Spool’s Out Radio #96: What is German Army?

Since 2011 a mysterious Californian outfit by the name of German Army has been releasing tape after tape after LP after CD-R on labels the world over. Uniquely prolific, and consistently satisfying, their music is awash with echo effects, industrial drum machine rhythms, squalling noise, and downright poppy vocal hooks. In addition to the main vehicle of German Army, core member Peter Kris and his many delphic bandmates have a variety of side projects, from the more minimal Q///Q, to the more vocal driven Merx, Peter Kris‘ lusher solo music, and rugged punk inspired project Final Cop.

This week we pick a bunch of classics from the fast growing German Army and friends discography, and even get a murky haunted interview with the Army itself…
