In one of the most unusual and eclectic musical team-ups in contemporary punk-rock, German outsider artist Klaus Beyer, infamous worldwide for his off-beat, lo-fi, cover versions of Beatles classics, (often utilizing the original music track), now sets his sights--and sounds--on inimitably crooning adapted German language lyrics to the punk-pop stylings of NYC's Osaka Popstar.Pressed in a physical edition limited to 1,000 7-inch EPs worldwide, the blind assortment offers a 50/50 chance at finding a 'Monkey-brown' or 'Banana-yellow' vinyl record inside.All orders at the Misfits Records Online Store, or the Osaka Popstar Online Store can specify the color of their choice, AND at a price below you'll find in stores!Also available for purchase is the ultra limited 'Monkey/Banana Mash-Up', a brown/yellow transitional vinyl blend. ONLY 100 pcs worldwide! Not sold in stores, order exclusively from the Misfits Records Online Store, or the Osaka Popstar Online Store --while supplies last!Those who find themselves quickly endeared to the cult of Klaus Beyer join a discerning fan base that includes Osaka Popstar's John Cafiero himself, and the likes of Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore.The same lo-fi techniques applied to Beyer's 13 year mission of covering the entire Beatles catalog stands true to form. Utilizing the original instrumental music beds of 'Osaka Popstar & the American Legends of Punk' (featuring guest appearances in the backing band by members of the Misfits, Ramones, Black Flag, & more), Beyer delivers an oddly appealing & wholly unusual vocal performance sure to please fans of his eccentric Beatles work, the 'Adult Swim' generation, & those with an appreciation for the truly unusual.Title track 'Shaolin Affen' even boasts a music video shot on Super 8 film by notorious cult director Jörg Buttgereit (Nekromantik, Der Todesking, Captain Berlin vs. Hitler), transforming 60-year-old Beyer into an 80's punk.
