Christmas Time b/w You are Father Christmas. Accept it
We have waited one year long and now it's finally here. Die Christmaskameraden are ringing your bell. You are Father Christmas.
Die Christmaskameraden are Tim Berresheim and Jonathan Meese. This is their so maniest record but the first to appear on a label other than their own New Amerika.
The label with the strongest tradition in releasing Christmas 7"s is no doubt Meeuw Muzak. Not because he likes Christmas very much, but he likes to sit at home and play his releases during that day. Die Christmaskameraden is probabely an one-off project by Jonathan Meese and Tim Berresheim, both well-known visual artists from Germany. Meese has a wide fascination for anything from Wagner to Stalin, and Ezra Pound to Rasputin. On this 7" they play synth, glockenspiel and sing about father christmas and even have a sort of disco rhythm on the second side, which could be seen as the extended dance remix. 'We are father Christmas, you are father Christmas' they sing. After the RLW and Tietchens, this is certainly much more weirder and way-out then those and is a most curious record indeed. Play this for your family on boxing day and disapproval will be your share. -Frans de Waard, Vital Weekly-
