When Heri from Soundfactory first listended to this song he really didn’t like it because he thought that it sounded too much like the old Pink Turns Blue. We thought that this was really the reason why we’d recorded the song.

Let Me Die – Acoustic Version

When we were working in the Studio 54 they had this wonderful old Steinway piano and it was stored in tiled room which was used as a reverb room in the former days. We really loved the slightly out-of-tune sound and the hard reverb of the room. Nice recording – even a little bit strange.

The Face – Live on Planet BO

Nobody really knows if this one is called “The faith” or “The face”. Even inside the band there was some confusion about the title. Nevermind – this one was recorded on Planet Bo.

Dave – Original Version

“Dave” was something like a hit in the dark and gothic scene back than. This one is the first recording of “Dave” and it’s a little more down to the point as the released version. At the end of the song there’s this woman – I really can’t remember her name.

1994

We started working on the recordings for our third album shortly before our tour with German band Myrna Loy in 1994. Groppe was still singer of the band and the first version of 1994 was recorded with Groppe in Studio 54. He left the band some weeks before the tour started and we had to find a new singer or cancel the tour. Markus Giltjes, who produced Explain! recommended Udo Woitowizc who came from the same town as Markus. We invited Udo to Studio 54 and during the rehearsal we recorded this version of 1994 which we all really loved and the band had a new singer.

One Love

“One Love” was very much inspired by U2’s”Numb”. Christoph recorded it first with an old Roland drum machine and a small Casio keyboard. This version was recorded for our third (unreleased) album.

Don’t Talk To Me

When we selected songs from old tapes and demos for the “Unexplained!” album in 2003 we recorded this one in two or three hours.

Man In The Dark – Hardface

This is the original mix of “Man in the dark” as recorded and mixed at Tjemara Sewoe, Netherlands. The version which was released on the “Explain!” album was re-recorded later in Studio 54.

One Love (Sweet Little Sixteen Virgin Mix)

A remix version of one end. Back in these days Sasca and Christoph always produced several mixes of each song and because they both really liked a lot of dance and electronic stuff they always experimented with drum computers, sequencers etc.

Trust – Original Version

This too is an original version. Markus Giltjes remixed this one in a very consequent way because he thought that this version is far too smooth and poppy.
