about

Im Mittelpunkt dieses groovigen Songs steht ein anrüchiges Saxophon-Solo, das vom lässigen Sprechgesang der Sängerin und des Schlagzeugers eingerahmt wird. Das Statement der Band macht augenzwinkernd klar, wer im Mittelpunkt des Songs steht: 'Big Toni Theme ist die Geschichte von einem schlimmen Finger mit Saxophon. Wir nehmen euch mit auf die Straßen von Potsdam ’71. Hier kontrolliert Big Toni das Territorium. Er's immer dort draußen, predigt fiese Brasslines auf heißen New Orleans Beats und er hat Liebe für euch alle! Mach'n Spaziergang durch die Nachbarschaft mit diesem außergewöhnlichen Gentleman und lass dir zeigen, wo ein paar der Wurzeln dieser Band im Boden verankert sind.

lyrics

Back when I lived it 71
it used to be guitar, bass and drums
We heard about this guy in Potsdam West
who was supposed to blow a mean old sax
He stepped into our little funky lair
and brought the pain upon them fools out there
And just in case you're still wondering who
right here is big f'in Toni making love to you (it goes)

Aha - shiiii
Aha

Is that a bird or a plane ? Floatin' up in the sky ?
No it's that slick horn playa always comin' in high
Is it 'Bird' or 'Trane' blowin lines on the tracks
No, that's old Toni Kowalski - the Tyrano Saurus Sax
Late for rehearsal - late to the beat
but not one second too slow - when it's time to go eat
And just in case you're still not knowing the truth
brother Toni, plese come on step up to the booth (I'm sayin')

Aha - shiiii
Aha

Ey Toni, bist du bereit, Alter?

Shiii - Aha
