This record was released in 1984, but I don't think anybody noticed this. Die Zimmermänner were a band including amongst others Timo Blunck (of Palais Schaumburg fame) and Detlef Diederichsen (brother and co-worker of famous DD Diedrich Diederichsen, first in german SOUNDS (deceased 01/83) and later SPEX, now a crazy professor.
Their first release was a single (posted above on this blog) on Zick Zack in Aug. 1980 as ZZ 7 "Eva, Jürgen + Max b/w Klein + doof, So froh".
Jolly Ska sounds, very easy to the ear, great music!
The next release was the 7" "Ein halbes Jahr b/w Kultur" ZZ 36 early in 81 that looked like an old Hippie band but sounded great (posted above
on this blog).
In 1982 they released their first LP "1001 Wege Sex zu machen ohne daran Spaß zu haben" ZZ 1001, unfortunately I don't have it but Dorfdisco Braunsfeld
has it. The fantastic single "Erwin, das tanzende Messer" ZZ 40 was a small hit in the upcoming hype for NDW, only have it on tape, but it was a great song!
One of their finest was "Anja", a perfect POP single they released in 1983 as ZZ 44, and then came "Goethe"!
The No. 1 german poet as a namesake for a pop LP!
But they did it, wonderful conversations on love, leaving and being lost.
I found this LP in 87 in a bargain bin, having almost forgotten about them. But once I put this one on the player, it became one of my favorite LPs of all times! This is very delicate POP music, not much to do with the other stuff that was released on the demise of NDW.
