The Foreign Correspondent Returns - Stories About German Rock Music # 41

In the course of the unspeakable New German Wave (NDW) a band became very successful, although they were not typically for this music direction stamped by kitsch. Nevertheless, Extrabreit was no typical NDW band, but made German rock music with also critical texts. They saw itself as a punk group which had to owe it only of the NDW that they were so successful. On her website in addition they said: „Yes, we have just taken part in the shit!“

For me they never were a part of the hype, but a classical punk / rock group which has sung on in her mother tongue. About all years away have remained Extrabreit to her style loyal and have played strongly from guitars stamped songs. Unfortunately, they could never again go back to the success of her first both long-playing records, however, they succeeded over and over again in publishing above-average records for German relations.

Extrabreit - Kokain
Extrabreit - Der Präsident ist tot
Extrabreit - Polizisten
Extrabreit - Junge, wir können so heiss sein

Dirk hat gesagt…

They were one of the very first bands I saw live in February '85 when the WDR Musik-Convoy truck came to halt in Monschau, along with The Times, Southside Johnny and The Jukes and The Bangles. On that day Susannah Hoffs smiled at me when passing me by on her way to the stage and my life never was the same again!
