I watched this documentary film until 3 in the morning and I couldn’t sleep at all after that. Now it’s morning and I feel a bit of nausea combined with shock, repulsion and intrigue. I can’t find my words to describe what the documentary is about. I think it’s best that each of you watch it and decide where you stand afterwards.
Stress is the duo of Alan Rider and Phil Clarke from West Midlands, England formed in 1981. Stress combined electronic rhythms and keyboards with bass guitar, vocals, percussion, and cut-up samples. They created catchy electronic pop songs that fused accessible & experimental elements with a pointed lyrical edge in the vein of Cabaret Voltaire, Depeche Mode and Joy Division.
There was a music festival in Budapest somewhere at the end of April last year and a great party at the beginning of May in Berlin. There were days and days of thinking which one to chose or how to get to both of them and after struggling to find a solution, after so many nights with no sleep, we finally did it: the Euro Tour in 10 days -> Budapest -> Bratislava -> Prague-> Dresden -> Berlin. The first trip for just the two of us.
I’m at the office, outside it’s been raining since this morning (now it’s after-noon already), it’s April and I am dreaming of warm sunny days, somewhere relaxing and quiet. Somewhere that will remind me of the beautiful Tamarit beach where we went last summer and almost started crying when we had to go back home.
