Másfél - Villamos (Remastered)
Másfél was one of the most important and loved underground act of the 90’s in Hungary.
They were active for more than two decades, recorded many albums, and concert albums, played their tunes in every important venues of Hungary also had many gigs in all over Europe or Russia.
It’s not easy to define their unique sound, since it contains many elements from rock, jazz, post punk or funk, even electronic components. One thing is sure; this instrumental blend of many styles helped the band to conquer the stages of Europe including the main stage of Sziget. Másfél was always known for their experimental style, they constantly tried to implement more and more of the many musical impressions they encountered.
In spite of all the successes and fame their albums were never released in digital formats. Today their previous CDs are hard to find items. To change this we’re proud to present the first 2 albums of the band in remastered digital version.
In 1998, in addition to their album Katasztrófamámor and the two hundredth live concert also brought together a single. The first of the two tracks is the seven minute long Remíz, which is sharper and more intimate then the second one. Originally this title was made for the short film Villamos of produced and released by Nyitrai Márton a year before in 1997. The another song is called Neonhal, which is restrained than the first, but its tense mood and monotonous rhythms fits nicely with Remíz.
The remastering of the original recordings was funded by NKA.
