Krisma - I Must Know Your Name

"krisma" or original "chrisma" where formed by maurizio arcier and his wife christa moser.
"nothing to do with the dog"(1983) is there third album of "krisma" and its a good mix of synthpop and and obscure wave.
the song "i must know your name" reminds me to the early stuff of "peaches".
no pop-just a simple,cold beat and a cool,smooth voice.

Faust - Baby

the album "munich & elsewhere" was released in 1986 ,all tracks are recorded back in 1973-1975.

i have a preference for progressive rock from the 70s with german lyrics. the problem is..most of them are about political stuff. the song "baby" is different.
the refrain goes like this:

aaa baby
are you coming to the cinema with me?
aaa baby
And after that we'll go for a meal
And after that we'll go dancing
And after that we'll go screwing


this is real life!

Peter Jacobi - Niederwammerl Superdrummerl

"i could cry vor lauta bluus" is an blues/rock/folk album from 1974, all songs are with bavarian-accent.
most of the songs are about political stuff, but in a funny way.
for me the only realy great song is the last one - the "niederwammerl", its about a drummer and his work.
and who plays the drums for this song?
.....the one and only " klaus weiss" !!!!

長谷川きよし - いにしえ坂

back in 1972 kiyoshi hasegawa was the first japanese artist on vertigo-japan. "inishizaka" was his first album and its a great mix of traditional japanese music,folk,rock and psychedelic.
all songs are writen in japanese letters on the back-cover, so i dont know the name of the song i chose.

anyway,on "ハイウェイ" ,kiyoshi plays eastern psych with megaphone vocals, virtuoso violin and gongs. a strange winding melody is a bonus, too!

Jacques Dutronc & Bob Telden

as you see on the photos, jaques knows how to make fun about himself and also about his generation and society.
this is jaques´ third album, also the third one without an album-titel - pleasantly!
Back in the 60s&70s he was one of the BIG in french music business and is still married with the chanson star francoise hardy.

on the album you will find one of his biggest hits "il est cinq heures, paris séveille".
1969, one year later, bob telden has done a german cover version of this catchy song and named it "berlin erwacht".

ok..i dont like "il est cinq heures, paris séveille" that much, so i chose another one.
"les rois de la reforme" starts with hard drums and a soft singing jaques dutronc ..what a beginning !! you will love it!

especially for those of you, who understand german.
i have to say i got a preference for german cover-songs!
so here it is...
