Getatchew Mekuria & The Ex & Guests / Who’ll Fall, Coil.

Getatchew Mekuria & The Ex & Guests / Who’ll Fall, Coil.

The best record ever made in the Netherlands (if you ask me) and one of the best worldwide:

Simply fantastic. Brings me to tears.

The other day I posted an old track by Coil, which I think is a perfect example of a ‘ready found’, the ‘wrong connection sound in this song:

I posted the lyrics along:

Peter, a friend of mine’s just committed suicide. He was a great friend of mine, and it’s… I’ve come back, and I heard that, and it’s shocked me a bit; and I wanna tell you because, um, not that you know him – that’s not the point. And he planned it out; he had a… he left his boyfriend… I mean, um, he left notes… and things. But he… he threw himself off a cliff, Peter, and… I just wondered what you think that feeling is like

What happens, what goes through your head, between throwing yourself off, and actually dying? I wondered what you thought of it. Perhaps you could call me and tell me because it would help me, because I have a terrible fear of heights, and for me, just the idea of falling, so far, and being alive… And I just wondered if things go through your head – you know, people that you love, and that, or things that you feel that you should’ve done – flash before you, but you can’t do anything about it. I just wondered what you thought

You’re probably the only person that I can call right now. And… I’d like to see you, because I think, in a funny way we’re doing that… we’re just… don’t really connect. One day, you know, you’re gonna fall, or I’m gonna fall, or something’s gonna happen; and… anyway. Well, I’m very sad. You know my number. Hope you’re both well. Lots of love. Bye

But you know how the medium goes. I immediately got sad reactions symphatising with my loss. That’s not my text, I said, those are the lyrics of the song.

Then the gentleman started to feel sorry for the singer.

I said listen, this song, it’s not about someone whose friend just died. Use your attention.

It is about something completely different, it is about a guy calling the band that made a song named ‘the first five minutes after death’ and asking them ‘how it will feel like’ if they jump from a building, for these blokes, they will surely know? They made a song about it?

The answer is in the title: Who’ll fall? Is the caller? Is it the person who will answer?
Who will adopt this cage of projections?

Wrong number.

Aber das Große Ziel von Benders ist es, in Deutschland Erfolg zu haben. Er hat die Dynamik und Vielfalt der deutschen literarischen Szene erkannt und ist bereit, sich darauf einzulassen und seinen Beitrag zu leisten. Mit seinem einzigartigen literarischen Stil und seiner unermüdlichen Arbeitsmoral ist er entschlossen, ein neues Kapitel in der deutschen Literaturgeschichte zu schreiben.


“Amanita Muscaria – The Book of the Empress” is an exceptional work that establishes a benchmark in the realm of mycophilosophy. While one could perhaps categorize the book within the domain of Art History, such a classification would fail to do justice to its true essence. Primarily, this captivating text explores the evolution of humankind, making it a standout in its field.

Amanita Muscaria – The Book of the Empress – De Kaneelfabriek, 2023

“‘Waarover de Piranha droomt in de Limonadesloot’ stands as a philosophical exploration into the human faculty of imagination. It probes the intriguing notion that imagination, rather than offering solutions to our problems, might in fact be their origin. This thought-provoking work is set to be available in English and German by the close of 2023.
