Note : E Jugend is a susidiary of German experimentalists Ma Chérie For Painting and Baja and thus the concentrate of something particularly heavy (without being heavy metal).
Erratic. Sucking material without growing into a constant state. "Do you think they thought we knackered them?" Maybe then, at the Technical University festival (including beermug throwing) in times of experienced change of climate. Just like walking barefoot on hot concrete. With a wide grin. Tap-dancin´ on carribean instruments. And in one moment it all dissolves into - nothingness.
Stravinsky, Steve Reich, Sonic Youth, Gas, Godard. Quasi Rubber Soul without Exile On Main Street as basic to do music together. One-take. Or rather: live. Inbetween two acoustic guitars and laptop (featuring strawberry cake in springtime) on the one hand and successful battles of material while supporting 5-piece-bands on the other.
"These are people that, for sure, don´t live behind the woods."
"e jugend reminds me of cooking sessions"
"They sound like Pink Floyd after having played for three hours."
Music like a colliding accident. Field recording disposal this time from Dominican Republic via Kuala Lumpur, Venice, Pula, Stuttgart. Since 1998 e jugend have been no.5 and no.9. Happy to be here. As simple as that.
