compatriots from Pell Mell - the same dark piano riff and violin extravaganza on the top.

Overall, this is a wonderful LP. Due to the skillful combination of catchy funky parts and complex instrumental showoffs it can surely please both prog bigots and mainstream rock lovers. To be honest, I'm pretty surprised this album is fairly obscure, since it seems consciously made for satisfying the wide audience. Anyway, I highly recommend everyone to check it out.
