The Christmas-Story of the SVW legend

Dortmund. (OK)  One of the most legendary bands ever is the SVW. In English: Swimming-Club Wetshofen, SV Waldhof-Mannheim or Saturday morning nightmare. Obstkurve-cartoonist Olli (R.i.p.) looks back into the thrilling story of this world famous band, that has left us the legendary Single „The Moon is rising“. Released in 1987 on the very well known  20.53 hr Records Label of their own. The material was found deep in the archives of the Fanzine „Günther and die Test Flight Ladies“, the former magazine of SVW. Olli was one of the editors. Re issued now with the help of Santa Claus. Here we go:


At least the SVW rehearsals were at the all legendary CEAG-factory building at Gernot!s garage. But that is another story.  Today the SVW survives via Sex Now in KATZENKÖTER, the only band supporting good minced meat. Taken from the fanzine: Günther and die Test Flight Ladies Nr. 11, 1988. At that time the SVW could travel to Berlin via the DDR to see the cup final Franzkurt against Bochum.
