Music from Germany – Electric Love

Electric Love , a Kickass  Punk Group from Stuttgart /South Germany founded i think in 2008. Another gig i saw on the Mini Rock Festival in Horb this year . They have been the startup band of the second festival day and have to play in the tent also on the small stage , due to the hot wheather and to the very early time (2:00pm) there have not been a lot of visitors on the festival field – the poor ones missed this great gig of these 4 faboulous musicians – two ladies on bass and rhthm guitar and two guys on lead guitar and drums .

Here is their song – Maybe

and another picture from the gig

“Dumbass (Explicit Lyrics)” 

When you’re ready to strike, he mumbles about non-violence.
When you pinch his ear, he says it’s no cure for diarrhea.
You say you’re a mother-fucker, he claims he’s invincible.
You say you’re a mother-fucker, he claims he’s invincible.
Fuck forgiveness, tolerance be damned, to hell with manners, the low-life’s invincible.
Fuck forgiveness, tolerance be damned, to hell with manners, the low-life’s invincible.
Oh dumbass, oh such dumbass! Oh dumbass, oh such dumbass!
Oh dumbass, oh such dumbass! Oh dumbass, oh such dumbass!
Lalalalala, lalalalala Lalalalala, lalalalala
Lalalalala, lalalalala Lalalalala, lalalalala

Stand on the frontline like a dumbass, in a country that puts out like a hooker.
The field’s full of fuckers, dumbasses are everywhere.
The field’s full of fuckers, dumbasses are everywhere.
Fuck forgiveness, tolerance be damned, to hell with manners, the low-life’s invincible.
You say you’re a mother-fucker, he claims he’s invincible.
You say you’re a mother-fucker, he claims he’s invincible.
The field is full of fuckers, dumbasses are everywhere.
The field’s full of fuckers, dumbasses are everywhere.
