HP Falkner (Attwenger) - 890 Gstanzln Editions

Ladies and gentlemen, 

we'd like to introduce you to Mr. HP Falkner from the Duo Attwenger. Since years, he and his brother are touring nationally and internationally with drums and accordion. Rhyming punk, techno, house, dub and rockabilly with Upper Austrian "gstanzln" - traditional Bavarian-Austrian mocking songs in verse. Such as: 

in the grass sits a cricket
chirping for a oneway ticket
suddenly it doesn't sing or say
head mowed away

In the original:

und a grü sitzt im gros
und pfeifft si grod wos
auf amoi is schtaad
schedl ogmaad

Together with HP we've selected 4 favorite gstanzl and printed them for limited letterpress posters and canvas editions. Besides, HP recorded 10 singles with his favorite gstanzln, also available now.
