I played this for a well known New York radio DJ whilst he was sat on my couch, having his first mushroom experience a month or so ago, dribbling and talking shit about records. He claimed that he recognized it as it was going to be on a big deal upcoming mixtape by some label boss whose name I was not cool enough to recognize or remember. So I decided to post it.
Of course if you grew up in Germany in the late seventies and early eighties you would probably recognize this from the radio, as it was the one hit by Düsseldorf post punk band Fehlfarben.
Looking back in retrospect apparently they have always been irritated that this single was their only crossover success, as the funk styling with that distinctive disco 'booooo' sound was supposed to be a funny, ironic gimick..seeing as they are punk as fuck etc. Just goes to show.
