unergründliche Innenräume

XiuXiu XiuXiu XiuXiu are Krakatoa East of Java, hotter than hot newer than new, ready to fight for right against wrong. The latest and best incarnation features lovesexy talent Jamie Stewart, ravishing genius Angela Seo and masterly Dave Kendrick (late of Glen Meadmore`s Kuntry Band, Gleaming Spires, Devo, Sparks and Visiting Kids which featured Nancye Ferguson and Scarlette Rouge the daughter of Michéle Lamy).

silent green crematorium in Berlin Wedding is the best venue to see XiuXiu and I felt so lucky to witness their alchemy supporting new release Ignore Grief. The entire throng in the kuppelhalle was transported to a majestic musical delirium.

I first met the beautiful Mr. Stewart when he was a retiring, shy weenager from the San Fernando Valley fronting two bands Ten in the Swear Jar and Ibopa which played at my Sunday afternoon beer bust and performance space Club Sucker at the Garage in Silverlake from 1994-1999.

In 2015 Jamie wrote the score to my libretto for a re-imagining of Mozart´s the Magic Flute as a performative installation under the direction of CHEAP kollektiv`s Susanne Sachsse. Our version called The Magic Flute Part One: An Opera in Six Steps which the New York Times senior critic Holland Cotter called the best art event of 2015.

I read a poem of Jamie´s that is featured in the song "Faith Torn Apart" that was on XiuXiu´s album Forget from 2016.

At the XiuXiu performance at silent green tons of celebrity fans came out of the feral woodworkings including gorgeous and talented choreographer/dancers Laurie Young & Assaf Hochman aka: Blood of Abraham, artiste extroidinaire Wolfgang Mayer of Discoteca Flaming Star, Sydney Christensen of Kill Rock Stars, the handsome Canadian singer Abel Tesfaye aka: The Weeknd, actresses Franka Potente, Jella Haase & Sophie Rois, well hung, young German stars David Kross, Max Riemelt, Kostja Ulllmann, Dimitrij Schaad, Jannik Schümann, Ken Duken, Tom Wlaschiha, and Alexander Fehling.

The line to buy merch was doublefisted as everyone wanted to get their greedy pinkies on the primo XiuXiu T-shirts (I purchased the Xiuicidal Tendencies Tee), along with patches, sports bras, jock straps, cock rings, chastity belts, cages, LPs and cassettes. Yes you heard correctly cassettes!!!!!
