After a short conversation with a friend I decided that a song of The Cure is the song of the week. The Cure was the first band I’ve seen live and although I don’t listen them very often, I still love the songs. It was a difficult decision, which song I could chose, because they have so many so good songs. After listening to a lot of songs I’ve chosen this:
The Cure – Open
I think this song isn’t so famous, but it expresses what I often feel or think.
After the good news last week – Combichrist will be on tour in June – is of course the song of the week a song by Combichrist.
Combichrist – Get Your Body Beat
This video is from the Combichrist concert last year at the MS Stubnitz. A small venue, but a very intensive and hot concert! And by the way, it’s one of my favourite songs of them. So I’m really happy to see the guys soon again and I’m looking forward to the party.

I think there will come more dates soon, but that’s the actual schedule.
Why this band and this song? To be honest, I don’t know. It was just the first thought I had. Aesthetic Perfection will be playing in May some old school shows and the made for the 3 shows in Hamburg, Gothenburg and Stockholm a poll for the setlist. Unfortunately this song is always at the bottom of the poll, although I think, it’s a very good song. But maybe they will it play anyway? Who knows. So here’s the song of the week 09/2016
Aesthetic Perfection – Filthy Design
This video was recorded in Hanover at the club Engel07. It was a small, but very nice club. Unfortunately they have now a different music programme, so that bands like AP will not play there again.
But I’m looking forward to the old school shows, it will be interesting to see them just with a microphone and a keyboard again like in the beginning. And I’m interested to see, how it will work with the newer songs.

July 23, 2016 – Cologne (GER) – Amphi Festival
In a few days I’ll be in Helsinki at the Synapsi festival. There is also the band The Exploding Boy from Sweden. And therefore is the Song of the week
The Exploding Boy – 40 Days
I’ve seen them one time before, that was at the Amphi festival in Cologne. They played there at the Staatenhaus, which is/was very common for the bad acoustic. And in addition to this were at this day massive problems with the sound, not only at The Exploding Boy, also at other bands. So therefore was this not the best day and so I’m looking forward to see them now in Helsinki again.
I like this song, I think it’s the best from the album „Afterglow“. But you should also listen to the other songs, for example London or Desperados.
This week I’ve chosen IAMX, because I’ll see them in 10 days again. This time in Helsinki. It’s my first trip to Finland and I’m very excited. And because I like the song so much, the song of the week is
IAMX – Happiness
It’s not just the dark, depressive atmosphere, it’s also the lyrics which I really love. My favourite song of this album.
