Glutamate whoop with joy, whisper, howl, let synthesizers roar, play the drill guitar, use a one string violin, are trashy, damaged, primitive, wonderful, monotonous, disturbing, avant, sexy, ugly, leave no rock unturned and, you can dance to it! The most satisfying Glam-Trashband of recent years, prove to be in dadaist top form on their new album.
Once again the bizarre characters of Glutamat, MP Kopflos, Ronald von den Sternen, Thesa Töd- lich, Peter Palme, Susi Hannover and King Augenring have collected an array of instruments to slash apart the absurdities of the modern world and twisting and merging it together with their own deviant, embarrassing but always cool, cosmos within the confines of the bands’ unique art- rock stage show.
German New Wave synthesizers indulge themselves with their own ridiculous self importance, while the accordion makes a mockery of the traditional chanson sounds as the harmonious arrangements declare an oncoming heavy storm of noise. All this comes together with a mad dancing crowd, dressed in skin tight plastic and leftover newspapers that want to show how music, art, society and politics can belong together and be a mountain of fun at the same time.
So it turns out that “Scheitern inbegriffen” is rock music’s latest helpless attempt to reignite the revolution without the pretence of knowing where the trip will take us. At the end of the day even the lunch special at your favourite Chinese restaurant doesn’t deliver everything it promises – but once you’ve eaten, things will never be the same again!
