BERNHARD FRANK, Eingeladen, 1983

eingeladen-front-3Happy Easter everyone! It´s springtime and finally Berlin is nice and sunny. Too bad I have to stay in all the time to work but I´m not complaining. It did not leave too much time to work on this blog though and I hope I´ll do better this month. So far it doesn´t look like it.


Found this 45 in a record store for 1 Euro a couple of weeks ago. It´s a little embarrassing but the fact that I bought it tells a lot about me.  Apart from the much saner image that I might have of myself,  I really do seem to be one of those “completist” collectors. I would buy any record Bernhard Frank made, even if it was really, really bad.

And this is bad. Oh man, Bernhard Frank, what did you think?!! This is a long way from his cool stuff. Then again I really like this record too. Non-German speaking people might miss some of the meaning, but there are some pretty funny lines in Eingeladen (Invited to the party of Dieter and Susi). The b-side Mit anderen Worten ( In other words) is pretty standard German Schlager fare but I still feel that Bernhard Frank can do no wrong. Bernhard Frank only wrote good songs, even if they were bad.

The local Berlin Hansa label was founded in 1964 by Christian Bruhn and the sons of  Will Meisel Thomas and Peter Meisel. In 1973 they started a sub-label to promote artists and music that were a little more off-the-beaten-path than their mainstream material: der andere song (The other song).


The sleeve was designed by popular cartoonist Arne (Arne Leihberg, 1912- 1988), longtime contributer to the biggest Berlin newspaper.

Eingeladen is bad,  but good bad. Simply very, very catchy, so beware: listen at your own risk. You´ll have a hard time getting the song  out of your ears again…

    Hualp… Nurse me brain ‘urts!!! Aber war ja klar: wenn du so lange im Geschäft bleibst, dann kriegt selbiges dich irgendwann klein… Irgendwie schade, dass der Punk an Onkel Bernhard so spurlos vorbeigegangen ist, aber wer weiß? bisher sind ja noch keine Spät-70er Aufnahmen aufgetaucht. Plastik Bernhard ” Diese Plane ist für mich”, oder so. Gabs da nicht mal was…? (Ich bin kein Opportunist, sagte das Chamäleon. Das ist alles gen-bedingt.) Unbedingt!!! Wenn ich bloß drauf käme, an wen mich der maskierte Schleimbeutel auf dem Cover erinnert… Irgendwo schon mal gesehen…
