DIE SKEPTIKER - Die Anderen Bands EP 1989

Very cool debut record by Die Skeptiker, founded 1986 in East-Berlin by Eugen (vocals), Andreas, Christoph (guitars), Andreas (bass) and Marcel (drums) and they were part of the so-called Die anderen Bands (The Other Bands), a conceptual summary for alternative music bands in the last years of the G.D.R. and characterized among other things by more frequent use of open or hidden system-critical lyrics and many participants coined the turn of 1989 with. The band is one of the few which could gain a foothold in unified Germany even after the "turnaround" and was more or less successful. After two demo tapes and the rising popularity of the band the Berlin label Amiga was forced to release this EP plus the debut album 'Harte Zeiten'. Then numerous LP's, Gigs, etc followed and in 2000 the band broke up temporarily. 2006 was the 20th anniversary of the band and since then they keep rockin'. My special thx to iNgo at this point who inherit me this rare slab.
