Anne: Just like Eddie, Vera: Sweets For My Sweets & It`s all a Game, Marlis: Twist and Shout.

I bet they played the hell out of those few records they had. No downloading for a mp3-party back then!

AUKTION/DESTRUKTION!

auktion-destruktion-flyerTomorrow,  Frank and I are going to play, auction and (hopefully) destroy some records again at the 4th auction/destruction happening at the Kollage in Kreuzberg. Performing at around 9:30 will be Eli Salzman from Santa Cruz, California. Come early and listen to Eli.

Or come and look into my box of records so you`ll know what will be auctioned later. I recently bought a whole box (about 400) of  hit records from the 70`s and 80`s at a thrift store in my street. Some great stuff but also real garbage. I`m looking forward to play, sell or destroy some of them next Friday. Frank just got back from traveling over a month in the US. He promised to sell some of the 45`s of that stack of records that he bought in Memphis and Philadelphia. Hope to see you!

If you can read German you can see a new one-page comic about Auktion/Destruktion that will appear in Ox-Magazine next week, on my other site Monovision.


DEBBIE NEON, Psycho Killer, 1979

I was never a big fan of the Talking Heads. They always seemed to be  a little too pretentious and serious. So this silly  cover version of their classic new wave song doesn´t sound so bad to my ears. This record is a good example of  the sell-out of new wave, but then wasn´t new wave  already the sell-out of punk?

Either way I like this German disco version of “Psycho Killer”. It´s still a weird song and Debbie Neon is trying her best to sound reasonably crazy…

THE PINUPS, Wild Thing, 1980

pinups-front1pinups-backpinups-infopinups-labelThe Pinups apparently  were from California, but their records (two singles and a LP) were produced in Germany. They had a minor hit with their first single “New Wave Lover”. On the info sheet it states that these songs were featured on the soundtrack to the film “New Wave Lover”to be released in Germany February 15, 1981.

 

In my search for this film on the Internet, I came across a small review of the German comedy “Pinups und ein heisser Typ”( Pinups and a hot guy) here and two excerpts of the film on youtube. Reading in the comments section I learned that the lead singer June La Vonne had put them there and that today she is living in Hamburg.

This is the Pinups performing “New Wave Lover” in the film “Pinups und ein heisser Typ”:

The Pinups  performing in the hilarious German Teen-comedy “Pinups und ein heisser Typ” with great over-dubbed dialogue in German. I`d really like to see this film in full:

The Pinups performing “New Wave Lover” in the German TV-show Musikladen October 9, 1980:

Of course “New Wave Lover” was an attempt by some German Disco producers to cash-in on the “New Wave”, but as plastic and fabricated as it might be, I like it because it is so refreshingly silly.

“Wild Thing” on the other hand, is a pretty indestructible Rock`n`Roll classic that survives even this full-on Disco treatment by the Pinups. It is a pretty silly song to begin with…
