* Celebrating the Hedonism of the Depressed:The Saddest Music in the World Contest #IV (Selection) *
Here´s a selection of the songs I played at the “saddest music in the world contest #4” @ roter salon, Volksbühne last saturday. Some new ambient tracks are featured here by Rafael Irisarri or Ian William Craig, french & italian film music, moody tracks by Annabel (Lee) or Witch, loner folk & Blues by Ed Askew, Jandek, Frank Fairfield as well as excursions to Gospel, african & asian artists – and a small homage to David Bowie with a hardly known track from his first band “the riot squad”.
The title is a quote by thomas ebermann & the cover is a pic of Hasenheide at a cold full moon Night
