German TV station ZDF Kulturkanal today confirmed that it is to broadcast in full a recent gig featuring Einstürzende Neubauten, Wire and Caspar BrÃÂ¶tzmann
Berlin Live will be broadcast via German TV station ZDF Kulturkanal on the 3rd December 2011 at 21.00hrs (CET) and will also be available to watch online.
The show was filmed on the 15th September 2011 at Trafo in Berlin ”â Trafo is an extraordinary location for a concert, having once been a former power plant, and provides 7,000 mÃÂ² of raw industrial space on three main levels, which well compliments the artists featured.
Caspar BrÃÂ¶tzmann Massaker ”Ëplayed’ for 30 minutes and performed just two songs/compositions.
Wire performed a selection of tracks culled from their extensive career ranging from ”ËPink Flag’ and through to the recent acclaimed ‘Red Barked Tree’ album. (LTW interviewed Wire in Jan 2011)Einstürzende Neubauten performed their ”Ëhits’ including Let’s Do It A Dada, and Sabrina ”â the stage was suitably filled with metal that Blixa Bargeld used for percussion.
The gig also includes interviews with each of the groups by German presenter Silke Super (surely not his real name?)
Full details of the online broadcast of the show will be added to a Facebook Events page in the coming weeks.
ZDF Kulturkanal can be viewed in the UK via the ASTRA 1H satellite; sadly not on your Sky+ box then”Â¦
