lyrics:
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…

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

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

review: Donut Heart in Hamburg

Donut Heart als Vorgruppe von Shh…Diam! im Linken Laden in Hamburg am 30.7.2016.

Donut Heart, eine zuckersüße Versuchung der anderen Art. Hat man das Vergnügen, sich diese berliner Band live anzusehen, wird man schnell feststellen wie energiegeladen die eigentlich 3 Frontfrauen sind. Am Konzert im Linken Laden waren leider nur 2 dabei, was dem Auftritt aber keineswegs geschadet hat. Mit einem Schlagzeug und einer Ukulele  haben sie die Menge im Linken Laden in Hamburg begeistert. 
Authentisch, sympathisch und voller Leidenschaft, so habe ich die Band wahrgenommen. Der Musikstil ist schwer zu beschreiben, im Linken Laden kamen die Songs sehr rockig rüber, was aber an der Größe des Raumes und an der Soundanlage lag. Der Raum war einfach zu klein für diese Band. Wer offen für neues ist und sich gerne überraschen lässt kann mit Donut Heart garantiert nichts falsch machen.

dies sind die zwei “fan videos” die ich (nat) von dem auftritt gemacht habe:
