Über Bassball II

Happy birthday Hellmut Hattler! Der Ausnahmebassist und Songwriter wird 65. Zeit für einen schönen, ausgiebigen Rückblick und dann die Rente genießen?

Unvorstellbar!

Weder das Glorifizieren der guten alten Zeiten, noch der Rückzug auf den Altenteil, kommen für Hattler in Frage. Die Ideen fließen. Der Mann hat den Bass fest im Griff, die Bühne ist sein Ding. Er holt die Vergangenheit in die Gegenwart und baut mit ihr die Zukunft. Die Kollegen und musikalischen Freunde und Freundinnen sämtlicher seiner Bands hat er ins Studio gerufen. Nicht um dem Nachhall des legendären KRAAN-Tracks »Wintruper Echo« nachzuhorchen, nicht um TAB TWOs »No Flagman Ahead« zu recyceln. Hellmut Hattler präsentiert ausschließlich Unverbrauchtes. Für jede seiner Formationen hat er neue Stücke komponiert und eingespielt: Mit KRAAN, TAB TWO, HATTLER, dem Ali Neander Projekt, Deep Dive Corp., SIYOU’n’HELL und weiteren Weggefährten. Hier manifestiert sich pure Lebensenergie. Hattlers Richtung ist: Vorwärts!

Der Album-Titel »Bassball II« verweist auf Hellmut Hattlers allererstes Soloalbum »Bassball«, entstanden im Jahr 1977. Die Erkenntnis, dass es Ideen in seinem Kopf gibt, die nur außerhalb seiner damaligen homebase, der Band KRAAN, zu realisieren waren, greift er als Impuls auf. Das neue Album „Bassball II“ kommt nicht mit einer Band-Besetzung aus. Hellmut Hattler nutzt die ganze Spielwiese seiner verschiedenen Projekte und hat gezielt neue Titel für die jeweiligen Künstler komponiert. Darunter Acts, mit denen er Welterfolge feiern konnte.

Dass die verschiedenen Formationen, Philosophien und Sounds alle unter einen Hut passen, hat Hattler längst bewiesen. Zu seinem 60sten standen alle auf einer Bühne, in seiner Heimatstadt Ulm. Alles war mit allem verbunden, zusammengehalten durch sein markantes Bassspiel und seinen unverkennbaren Kompositionsstil. Genau das ist es, was auf seinem neuen Album greift. Hellmut Hattler hat die Latte hoch gehängt: »Die wahrscheinlich beste musikalische Idee meines Lebens …«

»Bassball II« ist, ganz ohne ein Best-Of-Album zu sein, das Beste von Hellmut Hattler.

    Lyrics

    Tout va bien – et aussi bien retour, c’est pourquoi j’adore l’amour à Altenburg

    Toujours l’amour à Altenburg, oui, ça va très bien – mais aussi bien retour
    I never managed to live my life – but I guess – you’ll dye my death.

    Tout va bien et aussi bien retour, j’adore bien l’amour à Altenburg
    I never managed to live my life – but I guess – I’ll dye your death.

  8. While I Play The Blues HELLMUT HATTLER with HATTLER (Music: Hattler/Musebrink, words: Hattler)
    Lyrics

    Don’t read these lines as you might lose all hope
    I drank your wine and burned your favourite dough
    Read my talking lips, taste my gritty tears and sigh – while I play the blues

    Ignoring calls help to define your scope
    All unread notes help to regain some hope
    Ignore my desperate vows, believe the latest news and sigh – while I play the blues.

    Forget the messages I’ve sent before
    Ignore my notes and miss the same old score
    Kiss my trembling lips, inhale my latest words and cry – while I play the blues.

    Ignored your look and missed your favourite soap
    Ignored your tears and flushed your private dope
    Hear my whiny voice, close your tired eyes and die – while I play the blues.

  9. Trident HELLMUT HATTLER with HATTLER (Words and music: Hattler)
    Lyrics

    Can’t go wrong – if there’s a sign beyond the dawn
    A day’s too long – if there’s no sleep since you’ve been gone
    One night away – no hideaways
    Now all I want – is getting away from where I am

    Are we silly? Are we awesome? Are we frightened?
    The next big sign we’re told to long for: the mighty trident

    Define “so long” – don’t want no one to hear me sigh
    Feels so wrong not to believe that I’ll survive
    Miss our hangs – when we went mad to go too far
    Now all I want: is getting away from where we are

    Are we silly? Are we awesome? Are we frightened?
    Are we in what we’ve been out to – worship tridents?

    Say: don’t you wanna save me, mighty trident, say?
    Or are you out to save tobago?
    Don’t you wanna save me, silent trident, say?
    If you don’t I’ll die, but later – a lil later

    Can’t go wrong – while waiting for signs beyond the dawn
    Define „so long“ – couldn’t find sleep since you’ve been gone
    Won’t take long …

    Seems so long – that we went mad to go too far
    Now all I want: is getting away from where we are (now)

    Are we silly? Are we awesome? Are we frightened?
    Now it’s in what I’ve been out for – the mighty trident
    Are we silly? Are we awesome? Are we frightened?
    We keep on dancing to the wrong songs – to please a trident

    Feels so wrong – silent trident
    Way too long – you called me frightened

    Feels so wrong … feels so wrong …

    Are we silly? Are we awesome? Are we frightened?
    Call it climbing up the wrong walls – to serve a trident

    Feel so wrong – mighty trident
    Way too long – you saw me frightened

    Are we silly? Are we awesome? Are we frightened?
    It’s all erased what I should know to – defeat the trident

  10. Mow Fun HELLMUT HATTLER with SIYOU’n’HELL (Words and music: Hattler)
    Lyrics

    It ain’t ups and downs – when you’re flat on the ground
    There’s a difference to down and out
    I’ve got ups and downs – throw my things all around
    I’m in heaven of down and out

    Mow fun – mow fun below – mow fun below zero
    Mow fun – mow fun below – mow fun below zero
    Mo’ fun below zero

    It ain’t ups and downs when your ship ran aground
    Where’s the difference to down and out
    I’ve got ups and downs – hear you drub on the ground
    Call it heaven of drownig loud

    Mow fun – mow fun below – m=w fun below zero
    Mow fun – mow fun below – mow fun below zero
    Mo’ fun below zero

    There’s no bad side, good side, wrong side, right?
    It’s just upsides, downsides and insideouts, having …
    … fun, mo’ fun below – mo’ fun below zero
    Mo’ fun below zero

    There’s no bad side, good side, wrong side, right?
    It’s just upsides, downsides and insideouts, having …
    … fun, mo’ fun below – mo’ fun below zero
    Mo’ fun below zero

    I’ve got ups and downs – throw your things all around
    What a difference to down and out
    It ain’t ups and downs – when you’re flat on the ground
    You’re in heaven of drowning loud

    Mow fun, mow fun below – mow fun below zero
    Mow fun, mow fun below – mow fun below zero
    Mow fun, mow fun below – mow fun below zero
    Mo’ fun, mo’ fun below – mo’ fun below zero
    Mo’ fun below zero

  12. Tiny Little Mad HELLMUT HATTLER & FRIENDS (feat. Sandie Wollasch) (Words and music: Hattler)
    Lyrics

    Call it truck, call it lorry
    If you’d call me I’d be glad
    We ain’t lost we ain’t sorry
    But a tiny little mad

    And to be mad about you really feels fine
    I’ll be mad for you as long as you’re mine

    You never know what shy hellos one day turn out to be
    I only know that love has wiped away all misery

    Call it dawn, call it gloaming
    If you’d call me I’d be glad
    We ain’t done, just done roaming
    And a tiny little mad

    But to be mad about you makes me feel fine
    I’ll be mad for you as long as you’re mine

    Call it truck, call it lorry
    If you’d call me I’d be glad
    We ain’t lost, we ain’t sorry
    Maybe a tiny little mad

    Coz to be mad about you really feels fine
    I’ll be mad for you as long as you’re mine

    I never knew what all these shy hellos turn out to be
    I only see that love has blown away our misery

    Call it dawn, call it gloaming
    If you’d call me I’d be glad
    We ain’t done, just done roaming
    There’s no reason to be sad

    Coz to be mad about you makes me feel fine
    I’ll be mad for you as long as you’re mine
    To be mad about you makes me feel fine
