Polka Uber Alles

by The Polkaholics

We search and destroy and polka. By playing polka with a power-trio rock setup (guitar, bass, drums) we aim to fuse the moshpit with the beergarden. Fun for everyone but especially those people, like ourselves, with a demented point of view.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
They said it couldn’t be done, but since 1997 The Polkaholics have been mixing doses of punk rock and polka in a high-speed blender, creating a souped-up sound that fuses the beergarden with the mosh pit. As noted in the Chicago Sun-Times, “The Polkaholics wreak havoc to both traditional polka and rock music!” As evidence of their ability to break down musical barriers, The Polkaholics have performed in some of the most prestigious Chicago music venues including the Metro, House of Blues, the Vic, the Chicago Symphony Center, the Chicago Cultural Center, and of course the Baby Doll Polka Club. And they have even been featured internationally on the incredible “American Polka” CD recently released on the Trikont label out of Munich Germany. With founder Dandy Don Hedeker on guitar and vocals, Jolly James Wallace on bass and vocals, and Action Jackson Wilson on drums and vocals, The Polkaholics use a power rock trio format to put the umph into the oompah-POW, blasting polka screaming into the 21st century.

Polka Uber Alles
This CD is just chokkas full of fun. You can tell just by listening to these guys that they're having far too much fun. All of their CDs bring a smile to my face and I just can't help singing along. Even though you'd think that punk and polka shouldn't go together, it turns out that they not only do, but should.

Frothy Intoxication
This CD is 14 tracks of frothy intoxicating anti-pretentious lowbrow wacky brew. After listening I felt full of beer, when I'd been sipping tea. When you listen first adjust the treble, I liked it cut 4 db, this made the tones smooth and clearer. The first highlight is the first track. They're the pimps of polka punk for sure. This song has an infectious melody and lyrics, and I found myself singing parts of it later. The second song is similarly contagious. Beer Beer Breakfast of Champions yah yah yah yah is a funny pseudoteutonic waltz. Watsch n Platter instrumentally shows how a harmonically driven guitar has the vibe of a horn section, and it is meticulously layered to gorgeous effect. My favorite vocal is "Too Smart Polka," a politically corrected rephrasing of Arthur Godfrey's million-selling October 1947 polka hit.
