Dieter Meier – Cry For Fame 7″

dietermeier_cry_front.jpg dietermeier_cry_back.jpg

Two track punk rock blaster from the land of cheese, cuckoos clocks and one famous growler who also posted this last year. But since this is one of them that can’t be posted enough you’ll get it here too. Backed up by Fresh Color Dieter takes you on a ride that is as classic as classic can be. This gets my vote to be in the Punk Rock Museum of old classics. I’ve always wondered if there’s an intentional fuck up in the first verse by the band.

    Thanks for posting this rare masterpice of kbd punk, which has really aged with years and now makes the same thrill as they did in the 80’s. Taking into consideration the lasting character of your posting (the mentioned link issued by Erich is long dead), it will serve for many generations of punks today to recall the old adage.

    best regards and keep rolling!

  3. Such a classic! Still great even on the 500th listen … oh, and soon I will outbid you on that flipper-relaterade svenska singeln on ebay :)

    great, have been looking for this gem for quite some time.

    is everybody aware that this is Dieter Meier, mastermind of the Swiss techno pioneers “Yello”?

    I love this. Since I got it I’ve been doing a shitload of research to find out all I could on Dieter Meier and all his works. I first heard his work with Fresh Color, and loved that too. Unfortunately, I can’t find any lyrics ANYWHERE.

    can someone help me out?

    The hook has to be one of the hookiest songs ever! The bassline, oh the bassline!

    My K-mart receiver from 1902 is failing (my parents were a poorer version of Trayvon Martin’s) and I’m down to one channel. Not sure which is left/right in the audio-fag world, but the speaker on my left is the only one kicking, and, man, the first few seconds of Cry for Fame sound brilliantly shitty, which makes this single even more brilliant!

    BTW, no joke, that motherfucking Zimmerman should fry!!!! I was hoping Varg Vikernes’ girlfriend was purchasing those rifles so Varg could be a contemporary-day Jack Ruby.

  16. CleMitch says:

    I love it I love it I love it I love it I can’t get sick of this single, I’ve been trying for years…
    Oh, to hold a real copy… then I could say I have nice things.
