Eine Geschichte....when the krauts exploded

"Yes, the German New Wave (Deutsche Neue Welle) ofcourse produced as many "try-but-not-succeed" acts as any hype, but, still, there was something special to this 1980-84 period. Bands like DAF, Der Plan and the lasting Einstuerzende Neubauten really succeeded in doing the punk adagium "Do Something ELSE Please" justice, resulting in music tingling with experiment, difference, aggression and eh...art. But it rocked, or in the case of Palais Schaumburg it funked! Everybody with a love for real experimental pop music should set up a little Neue Deutsche Welle collection. Include the debut LP by these Hamburgers! Songs like Wir bauen eine neue Stadt and Madonna sound as fresh now as way back in the 80s. The sound production is a joke. But a good one. Learn German for Holger Hiller's lyrics. They ooze freedom and childishness and together with the upside downish music they set Palais Schaumburg totally apart from Anglo-Saxon rock tradition. Which in this case is not a mere cliche but a real recommendation"
