    Warum geht es mir so dreckig?
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warum_geht ... dreckig%3F
    Studio album by Ton Steine Scherben
    Released September 1971
    Recorded Tonstudio Admiralstraße, Berlin
    Genre German rock, Protopunk
    Length 42:45
    Label David Volksmund
    Producer: Ton Steine Scherben

    Warum geht es mir so dreckig? (Why am I so miserable?) is the first album released by the German rock band Ton Steine Scherben. It includes—among other pieces—the song Macht kaputt, was euch kaputt macht (destroy what destroys you), which expressed the built-up anger of the youth of the late 1960s and early 1970s.
    In 1971, after the release of the first single "Macht kaputt, was euch kaputt macht" (rough translation: "Destroy what is destroying you"), the band went to Klaus Freudigmann's studio in Berlin to record their first album. The setup for the recordings was not ideal, and the sound quality suffered as a result. This is not surprising, as the band would only self-produce their work. As such, the recording sessions were also not entirely satisfactory. In June, Agit 883 and Rote Hilfe—anarchist and leftist political organisations respectively—organised an "informational event" about the empty buildings on the Mariannenplatz in Kreuzberg. Ton Steine Scherben were invited to play, and the teach-in turned into a party, that led to one of the first spontaneous squatting actions in Berlin. The recordings of the concert were used for the album's first side; the b-side consists of highlights of the studio recordings. The album's sound has been described as raw and energetic, but the sound quality is somewhat lacking. The fifth track, "Das Einheitsfrontlied" is not listed on the back of the album or in the booklet.

    Ton Steine Scherben Biography

    Ton Steine Scherben (German pronunciation: [ˈtoːn ˈʃtaɪnə ˈʃɛːɐ̯bən]) was one of the first and most influential German language rock bands of the 1970s and early 1980s.
    Well-known for the highly political and emotional lyrics of vocalist Rio Reiser, they became a musical mouthpiece of new left movements, such as the squatting movement, during that time in Germany and their hometown of West Berlin in particular. Today, after the band's demise in 1985, and the death of Rio Reiser in 1996, Ton Steine Scherben have retained a cult following and popularity in the related scenes. Recently, some of the remaining members have given reunion concerts.

    Band members: Rio Reiser, Dirk Schlömer, Kai Sichtermann, Funky K. Götzner, Ralph Steitz, Ralph Möbius, Jörg Schlotterer
    Band ex-members: , Wolfgang Seidel, Martin Paul, Elfie-Esther Steitz, Britta Neander, Angie Olbrich, Werner Götz, Marius Del Mestre, Nikel Pallat

    Ton Steine Scherben (Literal English translation: "Clay Stones Shards" or "Sound Stones Shards") were a German Anarchist rock band formed in 1970 in West Berlin, Germany when the members were all around 20 years of age. Singer Rio Reiser usually told journalists the name was taken from a description by pioneer archeologist Heinrich Schliemann of what he saw when he first came to the site of ancient Troy. Other members of the band claim it is a play on the name of German labor union Bau Steine Erden (Construction Stones Earths). It is also believed that the name is a tribute to The Rolling Stones.

    They are considered to have been the first genuine German-language rock band, together with Udo Lindenberg. Their first big-stage appearance was at an Open-Air on 6 September 1970 on the Fehmarn stage where Jimi Hendrix had had his last appearance directly before. The stage went up in flames while they were still playing; probably it had been set on fire by people around Hendrix who had just received news that the event's organizers had disappeared with all the cash, but many people believed that Ton Steine Scherben had set the stage on fire, which gave them tremendous credibility in the radical scene.

    Their style can be described as somewhere between the Rolling Stones and yet-to-be-invented Punk rock. All their Albums were self-published; they published few singles and are still very rarely played on most German radio stations. Their lyrics were at the beginning quite anti-capitalist and pro-socialist. They didn't think the socialism of the Soviet Union was anywhere near real socialism, but they had connections to the squatter scene and the German Red Army Faction terrorists during the time before the latter turned to violent crime and murder. Later Ton Steine Scherben toned down on socialism and added themes like freedom, love, drugs, and sadness. Most of their songs can be described as slightly mad, sometimes in a funny way, sometimes in a rather scary way. Ton Steine Scherben disbanded in 1985.
