I don't think I told you this before but Schlammpeitziger is not difficult to pronounced at all. Especially if you follow my tips:

Schlammpeit = Like saying 'Shrimpy'
Zige = sounds like 'Sage'
R = Sounds like RRRR (rolled R)

So it's like saying 'Shrimpy-sage-rrrr'

I'm pretty sure that's the correct pronunciation because I did a German introductory course in 1998 (with a specialization in "Alphabet pronunciation: From A To M").

Dont Forget! 201-209-9368:
WFMU East Orange, WMFU Mount Hope, in New York City and Rockland County at 91.9FM and online at WFMU Dot org. Dagmar Krause was born in Hamburg, Germany on 4 June 1950. She began her professional career at the age of 14 as a singer in Hamburg clubs on the Reeperbahn. In 1968 she was invited to join the City Preachers (de), a contemporary folk/protest she once half-jokingly described as a German version of The Mamas & the Papas. She contributed vocals to their 1968 album Der Kürbis, das Transportproblem und die Traumtänzer (The Pumpkin, the Problem of Transport and the Dream-dancers), a spin-off from a German TV show. The City Preachers broke up in 1969, but their lead singer Inga Rumpf and Krause reunited in 1970 to record I.D. Company, the name of a studio project where each vocalist sung lead on and determined the direction of one side of the LP (Krause's side indicated her future direction with its avant-garde slant).
