FRESH: ‘Will You Love Me Again?’ – BLARG

This is BLARG and their latest single “Will You Love Me Again?”.

by Christopher Smith

BLARG are from Cologne, Germany. BLARG are Tom Kirschner, Theodor Steiner and ‘Frankie’. BLARG are here! This is BLARG and their latest release “Will You Love Me Again?”!

For ten years, Theo and Tom had a burning fire called passion for making out-of-the-ordinary music. With all the ups and downs of life they stayed together with the goal to make music for the outsiders of the outsiders.

Listening to psychedelic rock for six hours straight in a windowless room while putting flyers into envelopes grew the desire to create and share their vision! From the very start they created music they could not share with anyone nearby – from long drawn clipping noise solos to a single scratch table bass guitars recording in a storage hall.

After moving to Cologne, they found a drummer and recorded their first bunch of songs and burned them on CD’s to share them. After one year they lost their drummer and got a new one. But not long after the second and then the third drummer left for personal reasons. Looking for a solution they bought a bare-bones drum machine prepared for live gigs. Enter ‘Frankie’!

While performing, Theo tap-danced on the pedalboard to switch between verse, chorus, muting the constantly running drum machine and a voice looper and effects to create a wall of sounds. Tom created the most beautiful soundscapes with chiming sounds out of heaven to fuzz solos to drive out the devil that seems to posses him while playing with movements straight out of ‘The Exorcist’.

BLARG debuted with “Killing” and followed this with “Darkness” and “Radiohead”. “Will You Love Me Again?” is their first track consisting of more than a one word title and the boys have lots more planned for the coming months, so stay tuned as we follow their progress every step of the way!

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
