dessert? gilbert!

April 13, 2008

already during steven’s nude club, mister hösli started a side project. while the nude club was about energy, party and having a good time, it seemed that hösli found out that he actually knew how to write lyrics. very good lyrics. lyrics one should pay attention to. so a solo project developed – playing in small venues, small theaters, places dedicated to “kleinkunst” – small art – small in audience size and ressources available, that is. but nothing small about his rhymes – excellent musings about life – acid, tender, drunk – and always to the point. in the beginning he did use a stage name for this at the time side project: gilbert dessert (and i remember that his first public appearance actually happened in front of a backdrop painted by davix: a giant strawberry cake). and he even published under this name a tape. i guess this must be now a real rare treat – so i ripped it for your pleasure – let me present to you: the great gilbert dessert in: keiner fällt tiefer. ripped from tape as mp3@224 you can get it here (link expired). enjoy!

cadeau!

allright, i am somewhat behind schedule, i.e. i wanted to post quite a lot more (and quite a bit of text to balance all that music). but then life does not always go the way i want it to. actually it never does – right? and right now i am already hiding somewhere in the snow for the next couple of days – so you just get this little post to keep you entertained for the coming days.

so it’s already this time of the year of presents and all that again – so you, dear reader, will get a present, too. a very nice one, i might add. i thought – regardless of what you do or do not celebrate at this time of the year you could use some beauty, some deepness, something that combines flavours from all over the world, some breathtaking voices: some dead can dance!

and not just some recording, but a fantastic live-recording that has been published as a limited edition cd (and which is sold out, of course). so the quality is excellent, the music and the playing and singing is of course too – but well, you are missing the beautiful packaging…

so here you get part one of dead can dance live in lille, france, 2005. and here you get part two.

and if you would like more information on the artists, see what other limited edition recordings you can still buy from them (and they are worth every penny) and which ones you missed, please visit their website.

so something to listen to for later, when the overexcited kids are finally in bed and you made yourself another mug of whatever hot stuff you like and you sit in the living room with the candles slowly burning down and the fulll moon is shining outside and you start reminiscing tenderly…
