Runzelstirn & Gurgelstøck-Feld-(Bandaged Hand Produce-UK-1995)

Rudolf Eb.er’s research and work leads down - and through - the nethermost regions of the human psyche. Combining abreactive and cleansing actionism with sonic rituals and psychoactive acoustics, Eb.er generates audio-environments into which he plants grotesque psychomagick rituals and tantric exercises to trigger a higher awareness. Eb.er aka Runzelstirn & Gurgelstøck founded Schimpfluch in 1987.(from his bandcamp page)
On his Official webpage you`ll find lots of info about his works,actions,rites and exhibitions,audioreleases,sound examples and webshop.
For all of you curious to know more I have found also an intersting interview on TinyMixTapes webpage.
Bandaged Hand Produce was the personal tape labal managed by All Brentnall aka Mleshst who founded this label in 1992 but in 2001 All destroyed all master tapes, thus closing the book on BHP. 
To complete this post I am attaching here a great video performance + the info taken from that YouTube channel,you`ll find lots of other cool videos about his other performances on youtube.
Enjoy it.

 "Rudolf Eb.er, a.k.a. Runzelstirn & Gurgelstøck, founded Schimpfluch in December 1986, and coined the concept of “psycho-physical tests and trainings“. This approach deals with therapeutic and analytical actions and reactions of the psyche, the body, and of senses and realities (of both performers and audiences) in a radical, critical but also liberating way - an attack on the mind as well as a stimulation of the senses. Although dwelling in obscurity, Eb.er has gained immeasureable respect for his performances as well as for his unique cut-up techniques; a strict compositional yet organic process that some say is Viennese actionism put into sound, but probably has more to do with martial arts attack patterns, where even the silences between sounds describe a composure that causes maximum tension." - undertheradar.co.nz

"Rudolph Eb.er is an unsung hero, and you should be afraid of him. He's the GG Allin of "electronic music." But don't write it off as shock. Even though Mr. R Eb.er has been known to smear shit on the walls of art galleries, R&G is no mere shock-value schlock. Anything the man does wields memorable power. Besides being frightening enough to cause people only be able to laugh nervously in reaction during performances, he really has created some of the most interesting and effective splice recordings/compositions on earth." - Webofmimicry.com
