I met Steve Morell many times and he has always impressed me. Steve has a great presence and a true talent. I met him in the process of going back and forth between Prague and Berlin. I would meet him in one city or the other. Like me, Steve is also connected with both Berlin and Prague. He is engaged to an amazing czech woman & performer Monika Pokorna (They also are creative partners doing many collaborations together such as the recent video for Paula Immich. It is a video of Steve´s music.Steve and Monika sing on it) and has the strong connection between both of these cities. I am still trying to understand the connection between these two cities. I first saw him DJing, perhaps at White Trash in Berlin, but then again Steve is so much part of the night cultural scene in Berlin I must have met him and experienced his creativity and music many times. I have featured him in the earlier Einsturzende Neubauten photos and writing.
I wrote earlier that John Murphy was the last person that I last interviewed for the Richard Lowenstein documentary about Rowland S. Howard. It was not true. Steve was the last person and we were frazzled and frenzied. Everything was going wrong, we were late, Chris Hughes and I met Steve at the Dead Chicken bar otherwise known as Eschaloraque.in Mitte, Berlin. After being far too late, Steve had enough and was not the happiest. We managed to do the interviews and I took this photo in the toilet at this wonderful sweet Berlin bar. It is the result of this mayhem. It is a frazzled and frenzied photo.
Steve is an incredible Berlin producer, musician & DJ. He has just released 12” single of a haunting song called Loneliness. It is a release from Steve´s forthcoming album “The Life and Death of Jimmy Pheres and his Rise from the Underworld” There are two versions from Steve and refined by the backing vocals of Johanna Sadonis as well as one Remix by Alexander Hacke (Einstürzende Neubauten) and England's best electro producers Punx Soundcheck who just finished a remix for Bloc Party. Steve is the head of Pale Music International. It is a music production company that produces and works with very special musicians. Steve does wonderful remixes with people he enjoys.
