THE WIND BLOWS FORWARD by fatagaga, 27.06.2019

If you think of Gretsch as a Rockabilly guitar, which it certainly is, check this out. She can scream & howl too. I love her.


wind blows forward

as the wind blows black thru the sky
impaled demon impacts on demand
spits out morbid flesh
& real physical sore blood
shimmering & translucent red
off-color maroon mucous mules
scummy like the subway
& darker than the universe

we all now witness
this artificial desease
penetrating all in a sudden & overnite
flying into our freak-frenzy archaic faces
burned in our hearts & psychic landscapes

each man says the opposite
of the good & the true & the beautiful
stomps with rusty shaky feet
stinky fingers squeezing & chumping
dancing crumbly carbon bones
on dusty & malodorous carpets
scummy like the subway
& darker than the universe

the wind blows forward & the wind blows back
thru rancid cists & incest fences
condemned ships & open chests
scattering our pale peeled grimacing faces
& burnt out hearts & hollow minds


fatagaga _ DIRTY

DIRTY by fatagaga, 1999

This track was recorded on analogue 4-track-tape which still was part of my workflow those days though I owned a Mac for quite some time … and I already got the MPC 2000 and the Roland MC 505 … working with these units was like playing instruments, the recording was absolutely live … and in these days I finished to play vinyl records …
the piece relates in many ways to the never realized album „Singularity“ of the year 2007

Music from the edge of my mind

Music from the edge of my mind, 1989

Is it a Nobs Nietzsche or a fatagaga track? … I don’t know. It goes back to the year 1989, when „fatagaga“ was yet unborn. I was deeply impressed by Brian Enos Apollo @ those times. This track is made with old analogue organs, detuned guitars and tape echoes, recorded on 4-track-tape, no synths involved …
