Talking about German oldies but goodies..I always wanted to know the name of the song and/or artist you Ken used to play eons ago. The only thing I remember is that is a funny cover version of a non very popular 60's(?) American poppy, puppy love song. The song ends with the singer crying. Does this sounds familiar to you Guido?

Ken, it always seems to get back to here...and you. Recently someplace totally unrelated I saw someone linked to your Beware of the Blog from several yrs. ago about how a truly ancient musical piece had its notation decrypted & matched with the words. A couple months ago I happened to be listening to a collage piece at Kill Radio, "A Leap Into The Void", that it turned out you had contributed to. You & your little station have a huge footprint.
  10:56am ScottC:

Finally! some Klingon Punk Rock!
  10:58am Torbjørn:

Hmf, not quite sure how to feel about this. This Mjolner song has quite xenophobic lyrics and probably appeal to the most tea-party-like elements of Scandinavian politics. On the other hand, I happily listened to a couple of Burzum records yesterday, and I'm not a neo-nazi quite yet. I guess playing the record with no ill intent makes it kind of like a cultural study, although understanding the lyrics brings some perspective, I guess. Will there be any Screwdriver tracks later ?

@Ken, no, and I wouldn't fault you for playing it even if you did. If I was to only play music that would stand the test of my pedantic political views, I would have to throw away most of my music. It's just a bit jarring when you're not expecting it, is all. I listen to a lot of music where people say stupid things, doesn't make me stupid (I hope). I feel it's a complicated issue.

I'm friendly with a lot of Odinists (having those sympathies myself), and "Mjolner" being the name of Thor's hammer, and knowing the political proclivities of many, though far from all, of them, the orient'n pointed out by Torbjorn above is not surprising. It would be good to get a translation of their lyrics, because it may not be stuff that I would take as xenophobic or nasty, but an expression of their northern cultural orient'n. It's complicated, and I wouldn't mind discussing it with you in e-mail if it wouldn't bore you. I'm just saying I wouldn't judge on Torbjorn's evalu'n alone; I'd want more direct info, because although his judgment I'm sure is sincere & reflective, it may reflect his own orient'n & rxn-formation as much as it does that of the content itself.

@Robert, yes, this is a bit embarrassing. I did actually mishear the lyrics a bit, and upon reviewing them, I found that I may have overstated the case somewhat. Sorry.
You know how Led Zeppelin did a few songs about Lord of the Rings and similar stuff ? I see viking metal more as a scandi version of that, as a cartoonish take on popular history.
I think the viking metal thing is quite enjoyable, really, and just to play my scandi hand here, I'm about 10 minutes away from Einherjer's home town.

Thanks, Torbjorn. I got a Google xlation at
  11:37am Torbjørn:

@Cecile, short version; yes. On the other hand, the title isn't actually "Klingon", it's "klingan", which translates to "blade" or "sword". The lyrics are about praising warriors and their actions, praising the popular understanding of vikings and viking warrior culture. It's about as AD&D as Led Zeppelin, excerpt "Like wolves over the sea they chase the northern wind" .. yeah.
  11:38am Cecile:

Cool! I'm down with that.
  11:39am Dean:

For half a second I thought this might be the Twink of Pink Fairies. Obviously not. There's a nice announcement of this Twink's upcoming release on Weirdo Music's site, where there also appears a review of Maxophone's album! WM is one of the coolest record stores I've ever seen.
  11:40am Robert:

This makes me wonder whether Roddenberry or somebody coined the name "Klingon" from such a word from a Nordic language to indicate "warlike" or "belligerent".

Track 5 Gamel: "Gamel Kamasu"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:41am Goyim in the AM:

It's a fine line with Euro folk-metal, though, isn't it? I know a fair number of Eastern European and German bands whose lyrics are mostly harmless, but whose fans probably belong on a hate crime watchlist...
Avatar 11:42am Mark S:

No that's track 6! Track 5 is "Gamel Uma Umo"

The same could be said of Trace Adkins fans

@Cecile, if you want one with a little spice to it, I would recommend Nordavind - Haavard Hedde[1].
It a juiced up version of a popular folk song, about a guy fixing to build himself a cabin and get himself a wife.
There a bridge where they do something a bit interesting, yelling out "If you ever smell the blood of a chrisitian, on the mountain, go fetch the axe. Chop them down !". Now, that might be a bit salty for many people, but they're referencing what the trolls usually say in the popular fairy tails, our version of brothers Grimm.
I love this album, it's mostly viking metal versions of classic folk tales like this, except for this one song where he uses a on old norwegian vocal technique known as a "stev".

The Wikipedia entry says Klingons were named after a Clingan who'd served in the LAPD with Roddenberry. However, Wikipedia. Also, he may have made up that story later.
  11:48am Robert:

It's like how I'm absolutely sure the Zap Branigan character in Futurama cartoons was named for Bash Branigan from "How to Murder Your Wife", but can't prove it.

the room reverb on her voice is really nice.

I have no doubt about that.

This is just Cerberus Shoal, by the way -- "Vim & Vigour" was a split ep with Alvarius B (aka Alan Bishop) on the other side.

Big Blood, Alvarius B. and Sam Shalabi did a show locally a couple weeks ago, and I planned to go...but, with great regret, did not. That's my "Shows I Didn't Make" report.

Damn ! I missed most of the show due technical difficulties. But I bet it was a good show judging from the pretty GIFs.
