Berlin: Tag Vier...

CP and I made our way over to bar-besotted Schlesische Straße and steamed into Mysliwska to confer with Daniel Löwenbrücke, Joke Lanz and his girlfriend Uta, Kohei Gomi, und Barbara Speer. We enjoyed four hours of drinks and laughter, with a minimum of four languages swirling about our table at any given time.

You can definitely expect a new Ohne album in 2009. We're running nearly two years behind our previously agreed-upon start date, but with the benefit of slightly closer proximity I should be able to nag the other principals until they throw up their scarred mitts in exasperated surrender. Joke and I will be reuniting as well for a series of duo performances in the new year, and Kohei and I will also join forces for a Pain Jerk/Tom Smith collab. The next 15 months are gonna be crazy...





























Berlin, 9. November, 14:20 Uhr...

Slowly stirring, as is my wont. Found Herr T's DVD rip of Rüdiger Nüchtern's allegedly pre-Cambrian nature study Amon Düül II Plays Phallus Dei. Watching it now... Digging, despite the cavils of the uncultured.

A reminder:

All film is good. All music is bad.
