Guardian Angel

Song (instrumental) composed and produced by : André C. Kalipke

André : My mother, who I shared a flat with, came home from the doctor one day in the autumn of 1992 and told me of a dire diagnosis and the fact that she may not have much longer to live. Even though my mother was not a "good mother", I was deeply moved by possibly losing her in the near future and shortly afterwards "Guardian Angel" was written, in which a great deal of my emotions at the time are reflected. There is also a fast-paced part in the second half, which is a kind of "nightmare set to music". My mother (currently still among the living) does not know of the song's existence.

Sean : André played this track for me in 10/92. I actually came up with a concept for the song - a sort of half spoken-word, half rap in the verses rising to something a touch more dramatic in the refrains before dying down to the recital of a prayer, which is interrupted in the middle by the aggressive, very fast-paced part of the song (a sort of f-off to negativity) before the prayer is finished at the end. To me, "Guardian Angel" was about my best friend/flatmate who had died two months earlier. Not wanting to seem like I was hijacking André's song, I didn't develop the idea into any actual lyrics.
