EXCALIBUR, Club Twenty Eight, 1978

In this weeks heap of  bad taste and utter nonsense, a advertisement record fits right in. This Flexi-disc was made for the German  chain store company and travel agency “Neckermann” by  seminal Krautrockers Excalibur who released a Sabbath-inspired LP in 1971. It advertises for the travel offer Club 28 Reisen that was  geared towards young people.

Right now somebody is trying to sell this flexi-disc on eBay  for 50 Euros  because of those Krautrock credentials. Hopefully  nobody will fall for it.

“Club Twenty Eight” is a pretty lame Reggae-Pop song,  not nearly as entertaining as the advertisement record that  Joy Unlimited did for the Deutsche Bahn.They needed the money and this was a job that hopefully paid well.

I shouldn`t make it all sound too bad. The song is kinda catchy  and I still like  the little cartoon on the back of the sleeve with the angel and the devil dancing together.  Cute.

But don`t pay more than 50 Cents…
