Recorded by rlw (RALF L. WECHOWSKY of P16.D4) and srmeixner (Stephen Meixner of CONTRASTATE) between 2010 and 2013. The first emanation of the project came up with two
versions of one mutual piece (Sunglasses… by rlw, Wishing… by srm). The core structural elements of the release can be seen in srm´s meditation on sentiment (old hearts…) and rlw´s textased pieces (Prach-tjunge, Alle, Definition). More instrumentally based are Gummidorf (srm) and Spaßbremse (rlw). Beyond this a signment both artists have touched all pieces in various ways, as indicated indirectly by the following pandects & interpolations:
RLW (Dec 2010) …Some weeks ago I did a horribl e dj-set for a 75th birthday celebration, including Heino and other German schlager cruelties. it was so terrible! maybe I'll go back to the pieces i used for this event some day .
This stuff is awful enough to make another use of it.
SRM (Jan 2011): I have been thinking about your description of German schlager cruelties and how horribl e it was and awful enough to do something with. Maybe there is a possible project there?
