TOTAL AEROB! is a virtual LO-FI-indie-rockband with spoken german lyrics.
Living-room laboratorium. Experiment. We love the 90´s indiestuff,
and we also love the lyric poetry, literature in general. We try to
combine these things, and anytime we do this, we are excited -and
mostly surprised- about the result. We only use a tascam-238-eight-track-taperecorder
for our songs, eight tracks to make it. So, the music is edgy and
sloppy, in a melancholy mood, sometimes out of time with that special
analogous sound! Anyway, it works! The musical arrangements are made
by CHRISTOPHER. He´s the one who makes the first step- the song-
and give the others a call: hey, it´s done!. allright, i´ll
be there in about 30 mins! ANDREAS writes his own lyrics, self-reflections
of a grown-up boy in a deep speech. FLORIAN also writes his own stuff,
similar themes, but mostly he recites. Actually there are lyrics by
pablo neruda, xu demin and sun jingxuan (these guys are modern chinese
lyricists) in "his" songs. This is the interesting part
of the band, this mixture of self-written stuff, the lyrics by the
great authors and how it corresponds to each other. The whole TOTAL
AEROB- thing depends on spontaneity, and we don´t mind so much!!
It´s more like a musical scetchbook or diary. we just having
fun with this shit!! Hopefully you too!! PLEASE JOIN myspace.com/totalaerob!
