MISS RÉBELLION DES HORMONES
(“Miss Hormonrebellion”). A rebellious teenage-girl’s got the devil in her body. That’s nothing more than the October Revolution in the world of hormones.
DER STRICHERJUNGE MIT DER RAUCHERLUNGE
Françoise has received a special gift for Christmas: a trumpet, and it sounds like the young gay hustler with his smoker’s lung is playing the trumpet. Even though the sound really reminds some people (at least Brezel) of Miles David (ahem!). Brezel himself performs the song in an unbelievably laconic way.
The pure desire for an absolutely materialistic, superficial and senseless life. “Let’s spruce up our disgusting lifes with a little bit of plastic beauty.”
KOMPLEX MIT DEM SEX
The lyrics of this song are a bit cryptical and – well yes – profound. Performed with sugar-coated voice. In a world everything spinning around SEX, the girl doesn’t know where to position herself anymore. Is she a woman? Is she a man? Is she an animal?
Françoise has always been fascinated by the Lolita theme. Her first band was named “Les Lolitas”, she even crocheted a lifesize doll called “Wollita” (means Woolita). This song is about a “Lolita”-phantom. The beautiful girl lingers the streets at night, driving all the men crazy. But in the moment presuming they could get hold of her, she disappears in a cloud of smoke.
KÜSSE AUS DER HÖLLE DER MUSIK
This is a song about dead rockstars. And who knows, how many of them were killed by taking drugs and alcohol or cruising around way too fast?
PLUS MINUS NULL
Now it’s the time to put all the positive and negative aspects of love and relationships on a lists. All summed up with a calculator. Result: Plus minus zero!
What is described here are dark cinematic scenes including dangerous night cruises by car. Everything has to become a bit more brighter. “More light!”
TA VOIX AU TÉLÉPHONE
2000 km separate them. He’s standing in a phone booth and is calling his girlfriend. But they can’t really hear each other. He’s deeply concerned – and jealous. She feels very distant from him. “There are too much birds sitting on the wires”.
PATTY HEARST *
Last year Stereo Total hosted a Patty-
BABY REVOLUTION *
The lyrics of this “soft rock-track” is a collage of textlines taken from the gay porno movie “Raspberry Reich” by Bruce La Bruce. “Sex is the opium of the masses.”
RELAX BABY BE COOL
An extreme minimalistic version of Serge Gainsbourg’s song. However the lyrics were changed a little bit (“Sorry, Serge!”). The original text covers the Ku-Klux-Klan, this version of the song tells the story of a slightly paranoid woman, getting lost in a crowd of people trying to calm down herself.
In Singapur chewing gum is forbidden by law. As soon as Françoise saw a police man there, she stopped chewing immediately. She has been loving chewing gum all her lifetime. In kindergarten she found old ones, sticking under the school tables, and chewed them again. But the explosion of the “bubbles” at the end of the song rather sounds like the detonation of an H-Bomb anyway.
This Punk- & Rock’n'Roll-smasher is performed by San Reimo and Angie Reed, who formerly supported Stereo Total on stage as Casio-player and woman on bass. It rocks! Kicks Asses! This is modern music!
* The songs “Baby Revolution” and “Patty Hearst” are taken from the radio play “Patty Hearst – Sooner or later we all become terrorists” produced by Stereo Total and Bayrischer Rundfunk (having its premiere August, 24th 2007 on BR).
