Gabi Delgado and Robert Görl fronted Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft (D.A.F.) were an experimental electronic/electro/industrial group active from 1979 until the late 80s, proclaiming they had fulfilled the concept. For fans of Kraftwerk, Laibach etc. this collection houses four albums with a bonus vinyl of remixes (including Boys Noize and Giorgio Moroder) as well as two unreleased tracks, and a load of goodies.

Die Kleinen Und Die Bösen

The 1980 sophomore LP from the Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft gets the reissue treatment from Groenland (Neu!, William Fitzsimmons). The A-side, produced by Conny Plank, finds the common ground between Suicide, Einstuerzende Neubauten and the Pet Shop Boys, while the B-side showcases the fury of the band’s live show. Any record that can count itself as a favourite of Simon Reynolds is going to be worth your time.

Gold Und Liebe

In 1981, Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft released their fourth album, the Conny Plank-produced Gold und Liebe. Of course, the D.A.F. boys are in a sexy synthy mood, pushing their electropunk power onto the listener with excellent lusty power. Gold und Liebe is here reissued by Gronland on CD and as an LP.

Für Immer

The fifth and final album from the duo of Gabi Delgado-López and Robert Görl came out in 1982. Content ranges from the jaunty pop of Geheimnis to more stern stuff like Die Lippe and Die Götter Sind Weiss. It’s a bit more varied than previous work, but as ever finds a nice balance between punishing and fun. Reissued on LP and CD.

Produkt Der Deutsch-Amerikanische Freundschaft

Produkt Der Deutsch-Amerikanische Freundschaft was the debut album from groundbreaking German band D.A.F. They found fame later as a two piece but this release sees them at double that number and with a very different sound. This is sprawling experimental noise rock with a very obvious Can influence and a sound that predated the likes of Sonic Youth in the noise rock stakes. Certainly a mile away from their later leather 'n' synth combination.
