Well, it depends which Baschi you mean. The Baschi I know is an old hand in the Swiss pop scence and plays in Bashi and the ing Beautiful, a pretty good glam-pop/rock combo. He looks a bit like a younger version of Keith Richards and Mick Jagger in one..I like him.

There seems to be an upstart that goes by the same name, whom I don't know. Some young pretty boy, who looks kind of like that Gyllenhall fella.

The bottom line is: Did you see a guy who looks like a coke head or a gay cowboy?

Some good has come from this thread. I learnt that "Baschi" is Swiss German short for Sebastian.

Swiss "star" = small fish in a tiny pond

Re: Baschi!!! [apparently some Swiss pop "star" has been "spotted"]

SF1 had a two part "series" on him last month. In the first part, he took his Icelandic girlfriend to Iceland, and met her family. He even ate "sviğ" (sheeps head). The guy is pretty cool, and his music is not bad either, and yes, he is a "pop star" celebrety.

Well, to be honest, I wouldn't consider him as being a star/celebrity. There are just too many people (even Swiss) that do not know him. And anyway, usually Swiss singers don't really go a long way. Especially the ones that were casted by a poorly forged show like 'Music Star' is.

lol He knows me but I don't know him!

He used to work (or still does) in Roxy Records, Basel & said hello to me once a few years ago when I was in there. I didn't have a clue who he was though he spoke English to me.

To be honest the difference between a 'music star' or a pop star (one that made it on their own) is virtually nothing here in terms of quality. Both are like all Swiss music except traditional, absolutely awful!

Re: Baschi!!! [apparently some Swiss pop "star" has been "spotted"]

He did the unofficial swiss song for the World Cup, and he is now re-recording it for the official Swiss European Cup song.

Baschi - "Bring en Hei"

The song is excellent, and is probably the best footie song since 3 lions.


He also caused a massive scandal by singing a sacrilegious song called "Wenn Gott das Wüsst".... essentially "If God knew about...". It was all over the papers a few months ago. He has since apologised for the song, but not before he made a small fortune from the resulting hype.

Like 3 lions it's a crap song All these "coming home" and "Bring en Hei" type of songs are sung by countries that know that the cup ain't ever coming home

Some more shit ones to go with it-

New Order - World in Motion
Black Grape - England's Irie
Collapsed Lung - Eat My Goal
England United - How Does It Feel?
Fat Les - Vindaloo
Fat Les 2002 - Jerusalem
Ant and Dec - On The Ball

You don't have to write the above to prove you're an idiot, you could just keep it to yourself.

Someone takes their football and nationalistic crap too seriously I see You are entitled to your opinion that it's an excellent song so why am I not entitled to my opinion that it's a crap song?

Am I entitled to my opinion too, if so: it's a crap song, by a crap singer for an even crappier football team!

Yeah, along with the rest Swiss "superstar" DJs.

The only one I could say is worthy the title is Deetron but yet he's so low-key.
