Who: The musical project of 60s survivor Otto von Ruggins.
An experimental, New York based, act being around for light-years,
mixing Space-Goth-Tribal-New-Wave rock and other me(n)tal bangs.
Think legendary eccentrics Devo fooling around with avant-garde
freaks The Residents.
The mysterious Kongress unity returns with a new EP baptized SUMMER DAYS.
Sometimes I wonder if this project is 4 real and is not some sci-fi creation of Space
Odyssey maestro Stanley Kubrick pretending it’s human. Anyway, listen/watch and
have a Close Encounter of the Third Kind experience after the melancholia of the title
– SUMMER DAYS –
A ’Sodom & Gomorrah’ video according to Otto von Ruggins‘ wife and founding
member of Kongress, actually pays homage to the Largest Art Parade in America,
The Coney Island Mermaid Parade. Summer pop fever in colorful motion from the
past, when there was still hope.
I see trees of green
Red roses too
I see them bloom
For me and you
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world
– FUTURE LOOP –
Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!
“Money is the root for all evil
It’s the cause of most wars
Tap into the FutureLoop and prepare
Let Religion provide you with Civilty
It’s time for the New 10 Commandments”
This a techno banger for spaced-out trips
on Judgment Day and to start all over again
afterward from zero with 10 new rules.
– SUGAR DADDY –
A razzle-dazzle synth–missile with a whirlwind
of rappin’ samples. Beastie Boys fight again
for our right to party.
– ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE –
Rapid-eye-movement surreality on film with lyrics
fed into ChatGPT with Mind-Blowing results.
Make America Intelligent Again.
And fuck Trump, of course
