Last night I was trawling around the net and made a startling discovery: Funhausen is not a unique moniker. It appears that Starfuckers, an Italian out-rock unit active in the nineties that has since changed their name to Sinistri, released their debut "Metallic Diseases" on Holy Mountain in 1990, and were classified by the label as "Funhausen" (i.e., Funhouse meets Stockhausen, which is exactly my reference). Stumbling across that obscure history made me feel an unwelcome reality check sucker punch. Of course, now I have to listen to that record. My later attempts to sleep were continually interrupted by dream or near-dream states where I was trying to explain my Funhausen to people, acquaintances as well as strangers, and they either didn't get it or just didn't give a fuck. I'd wake up, tense and disillusioned, drift off again, and the encounters resumed until the alarm shrilled me into the morning.
