The first name I got in my head was Therapy, after the UK band with the same name. During this covid-19 the world stopped the stress, the humanity have slowed down, the factorys stopped to vomit shit to the air and water....therapy both for the earth and the people on the earth. Badly I think everything will go back to how it was before. But I still hope this corona-time have made some changes to the better...like a therapy?

I like that. Therapy. That's how it has felt each Monday, a little bit of sanity in a strange world.

Yepp me...and it could also be as a question (Therapy?) If the songs have been a therapy during the corona-time.

Dear Friends,
thank you all for your kind wishes. Now I'm on Route 66 and looking back, it was a nice and pleasant run. And since more than 36 years you have been a Rock in my life and you kept me Rolling. And all in all, I'd say, we're a great team.
Since I started with music, I always believed in the power of alliance, of community. And I believed in difference and in variety. An alliance of differencies, a community of diversity, that was my vision. The Nelson community was the first step in this direction. But I would never have thought that one day a global community of friends would take over the legacy of Nelson. Nevertheless it did and here we are, people from all over the world, of every colour, belief or nationality. We're here in this chaotic paradise of dangers and prove that it is possible to be creative, peaceful and most of all, friendly.
You have made me very happy with your presence, ideas, crits and raps, with your poems, dreams, your love and faithfulness. I will try my best to do the same for you and carry on writing the soundtrack of this Fantastic Voyage, even if it's not always the soundtrack you expect. But whatever it might be, it comes straight from the heart.
Have a beautiful Sunday, Knights of the Nelson Order ;-)
Marian Gold

A Happy (very belated) B-day to you, Nelson Order's best director. You're a big boy now & the moon is a harsh mistress.

Dear Friends,
the last three days Tobi stayed at our home and we worked on the video for the next or maybe second next song of ALPHAVILLE's now monthly MONDAY'S FOR GOOD song series. The concerning song, though written 8 years before, has an astonishingly newsworthy message, or better said, it gained a lot of unpleasant actuality in the meantime. Nevertheless, the song as such in my humble opinion is quite enjoyable. And even more will it be the video, which we almost finished this weekend. So, during the last three days (and nights) Tobi and me dived so deeply into our project we were totally disconnected from what was happening in the outside world. That was the reason the sad news of Rupert Hine's passing reached us not until this Sunday morning. Rupert produced my second solo-album UNITED and it was a great experience with a great outcome. I fondly remember the time of production at his lovely estate and later on at the Plus XXX in Paris and at the Metropolis in London. He was the spitting image of my imagination of an English aristocrat, his tall and very fragile appearance reflected perfectly his sensitivity, his distinctive sense of style and his extremely esthetical perception. On the other hand, as an artist he had the playfulness and the curiosity of a child. Besides his impact as a reputable musical producer he composed three outstanding albums of his own, IMMUNITY, WAVING NOT DROWNING and THE WILDEST WISH TO FLY that belonged to the crownjewels of my record collection as a kid. Would I then have ever dared to imagine that once he would produce one of my own albums? Never. Hence when it finally happened it was a dream come true. Thank you for that, dear Rupert, and also for your recommendation for the coolest hotel in Paris.

Can't help but love a good teaser with godlike numbers thrown in it for good measures. Thank you Marian, will try to look deeper at the end of the day.

Metropolis Studio -> United, Salvation + Forever Young unplugged (1996)
Lund, Sweden -> Alphaville at Blekingska Nationen (12.4.1996)


edit: (Keep the) Faith (Portobello) is also from London 1996, studio not named. Title fits nice with Moonbase post.
