Andreas Reihse has been well known since 1994 in his role as a musician with Kreidler. Sometimes he releases club music using his alias April or with Detlef Weinrich (Kreidler, Tolouse Lowtrax) as Binford on labels like Italic, Onitor or Smoothrooms. He has also composed soundtracks for films and installations (Rosemarie Trockel, Maximilian Zentz Zlomowitz, Thea Djordjadze, Andreas Gursky, Frances Scholz/Mark von Schlegell, among others). Romantic Comedy is music for dark clubs, for places without much light and oxygen -- it's driving, percussive dance music. A comedy in six acts: from L.A. to Düsseldorf and back. Of course it's a romantic comedy, a bittersweet romance full of memories and a bit of sorrow. The title "Der Lange Weg Nach Düsseldorf" reminds of Mittagspauses Der Lange Weg Nach Derendorf, the district of Düsseldorf where Reihse and Stefan Betke/Pole in the late '80s shared a rehearsal room. "Langeweg" also was the address of Klaus Dinger's studio in Zeeland. The titles of the other pieces refer to dubious characters that show that the trip on the West Coast makes stops in Manchester, Milano, Brussels and London, without forgetting Charlottenburg and Williamsburg -- places that hold up against oblivion and reinvent themselves. Your club needs you.
