maybe it’s time for a little kurt weill? i’m very fond of weill, and meret becker did a whole show of kurt weill back in 2001, thoughtfully shared on dime by ‘uuughh’. my not understanding german is too bad, i expect the talk (and there’s quite a bit) would be interesting. i’ve included .pdf’s of a review of the show (not that very night) by the “berliner zeitung”, both in german and in a wacky-as-usual google-translate version. and there’s a nice little write-up about meret becker on femmetotale.de also (i stole the image for the cd cover from there).
uuughh does note that “it’s worth listening, but it is more for real fans and completists. a unique show, meret talks a lot about the songs.”

setlist (all tracks are from kurt weill, help appreciated):
04 und wie man sich bettet
05 seeräuber jenny
08 band introduction
10 denn für dieses leben ist der mensch nicht …
15 salomon song
source: md with mono mic
unknown lineage. i got this as wav-file.
wav > audition (tracking) > flac frontend lvl 8 > flac
the sound is b-/c, too much bass, sometimes are noises on the mic. it’s worth listening, but it is more for real fans and completists.
a unique show, meret talks a lot about the songs.
