A limited edition of 100 C30 tapes and/or a digital download is now available on Neoprimitive’s bandcamp site. This album was recorded in 2016 and mixed in 2019. It is based on field recordings collected on north sea beaches and the harbour area of Hamburg.
The concept and design revolve around a flag that german ships had to fly between the years 1946 and 1949:
„After the defeat of Germany in World War II, the country was placed under Allied administration. Although there was neither a national German government nor a German flag, German ships were required by international law to have a national ensign of some kind. As a provisional civil ensign of Germany, the Council designated the international signal pennant Charlie representing the letter C ending in a swallowtail, known as the C-Pennant (C-Doppelstander, C as in capitulation). The Council ruled that ’no ceremony shall be accorded this flag which shall not be dipped in salute to warships or merchant ships of any nationality‘.“
