Marcos told me that the character this gentleman is impersonating, is a traditional folk figure. Actually he´s one of the first Portuguese cartoon characters. Marcos should know, he works in Bedeteca, Lisbon’s only comics library.
I forgot the name of the character but seeing his bare ass on the cover was an image I just couldn´t pass up….
The sad and sentimental fados might be the most well-known ones, but Sr. Peles soccer songs are definitely fados too. Compared to most German football related songs, these are in a league of its own. German football songs can be funny but I have yet to hear any, that are of this musical caliber. Now of course Domingos Pereira is a die-hard fan of the Portuguese team, but why must he insist, that the Portuguese team is better than the Brazilian one?
After funny football fado, here is funny political fado. After the Carnation Revolution of April 1974 the whole country was celebrating the end of the oldest European dictatorship and the beginning of a new era.
Ser fascista is making fun of the fascists. A beautiful song just like the other three….
My name is Andreas Michalke. I´m a cartoonist from Berlin, Germany and I like collecting records. Most of the records I find in thrift stores or at flea markets here in Berlin. I like a lot of music but I thought I`d focus on odd German records. Preferably with cartoon covers.
All my scans are high-resolution. If you double-click on them they will get much bigger.
1. I will not use material, that is already available in digital format elsewhere.
2.The artists I present are either anonymous or pseudonymous or dead or no longer active.
3. I feel that if nobody has cared to reissue a record in 50 years, it is fair to present it.
Note: Please don´t ask for re-ups. I don´t have time for that. What´s gone is gone.
