DIANA, Ich hab Lust

Fuck ebay. I love flea-markets. There is a little flea-market down the street from where I live taking place every Saturday. This time I had the idea to document some of my finds and got my friend and fellow collector Frank to take photos. It was raining a bit but for these kind of things that`s always good. Bad weather means less competition from other collectors. In the past I`ve found great records when it was really hot in the summer or when it was freezing in the winter. But this market is rather small anyway and I never go there early. The kind of records I`m looking for always get left behind by “serious” collectors. This was especially apparent this time.

This record was only 50 cents and didn`t look like anything special. The sleeve doesn`t reveal much of what sort of music is on it. That`s why all the collectors that had combed over everything had left it there. I picked it because I didn`t know the artist. And also because Diana looked like a transvestite and the title “Ich hab Lust” ( I`m lustful/horny ) sounded interesting.

This is a great record. Probably the filthiest record on the whole market and a real surprise when Frank, my girlfriend and I listened to it when we got home. It`s outright pornographic but the fact that Diana is a transvestite and the up-beat pop music save it from making it unbearable. It`s really funny because she is singing about fucking and dicks but the music and her voice is just so nice.

Nothing found on the Internet about Diana. I would think it is a private pressing from the late 70s to the early 80s. But that`s just a guess…

(Ein kleiner, von mir auf deutsch geschriebener Text über Diana, erschien am 20. August 2009 in der Wochenzeitung Jungle World.

Im Internet zu lesen ist er hier.)

    What a mind-blowing record. I never listened to some comparable stuff. The lyrics are very funny.

    Ist großartig, nicht wahr?! Und dabei kann ich immer noch rein gar nichts über DIANA in Erfahrung bringen.

    Allerdings habe ich in der neuesten Ausgabe der Jungle World noch mal über DIANA geschrieben, und auch noch mal den kompletten Text aufgeschrieben:

    Gerade wurde dein Sammlergenius bei ByteFM an Hand genau dieses Stückes “Diana – Ich hab Lust” gelobt. Und nun kann ich es zur allgemeinen Erheiterung leider gar nicht noch einmal anhören. Das ist schade. Die Platte ist zerbrochen, doch ich hoffe die Festplatte ist es nicht. Ich würde mich sehr freuen, wenn du es mir und deinen anderen Lesern noch einmal zur Verfügung stellst. Danke, Andreas!
