Die Beistelltische – Are You Hardcore, Enough?

Die Beistelltische is a German sextet (from Göttingen) that performs Frank Zappa’s music a cappella. In 2007, they contributed a special edit of their a capella version of ‘The Idiot Bastard Son’ to “20 Extraordinary Renditions”, that was released on Cordelia Records. Check out their hilariously funny and offbeat a capella version of ‘Billy the Mountain’ which bounces back and forth between German and English. Are you hardcore, enough?

Die Beistelltische is:

Steffen Grill (vocal)
Hannes Kaiser (vocal)
Marcus Beyer (vocal)
Christoph Winter (vocal)
Christoph Dreßler (vocal)

One thought on “Die Beistelltische – Are You Hardcore, Enough?”

  1. Hilarious indeed, these guys. They did a particularly good job in transferring the FZ original english to german. They did more than simply translating the text. My favourite part: “Aunt Jemima Maple Syrup” became “Grafschafter Goldsaft”. (For the non-german inclined: The latter is a syrup from sugar beets and is normally spread on a slice of bread and eaten for breakfast)
