FOREIGN TONGUES 2011 IS THE BEST ONE YET!
GERMANY TAKES HOME THE TROPHY!!
Foreign Tongues 2011 was mind blowing! The performances were incredible,
the videos were some of our best work to date and in the end it was German
entry Das Booty's oompah party music and awesome stage performance that
sent them skyrocketing to victory! Since the show their video has become
somewhat of an internet sensation, clocking over 12,000 view in just over one
week! Das ist gut! Who knows what next year's show will bring??
Scroll down for the info on all the acts that competed!!
Say wilkommen to Das Booty! They were the winners of Foreign Tongues 2011!
She is a sweet milk maid from the hills and valleys of Bavaria, he is a "strasssewise"
rapper who likes bass in his face and schnitzel on his plate. The booty milk will be flowing
freely when Das Booty bring their unique unpasteurized oompah party music to the
Foreign Tongues stage. Get tutti fruitti! Go Das Booty!!
DEBIDOL FROM HOLLAND!!
De laatste vreemde talen vermelding is eindelijk aangebroken. Zeg hallo tegen de manier waarop Debidol van Amsterdam! Ze zijn een popgroep die zijn gevormd door de Nederlandse National Health Service om te proberen en het bewustzijn van hoofdluis te verhogen in de Nederlandse discotheken. Hun aanstekelijke merk van educatieve reggae heeft echt geslagen een zenuw met de Nederlandse bevolking en ze hebben zelfs hun eigen tekenfilmserie! Zeker om ze te vangen in dit jaar op Bestival waar ze hun eigen soundsystem / informatiekiosk hebben.
SCIATIKUS FROM SWEDEN!
The second entry in Foreign Tongues 2011 cames from Sweden. They were called Sciatikus and
they are the most popular emotional rock band in all of Scandinavia. We heard heard a rumour
that thousands of Swedish teenagers were planning to camp outside the Bethnal Green Working
Men's Club with hope of catching a glimpse of their idols before they performed their massive anthem
Syndrom of a Nothing. Their act even clinmaxed with a stage dive into the crowd!!
PINO ZOZZONI FROM ITALY!
With only one week to go, Italy revealed their entry in Foreign Tongues! His name is Pino Zozzoni
and he is a "fashion photographer" from Milan and also the owner of one of the largest roller discos in Italy.
Pino spends most of his time divided between the flashing lights of the disco and the glowing red light
of the darkroom. His portfolio is said to be very extensive although when we asked to see some examples of
his work, he stopped replying to our emails. Nevertheless, we were thrilled to have him onboard for what
was the best Foreign Tongues yet.
PSI FROM ROMANIA!
For ther first timer ever, Romania entered Foreign Tongues!! And what an entry it was!
This act is called PSI which we think means "pounds per square inch". Not a lot of info came
with the press pack and our Romanian is a bit patchy but we think he worked in a car factory
where he must have been injured in some way. The only other information we received was
that PSI requested a jar of pickles for the backstage area. Your guess is as good as mine!
GIDEON GOODECHILDE FROM CORNWALL!
Goode news! The UK entered Foreign Tongues 2011! Oh wait a minute, it's no it didn't, it's the independent
nation of Cornwall! This was the official Cornish entry, Gideon Goodechilde. He is a raconteur, poet and accomplished
medieval chef. He comes from a long line of Cornish folk musicians and is a direct descendant of King Arthur's personal
lute player. We were thrilled to have him at Foreign Tongues and he was definately a crowd favorite
coming in second place behind Das Booty!
VARTAN FROM ARMENIA!
We were extremely excited to announce that Armenia entered Foreign Tongues for the first time!
This is Vartan. He is a goat herder who has recently taken the Armenian entertainment world by
storm with his passionate romantic balladry. Very little is known about Vartan. He is very reclusive and
has spent much of the past few years alone in the Armenian hills with his animals. Some say this is because
he was cast out of his village due to an inter species sex scandal. We at Hot Breath are never
ones to judge and were honoured to have him at this years show.
