Oh gosh...
- 1 EP and three singles with "Lackschaden" and 1 strictly limited live album
- 1 EP and two LP Releases with Böhm-Kalpen-Maass, 2 singles (only available as download) (http://www.boehm-kalpen-maass.de/musik.htm)
- Next year we'll be recording a heavy metal/hard rock EP with our new project "Semen of the Drone" (which is BKM without Felix). We just finished the test recordings. :-)

- Oh, and I forgot "Strandsalon", a very experimental chillout track, released as a single by Felix and me: http://www.lastfm.de/music/Electro+Brothers/_/Strandsalon?ac=strandsalon

Busy days, eh? :)
So basically Böhm-Kalpen-Maass coudl be called also Felix and the Drone Semens? :)

Yes, Zak. The only trio left will form in two weeks "Die drei von der Funkstelle" (ein Wortspiel, "die drei von der Tankstelle" ist ein alter Film). Let's see (hear), what will develop from that. :-)

I went to Sylt the other week. On the List harbour and at the Ellenbooge - the northernmost point of Germany - I couldn't stop thinking about Wir gehen an Bord and Könige im Norden.

Looking forward to hear more music!
But we can't be quite sure.

I think your records age well. They're what I call "real music", made from real emotions (whatever they may be - in the case of BKM mainly joy and longing and masculine energy I guess) and exhibiting a joy at playing music.

I'm also reminded of Böhm Kalpen Maass when listening to my latest album discovery - The Blue Album by the legendary Russian group Akvarium. Even though the songs and the emotions are very different, there's the same sense of uncontrived expression and the joy of music.

I also like a lot of songs and album that don't have this quality, which I love for other reasons, but when you have this quality it's nearly always worth listening to.
But we can't be quite sure.

By the way: where are the Venito lyrics from? I think I heard they were written by Horatio, but I can't find them on Google. Did you compose them yourself, with inspiration from Horatio?
But we can't be quite sure.

Guess I gotta learn the language to understand. Google Translate didn't help much  :D

This is the German translation of the first six lines we used, but I guess, it won't help you:

Sag “nein”, wenn Du spröde bist: Wenn Du es nicht bist, sollst Du kommen.
Welche Freude macht es, ohne jeden festen Halt sein Wort zu geben?
Dies ist für die Liebenden der einzig heftige Schmerz überhaupt,
wenn eine plötzlich dem hoffnungsvoll Wartenden ihr Kommen versagt.
Wie viele Seufzer lassen ihn sich auf dem ganzen Lager hin und her wälzen,
wenn er glaubt, es finde anderswo Aufnahme, welche zu ihm nicht gekommen ist!


I've found this English translation:

Say " No! " if thou art unkind; or, if kind thou art, then come!
But why take delight in waste of random words?
His grief alone of all doth rack the lover's heart,
if his mistress fails his hopes and comes not to the tryst.
What sighs shake his frame as he tosses o'er all his couch,
when the thought that now some unknown lover is admitted torments him [even to death!]
