, this is "the one that has the quaint mariachi
guys doing the Kraftwerk
songs." The music can be described in much more complex terms (the wry post-modern juxtaposition of the uberminimalist kraut electrobeats and tunes with the ain't-nuthin'-more-fun-and-sensual latin dance steps fully fleshed out, perhaps completely on the other side of the dance spectrum from what Kraftwerk originally intended)
but to the average listener (scratch that - the above-average listener who actually manages to figure out why
these tunes sound so vaguely familiar yet irrevocably recontextualized) the gloss is as far into the goofy (yet delivered with a complete straight face) prank-music as they need get.
Distributed by Emperor Norton, the track listing (and style of each cover) follows:
The album's name is Spanish for "The German Dance."
