about

ad hoc Winterthur, Switzerland

Striking are the unusual, but melodious vocal lines, sometimes crossing the border to prog rock, and sometimes to Country.

Die Stimmen schaffen zusammen mit Gitarre, Violine oder Mandoline eine dichte und gleichzeitig fragile Atmosphäre. „ad hoc“ singen von Geheimnissen der Liebe, von Leuten, die nie ganz fassbar sind und von der Stärke der Naivität, die auch Enttäuschungen nicht scheut.

Track Name: Pilgarlic
Pilgarlic

On a sunny day in June the leaves where falling off the trees
The world was drunk
And so was I, one minute I forgot the seconds that
Make time
The less you know, the faster you decide
On your silly conclusions
My mind jumped bail on the lost trail to myself
I won’t walk your pilgarlic

I’m glad you’re listening, but this song’s for me
You can have a piece if you marry me or my dog

I can’t talk to you, cause I won’t be untrue
Still a lot of things to tell, burning like a smoldering stone
I’d rather shut up, cause I couldn’t stop
That acting part is just for you

Refrain viola part

I’m glad you’re listening, but this song’s for me
You can’t have a piece if you try to be someone else

I made up my mind you can have it now
If you dig out your heart with a wooden spoon, wooden Spoon, wooden Spoon
Track Name: Happy my Ass
Happy my ass

I like the place where I sit, but I caught myself wanting to
change it all and turn my face to other walls
And take a ride

Oh, I like to see the shining light, shining trough the windows bright, of the City where I live
and I caught myself wanting to stay

I got two legs to run away and I got a brain, a brain to make me stay
I got two legs to run away and I got a brain, a brain to make me stay

Well you can walk from pillar to post or stay where you are beloved ohh, ohh ohh ohh ohh

Instrumental

Hang over walking in a wicked park, I take a wee on a tree, sit on a bench till it’s getting dark
and I caught myself wanting to stay
Track Name: Bursting Blister
Bursting Blister

Your first name got seven letters my surname got seven too
We have much in common and what numbers tell is always true… oh ah

We just meet by chance and we talk sometimes then I flow trough time

When you are around I feel heat on my skin
When you are around I feel heat on my skin

I’m restless now and I will be till the bursting
light divides dawn, light divides dawn
Thoughts of you turning around in my head my body’s moving to the beat, moving to the beat
In the disco heat…. In the disco heat


I cooked for many other girls but I only want to cook for you ohh this is true
The leaves are falling, waiting to get crushed by our feet
by our feet

so I propose you to take a never ending walk, a never ending walk with me

I’m restless now and I will be till the bursting light divides dawn, light divides dawn
Thoughts of you turning around in my head my body’s moving to the beat, moving to the beat
In the disco heat…. In the disco heat
Track Name: Once or twice
Once or twice

I saw you once, I saw you twice and I
even talked to you, call me a superhero, I
tried to be funny, but I should have been me, you
came out of the lavatory, dragging toilet paper
On your high heels

I dug out words with a sturdy shovel
It’s all about creative thinking but my ideas evaporated

As my nose caught the smell of your body
As my ear caught the sound of you laughing

I’m a proud man, I’m not sitting down to piss, but I
would change this silly habit
Just for you, if that’s your wish

Oh, I nearly died, ‘cause you, you left with some other man and you looked quite drunk and unsatisfied
Oh, I was lucky! the bar, the bar was still there
At least that was the beginning of this song!!
Track Name: Commemorate
Commemorate

Try to be prepared, as the boy scouts are fanning out
Adventures to find
It’s quite hard to walk with an open parashute,
but you won’t regret
Once you stumble down, this perfect tragedy

Just make sure your pockets are filled with fortune cookies
Enough and to spare
You never know what to expect

So, I want you to commemorate
The can is closed, so concentrate
You’re not alone in this trade
So, I want you to commemorate

I comprehend it’s not easy
I comprehend it’s not easy

INSTRUMENTAL

Please, settle up and place another bet
Please, settle down, to get lost again

Stray around, like children hunting doves in the park
Those who wander are not lost at all

Life means living with the aftermath
It’s a thrill just take the pill
You never know what to expect

So, I want you to commemorate
The can is close, so concentrate
You’re not alone on this trade
So, I want you to commemorate

I comprehend it’s not easy
I comprehend it’s not easy
Track Name: Dead fish
Dead Fish

When I woke up this morning
I reached out my hand
I wanted to touch your soft hair
But I just found
One, you probably left for me
Or you just lost it
I tried to sell it on e-bay
But nobody made a
Bid, I just wondered if somebody else
Could see the value it has for me
It’s just a dead trace of protein
Produced by your body
So soft and clean

Ahh, ahh. Ohhh

Hey, dreaming is healthy
If you just let go
It increases your power, you felt it
Once before
I never said we have to walk on the same trail
Through our lives
But I would admit you to walk
In parallel
And we would have some fun
If our trails would melt
To one
Time by time

Ahh, ahh. Ohhh

An old punk wisdom says, only dead fish
Are drifting downstream
I wouldn’t call you a dead fish, but you
Probably
Came too close to some fishermen doing
Their work with dynamite
And now you’re floating downstream in some
Moony delirium

2x Maybe love is on an old thing
Invented centuries before we were born
But this is no reason
To let it all fall apart
To let it all fall apart
Track Name: Murmuring
Murmuring

Some say what they think
Some do what they say
It seems to be the right approach
And not so tough at all

There are some, running away
And some, who stay for years
This seems to be how it is
Nobody can complain

XX in a curious way
XX concerned as a man
Xx who’s chased by a (dog)
XX and still not knowing why

Some they play just their role
Some are groaning loudly
Murmuring pleasant things
Reflecting feverish love

There are some, running away
And some, who stay for years
This seems to be how it is
Nobody can complain

XX in a curious way
XX concerned as a man
XX who’s chased by a dog
XX concerned as a man
XX who’s straining at the leash
XX and still not knowing why

Notorious embarrassment
of a spiteful glimpse
Track Name: Loom of the Lane
Loom of the Lane

Eyelids open to a new day
The ceiling remains grey
Half wandering in dreams
…They could go on and on and on

Yesterday’s dishes are dirty in the sink
Litterbags on the street
Concrete walls
…The dusty clouds are floating low

I know what I will see, when I close my
Eye know what I will see, when I close my eyes

Words are flying through the air, yells and shouts
Cursing people everywhere
Thousand faces chasing through
…trembling uncertainty

Turned inside
Turned inside, but smiling at the outside world
Lost the reins
And anyhow off the hook

Refrain

(Like) migratory birds, scattered to the four winds
Dyed in the wool
In-line, in-plane
… we need to pull out all the stops, the stops, the stops

Refrain// I know its you
