germany 1966: in retrospect it occurs like a schlagerbeatdisneyland (see the tag prae-kraut on this-here blog for more information) but when you lived there you could do nothing but hate it to survive. even the beatles were hated contumeliousnessly by everyone over the age of twentyfive. even jürgen wentorf, who lateron was a producer, composer and engineer for musicians like vampyros lesbos, albert mangelsdorff and birth control rode on this wave and sang a germandeutsche gemütlichkeitsschlager in the volksfestbierzelten in 1966: i won't go to liverpool!
the a-side of the single was a complete and utter crap and i put the a-side first, of course. in a very rough translation, this is what he says: "i once met beatle joe / yeah yeah yeah / who only could play with a thousand phone / yeah yeah yeah / he said: follow me to liverpool / the home of the beat / but i will stay drinking my wine / close to the beautiful german river of rhine / we won't go to liverpool / no no no / it's better to drain our bottles here / yeah yeah yeah / we do not play beat music / no no no / we only love folklike brass music / yeah yeah yeah / we do not fight and scrap / we do not break up chairs (this wahat happened ten years before at a bill haley concert) / nonono / when it gets cozily / we shall play our own kind of beat with brass and bier / we won't go to liverpool / no no no / it's better to drain our bottles here / yeah yeah yeah / we do not play beat music / no no no / we only love our folklike brass music / yeah yeah yeah" and in the end it sounds like joseph beuys chanting 'yeah yeah yeah yeah no no no no' a year or two lateron.
believe it or not: in the seventies or early eighties jürgen wentorf, the guy on the left, shoot himself in the head like he predicted 1966: all this is very strange.
