“One day in the late 70s Iggy Pop visited an exhibition in café Anderen Ufer. A young Berlin artist had displayed a white sheet with sperm. He and Iggy started talking. Iggy asked the skinny artist for his name. "Blixa Bargeld”, he answered. “Oh”, said Iggy, “that sounds like washing powder, but it’s a good name.” And he wished him all the best. Thus Christian Emmerich became Blixa Bargeld.“
