12.04.11 - WORDS ABOUT WHATEVER
kleiner text:
Wenn der Zweck die Mittel heiligt, dann haben wir es hier mit einer sich selbst in den Schwanz beissenden Doppelfrechheit zu tun. Der allmächtige Dilletantismus und das über dem Können stehende einfach-machen sind Zündkerze, lange Leitung und Teilchenbeschleuniger zugleich. Vielleicht ein Keyboard, vielleicht eine Triangel. Vielleicht der Schmadder aus alter Cola und Fusseln auf dem Boden in der Ecke da drüben. Aus allem kann man eine dumme Idee machen. Die Kid Ikarus Halbplaybackshow auf Abwegen. Es lebe die dumme Idee.

31.03.11 - PARIS, OLD SCHOOL



11.02.11 - PIXIES
pretty last minute. the KID will, in some form, yet unknown to himself, take part in tomorrow's actions at schokoladen. it's a Pixies cover evening, introduced by some covers of The Replacements. it will be fun.
