DIE SCHOCK-KINGS, Das war die Lady Chatterley, 1962

By today´s standards the Schock-Kings are not the least bit shocking. “Lady Chatterley” is reducing the famous literary original to a tale of female desire. The flip “Adele” , is a little more raunchy, leaving it to the listener to fill in words like: “dicks”, “cunt”, “fucking”  and “shit”(?). All of this accompanied by the most awul Oom-pah-music imaginable. As I´ve written before, risqué Oompah-music was very popular in Germany in the 1960´s. There were hundreds of groups playing and recording this thinly veiled, insinuating party-music.

The small Carina label from Frankfurt mostly produced German Schlager and “Stimmungsmusik” but also the long-running rock´n´roll group “Fats and his Cats”.
