hannover 1980. rocks off makes me spring and dance.

in the late seventies and the very early eighties of the last century the children of hitler's children, the children of cola, cold war and dutschke in the plains of the northwestgerman low lands created and elaborated a very special psychedelyric unstyle of musick: the 39 clocks of course were the spearhead of these ayers-, fowley-, rough trade noises, but a lot of (now) obscure bands antedated and shadowed them.
two years before the first 39 clocks 7" changed the world the hannover band rocks off released their first and most likely only single: stefan heidrich (vocals, guitars), thomas von strohe (bass) and rommé (drums) recorded two tracks at the shelter studios for uptight music and then vanished in the rain. jammerschade. listen, please:

easy livin' (s. heidrich)
girl on the tank (w. hänel / s. heidrich)

(both tracks are direct downloads, mp3 at 320 kbps. and just for the records: matthias was the engineer and the remix was made at tonko hannover 1980)
