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!
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...

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

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?
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.
