Propeller –Apache Woman

Propeller –Apache Woman/ Devil’s Symphony –Philips 6003145 (1971 Germany)

Propeller were formed by original Rattles members Achim Reichel and Herbert Hilderbrandt and they released this fine single along with a self titled album in ‘71. Apache Woman is pretty raw, earthy and great fun. The lyrics are probably due to them watching too many Winnetou movies (Lex Barker!) with Apache Womenfolk dancing to the Union????, but the brutal stomping is most engaging. Devil’s Symphony is really wild as well with pounding piano in a Sonics kind of way…
