"Malaysia Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad and the Sultan of Johor are seen in a blue Proton Saga... "When asked whether there is any tension with the sultan, Dr Mahathir said: “No, I don’t see anything because I went to see him and he drove me to the airport. I don’t want to comment on the sultans because if I say anything that is not good then it’s not nice because he is the sultan”"

"If someone wants a sheep, then that means that he exists." - Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Would you pay $40 ($30 for students, NSFs and senior citizens) for the following?


"I can play the rear window like a flute with my wet finger, and use nearly every part of the car in a drum solo... in my opinion, the car is one of the most underestimated instruments in the world — Christian von Richthofen, Creator of Auto Auto

Car Smashing Symphony for ONE night only!

Accompanied by his sidekick, a classically trained percussionist and music teacher turn a car into a symphony orchestra! A highly sensitive and side-splitting musical oddity, the two musicians turn a car into a heap of scrap metal with the aid of a variety of weaponry such as an axe, a chainsaw, crowbars and sledgehammer! Expect windshield wipers to be ripped off and played like a violin, opera extracts and delivery of comic monologues in between the musical poetry of destruction! From Bach to Benny Goodman, Tchaikovsky to Motorhead, these doyens of diesel turn motoring
into unbelievable music!"

From the Esplanade site:

"Belt up and set off on a side-splitting musical oddity that’s best described as a cross between a car crash and an a cappella group, with music ranging from Bach to Motörhead, from hip-hop to Tchaikovsky. All executed upon the various surfaces of a car, complete with showers of glass and steel shrapnel.

Christian von Richtofen and his sidekick turn a harmless and defenceless car into a bombed-out heap of scrap metal with the aid of a variety of weaponry such as an axe, a chainsaw, crowbars and sledgehammer, before an angle-grinder brings on the final annihilation – all in the name of music!

Expect windshield wipers to be ripped off and played like a violin, opera extracts and delivery of comic monologues in between the musical poetry of destruction as these doyens of diesel turn motoring into unbelievable music!

Auto Auto has become an international success, touring Germany, Belgium and Holland as well as premiering at the Edinburgh Fringe 2007."


It's no wonder it's a Fringe item.
