neue musik: Sticky Biscuits – EVEN THE CUTEST KITTENS

Veröffentlicht am 19.06.2017

whether you’re straight or queer, poly or mono, here’s a lil SEX HEALTH PSA in the form of a poppy chiptune disco song to listen to before you go out venturing into the big wild world hungry for adventures ~(‾▿‾~)(~‾▿‾)~

from our EP ‘Public Service Arousements’: https://stickybiscuits.bandcamp.com/a…

LYRICS:

Marc: I had a date last night
Naomi: well we have an open relationship so that’s all right
Marc: so we went home… sorry I… didn’t send a text
Naomi: no worries hey I trust you just tell me what happened next
Marc: well we had sex, didn’t make it to bed, did it on the stairs
Naomi: wait I think you skipped over a little part back there

Naomi: the part where you ask about their sexual history
Marc: I kind of like it when there’s a lit bit of mystereeeeee

Naomi: they told you bout the birds n bees
but didn’t talk to you about STD’s
but like my mom always says
even the cutest kittens have fleas

Marc: I didn’t want to kill the mood and be
“Hey do you get tested regularly?”
you’re overdoing it with your paranoia
a little chlamydia won’t destroy ya

Naomi: you might wanna be a lot more persistant
chlamydia’s getting antibiotic resistant
and girls have higher chances of getting infected
so better think twice before you injected…

Marc: I had a raincoat on so where is the big risk?
Naomi: There’s also oral infection with things like Syphiliiiiis

before you get down to oralize
see to it that you verbalize
Because, and even your mom agrees
even the cutest kittens have fleas

Always talk to your lovers please
even the cutest kittens have fleas
before you get down on ur knees
even the cutest kittens have fleas
everybody sing with me
even the cutest kittens have fleas
everbody sing with me
even the cutest kittens have fleas
everybody sing with us
even the cute…..st kittens have fleas

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…

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.

 

 

 

Ahoy, my name is Rah.

Hi. I’m Rah. Rah fookin’ Hell

I’m the new one. Today I was kindly added to the New Artist Army blog by Natascha Artworx.

So let me introduce myself…

I’m a musician. My favouritest thing to do in the whole world is to play the drums and to make people dance!

I also play a bit of ukulele.

I enjoy making people happy in general. It makes me happy. I like to make this scary world a little brighter so I do what I can. And I think this blog is a good opportunity to contribute at least a little.

I live in Berlin and am well connected to the music, art and comedy scene here. So I will keep you updated on all the hot shit that’s going down pretty much every day in Belin. And I’ll feed you information about events and projects all over the planet of artists that are worth checking out.

I currently play in a quirky all chicks uke rock band called Donut Heart. Nat recently wrote about a show we played with Sh…Diam in Hamburg at Linker Laden.

And about our CD release gig in October 2016.

Our album is available for streaming and to download right here on Bandcamp.

Ad Astra Per Absurdum… This is Donut Heart.

Once a month I host an open stage called Uke Boogie at Lagari in Neukölln. As the name already gives away, it’s an open mic night for mainly ukuleles – and other instruments that aren’t guitars (it’s on every second Thursday of the month, next one: April 13. (I’ll tell you more about that in a separate blog post)).

I’m also involved in the Freudian Slip Club Berlin founded by  my wonderful friend Liliana Velásquez. The Slip Club deserves a separate post sometime in the near future. Hang tight.

I’m volunteering for the NGO Sea Shepherd trying to save marine wildlife. Because when the ocean dies, we die. And mateys, it does not look promising, let me tell you that.

What else is there people could be interested in knowing about me? I’m 25 soon, I study event management at Deutsche Pop Akademie and I’m in an on-off relationship with veganism.

I grew up on a pretty remote farm near Eschwege (which is somewhere in the middle of Germany). In 2013 Amanda Palmer and the Grand Theft Orchestra came to my dad’s barn to play a set and party with 70 strangers in the middle of nowhere. That’s where the name Eschvegas comes from which I still like to use when I refer to my hometown. I like the irony as Eschvegas and Las Vegas could hardly be more different.

afp

Viva Eschvegas. Amanda Palmer on a pile of pretty people.

That’s it for now. More will be revealed as I blog, my friends.

I’m excited to get started.

All the love!

Rah

NIGHT OF THE LIVING SELFIE

14670651_1776578779269431_5162550180550615487_n

Night of the Living Selfie: Natascha Artworx, Donut Heart, SPT, Bang
Natascha*Artworx’s “Internuts Selfie” exhibition is a disturbing and enlightening examination of self-projection in the Internet age, on display at the Kapernaumkirche in Berlin from 31/10 to 25/11/2016. In her adaptation of selfie digital photographs into acrylic paintings, the Hamburg-based artist portrays real people as they see themselves, or as they would like to be seen. On the night of the vernissage, which just happens to be Halloween night, local musicians Stephen Paul Taylor and Donut Heart will haunt the church along with Adrian Bang and another special guest or two. The band will perform as living selfies, dressed in white to act as the canvas for Bang’s psychedelic video projections. With so many layers of selfie inception, everyone (audience, artists, and even the artworks themselves) will be invited to take a healthy look at their own egos and think about how they project! Entry is free, but donations will be collected to benefit a local organization that provides support for people with eating disorders.

feel invited, show up, show some love

The Sinful Path/Der Sündige Pfad

sept. 23, 2016 in hamburg/harburg
“the sinful path” was the title of a project/art exhibition at a swingers club in hamburg/harburg
with me (natascha artworx), marina schreckling and holger musiol.
special thanx to christoph osburg/osburgfilm for shooting the video of our event.

Auf dem „Sündigen Pfad“ werden sie von Natascha Artworx, Marina Schreckling und Holger Musiol, zwei Malerinnen und ein Performance – Künstler aus Hamburg zu einer Ausstellung geleitet.

Gefunden hatte sich das Trio durch ein Künstlertreffen und die Idee des sündigen Pfades als gemeinsames Projekt entwickelt, indem Natascha Artworx in ihren Bildern die Frage aufwirft „Kann denn Liebe Sünde sein“, während Marina Schreckling die Abgründe der Seele und Laster, wie z.B. Eitelkeit und Gier des Menschen, in düsteren Werken einfängt.

Um dennoch zu gewährleisten, dass niemand durch das Betreten des sündigen Pfades zu Schaden kommt, hat sich Holger Musiol heuer im Heiligen Compostelanisches Jahr bereit erklärt, prophylaktisch den Jacobsweg zu beschreiten. Direkt dokumentiert wird der Pilgergang unterhttps://suendigerpfad.wordpress.com/

note from me: that was a fun exhibition in a fun location. next and last exhibition of this year will be in berlin at halloween…i will keep you informed…

Berlin: Donut Heart CD release Party

Donut Heart has been busy spreading their love on 7 awesome tracks! Come get a copy of the very first CD they created and celebrate the ukulele rock release with them…there will be glitter! and a DJ! and donuts!

from Donut Heart:

Recorded in April by Sandro Chiaravalle at T berlin, our album was mixed by said audio wiz and then sent to mujician Josh Gura in Sweden for some intensive mojo treatment. The packaging features Marion Barry’s awesome donut logo, another donut designed by Lesley (having no idea what she was doing), and a beautiful painting by Jack Bride, which depicts a scene dreamt by Dara of a stoned unicorn pony blistening to our music in the form of a donut on a Fisher Price record player in a majestic psychedelic wonderland. Rah found a place that makes CDs out of black plastic to look like little vinyl records, so yeah…wait till you see/hear/experience!!

This project has been entirely self-funded and DIY, so we’re charging a small entry price at the release to help cover costs. But if you really can’t afford it, you won’t be turned away.

peace out (far out),
Donut Heart!

and look, how beautiful the cds are
