von der Doppel-LP "So Klingt's Bei Uns. Uetzer Chöre und Musikgruppen stellen sich vor", Kerston Records 65124, 1980/81 (
Translation: From 32 years ago here are 4 local bands from Uetze, a village east of Hannover, with probably their only studio recordings, published throught Kerston Records. Why do I listen to and post stuff like this? Probably some kind of boredom with the recent music mainstream and frustration that it is so hard to get kicks from music now. I've listened to a lot of music in my lifetime and it's getting harder to discover anything that's different and exciting too. So many young bands sound like something from 10/20/30/40/50 years ago. Also you can get some kind of respect from music bloggers if you discover and post obscure music that nobody else has heard of before. If it has any quality that will be a plus but is not necessary. Therefore I have to confess there were good reasons for not including "The Shadow Boys", The Foxies and "Rock is back" by The Flyride to my radioshow in October last year (listen to them at your own risc). But this is just my opinion and maybe somebody else will like these tracks. Well some american blogs get kicks out of posting Heino-records which I totally understand but musically Heino makes me want to throw up. Finally I get a kick out of collecting local records and I've collected just a view which I will never post here because these include a lot of classical music (I've haven't seen a blog yet which concentrates on classical music), marching bands and choirs. And if somebody again will complain this ain't an accurate translation of the German words abve, well I'm doing this for fun and not to please anybody. Slide down my back!
