Paul McCartney to Jim Capaldi: Now they can sue us. (Nun können sie uns verklagen.)

Jim Capaldi and Rene Tinner visited Paul McCartney. Jim wants to know how Paul got all the Beatles recordings for the Anthology, because some of them were never officially available as records before. Pirated copies. Paul explains, “from the internet”. Laughing. “Now they can sue us” – the nice idea that the thieves can now sue those who took back their property makes for quite a refreshing serenity.

Jim Capaldi? Wonderful songwriter, unfortunately deceased. He wrote for Traffic The low spark of high heeled boys – Reebop Kwaku Baah plays here. In 1983 he recorded the beautiful Masimba bele with Stefan Krachten and Helmut Zerlett at CAN Studio. Reebop, who by the way could cook real soul food, died in the same year at Christmas in a Stockholm studio.

En Elsgar in Berlin, Kari Bremnes, hin auch reissend.

Ihre Alben? Ungehörte Klangqualität, Svarta Bjørn über die Figur der Anna Rebecka Hofstad, die sich Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts als Schlafbaracken-Köchin für die Gleisarbeiter beim Bau der schwedisch-norwegischen Erzbahn verdingte und eine der wenigen Frauen in einer fast vollständig geschlossenen Männerwelt war. karibremnes.no

En Elsgar in Berlin. Sie singt`s auch in Englisch, der Text dazu, mal sehen was der automatische Übersetzer draus macht:

A LOVER IN BERLIN
Lyrics and music: Kari Bremnes

Once l had a lover in Berlin,
said a frail old woman from a table next to mine.
His voice was like an ancient violin
and he spoke to me – that voice … that voice!….

Laura loves Max Bill.

Laura Max BillMet Laura, and so her Max Bill tattoo in Paestum, where she visited Silvia, both Architecture Students from Sao Paulo, staying at the Azienda Bellellil , a little paradise in Paestum. Two serious ladies, beautyfull and so friendly. A rare combination, somehow,  in my country. Both like Oskar Niemeyer,  like me.  Since decades, I hope to visit Brasilia. By the way…Fidel Castro visited Oskar Niemeyer to his 100 Birthday. Powering up with the elevator, he rings the doorbell, a man opens and faints. Fidel Castro, was on the wrong floor and not Oskar Niemeyer open the door. So it was told to me by Renè. I cooked “Gulasch a la Louise”,  Rene`s mother, from St. Gallen, Svizerra, a very fine Lady, and both liked Louise Wolkenstein`s  Gulasch. Merci.

Arleen Schloss & BLÄSSE: Alexander von Borsig`s concert poster.

1980 Berlin Alex 111980 Berlin Alex 11Berlin 1980: Alexander von Borsig, aka Alex Hacke, Einstürzende Neubauten, 14 years, made concert posters for our band   BLÄSSE (Paleness) on tour with Arleen Schloss during his eastern school holiday`s. Düsseldorf, Munich & Vienna which was very special: the concert organizer, owner of Modern Art Gallery in which we played for a huge audience did not pay us. For this we were allowed to eat mushy spaghetti and sleep on the wooden floor in her apartment. The Gallery does not exist anymore, maybe? no respect does not pay. Orphee?   Some weeks before in NYC SAMO© went with me to a Cinema where we saw lot`s of Jean Cocteau films. Alex: Mini Moog, Guitar, Bass, tapes, voice. Richard Michael Hirsch Keyboards.
