Last Sunday we have given our votes for the parliamentary election. We followed the projections on the composition of the Bundestag at the polling station of the locals socialist party which was located in a local pub nearby our place. It was horrible to have to watch that Mrs. Merkel could take over the autocracy in Germany in future. On other TV-screans we could follow the game of our club – but this didn’t made me any happier because thy tied at least against Frankfurt. This in our head me and my mate Ed decided to leave for a Turkish sportsbar to have some pints and watch the second half of the derby in Istambul. And the fear was continued in the overtime of the game. Galatasaray led by 2:1 as one of their players was reffered off the field. On his way to the cabin he mocked the opposing fans and all escalated. More than one hundred supporters of the local team stormed the field and have thrown the security forces with all kinds of objects such as chairs, cups and so on. The police took more than half an hour to get back control of the angry fans. So I had enough of this day and went home and grabbed a record out of my box.
It was the second record from the Canadian band ‘Godspeed You! Black Emperor’. This was just the sound to calm down a little. A quiet music of experimental/post rock with long passages of instrumental part that’s what fit right to me at this time.
