Sister Chain and Brother John, live at the Roter Salon, Berlin

Adrian visited a red saloon, and this is what happened: “It’s a Monday evening in Berlin and post-Victorian duo Sister Chain and Brother John launch their new vinyl single ‘Staying in Soho’ (yes a 7 inch single!) at the Roter Salon, a subsection of the legendary Volksbühne. The place is adorned in sumptuous red and Brother John looks resplendent in a red smoking jacket, while Sister Chain hails straight from Spring heeled Jacks’ London smog. Together they are a time travelling classic and unforgettable duo. The evening is supported by a documentary…

Radio On Brandstifter – Interview

On one of those normal anonymous mid-winter days in Berlin, when half the world is coughing and the other half is sneezing, on a day that the sun peeked through the clouds, and the U-Bahn trains were full of people who didn’t know where to go, and thus ended up travelling between stations, on such a mid-winter day that makes you think and hope that springtime is not far away, and that soon the rents might go down again, and Berlin will return to being a dirty poor town, without…

Zsolt Sörés, The Interview

The evening after he had performed together with Faust in the Collegium Hungaricum in Berlin, Zsolt came to our studio for a lengthy interview. He talked about his experiences with Faust, but above all he painted a vivid impression of the life of an artist as a young man in Budapest before and after the regime change in the years 1989-1990. Zsolt talks with great enthousiasm about all the new music that he heard and how this changed his life for ever. Time travelling, spending an evening with friends, music…

Tuesday 28 February at 16:00hrs – Interview with Brandstifter

We are all orphans here, too close to the fire, afraid it will go out soon. Under signs of lost cats in a rain of love letters torn to pieces we hide that the streets are words written in asphalt calligraphy; walking them, you become a reader of hidden language On Tuesday 28 February at 16:00 Berlin Time we will talk with Brandstifter.  We will exclusively discuss the weather and how it connects to the cosmology of the Alltag. So many links  

Radio On Kino – reportage from Mim King interviewed by Adrian Shephard

It’s often the case that visitors to berlin explore and discover more than the residents. The performance artist Mim King has been coming to Berlin years before the wall came down and has a particular relationship with the city. In this interview she positively ‘plops’ herself (her words) as she reports on the kino museum in Potsdamer Platz (free entry on Thursdays 16.00-20:00). ‘It’s full of astronauts, aliens and angels’ – Ever wondered where that armor ended up from ‘wings of desire’ ? Yes it’s here as well ! –…

Adrian Shephard and Simon Wade talk with Jill Newman about Berlin 1980, Ziggy, Iggy and much more

Simon Wade, in Berlin on a visit and Adrian Shephard talked in our Radio On studio with their long time friend Jill Newman. The starting point of the talk is the Berlin connection. Jill came to Berlin in 1980 as a young au-pair girl. She was hosted by a family who lived in a house somewhere near a lake, and found herself in a Cindarella scenario. She talks about the people she met in the post-punk days in Berlin, and what happened one Christmas day very long ago. The second…

Genesis Breyer P-Orridge and Hazel Hill McCarthy Talk on Bight of the Twin at CTM Festival

On the 1st of February Adrian Shephard walked to Kunsthaus Bethanien in Berlin, Kreuzberg. He was going to attend a talk that was organised by the CTM festival. I cite from the CTM information. “Bight of the Twin,” a film created by Hazel Hill McCarthy III, documents McCarthy and P-Orridge’s trip to Benin to explore the origins of the ancient Vodoun (Voodoo) religion. The journey’s focus changed dramatically when, in the process of their research, P-Orridge was “serendipitously initiated” into an ancient ritual known as the “twin fetish.” This practice,…

The Tape Review Show with Loe Lof Lon (MuteAnt Sounds) and Flocculi (Tutore Burlato)

This edition of the Tape Review Show is a-typical. Apart from lecturing about fossiles in space we also review a CDr we received in the post. (Please remind, if you’d like to send something, to write ‘For Rinus’ somewhere on the envelope, and not at the top of the address list like in the picture above.) This is why: Gori Loeloflon wanted his music to be played by our radio very much. In fact he wants that everyone plays his music, and that’s why he gives it away for free….
