Papst & Abstinenzler

is a duo with dark humor and laconic stories about what life is really all about - wrapped up folky bits and bluesy hits. The twosome from Schaffhausen, Switzerland are in one critics mind the local reincarnation of the Man in Black.

Which song do you listen to when...
you feel like 1982?
ABC - The Look Of Love

«The Look Of Love» vom ABC-Debüt «The Lexicon Of Love»  hörte ich damals dünn und durchsichtig. Mein damaliger Wiener Wohnungsgenosse Leo Bei aka Charly Horak (Tontechniker, später dann Bassist bei Ostbahnkurti) fand die Produktion von Trevor Horn interessant, den Song aber eher schrecklich. Ich mochte und mag die überkandidelte Euphorie. Trevor Horn ist mir ziemlich egal.

you try to stay up for more than 24 hours?
Hildegard Knef - Ich bin zu müde, um schlafen zu gehen

Wir versuchens jeweils mit Autosuggestion: «Ich bin zu müde, um schlafen zu gehen» von Hildegard Knef funktioniert manchmal, fast noch besser ist die Instrumentalversion des Songs von Erobique. 

you come home from the club?
Hal Frazier - After Closing Time

Das Northern-Soul-Anthem «After Closing Time», nicht zuletzt wegen der Zeilen «But where do you go after closing time? And what's gonna keep you from losing your mind?» Bringt die Tristesse «danach» auf den Punkt, oder?

you relax on a beach?
Slayer - Angel Of Death

Sorry: Karibik?! «Angel Of Death» ist das Einzige, was uns spontan dazu einfällt. Mr. Abstinenzler hat Slayer vor Kurzem gesehen, und seine Augen leuchten seither so gefährlich.  

you cook?
American Music Club - Johnny Mathis' Feet

Beim Kochen läuft aus eher unerfindlichen Gründen sehr oft das Album «Mercury». «Johnny Mathis' Feet», wenn ich eine Nummer herausheben soll. Meinem Sugo bekommt Mark Eitzels trübe Weltsicht erstaunlich gut. 

you run from the cops?
Motörhead - Shoot You In The Back

Wer (wie wir) leicht paranoide Tendenzen in sich trägt, nimmt natürlich «Shoot You In The Back». Lemmy Kilmister ist ja ein unglaublich unterschätzter Texter: «They say music is the food of love, let's see if you're hungry enough.» Da kriecht Shakespeare doch glatt in die Ecke, kuschelt sich an Zoe Jenny und weint.

you prepare for an important date?
LCD Soundsystem - Someone Great

Klarer Fall. Erklärt sich von selbst, oder?

you are in a depressive mood?
Freddy Fischer & His Cosmic Rocktime Band - Disco Dell'Amore

Freddy und seine weltumarmende Art macht dich wieder gut und froh! Disco in Deutsch und in gut – in diesem Stück ausnahmsweise auf Italienisch. Einer der Gigs des Jahres 2010, ausserdem durfte ich als DJ Cazzo di Ferro danach mal wieder Discomucke spielen. 

you destroy a hotel room?
Link Wray - Rumble

Sowas von unterschwellig böse, gefährlich, gemein. Hardrock und Heavy Metal, bevor es das gab. Wir lieben es!!

you want to disturb your neighbours?
Lo Fat Orchestra - Style

«Style», der Opener von «Questions For Honey», dem zweiten Album des Lo Fat Orchestra, der mit Abstand besten Band der Schweiz! Immer und immer wieder. Am besten das ganze Album! Am besten richtig LAUT!

you drive a car late at night?
Bohren und der Club of Gore - Crimson Ways
Outkast - Return Of The G

Dahingleiten im Dunkeln vor einer Lichterkulisse und die Zeitlupenriffs der deutschen Band passen prima zueinander. Oder doch besser «Return Of The G», damit der Driver Abstinenzler nicht einnickt, sondern kopfnickend heimcruist.

you drive into the country?
Udo Lindenberg - Cowboy Rocker
you had enough of this world?
Johnny Cash - Redemption Day

Mhm, das passiert eigentlich nie. Falls sich das einmal ändern sollte, wäre «Redemption Day» so etwas wie ein versuchsweises Klopfen an die Tür, wo «Exit» draufsteht.

you feel lonely?
Lee Hazlewood - My Autumn's Done Come

Da gibts nur diesen. Übrigens einer unserer Helden. Dies ist vielleicht sein grösster Song. Moodmässig unglaublich runtergedimmt und doch steckt knirschender dunkler Humor drin. Ein Song wie ein bester Freund, der spätnachts auftaucht und an der Bar mit dir trinkt, bis der Laden dichtmacht.

you are love sick?
Tom Waits - Hold On

Mhm, das wäre ein Stück, auf das wir uns beide einigen könnten. Herzbrecher. Und zwar richtig.

you make breakfast?
Lee Perry - Roast Fish And Cornbread

Auch wenn Papst & Abstinenzler ausladende Käse- und Fleischplatten mit frischem Butterzopf bevorzugen, die Nummer ist soo genial-beknackt – und Mr. «Scratch» Perry ein Genie. 

you paint your apartment?
Chico Buarque - Construcao

Gern Sachen, die beschwingen und bei denen es viel zu hören gibt. Ich schlage vor: «Construcao» des brasilianischen Songwriters Chico Buarque. Eigentlich mein Lieblingssong ever (damit das doch noch platziert ist). Ein Monster, das sich aufbaut und dreht bis zum Gehtnichtmehr und – was für kühne Arrangements – am Schluss noch zu einem völlig anderen Song wird. 

you meet your parents?
Nilsen Brothers - Tom Dooley

«Tom Dooley» in der deutschen Version der Nilsen Brothers. Hat meine Mutter früher dauernd gehört und dazu gesungen, oh: und geweint. Eine Art Mörderballade als Schlager. Gar nicht so weit von dem, was wir versuchen.

you have to answer an elusive questionnaire?
Wall Of Voodoo - Factory

Wie diesen hier? In «Factory» erzählt Stan Ridgway die Geschichte eines, ähm, mittelschwer derangierten Fliessbandarbeiters. Passt gar nicht schlecht. Zu finden auf dem epochalen «Call Of The West»-Album.

you rob a bank?
Rosebud - Bank Robbery

Da gibts nur eins: «Bank Robbery» von der Zürcher Band Rosebud mit der ganz und gar einzigartigen Stimme von Nadja Zela. 

you sell crack cocaine to teenagers?
Dieter Wiesmann - De Tuusigfüessler Balthasar

Mhm, vermutlich «De Tuusigfüessler Balthasar» von Dieter Wiesmann. Oder nein: doch eher «Cräckpfiife» von Papst & Abstinenzler.

you have to spend a night in a spooky hotel?
Dr. John - I Walk On Guilded Splinters

Um der Sache den gewissen Voodoo-Extrakick zu geben: «Walk On Guilded Splinters». Ich hatte das Glück, ihn vor zwei Jahren im «Rock'n'Bowl», einem kleinen Club in New Orleans, zu sehen. Er spielte dort einen Benefizgig für die Witwe von Eddie Bo. Guter Mann. Und unfassbar grossartig, wie er diese Atmosphäre hinkriegt. Ausserdem würde ich damit garantiert kein Auge zu tun, und das wär auch richtig so.
