Moving on swiftly from the cerebral end of early 1980's German Electronica, to what normal Germans were doing with their synthesisers at home of an evening.Gathering around the SH101 and drum box for a sing-a-long, donning unwashed lederhosen ,swinging a foaming flagon of strong continental lager to an efficient 4/4 beat.
The advent of DAF lead to a legion of similar bedroom synth bands, bestowing the virtues of a hard regular,dare I say, marching beat? Overlaid with minimal hard synth sounds,usually sequenced for maximum accuracy and efficiency. A musical version of the Volkswagen , economical,reliable, and robust. This stuff is the German successor to Om-pah musik, that unwittingly reflects German folk culture, kind of frightening,with a concealed aggression,but very efficient and practical,useful; Volksmusik.
