Goissahannes - Lieder aus einer anderen Welt


In the 1970s and 1980s there was a West German "singer-songwriter samizdat" scene: Being part of the left-wing alternative culture, releasing self-produced albums on its own or on small collectively organized labels, never ending gigs at youth centers and small festivals and always no money in the pocket... One of these artists was Johannes Christ, but everyone called him Goissahannes. He´s a lovable anarchist from thel Schwäbische Alb (Swabian Alps in English), a low mountain range in Baden-Württemberg, Germany,
 
In 1981 he released the album "Liadrige Liadr" with the wonderful track "Mooschdd aus´m Kruag" in Swabian dialect, which will be posted here in the next days. Some years later he published the album "Lieder aus einer anderen Welt", a collection of antifascist songs from the NS-concentration camps. On the album are included widely unknown songs like "Lied der Heuberger" besides more knows antifascist songs like "Partisanen von Amur" and the "Buchenwald-Lied".
 
Today, Goissahannes is still active as a musician. Together with his wife Silvia he makes emanzipatoric music for children. Maybe you want to check out www.goissahannes.de.
