Now Burg-Herzberg managing director Gunther Lorz has his own musical baby. It's been a long time since Johann Unbenimm's "Ein Rührstück" from 1996, but is he mighty proud or is he washing his hands in innocence, ironically depicted as an apostle with a halo in the CD interior photo? Curious and original is the mixture, which spits out this burning duck. In "Barbie Boy" singer Ulrike Helmholz lays extremely lascivious charm over this indie chanson, garnished with lots of piano and percussion in tango-like rhythms. After that, some titles also feature electric, twisted indie rock somewhere between Nina Hagen, PJ Harvey and -Hildegard Knef. Linguistically it varies between English and German. Classic piano chanson is on Guilty's menu. In "Rezept für einen Hirtenauslauf" Jonas Dorn dumplings the electric guitar extensively, but Gunther Lorz is allowed to offer long piano cascades in the mighty epic "Overture". Mr. Lorz recites in "I'm good for you". A rogue who thinks of evil in the squeezebox touches "I miss my dick" and "I want you". Wonderful crazy thing.
