All I know is that one time I sat down for a beer somewhere in the north of Germany and in unison, the whole table started to drink. This was Teutonic humour. And this is Teutonic music, undeniably – a groove that the Germans* long ago made their own. Can you think of ONE American band that sounds like this? It wouldn’t surprise me if every song by Les Mort Vont Bien is a  one-note variation of the above, and all the more wonderful for it. Here. Have another song at random.
