Imagine War /1

Imagine War

Concert performance, 30', A Window in Berlin, May 4, 2014

Concept and transcriptions: Hajnal Németh

Version 1 performed by: Halfblind Henry & His Instabilities

Imagine War - Version 1 is a 30 min long concert performed by a band - Halfblind Henry & His Instabilities. It's a compilation of 10 songs, a selection of known hits from the 60's and 70's. The musical interpretation leaves the melodies recognizable, but the recognizability of the texts is delusive. The lyrics are transcriptions with minimal formal intervention, however, the interchanges of a few significant words in them, results a complete transformation in their content.

Repertoire: "Here Comes The Gun, I’ll Be Your Terror, I Slave, Unity In The A.K., Who Knows?, Lie Alphabet, Ending On My Mind, Meme Fatale, Imagine War, Crime Is On My Side".

The originals are from: The Beatles, The Velvet Underground, The Rolling Stones, Sex Pistols, David Bowie, Amanda Lear, The Easybeats, John Lennon.
