2019 marked 30 years since the fall of the Wall. And the occasion for Carsten “Erobique” Meyer, known and loved for his one-man live-disco ecstasies and film music (including for “Crime Scene Cleaner”), debris-dandy Paul Pötsch and director Lea Connert to explore a blind spot in German cultural history: the musical legacy of the GDR from the ‘60s and ‘70s. Songs were created at the time with a commitment to jazz, Afrobeat, Schlager pop, soul, tropicália, and funk, with next to nothing to do with the clichéd image of grey East Germany. These compositions and texts from socialism were so good at escaping censorship that they got through just as poetry, and they grooved so outrageously hard that they could easily tear apart every disco between Wismar and Konstanz. “Wir treiben die Liebe auf die Weide” features a showband around Meyer and Pötsch, including Polly Lapkovskaja, Marcel Römer, Pola Lia Schulten and other guests, re-interpreting songs by important musicians such as Uschi Brüning, Veronika Fischer, Nina Hagen and Manfred Krug. Add some documentary material and texts and you get an intense concert-happening that celebrates the special significance of music, its hidden qualities of resistance, and its soft subversiveness.
