Ok, after these necessary warnings we can proceed. Last Saturday, Hamburg Germany. The event - Schlagermove 2012. The organisers claimed 500.000 people watching, the police said it were only 300.000.
'Schlager' (direct translation - hits) were a German phenomenon during the 60th and 70th. At that time only few people understood English and the cultural institutions still tried to protect the youth from negative influences of the UK/US pop culture. Schlager were songs with German texts, most of them extremely stupid and light hearted. Easy to listen to and easier to forget. The thing died and nobody did care moan.
Some years ago people who were not even born during this period discovered these songs and made techno versions of some and later on even started to air some of the best sing along versions in clubs or in public. This Schlagermove movement is the end of the revival - i hope. Strange people gather in strange clothes and drive through cities on big trucks blasting strange music - perhaps the main element is drinking lots of beer
After the move they normally go to clubs or festival areas and go on partying. Logically this Hamburg move started in a wide open area, took a tour to the tourist harbour and back to St.Pauli with its clubs...
Enough text - get a beer, let's party
45 of these monster trucks packed with people and music gear..
Come on ladies, you can do better...
Let the guards lift of the barriers we don't want no accidents except of a few losses of hearing..
Lets check the gear - hats checked!
Glasses - no sorry, wrong model, this looks more like carnival
This is perfect!
Shirt - very good (Where do they get all this stuff from?)
Hair - excellent! In the 60th everybody had it this way :)
