Zoppo Trump from Dortmund are known in collectors' circles only for the sampler
LP "Scena Westphalica" (Förderturm Records UP I/76), on which they are
represented with their highly praised pieces "Wellengang" and "Fluktuation". In
addition to these tracks, the CD contains another seven tracks of a perfect
sound which had been studio recordings and had not been released until then.
Style: progressive rock slightly influenced by jazz and classical music, however
mostly without any wind instruments. There was a sporadic use of the Mellotron
and English vocals. Comparable to Streetmark. Udo Preising had come from
Electric Mud. Nicky Gebhard later joined Wallenstein, and Martin Buschmann, son
of the well-known jazz-musician Rainer Glen Buschmann, joined Cochise. For some
time, by the way, Dieter Gorny was on bass for Zoppo Trump. There are, however,
no recordings from this period of their band history.
