    RADIO ON
    … tells the story of a radio DJ investigating the mysterious death of his brother, following his journey from London to Bristol through a bleak depiction of late 70’s Britain soundtracked by Kraftwerk, Bowie, Devo and Lene Lovich. Directed by filmmaker and novelist Chris Petit with cinematography by Martin Schäfer, Radio On is a unique Anglo-German collaboration and a rare example of the British road movie. The film presents a nation in transition, revealing its cryptic and pervasive spirit of disenchantment and the looming spectres of industry and urbanism, all encompassed by the vibrant transmissions of the radio.
     
    With special thanks to the British Film Institute.

    TASSEOMANCY

    TASSEOMANCY, das sind die kanadischen Zwillingsschwestern und ehemaligen Mitglieder der Cold-Wave Band AUSTRA Sari und Romy Lightman sowie Johnny Spence am Keyboard und Evan Cartwright am Schlagzeug.
     
    Ihr Albumtitel “Do Easy” (erschienen im November 2016 auf Bella Union / PIAS) basiert auf einer Kurzgeschichte von William S. Burroughs “The Discipline of D.E. (Do Easy)“, in der er die Kunst des “leichten“ Lebens erklärt und lehrt. “Leicht“ in dem Sinne, Alltagsdinge immer in der effektivsten Art und Weise zu tun und dabei ruhig und sanft vorzugehen. Diese Philosophie hatte Romy so berührt, dass sie sich auf den Weg gemacht hat, die “leichte“ Lebensart zu finden.
     
    Die musikalische Unterstützung von Brodie West (Altsaxophon), Ryan Driver (Flöte), Simone Schmidt (Stimme eines jungen Neil Young im Song “Dead Can Dance & Neil Young”) und Alex Cowan der Band Blue Hawaii hat dem Album seine romantische Aura verliehen und “Do Easy“ zu Dream Pop vom Feinsten gemacht.
