KNUT KIESEWETTER, Ich danke euch Reaktionären, 1974

Knut Kiesewetter was a unusually versatile artist who recorded jazz, gospel, schlager, singer-songwriter stuff, even comedy and promotional songs. He also wrote a few political songs that were leftist but not dogmatic. Ich danke euch Reaktionären (Thanks, reactionaries), from the album Keiner hat mich richtig lieb, has never been reissued and is not available digitally. The lyrics are still valid after almost 50 years: “Thanks, reactionaries, you keep me on my toes. It´s time to strike back.”
