SINGLE SSC, PLAYGROUND RELEASE:
NOVEMBER 25, 2002 REVIEW: NOVEMBER 29, 2002
quartet Tyskarna från Lund made a greatly appreciated appearance
at this year's SAMA festival, with a large dose of humour and a well rehearsed
stage show. The song "Global Fussball OK" was the track everyone
talked about afterwards and it was later successfully released as a one
"Achtung X-Mas!" is their second proper single and it has preserved
the almost parodically comic elements that is the trademark of Tyskarna
från Lund. Still, with this single, and its mentioned predecessor,
the music and production have taken huge leaps in quality since their
early demo stage. "Achtung X-Mas!" borrows, or should I perhaps
say lovingly steals, from Kraftwerk's "Metropolis", with talk-like
vocals in the verse and a catchy chorus. A nice funny tune, basically.
No need for fancy sound descriptions and pretentious journalist metaphors
Get this for Christmas and make it a merry one!
