This is a pretty good record, the ktel ad in particular.

gut stuff. not mean themselves - wrong colors reminds me of the au pairs.

"Militürk" is probably better known as "Kebabträume". The lyrics seem to me to be pretty clearly about anti-Turkish paranoia all mixed up with Cold War paranoia.

Also bigger faux pas than mentioning the war: calling Austrians Germans!!!!

Lukas

Anybody with the Mittagspause MP3, please email it to lukas.wfmu@gmail.com, then I'll add it.

Austrians aren't Germans? Didn't they have a reunification over there recently?

Lukas

By the way, the song was originally called "Militürk", DAF changed it to "Kebabträume" for their cover version.

I once got called "depperte Piefke" whilst driving my German-tagged car around Vienna -- I had to respond "i bin ka Pieke -- so wer is hier der Depp?"

Anyway, as long as we're being pedantic, Mittagspause turned into Fehlfarben, and Gabi from DAF wrote the lyrics to the song, so if he wants to call it Kebabträume, I won't argue with him.

just some additional informations:
sehr gut kommt sehr gut was released on the LASCH-label which is a parody on Schallmauer-Schallplatten from Düsseldorf.
vielleichtors were a real band formed by some art students, they released some tracks on the compilation "Kirche der Ununterschiedlichkeit", recorded live at the Ratinger Hof, which was a famous artists and punk club in Düsseldorf.
sternhagel was also a real singer from Düsseldorf, his first single released on the Rondo-label by Franz Bielmeier of Mittagspause, he later relased some lps on CBS with the help of some members from Spliff.
siluetes 61 was a studio-project by Tom Dokupil, member of Wirtschaftswunder. he relased 2 albums with sound-collages.
lemminge was a band by Jürgen Engeler and Ralf Dörper who later had some fame with Die Krupps and Propaganda (Dr. Mabuse).
nachdenkliche wehrpflichtige is not made up but was a real band with Diedrich Diederichsen, at that time legendary music critic from Hamburg. he was also a member of Flying Klassenfeind. watch out for their cd which offers strange cover-versions.
finally i think the track by mittagspause was no fake but one of the tracks from their last studiosession which was quite desasterous. the tracks where released some 10 years later on cd. its quite rare but not really fun to listen.

good post but who was that in the "Faust performing live 1973" video?

Rich

Always loved this! I'll be posting similar NDW items here.

Mr. Lucky

I BOUGHT THE ORIGINAL LP AND STILL HAVE IT IN MY COLLECTION - WITH NO STICKER ON IT!
IN TOOK ME QUITE A BIT TO RECOGNISE THE HOAX - BUT THE AUSTRIAN ACCENT OF SEFFCHEQUE CAME THROUGH ON SOME TRACKS. IT'S PURE FUN, NOTHING SERIOUS, AND THE WHOLE THING IS PRETTY DATED, BUT NONETHELESS A CLEVER THING.
AS WITH THE COVER: BANDS LIKE KRAFTWERK AND THE-LIKE COULDN'T REALLY LET SUCH A PISS-OFF-PICTURE LET GO, RIGHT?

Anyone have an mp3 of "analphabet" by wirtschaftswunder?

Lars Theoderik

I bought a vinyl album by Sternhagel, but I don't remember the name of it. However, it does have the song, "Fahrrad Fahren" on it, which I like a lot. I bought it on line and had it shipped from Germany. I bought the "Sehr gut kommt sehr gut" album in San Francisco when it first came out. My copy does not have the warning sticker, but I assumed it was a parody from the album cover. I have another compilation from German that was just titled "Deutschland", as I recall.

I tend to think that the Residents were influenced by Der Plan instead of vice versa. "Gummitwist" by Der Plan sounds like rap or hip hip even though it is from the mid 1980s, and their song "Und Dann..." was also very influential. I tend to find German music from the 1970s and 80s to be more progressive than English or American, and I have noticed several trends that were started in Germany were picked up in England and later the U.S.
