Lord Litter says it in the introduction of the show. “In the beginning of the 1980s while everyone in Berlin played punk or electro, Â Bollerman played everything that came along.” And goes on to tell and show that Bollerman were one of the most underestimated bands around. Berlin bands like EinstÃ¼rzende Neubauten or Die TÃ¶dliche Doris were very much more visible and remembered until today. They represented one aspect of Berlin that is easier to understand for non-Berliners like me. But the world of the Eckkneipe, the so-called Berliner ‘Schnautze’ (loudmouth), the poverty, the badly heated apartments, the Berlinness of being a Berliner is a thing that can hardly be grasped, if you’re not born and raised in this town we all love so much.
The music of Bollerman hints at 1930s cabaret and at science-fiction nostalgia. The lyrics are in German, and if you don’t know German television, where in every movie the actors talk German, be their names John Wayne, Marlon Brando, Catherine Deneuve, Sophia LorenÂ or Marcello Mastroianni, you will loose some of the subtleties.
Anyway, this is about Berlin, it is about a part of Berlin, called Rudow; it is about what once was, and now is no more.
