Max Von Rap – Wish I Had A Kawasaki (1984)

Posted in Music with tags , on April 29, 2018 by Fanning Sessions

We recently had a comment from someone with a Max Von Rap VHS looking to contact the band. Happily a DVD is now winging it’s way to Joe Rex. With Max Von Rap in mind we decided to see if we couldn’t chase down their elusive 1984 single and thanks to Ken Connor we did just that.

Max Von Rap were Joe Rex (bass & vocals), Mick Finnegan (guitar), Ulli Hoffman (synths) and Rob McKahy (drums). Dennis Herlihy produced. If you like this you should check out this 1986 demo to which we are very partial.

Mick Finnegan was previously in Nun Attax and later in Expresso Mambo. Rob McKahey was and still is a member of Stump!. Pat O’Connell was later a member of The Atrix. This track possibly features Mark Van Dam (saxophone) and Jerry Fehily of Hothouse Flowers (drums). Thanks to RiochtNaSaor for the photo.
