about

Nervous Germans Berlin, Germany

With its original members, this early 1980’s cult band is back in business. Only a handful of German bands from any era have managed releases in the U.K., USA and most of Europe without actually landing a hit. Nervous Germans achieved this with bravado, signing to Vertigo in Germany, releasing albums and singles on Rondolet in Britain and Shatter Records in the States. ... more

Track Name: ¡Yeah Yeah!
¡Yeah yeah !

There’s not a man alive now boy
no snow white hype
not a Celtic Anglo Saxon son
so full of fire
there ain’t a girl who walks god’s earth
no object of desire
no European female soul
got the power like you to terrify

smooth and sexy crocodile style
stirred and shaken volatile

Don’t gimme no tell me yeah yeah yeah!
hell bent it’s what I want I swear
so make a choice and say yeah yeah yeah!
no maybe baby gimme yeah yeah yeah!

We have our manifesto down
in a world that’s lost its’ grace
attracted by a darker law
in suicidal space
when the whip comes down we’re running
ooh deep underground
psychedelic sweet soulmates
who seek and shall be found

ticket to nowhere mile by mile
fast track freeze frame hold on child
Track Name: Rainbow
rainbow


You know your colours light up all my funny phases
Magenta and blue is how I feel about you
Every nuance, every shade I know you’ve been there
Paint your face a picture in the air…I fail, I fail…I’ve failed again

Cos you’re a rainbow
All the colours of the rainbow
You’re a rainbow
A shimmering rainbow

Dressed in crimson, wearing gold I know you’ve been there
Black is back but you don’t care…really, I’m pale, so pale

And you’re a rainbow
All the colours of the rainbow
You’re a rainbow
A shimmering rainbow

You know your colours shine into the darkest places
Bright yellow may choose to share the light around you
As you flow to indigo…I fade, I fade…I fade away

Cos you’re a rainbow
All the colours of the rainbow
You’re a rainbow
A shimmering rainbow
Track Name: Berlin's Burning
Berlin’s burning

Nobody, somebody, a lone body in the world tonight
In the back door, out the front door
A low spark in a hazy light
No she cries he breathes the flames ignite
Shine a light hell comes home tonight

Berlin’s burning to the sound of violins
Beemers go incendiary again
Berlin’s burning
Berlin’s burning now the party can begin

Riverside’s electrified cops fumble the emergency
In the front door out the back door
Dancing to an infernal beat
Move she screams he breathes the taste of fire
Infernal choirs shake your walls tonight

Berlin’s burning to the sound of violins
Beemers go incendiary again
Berlin’s burning
Berlin’s burning now the party can begin
