Bootleg – “The Ring Of Wild Roses”

November 11, 2014 Leave a comment

I thought that since we won’t get any new album in the near future that I’d share a bootleg once in a while.

Just a little note, most of my bootlegs comes from Dime. Please respect the work of the tapers. Meaning to keep the files as you have downloaded them (no reencoding) with the text file containing all the info. And most of all: DO NOT RESELL THEM.

Anyway after seeing Kylie Minogue in concert last week, I got nostalgic of her duet with Nick and looked up some of their performances together so today I am sharing this 1996 bootlegs. Download here.

Interview translation: ” I’m still a punk but I have a tailor now”

Hello again,

luckily I slept a few hours in the meantime so I hope the heap of mistakes is not trying to channel his inner Himalayas.

I thought I need some visual in here. I made a screenshot of the Making Of that is included on the DVD of 20.000 Days On Earth. The only connection to my translation posting is that it shows a very strange German thing (and Brigitte Bardot of course) and that there is a possibility that he collected it during one of those Berlin winters he talks about in the interview. See for yourself…

It seems to be a page from what we call „Groschenroman“ aka penny dreadful or dime novel. It also says „The big bestseller“ and because of a). the German phrase that is used there is very oldschool, b.) this thing surely was no bestseller and c). the fact that Nick has it in an old notebook of his, it cracked me up to no end. Surely a wise collection of thoughts that book.

Tragically we are not able to read it, so we need to stick to Nick’s wisdom. There it is, translated from English to German and back so that I am sure parts of it are now also kind of grinded through the mills of imagination or maybe just different dictionaries…

Have fun!
