One thought on “Zappanale (Then & Now) — Sex without Nails bros”

  1. When “Joe´s Garage Pt. 2/3” was released, there was a shop assistant in my local recordshop (here in The Fatherland), who always put on “Stick It Out” very loud when possible, which irritated the people, when they suddenly caught the germans lyrics.

    Listening to the Central Scrutinizer narrating his lines in German gives a whole new dimension to it. Not so much interested in cover bands of any kind, I didn´t know “Sex Without Nails Bros”, but watching them perform is quite enjoyable.

    Do I open up to cover bands? (Did I wrote this?) 😉
