Neigungsgruppe Sex, Gewalt Und Gute Laune

Wellen Der Angst


What do David Pfister, Fritz Ostermayer, Robert Zikmund, Christian Fuchs and David Hebenstreit have in common? They’re not only members of the band Neigungsgruppe Sex, Gewalt und gute Laune, but they also have the same employer, because all five of them are radio DJs at FM4 in Vienna. This speaks for eloquence and a somewhat twisted sense of humor. Indeed! The Neigungsgruppe was founded in 2003 as a reading quartet in the spirit of Vienna actionism – and Mötley Crüe. Since then there have been numerous tours through Austria and Germany and the debut CD “Good Night Vienna” was released in September 2007. On this CD they interpret the spirit of the Wienerlied in the form of negative associations of all things “Viennese”. On the follow-up, titled “Wellen der Angst”, the 5 no longer reveal the breadth of the Wienerlied through cover versions, but in their own songs: whinyness and self-pity all the way up to a desire for suicide. Anger and desperation bordering on running amok. Recited by a choir, accompanied by guitars, violins, accordions and ukuleles.
