Der Tod - Untitled Demo Mp3

Imagine the VELVET UNDERGROUND getting higher than they ever did in the 60s and 70s, then having a stab at making their own "Rocky Horror Picture Show"? Beyond the imagination? Maybe the first track on this would at least give you an inkling as to what it would sound like. The second and third tracks are very much in a similar vein, very dramatic in a campy humourous way - very big, eccentrically manic and so childish it is mature beyond it's years! The last track proves them to be scorching musicians as well as clowns.
DER TOD have with these tracks established themselves as some serious nutcases who would deserve to be locked away were it not for the fascinating music they make. The most obvious comparison I could make would be to those flash-in-the-pan saints of Weird ALBERTOS Y LOS TRIOS PARANOIAS, and there's a definite BONZO DOG wackiness to the vocals, although the music is in another league (and easy to overlook with the sheer strangeness of this music). It's got more than a tad of the ALEX HARVEY Hippy feel to it. None of these comparisons are more recent than the late 70s, yet DER TOD are very definitely a 90s group.
