In October 1990 Peaceville Records (UK) released KONG’s first album ‘Mute Poet Vocalizer’. To celebrate this 25th anniversary the album has been remixed by former KONG guitarist Dirk de Vries. The album was recorded in a large bunker under a bridge in the Vondelpark, Amsterdam. This place is legendary for Pink Floyd playing there on 01-06-1968, when it was a club called ‘Lijn 3’, named after the tram which drives over the bridge every few minutes. Despite recording mainly at night the tram is audible on each of the four KONG albums that have been recorded there over the years.
Mute Poet Vocalizer was recorded in two days in a ‘live’ set-up, meaning each musician in a corner of the room playing simultaneously onto 16 track tape. Mixing was done in the same space on a large analog mixing desk (which was originally owned by Genesis(!).
The album was quite succesful but technology has improved and we felt challanged to get the best possible out of the original recordings. The result is amazing and we’re very much looking forward to release this gem…!
