most people got their donuts on this part of the body

and this is the musicvideo:

there is no piece of rope long enough
for you to choke all the necks that
deserve to be choked

and there is no ray of hope for the many
who can’t cope with the laws of
nature and of man

make up a story to explain
it might alleviate the pain
but anyone with half a brain
can see it is just a fantasy

easy answers will placate
so they don’t mind manipulation
by the power-hungry
hypocriti-politicians

there is nowhere to go when you
already know that you’ll end up right
where you began

and there is no tiny mole in a hole
who controls what the weather will be
like on groundhog day

oh…

alright, that was part 2 of 2, part 1 is here .

i hope you liked my writings about my excursions into art land…

nat in art land 1 – the red paintings

hey artlover and music freaks, i´ve been VERY busy, so i owe you some posts, but first things first:

do you know THE RED PAINTINGS ? i wrote about them in this blog earlyer.

i stumbled over this amazing band a few years ago, my friend devi, who also is a blogger ( go here:

https://kulturrausch.wordpress.com/) saw them at whitby goth weekend two years ago

and she was like: “natascha, we have to go to see this band, they have costumes and bodypainting on stage,and the music is brilliant!”,here is a bit more about that.

so on may 20 , the red paintings had an amazing show in hamburg at monkeys music club 

and my friend devi and i went there and i was happy to live paint with the band at the show.

i arrived around 8pm at the venue, got to the merch table to be brought to the backstage area. this really is not as exciting as it sounds, just a room with some mirrors and some old couches. the band was already getting dressed, alix was doing her make up, trash was getting his glow-eyes-skirt ready and i was handed a black morph suit and a mask. YAY COSTUMES! i brought some of my own paint, but they also had some (in the process of painting i mixed them later). they had no volunteer to be the human canvas this time,but i got a big canvas right next to the stage in front of the audience. the band started playing and my “job” during the first 4 songs was to walk through the people and creep them out a little bit. thanx to the mask i was wearing, that was a lot of fun. most people back off immediately when you come near them and look weird.

the music …oh the music, this band creates such beautiful music, it was really not hard to paint with this music. the music practically painted my painting…does that make sense?

i painted a treehugging girl on a bleeding tree, don´t know where she came from…well,yes i do…she came through the music!

THE RED PAINTINGS on bandcamp:

https://theredpaintings.bandcamp.com/album/the-revolution-is-never-coming 

when i began to paint the blood dripping from the ripped roots of the tree the band stopped playing for a minute or so (it felt like forever) and trash was like: “*sigh…beautiful…let´s just stand here and watch the painting…” it was absolutely silent…i was so grateful to wear a mask,because i was smiling all around my head… it did not feel uncomfortable, it felt weird and great and i loved it ;).

Image may contain: 2 people, people smiling

trash also loved the painting and they took it with them. i could do that every day, it was so much fun. a guy asked ME for an autograph, how weird is this?

well…if you ever hear about THE RED PAINTINGS in your town: GO THERE! they are an unbelieveable amazing band and they are currently on tour in the UK

Das Fluff – Post Punk Electro Filth

Let me introduce to you: the she-devil herself Dawn Lintern with her band post punk electro band Das Fluff.

‘The deranged love child of Debbie Harry and Freddie Mercury set to the melodies of Goldfrapp’-  seesound.co.uk

 

Das Fluff concerts are quite a wild ride. I remember the first time I saw them live last winter. I was pretty blown away by the show as I had never seen anything like it. Dawn’s stage presence is mesmerising, almost intimidating.*

Together with Christian Ruland on the electronic front and Stefan ‘Misty’ Missfeld on guitar Dawn Lintern creates an atmosphere on stage that strikes you with awe – in the best possible way. It’s something you just have to experience yourself live really but here’s a taste.

The latest music video of das Fluff for the song Popstar User from the album The Flower With Knife was just released tonight, check it out:

 

Das Fluff have already toured several countries in Europe, Asia and America in the past years but are about to conquer (for them) new territory on March 31: HAMBURG!

DF_AS310317

 

Upcoming shows: 

March 30 @ Wild At Heart, Berlin

with Drummer Morgan King

 

March 31 @ Astra Stube, Hamburg

with Telomer

 

April 22 @ Electrowerkz, London

with Healthy Junkies and Dice People

 

 

 

If you have the chance to catch Das Fluff live, go for it, enjoy the ride! They will wake you up from your hibernation, that’s for sure. Go, go, go!

 

All the love.

xx RAH!

 

*In the past year I had the pleasure to get to know Dawn personally and I can consider her my friend. Behind the she-devil mask I see a very inspiring, warm and strong human being. A woman to look up to and a great person to be around. I’m happy to have her in my life.
