Sentimentale Jugend ‎– "S.J. / Borsig-Werke" (Das Cassetten Combinat ‎– 810111) 1982


 Alexander Von Borsig and Christiane F were Sentimentale Jugend. A minimal electronic duo in the classic Deutsche style. Beautiful Lo-fi electronics, again, recorded in that same large shoe box somewhere in West Berlin. What a seething creative cauldron was that isolated island of western capitalism? One of the better mistakes of world dumb-ass politics.....then they let the east in, which ended it.It always happens to all inspired art movements.Like a dog ripping up its favourite toy, the 90%ers come with envious eyes and want what you've got, then fuck it up for everyone!

Tracklist:

A1 Tote Kammer
A2 Maschinen
A3 10.5.
A4 Hiroshima
B1 Pour Mon Bibi
B2 Angst
B3 Ghetto

This one requires a bit more background. A. von Borsig is, of course, Alex Hacke, here with his then-famous gf Christiane Felscherinow whose "Wir die Kinder vom Bahnhof Zoo" was a totemic piece of 1980s drug scene, in Berlin and elsewhere. CF has never come clean but Alex is living a healthy life, as shown in the recent documentary on Turkish music. Thanks for posting.

Hi Anon, I was ashamedly unaware that this was Alex Hacke! Should have done a bit more research I suppose? Wasn't there a dodgy druggy film called Christiane F? Sullied by one David Bowie?
Thanks for the info.

Too true! But, i may have been too generous labelling them 90%ers....it is more like 99.999%ers. This is why the earth is doomed.
