the 39 clocks live in bremen and hamburg 1982. i can hear voices.

the 39 clocks. the spearhead of the northwestgerman psychodeliatric blaireblackblurt punk movement dancing away editions of you in the early eighties of the lastlast century: fed up and fed up with punk (at least the idiot version), disco (the no-meta, straight-straight version: dance if you do not know why you are a heteroe-heroe) and rock (unless you psych-out!): bored teenagers with stars on their elbows: kevin ayers, john cale, john cage, the vollfett underground and the velvet illusions: lightlife was early in 1973: where to now??!!

one way out of moms and deads were the 39 clocks: too loud too lazy too laird too soon: an unbroken non-meta version of all thinks psych andelerium: two or three fat-skinny people: with only some vat 69 in their refrigerator: too old to lose it: the loud lawd laid layers on layers: no more nordstadt-heroes: kassettentäter zonengrenze bollwerck schnaps von ahsen unterm schwanz am tor schützenfest persiko scheessel hamburg arbeiterkampf brokdorf brötzmann wuppertal wastun christine barbara tom cathy maschinenpistolen geheimwaffen zonengrenze einstein spiekeroog bfbs nwdr kbw kraftwerk man ladenöffnungszeiten haifischflossensuppe auslandstarife thiepval decken zahnpasta graaf reich jung tesla my brain hurts und untergrund und über alles there was amon düül and ulrich roski and ingo insterburg and xhol and limpe fuchs and and rolf zacher and krischke and fly and editions of you! connection, context, continuity!
