september song – franz treichler sings kurt weill

after lotte lenya‘s interpretation you can now have a listen to the interpretation of kurt weill songs by the young gods. different interpretations, for sure. i really love the version of speak low and september song – both songs the young gods usually still play live – speak low is actually (in again a very different version) on their brand new record knocking on wood. not much more i want to say to the young gods. since they constitute part of my personal pantheon of musical gods there will be some more about them later (including some out of print / unreleased stuff – just to keep you interested).

this record has been recorded (in the studio) after a special concert (well, i think it was actually two concerts) presenting kurt weill songs – together with element of crime (see below). they actually played this show just a couple of years back again at a kurt weill festival in germany.

the tracklist reads as follows:

SIDE 1
PROLOGUE
SALOMON SONG
MACKIE MESSER
SPEAK LOW

SIDE 2
ALABAMA SONG
SEERÄUBER JENNY
OUVERTURE
SEPTEMBER

ripped from vinyl@224, you can get the young gods play kurt weill here. enjoy!
