Musically, there is the typical and distinctive THEE FLANDERS sound. Including intro and outro, the Potsdamneds present a total of 13 songs.
On the opening track of the record "The Days of Pearly Spencer" all Psychobilly Allstars sing together.
Furthermore, the record shows a selection of well-chosen cover songs and previously published Flanders-Songs - all freshly recorded and remixed. And the record holds many surprises such as the Intro or the ghostrack.
The vinyl version comes in a beautifully designed gatefold sleeve. Matching the title, there is a remarkable and apt layout.
Thanks to the giant poster that comes with every vinyl, you can bring the horror fun into your children's room.
A real eye-catcher from Norman FLANDERS.
Finally the best:
Profits from this edition of 300 will be donated to Animals Care e.V. Therefore, this vinyl version will only be available exclusively via www.HATEYOU.wtf.
The story so far:
Norman Flanders: "When a second lockdown was announced at the end of 2020, we wanted to be more creative and productive than during the first lockdown. So in November 2020 the drums were recorded for 3 songs. The rest of us were able to play our necessary tracks at home.
Since our current record "Neverending Story" was just in the pressing plant, we actually wanted to record a 4-track benefit EP only. But as the lockdown dragged on for more than half a year, there was enough time for more creative ideas and new opportunities opened up.
On the one hand we unexpectedly got support from the temporary 5th band member, the one and only Stefan Flanders. Currently Stefan accompanies us with his excellent guitar work and we were able to improve musically. It was probably also due to Stefan's creative input that now a whole album instead of just an EP was made.
On the other hand, since the whole world was more or less stuck at home, we came up with the idea of bringing various guest musicians on board. So we started looking for some fellows and over time there were about 20 comrades-in-arms.
Many of these musicians were one reason why we started making music in the first place 25 years ago. They were role models and inspiration for us.
From Russia, Australia, America, England, Holland, Hungary - all over the world - friends have supported us in this project. In the end, a varied album was created, which is a great birthday present for our band's 25th anniversary."
The cover version is staged brilliantly... Quaster in duet with Norman, plus sophisticated guitars, arrangements and even a specially recorded trumpet.
The affectionate recording makes this song probably the highlight and secret hit of this record.
