Teenage Bottlerocket drop their fourth EP – American Deutsch Bag With Fat Wreck Chords

Teenage BottlerocketWyoming pop punk band Teenage Bottlerocket dropped their fourth EP to date – American Deutsch Bag with San Francisco-based label Fat Wreck Chords (Fat Mike – NOFX).

Featuring tracks like “Ich bin Auslander und Spreche Nicht Gut Deutsch” and “I’m the One Smoking Marijuana Motherfucker”, it’s safe to say that this short and ever so sweet EP hits home for me in more ways than one.

I took German for three years in high school so the EP title alone possess a rather a nostalgic lure for me and then let’s just say that the second track is just awesome for obvious reasons. Then you have the last and third track, a rendition of the late Tony Sly’s “Via Munich” (another German reference) from The Songs of Tony Sly: A Tribute, which is just in its own right, episch (epic).

Clocking in at just under four minutes, this EP is a must grab for all you punky punks out there.

Here’s what Ray from TBR had this to say about the bands’ newest EP – American Deutsch Bag:

“On Teenage Bottlerocket’s last tour in Europe, we made friends with a dude in a Lethal Weapon 2 hat. We referred to him as a Deutsch bag. He was a good sport and found the insult endearing. I’ve always loved Germany. I took German in high school and we sang alot of songs. One of the songs was entitled “Ich bin Auslander und Spreche Nicht Gut Deutsch”. This is roughly translated “I’m not from here and my German sucks”. We decided to make it a pop punk song. If I screw up any of the pronunciation it’s because my German sucks, it’s a pretty good excuse to fuck up the words. We also included a new song about smoking reefer and a song by our dear friend Tony Sly called “Via Munich”. We recorded the 7″ at the Blasting Room with Andrew Berlin. Everything seemed to fall into place. Guten tag.”

So, good news is the guys are on tour, bad news, you have to wait until New Years Eve to see them in The States, seeing that it’s a predominantly European tour with a dash of ‘Merica.
