It Dockumer Lokaeltsje - Alles Is Goed [Makkum Records 028]

Somewhat coincidentally with the untimely passing of DAF / Deutsch-Amerikanische Freundschaft singer Gabi Delgado a little earlier this year the Frisian Punk / Rock heroes of It Dockumer Lokaeltsje have released their personal DAF tribute "Alles Is Goed" via Dutch imprint Makkum Records on February 14th, 2k20 in which they're taking ten songs of a band most influential to them and making them their own, not only in terms of using the Frisian language. This said we see classics like "Der Mussolini" make a well oil-soaked, heavy and down to earth Psychedelic Blues Rock return as "De Mussolini", the German New Wave favorite "Der Räuber Und Der Prinz" a.k.a. "De Röver En De Prins" turns into a dreamy PostPunk ballad with a krautsy Blues twist whilst "Ich Und Die Wirklichkeit / Ik Yn It Echt" is as tense, intense and nerve-wrecking as the original cut, presenting even more madness in totally off rhythm drum sequences stumbling in and all over the place throughout the last minute of It Dockumer Lokaeltsje's version. Furthermore the Punk / EBM classic "Alle Gegen Alle / De Iene Tsjin De Oare" weighs in a raw, anthemic, lo-fi Punk attitude whereas the title track "Alles Ist Goed /  Alles Ist Gut" caters a well tripping and dark'ish PsychoBlues vibe for those who can take it just to pick a few cuts from this highly unsual tribute / cover album. Intredasting.
