I have a had a range of responses to my posting of the Heimatdamisch video. It was pointed out that the correct term is not Oompah, but rather Oberkrainer; there was a request to know what I was smoking because that particular reader wanted some too; and there were a number of enquiries as to whether I had access to any more videos featuring Conny Kreitmeier, Bavaria's answer to Elkie Brooks. Well, indeed I do.

The audio quality in the first isn't up to much, and frankly nor is the music, especially by the end. But it does show Fraulein Kreitmeier's talents to good advantage.

As does this:

I'm not sure this final one shows anyone in a positive light, despite the admirably odd time signatures and weird chords which would normally be very much to your bloggist's taste. I have no idea what she is wailing about and include it merely so we can all admire the guitarist's barnet.

    1. Good question. I had assumed that he was wearing some sort of Goth swimming hat with holes punched in for his dreadlocks, but who knows? It's not worth watching again to find out, that's for sure.

  2. I notice from the titles of the first clip that liebe Connie has suceeded where Lili Marlene didn't - she's actually got inside the Kaserne.

    1. Well spotted. I've just googled the Alte Kaserne in Landshut and it is a truly nondescript building with sadly no sign of any lamps by whose light one wait the whole night through.
