German Punk Legends Slime are back With New Lead Singer And New Single

slime

The German Punks presents singer Tex Brasket, a former homeless Berlin street musician, in the video for their new single. A new album is on its way too.

After singer Dirk “Diggen” Jora left the band in mid-2020, the Hamburg-based punk band has announced it has a new singer. Tex Brasket is the man now holding the microphone for Slime. The new frontman, a former homeless street musician from Berlin, can be heard (and seen) in a newly released video for the single ‘Komm schon klar’.

In addition to the new single, the band has announced a new album called “Two”, which is planned for release in May. 

The band writes on their website: “After Slime and their old singer surprisingly split up last year, the end of the band seemed sealed … if it hadn’t been for the then homeless Berlin street singer Tex Brasket. Surprisingly, Slime and Tex got to know each other, and immediately started writing songs.”

“The lyrics forKomm schon klar’ comes from Tex’s pen,” the band says, “and describe his life on the street. It couldn’t be more authentic … Goosebumps guaranteed!”

Slime was founded in Hamburg in 1979 and became one of the style-defining bands of the 1980s in their genre. With their anti-fascist lyrics they influenced the history of the Deutchpunk movement. 

In autumn 2017 the band’s current studio album ‘Hier und Jetzt’ was released.

ENGLISH LYRICS

Herzlich willkommen in der Scheiße!
Was glaubst Du wo Du hier bist, hast Du Flipflops an?!
Sabbel die Leute hier nicht voll!
Hör lieber zu, wenn Du hier draußen überleben willst!
Ich weiß, bis jetzt war alles nur’n großes Abenteuer,
aber der Winter kommt bald
und dann werden wir ja sehen ob deine Eier so dick sind
wie deine Fresse groß…du Opfer!

Blutender Junkie am Bahnsteig, irgendwer hat in den Fahrstuhl geschissen
Secus ham‘ scheiß schlechte Laune, Zeit mich zu verpissen
Scheiße, ich brauch‘ neue Schuhe
Scheiße, ich brauch‘ noch ‘ne Nase
Scheiße, ich brauch neue Zähne
Doch ich bin der Wolf, Du der Hase
Chorus:
Ich hab keine Wahl, es geht ums nackte Überleben
Frag mich jetzt bloß nicht wo ich war
Lass mich einfach nur hier sitzen, ich will nicht drüber reden
Geh schon mal vor- ich komm schon klar
Ich komm schon klar!

Messer gezückt wegen gar nix, war mal wieder knapp vor’n paar Tagen
Willst’n jetzt damit, Du Giftzwerg? Hast Du mir irgendwas zu sagen?
Scheiße! Der Junge will’s echt wissen
Scheiße! Der Junge der hat Klöten
Scheiße! Der Junge ist randvoll
Ich will weder sterben, noch töten

Chorus:
Ich hab keine Wahl, es geht ums nackte Überleben…

Kohle gemacht und verschwendet, War mal wieder großzügig, heute
So läuft das nunmal, hier im Rudel, Jeder Wolf teilt seine Beute
Scheiße! Die Jungs sind auf Sendung
Scheiße! Das Rudel bewegt sich
Scheiße! Schlichten versucht, aber geht nicht
Pack schlägt sich, Pack verträgt sich
Chorus:
Ich hab keine Wahl, es geht ums nackte Überleben…

Welcome to the shit!
Where do you think you are here, are you wearing flip-flops ?!
Don’t drool over the people here!
Better listen if you want to survive out here!
I know it was all just a great adventure until now
but winter is coming soon
and then we’ll see if your balls are that thick
as big as your face … you victim!

Bleeding junkie on the platform, someone shit in the elevator
Secus are in a bad mood, time to piss off
Shit, I need ‘new shoes
Shit, I need another nose
Shit, I need new teeth
But I am the wolf, you the rabbit
Chorus:
I have no choice, it’s all about survival
Don’t ask me now where I’ve been
Just let me sit here, I don’t wanna talk about it
Go ahead- I’ll be fine
I’ll be fine!

Knife drawn because of nothing, was again just a few days ago
Do you want to do it now, you poisonous dwarf? Do you have anything to say to me?
Crap! The boy really wants to know
Crap! The boy who has balls
Crap! The boy is full to the brim
I don’t want to die or kill

Chorus:
I have no choice, it’s about bare survival …

Coal made and wasted, was once again generous, today
That’s how it works, here in a pack, every wolf shares its prey
Crap! The boys are on the air
Crap! The pack moves
Crap! Tried to arbitrate, but not possible
Pack strikes itself, pack is compatible
Chorus:
I have no choice, it’s about bare survival …
