about

After two powerful rock records, I got the idea for an acoustic album. Because I wanted to focus on the lyrics, on the stories of the songs. I wanted to keep it simple, clear and not so loud with just guitars, piano, drums and a bass but I couldn‘t stop myself and then put a lot of more stuff on. Now we have songs with a violin, a flute, a glockenspiel, an accordion and a lot of other small acoustic instruments. However, an electric guitar and drum-machines are used as well. This is why the album is called „The Acoustic Walk—pimped and tuned“. But still it has got these acoustic features.

The included “Acoustic Session Tapes“ are the recordings of Michael and me on a cold and windy Saturday. Just two guitars and our voices. As simple as that. These are songs from the previous records “Bremen-Adelaide” and “Rumble in The Jungle”.

I‘d like to thank the band in the name of Jens Anderstein, Tobias Tietjen and Mighty Michael for their inspiration and ideas. Especially I would like to thank Michael who actually co-produced this album.

And many thanks to everybody who supports my music. And of course to my wife who tries to cope with the loudness in our house.

Best regards M

It was early in the morning
Probably around 5 o’clock
The colonel shouted through the camp
We had to get up

There was no way out, we had to get dressed
It was still a dark night
Rain was falling down constantly
But we had to get up and fight

Oh, have you seen
What it takes to be
All these pictures in my mind
Oh, please take me away
Today
Away

We jumped on that dingo car
Left the camp without light
I was thinking about home
My, son, my daughter, my wife

We passed by a little village
Kids were walking to school
The were singing, laughing, playing around
And then a flash, a thunder sounded loud

Oh, have you seen
What it takes to be
All these pictures in my mind
Oh, please take me away
Today
Away

I hurt my back and my leg
They put me on a plane
You came down to the hospital
I could see your tears and your pain

Our kids were with you
But you left them outside
I said sorry but I couldn’t help
Ever since there’s the pain

Oh, have you seen
What it takes to be
All these pictures in my mind
Oh, please take me away
Today
Away
