Andreas Ammer and F.M. Einheit

Deutsche Krieger

Invisible Records

Here’s one I’ve been looking for for years. It’s yet another strange collaboration between Einstürzende Neubauten’s Einheit and playwrite Andreas Ammer. It tells the story of three influential Germans through grammaphone, radio and television recordings accompanied by Einheit’s blippy, bleepy electronics. The three chapters – “Kaiser Wilhelm Overdrive”, “Adolf Hitler Enterprise” and “Ulrike Meinhof Paradise” all contain audio verite from their titular character’s respective eras; shellac records of Wilhelm II’s mobilization speeches and contemporaneous wax records; the story of Adolf Hitler told entirely through radio broadcasts; the suspenseful action saga of the Baader/Meinhof gang -starring supersexy Ulrike Meinhof – as a television drama, complete with 70’s disco music. Music samples of Kraftwerk, Bernard Hermann and what is either Blixa Bargeld’s patented dentist-drill shriek or just Blixa’s dentist drill abound.
Like other Ammer/Einheit recordings (Radio Inferno, Crashing Aeroplanes) it’s simultaneously horrifying and hilarious.
