Filmmakers and archivists Dietmar Post & Lucía Palacios filmed the DIE REGIERUNG show especially for the "play loud! (live) music series" on March 20, 2015 at Grend in Essen (Germany). It was their first show after the band had stopped playing in 1994.
Read here Christoph Gurk's linernotes to the "Sturm und Twang" compilation, 1995 Big Cat Records:
"Led by an acidhead, who is already in his thirties, the singer/songwriter band has lived through an erratic career. Originally founded as a home-recording outfit, Die Regierung (The Government) released a seminal debut album (Supermüll / Super Trash / 1984) in the aftermath of German New Wave (NDW). Shortly afterwards the band leader Tilman Rossmy vanished from earth for half a decade. In the early nineties he reappeared with three touching albums."
play loud! will release also the original first LP "Supermüll" on vinyl together with a second "Supermüll Tribute Album". Also a never before released live show from 1994 will be released as a double vinyl LP including artwork by Oliver Jordan, who was responsible for the beautiful cover to "Supermüll". Please stay tuned for more releases and news regarding DIE REGIERUNG.

CONCEPT BEHIND THE PLAY LOUD! (LIVE) MUSIC SERIES:
The "play loud! (live) music series" has been initiated by filmmakers Dietmar Post & Lucía
Palacios (responsible for monks – the transatlantic feedback, Reverend Billy, Klangbad,
Franco’s Settlers). The series parts from three ideas, Alan Lomax's work as an archivist and chronicler, John Peel's BBC radio sessions and the work of Direct Cinema pioneers, such as, Maysles Brothers, Leacock, Wildenhahn and Pennebaker. Filming live shows meant not to do it in a TV style but in a very personal, intuitive and adventurous style – nothing is staged for filming. You go along as it happens. Some of the live performances are filmed with only one camera in one continuous shot without any edits. Some critics have labeled it as "filmed paintings/painted films".
play loud!’s music films have been called: “raw”, “rough”, “canny”, “straightforward”,
“adventurous”, “witty”, “insightful”, “direct”, “non-tricksy”, “economic”, “minimal”, “unpretentious handheld camera work”, "artful film paintings" …
play loud!’s intention is to furthermore create an extensive archive of interesting popular music that includes also the possibility to screen/stream material that comes from other sources.
