Kreisky - Blick auf die Alpen
Kreisky have never made a boring music video. Just don’t get too distracted by the story, the music or Wenzl’s cocker-worthy dancing to miss the lyrics because they are just too delightfully vicious.
Kreisky - Pipelines
Kreisky’s Franz Adrian Wenzl flies above the clouds on a plush toy* and discovers the three other, pipeline-coloured giant band members who wake up and become angry after he discovers and blows some kind of horn.
*It’s Fuchur, thanks orf.at.
Kreisky - Selbe Stadt, anderer Planet
My first reaction to Kreiskys new single was “Well, fuck youuuuuuuu, Kreisky!” because I saw the video when I came back home from an 8 a.m. class from and to which I travelled in heavy rain. My second reaction was: “Damn, it’s been a while and I forgot how good Kreisky are. I cannot wait for their new album.”
It is called “Blick auf die Alpen” and comes out in January, by the way.
As for the video, for a long time this looks like one of those videos where nothing happens and you’ll just be watching a cigarette burn for three minutes but it’s not. Stuff’ll happen. E.g. something I suspect to be avian cannibalism.

It’s been quite a while since my last Kreisky gig, but there is one thing that will probably never change: my ambivalence when it comes to their music. While some of their songs burst with the genius combination of their bluntness, the critical viewpoint and the harsh guitar sound, it quite often feels too bulky, too erratic, too repetitive. Those couple of new songs Kreisky performed at the first edition of the new festival series Interlude Festival left me with the same feeling. Their show however was grand, as usual.

Fred Schreiber is not only a musician (Fred Schreiber, Die Falschen Freunde) but also happens to be one of the makers of the Sendung ohne Namen. A whole lot of representatives of the local music scene gathered some time ago to record a version of one of Schreiber’s songs for the ORF show, including Gustav, The Beth Edges, Skero, Mauracher, pauT, Fuzzman, Der Nino aus Wien, Discoparty Brothers, Das trojanische Pferd, Kreisky, Heinz aus Wien, Attwenger, Christoph & Lollo, Kidcat Lo-Fi, Luise Pop, Garish, Florian Horwath, A Life, A Song, A Cigarette, Curbs, I-Wolf and Fred Schreiber himself.

Ja, wir haben dein Tagebuch gelesen; das ist unser gutes Recht

Kreisky - Bitte Bitte
This is a video of Kreisky reenacting cat memes and general cat behaviour, and yes, this is every bit as amazing as it sounds.
