Verloren





The profit of doom is walking the beach – With a psychotic breakdown cardboard sign
— Iggy Pop

Quote from: My Life Was Saved By Rock And Roll
by Thomas Altfather Good

 
Backstory: the lyric was pulled from L.O.S.T., a stand out track on the classic Beat ‘Em Up album (2001). Verloren is German for Lost. The Ampelmännchen (little traffic men – symbols used in East German walk signs) were acquired in East Berlin in 2001 while Ingo Assenmacher and I were on our way to see Alice Cooper (and his daughter) perform at Universal Halle. It was the Brutal Planet tour and AC was in good form.
