The first German song that I’m going to introduce may be a little surprising. You may not have heard of Malaria! before - formed in Berlin in 1981, it was a relatively successful experimental electronic band that even got to tour with The Birthday Party and John Cale.
“Geld” was one of their best records - this hypnotizing song not only has an addictive rhythm, but also some interesting lyrics. Some of the German words sung with such passion here draw comparisons between money and faith.
