Hubert von Goisern is more an Austrian Elio e le storie tese, I would say. EELST is an Italian rock group writing great ironic and/or surrealistic texts (just google for them). I guess the folk background makes quite easy to compare him to Bob. Moreover, the video redbear posted shows somebody who actually seems to wish a certain similarity to Bob on the stage.


No. Dylan and Goisern are another story. Goisern does alpine folk-rock at its best. "Brenna tuts guat" combines the musical and poetical spirits of many Dylan-Songs. "Hard rain", "Gates of Eden", "Desolation Row". Goisern sings: "Money does not grow on pastures and you can't eat it, but it would burn well". The refrain sounds: "If we dont cool down the heating, the roof will set on fire" - better translations appreciated! Greetings from back under.

I love the "Forever young"-Duet Mark Knopfler/Bob Dylan really. But there is an Austropop-Version of this song ...

A question that I have pondered on for many years, and one that has at times angered and frustrated me is... why do some many countries that start with the letter 'A' also end in an 'A'?

A more interesting question - to me anyway - is this.... "what was that trick you told us about ages ago about standing on one leg and falling over.... everyone tried it and everyone fell over?"

I realize this may not appear to have much to do with Australier (see wot i did then?) but they do drink a lot over there so falling over is quite the patriotic sport really.

Hahaha... I can't remember, slimtimslide, my friend... some daft flight of fancy, I dare say... still, you are correct about Orstralee-annes... they are forever falling over like demented Weeble's... but, I always put that down to something to do with gravity, you know, what with them living upside down, on the arse of the world.

Yesterday I met some lovely people from down under in Dürnstein/Wachau. They visited the old castle, were King Lionheart was imprisoned by Leopold V. By the way, the songs of a Minstrel - the famous Blondel - were very important, when it comes to free and save his majesty. But - our talking was not about Bob or Blondel or any songs, but about kangaroos of course.

Were there kangaroos in the grounds of the castle ?
