Description

They have been playing their songs for 33 years. And bring out their records, just as they imagine, one by one. There is little comparable, no other German-speaking band, that would bring this strange mixture of folk rock and blues, art rock and children's song, noise and lard melody into the world without it? as it seems ? just a moment to think about whether or not this fits into the zeitgeist, whether it's good for new or old media, whether someone understands it, whether they even understand it themselves, whether it's sad or funny, ugly or beautiful, deep-minded or spinning. At first glance, everything looks like denial: they refuse to do the same thing all the time, and they refuse to reinvent themselves. They refuse to adapt to the streaming and YouTube landscape. They don't give their music for advertising. They prefer to play three times in the Tempodrom than once in the Max-Schmeling-Halle. They can't be pinn and so on and so forth, you could continue it for a long time, but that can't be the secret of their success, these are all just things that aren't done, but you're loved only for what you do, not for what you leave. And so a different image of this band emerges: a band that has such an unmistakable style in terms of song, sound and attitude that you only have two options: You can like it or not. Never are ELEMENT OF CRIME just ?somehow interesting? or ?also quite okay?. And there we would be at ? Sheep, monsters and mice?. Is this a reference to the previous work ? Favourite colors and animals?? Hardly. A monster is not an animal and a mouse is not a color. But it's certainly not a random choice. It is the title of a song on the album that tells of dreams, the world 'behind closed lids?,' in which own, different laws apply, dictated by the subconscious, controlled and thwarted by the super-i. This is also a good metaphor for the poetic principle in Element of Crime: the musical and textual work with associations, subconscious, improvised elements, the like random interlocking of the stylistic means, the working with and breaking through known patterns, the kaleidoscope of timbres, melodies, improvised cacophonies, the whole psychedelic instrumentation with which this band has been dealing with for so long without twitching.? Sheep, monsters and mice?: There are soul ballads like ? On the first Sunday after the end of the world?, chansons like ? Before I met you?, folk songs like ? The party at the Silesian Gate?, pub rock crackers like ? A bread and a bag?, desert rock cutters like ? Stone, scissors, paper? and much more. And then everything is different again, if at ? On the first Sunday? Jakob Ilja's art-rockbroken guitar saws into the solo part, if at ? Before I met you? mill the Viennese violins into the last stanza, if at ? The party at the Silesian Gate? a psychedelic blaband swaying through the picture, things are constantly happening that you can't be prepared for, Richard Pappik drags the tempi and accelerates, as it must be, juggling rhythms and timbres, and even playing his dirty game with a rock music that is constantly redefined on this record, and Sven Regener's creaking voice distributes poetry to it, as it must be. Music and lyrics, they tumbling together into the rising sun and support each other like two exhausted partygoers after a long night at the Silesian Gate. Broken birds supported by their families, the Hendl-Jahn, a free cigar when buying a new life, where storms, lightning and thunder are not weather, but an arsenal against good mood, the woman from the supermarket, Black Friday at the Sterni in the late ... who, please, puts such a thing in such wonderful-sounding texts?? Sheep, monsters and mice? has become a long, ultra-psychedelic album, the longest in the band's history. It's as if ELEMENT OF CRIME wanted to stretch the album format for which this band was created from the beginning like no other, to the extreme, maybe one last time, you don't know what will happen with it, the world changes. But, and this is the crucial thing, the songs remain. Charlotte Goltermann (Berlin, 2018)
