Live Abortion Plus = Digipak = (CD)
This was really right on the button of the German teenage scene during the late Sixties, which was definitely politically charged: fancy using BIRTH CONTROL as a group name, the Pope must have panicked! But this should not distract from the core business of "our" once Berlin based band: The Birth Control boys succeeded in creating their very own brand of Rock - with international sophistication and universal energy. This CD presents those numbers by drummer/singer "Nossi" Noske and guitarist Bruno Frenzel which the world still needs, and which should be updated by new live tours by the members of the last line-up: Sascha Kühn/Hannes Vesper/Martin Ettrich - with drummer Manni von Bohr and ex singing bass player Peter Föller, the other BC lead vocalist apart from Nossi, for instance on the album PLASTIC PEOPLE. Most of the titles on this concert document were recorded in the autumn of 1983, when Stefan Linke played second guitar (assisting in twin lead passages in the vein of the Allman Brothers and Wishbone Ash), Jürgen Goldbeck worked the bass and Jörg Becker handled keyboards. But first and foremost, Nossi called the shots, and Bruno Frenzel was still part of the procedures - only weeks after these concerts, he would succumb to an earlier electrocution, a fate he shared with Stone The Crows' immediately dying Les Harvey. There are haunting monster ballads like "Another Death", driving rock anthems like "Greedy Eyes" and the band's best known title "Gamma Ray" and head banger friendly workouts in "Nuclear Reactor", where Bruno Frenzel may sound a little bit like Ritchie Blackmore, not as a Deep Purple clone but more like the supplier of a friendly piss take. "The King Of An Island" shines as a Fantasy story with surreal lyrics, their piece de resistance "Hoodoo Man" clocks in at more than 15 minutes, and "America" is a very special studio encore produced by Frenzel & Noske in 1982: an open letter to former US president Reagan commissioned by the German section of the Blackfoot Indians - seriously - about imperialism which has lost none of its attack.
