Heilig's Blechle: another view on a 2010 rehearsal



"Heilig's Blechle" - in English free translation "Holy Sheet" -   is a Swabian phrase to express the astonishment, which is derived from a municipal ID card for poor people's accommodation.
This is my simple input to 2010. Some titles that touched me on my trip through my univers, are older than 2010. 
sentimental 
                    innovative 
                                       homespun 
                                                         trancy trendy 
hippieflowerpowered                         deep
                                   plane                      revolutionary 
BLaCK hearted                                    uncorrupted  .........but never NOTME!!!


Hope you like it, not always, but.... sometimes
**play these traffic signs LOUD




Why do all my best fellows leave me? Viva la vie! 
Don Glen Van Vliet entered the waiting room to heaven on Dec, 17 2010. 
"This is the Day" is taken from his Magic Band's album Unconditionally Guaranteed (1974)

This is the day that love chose to play,
The day love came to stay,
This kiss is for the first time,
And this kiss is for that time
Love to ride
This is the day that love chose to play
One minute here, one minute there
Love spent time everywhere,
This day that love chose to stay
This is the day that love chose to play,
The day love came to stay,
This kiss is for the first time,
And this kiss is for that time
Love to ride
This is the day that love chose to play
One minute here, one minute there
Love spent time everywhere,
This day that love chose to stay

"Poor Wayfaring Stranger" is a traditional spiritual folk song of unknown origin. There are many and varied opinions as to its origin. Some of the proposed origins are Appalachian folk, old Irish folk, and Catskills folk. One theory is that it originates from the Negro Spirituals and there was a deliberate concealment of the song's origins. Clearly the song is of a spiritual nature as the Wayfaring Stranger sings of the hardships of his temporal life passing by and refers to his journeying on to a better place. This song has been recorded countless times.
Here it comes with the Jamie Woon version.

"Miss You" by Anders Trentemøller. I think, this is an acceptable sound to rest in peace while waiting and knocking on heavens door.

LCD Soundsystem - Losing My Edge**


video

Yeah, I'm losing my edge. I'm losing my edge.The kids are coming up from behind. I'm losing my edge. 
I'm losing my edge to the kids from France and from London. But I was there.I was there in 1968. 
I was there at the first Can show in Cologne. I'm losing my edge. I'm losing my edge to the kids whose footsteps I hear when they get on the decks.I'm losing my edge to the Internet seekers who can tell me every member of every good group from 1962 to 1978. I'm losing my edge.To all the kids in Tokyo and Berlin.I'm losing my edge to the art-school Brooklynites in little jackets and borrowed nostalgia for the unremembered eighties.But I'm losing my edge. I'm losing my edge, but I was there. was there. 
But I was there. 
I'm losing my edge. 
I'm losing my edge. 
I can hear the footsteps every night on the decks. But I was there I was there in 1974 at the first Suicide practices in a loft in New York CityI was working on the organ sounds with much patience.I was there when Captain Beefheart started up his first band. I told him, "Don't do it that way. You'll never make a dime." 
I was there. I was the first guy playing Daft Punk to the rock kids. 
I played it at CBGB's. Everybody thought I was crazy We all know.I was there I was there. I've never been wrong. 
I used to work in the record store. I had everything before anyone.I was there in the Paradise Garage DJ booth with Larry Levan. I was there in Jamaica during the great sound clashes.I woke up naked on the beach in Ibiza in 1988. 
But I'm losing my edge to better-looking people with better ideas and more talent And they're actually really, really nice. 
I'm losing my edge. 
I heard you have a compilation of every good song ever done by anybody. Every great song by the Beach Boys. All the underground hits. All the Modern Lovers tracks. I heard you have a vinyl of every Niagra record on German import. I heard that you have a white label of every seminal Detroit techno hit - 1985, '86, '87. I heard that you have a CD compilation of every good '60s cut and another box set from the '70s. 
I hear you're buying a synthesizer and an arpeggiator and are throwing your computer out the window because you want to make something real. You want to make a Yaz record. 
I hear that you and your band have sold your guitars and bought turntables. 
I hear that you and your band have sold your turntables and bought guitars. 
I hear everybody that you know is more relevant than everybody that I know. 
But have you seen my records? This Heat, Pere Ubu, Outsiders, Nation of Ulysses, Mars, The Trojans, The Black Dice, Todd Terry, the Germs, Section 25, Althea and Donna, Sexual Harrassment, a-ha, Pere Ubu, Dorothy Ashby, PIL, the Fania All-Stars, the Bar-Kays, the Human League, the Normal, Lou Reed, Scott Walker, Monks, Niagra,

Even the Berlusconi debauched stronghold acclaimed a 2010 bounty. In "Memories" to savage summer parties: David Guetta & Kid Kudi. (05/2010)

Ups and Downs in 2010, too. Malcolm McLaren knocked on heavens door in April, 2010.
"About her" is based on a Zombies' song "She's not there" (1964) and became to a deep lasting  impression in Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill 2.

Another Jamie Woon is "Gravity". Sosorry, but he is my greatest analogist, actually, waiting for his debut album announced to be released in 2011.

I'm thinking about a golden comment on Darkstar's - "Gold" (10/2010) .... Notwist... Man's Man's World... WolfgangFM...? I don't  know. The golden hairline hits me confused and a thousand miles away... anyway "A life without music is an error" Friedrich Nietzsche.

It's always raining over the border
There's been a plane crash out there
In the wheat fields
They're picking up the pieces
We could go and look and stare
How many friends have we over there?
The border guards fight unconvincingly
Whatever we do it seems things are arranged
We always have to feed the enemy
You could dance for me and punch me through
(Dance for me)
You could dance for me and punch me through
(Dance for me)
You could dance for me and punch me through
(Dance for me)
You could dance for me and punch me through
(Dance for me)
We watched them trash the last camera
Glued to all our TV's
Well the actors on the replay
Trying again to touch you and me
But they always seem to know
Exactly what they're talking about
Because they've got you in a corner
You've got no room to move
You've got no room for doubt
That's exactly what they're talking about
Because they've got you in a corner
No room to move, no room for doubt


Back to Reality. No more compromises any more!! Here they come: Oneida - "All Arounder" gorgeous, "Gut, dass wir verglichen haben"

Cember's 40 years continued


O
MG, how to continue this path of passion? May be my dearest friends from Wilco could have a chance to your sensible ears, Let's
De Cember - all the (garden) furnitures are in the garage. It's the right time to continue my Nov Ember 40 years collection, may be a little bit more candle lighted, and a perfect intro with respect to glooming lights reveling more visibility.

Sometimes, even nowhere days, you'll find some jewels like Regina Spector's voice and piano playing on a type machine. Eet is my cember present and new introduction, It's like forgetting the words to your favorite song.

Regina Spektor: Hotel Song


video


Syd Matters - "Hi life".   you need to listen more the lyrics of this song and think more than simply watching and waiting for something .

In the summer time trying hard with your summer clothes you expected more
With your heart jumping in your chest
Jumping in your chest falling on the floor
You stay hidden in the shadows of the lane between the rule and their old house
A thousand lonely streets let me run let me run away from the burned house
Ohh, fast lane we go.
Tatata
Hi life knowking in my door
Oh made to care X2
Now you spend your life waiting for a sign
Waiting for a sign living downtown in the old house
A thousand lonely years hidding in the ground 
Hidding in the ground living downtown in the old house
Ohh, fast lane we go. X4
Under me to care
Tatata X4
Hi life knowking in my door
Under me to care

Isobel Campbell und Mark Lanegan: "Deus Ibi Est" from their 2010 album "Ballad Of The Broken Seas" Love it or leave it. I've found this amateur video... and was happy.

Nick Cave  and the Bad Seeds -  "Children" from the album "Abattoir Blues/Lyre of Orpheus" (2004)

Usually I'm not a real fan of techno music. but as you might have noticed, "Underworld" is one of the big exceptions.
Again a brilliant symbiosis of  music and visualization "Bird 1" (2010)



video


My WoW hymn of all times , "Mining" a mix of German undergrounders Knorkator "Weg nach unten" - Helge Schneider "Tropfsteinhöhle" - and Wizo "Raum und
 Zeit." -  have fun . I adore it.  "FOR THE HORDE"- although I only play for the Alliance on EU realm Dun Morogh - but it sounds better^^. 


video


This is my poor translation of Knorkator's "The Way Down" 

Among the grasses, I nourish myself from darkness, many days already possessed and fearless, small world, I can palpate now. And then I find copper, ore,diamonds and granite but part of that victory within me, always redraws me more, Show me the way down, I hate the day, I hate the light, show me the way into the dark where there is loneliness, no mirror for my face, comforting cold relieves the fever deep inside me, damp smell of earth, I can hear my digging, the substance of the soil changes. I'm already through the center? No sense of space and time. Then comes a light and a kangaroo and I know I'm too far!


Apropos WoW , if you know it and you're an "old school" related WoW'er here is an other try, "how to get to old Dalaran", thanks 4 ur patiences to all NON WoW'ers. These are  Mage's Talents.

No doubt about it, this IS the original version of this unbelievable song by Nine Inch Nails , although you might think Johnny C is hurting you... You could have it all, my empire of dirt.... unfortunately this song is about drugs, but all kinds of transitions are reliable.  


video



How to continue this path of passion? May be my dearest friends, Wilco could have a chance to your sensible ears, Let's give peace a chance in a more familiar and even deeper way-
Wilco - "On and On" (2007)

After all these teeeears , let's go to Cure ourselves, due to zember candle time. "Pictures of You" is the fourth and final single from The Cure's album "Disintegration"(1989)

Curing mood, All my friends, with LCD Soundsystem.

Lysergsäure-diethylamid was first synthesized by Albert Hofmann in 1938 from a grain fungus (Claviceps purpurea) that typically grows on rye. His main intention was to obtain a respiratory and circulatory stimulant with no effects on the uterus. By random and caused by an accident he absorbed a small quantity through his fingertips on Apr 19, 1943. This day is still celebrated as: "The bicycle day"--- only by elder Hippies, of course, because its potency may last for years.
Achim Reichel released his album "Die Grüne Reise" "The Green Journey" in 1971 after his career  with the Beatles-live-act support "The Rattles" and "Wonderland" (first appearance of Les Humphries)
This is "As If I Have Seen All This Before" (see also the Main Title of this blog)

video




Another impressive sample of Hofmann's bicycle ride is Silver Appels' first album same named released in1968. 
"Program"

But let's return to DeCember and it's typical kling-klang-klingel sound that leads us to believe, that something peaceful will come to pass. This XX cover by the Gorillaz seems to me the best choice to "Crystalise" my switchback to candle lights.
The original XX version is already posted on my January 2010 archive.

To prevent any discussion on the political orientation of Laibach, they are from Slovenia and represent the music wing of the New Slovenian Art collective. The name "Laibach" is the German name for Slovenia's capital city Ljubljana.
During my time as a music event organizer, I became acquainted with the members of the group on DeCember, 8 1984.
John Lennon was murdered on DeCember 8, 1980. This was my 35th birthday.

and now.... for something completely different. Trashy presents are able to move mountains, so take this advice by Menomena before you start your every year christmas shopping fight.
Here they come with the phenomenal "Caugh Caughing" 2007.

No doubt about it, after this nice persecution they all will be high, like it's easily proofed by Wolf Parade and "Shine a Light" (2005)
If you didn't loose the thread: LIGHT is the magic word here.

Consequently the ironic way of losing my edge. LCD Soundsystem

Unfortunately there are no official videos of the next two US bands.


The Thermals from Portland/Oregon.They call their music No-Fi, may be that makes things a little bit easer to listen to, but I like them. "Never Listen to me" is from their 5th album "Personal Life" (2010)






video



Giant Sand from Tucson (Arizona) were already founded in 1980. Most of their recordings are  alternative country related albums. This track called "Better Man Than Me" is from their latest album Blurry Blue Mountain (2010).

Slowly but surely we reach the end of this Cember post, but before this end to a new beginning,  I would like to spend you another 8:12 (-: minutes in heaven with Opeth and "Windowpane". Swedish 70th spirit transition to a new century.
Many thanks for Your patience, merry cember , and hope we hear us soon.

The Grand Finale: a tribute to Cember's intention to bring a little more light to all of You. patient watchers or even ... listeners. This is the prototype of all ever released musical visualizations.
From 1940 (70th!! birthday this year, hoho) created by Walt Disney with excerpts from the movie FantasiaMusic by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky with his great pop-uluar Nutcracker ballet (premiere on 18, Cember in St Peterburg (Post veröffentlichenRussia). It left a deep impression to see the "Nutcracker" conducted by Kent Nagano with the Berlin Symphonic Orchestra and a good lost friend of mine in Cologne (Germany) 2003.
