Trabant, Maria and Pump You Up
DVD, Southern Fried

Trabant is an Icelandic band named after an East German car that is apparently no more. The game is political satire with a high energy pop-synth backing. These two tracks do zip along pretty good with interesting breaks and changes.

The DVD features a couple of live clips of the band as well as studio cuts. There is quite a strong element of cabaret in the first track with the lead singer getting around in his y-fronts and generally extending the song for a long time. For this track you should be in a hot, sweaty room, and be a little drunk as well. There are also band still photos and bio information on the DVD.
