O Tannenbaum

22 October 2010

I'll be DJing tonight [Fri Oct 22, 2019] down at O Tannenbaum (Sonnenallee 27, Neukölln).  I've been hanging out there lately because Pieter plays thick funk from Mali, we argue about Iggy, drink strong Belgian beers and they have girls. And deer.


In our last episode: Timeblind is awoken by the sounds of the Nigerian Mafia kicking in his door, intent on recovering the Reel to Reel Tape he stole the previous evening from the Unarius Academy of Science while attending a Black Tie only event at the German Embassy in Abuja.

His cover as a Disk Jockey blown, the next 24 hours is a whirl wind blur of chase scenes, gunfire, fast women, fast edits, wackawacka guitar, bongo solos and eery string fills. Arriving at last at an outpost on the Congolese border, he finally listens to the secret tape recording still in his grasp:

A bizarre mélange of Afrokrautrock, the Fufu rhythms of West Africa, Mofongo, Tribal Arrachacha from DF, the mystical sounds of Fara and Kudzu, sadly incomprehensible (but curiously danceable) digital noise, the Transmissions of The Poets from The Other Planets and a bunch of Ghetto shit. Profanity, Brief Nudity, Parental Discretion is advised.

(The weird thing is that even though I just made this shit up while under the influence of coffee, Unarius really did have an office in Abuja!)

      "happy" halloween. I'm off to Waxtreatment to see Shackleton and see if he can convince me to move to Schillerkiez or not. I'm not feeling it down there, but he loves it.

    • Welcome to the West

      I was in a bar a few weeks back, drunk, talking to some people and listening to this girl tell us about growing up in East Germany. Just to paint a picture: she was very attractive, blond, very lively and also a bit drunk. She mentioned the dolls that they used to have, an Eastern German version of the Barbie Doll and I accidentally joked something like "were the dolls named Helga ?" — she slapped me. Lightly, but to ...

    • Mauerfall: people still have the power

      I never get tired of watching this. No-one is sure of what to do tonight here in Berlin. I suppose just wander around and look for random and true emotion.  The planned actions seem too planned, though I will drop by the mauer-mob project. What might happen if we riot against the banks:   One more crowd pleaser, this from Goodbye Lenin. The mother has been in a coma and missed the fall of the wall and re-unification. Under doctor's ...
