Dagmar Krause Live Concert in Manchester
The songs of Brecht, Weill and Eisler
Dagmar Krause entertains with her extraordinary vocal talents
A remarkable and distinctive vocalist, Dagmar Krause is recognised as a major interpreter of the German song tradition. With the release of her 80s albums Supply & Demand and Tank Battles she earned the acclaim of critics around the world. She is considered to be a leading exponent of the songs by Bertholt Brecht, Kurt Weill and Hanns Eisler.
A magnetic performer, possessing a ferocious intensity and passion, Krause is returning to this repertoire for the first time in several years. This is a one-off performance, by special invitation from the Royal Exchange Theatre Co to coincide with their production of C P Taylor's GOOD.

...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?
Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
