It's A Hit!
Remember the Cohen movie "O, Brother Were Art Thou", when Clooney and the gang sang them beautiful tunes? Imagine that kind of folk sound with the biggest hits of the Eighties - Depeche Mode, Eurythmics, Madonna, but also Wire, The Clash and Billy Idol: You've got the Greatest Hits, New York's new secret. Their first show ever at Bar on A was a rousing success, we enjoyed it immensely and promise to learn a lot of new tracks for the next show. The evening was opened by Anton Sword who set a somber tone with the ballads first, then turned into optimistic pop. Reduced Room - Burnt Finger is in Italy - now seem to be able to hold the volume under control and presented a nice bunch of new songs, amongst them Architect, which you can hear below, thanx to Anita, whom you hear talking to Pierre in the beginning. Ich liebe den Raum, Mann!
