FSK frontman and author Thomas Meinecke’s Plattenspieler series continues at HAU2. Thomas Meinecke regularly asks different guests to come and talk with him about music, their cultural suppositions, and their visual preferences.
This time his guest is Detlef Diederichsen, legendary pop journalist and curator at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin.
F.S.K. | Lady Chatterly
Thomas Meinecke was born in Hamburg, Germany, and lives south of Munich in pre-alpine rural Bavaria. He is a novelist, a musician, and a DJ. Thomas has been publishing books on Suhrkamp since 1986. Thomas has been recording with his Munich-based band F.S.K. since 1980 in Germany, England, and the U.S.A. From the mid 1980’s until the very evening before John Peel’s funeral F.S.K. have recorded more John Peel BBC 1 Sessions than any other non-British band.
Meinecke’s guest on this occasion is Detlef Diederichsen who as artistic curator for the Haus der Kulturen der Welt plays an integral role in the musical and cultural landscape of Berlin. He is behind the programme for the HKWs highly successful Worldtronics series as well as the Wassermusik events. As a founding member of the HKW house band, the Chor der Kulturen (Choir of World Cultures) and through his own label Moll Tonträger in the 90s, Diederichsen’s own musical expression finds voice.
