K&F 007 - Rumen Welco - I never learned to raise my fist PDF Print E-mail
Written by Mario   
ImageBereits Ende der 90er Jahre von glühenden Modest Mouse-Bewunderern in Dresden gegründet, präsentieren die ostdeutschen Sonderlinge von Rumen Welco ein Debüt-Album, das in seiner baufällig-eleganten musikalischen Ästhetik gänzlich aus der Zeit gefallen scheint: schratiger Indiefolk zwischen Echt, Songs:Ohia, Smog oder den Pixies, manchmal mit betörendem Frauen/Männer-Wechselgesang, manchmal fast schon rüpelig-polternd. Dazu Songs über wurstige Rotbärte, die ein Päckchen vertrockneten Tabak erben oder arme Gestalten, die sich Hals über Kopf in die Pornodarstellerin Bobby aus Denver, Colorado verlieben. Eine herrlich kautzige Band, gefangen im Strudel von lüsternder Begierde, frommen Gebet, Engel, Tod und Teufel.

Rumen Welco started off a as a three piece band in the late Nineties with an almost religious admiration for Modest Mouse’s Isaac Brock. The audience didn’t know what to make of these three underage weirdoes who had named their band after a Hungarian exchange student in their high school but local journalists and bookers loved them dearly. For years, their career consisted of little more than support shows at Dresden’s best music venues for artists such as Howe Gelb, Adam Green or Interpol. Songs such as “(Ricky) You’re My Beater” are so well-rounded and flawless, one is almost tempted to oversee them on their label debut which is finally being released in 2009. Their story telling is abstruse and interesting. In the song “Girl In The Painting” the protagonist falls in love with a portrait of RAF-terrorist Gudrun Ensslin. Also, they have the ability to write songs that immediately sound like classics on first listen. Their music sways somewhere in between Songs: Ohia, Smog and Pixies or, more often, appears to have fully fallen out of time.
