As I promised yesterday here is a (or rather the other) famous band from Düsseldorf, Kraftwerk can take it.
This is ZK.
A punk band with little experience on their instruments, but the will to perform. They really started the sub-genre of Fun-Punk, later completely and fantastically occupied by Die Ärzte! They only released two singles and two LPs and here you get the Lps, unfortunately I don't own the singles.
ZK - Eddie's Salon 1981
ZK - Leichen pflastern ihren Weg 1982
There is relatively little info on the web, which astonished me. You find something here
You can buy a collection here
And you can find the third single by Die Toten Hosen, the band that grew from ZK on 7 inch Punk
. You have to search on the site, cause somehow the direct link doesn't want to duplicate. Probably it may not be online anymore and I did not make copy...
I remember, the church where hey shot the video for Bommerlunder had to be re-consecrated after the shooting, featuring Fassbinder performer Kurt Raab.
A special version is here for you! They somehow contacted Rap Star Fab Five Freddy and made him adding his skills to their work. I do not know who did what, but the result is special. Back in the days it sounded ok, because Hip-Hop was not yet so widely known, but today it sounds a little odd, yet still feet-moving! Back then I made a remix with two tape recorders, but unfortunately I can't find the tape... (in the meantime I did. You can hear the result here
.)The spelling mistake is original!
Die Toten Hosen aka The increadible T.H. Scratchers starring Freddy Love 12" 1983
I just found out that these old LPs sell for loads of money on certain internet pages, so maybe I shouldn't post them here. Hmmmm, what would the Great Gonzo do?
Fuck it! Destroy the prices! Put everything online! Give artists state funding or welfare, so everybody can enjoy art!
