hauptsache musik - max müller of mutter in interview

...
 

meeting artists is dead easy, you just gotta
find out about and hop to the really exciting events


choose the path to happiness and sneak through the door
so that those doors of perception will open up for you

 

yes sometimes life is like x-mas rather than a carnival of souls -
even if and especially when the date you choose is 11/11/11
- it is the time to catch a piece of brutalism


and now it was time to meet up with german avantgarde pioneers
mutter (a name roughly translating to 'mom' inna english language)
who were going to be on stage at the cafe glocksee that very night


 in order to promote their current album 'meine kleine krieg '
(which bun thinks means something like
'me own very tiny little war' inna more civilised language)


their music is really strange, rather german and there's conceptual
 surprises included for the devoted listener on each new album


...and live they are kind of this monolithic thing that
sometimes reminds bun of a blend of throbbing gristle, trouble
and der munchener friehiet, that rather unpopular poproup from
the south of germany that used to get a lot of attention in hillbilly
places like e.g. brunswick, hamburg, hanover or wolfsburg
(....but don't you ever dare to mention that towards anybun!)


after the show it was time for yet another drink right before
hopping into backstage for an interview with mutter


as there was a tad of spare time left what else would bun be
thinking of doing rather than hopping back to the bar yet again
to beg for another one of those well chilled german lager beers


before she had to be off to catch the last
of those glossy electric trams heading
off towards your humble editoresse's lair


yours, as really truly as could be,
haselore kohl
