Rediscovered track of the month: May ’14

Die Toten Hosen, Hier Kommt Alex

This is old school German punk from 1988. When I first moved to germany in the mid nineties I was keen on learning German and there is in my mind no better way to get into a language than by listening to popular music in the native tongue. I had the privilege of seeing the band on their home turf (Duesseldorf) around ’98. This song is based on the Burgess novel ‘A Clockwork Orange’ and songs or albums based on novels usually come a cropper…not this one though…it’s driving beat and superb chorus (nothing like a good chant) really lift it.
