Fassbinder's birthday


Today's Rainer Werner Fassbinder's birthday. The great German director, writer and actor would turn 70 today. Fassbinder's motion pictures have a big impact on SPIRITUAL FRONT music. In fact without Fassbinder we could probably never hear of SPIRITUAL FRONT.

You can find a lot of links to his movies in SF-songs. Starting with the video-remake for the song "Sad almost a winner" finishing with the great longplay "Black Hearts in Black Suits", totally inspired and dedicated to Fassbinder. "I wrote the lyrics inspired by his characters, by his stories, even because in his movies you can always find some of your life," - said Simone about the "BHIBS"-interview.


Here's what Simone told about his passion for Fassbinder:

I confess, I've always been a big fan of cinema, I knew his works by name but I never went deeper cause I always thought he did…something like boring, gaunt kraut cinema, but I was wrong, his cinema changed my life definitely and my way to consider life and cinema too, it  was  another fundamental ‘starting point’  for SPIRITUAL FRONT.

The first movie I watched was ‘Querelle’, suggested by  I girl I usually dated that period, it was the first year of university, she told me ‘OMG, your attitude reminds me the Fassbinder movies, you should watch Querelle!’ I was impressed, she was so right, hahahaha.

My favorite films by Fassbinder are: ‘Querelle’, ‘Fox and his friends’, ‘One year with 13 moons’
I can find something of myself in many of his characters, he told us real, deep, intimate stories, we always can tragically find a little portion of ourselves in them...

About the Fassbinder's portrait-tattoo: "It was painful but it worth, I’m very proud of it, I wanted to dedicate part of my body to him, he gave me something special and I wanted to homage him."

One of the common theme between SF and Fassbinder's movies is the morbid relations between who control and who obey, especially in the love relationship, the sick relations that grow when 2 people start to need each other, and nothing change if you are the master of slave, we always need something where to lead our violence, frustrations, or even happiness or desire, this is our limit.

Fassbinder shows us how our nature is ridiculous and wretched, how our mean middle class fake ideals.

Talking about the relationships between Fassbinder and his muse Hanna Shygulla, "he found something of himself in her, it sounds absurd". "I always thought about it, she represented a sort of  highest femininity standard. They were the perfect combination, the perfect alchemy," - said Simone. However, "who’s the person could have a long term relationship with him? He was so severe, extreme, humoral, hard to deal with, he had many dark side, I can t blame her if she never told him about maternity, well, I’m pretty sure he was great man, but living with him, sounds so extreme. It’s hard to combine the lives of such artists like them. It could be a time bomb!"


Probably he put in his cinema all his anger, love and everything. If you read his biography you can notice his life was full of death, abandons, uncertain paths etc…I mean it does justify you from selfdestructive attitude, drug and alcohol addiction, but sometimes they could sound as an alibi. I just think he had a extreme will to live, to communicate, he couldn’t wait his senility he couldn’t wait any longer.

SF fanart

SPIRITUAL FRONT inspires and encourages people to create their own art. No matter if it is a cover song, a film, a music video, or a picture, it will always be appreciated. Fans all over the world keep presenting their stuff, inspired by SF music. And here are some of them.

Simone inspires film-makers

Big news for the SPIRITUAL FRONT fans who also are into cinema!
Paola Rotasso (the director of SF-videos "Odete" and "Dear Lucifer") finished the script for her first feature film. It is going to be a psychological thriller. The main male character was inspired by Simone H. Salvatori. Obviously, the soundtrack for the motion picture contains Spiritual Front songs.



We are totally thrilled and wish a lot of luck for Paola and hope to see the film soon on the big screens!

And while waiting for the release of the film, don't forget to check out the video section for the musical videos of SPIRITUAL FRONT!
 

SIMONE'S BIRTHDAY

Simone Salvatori, the mastermind of the SPIRITUAL FRONT, turns 40 today.
He is going to organize a celebration gang in his native town Rome among friends with some sweets, mini pizzas and champagne! And there will be for sure playing Charles Aznavour's "Yeasterday when I was young".



Tanti auguri, Simone!

Update for Greece

The accident with the cancelation of the concert in Athens made a huge impression on Spiritual Front. Any kind of deprivation of the free speech has no excuse! Spiritual Front played in many other countries, including eastern Europe, where there are a lot of problems with human rights, but never did the musicians had any troubles because of this.
And here is another statement about the Athens' accident:

"Athens deeper!!
So...it seems that all the accusations/blaming etc etc were addressed to other bands and people involved in the same greek event BUT not to Spiritual front! thank God this time stupidity flew over us. Nothing changes when it comes 'Free speech', nothing changes my opinion about those who spend their time being cocky behind a rusty pc sending senseless sentences around the world ruining other people lives (reputation, work, event or whatever), it's ridiculous and coward. Move your asses and show us your names and faces, idiot fuckin' wankers!!!!"

Athens (Greece) cancelled

Athens cancelled!!!
Apparently police has been advised by some blind minded, idiot groups of people about the advent of …ambiguous, malicious, evil studs like Spiritual front and co, seems that these people are scared about freedom of speech, about those who think different and the easiest and most courageous way was to not allow our show through miserable coercive ways, prevent us from opening our mouths make 'em fell better and safer!!!! I’m very sorry for our greek fans, I really hope we’ll meet soon again!

SPIRITUAL FRONT COME TO GERMANY

BLACK HEARTS IN BLACK SUITS

A collaboration born of a long separation. Seven years after the highly acclaimed ARMAGEDDON GIGOLO, Simone Salvatori and Stefano Puri once again find their paths crossing.
BLACK HEARTS IN BLACK SUITS is the result of three years of work,
composed by Stefano Puri specifically for SPIRITUAL FRONT,
with Simone Salvatori lending his voice and interpretation (as intense and charismatic as ever) to the composer's music.
The poems of Reiner Werner Fassbinder are given new light as they materialize into musical form
as Stefano Puri sits at the piano and joins Simone Salvatori on a voyage of no return.
The SYMPOSIUM ENSEMBLE and the BLACK HEARTS CHOIR round out the endeavor.
The composer's writing - in one moment minimal and introspective, in the next dark and theatrical
- follows ancestral pathways along which the singers voice moves between intimacy and majesty,
between heavy chords and light harmonies, between airy string passages and obscure choral harmonies.
A concept album more akin to an opera than to the traditional LP, BLACK HEARTS IN BLACK SUITS
is a fascinating symphonic journey that takes us through the darkest nihilistic sides of both
the composer and the icon of "Suicide Pop".

From Franz Schubert to Nick Cave, Michael Nyman to David Tibet, from Arvo Pärt to Marc Almond... with no way back.
The album will be available in 4 different formats:
Digipack CD,Colored vinyl 299 copies with unreleased songs, Limited Box (299 copies) Contains:
2CD, Postcard, Sticker, Silver Heart Pendant, Black Velvet Bag.

Ultra Limited Deluxe Bag (Only 99 Copies!) Contains:
Limited Colored Vinyl , Limited Box, 2CD, Bonus CD, Postcard, Sticker, Silver Heart Pendant,
Poster, Black Velvet Bag, Certificate Of Authenticity.

Spiritual front new album! Open Wounds (lim. Hardback Book + 2CD)

Songs are like open wounds. Music can hurt. Can strike new wounds and tear up old ones. No one is more aware of this than „SIMONE HELLVIS“ SALVATORI.
His feverish music is a diary of his failures and triumphs, a deep scar running through his work.
He finds pleasure in the pain it causes him, sheds tears for the lust it evokes in him.
Like an Italian JOHNNY CASH, he clads his life in intimate ballads of becoming and withering, of sex and death.
SPIRITUAL FRONT is the Folk Noir crossbreed of ENNIO MORRICONE and NICK CAVE – Suicide Pop from a decadent otherworld.

Where secret passions are whispered into darkness, where dream and waking, intoxication and hangover dance closely, „Open Wounds“ feels at home: Morbid Mafia folklore for hedonistic self-destructors, murder ballads for decadent lotus-eaters.
Like a heavy red wine, SPIRITUAL FRONT‘s music gets better and better over the years – ever more exhilarating, ever more effective.
As if SIMONE SALVATORI had to reach a certain age to understand his music properly.
As if he had to accept that living means suffering. Now, the erotic enchantment of his masterpiece „Armageddon Gigolo“ is back.
On „Open Wounds“, it mates with delicate prowess and baffling arrangements that would invoke envy in every Mafia orchestra.

Sacred profoundness turns to sweaty sheets when SIMONE SALVATORI sings for his soul, when he trembles, hope, loves, suffers and lives.
The machismo and his guitar, joined by the orchestra - „Open Wounds“ is the epitome of Suicide Pop.
Sexy to the brim, sensual even in the face of certain death, full of whipping urgency.
To this, the bonus CD comes as a sharply acentuated contrast, uniting instrumentals, alternate versions and stunning reworks:
A calm and very moody view into the artistic life of this abyssic gigolo.
This second album is like the cuddling after the all-consuming act of love that is „Open Wounds“ - and SPIRITUAL FRONT is the lover
that disappears before dawn. Only a dream? The wounds tell a different story.
