Palais Schaumburg - Telephon

This bizarre track ran smack dab into my sensibilities (as it starts in at 0:40.) With a nice dose of ironic loo-la'ing (the kind you'd expect from a muppet song) this 1981 recording delivers a juxtaposition between sugar-pop and hardcore punk. Even if you get music, just don't expect to get the lyrics, they're German.

I realized it has some semblance to more recent art rock bands, like The Horrors. I only wish I could hear more of the thrashing laid down on that high hat. Rad.
