Fanatics! German Music and People Singing About Germany



Fanatics! Another week, another chance to check out some great music. It's the best possible deal. In celebration of the fact that I am in Germany for the next few days at the Wacken Festival, I thought we should listen to some German music, bands playing in Germany and people singing about Germany.

I think the only band on here we have not enjoyed before would be Die Tödliche Doris. I don't have much of their stuff, some murky live cassettes from the 80's and a couple of compilation cuts. So far, what I've heard sounds cool though.

I hope you enjoyed last week's show. A lot of new stuff in that one. If you did not get a chance to check it out, hopefully you will catch up to it on archive at some point.

We will be back at it with all yall live next week.

Until then, enjoy the heat wave and STAY FANATIC!!!
