Lost Chord Radio

Wunderbaum portrays the eccentric citizens of a plagued New Mexico town in this high-velocity performance fueled by renegade music group Kopna Kopna’s rock score.

Locusts, floods and various “acts of God” bring out the best and worst in this strange cast of characters in a high-velocity performance rich with poignancy, humor and emotional intensity.

“Lost Chord Radio blows through the tent at hurricane speed, opening it up more and more and exposing you to the elements. Drama with the energy of a pop concert”
Eindhovens Dagblad

“Defiant songs in which the traditional concept of stanza-chorus-stanza is consigned to the rubbish heap in favour of crossovers and angular art pop. Music, which managed to turn many a listener’s amazement into admiration”.
De Volkskrant

“The monologue by the barmaid Tess (Marleen Scholten) is also outstanding, as she tells with suppressed rage that she drinks a glass for every man who left her, made her pregnant, abused her or died.

Running through this drama, squeezing its way harshly in between, sometimes in an attractive form of bluesy harmony and sometimes entirely independently, as if we were at a spectacular pop concert, is the sound of the Kopna Kopna guitars, the hard beat of drums and howling percussion. This really is ‘the sound of the city’.”
