39 Clocks

Bildergebnis für 39 clocks

Back from the festival in Mannheim with burning feet and too less sleep but filled with lots of new experiences. I have to admit that a lot of bands were inspired by Velvet Underground and making their very own sound. Nevertheless they name this band as a main inspiration. This brings me back to a German band from the early 80's that was influenced by the Velvets. They didn't made it great but there were a few records back in the early 80's that I listened often to. 39 Clocks are named as the German Velvets but this ain't true. They based their songs on the weird sound of the Velvets and tried to make their very unique sound of it. Sadly they are forgotten during the last decades but their sound is still fresh and and the hight of the times when they released it. Something weird and wonderful I used to listen to at that time.

Enjoy.

That's interesting, Walter: I never knew they were German!

Not only did I not know they were German, I didn't know them at all. Thanks for the introduction, Walter. Going to spend some time with these songs.
