Weltschmerz blog-corner needs a couple of NDW related pop hits from our ex governess Austria. Glittering synth sounds.
For starters, few tracks for obscurists into original Austrian punk rock then new wave then synth wave. Or pop for pure people as they (Chuzpe) said. I like it, of course.
Chuzpe – (They Can’t Beat) The Beat (1979)
(They Can’t Beat) The Beat
I Loved the Sixties
One step back – Chuzpe ’78:
Various Artists – Wiener Blutrausch (1979)
Panik / Alanig
Terror in Klein-Babylon
Two steps forward – Chuzpe ’81:
Charlie Chan (1981)
And here are the super-hits for common people. Decadent Viennese hip-hop synth-pop.
Falco – Der Kommissar (1982)
Junge Roemer (1984)
Vienna Calling (1985)
It’s 1985 again. Just for one day. Verschwende deine Jugend.
A calm voice in the eye of the (emotional) storm. Witty William rides on.
Devolution of American r’n’r dreamz in the heart of Zagreb: The Babies, Welcomin’ Committee in Flames, Dykemann Family, Modern Delusion… Two decades on the scene or in the garage.
Neon Lies sings and dances in Močvara tonight. Social distancing measures implemented.
Who needs love when you have neon lies.
By day the bat is cousin to the mouse.
He likes the attic of an aging house.
His fingers make a hat about his head.
His pulse beat is so slow we think him dead.
He loops in crazy figures half the night
Among the trees that face the corner light.
But when he brushes up against a screen,
We are afraid of what our eyes have seen:
For something is amiss or out of place
When mice with wings can wear a human face.
Sly & The Family Drone
Who likes complications? Who needs complications? Pick “Complications” instead. Third time in a row a record by E enters into “Albums of the Year” category, not only listened to this year but appreciated too.

Moor Jewelry is a collaboration between Moor Mother and Mental Jewelry from Philadelphia, USA. They put out
True Opera, one of my favorite albums from this year, as a bloody cassette release only through Don Giovanni Records. Sold out twice. Overpriced on the (discogs) market right now.
Good songs and great heretic punk sound. Live wire/body electric sound. It deserves all formats. Plug yourself in.
Always In Love
Groove is in my heart. Dojo rules.
