Description

I'm a scriptwriter and filmmaker living in Berlin. At 1988 , I came from Switzerland to Berlin. One of my admirations is Blues and Country Music. When I saw the movie Winter's Bone, some years ago, I was very impressed from the singer Merethid Sisco, who sung a wonderfull version of "High On The Mountain" in one of the scenes. It's an old traditional song, questioning in one of the lines "Where have the years of my life been gone?" at a certain age, a very good question. I decidet to translate this song into Swiss German, because this is the language, my songs come over the best. It's the first song on this album. After, I started to translate other favorit songs in to Swiss German: "Million Miles"(Millione) by Dylan or "Let the Mystery Be" (Geheimnis) by Iris De Ment. Other songs are originals by myself. "Im Name vom Blues" or "Weisch". "Blocher's Stöffel" is an adaption from the traditional "Diamond Joe". "In den Tag hinein" is an original, the only one in German. I went in a studio here in Berlin. We recorded the songs in two days.
Me: guitar and vocals
The band was great:
Rob Dietze, leadguitar
Fabian Brokof, guitar
Arne Berger, piano
Bastian Kaletta, bass
Puya Shoary, drums
We call us MO & kAPELLE. Kapelle is the name for a band in the traditional Swiss music.
The cover is from my friend Jonathan Bragdon, a US painter, I like a lot, who lives in Amsterdam.
