‘Der Kalte Krieg’ (Cold War) recalls Pershing 2, ’bogeyman’ image „Soviet Union“, SDI rocket war in space, double agents & spies, the Red Telephone and the push of a button - representing the deepest fear of all - which would have led to a nuclear war… In a recent interview, the former US minister of defense was asked about how close to the Third War the world actually was back then. His answer: “About 24 hours”! Reviewing those forgotten times, one discovers the most substantial song lyrics of the last century. No ‘Let’s make a Party’, but ‘Ein bisschen Frieden’ (eng. ‘a little peace’) wins the Grand Prix D’Eurovision, while ìboygroupsì consist of three hippies thoughtfully singing about ‘Karl der Käfer’ (eng. ‘Karl the beetle’) in early 80s German TV shows. Most probably, we would all be nuclear ashes by now without them. After fabricating the time machine with their last album/DVD ‘Operation: Zeitsturm’, the imaginary radio station now invites YOU to a test drive into the past… …and the time machine works! Originally announced as an EP, this W:E release comes now as full-length album, and it’s first limited edition contains a full-length DVD as well! The CD features totally 9 cover-versions in typical W:E retro-future sound, two remakes of classic W:E songs (by Hertzinfarkt and The Girl & the Robot), two all new songs (Der Kalte Krieg + Deutsche Liebe), two short radio-plays and a TOP SECRET vintage track (hidden track)… The DVD (strictly with the first edition ONLY) features the best of the best of past Welle: Erdball shows! A sort of much overdue live-compendium of more or less 45 minutes duration (no tracklist yet). A full length Live DVD is in the making and should be released in 2012.
