Music: Tankard get all their beer stolen by a girl called Cerveza
Remember the German thrash explosion of the early 80s? One of our favourite bands from that era was (and indeed still is) Tankard. That’s because, unlike many of their peers, they had (and indeed still have) a sense of humour. Now Tankard have a new single out called A Girl Called Cerveza – and they’re offering it as a free download.
Track: Tankard – A Girl Called Cerveza
File under: beer drinkers and hell raisers
‘Cerveza’ sounds a pretty damn fine name for a girl to us. That’s because it’s Spanish for ‘beer’, of course.
But A Girl Called Cerveza actually turns out to be a bit of a cautionary, not to say harrowing, tale. After taking Cerveza back to his flat for a bit of hanky-panky, the subject of Tankard’s song wakes at noon the following day to find all his beer supplies have gone. True to her name, Cerveza has stolen everything!
