A friend of mine was studying with two of the band members in my hometown and so I came to visit a concert in 2009, shortly after they got a new drummer. Since then they have been playing concerts all over Germany. Their booking agency is Four Artists which has several popular German artists as clients, like Die Fantastischen Vier (who are the founders of Four Artists), Nena, Peter Fox and Clueso.

Phrasenmäher” is a compound of the German words “Phrase” (engl. phrase) and “mähen” (engl. to mow). They said the name comes from their habit to build the lyrics out of numerous phrases.

The lyrics are in German and I don’t know if you might like their songs if you don’t understand them. I have to admit that the lyrics are very important for their songs, because they are very funny and contain many wordplays. But as there is at least one internationally popular German band with German lyrics (Rammstein) you should give it a try.

A really cool thing they are doing is writing hilarious songs about cities they are touring, like this one about Flensburg:

Their new Single “Sympathie Ist Der Teufel” is available as a free download from their website.
