Eigenheim (Homestead)

Bildergebnis für heino

Listening to new sounds in Germany I think a lot of new bands are looking backwards to the sound of the early 80's. Now a very new band appeared on the scene called Black Heino. On the one hand you should know that Heino is a German singer living in the tradition of German folk music. I grown up with him and his songs that was sometimes sung during our black decade 80 years ago. He is a guy with fair hair wearing sunglasses because of his debility of sight. In my younger days he was the one we won't listen to because he stood for something we thought we left behind (that nowadays he covers English songs doesn't make it better).

Black Heino is a band who is deep-rooted in the early 60's sound of The Who and The Kinks with riffs they did, added with a tambourine and a singer shouting out the title like Jello Biafra did years ago. They were based in German 80's Hamburger Schule and agit-prop like Ton, Steine, Scherben one of the first political bands in the late 60's. Dirk will understand the lyrics and I'm looking forward for his comment. If the album holds what this song promises it will become one best this year.

This is an opportune moment to dig out that favourite phrase of mine - what a splendid racket! Great stuff Walter.
