GÜNTER PROTT, Grobgewürfeltes

Another travesty record but a much tamer one than “Diana”. Günter Prott aka Lila ( lilac ) just recites poems. No music on this record. The piece “Grobgewürfeltes” is about the self-centered gay scene. I couldn`find out anything about the artist or when this  was recorded.

DIANA, Ich hab Lust

Fuck ebay. I love flea-markets. There is a little flea-market down the street from where I live taking place every Saturday. This time I had the idea to document some of my finds and got my friend and fellow collector Frank to take photos. It was raining a bit but for these kind of things that`s always good. Bad weather means less competition from other collectors. In the past I`ve found great records when it was really hot in the summer or when it was freezing in the winter. But this market is rather small anyway and I never go there early. The kind of records I`m looking for always get left behind by “serious” collectors. This was especially apparent this time.

This record was only 50 cents and didn`t look like anything special. The sleeve doesn`t reveal much of what sort of music is on it. That`s why all the collectors that had combed over everything had left it there. I picked it because I didn`t know the artist. And also because Diana looked like a transvestite and the title “Ich hab Lust” ( I`m lustful/horny ) sounded interesting.

This is a great record. Probably the filthiest record on the whole market and a real surprise when Frank, my girlfriend and I listened to it when we got home. It`s outright pornographic but the fact that Diana is a transvestite and the up-beat pop music save it from making it unbearable. It`s really funny because she is singing about fucking and dicks but the music and her voice is just so nice.

Nothing found on the Internet about Diana. I would think it is a private pressing from the late 70s to the early 80s. But that`s just a guess…
