"The famous german Zukunftsmusik !"
The german new wave took its innitial influences from the british punk Xplosion but soon developed a unique, distinctive sound and language of its own.
From the early punk bands(Mittagspause, SYPH) to the weird electro-anarchists (Der Plan, Pyrolator), from the arty avantgarde pop groups (Palais Schaumburg)
to the sound of Endzeit (Einstürzende Neubauten) the scene presented a variety of musical output without comparison in german pop history.
Pretty soon the music industry recognized the potential of the phenomenon,signed everyone singing in german whether new wave or not and sadly the fresh new movement quickly faded away again. - This mix presents a few of those early 80s pearls for your listening pleasure.
