In 1980 DEO were formed in Oberhausen (Ruhrpott). On 'Innovative Communication', the record label of Klaus Schulze, the band released their only album, which they advertises with the slogan "with hell drive to the ruhr area. "We say what we think. We do not operate under the sledgehammer approach, but we still want to stimulate thinking. But always extremely pleasant and fresh", said the band 1982 in the Bravo. In fact, they were able to convince their lyrics with charme and a good choice of words. Kurt Hein was later replaced by Klaus Kranz and 1983 the band split after one single and one album. They were not professional musicians, each following a profession by: Harald Hoffmann was a photographer, Klaus Kranz was an electrical engineer, Andreas P. studied social pedagogy and Christoph A. studied languages. The quartet plays a solid wave/punkrock sound with a good dose of electronics... not bad.
