The German Correspondent Returns


At the beginning of the 1980s, our local pub put out a call for tenders looking for footballers who would like to play for the pub in amateur tournaments. Me and a few friends signed up and played for the next few years. Many of us had played for our home club as youth players up until last year, but never made it into the first team. Despite this, we made a very good name for ourselves in many tournaments and often beat even better teams. Since we finished our active careers, we've been meeting up every month for a few beers and talking about this and that. Last time we asked ourselves which German band has the worst band name. The first band that came to mind was a band from Cologne called the Bar Sluts but finally we agreed that The Dead Crack Whores In The Trunk were the one. It is a band from Berlin playing pop-punk/ElectroClash. One of my mates ripped their first record and sent it to us to make ourself an opion about their music. After all I have to say that there is  only one song that should be remembered. Ich Und Mein Pony is a pop-punk song and a video inspired by the Beastie Boys. Not a great song in musical history but a forgotten gem in German grlll-riot.

I stuck with it.........but can't say that I enjoyed or liked it. Kept waiting for some sort of twist in the video.
