From "The KS Circle" # 54 ... (Nostalgic recollection, pt. 23)

During our Schulze concerts in the seventies, when an apparatus didn't work properly, I used a simple (and in a way barbaric) trick to make it work again.
. . . . When I read in Januar 2001 the interview that Peter Bogdanovich did in 1965 with film director Fritz Lang, I smiled and my concert memories came back. Famous film director Lang spoke about the work on his movie "M" in 1931: "The sound engineer had a wooden hammer, and every time something didn't work with the equipment, he took his hammer and just used it."
. . . . 45 years later and without knowing about the manners of Fritz Lang's sound engineer, I used my fist or foot. It worked too, then. Mostly.
