Der Durstige Mann Himmel & Hölle LP

This band has always been a breed that is able to blend industrial noise with garage punk. Most notable here is the colored marble vinyl plus a live extremely noisy sound. Most of the stuff is slower and more experimental noise but one of the five is the best bunch of rockin’ noise lately. Not their best but OK.

Part Time Punx Ohne Ende LP

I heard the first song of this LP, and I said to myself: “Eric Hysteric.” He produced this, and the same distorted, trebly punk you remember from DER DURSTIGE MANN appears here, complete with the nice vocal choruses. Nothing on this quite equals their hilarious cover of NENA’s song, converted into a beer song — “99 Kasten Bier.”
