punch in the face vs. punch in the stomach

What is an intellectual though? Is an intellectual someone who attempts to construct something that's perceived as 'intellectual,' or someone who inadvertantly produces important insights? I think of Krause more as the former, Hagen more as the latter. I prefer Hagen, though I have a lot of respect for Krause, perhaps more than for Hagen.

i remember hearing nina hagen's "new york new york" on college radio in 1985 or so, and thinking it was really weird. i never heard it again till i went to france 10 years later and some french guy at the hostel where i was staying in nantes played it on a cassette.

ms. hagen also had a really cheesy video on beavis and butthead once -- something about carlos castañeda -- and of which b&b made much mirthful fun (Butthead: "is this a joke?" Beavis: "i think it's from the local-access cable channel or something!")

Does anyone know about the source of this performance? Far superior to the album version, but I can't find anything about when/where it was recorded or it exists in a form other than a shitty YouTube video

Nice. Tho' Connecticut isn't a convincing stand-in for Berlin.

Where is Dagmar Krause these days, people? She seems to have had zero internet visibility for the better part of a decade. A fearless and wildly intelligent singer with absolutely no peer.

Merkel’s punk pick for leaving ceremony raises eyebrows

Angela Merkel has left Germans wondering how well they really know the chancellor who has governed them for 16 years, after picking a song by the punk rocker Nina Hagen as the soundtrack for her military leaving ceremony.

her mother eva-maria's recordings of brecht-weill are fine - maybe those would be something to compare against "supply and demand"! wikipedia says eva-maria was considered the "brigitte bardot of the gdr"! (it also notes that she passed away last month - rip, eva-maria.) in addition, nina hagen's stepfather was wolf biermann, whose "Chausseestrasse 131" is an essential work of magnitizdat liedermacher. both worth checking out!

Dagmar's Tank Battles is my alltime favorite album that is currently out of print.

Plenty more on that here, I used to share a flat with Nina Hagen in Camden and she used to make pizza out of dead cats....
