Das Trojanische Pferd
Heuriger Hengl-Haselbrunner, 2015
Ever heard of Chanson-Punk? Well, it seems like the most apt description of the music of Das Trojanische Pferd that we’ve come across. However, it is still a pity if you don’t understand the lyrics, because mastermind Hubert Weinheimer is also a gifted writer. For the jovial Heuriger-session he is joined by the great Soyka (button accordion) and Stirner (zither), David Schweighart (percussions and backing vocals), Martina Rittmannsberger (violin), Erni Ströbitzer (viola) and Simon Watscher (hurdy-gurdy). Quite some rare and traditonal instruments for an avantgarde band! As an “encore” we’ve recorded another buoyant performance by Soyka Stirner.
In Vienna winegrowing has a long tradition and so have the taverns, where they serve local wine and simple food. Some of those Heurigen have even kept the tradition of live music alive. Hengl-Haselbrunner is one of those charming old-school places, where you meet more locals than tourists, listening to some kind of Wiener Lied performance or – as in our case – to the avantgarde band Das Trojanische Pferd.
