Initially printed up as a souvenir to sell on a recent tour to Japan, this enchanting little three-inch CD was later on made available to everyone, also on Vinyl. Sixteen minutes and forty-nine seconds of pure fun over six tracks, ranging from wacky to slightly cute and a tad cheesy to kind of melancholic.

Disco stomp and sway on 'Phonebashing' and 'I Lost My Heart in Reykjavik'; an improvised love letter to Felix and the city of Hamburg on 'Mondgesang', spoken into an answering machine by the creator of Kubin's album covers, Mariola Brillowska; the wonderfully corny and sleazy 'Hotel Supernova'; and, to round things off, a little twisted future jazz for the Eurotrash crowd, a remix for People Like Us. A tasty appetiser. 

Featuring "Rubbermind" drums by Max Goldt on "I lost my heart in Reykjavik" and additional programming by Viktor Marek on "Phonebashing".

Die Quelle verborgen / Im Berg im Salz ein Bach / Eine Spieluhr hoere ich.
