High-voltage Viennese rock from Novak’s Kapelle

Novak's Kapelle

Novak’s Kapelle (Erwin Novak, Walla Mauritz, Peter Travnicek and Helge Thor) was an Austrian band that formed in 1967. They released the single “Hypodermic Needle” in 1968 and appeared on Austrian TV show Countdown in this jaw-droppingly cool performance from 1969. There’s some Freudian madness at the end. It’s Vienna after all.

Other than on compilations and expensive collectible vinyl (a 7 inch of “Hypodermic Needle” goes for $400), Novak’s Kapelle’s music is hard to find. Time for a nice CD release I say.
