master's voice

I was not high when I thought of this:

You know what would be great? If there was a Traveling Wilburys type of supergroup, but instead of featuring the likes of Tom Petty and Roy orbison, it was only made up of German-speaking one-hit wonders:

Heino
Klaus Nomi
Nina Hagen
Falco
Taco
and that 99 Luftballoons chick, Nena.

I realize Falco is Austrian and that Klaus Nomi died in 1983, but when time travel is possible, there are worse things you could do then go back to 1982 and get all these kids together at the peak of their popularity.

Blixa Bargeld could be the recording engineer. I'm not putting him in the same room as Heino- even I have my limits.
