Sturm und Twang

During my isolation days I found a compilation released in 1995 by Rough Trade. Sturm und Twang (a wordplay with storm and compulsion) was a compilation of German post punk bands mostly from Hamburg that was a great overview about what German bands are able to do almost 30 years ago. Beside Blumfeld another song on this compilation stood the test of time for me. Freiwillige Selbstkontrolle (voluntary self contol, an institute giving a recommendation of age-rating for movies and games) or short F.S.K. are a band originally formed in Munich playing a kind of arty new wave with the intention bringing together country and post-punk. Like The Mekons they released many great songs in this genre and they played them with a big smile on their faces.

They were also a band John Peel liked much. He invited them several times for a session. And he wasn't wrong. So I think it will be right to feature some more songs by them once again.
