Robert Görl (DAF) finally releases lost Paris tapes on vinyl and CD

This is great news for the DAFficcionados: Robert Görl (DAF) releases the lost Paris tapes on vinyl and CD. But let’s rewind in time. In the early 1980s Robert Görl and Gabi Delgado were quite successful as the duo DAF, until they split up in 1982 following a dispute. In 1986, after a short-lived attempt at a reunion, they broke up again, and this time for a significantly longer period of time. Regarding this era Robert Görl said that it was a very difficult time for him and that he was deeply disappointed in his musical partner and friend. The conflict got so big that after working on the LP “1st Step to Heaven” Görl lost all interest in making music. “The Paris tapes” holds tracks which Robert Görl recorded in the late 80ies in Paris and that he was never able to finish due to various personal problems/accidents etc. A cassette of the unfinished songs turned up years later in a suitcase he had deposited in his brother’s barn. Although the tracks aren’t produced properly you get an idea behind the artist Robert Görl and as such this release is a true document of its time. You can order […]

‘Click Interview’ with Pro Patria: ‘You Had To Feel The Pain’

Belgian formation Pro Patria has been set up by Peter Vercauteren (PVC). The band was mainly active during the 80s and rapidly became one of the most promising EBM formations from that time. As Peter explains, ‘the name Pro Patria was simply a coincidence of things; perhaps we were unconsciously influenced by the SA42-song at the time, but personally I was also obsessed with Latin, which also showed in many of the early songs’. Unfortunately things went the other way round, Pro Patria never broke through and finally stopped all activities. More than 15 years later Pro Patria was asked to play live again and Peter Vercauteren finally decided to reactivate the project. The self-released album “Back To Basics” reveal a passionate and retro-like EBM, which brought me to get in touch with Peter. (Courtesy by Inferno Sound Diaries / pics with kind permission of Jirka Blumenthal and Uwe Rudolph) Q: Can you first of all remind us how Pro Patria saw the daylight and how did you get ‘contaminated’ by the EBM-virus? Peter: Pro Patria saw the daylight halfway the eighties because of a friend who wanted to create a band and needed someone who could play keys. After […]
