'no man can deny'

Finished with a hard night's shooting in the Knitting Factory's main room, I headed down, down, to the catacombic reaches of the 'Old Office' . I had discovered that Lucas, Dufus's mad scientist, was bartending down there. As imagined he was engaging the remaining customers, a congregation of affable gregarious drunks, with vociferous repartee. He got into a knockdown fight with a hard-punching puppet. A band struck up on the stage, kind of dubby, some hard rhythm, and lyrical keys... and then a silky siren singer. Lucas and I snuck into an obscure catacomb for a smoke. We'd all had enough bands for the day but, slowly but surely, we came to realize that this band was really, really rather good. Fortified by multiple beers and brandies, I was inspired to get the camera out and stagger down the front just in time to get the last song..

The song - 'Die Gedanken Sind Frei'- turns out to be a German protest poem of some vintage. The title roughly translates as 'Our Thoughts Are Free'.

And yes i have knocked up a VCD of the one track, to give to the band. No doubt I'll put in on a comp some day, but if you're keen you can get a copy of the single from the pinstand at the usual rate of $4 inc. mail ($5 foreign) - if interested email orders@pinstand.com with the subject=VCD327, and I'll let you know the process. or just paypal straight in at that address. I know it might seem a lot for one track, but it's a good one.
