The Slate Pipe Banjo Draggers with
Criadero en Seres - Old Long Sin
'Old Long Sin' was constructed by The Slate
Pipe Banjo Draggers from samples of the traditional
Auld Lang Syne song which have been twisted
and shaped into drones, beats, rhythms and noise
to form the musical side of the new 'Old Long
Sin' track. Criadero en Seres provided the vocal
tracks and whose words are taken from the original
lyrics, changed slightly and then translated
into Spanish. These new lyrics have been sung,
spoken, shouted and whispered by different people
in the Criadero en Seres collective. They have
then been further chopped up and processed and
added into the mix to complete the track. Enjoy...

BROS II - Abchied Bruder (Happy Little
Auld Lang Syne)
I first heared "Nehmt Abschied
Bruder Ungewi" when I was a small boy and
in my imagination it became a German traditional
folksong. Then I realised it's not. Still I
paste the German lyrics in what we like to call
our happy little version of "Auld Lang
Syne". Black Angus, who bestows my song
his canto is known as the german Bon Jovi, though
maintaining a different political attitude and
very different anyway. In Cologne it is winter
at New Years Eve, thus I decided my version
of the song must be a summerly one, banishing
the ghosts of winter. In its gradient the song
is constantly striding away from the burlesque
reference to the original, pulling out into
an electrisized break, featuring Julia Pfeiffers
spoken word apearance, slightly returning to
the hook line and ending in an electronic loop.
Black Angus' singing features the first and
third verse plus the chorus of the lyrics written
by Claus Ludwig Laue on the "Auld Lang
Syne" melody in 1946. Translated to English
they say: Verse 1: Farewell brothers, insecure
is all recurrence, the future is obfuscatory
and burdens our hearts; chorus: The heavens
vault above the land, farewell, so long, all
of us embeded in God’s hand, farewell,
so long; Verse 3: That way in every ouset, the
ends no far away, we come here and we go there,
and with us time goes bye.
