october 6 - 1999
my new cd “good morning story” is getting out now after tone casualties have used my original mastertape
for the redone glas master. several times the release was delayed from june till october but now it seems that
we left all obsticals behind us. at least the critics about this album are positively amazing... same goes for
u-she’s new single “sunday morning” being released on emi germany in a few days – to what i am informed
at least. there is also another piece on, “la premiere” which i can especially recomend to you.
moving my studio to the country side has caused some unforseen changes as you can imagine. i had to stop
all live appearences for this year and so the other can mates were touring the can solo projects without me.
there have been no quarrels or whatsoever you might think, it was just due to the stop of ‘magazine’ and my
continuing reorientation towards something new. now that arthur schmidt has taken magazine out of the net
i will present sooner or later the performance from frankfurt, march 28 this year recorded with 3 cameras
and probably the best live set we did.
the new installed link ‘visuals’ is growing. to my surprise a rehearsel from november 1984 together with jah
wobble on bass and of course jaki liebezeit plus michael karoli has turned out better than i thought – at least
in some parts. thanks to the wonderful camera work(a prehistoric vidicon device) of karl lippegaus you can
catch a glimpse of the can studio in those days with its special atmosphere involved. but i have not forgotten
to get back to a live tv program here on this site. one of the ideas is to invite musicians and journalists to an
internet talkshow hoping on a peppered combat between both – especially after having finished a tour which
some journalists didn’t like. another idea is driving a camera in a trolly through the night between 3 and 5 in
the morning visiting some night owls, for example at gasoline stations, studios, garbage places etc...sort of a
very early wake up program if you don’t mind.
and i also want to let you know what a lucky man i am having drew doing all my server artworks at the
moment. since he told me how to escape an alligator this animal became more and more synonymous to
various kinds of conspirational chat moments which some kind of visitors can’t or don’t want to
understand. it simply reflects our rather sinister kind of humour. for those of you who only are looking up
the news page: drew has installed an applet which will tell you the continuing changes of this website in a
cheers and bye for now
