A blog about me, my doings and everything I think deserves attention.


stadtaffe Urbanprimat

Peter Fox’ first solo album Stadtaffe is a nice mixture of interesting rythms and clever rhymes. I’ve heard Peter Fox voice many times before, listening to Seeed and I loved his new single Alles Neu right away. I saw it by accident on MTV (not happening often, but this time it was worth the cell phone ads). The egocentric album about pre-, post-, or only party, beginnings, life plans and a few things in between make a great mixture.

My favourite songs are Alles Neu, Lok auf 2 Beinen and Schwarz zu Blau. The topics new beginning or new chapter in your life in Alles Neu and the restlessness in Lok auf 2 Beinen are well known. Also being alone in an urban environment even though everywhere are people is familiar to me too. Schwarz zu Blau is brutally honest about Berlin and the song I’ve definitly listened to the most. I love my nativ place, the Ruhrgebiet and feel at home in most ugly and big cities.

The musical part is an unusual hybrid between orchestra, drums and electronical beats and the great voice of Pierre Baigorry aka Peter Fox.

So long:

Guten Morgen Berlin,
Du kannst so hässlich sein, so dreckig und grau,
du kannst so schön schrecklich sein,
deine Nächte fressen mich auf,
es wird für mich wohl das Beste sein,
ich geh nach Haus und schlaf mich aus
und während ich durch die Straßen lauf,
wird langsam schwarz zu blau.

Peter Fox – Schwarz zu Blau
