dr. huelsenbeck's mentale heilmethode.

Peter Blegvad, Roman Bunka, Holger Czukay, Raymond Federman, John Greaves, John Sass, Stefan Schwerdtfeger, with special appearances by Richard Huelsenbeck and Hans Richter, and produced by Herbert Kapfer and Regina Moths: dr. huelsenbeck's mentale heilmethode (Rough Trade Rec, Eickelestr. 25, 4690 Herne 2, Germany). A free-swinging, altogether unpredictable tribute to the Cabaret Voltaire Dadaist and New York psychoanalyst, this radio-play version of Huelsenbeck's "psychological salvation system" explodes all over the place: in the six-and-a-half-minute Berlin Dada donnybrook "rohrenhose rokoko-neger-rhythmus," in the weird "hottentotten-kral new york," in the ghostly occasional samples from lectures and interviews by Huelsenbeck himself, adn especially with American Peter Blegvad's rendition of the old Dada hit "Ende der Welt," which is here performed in English, as a blues. Huelsenbeck, who always thought his act was "Negro poetry," a kind of German ragtime, would be--well, who knows what he'd be?
