“We are pleased to announce EN´s first compilation release called "Greatest Hits" end of the year. The Album will reflect a section through 35 years of band work and includes your - and our - favourite tracks. Some of them have been given a new mix…” E.N.
A concept of “conceptlessness” was created at that time from a spontaneous idea (many thought it was an April Fool’s joke when the Einstürzende Neubauten first stood on the stage at Berlin’s “Moon” on April 1, 1980; more than 35 years ago), from which the “brilliant dilettantes” developed their own strategy against social and musical architecture using metal pipes, feathers and machines. In keeping, Blixa Bargeld constructed metaphor-laden poetry, around which unique worlds of sound were built up from objects of the most varied origins. The band dis- covered sounds beyond the pain barrier, the beauty of dissonance and the aesthetics of the scrapyard. They are regarded as the most important engines in the development of new musical strategies. Hardly another German band has characterized the music landscape as lastingly as Einstürzende Neubauten. Their influence on the music world was and is as great as their timeless character. After 35 years of career, it was about time for a first ever ‘Greatest Hits’ release. Read on below...
