Then came the second single ‘What Is Love?’ which reached No. 2 in the UK and the third single, the enigmatic ‘Hide and Seek’ This was followed by the first album ‘Human’s Lib’ which came straight in at No. 1 in the UK in April 1984. This success spread across the globe with ‘Human’s Lib’ going gold in USA, Japan, Germany, Italy and Australia.

Verschwende Deine Jugend
Komödie/Drama BRD 2002

Regie: Benjamin Quabeck

Buch: Jürgen Teipel

http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Verschwende_deine_Jugend_(Film)

*Verschwende deine Jugend, das war zuerst einer der größten Hits der Band DAF, ihres Zeichens Vorreiter der Neuen Deutschen Welle, dann der Name eines Buches von Jürgen Teipel in dem er die Geschichte dieser Ära nachzeichnete, und schlussendlich nun der Titel des zweiten Films von Regietalent Benjamin Quabeck (Nichts Bereuen), eine augenzwinkernde Reise zurück in die frühen 1980er-Jahre, als das ganze Land von der NDW gepackt wurde.

*Mit großem Aufwand an Kostüm, Maske, Ausstattung und fast 1.000 Komparsen hat Benjamin Quabeck das Drehbuch von Ralf Hertwig (Ex-Palais Schaumburg) und Kathrin Richter umgesetzt und den Anfängen der NEUEN DEUTSCHEN WELLE nachgespürt - eine Zeit des Aufbruchs in der deutschen Musik, des Versuchs neue Wege zu gehen und der Stärke der Jugend das Unmögliche zu wagen. Mit Philip Stegers aka Lee Buddah konnte ein Musiker gewonnen werden, der den Sound von damals ins Heute transferiert und neu gestaltet hat.

http://www.einsfestival.de/film_serie/highlights/2010/kw_24/millionenspiel.jsp
http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Das_Millionenspiel

*Die kommerziellen Fernsehanstalten der Zukunft überbieten sich mit sensationellen Sendungen. Am beliebtesten sind die sogenannten Todesspiele - sie werden sieben Tage lang live übertragen! Hier rennt Bernhard Lotz aus Leverkusen um sein Leben und um eine Million Mark. Drei professionelle Killer sind ihm auf den Fersen. Endrunde: öffentliche Veranstaltung auf einem Marktplatz - vor den Augen der Nation und den Pistolen der Killer wird Lotz sich ein letztes Mal zu bewähren haben, nachdem er ein mörderisches Autorennen überlebte und ein Sportflugzeug landete, obwohl er noch nie im Leben eines gesteuert hatte. Die Kameras verfolgen alles: von Dächern, aus Autos und Hubschraubern wird seine Flucht dem Publikum vorgeführt. Ein ´Millionenspiel´ ...

*1970 drehten Wolfgang Menge und Tom Toelle mit ´Das Millionenspiel´ diesen zeitkritischen und visionären Mix aus Fiktion und Satire um eine Fernsehsendung der Zukunft – drei Jahrzehnte, bevor die ersten Reality-Shows im deutschen TV liefen.

*Die Satire auf Quotenhörigkeit, Sensationsgier, Heuchelei und Menschenverachtung des Fernsehens hielten bei der Erstausstrahlung 1970 viele Zuschauer für eine reale Veranstaltung und bewarben sich als Teilnehmer.

Chapterhouse [uk] - We´re the beautiful (1993)
http://www.myspace.com/chapterhouseofficial
http://www.chapterhouse.info

*Chapterhouse were a British shoegazing band of the early 1990s, originally from Reading, England.
 

*Both Tracks were released as singles and taken from their 2nd Album`Blood Music´, released in 1993.
*Fundamental disparities regarding songwriting and production between the band and the label, which had first appeared during the 'Blood Music' album, continued to escalate. The label did not wish to release the band from their contract, but neither did they wish to entertain the band's desire to return to their original songwriting and production values. The only way for the band members to progress was to disband and pursue their musical careers elsewhere. They split in 1995.

*In November 2009 Chapterhouse played their first gig in 14 years, selling out the ICA, London. With such a fantastic response from this show, the band has happily agreed to play a handful of shows in 2010 to give fans one last chance to see them play live. Although they are not reforming permanently, they are looking forward to playing together again for these few dates.

Paterson has been the only permanent member, continuing to work as The Orb with the Swiss-German producer Thomas Fehlmann and later with Martin "Youth" Glover and Tim Bran of Dreadzone.
