Deutsch-Amerikanische Freundschaft/D.A.F./DOS: Live in Wiesbaden/Wartburg, Germany. June 18th, 1981
"Dance the Mussolini, move your behind, clap your hands, and now the Adolf Hitler, and now the Jesus Christ, and now the communism ..." Lyric excerpt from the song Der Mussonlini
What we have here is a live bootleg cassette of two shows by DAF(Deutsch-Amerikanische Freundschaft).
Formed in 1978 featuring Gabriel "Gabi" Delgado-López (vocals), Robert Görl (drums, percussion, electronic instruments), Kurt "Pyrolator" Dahlke (electronic instruments), Michael Kemner (bass-guitar) and Wolfgang Spelmans (guitar). Kurt Dahlke was replaced by Chrislo Haas (electronic instruments, bass-guitar, saxophone) in 1979.
DAF were very influential electrpunk/NDW from Düsseldorf, Germany. Starting off more as a punk group that incorporated electronics to eventually becoming, what John Peel referred to them as The Grandfathers of Techno.
Their story is still a little fuzzy to me. I do know they split for some time and reunited. To this day, they still exist, but only featuring two members. Hence the use of DOS at the end of their name towards the middle of their career.
Worth checking out. You can find some of their records and singles on Mute Records as well as Virgin Records.
