Die Laumäckse – Jazz geht’s los


“Die Laumäckse” was a school band from the small german town named Koblenz. I picked this album up at a local flea market. Although I had never heard of the record I gave it a try as one of the cover versions they do on there is a interpretation of a Mombasa song (German afro-funk band). Therefore I already felt like it could be a promising pick. A first impression which wasn’t disappointed. The record is a mixture of all varieties of jazz.

The outstanding tracks though are the ones where the schoolboys get funky, mostly on self composed tunes such as the incredible “Ottientalisch”, or “Dear Simone” performed by “Die Laumäckse II” the younger generation of the school’s band (the liner notes say those kids were 13-15).  I just picked those three songs randomly. There are at least 3 more songs on the album that are great. Mind that this record was recorded in 1980. Usually not the best release time for funky raw jazz.

Overall easily the best German school band I’ve ever heard (even though German school bands might be a genre with not that much competition).
