LES PECHEURS, The House Of The Rising Sun, 1972

I bought this Swiss EP in Zurich in the past summer. The record commemorates the International Jesus Festival Of Music held in Lenzburg, Easter 1972. The pop-art-meets-political-collage sleeve caught my eye, but I couldn´t listen to the record in the thrift store. So I had to take a chance. I was expecting the music to be somewhat dry and unfortunately most of these songs actually are, so I didn´t record them. However, the song House Of The Rising Sun by Les Pêcheurs (the fishermen), with lyrics changed to  Oh Jesus Christus, Gottes Sohn, is quite charming.

If you enjoy this song, you might like to go over to  Ostberlin Beatet Besseres and listen to a German school choir singing House Of The Rising Sun with very funny German accents here.

    Christ on bike! Was für ein Fund! Ich liebe dieses Zeug, und das hier ist ja wohl der größte Plombenzieher seit “Salz sollt ihr sein” von CT Plus 4 auf einer der letzten Prae-Krauts. Meine Fräse… I’m dancing at the ceiling, drowning in my own tears. Santo subito! Thanks, The Lolly Pope.
