about

Achtung Spitfire Schnell Schnell liefern mit ihrem gleichnamigen Werk ein erstklassiges Garage-Rock’n Roll Album ab, wie es sein sollte – wild, ungehobelt, immer am Anschlag, tanzbar, ohne Schnörkel. Daß es darüber hinaus mit jedem Hören noch besser wird, liegt an den vielen vielen Einflüssen, die sich in Zitaten und Details in der überraschend vielschichtigen Produktion niederschlagen. Da trifft 60s-Soul auf Postpunk und Alternative auf ungehobelten Rock’n Roll.

Track Name: Yes I Will
Watch me go hysteric now, as we start to play this bill – oh yes, I will

I will give my all to give you a good time and a thrill – yes, I will

I will do my best to move you so will not stand still – yes, I will

And if you join in I’ll blow my top, I’m all fired up – oh yes, I will

Will you dig this band now, playing, blasting out with all their skill – yes, I will

And I will be funny for you and I’ll be charming right until – Oh, yes I will

And if you join in I’ll blow my top, I’m all fired up – oh yes, I will

And if you don’t join in now I might get upset but still – yes, I will

I am all fired up about this so I’ll sure enough get my fill – oh, yes, I will

Oh, yes, I will
Track Name: Soul Is Black
When I read what Wilson Pickett said, at first I was upset. ‘White people couldn’t play no Soul’ – sounded racist, and that’s not acceptable

I let it sink in that the music was born of Gospel and the Blues and no suppression and injustice couldn’t stop those people move

Soul - Soul is Black. That’s what Wilson Pickett said and he’s right, that’s where it’s at
Soul is black – So let’s bow before the great ones, and they were all black, and that’s a fact

So it’s clear now, at least to me, that if you’re trying to imitate it, you’re missing a whole world there, so you couldn’t ever fake it

Even though there’s one or two who do it neatly, there’s no other way to bend it - Soul is black, it’s true, and you better comprehend it

Soul - Soul is Black. That’s what Wilson Pickett said and he’s right, that’s where it’s at
Soul is black – So let’s bow before the great ones, and they were all black, and that’s a fact

So all that’s left for me to do is to try and dig the groove and pick out pieces I can make my own, create my very own way to move.

I love that kind of music and though it might be the best there is it’s not the only one for me, so I’ll never claim to be what I could never be

Soul - Soul is Black. That’s what Wilson Pickett said and he’s right, that’s where it’s at
Soul is black – So let’s bow before the great ones, and they were all black, and that’s a fact
Track Name: How To Be Hot
Let me tell you what I found about the learned and their sound
‘cos the learned, they can play, ‘cos they been taught that way

Now I envy people the know how to play, And I’d love to be able to play that way

But I don’t miss nothing, walk the way I walk, don’t take directions, I’ve never been taught

Now, lessons ain’t bad, but they don’t do the trick - most of the learned, they’re just not getting it

They been taught all those lessons, but they still can’t see, just look at the fools at the pop-academy

Becaus there’s one thing that they can teach you not – and that’s how to be hot

They can teach you not. It’s what you have or haven’t got

Hey I tell you what, it’s about how to be hot

Let me tell you what I found about the learned and their sound
‘cos the learned, they can play, ‘cos they been taught that way

It’s about how to be hot
Track Name: Raise Your Hands
There’s people out there in the front row, looking yet undecided

Probably had a long day at work, they’re tired but manage to fight it

Came here to watch a show go and get a little distraction
But I swear to god it’s three times as good if you’re ready to partake in the action

Raise your hands if you wanna dance

And there’s people out there in the back of the room with their drinks held in their hands

Hey, the show’s been started, we’ve laid out the groove, it’s bout time you’re taking your chance

Raise your hands if you wanna dance
Track Name: Evil Evil Evil
People, what you’re doing to me, no logic can explain

You treat me bad, you drive me nuts, take pleasure in my pain

No human is as mean as that, you’re driving me insane

Your mama musta have grown you up like Adam raised a Cain

Evil, Evil, Evil, Evil - Evil, Evil

Most blows that I had to take, you’re the one to blame

Erased all good out of my world, just bitterness remains

Hitler, Stalin or the Pope, you’re coldblooded just the same

I’ve never seen such evilness like you have to your name

Evil, Evil, Evil, Evil - Evil, Evil

Yes we’re talking witchcraft and voodoo’s evil curse

Black magic, satan’s children, 666 or even worse

A piece of ice where the heart should be, got venom in your veins

Public menace, major threat, you should be bound in chains
Track Name: Gotta Go
See – there’s my baby, and I love her so. Look how she’s sweet and ever so smart

She don’t dig hiking, wanna walk with her and do things to our liking like talk to her

But when her hormones come – I gotta go

And she’s gorgeous, oh yes she is. Looks like and actress on the photo my mama says

Yeah, we’re a couple and I love her so

But when her hormones come – I gotta go

Of course I won’t be gone for long, but when her hormones get a hold of my baby, I gotta gotta go

I love my baby, indeed I do. All day and all night, all the way through with all of my might

Yeah, she’s my baby and that I know, but when her hormones come – I gotta go

Of course I won’t be gone for long, but when her hormones get a hold of my baby, I gotta gotta go

Wants to eat this, and then she don’t , wants to go there and then she won’t

She’s on a bad, bad temper, watch out my baby, now she’s gonna explode

So when her hormones come, I gotta go

Of course I won’t be gone for long, but when her hormones get a hold of my baby, I gotta gotta go
Track Name: Still A Fool
I was alive and well when I hit my joint out for a drink

I was minding my own business, didn’t wanna stay too long

Important stuff to be done and things to do. Yeah, I was king of my castle,

I was in control

Each aspect of my live worked out, I was about to leave and head home as I let my eyes wander round the room

And that’s when they saw you – a shining light, a miracle

I was struck in an instant, never saw it coming

But what did I know – I was such a fool

A Cupid’s taken good aim at my heart, shot right through – still a fool

All my past and my dreams have been erased by you – still a fool

I’ve run blank and there’s nothing I can do over you – still a fool

My eyes can’t see anything at all only you – still a fool

Still a fool, still a fool

My mind went blank and the world around me faded

I couldn’t move, paralyzed, just sitting staring at you

I grew hot and cold and felt panic rise as I felt the foundations of my life being swept away by this one emotion

My heart was fluttering like a moth that’s seen the light after having lived through a cold, dark and endless night

Electric current through my soul, I’m a clumsy heap of clay since I looked your way

But I never kew before, I was such a fool

A Cupid’s taken good aim at my heart, shot right through – still a fool

All my past and my dreams have been erased by you – still a fool

I’ve run blank and there’s nothing I can do over you – still a fool

My eyes can’t see anything at all only you – still a fool

You must be my Gerda - I feel like something cold is getting burned away

And I feel the meaning of word ‘eternity’, and now I want to go all the way

Because everything changed today

I can’t catch a single thought, my heart is rushing through my brain

I never even knew something like this existed

Did I have a life before this? No – the answer must be No

No – cos I was a fool, a goddamned fool before I saw you

A Cupid’s taken good aim at my heart, shot right through – still a fool

All my past and my dreams have been erased by you – still a fool

I’ve run blank and there’s nothing I can do over you – still a fool

My eyes can’t see anything at all only you – still a fool
Track Name: Right Side
On the right side of my bed theres a big round pile of blankets

In the winter time, when it’s cold outside

And as I enter, I don’t switch the light on

Try not to make a sound and quickly close the door

On the right side. She’s on the right side of me bed

I’m on the right side with her by my side

But still there’s a tiny little rustle in the pile - it moves a wee tiny bit back, forth

Rustles, then still again

I grow accustomed to the silence And then get warmed by that familiar sweet low grumbling underneath

On the right side. She’s on the right side of me bed

I’m on the bright side in this my life

And I grow accustomed to the dark and the sweetest, sweetest sight

Is my baby sleeping, dreaming pacefully in the center of that pile

Yes, she’s in the center of my life

Love her so and she is on the right side. She’s on the right side of me bed

I’m on the right side in this my life

She’s breaking my heart with that sweetness, so intense, that I can’t go sleep

I gotta lay there and watch her breathe and be happy with her on the right side of my bed

Love her so and she is on the right side. She’s on the right side of me bed

I’m on the right side in this my life
Track Name: Funky Statue
Take a stand on both of your feet, extend your hands and think of something sweet

And listen up – we’re gonna groove now, so you start going and start trembling and you best start to move

But when I say so, You gotta stand still - and do the statue

Now shake your butt a little left and right. Yeah, shake it good and shake it alright

Now move your hand, relax your stand, add your torso to the mix and make the groove complete

‘Cos when I say so, You gotta stand still - and do the statue

Yeah raise your arm, and raise your charm, shake your hips and do the monkey shakin’ twist

Do the chicken, do the rooster, do the funky hormone booster

And when I say so, You get funky - and do the statue

do the funky statue – and you can be a roman god

do the funky statue – and praying before the lord

do the funky statue – like a solid piece of bronze

do it funky – and do the statue
Track Name: World's Forgotten Bands
All you need to touch a soul is three chords and the truth, and I swear to god there’s been thousands of bands with that ability to move

Most of them never struck it big, many not even on the scene. Some were just rumours, some I knew, some I’ve even seen

Some of them were local, some were just shortlived, others just ain’t had the luck, but they sure all had the gift

And everytime you uncover such a gem you start to wonder: How come there’s so much shit on the radio when this had to go under?

So listen up, people - you need to understand, this is the song about the world’s forgotten bands. Don’ get fooled by a concept like the charts, for here is the stuff that comes straight from the heart

We’re talking bout music that comes deep down from the bottom of the souls of people that love music so much, they’ll never compromise at all

This here’s the pure stuff, just inspiration, sweat‘n ideas, and more often than not, too, these were the true pioneers

So listen up, people, you need to understand, this is the song about the world’s forgotten bands. Don’ get fooled by a concept like the charts, for here is the stuff that comes straight from the heart

I’d be proud to be counted amongst that class of bands one day, but you can’t be forgotten if you weren’t known in the first place

So if you come across such a band, you gotta spread the word, tell the world about it until most everybody’s heard

So listen up, people, you gotta give this band a hand. This is the song for the world’s forgotten bands

Can’t do it on their own, so would you help to spread the word. You gotta pass it on until-most everybody’s heard
Track Name: Me Tarzan, You Jane
Well, I’m the king of the jungle, and Tarzan’s my name, and I’m digging on this chick called Jane

I’m cool, and I’m an Hustler, but when I see that dame I just can’t seem to speak, and that’s driving me insane

As I roam through the jungle, ruling the beasts, I’m crafting out the lines that I’m gonna speak

This Jane-broad, I’m gonna make her mine, because I’m gonna conquer her with this here line:

‘Allow me to introduce myself, I’m the lord of the jungle and you must be Jane, right?’

(Jane: Remember, you’re afraid of me)

M-M-M-M-M-M-Me Tarzan, you Jane

God dammit, what on earth is happening to me? I cannot let her go like that, I gotta try again

So I’ve got me a little courage real quick, and I’m preparing a new line to get me the chick

‘How do you do, my name is Tarzan and I believe you are known as Jane?’

(Jane: Remember, you’re afraid of me)

M-M-M-M-M-M-Me Tarzan, you Jane

I’m down and I’m finished and I ain’t having fun, so you couldn’t picture my surprise as she is coming along

With the grace of an elf, she’s almost sliding towards me - her beauty must be fooling me, ‘cos I’m hearing myself speak

‘Allow me to introduce myself, I’m the lord of the jungle and you must be Jane, right?’

(Jane: Remember, you’re afraid of me)

M-M-M-M-M-M-Me Tarzan, you Jane
