News: Knarf Rellöm interviewed by Frankfurter Rundschau
Knarf Rellöm was questioned from Frankfurter Rundschau about his cynical Track "Arme Kleine Deutsche" (engl.: Poor Little Germans) on our Book-CD "I Can´t Relax In Deutschland" and his personal relation to german nationalism.
"I'm not refering to music, but to the relationship with Germany, especially to what happened after the World Cup 2006.People were going on about how we finally loosened up from being stiff and that something changed. In the lyrics I say:" So if you're asking me, I liked the stiffness better." I'm sypathising if people admit that they feel uncomfortable with their nationalism. But maybe that song is allready obsolete as the way we deal with nationalism keeps on changing and will continue to change, and less and less people will have a problem with it. Probably it's going to be more biological as a phenomenon, but it's a step back to the past, that's a pitty."
