The last vodka

Germany. A Tuesday. “See you at one of the parties, then – maybe Zeche Carl next week?” she said as she was heading off. “I’d rather not”, I replied. “I really don’t wan’t to go there anymore.” She shrugged. “Maybe Eisenlager? Or Matrix?” – “No, definitely not. I can’t afford all the anti-depressants I would need […]

Mask of a Hero.

For seldom has a video clip by an industrial band contained a layer of humor so exquisite. Funker Vogt’s video, “The Firm”, is a brilliant homage to the ingenious British movie “Monty Python and the Holy Grail”. And even more so, it is a brave statement against gender stereotypes and homophobia. Men walk towards each […]

  “In the face of contemporary pecksniffian anaesthesia we’ll erect a whole gallery of forebears, heros who carried on the struggle against bad consciousness but still knew how to party, a genial gene pool, a rare and difficult category to define, great minds not just for Truth but for the truth of pleasure, serious but not […]

I swear to escalate everything.

I, will no longer depend on anyone to entertain me. I am going for the people, the music, the atmosphere and the experience. I will talk to strangers. I will increase my happiness by spreading happiness among others. I will dress up. I will not behave.

Tonight I will be legendary and I swear to escalate everything.

Pulp-O-Mizer - Straftanz: the truth about the name.

We never answered, no matter how often we were asked. The question is the most obvious one and yet we never publicly talked about it and never planned to. But due to recent events we decided to break the myth and resolve the riddle: What does STRAFTANZ actually mean? It was 2006 and we were […]

I was astonished. I didn’t really expect anything to happen, as the idea for this was very much a shot in the dark and felt pretty much far out. On the far out part we were actually wrong. After we asked people to apply for an internship at our project two weeks ago, we got […]

    This is not a message to the uniform fetishists. I do understand all of that. It’s not my cup of tea, but your love of stylish Hugo Boss stuff is somewhat understandable. That’s all sexy. We are friends. This is a message to people trying to make their band to appear more “industrial” […]

owl. low res.

Musicians should pay house visits to their fans in order to escalate their dwelling spaces. Feel your intellectual musings on Facebook aren’t getting through to your crowd? Scared your MP3s aren’t ricocheting off the walls loudly enough? Petrified your precious groupies are slipping into mundanity? Feel your cyber is lacking the men? How do you […]

It is not enough to look at it. It is not enough to join in the song and raise the hands. It is not enough to be someone, or to have a name. Escalation does not mean to be where the action is. Escalation is the action and the reason. Nobody is even allowed to […]
