Where to put the hate?
It's not all jazz, funk and Flying Nun in the Nilpferd swamp..
Jochen Distelmeyer was the singer, guitarist and head of Hamburg indie band Blumfeld, which combined the Hamburger school with a more British sound, and was one of the most important German indie bands of the last decade. They split up in 2007, and Distelmeyer's solo debut album Heavy, released on September 25th, is an event (within Germany, at least) comparable with the release of Morrissey's Viva Hate.
The first released track from the album, "Wohin mit dem Haß", shows why.
Quite like the video, too.
