Burnt Ramen Reduced to Ashes
Reported by: Klaus Gräbme
A food often associated with the disenfranchised, the downtrodden,
the "angst ridden fringe types". A food by which to write
a scathing manifesto condemning the trappings of the Fascist status
quo. Burnt Ramen. Food for the really, really, hungry.
Burnt Ramen is also a performance space hidden in an industrial
sector of Richmond, California that is believed to be undetectable
and impenetrable by the Fascists. Hopefully this will hold true,
for tonight ArnoCorps is slotted to headline in what is only their
second show on U.S. soil, a true testament to their power indeed.
They will not be alone however for they have backup by units with
such names as The Deficient and Fevered Pitch.
After The Deficient and Fevered Pitch subjected Burnt Ramen to their
powerful playing and leftist rhetoric ArnoCorps was set to commence
with their auditory bludgeoning of the eager crowd. There was just
one small problem however Holzfeuer was missing. Visions
of Holzfeuer trapped in a windowless Austrian jail cell filled my
mind but he was soon located outside by Inzo smearing mud on his
face. When asked why he would risk his own personal safety by venturing
outside the confines of the club just to smear mud on his face Holzfeuer
replied, "I certainly didn't do this to improve my complexion.
I did this to honor my fallen brethren and all people who have sacrificed
their lives in the name of justice and righteousness. I did this
to make sure I never forget their struggle."
The mud not only had a special effect on Holzfeuer but it appeared
to also serve as inspiration for members of the crowd, many of whom
couldn't contain themselves and began violently singing along with
Holzfeuer on many of the bands songs. This exemplified a quite strange
phenomenon I have observed over the years people who have
never heard ArnoCorps and know nothing about them or the ways of
Arno are somehow compelled to rush the stage and sing lyrics they
have never heard or read before in their lives. It is almost like
there is some sort of telepathic connection between some members
of the crowd and the band.
Aside from the band tearing through their normal set they surprised
themselves and the crowd with a rendition of one of their new songs
entitled "Commando". This song saw Inzo move to drums
and Nagelbett move to lead guitar thus showcasing the versatility
and the musical aptitude of the new American ArnoCorps while winning
over many new followers in the process.
Be sure to catch ArnoCorps tomorrow night at the Veteran's Hall
in Brentwood, California where they will lend their services to
a good cause - raising money to help find a cure for Leukemia.
