If only Germany hadn't lost its South Pacific colonies along with the First World War, maybe there would be better beer there!

Ditto on the good beers in Hawai'i My favorite is at the Worlds Westernmost Brewpub the Waimea Brewing Co. in Kauai. Their motto is "Last Beer Before Tomorrow". Great beers and a nifty little Brewpub that has excellent eatz. My order of choice is their seared Tuna which comes with 100% real Wasabi. Always ask for extra, well worth the trip.

Absolutely, those look yucky. Again, just proof what the Polynesian cocktail had become by the mid-80s (approximate date of the clip) in the public's image: Candy colored sugar water with umbrellas.

Now, yes, for sure. But perhaps not in the early 1960s. If you listen to the earlier version of the song in this clip (which is only a slide show for the band):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-f0_JUSeuH8&feature=related

...with Paul rockin' on the piano, it sounds much better. I don't think that PRIMO beer existed in 1963 yet, and it was probably difficult to get import beers in the islands. Anyway, not to be taken literally, the title must have come as a German counter-reaction to the Hawaii wave that also hit European shores by that time.

You might be right. What is the best Chinese import beer to get nowadays? In my opinion it's Tsingtao. And here is why: Tsing Tau was usurped as a German colony at the turn of the century. The Germans razed the Chinese huts and shacks and built a model town with water works, canalization, a hospital, a Chinese/German University, and....a brewery!



It is still the only Chinese city with European style architecture today.

You can see Tsing Tau in a little extra section on the upper left of this map, which shows the German "Protectorates" in the South Seas from 1885-1919:



During this period Germany "owned" a considerable chunk of New Guinea, plus the Admiralty Islands, the Carolines with Palau, the Marshall Islands, and part of Samoa. This is how many early museums in Germany filled their coffers with South Sea art, which then in turn inspired the artistic avantgarde in Germany (see TIKI MODERN).

In sort of a parallel to this, when Germany held Tsingtao as a colony before World War One, they built breweries in that city. After the Germans left, the breweries were taken over by the Japanese and later the Chinese. The craft that the locals learned from the Germans and the breweries became Tsigntao beer.

So at least that explains Chinese beer!

Aaah sssoooh! You don't say....velly intellesting.... ....

Say, Tp, did you READ the other posts after the quote you replied to? Or did you plan to post this (very true and pertinent) information sooner, but didn't get to it, and then posted it without reading the other posts (hint: mine!) ? Or, maybe, though in my strange convoluted writing style I had thought I had already told this tale, but it did not come across, and you just decided to translate it into intelligible English.

I apologize for pointing this out like a stickler, I just don't understand the apathy of so many who read this and then just move on. I mean don't you want to find out? I like to banish confusion, and clarify things wherever I can...

Aahh, Heino!!!
I'd forgotten to look him up, once YouTube made the possibility of seeing him anytime possible!!
You know, BigBro, there's another reason he wears the dark glasses besides white eyebrows: his wandering eye! I saw one video of him long ago in which he was not wearing his trademark specs, and he has a wandering eye (literally, not figuratively)! *Not* what the producers figured would go over big!

I am now going to waste the rest of my day watching every Heino video on YouTube.

Dammit.

*Thanks* BigBro.

P.S. You may now return to your previously scheduled tikicentric topic.

I am sooo sorry!

Isn't a wandering eye a possible result of frequent cocaine use? I remember in the 80s, I was working on a "four day wonder" (name for a certain genre of feature length film shot in 4 days) as 2nd AC/loader, and the focus puller was partial to that white stuff, and on day 2 lost control of his one eye, it kept wandering inward. Not good for focus pulling, in any film genre.

Check out that one U-tube B&W news reel clip from 1967 that shows how producer Ralph Bendix "made" Heino. Heino in the studio, a much more generic young man, is being told how to sing. I like the weird 70s end result better, though he has a certain neo-nazi appeal here, especially with that song...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F5kYK6VUck0&feature=related

But back to .....the German South Seas, perhaps?

On Heino's early LPs his glasses were quite light and you could easily see his wandering eye.



early Heino


late Heino

Yes, I have quite the Heino collection in my record library.
