Einsturzende Neubauten interview and performance

Interview and performance from German industrial pioneers Einsturzende Neubauten (featuring long-time Bad Seed, Blixa Bargeld). It appears this was filmed during their trip to Japan in 1985 when they were making the intense performance film 1/2 Mensch. I love the cute, kids TV-style presenter.


‘Islet’ are like no other. The 2 mini albums ‘Celebrate This Place’ and ‘Wimmy’ are what the 21st Century Dr. Jekyll would have playing on his stereo as he began to drink his poison. But the only place to really experience what these four have to offer is live. They have just finished a short tour, of which we were very fortunate to be a part. They are inspiring, insightful and inciting.
