ST PAULI AFFAIRS
Courtesy of Jonny, here's an interesting compilation of German film scores.... Dedicated to our dear blog friend Herr Pauli...
Hamburg's Reeperbahn runs some 600 meters through St. Pauli's famously smut-tastic red-light district -- accordingly, the music compiled on St. Pauli Affairs is deliciously sleazy stuff; originating from the low-budget stag films produced in the district between 1967 and 1972.
Comparable to the Vampyros Lesbos comps as well as the more civic-minded German easy and sound library recordings of the same period, the disc focuses on funky, fuzzed-out instrumentals with infinitely more passion and soul than American porn soundtracks could ever muster: the bass is thick, the drums are tight and the guitars squeal more than the films' stars. Highlights include Peter Thomas' "Lesische Nummer," Barry Lippman's "Beat in Steel" and Orchester Frank Valdor's "Black Market."
