You know that feeling you
get when you're driving along and all of a sudden you hit a patch of ice
or maybe a puddle, and for a split second, you're totally out of control?
Then you get it together and everything's fine, and the only proof you
have that anything even happened is that you have absolutely no saliva
in your mouth? It's kinda cool, right? Not really scary, just startling,
unpredictable. If you captured that dynamic in music it might sound like
Notwist. The German band says it derives its sound from the dialectical
process. What does that mean? It means the band does the "logical argumentation"
on 12, and your role is just to stay with it if you can. It's like they
teach you in driver's ed - when you hit that puddle, don't fight it - you
just gotta go with it.
