ZK - Leichen Pflasterten Ihren Weg 1982

Last month this year and let's start December with a nostalgia record by ZK, a German punk band from Düsseldorf, which is regarded as the predecessor of the group Die Toten Hosen. At first they called themselves the Central Committee of the City Center, but in the scene, the abbreviation ZK was established. ZK was founded in November 1978 by Campino, Ralf Isbert and Claus Fabian. The first performance took place in March 1979 in the Ratinger Hof. The guitarist's position changed at first. It was not until the end of 1980 that he was filled with Andreas von Holst. The group initially played punkrock, but then continued to develop their style and integrated rock and rockabilly elements into their music. The humorous texts of the group were particularly noticeable. They were, for example, filthy phobias, cowboys sitting in bathtubs, or Christmas men with unwanted presents. In 1979 and 1980 they released a single and in 1981 followed the awsome debut album Eddie's Salon. On 21. November 1981, ZK gave their last concert at the "Okie-Dokie" in Neuss. The band members then went on different paths. This live album is so to speak an excellent compilation of all hits with nice announcements and a funny atmosphere. A great band!
