Artist: MERRY, HARRY
Title: Harry Merry and barrel organ De Pansfluiter: Australian Sun
Format: 7"
Label: Meeuw Muzak
Country: Belgium
Price: $8.00
"Various friends of mine go wild over Harry Merry. They think hes witty, a genius, an outsider, a true composer in a new tradition or anything something alike. I dont belong to those people. I think Harry Merry, a singer and keyboard player, is a clever man, who carved with weirdness a niche for himself, performing at alternative art locations and every now and then releasing a new record. Here he has one on Meeuw Muzak - now theres a favorite label of mine! - produced by Dear Listener Martin Luiten, who by now has the role of in-house producer for Meeuw - and which label does have such a producer these days? Here he has a song where he sings along a barrel organ, with a song someone carved into the organ book. There are microphones everywhere, so we also the pages going through the organ, which add a very weird quality to the song. In fact its so weird that this easily might be the very first record I hear from Harry Merry that I truly like. Perhaps because I cant stand barrel organs out on the street? Will I listen to these differently next time I pass one? Negative plus negative makes positive? Curious little record with an instrumental version on the flip - now theres a daring move. Crazy indeed." - Frans de Waard, Vital Weekly.

Artist: MERRY, HARRY
Title: Village Life In 1905
Format: 7"
Label: Ole
Country: Netherlands
Price: $7.00
"Harrys keyboard has been producing Bach, Beatles and some clever barrel organ sounds ever since Harry got his organ back from the factory. Where he had send it with the task to rearrange it so it could produce the sounds and structures he needed. Harry Merrys hilarious apearance and total baroque musical style is often misunderstood in the popscene, mainly seen as a funny gimmick. He first got recognised in the Rotterdam artscene as a representant of typical dutch avantgarde music. Like Willem Breuker uses march music, Harry uses the street organ sound and sings with a strong dutch accent and puts these typical elements in a new perspective. Harry is a talented composer being ironic and absurd, singing in his own unique way about the Panorama paper, moody busdrivers and Hoydenish Ambrosial.
