Nothing obscure here. I'm no Krautrock obscurity expert. Includes Austrian artists. Easier for me, so I don't have to look up who came from where.


Falco
Nena
Kraftwerk
Trio
Propaganda
Accept
George Kranz
Alphaville
Hubert Kah
Opus


firefall mentioned Spliff. Although not one of my favorite bands (but then I'm only familiar with one album, so who am I to say), "Carbonara" is one of my favorite songs by anybody. The A-side, "Deja Vu," is great, too. Also got a BAP album tucked away somewhere that has a really killer song on it, but damned if I can remember what it's called. Not that I could spell or pronounce what it's called even if I could remember...

I think Cars and Tubes fans should approach early Spliff albums.I'm also an Accept fan,but is this important in this forum?

Hey, any band who has the, well, balls to write a song called "Balls to the Wall" is important in [i]every[/i] forum. I dare you to find me a better German heavy metal outfit fronted by a gay hobbit!

Plus, I think their 1985 album (the one with "Midnight Mover") had some new wave influences -- as did the records of a lot of metal bands who were on MTV in the mid-80s.

Spliff - 85555

Good album, but like SomebodySomewhere I am only familar with the one album, my favorite track is "Notausgang" and the rest is OK but nothing to rave about.

I only have the U.S. language version under the title, "Emergency Exit."

Thanks to the internet, the BAP album I couldn't remember the name of is "Vun drinne noh drusse." The song, "Nit fur Kooche (Teil 2)." I'm sure you guys won't have any trouble remembering that, 'cause who doesn't like a fur kooche?
