Katzenstreik - Emowürstchen
This is Katzenstreiks masterpiece. Arrangements and poetic deepness in absolute intense. A classic one!
the katzenstreik debut album (2000) mirrors a very personal era during which wound´n´scars needed to be attended to and needed mending in the process fuelling the becoming of the songs: »Emowürstchen« (2002) was stronger, less fragile. more energy as a result of healing brought about a statement of confession: noone out there to rightfully maintain they´re not emo! and so it was perceived: "Arschtritt Ins Licht" transmitted the message: don´t mess with yourself, direct your frusttration to the outside. music is the creative valve that allows us to emit the results of the process of digesting all the shit we´re confronted with in today´s world - and you get people to listen to that! The record combines emotional and sometimes sad themes in a very poetic way. The band has punkrock roots but on that record they fit their energy in a rockmusic dress. people who love bands like Superchunk will also love it as fans of Jawbreaker und Promise Ring. Lyrics are personal with a touch of political background.
