about

Recorded during a three day stop in Berlin during Kiss The Frog's Fall 2002 European tour, The Berlin Tapes features raw intensity of a KTF live show spread over five tracks.

The Berlin Tapes features the first - and heaviest - recording of KTF classic "Propaganda" which was one of the first songwriting collaborations between Charles and lyricist Jesse Jarnow. "Spy vs Spy" is child's seeing a parallel between playground antics and the classic Mad Magazine strip. "Berliner Studie" is an atmospheric recomposition of KTF improvisation by engineer Dan Kadoo. "Hard" is an improvised, drop D excursion into thrash metal based on an improvisation that took place days earlier at a tour stop in Immeldorf, Germany. "Destination Imagination" is a dreamy narcotic prescription for understanding and peace at the dawn of the still going war on terror.

Special thanks to Craig Judkins, The Rock, Rich Ciccotelli, Dan Kadoo, Almut Schwacke, Eva Judkins, Jesse Jarnow, Dave Kingdon, Mica Koizumi, Lesli Watts, Laurie Ray, eBong.org, Berlin University Tonstudio and all the freaks who came out to see us on our 2002 tour.
