James Last’s ‘happy music’ will be playing when we all ascend to The Great Charity Shop Record Bin In the Sky. Having recorded with RZA and Jan Delay, he’s ahead re: questionable rap aesthetics, as well. Even the most vaguely intrepid DJ has borne witness to Last in an endless number of guises via his album covers: James Last on a rainbow-coloured tandem bicycle, James Last in a tricorne hat holding a bucket of French fries, James Last washing Helmut Kohl’s undergarments. In fact, the only guise we haven’t viewed the orchestral schlagerpop kingpin in is the death grip of good taste. But then, bad taste is the taste that lasts.
