Fit & Limo picture
Fit & Limo biography
Fit & limo is a couple of multi-instrumentalists folk artists from Bavaria (Germany). They started their career back in the seventies as an acid folk rock formation. Their sound is in the tradition of the Incredible String Band influences. Today the duet explores "world", ethnic harmonies & traditional acoustic instruments. Compositions provide an important variety of dreamy folk sections including a heavy use of sitar. This is for fans of fusion music and kraut-folk, mixing psych rock to chamber folk, "ethnic" arrangements. A large community of musicians accompany the band in this adventure; also involved into numerous side projects (the religious "the god box" and the more rock sounded "Discolor".). From their retrospective (1983-88) to the recent inspired kraut-folk "Terra Incognita" (2004) the band has brilliantly brought folk rock on new territories.

Review by The Jester

— First review of this album —
3 stars Fit & Limo is a German duet that follows the path that the The incredible String Band opened, and they don't hide it. The proof of that is this mini LP that contains 4 songs from The Incredible String Band in cover versions. Here I will write the 4 tracks of this record, and inside the parenthesis the albums of the ISB that you can find them, in case you want to listen to the original versions as well... 1. This moment (I Looked Up) (1970) 2. Come with me (Be Glad for the Song has no Ending) (1970) 3. Three is a Green Crown (The Hangman's Beautiful Daughter) (1967) 4. Chinese White (5000 Spirits or the Layers of the Onion) (1967) As for the record, it's in the same style of the ISB. Many strings, (like guitar sitar tambura viloin etc), weird vocals, and so on... I will put 3 stars on this, but only because I grew up with the music of The Incredible string Band, and that doesn't sound too weird to my ears. But it is recommended to the fans of this Scotish band only!

3 stars Eastern influenced psych-folk obscurity. The album includes very peaceful, mellow "bucolic" pieces with an omnipresence of sitar chords. The atmosphere is sometimes melancholic, sometimes sunny but always wonderfully "stoned". "Seraph" is a fragile, beautiful composition including an almost religious theme for sitar and backing vocals, repetitive in style but quite catchy melody with an inspired 60's felt. "Will You" is an acoustic little ballad with female vocals. "Lasst Uns Auf Die Reise Gehn" is pop folk piece sung in a plaintive tone (in German). "Golden Floor" is a touching pseudo mystical ballad with long sleeping, monotonous melodies (featuring percussions, chants and mellotron). "Wende Dich Her" starts with a nice combination of mandolin & Mellotron; meditative, dreamy like piece. "Unknown World" is an other acoustic ballad with conventional folk melodies. The "floating", dream folk sound (for violin and guitar) is punctuated by male/ female voices. Emotional hippy folk soundscapes for dream time.

Review by pirkka

2 stars I have only heard this one album by Fit+Limo. This is also first Raga album I listen to. The music is meditative. Mellotron and Chamberlin are used to create a flowing background for monotoniuos vocals, cymbals, tambouras, glockenspiels, indian banjos etc... The overall feeling is somewhat foggy. Probably best enjoyed while incense are burning and with eyes shut. This is as far from rock as we are from alpha centauri but can probably take you there. Actually this would be etno if these people would come from some distant country but this music is from Germany. Folk music there is different :-). I would rather place this music into new wave. For progheads ... no.. Is this bad music? No, only boring.
