Funky Friday - Schläger Top


For today's rummage around der Welt of Germanic shenanigans and Teutonic rockers , we won’t be rooting through the well documented and commendable end of sweaty basements and bierkellers - kindergartens to the sixties beat boomers. Or the Vorsprung durch Technik of Kraftwerk, Can and Neu! Not even a peep at one of the finest live music shows ever Beat Club/Music Laden - why did this TOTP meets OGWT format always draw out such punchy performances from the rock aristocracy of Bowie, Roxy Music, T.Rex, Tina Turner and umm The Sweet.

Nein! Friday's kitsch and kooky doings are a vier-way variation on the frothy pop option known as Schläger. Now - Mach Schau!

Les Humphries Singers - Mexico



The Les Humphries Singers look like this

Hase Cäsar - Eine Kleine Hasenmusik



Hase Cäsar - looks like this

Hugo Strasser - Paranoid



Above is Hugo from Tuesday's post - below a variant on Paranoid from Cindy und Bert

If you haven't yet, have a peep at the In-KrautI albums ISB. Wall-to-wall Wunderbar..

Thought this may be up your Straße FC. And the Les Humphries single - I grabbed for a snip. 50p at last year's folk festival

Cindy und Bert (und dog)- priceless! We've got some German friends, so I must make some C&B enquiries.

Piley said...

Shoulda been "Järger Läger" surely??!

Mondo said...

Some funny ol' frugging afoot isn't there John - wouldn't be surprised to find Cindy's a bloke in drag and Bert vice versa.

PS can you ask if they've got a copy of Hugo Strasse's Rocket/Band On The Run/Devil Gate Drive medley? Buzzed to hear it..

Bloody hell forgotten about that quality brand P, £1.99 for two litres or summat wasn't it
