V/A - Vorwärts [Tape] 1987

Here's a tape which I bought during my civil service in Lüneburg 1990. Vorwärts is the first publication of the young Hamburg label L'Age D'Or and with bands from the so-called Hamburger Schule (named after a musical current in Germany during the 1980s and early 1990s. With some active bands and artists it is still present. It is encompassing elements from punk, grunge and experimental pop, and featuring intelligent lyrics. It established new grounds for the use of German language in pop music). Was interesting for me at the time, paid five DeutschMark and the bands are, of course totally unknown to me. But I find very interesting bands on it and a few manage to release one or two records and I bought a couple. The sound on this tape ranked from Pop, Alternative to Punk (no Hardcore) and is a nice listening. Overall, an interesting little gem exceptional HH music.
