The Westerwaves feat. Flat Joke Lisa as "Joke Lisa" @ 33:50
12 SONGS TO MASTURBATE TO
has benefitted from the collaboration with the one and only Flat Joke Lisa,
who sings and plays kazoo in FLAT JOKE PSYCHODRIVER.
Flat Joke Psychodriver is a tune about the challenges posed by primary school teachers racing cars in post-apocalyptic landscapes. Something everybody can identify with. April 15, 2023
THE GREAT NILS
deals with one of the obsessions of The Westerwaves: military penguins.
The tune Robert Smith wished he had written, but his knowledge about penguins was just insufficient.
A song about the sacrifice that brigadier penguins have to endure to ensure that Western culture survives the attack
of evil forces. Hail the Great Nils! April 15, 2023
is the alternative version of FLAT JOKE PSYCHODRIVER, and feels like driving at 300 km/h through the highways of Vogtland with the German police behind you and the plains of Eastern Germany in front of you.
A song about freedom, bad jokes, psychosis and fines.
If you hear PSYCHODRIVER three times in a row, you may lose your drivers license. April 15, 2023
RIGHT SIDE OF HISTORY is the song you were waiting for if you feel that you are surrounded by imbeciles.
This is the closest that the Westerwaves ever got to writing an epic stadium rock hit, and you will pump
your fist in the air while you listen to it.
When Bono first heard the tune, he allegedly claimed:
"Holy crap, if I had been able to write such an amazing song, Africa would be ten times richer than it is now
and climate change would not be a problem anymore".
DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE is a tune for the paranoids around us.
A mantra that you will sing to yourself everyday while brushing your teeth and getting ready to go to bed. Do you want to know what’s hiding in the rabbit hole?
The Westerwaves have answers! April 15, 2023

THE DIVINE CUP
by The Westerwaves
liner notes by Slavoj Žižek
March 20, 2021
"With The Divine Cup, The Westerwaves have created one of the most important pieces of art
of the 21st century. The album is a conceptual work that acts at the same time as an instrument of
social critique and as a transcendental element
of catharsis, in particular if you tend to like goats more than you should."
10 amazing tunes about the taliban, terror boyz,
Khomeini, Philip VII, Pierre Curie, the legendary
bootleg recording of
"Nobody cares about my Baby" and much more!
@ the COCO Bar!
† Gerard Westerwave (bass)
