Beethoven's revenge

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Beethoven's Revenge - Bonn Sampler is a 1988 by Bönnsche Tön published Sampler , on which various punk bands from Bonn are represented.

History of origin

In 1987, several punks from Bonn, including members of various bands, founded the Bönnsche Tön label , whose first LP release was Beethoven's revenge . A total of eight bands from Bonn and the surrounding area are represented, including Molotow Soda , Geistige Verunigung , Rabatz , FFF and Die Bonner Hartchöre . The latter was a group of about thirty Bonn punks who appeared (with a changing line-up) with Molotow Soda as an accompanying band and who contributed the songs "Punx" and "Kaiserplatzlied" to the sampler. The comic artist Karsten Hotter, who is also represented on the record with his band Vendetta, was responsible for the cover artwork - a poop Ludwig van Beethoven . The back cover adorns a group photo taken in front of the Beethoven monument on Bonn's Münsterplatz .

“That's when I did the cover. [From] my band Vendetta there are three songs on it, all three of which are bad to the shame of others. ”(KARSTEN HOTTER, Punk in Bonn - The Film Vol. I , 2012)
