And of course back in the 70s, Switzerland's claim to fame: every European disco diva would dance to Swiss singer Patrick Juvet "ou sont les femmes?". WARNING! This is real, authentic European trash, people with a sensitive heart condition, please do not watch!

What about Lunik? They are Swiss I think from Zurich. Have somebody heard of them? They sound pretty good, kinda sad sometimes but I like them.

I love Lunik..

And Mich Gerber is another Swiss musician whom I like his music. Here is a video feat. Jäel from Lunik:

Re: Swiss music

For the Rock'n Rollers out there:
There's some cool bands on The Voodoo Rhytm-label based in Bern
Fxl: Reverend Beatman with/without The Monsters, Roy and the Devil's Motorcycle and Urban Junior. Cult bands, maybe not typical swiss music, but these bands regularly tour all over Europe and have fans all over. And lets not forget about Young Gods...

Re: Swiss music

That's brilliant, thanks! And Olygirl, you're right, having just come back from 4 days near Interlaken, they do play rather a lot of Volksmusik (too much for my liking!)

Re: Swiss music

that was a very funny video, especially watching the people's reaction at the start, from shock horror to slight bemusement at the end. Can't understand the words, were they rude?

No, not rude. But clearly a bit fast for the clientele sitting around there. Very humourous, and I would say the audience was not just "slghtly" bemused but very much amused. At least when they all got what the parody was all about

Re: Swiss music

You gotta mention Göla. His teaming up with the Bellamy Brothers (from America) have given us fabulous hits.

Bellamy Bros (adopted Swiss by now) have brought the yodeling open of "I Must be in Switzerland" as a classic. Even has cowbells.

And the tragic Gotthard. LOVE his One Life, One Soul and the haunting "Follow Me." Gorgeous!

Re: Swiss music

Remember to keep your posts coming, and I was wondering EF "masters" if you could create a "Swiss music" category, to tidy things up a little bit? Thank you.

Re: Swiss music

A site listing bands from Zurich. On the site you can listen to their music for free (streaming) and can read their biographies too.

Definitiv Zuerich

Some songs on there are better than others...

Re: Swiss music

Has anyone heard of Stimmhorn? I had an album I found disappointing (too electronic for me), but I've heard other albums were brilliant and perhaps a tad more traditional, which would suit me best. Any recommendation?

Also, do you know if Sonnalp's CDs can be purchased in High Street retailers?

Re: Swiss music

Music is solid on your boyfriend's first two tracks. I am little lost on the direction of the vocals though.

Re: Swiss music

Hi!

I've recently discovered a new swiss singer: Adrian Stern. I think he sounds like country, I suggest to listen to "Amerika". The lyrics are in Schwiizertüütsch. (At least I think so)
I like him very much!

There's also another interesting singer in Switzerland, even if she sings in italian (also because she has italian nationality): Mina. She lives in Lugano and is one of the most important female singer in Italy, Germany and South America.

;-)

Re: Swiss music

Anyone know The Birthday Girls? I haven't heard much of their work, but the guitarist seems like a great guy.

Re: Swiss music

Pitiful English, but good keyboards from these early Genesis or Marillion wannabes:

(Actually just speed up to 27:26 for the keyboard solo)
