My association with Kettcar will always be the dis by Oma Hans "depressive Anekdoten, die keinem etwas bringen außer Geld" - "depressive anecdotes that bring nothing but money" (Kettcar was punk in an earlier incarnation but sold out ;)). Its poetic that they are competing against a Ramone doing a Louis Armstrong cover
