The Wolfmen's Halloween Jukebox...

Next to step out of the shadows is Wolf-drummer Daniel Strittmatter who brings us Es geht eine Träne auf Reisen . The title translates as A Tear Goes Travelling in English, although Daniel advises it's probably best not translate the rest of the song's lyrics..Why? Let's ask Daniel..

It is a great song but lyrics are nothing for faint English politically correct baffoons. It is about how the love of a man for a young boy ended in him being killed by a priest on Halloween night - the priest then took the boy himself.

Plectrum Analyzer

There's a triple-whammy of Wolfmen goodies grabbable over at our favourite new webzine (and bi-monthly magazine) Plectrum - The Cultural Pick

Plectrum is both a website and hard-copy magazine keeping a contemporary eye on all areas of the arts - fashion, film, music, books and performance. A kaleidoscopic mix where Beatle Boots and Biba, Nigel Weymouth and The Wolfmen appear on the pop-culture playlist. So what was Plectrum's take on Jackie ?

'Surreal, transcendent, glamorous pop'

Is just one line from possibly the review of the year. It's a must-read and is viewable right here.

And, as a Bocca bonus, check out Plectrum's Guy Sangster Adams in-depth interview with Wolf-meisters Marco and Chris. A pitch perfect contextulisation, threading together and time-lining Ants history, Wolfmen formation and current collaborators and projects.

You can dig in here, and watch the video interview via the Plectrum Broadcast Player
