helden. just for one day. post-punk prae-insignificance: tübingen 1978-1984.

in the early eighties of the last century the southwestgerman university of tübingen was the centre of young noise and pop activists (with purple flashes) occupying capital equipment and ignoring outdated factors of production an distribution. they used punk and avantgarage to attack the rotten system and to attack even more eagerly the even more rotten music industry. the new music was almost exclusively published on hand-copied compact-cassettes with xeroxed covers: fast, cheap and subversive. in january 1984 the battle was won and one handke hesselbach compiled a nostalgic retrospection of most of the fighting units involved: 90 minutes of mayhem, peace and outstanding. funny.

some of these bands became almost popular in their part of the backyard, some of them are still around refusing to get boring or bored and most of them have vanished into obscurity. some information survived and can be accessed and complemented at our wiki. and the rest is up to you.
