      "Alles Ist Gut"

      Label: Gr鰊land Records (2018)

      Not only did they release scads of great electropunk dance noise, but they actually wrote a song about dancing with Adolf Hitler! That聮s right, they were Germans with an actual sense of humor! And not only that, but the brutal Thump! Thump! Thump! of their drums evoked the sound of 88-millimeter shells falling on Stalingrad. What聮s more, vocalist Gabriel 聯Gabi聰 Delgado-L贸pez kinda sounded like what I imagine Josef Goebbels might have sounded like had he forgone the whole loser Nazi propaganda shtick and gone the club music route instead. In short, they made WWII rock!

      D.A.F., as Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft are more popularly known, were formed as a five piece in 1978, but attrition soon whittled the band down to a duo consisting of vocalist Delgado-L贸pez and Robert G枚rl on drums, percussion, and electronic instruments. D.A.F. released seven LPs over the course of its career, and said LPs run the gamut from quite listenable to dead-raising cacophonies. My fave is 1981聮s Alles Ist Gut (or 聯Everything聮s Cool聰). And not just because the 聯Deutsche Phono-Akademie,聰 whoever they are, awarded Alles Ist Gut the coveted 聯Schallplattenpreis聰 Award, whatever that is.

      The first thing you should know about D.A.F. is that Delgado-L贸pez聮s odd phrasing isn聮t a figment of my imagination. Delgado himself told an interviewer, 聯The singing isn聮t like rock 聮n聮 roll or pop singing. It聮s sometimes like in a Hitler speech, not a Nazi thing, but it聮s in the German character, that crack! crack! crack! way of speaking.聰 So now we not only have the Thump! Thump! Thump! of shells exploding all over the place, we have the Crack! Crack! Crack! of rifle fire as well.
