Guckenheimer Sour Kraut Band: Music for Non-Thinkers
“Oompah” music played badly on purpose. Conductor Fritz Guckenheimer was in reality Richard Gump who inherited Gump’s department store in San Francisco from his father. Gump is a fascinating figure – besides being an ersatz German bandleader he was an art dealer, musician, composer, painter, author and lecturer. There’s lots of interesting info about him and the band here.
