Haujobb - Name abuse ?

category: general [glöplog]
Anyone remember the A500-group "D-Mob", which for example made the legendary swedish animation demo called "Flossy" and "Flossy 2" ;), but also loads of remix-disks, that is, commercial tunes sampled and remixed in a module ...
The name D-Mob was also a rip from a music group. I think they made house music or something like that.

pete: Right, much like KMFDM. :)

You'd have to ask a German guy what Haujobb means. AFAIK, both groups formed around the same time, maybe the music group first by a few months.

Oh, and Hornet comes from one of the early servers the archive was on (hornet.eng.ufl.edu).

the story behind daniel myers haujobb is that the word hails from the book/movie blade runner and means something like 'subspecies' (subhuman to be more precise)

phoenix, it's not really german, but kmfdm means 'keine mitleid für das mehrheit', it also sometimes varies to 'kein mehrheit für die mitleid' and other funny grammatical constructions

there's a german punk-band called Ümlaüt actually, and my gamer sources say that the game "Kiss Psycho Circus" had an "Umlaut Design" poster on the wall in one of the levels somewhere... (should take a screenshot of that)

Dalezy: surely just the german editions of Blade Runner and Do Androids Dream of Electric sheep? ;) Apparently they refer to the Replicants, basically androids, indeed considered inferior to their human counterparts.

In the English version of Blade Runner (the movie, not the book), the androids are called "skin jobs". The German translation was "haut job" it seems, resulting in the word haujobb .. somehow.

tomaes, in the interview at imr.c64.org strider says:

During an internal group meeting in Easter 1987 me and Black Shadow decided to leave WCC and make our own group. On the train back home we were looking for a name for our new group, and suddenly it came to us;

FAIRLIGHT

It was so simple... So ingenious! FairLight was also the name of a cult game on the C-64 (initially ported from the Spectrum), and also the name of the world's most powerful synthesizer company. Jean-Michel Jarre uses those for instance.

The origin of the word Haujobb is ain't no secret. The name of the subhumans in Blade Runner was "skinjob". This was translated in the German version of the movie as "Hautjob", as skin is Haut in German. The band picked this name, but dropped the t and doubled the b for a better typographical lookout. The demogroup Haujobb has actually taken their name. It's not too hard to figure, as you can guess how low was the chance to find this very same senseless word as a name.

Yep. The band Haujobb had been around since 1992 or so, the demogroup Haujobb since 1994. More coincidences: From Haujobb's first full length album from 1993 there is also a track called 'Skull Fission XXX'.

the name 'the pimp brigade' is actually stolen from a mobstergroup in Las Vegas, Nevada. They go by the name 'TPB' and pimp like crazy.. also.. The Black Lotus is stolen from a stupid magic: the gaythering card!

"the black lotus" is also shortly mentioned as a
drug in the movie "conan the barbarian". i think
the notion comes from somewhere else, perhaps
from an asian religion or the like.

coma: yey, agnostic front rocks.
i think "klf" (the dance act) stands
for "kings of low frequencies".

Let's mix up this Haujobb-soup little bit more.

In latest album by Haujobb-the-band (Vertical Theory, 2003) is a speech sample that goes like this:

"Ripley, do me a favour. Disconnect me. I could be reworked but I'd never be top of the line again.
I rather be nothing."

Makes you really wonder....

visualice: thanks, I always wondered what that sample actually said :)
