HALLELUJAH CHILDREN BERLIN, Helft uns die Bäume schützen, 1979Posted: January 7, 2010
The Kaskade label from Berlin was a variety label that put out 20 45´s in as many years, probably in very small quantities. I have only a hand-full of them and I bet most of the ones I´m missing are garbage but I´ll still be on the lookout when I see the label.
Stupid collector that I am.
The label was why I picked up this record a while back in a local thrift store for 50 cents. Also “Beat-Song” sounded interesting. But in 1979? Then again Helft uns die Bäume schützen (Help us protect the trees) is exactely that: The Hallelujah Children Berlin are a choir accompanied by drums and electric guitars.
Released in support of the Schutzgemeinschaft Deutscher Wald (German Accociation for the Protection of the Forests) with some really cool hysterical lyrics : Stop killing the trees… progress is making people stupid… man´s program is insidious… everyone adopt a tree… use wind and water and solar energy…
