41 years ago Kraftwerk released Trans Europe Express!

27th of March 2018, 17:16

This month it is 41 years ago Kraftwerk released Trans Europe Express (March 1977), their sixth studio album. The album was recorded during the summer of 1976 in their Kling Klang Studios and released on their own label Kling Klang Records. Two singles were taken from this album, Trans-Europe Express and Showroom Dummies. It was the first Kraftwerk album that was recorded in two different versions. One in English, one in German. The song Showroom Dummies was also released in France and Belgium as Les Mannequins, with the lyrics sung in French. The original German title was Schaufensterpuppen.

Musically Kraftwerk again moved further away from their improvised instrumental Krautrock style, fine tuning their tracks into more melodic electronic compositions.

The introduction of the analogue and customized 32-step Synthanorma Sequenzer with 16 channels was an important game-changer on this record. Kraftwerk also went to railway bridges to listen and analyze the sound of trains passing by which they altered slight to make it more danceable.

The lyrics on Trans Europe Express refer to David Bowie’s album Station To Station and to the actual event of Rafl Hütter and Florian Schneider meeting Bowie in Germany. At that time Bowie was living and recording in Berlin with Iggy Pop (The Stooges). Ralf Hütter refered several times to Iggy Pop And The Stooges as his most favourite band.

Joy Division singer Ian Curtis introduced Kraftwerk to his bandmates and insisted Trans Europe Express was played every time before the band went on stage.

Siouxsie And The Banshees covered the song The Hall Of Mirrors on their cover album Through The Looking Glass (1987). A cover version that todays only remaining original Kraftwerk member today, Ralf Hütter, hailed in glowing terms as extraordinary version.

Many still see this album as one of the most important pop albums of the last decades.

24.03 LeFantastique.Night XLXIV with Bettina Köster (Malaria!) & Mona Mur!

LeFantastique.Night XLXIV

Botanique (chicory bar) - Brussels - 24 March 2018 - 20:00

With this 54th edition, Fantastique.Night returns to the Berlin of the late 1980s, during the endless nights, the Cold War and the sultry Berlin. Two musicians created a furore: Bettina Köster (Malaria !, Mania D., Matador) and Mona Mur, at the head of an all-star band, including Alexander Hacke and FM Einheint from Einstürzende Neubauten. They were mainly occupied with what lived underground and had a maniacal intensity, with slow rhythms, morbid but yet stylish. Together they created a style that would last a long time yet. Koster then moved to New York and Italy, while Mur went to Poland, both without stopping their musical activities. In the Summer of 2017 Bettina Köster released her album Kolonel Silvertop, and we can also expect a new album by Mona Mur in the spring of 2018.

These two icons each receive reinforcements from, respectively, En Esch (ex-KMFDM) for Mona Mur and Klaus Krüger (Tangerine Dream, Iggy Pop) for Bettina Köster. Hano-Ah will open and warm up the audience.


As always, the concerts will be provided with appropriate DJ sets, before, in between and after!

LeFantastique.Night XLXIV
Botanique (witloof bar) – Brussel – 24 maart 2018 – 20:00

Met deze 54ste editie keert Fantastique.Night terug naar het Berlijn van eind jaren ‘80, tijdens de eindeloze nachten, de koude oorlog en het broeierige Berlijn. Twee muzikanten maakten furore: Bettina Köster (Malaria!, Mania D., Matador) en Mona Mur, aan het hoofd van een allstar band, waarvan ook Alexander Hacke en FM Einheit van Einstürzende Neubauten. Ze hielden zich vooral bezig met wat ondergronds leefde met een maniakale intensiteit, met trage ritmiek, morbide en toch stijlvol. Samen schiepen ze een stijl die nog lang zou nazinderen. Köster verhuisde nadien naar New York en Italië, terwijl Mur naar Polen trok, zonder evenwel hun muzikale activiteiten te staken. In de zomer van 2017 brengt Bettina Köster haar album Kolonel Silvertop uit, terwijl we in de lente van 2018 een nieuw album mogen verwachten van Mona Mur.

Deze twee iconen krijgen elk versterking van En Esch (ex-KMFDM) voor Mona Mur en Klaus krüger (Tangerine Dream, Iggy Pop) voor Bettina Köster. Hano-Ah mag ons opwarmen voor dit alles.

Zoals steeds zullen de concerten vooraf, tussendoor en aansluitend voorzien zijn van een passende DJ-set..

Today, exactly 28 years ago, Nine Inch Nails released their second single Head Like a Hole!

22nd of March 2018, 20:19

Today, exactly 28 years ago, Nine Inch Nails released their second single Head Like a Hole (HALO 3) taken from their debut album Pretty Hate Machine.

The single received massive critical acclaim and got heavy rotation on radiostations and MTV. Head Like A Hole became an instant (underground) hit and remains upon today still one of NIN’s main artifacts.

The song was covered by many artists since, amongst those DEVO and Nu-Metal band Korn.

Head Like A Hole - Lyrics

God money I'll do anything for you.
God money just tell me what you want me to
God money nail me up against the wall.
God money don't want everything he wants it all.
No you can't take it
No you can't take it
No you can't take that away from me
No you can't take it
No you can't take it
No you can't take that away from me

Head like a hole.
Black as your soul.
I'd rather die than give you control.
Head like a hole.
Black as your soul.
I'd rather die than give you control.

Bow down before the one you serve.
You're going to get what you deserve.
Bow down before the one you serve.
You're going to get what you deserve.

God money's not looking for the cure.
God money's not concerned with the sick among the pure.
God money let's go dancing on the backs of the bruised.
God money's not one to choose
No you can't take it
No you can't take it
No you can't take that away from me
No you can't take it
No you can't take it
No you can't take that away from me

Head like a hole.
Black as your soul.
I'd rather die than give you control.
Head like a hole.
Black as your soul.
I'd rather die than give you control.

Bow down before the one you serve.
You're going to get what you deserve.
Bow down before the one you serve.
You're going to get what you deserve.
Bow down before the one you serve
You're going to get what you deserve.
Bow down before the one you serve.
You're going to get what you deserve.

Head like a hole.
Black as your soul.
I'd rather die than give you control.
Head like a hole.
Black as your soul.
I'd rather die than give you control.
Head like a hole.
Black as your soul.
I'd rather die than give you control.
Head like a hole.
Black as your soul.
I'd rather die than give you control.

Bow down before the one you serve.
You're going to get what you deserve.
Bow down before the one you serve.
You're going to get what you deserve.
Bow down before the one you serve.
You're going to get what you deserve.
Bow down before the one you serve.
You're going to get what you deserve.

Today it’s exactly 28 years ago that Nitzer Ebb released their third studio album Showtime on Mute Records (STUMM 72 / 20 March 1990).

The album has a whole has a very cohesive, uniform sound, despite each song being very unique, ranging from the more EBM-like Rope to the almost Industrial-Rock-ish Getting Closer. Three singles were taken from this album and released separately, Lightning Man, Fun To Be Had and Getting Closer.

Today, 38 years ago, Joy Division released 'Licht und Blindheit'.

18th of March 2018, 19:16

Today, 38 years ago Joy Division released "Licht und Blindheit" (Light and Blindness). Originally released on 18 March 1980 by the French label Sordide Sentimental as a France-only single release. It was limited to 1578 copies and featured the tracks Atmosphere (A-side) and Dead Souls (B-side).

Following the death of Ian Curtis in May 1980, "Atmosphere" was released as a single along with She’s Lost Control.

The single was re-released in 1988 to coincide with the release of the Joy Division compilation album Substance. The video that came with this re-release of Atmosphere was directed by Anton Corbijn.

Atmosphere - Lyrics

Walk in silence
Don't walk away, in silence
See the danger
Always danger
Endless talking
Life rebuilding
Don't walk away
Walk in silence
Don't turn away, in silence
Your confusion
My illusion
Worn like a mask of self-hate
Confronts and then dies
Don't walk away
People like you find it easy
Naked to see
Walking on air
Hunting by the rivers, through the streets, every corner
Abandoned too soon
Set down with due care
Don't walk away in silence
Don't walk away

(Bernard Sumner / Ian Curtis / Peter Hook / Stephen Paul David Morris)
