This blog is dedicated to the sublime instruments called nose flutes and which produce the most divine sound ever. We have chosen to discard all the native models from S. Pacific and Asia, for they need fingering to be played. We'll concentrate on "buccal cavity driven" nose flutes : the well patented and trademarked metal or plastic ones, plus, by a condemnable indulgence, some wooden craft or home-made productions.

Music : the delirious Grindchor

If you are a pure and sensitive music lover, don't spend your time reading this post. The Grindchor, a.k.a. Das Original Oberkreuzberger Nasenflötenorchester is a band of delirious post-punk berliners playing mass nose flute. German press used to compare them to a parakeets choir, and I must say the comparison is particularly well chosen : imagine nine joyful psittacinae singing classic hits accompanied by saturated guitar, heavy bass, binary drums and so...

The CD Stille tage in Rüsselsheim (issued in 2002) offers 20 tracks of pure nasenflöten delirium, full of joy and malice. My prefered ones are the covers of Apache, My Way (S. Vicious version of course...), Peter Gunn, Somewhere Over The Rainbow and an indescribable version of Zorba The Greek...

Listen My way

The CD is a bit difficult to get (not in Amazon listings...) but is findable new on Ebay, but definitely too expensive. But a must for collectors.
