Lasse Marhaug and John Hegre formed Jazzkammer in 1998. Their first album, “Timex” was released on Rune Grammofon in 1999. In early 2000 their second album, “Hot Action Sexy Karaoke” was released on US label Ground Fault Recordings. The sound of Jazzkammer is collage music mixed with free-improvisation electronica. Timbre sound textures, drones, crashing noise, digital glitches, turntable static, lowercase electronics, pop culture samplings and location recordings are mixed and creates a strange, beautiful and intense soundworld. On “Rolex”, Jazzkamer have invited friends and collaborators to remix and rework the material from the two first albums (pluss done a couple of tracks themselves). The tracklist includes contributions by Zbigniew Karkowski, Maja S.K. Ratkje, Merzbow, Jazzkammer, Reynols, Thurston Moore, Pita, Alexander Rishaug, R.Sundin, Tore Honoré Böe, TV Pow, Jørgen Traeen and Francisco López.

On this record: “I Hate Cars (Super Chicken Floppy Willy in a PPP Swimsuit)”
