Texas Bohemia German
Fresh out of Valium? This record will do just as well. A horribly compelling grab-bag of 70s jukebox hits covered by South Texas Moravian, Bohemian and German bar bands. The Ellinger Combo sound stoned out of their brains droning out the anti-hippy anthem "Okie From Muskogee". Joe Patek's Orchestra are a righteously groovefree oompah band hilariously lurching their way through Hank Williams's "Fraufein". Even more of a nightmare, Adolf Hofner. And His Pearl Wranglers transform "I'll Be With You In Apple Blossom Time" into a threat from a manic depressive. In some ways a wonderful collection, but if you identify with this music, just don't move into my neighbourhood.
