Monarchie & Alltag

Neue Bands und wichtige Filme: „As long as the music’s loud enough, we won’t hear the world falling apart“.

Mehr über diesen Blog

Punk war mit seiner Affinität zum Leben außerhalb der Regeln und Konventionen der Gesellschaft schon immer dafür prädestiniert, mehr Opfer zu fordern. Kaum ein Punkmusiker aus den 70ern, der Drogen und Alkohol fern geblieben wäre (bis Ian MacKaye in Washington straight edge auf den Plan setzte). So hatte Punk bereits in seiner Hochphase die ersten Verluste zu beklagen, aber es war schon überraschend, wie viele der Heroen von 76/77 (oder die einst dafür die Grundlagen legten) im zu Ende gehenden Jahrzehnt sich verabschiedeten. Die meisten starben übrigens eines „natürlichen Todes“, nur wenige gingen den Rockstarweg. Nur Iggy, der ist immer noch unterwegs.

In diesem Sinne:

I miss you more than all the others /
and I salute you brothers.

Jim Carroll Band – People Who Died
.

Teddy sniffing glue, he was 12 years old
Fell from the roof on East Two-nine
Cathy was 11 when she pulled the plug
On 26 reds and a bottle of wine
Bobby got leukemia, 14 years old
He looked like 65 when he died
He was a friend of mine

Those are people who died, died
They were all my friends, and they died

G-berg and Georgie let their gimmicks go rotten
So they died of hepatitis in upper Manhattan
Sly in Vietnam took a bullet in the head
Bobby OD’d on Drano on the night that he was wed
They were two more friends of mine
Two more friends that died

Those are people who died, died
They were all my friends, and they died

Mary took a dry dive from a hotel room
Bobby hung himself from a cell in the tombs
Judy jumped in front of a subway train
Eddie got slit in the jugular vein
And Eddie, I miss you more than all the others
And I salute you brother

Those are people who died, died
They were all my friends, and they died

Herbie pushed Tony from the Boys‘ Club roof
Tony thought that his rage was just some goof
But Herbie sure gave Tony some bitchen proof
„Hey,“ Herbie said, „Tony, can you fly?“
But Tony couldn’t fly, Tony died

Those are people who died, died
They were all my friends, and they died

Brian got busted on a narco rap
He beat the rap by rattin‘ on some bikers
He said, „Hey, I know it’s dangerous, but it sure beats Riker’s“
But the next day he got offed by the very same bikers

Those are people who died, died
They were all my friends, and they died

Teddy sniffing glue, he was 12 years old
