AUSTRIA ISN'T SHAPED LIKE A BIZARRE GUITAR BY ACCIDENT
... IT'S BECAUSE WE ROCK!!!
ROCKABILLY MADE IN AUSTRIA VOL. IV
From the country that brings Kaiserschmarrn, Sachertorte, Mozartkugeln, Mannerschnitten, and of course Wiener Schnitzel to you, here it is: Volume four of our Schnitzelbilly – Rockabilly Made in Austria Vinyl series. But our country is not only well-known for its culinary delicacies – maybe you have heard about Austrian villages with names that sound a bit strange in the English language: Assling, Stocking and Fucking. But in order to end the whole thing in a serious way: Also psychoanalysis was founded in Austria by Sigmund Freud. His teachings are still used today and hotly debated - worldwide.
