The first self titled release by Bruniferd from 1986. In Andrew Jones' Plunderphonics, 'Pataphysics & Pop Mechanics, Ferdinand has this to say about the Bruniferd project.

If a note is there, it is because it has to be there. Our music is very concentrated. As such it is not a spectacle, it's not a show. Bruniferd is very powerful as it is trying to give a maximum of things with a minimum of element. Just one bass, no effects, one saxophone, no effects, and some poesie. We could eventually play with no PA; we could play in your bathroom.

Elsewhere he wrote that "we don't send our shoes into the piano". Someone who had seen them at Mimi, told me she thought they were a little too dry, but I think that matter of fact approach is part of what I like so much about Richard's projects.

Sorry about the image, my little scanner can't handle album covers and that was all I could find on the web. I'll get the cover scanned and swap out the jpg, but in the meantime, here is the music.
